The Secret

A friend of mine recommended this book and I am so glad she did. I am only half way through and I am totally moved and inspired by the ideas. The secret is nothing new....no new idea really. It is all about how powerful the mind is and how we create our own reality by our thoughts. The Secret is based on biblical principles but I would not say it is a heavily religious book. The author refers to the 'Law of Attraction' a lot in the book. I highly recommend this book! It is awsome.

I have started my apron too as Renea discusses at Pocket Full of Prettys. I can't wait to see Reneas apron because I know it is going to be cute. We just wanted to wear something that would add to the element of fun to this workshop I am doing next weekend. By the way, I believe at least 10 women will attend. I have prayed specifically for at least 10 people and I believe that they will be there. I learned this in the book. You have to 1) ask the universe (for me it is God) the thing you desire 2) Believe you will receive it 3) Receive it-act as if you have already received it. Visualize receiving it.

On another note, I just want to say that I love my blog friends. I am grateful for all of your comments and I love to read your blogs and see your creations from your hearts. I love to read about your lives and your passions. I receive so much inspiration from all of you. Happy Weekend!!!

I haven't read the book but I have the DVD and watch it often. Truly a simple idea but so powerful.

I just came here through yoli's blog - and let me tell you - the secret WORKS! last january i started hearing about it andlaughed it off. came home and saw it on oprah and realzied the messages and thoughts i was sending out could be tweaked for the better. as soon as i did that, all these crazy things came my way and still are. i can explain in detail i f you ever are curious. but after struggling for years as an artist and writer, in 12 months i got my own product line, a new job, TWO book deals, the list goes on. so i just want to say there is a reason i saw your post! stay focused, follow your heart!! hugs to you!

Lesley,

I've already posted a comment on this post, but you might check out a few more inspirational (ok...self-help LOL) books! The Beautiful Ache, Get Out of That Pit by Beth Moore, and Creating a Charmed Life by Victoria Moore are all excellent books. I've thoroughly read Get Out of That Pit and it was wonderful. I'm currently in the midst of
reading The Beautiful Ache and Creating a Charmed Life. They are
awesome as well. I, too, own just about every self-help book out
there and am always looking for a new inspiring read!

Take care!
