The Insider Book Club
by Rhonda Byrne
There is a secret which until the turn of the 20th century, was a closely guarded secret of the ruling elite. This secret has the power to make ordinary people achieve extraordinary things. It has been used by some of the most famous people on Earth (many of whom are listed in the book) to achieve massive levels of success. So, what is this secret, I hear ye ask? It's The Law of Attraction.
The Law of Attraction is a law of the universe which states that like attracts like. This law can have a dramatically positive or negative affect on us, depending on how how we think and feel as we go about our lives.
The basic premise of The Secret is that your brain is a transmitter and receiver of vibrational energy. The word “vibrational” sounds rather hippy-like, but it just means that everything can be broken down into units of energy. These units of energy literally vibrate. When you visualise yourself being rich and having everything that you want, then you are sending out a vibration of wealth. Do this consistently and you can activate the Law of Attraction. When this happens wealth will start pouring into your life. People, opportunities and money will suddenly start appearing in your life, as if by magic. The same can be said for health, love, being creative or just being content. But beware! If you focus on negative things then you can attract bad things into your life, such as accidents, poor health, poverty, poor relationships and other misfortunes. The Law of Attraction is at work on our lives – either positively or negatively - whether we are aware of it or not.
Here's a thought experiment for you to try. The next time something bad happens to you (hopefully it won't be anything too bad, but perhaps a very minor accident or something), think about what you were focusing on the day before. You might be surprised to discover that you were thinking about something negative and therefore transmitting negative vibrational energy. It this turns out to be the case then the implications for you are potentially game changing. Once you understand how this power works then you can use it to make good things happen in your life. Are you excited? Me too!
It should be noted that the author, Rhonda Byrne, is not the first person to have written about the Law of Attraction. Many others have written about this topic – the most notable being Napoleon Hill who published “The Law of Success” back in 1928. The key thing which makes Rhonda Byrne's book stand out is that it's more accessible, more engaging and (quite frankly) better written than other books which have attempted to tackle this subject.
