Reflections on "The Secret", the Law of Attraction and the Mainstream

by Chyrene Pendleton

It's so interesting to me to read and hear the recent feedback about the film, "The Secret" from various sources, especially since it was discussed on The Oprah Winfrey Show in February, 2007. This topic sparks criticism and self-righteousness in some, anger and debate in others as well as excitement, anticipation and joy in many. The good news is that it's all good.

What's most important is that people are actually talking about "The Secret" and having serious and fun discussions about the Law of Attraction everywhere, including in spiritual groups, chat rooms and forums on the Internet. The practice of it is creating a major movement, perfect for this time in history. This movement will certainly help raise the consciousness of humanity and assist in accelerating all through the global transformation and shift we are currently going through.

Some argue that the Law of Attraction has always existed and that this concept isn't anything new. That is so true. What is new is how the recent re-introduction of this knowledge is activating people to do something about it now, whether it is to argue about these principals or actually decide to consciously use the Law of Attraction to create the exact life and world they want to live in.

The reason it's called, "The Secret" is because the deliberate practice of the Law of Attraction has been away from the public eye for thousands of years. It has not been taught in public schools and certainly not in Christian churches (although this may soon change), even though the principals are in the Bible.

Those who actively practice the Law of Attraction in their lives, are not surprised at all about this information but are pleased that it is "out in the open", so to speak. I have written several articles over the years about my personal experiences using this universal law and I'm very happy to know this topic is now mainstream. I also wrote a movie review of "The Secret" which can be found in the September, 2006 issue of The Isle Of Light newsletter .

It's important to remember that the Law of Attraction works throughout the universe. It is a spiritual as well as a scientific law. For those new to the Law of Attraction, it basically means,

"like attracts like"

"you reap what you sow"

"you get what you focus on, whether negative or positive"

The Law of Attraction is not a belief system--it works in our lives whether we believe in it or not. Some questions one might reflect on are:

What kind of world would we have if people everywhere were consciously creating,or manifesting exactly the kind of life they want to live and everything in it?

Would our political, economic, religious and educational systems change? If so, how?

What would change in your life?

I applaud the producer of "The Secret", Rhonda Byrne and all of the cast who were obviously inspired to create this film at this crucial time in history. I applaud Oprah for presenting this ancient knowledge to millions of viewers in 2007. She too was inspired when she agreed to do this. "The Secret" can be found and viewed by visiting:

Also, I applaud all who have been teaching the Law of Attraction all along, even decades before "The Secret" came out, such as Esther and Jerry Hicks with the Abraham teachings, Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer with Orin and DaBen, Jane Roberts with Seth, and the many, many Divinely inspired authors, teachers and speakers who preceded them for thousands of years. Now is the time to start actively using the Law of Attraction principles, if you're not doing so already!

Two things...

1. If I had to sum the entire thing up, it's that the Law of Attraction
is all about alignment. You've got to do the "work" if you want to
bring something info your life.

This is where I think people mess up, which gives the entire thing the
"MLM/Amway" kind of vibe. You can't just sit around eating junk food
and watching reruns and expect to live on the beach...regardless of what
the infomercials say.

People like Joe Vitale are out working. Bob Proctor is out working.
James Ray is out working.

2. I found a FREE book (yes, FREE) that helped me figure out all of
this. has it and it's well worth the read.

And like I said, it's FREE. So you can't argue that the guy is trying
to take advantage of people looking for a "magic pill" or whatever else
I've been hearing over the last 2-3 weeks since this thing hit Oprah.

Thank you Robbert for sharing your thoughts and the link.

There are many other free books available on this topic of the Law of Attraction--I was thinking about making a list in a blog.

On of my all-time favorites from the early 1900s, "As A Man Thinketh" by James Allen , which I have a hard copy of. The free version can be found at

Great info.

I watched the Secret DVD a few months ago and got another book on Law of Attraction,
but it didn't really start happening for me until I wrote down my intentions. I found that to be
VERY powerful. is a book I just got, which makes
planning out your Law of Attraction goals easy. Just fill in the blanks and you've got a road
map to follow. Has been working well so far.
