  • What is The Secret and the Law of Attraction?

Today we change our lives!

It’s a big claim but in this blog we will not only explore what is the Secret and the Law of Attraction but I will show you the first three steps to put it into practice and start manifesting everything you desire.

It’s been quite a few years since I read The Secret by Rhonda Byrne and I must say maybe I wasn’t completely ready for the information. I did put it into practice at the time and it worked but somehow I seem to have let it fade and haven’t been consciously using it.

I have just finished re-reading the book and all that is about to change and I want to share The Secret with you so that you too can bring anything and everything into your life that you want.

Let’s make this happen!

What Is It?

The Law of Attraction is the same as the Laws of Gravity. It has always been and will always be.

You don’t question gravity do you? It just is and regardless of whether you understand how it works or you believe it does work, it still works.

The Law of Attraction is based in metaphysics. Everything in the universe is energy which vibrates at a certain frequency. You and I are no exception; we are part of the One Universe and we also vibrate at a certain frequency.

Except we can change and direct our frequency at will to draw into our lives exactly what we want. 

Call it God, the Universe, Eternal Knowledge, it doesn’t matter. Many religions as well as scientists agree that everything that is, has been and will be already exists in the state of energy. 

The fact remains that you act as a magnet for everything that you think and feel and you can tap into this frequency and actively ask for what you want. If you can image it you can bring it into your life simply by changing your frequency.

This may be finances, relationships, health, specific objects, or changes to the greater world around you.

ANYTHING you can image is out there simply waiting for you to align yourself correctly to magnetise it into your physical realm.

This isn’t woo woo, it works and I have first hand experience of manifesting changes and things in my life in the past. You can read my story down below.

But how do I make it happen?

To demonstrate how you put The Secret into action I will focus on bringing increased wealth into your life. If you are a regular to the Rat Race website you probably want to change your fortunes and increase your wealth.

By employing these techniques you can change your life, attract money in abundance to you, and it can start today.

It is a simple 3 step process.

Step 1 - Ask

You need to get clear about what it is you want and then put that out to the Universe. What do you really want? It is as easy for the Universe to give you $1 million dollars as it is $100 so don’t sell yourself short.

Some people find they need to try something small just to get it into their psyche that The Secret really works. If this is you then they suggest you ask for a specifically recognisable object.

Say a feather with distinct patterns or perhaps a distinctive hat, the object needs to be very detailed so you will know without a doubt when it shows up in your life that you did indeed manifest it’s existence.

As with everything to do with the Law of Attraction what you ask for must be in the positive tense, requested as if you have already received it and back it with feeling.

If, like me, you are going straight for an increase in wealth and business success you might say:

  • “I am so happy now that my affiliate marketing business is making $10,000 per month”. OK that’s what I am saying but you are welcome to use it.

You shouldn’t put a timeline or deadline on your request. The Universe will work it’s magic and may provide sooner than you guess the request can be fulfilled. Only put a timeline if you don’t want your request any sooner than a specific date.

The amount of faith and knowing as well as feeling that you have in this process will dictate how long you will have to wait.

Step 2 - Believe

You can think about your request as having ordered through the Catalogue of the Universe. When you order a product you don’t second guess that it will arrive or keep ordering it just in case the first one doesn’t turn up!

You know you have placed your order and that what you want will be delivered. This is exactly the same.

You don’t need to keep asking or ordering. You need to have faith and believe that your request has been ordered and it is only a matter of time before it will come to you.

This is why it is sometimes best to try first with a small object, to prove to yourself that the Law of Attraction does work. Once you have seen that you can manifest something, it's easier to believe that you can manifest anything! 

Step 3 - Receive

You need to open your heart and your mind to receive.

You do need to 100% commit yourself to the process, to make yourself open to receiving and not put any negative blocks on the process.

Negative blocks can come in the form of negative thoughts eg. This won’t/can’t work, nothing good ever happens to me so this won’t either.

Or negative actions. So while you do not need to pre-empt how the Universe will provide, you do still need to be open to receiving suggestions from the Universe.

So if you have asked for your affiliate marketing business to provide you with $10,000 each month you shouldn’t then go and close down all your websites.

Your break may come in the form of a new affiliate program that is just taking off or a sudden jump in traffic or sales from a post long forgotten.

Don’t stifle the Universe’s attempts to help you get what you want. Leave your self open to your intuition, new ideas that present themselves or new opportunities that just might make your request come true.

Know for a fact and hold in your heart that you are worthy and that the Universe has been providing for you and will continue to do so.

Why is my life so hard now then?

So at this point you might be thinking well that means that all the bad things that have happened to me so far in my life or the current situation I find myself in which I did not want I have brought to me; and I know I didn’t do that!

We yes actually you did.

As I said earlier the Law of Attraction is working whether you consciously use it or not.

As humans we all have a tendency to think negative thoughts, put up road blocks or to think about what we don’t want.

The Universe doesn’t recognise DON’T. When you say things like I don’t want any more bills, the universe only recognises “I want more bills” and lo and behold that’s what you get.

When you are subconsciously heightening your frequency by adding strong feelings of anger, sadness or fear to your thoughts you are increasing the magnetism and drawing what you don’t want even faster and in greater abundance into your existence.

Now that you know the Law of Attraction you can consciously change your frequency and reduce or eliminate the unwanted thoughts and feelings from your life. This will open you up through gratitude and knowing for even greater abundance to manifest into your life.

You must be grateful for what you already have and positive about your future.

Be on guard for negative thoughts and emotions. Every now and then through out the day ask yourself “What am I thinking or feeling?”

Often negative thoughts creep in when we are least expecting them. If you find yourself think or feeling anything negative make a conscious effort to think of something happy or that you are grateful for.

How do I know it works?
My back story

It was some 4 years ago when I read the book. I wanted to have horses again but it seemed a mammoth task to make this happen. Simply impossible or so I thought.

girl and horse eye

We had purchased some land and built a cat & dog boarding kennel which we were running. It was a 7 day a week business and I was also working full-time. There just weren’t enough hours in the day for me to start having and riding horses again.

The block of land wasn’t fully fenced, had no stables or yards and one of the paddocks didn’t even have water. Not suitable at all for running horses. On top of that I had no money left to do those sort of expensive improvements to the property.

The property just wasn’t suitable to have horses there.

Everything was pointing to being just too hard and expensive for me to realise my dream of having horses once again. Which is precisely why I hadn’t been able to do anything about it for many years.

It never seemed the right time, the planets never seemed to align to make it possible, and while I still wanted the dream I was “realistic” enough to know it just wouldn’t happen.


Then I stumbled upon The Secret while browsing through a book shop. I had never heard of the Law of Attraction and I wasn’t particularly even looking to buy a book I was just passing time but there it was and buy it I did.

The more I read the more excited I got about the concept and I put it into practice immediately to bring my dream of having my own horse again, even though I did not know how this could possibly come to pass.

Within 2 months not only did I have my own horse after 25 years without one, but my life had been completely changed for the better to make way for this dream to happen.

My partner and I decided that we would sell or rent out the business and move to free up some time. I advertised the property on social media and within 24 hours we had a tenant willing to move in and pay the rent we were asking.

That meant we would be homeless within 4 weeks as we had to move out!

As I said we had very little money but we spoke to the local real estate agent about our dilemma and she started putting properties together for us to either rent or buy.

Again the Universe had us covered, a cheap house, the usual worst house in the best street scenario became available and it was cheap enough for us to get a second loan and purchase it.

BUT it was on a small block of land right in the middle of town with no land for the horse I was asking the Universe to provide!

I didn’t want to second guess the law of attraction but I must admit that at this point I was starting to wonder if things were going completely wrong and I would indeed be worse off that when I started putting The Secret into action.

To say I was worried would be an understatement.

I had completely up ended my families life, reduced our income and increased our debt for what seemed absolutely no progress towards my dream.

But as you will learn below the Universe had my back and things were indeed starting to fall into place, not fall apart as I was starting to fear.

I had not said anything to anyone about my plans to have a horse. Completely out of the blue an acquaintance who I knew only slightly rang me and offered me a horse!

Her daughter had bought the horse but had lost interest and it was sitting out at their farm doing nothing.

I explained to her that we were moving off our property and would have no room for a horse. She suggested there were stables down at the local race course which was only about a 3 minute drive from our new property.

Arrangements were made, we had to spend very little money to get the stables up to scratch and some 4 weeks later we had moved into our new residence and my new horse had moved into his new stable.

From the day I started reading The Secret to the day my new horse came home was 8 weeks.

  1. I agree you can pretty much achieve what you tune your mind to. Now I know what I have got to do; Ask, Believe and receive in that order. I am going to do away with negative thoughts and focus on positives. Optimism is key, now I know.

    Thanks for the good information. This is very helpful.

    1. That’s for sure Victor everyone can achieve and why not help the Universe help you by vibrating at the correct frequency. My very best wishes to you in everything you do – lets keep that optimism flowing.

  2. Thank you for sharing The Secret and the Law of Attraction. You are so right about it. It doesn’t matter whether we believe or accept it, it has come to stay and it is the fact that everything vibrate at a certain frequency in the earth.

    The key to escaping the rat race is simply by asking, believing and then we surely will receive. It is by faith and faith cannot work without putting in efforts.


    1. So true Barry and I think this is one element of the Law of Attraction that people miss – you do need to take action. It’s like asking and believing that you will win the lotto and then not buying a ticket!

      So many people are actively working against the Law, subconsciously of course, but the effects are still the same. We need to take charge and make the change in ourselves then be open to the opportunities that come our way. 

      May much abundance come to you.
