I do this as a public service, not to imping on the commercial value of this DVD. I've found incredible nuggets of data available through this particular DVD. I've separately blogged that people should used this DVD as Bob Proctor recommends - listening to this every day for at least 30 days in order to re-program your thinkining over to continued, habitual use of the Law of Attraction.
This transcript is only a complilation of the subtitles, adding in the quotes which appear on-screen through that DVD. There is no attempt to link the various teachers with their quotes. I've edited this transcript with an eye to readability, keeping similar thoughts together in paragraphs.
Please enjoy and comment as you wish. But buy and give "The Secret" DVD. What this transcript covers has far more meaning when you read it after having listened to this DVD several times.
A lot of people feel stuck or imprisoned or confined by their current circumstances, and I'm trying to point out that whatever your circumstances right now, that is only your current reality. And current reality will begin to change as a result of watching this and beginning to use The Secret. When you want to change your circumstances, you must first change your thinking.
Every time you look inside your mail expecting to see a bill, guess what? It'll be there. Each day you go out dreading the bill. You're never expecting anything great. You're thinking about debt You're expecting debt. So debt must show up, so you won't think you're crazy. And every day you confirm your thought... ls debt going to be there? Yes, debt's there. ls debt going to be there? Yes, debt's there. Why? Because you expected debt to be there. So it showed up, because the law of attraction is always being obedient to your thoughts.
Do yourself a favor. Expect a check.
Most people look at their current state of affairs, and they say, 'This is who I am.' That's not who you are, that's who you were. You see, if you look at your current state of affairs right now, let's say for instance that you don't have a lot of money in your bank account or you don't have the relationship that you want or your health and fitness isn't up to par. That's not who you are. That's the residual outcome of your past thoughts and actions. So we're constantly living in this residual if you will, of the thoughts and actions we've taken in the past. When you look at your current state of affairs and define yourself by that, then you doom yourself to have nothing more than the same in the future.
"All that we are is the result
of what we have thought."
Powerful processes: Gratitude
Okay, what can you do right now, to begin to turn your life around? I'll tell you two or three things.
Start making a list of things to be grateful for. Start with that, because this shifts your energy. It starts to shift your thinking.
Where before this exercise you might be focusing on what you don't have, and you might be focusing on your complaints, and you might be focusing on whatever the problems are, when you do this exercise you start to go in a different direction. You start to be grateful for all the things that you feel good about. Gratitude is absolutely the way to bring more into your life.
Every man knows that when his wife's appreciating him for the little things he does, what does he want to do? He wants to do more. It's always about appreciation. It pulls things in, it attracts support.
I've said for many years that whatever we think about and thank about we bring about.
Because that's that feeling that you have to have, and so for me it's been such a powerful exercise, every morning to get up and say, 'Thank you.' Every morning when my feet hit the floor, 'Thank you.' And then I start running through what I'm grateful for as I'm going to brush my teeth and do the things I do in the morning. And I'm not just thinking about them and doing some rote routine, but I'm putting it out there and I'm feeling the feelings of gratitude. Because as soon as you start to feel differently about what you already have, you will start to attract more of the good things. More of the things you can be grateful for.
Because you could look around and say, 'Well look, I don't have the car I want, I don't have the house I want I don't have the health I want, I don't have the spouse I want!' Whoah, back up, back up. Those are all the things you don't want. Focus on what you already have that you're grateful for. And it might be, you have the eyes to watch this. It might be the clothes that you have.
Yes, you might prefer something else, and you might get something else pretty soon if you start feeling grateful for what you have.
I think everybody goes through times when they say, 'Oh man, things aren't working right or things are going bad', and there were some things going on in my family, and I found a rock. And I'm just sitting here holding this rock. You might see me carrying it around. I found a rock, I stuck it in my pocket, and I said, 'You know what? Every time I touch this rock, I'm going to think of something that I'm grateful for.' So every morning when I get up in the morning, I pick it up off the dresser, I put it in my pocket, and I go through the things that I'm grateful for. At night, what do you do? You empty your pocket, and there it is again.
And I've had some different experiences with that. I've had some amazing experiences.
I had a guy from South Africa, he saw me drop it and he said, 'What is that?' I explained it to him, so he started calling it a... 'Gratitude rock.' Two weeks later I got an email from him, from South Africa. And he said, 'My son is dying from a rare disease. It's a type of Hepatitis. Would you send me three gratitude rocks?' They were just rocks I found off the street, you know. So I said, 'Sure.' I had to make sure that the rocks were very special, and so I went out to the stream, looked, picked out the right rocks, and sent them off to him.
Four or five months later I get an email from him. He said, 'My son's better, he's doing terrific.' And he said, 'But you need to know something. We've sold over a thousand rocks at ten dollars a piece, as gratitude rocks, and we've raised all this money for charity. Thank you very much.'
And so it's very important to be in an 'attitude of gratitude, as I call it.'
Powerful Processes: Visualize
Another thing that I would suggest that you do right now to turn your life around and this is so huge that I can't find the words to describe just how powerful this can be for you.
I took the visualization process from the Apollo program, and instituted it during the 1 980s and 90s into the Olympic program. And it was called Visual Motor Rehearsal.
then you materialize.
And the interesting thing about the mind is, we took Olympic athletes and then hooked them up to sophisticated biofeedback equipment, and had them run their event only in their mind. incredibly, the same muscles fired in the same sequence when they were running the race in their mind, as when they were running it on the track.
How could this be? Because the mind can't distinguish whether you're really doing it or whether it's just a practice. I think if you've been there in the mind, you'll go there in the body.
When you're visualizing, when you've got that picture playing out in your mind, always and only dwell upon the end result Here's an example. Look at the back of your hands right now. Really look at the back of your hands. The color of your skin, the freckles, the blood vessels, the rings, the fingernails, the fake fingernails. Take in all those details, right before you close your eyes and then see those hands, your fingers, wrapping around the steering wheel of your brand new car. This is such a holographic experience, so real so real in this moment, that you don't even feel like you need the car, because it feels like you already have it. It's the feeling that really creates the attraction, not just the picture or the thought.
And I think for a lot of people, they think, 'Well, if I think positive thoughts or if I visualize having what I want, that will be enough.' But if you're doing that and still not feeling abundant or feeling, you know, loving or joyful, then it doesn't from my mind really create the power of the attraction. This is where The Secret actually moves into action. You put yourself in the feeling place of really being in that car. not, 'Oh, I wish I could get that car' or 'Some day I'll have that car', because that's a very definite feeling associated with that. It's not in the now, it's not, you know, it's in the future. If you stay in that feeling, it will always be in the future. Feel the joy, feel the happiness. No matter how silly it seems in that dark and quiet room, and you're going, 'Woo hoo!' Do it!
A lot of people will say, you know, 'Come on, do I have to do that?'
How bad do you want change?
Now that feeling and that inner seeing will begin to be an open doorway through which the power of the universe will begin to express.
"What this power is,
I cannot say.
All I know is
that it exists."
- Alexander Graham Bell
Our job is not to figure out the how. The how will show up out of the commitment and the belief in the what. The hows are the domain of the universe.
It always knows the shortest, quickest, fastest, most harmonious way between you and your dream. If you turn it over to the universe, you will be surprised and dazzled by what is delivered to you. This is where magic and miracles happen.
Well I would say you want to do this virtually daily, but my disclaimer is, this should never be a chore.
What's really bottom line important here, to the whole Secret, is feeling good. You want to feel exhilarated by this whole process. You want to be high, happy, in tune, as much as possible.
The only difference between people who live in this way, who live in the magic of life, and those who don't, is that the people who live in the magic of life have habituated ways of being. They've made a habit of using the law of attraction, and magic happens with them wherever they go. Because they remember to use it. They use it all the time, not just as a one time event.
People hold that for a while, and they're really a champion at it. And they say, 'You know what, I'm fired up. I saw this program and I'm gonna change my life'. And yet you know, results aren't showing, results aren't showing, and beneath the surface it's just about ready to break through. And someone will look at the surface results, and go, 'This stuff doesn't work.' You know what the universe says? 'Your wish is my command.' And it goes down.
Knowing the law of attraction, I wanted to really put it to use and to see if it was, you know, what would happen. And in 1995 I started to create something called a Vision Board, where I take something that I want to achieve or something that I want to attract, like a car or a watch or the soul mate of my dreams.
And I put a picture of what I wanted up on this board called the Vision Board. And every day I would sit in my office and I would look up at this board and I would start to visualize. I would really get into the state of having already acquired it.
I was getting ready to move, as we put all the furniture, all the boxes, put into storage, and I made three different moves over a period of five years. And then I ended up in California and bought this house, renovated it for a year, and then had all the stuff brought from my former home five years earlier.
One morning, about seven thirty in the morning, my son comes into my office, and one of the boxes that was sealed for five years was right at the door step. And my son came in and he was sitting on the box banging away at the box, and I said, 'Sweetheart will you please stop, I'm doing some work here.'
'What's in the boxes Daddy?'
And I said, 'Well honey, those are my Vision Boards.''What's a Vision Board?' I said, 'Well, it's where I put all my goals up. I cut them out and I put all my goals up as something that I want to achieve in my life.'
And of course at five and a half years old he didn't understand, and so I said, 'Sweetie let me just show you, that'll be the easiest way to do it.' And so I cut the box open, and when I pulled up the Vision Boards there was a picture on there of a home that I was visualizing five years earlier.
And what was shocking to me was we were living in that house. Not a house like it. I had bought my dream home, renovated it, and didn't even know it. But I looked at that house and I started to cry, because I was just blown away.
'Why you crying?'
'Honey, I finally understand how the law of attraction works.' I finally understand the power of visualization. I finally understand everything that I've read, everything that I've worked with. My whole life, the way I've built companies. It worked for my home as well, and I bought our dream home and didn't even know it.'
"Imagination is everything.
It is the preview
of coming attractions."
- Albert Einstein
Decide what you want, believe you can have it, believe you deserve it, and believe it's possible for you. And then close your eyes every day for several minutes and visualize having what you already want, and feeling the feelings of already having it. Come out of that and focus on what you're grateful for already. And really be, enjoy it, okay. And then go into your day and release it to the universe, and trust that the universe will figure out how to manifest.
