When you sit back and really pay attention to the negativity in the world it really blows your mind at how much there actually is! I mean have you ever watched the evening news geesh! Maybe you might have one story out of the whole freaking hour that is positive and heart warming, the rest is, murder, fire, theft, scandal, and everything else bad under the sun. I used to watch the news everyday when I came home from work and sometimes even before I went to work, but I can hardly bring myself to watch it at all anymore!!

People come into my office everyday saying things like "its so bad out there, the economy is failing, everyone is loosing jobs ect". I just nod my head and agree, when really I want to say "STOP!!!" What is wrong with you people, ya its not the greatest right now but what kind of attitude do you have! By going on and on and on about it, is not going to make it any better!! Its like spreading disease. If you stop talking about how bad it is and say "Things are getting better or Things are going to be great, wonderful awesome", whatever adjective you want to use, as long as it has a positive impact. You never know what one little thing you say might do to totally change someone or somethings course of action.

If you come across someone who is having a bad day, week, month, or life, it might only take for you to say to them, that things are going to be OK. And that just might change their way of thinking. More then likely if they are really down and out its going to take a whole lot more then one lil comment, but its the idea and the possibility that matters. Its just as easy to spread happy thoughts like a disease as it is bad thoughts.

One lady said to me, "everyday I go to work and worry if I am going to have a job".... Ugh! well that's the first step for sure to end up losing the job. She said "do you feel the same way or are you secure at your company". I said "well you never know whats going to happen from one day to the next but I don't worry about it, I feel secure and I am thankful and happy everyday for my job and what I have."

Its so easy to let doubt and fear slip in. Its bound to happen, especially with all the negative surroundings. It helps to just keep reminding yourself of your happy thoughts and how great of a life you have. (and your life is great no matter what is going on damn it!) There are lots of lil things you can do as reminders or to just lift your spirits if you are feeling you are in a negative vibe. I like to use music and if I ever figure out how to post music on here I will post a happy play list LOL.

Remember One Positive thought is a millions times stronger then a negative thought!!

Vision Boards

In The Secret they talk about having a vision board or having several. One of the teachers John Assarf goes in depth about it. The idea is to have something physical to look at and remind ourselves of what we want, what our goals are. He explains that you just cut out pictures of things you want put them on a board somewhere you will see it and it will help to aid you in bringing those things into your life. By posting what you want you are sending out the message 'this is what I want". When you look at it and have these happy thoughts you are sending out energy of getting what you want. An important point to make is: you should always see yourself in yours goals, so if it helps put a picture of your smiling face right smack dab in the middle of the rest of the pictures, then do it! Its pointless to visualize a dream vacation to Europe endless you can actually see yourself there!
Long before I knew anything about The Secret and I was living at my mothers after my separation from my husband. Me and the kids shared a room and bed in my mothers tiny house, not the greatest time of my life but it could have been worse. All I wanted was my own place again, privacy, my own stuff ect. ect. We used to get all these catalogs in the mail with home decorations, furniture things of the like. And I would ponder over how I would actually decorate my own place when I got it. Then one day; more then likely just out of pure boredom I decided to create a note book of everything I wanted for my new place. I had a section for each room and wrote down details of the colors and themes I would like to use. I also started cutting out pictures from the catalogs we got. I had the dishes, silverware, linen, couches, lamps, paintings, everything you could imagine for a new home picked out. I had that book filled to the max!!! Nothing was to good or expensive or out of reach I could have anything I wanted all I had to do is cut it out and put it in the book!! i loved looking through it and showing it off even. And yes I got a few laughs and keep dreaming. But I didn't care I kept it in my mind that when I did get a place i would have all that stuff and I would have the best house out of anyone I knew. Well I packed the book away at some point. I eventually did get my own place, a cute lil place if I do say. I came across the notebook, looked through it and to my utter surprise I had A LOT of the stuff that was cut out and pasted in it!! Did I get everything? No, I didn't end up with all of it (like the 100,000$ crystal chandelier LOL) BUT I did get and still have and I am still getting a lot of the stuff I put in my book.
Your vision board or book or whatever you want to put it on, doesn't have to be some elaborate crafty masterpiece. If you choose to share it wonderful, but you don't have to do that either. If you have been wanting a new car, maybe one in particular, find a picture of it, post it up somewhere you will look at it often and every time you look at it, imagine yourself driving away in it! See yourself signing the papers, hell close your eyes and pretend to drive it, motor sounds and all. The more real you make it for yourself and the more you believe it, the easier and faster it will come!
At Christmas time I encourage my kids to go through all the sale ads and circle things they want, I am sure most f us did this as kids. Its the same concept seeing what we want and doing something about getting it. In The Secret they give an example of a young boy cutting out a picture of a new bike he wants and making a cute lil page and pinning it up in his room, and how he ends up with the bike. My point is that this is so easy a kid can do it! LOL and its actually a good way to help introduce The Secret into our kids lives. After all they do learn from example.

The magic and power to manifest our dreams is with in us all, its our gift to use and use and use, it is indispensable, you can never run out so take it and run with it baby!!!!

One of the general rules of the Law of attraction is Gratitude, being thankful for what you have. And really if you think about it its probably one of the easiest rules to follow. Everyone has things to be thankful for, even if its just waking up in the morning! Being thankful helps us to bring positive vibrations into our lives. Everyday you should find things to be thankful for and it can be from big things like your family's health to minor things like catching that egg before it rolled off the counter into the floor creating a mess! One of the teachers of The Secret talks a lot about how he carried around a gratitude stone in his pocket and every night when he would empty out his pockets and he would hold the stone and go over things he was thankful for in his life. Another thing you can do is keep a journal, and write in in daily , weekly , hourly whatever of good things that happen and you are thankful for. It really shouldn't be that hard to come up with several things and your thank yous soon should be flowing out of you at light speed. As matter of fact I try to apply this to everything now, for example this morning I was looking all over for my bra I kept saying, I need my bra I need to find my bra, and with in minutes I found it in the most random place(the 9yr old put the laundry away that's what I get) and I immediately said thank you so much. And it was just second nature to say it. I know you are thinking bra give me a break I will be thankful if I found a million dollars! But that's just the thing is life is not and don't have to always be about the big things, little things count too, and when we recognize that we can get to the big things a whole lot easier!! Here's a simple step to being thankful, take a piece of paper and just start writing down random things that make you happy or that you enjoy, little things that make life special......

The smell of a new baby
Morning cup of joe
warm blanket to cuddle
my child saying I love you
the cat purring
finding my bra (lol)
I woke up on time and not rushed
hot shower
listening to your kids laugh in their sleep
your fav song on the radio
catching all the green lights on your way to work
chocolate milk
ice water
going to the movies
smell of rain

The list can go on and on and on and on

When you are grateful for things that you enjoy in your life, the more of it you will have, the more you have in your life the more you will enjoy it, the more you enjoy your life the more things you will have to be thankful for, I know vicious circle isn't it :) LOL And when its all said and done you can look back say , what a ride THANK YOU!!!!

Totally Unique thoughts Introduction

One of the teachers from The Secret is Mike Dooley he has a company called TUT Enterprises Inc. Which stood originally for totally Unique t shirts. He has a book that I recently received called Totally Unique thoughts, Reminders of life's Everyday magic! So occasionally if I have writers block or just come across something from the book I would like to share I will post it here. If you ever want to look back on one just look for it under the 'totally unique thoughts ' label.

Mike Dooley also has a web site were you can sign up for daily emails called notes from the universe( i have the book also). I get notes from the universe everyday and LOVE them. Sometimes the days message hits the nail on the head so much I think wow are they in my head or what! Anyhow I will post the Note from the universe from time to time as well which can also be found under the labels.

Here is Mike Dooleys Web site :

And heres the first Thought:
The magic in life is far to great, To spend your time waitng on fate. in just a blink Your dreams are born, And wehn you act with faith They begin to take form.


I mentioned before that we make the decisions in our life for everything. Choose what comes into our lives and choose something as small as how our day goes. Its true!
Here is a lil story i received as an email I thought I would share, I have posted it on other places and people seem to like it.

John is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say. When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, 'If I were any better, I would be twins!' He was a natural motivator. If an employee was having a bad day, John was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation. Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up and asked him, 'I don't get it! You can't be a positive person all of the time How do you do it?' He replied, 'Each morning I wake up and say to myself, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or ... you can choose to be in a bad mood I choose to be in a good mood.' Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or...I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it. Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or... I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life. 'Yeah, right, it's not that easy,' I protested. 'Yes, it is,' he said. 'Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It's your choice how you live your life.' I reflected on what he said. Soon hereafter, I left the Tower Industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it. Several years later, I heard that he was involved in a serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications tower. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, he was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back I saw him about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied, 'If I were any better, I'd be twins..Wanna see my scars?' I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place. 'The first thing that went through my mind was the well-being of my soon-to-be born daughter,' he replied. 'Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or...I could choose to die. I chose to live.' 'Weren't you scared? Did you lose consciousness?' I asked He continued, '..the paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the20faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read 'he's a dead man'. I knew I needed to take action.' 'What did you do?' I asked. 'Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me,' said John. 'She asked if I was allergic to anything 'Yes, I replied.' The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, 'Gravity'' Over their laughter, I told them, 'I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.' He lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude... I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully. Attitude, after all, is everything .

In the beginning

So after I first learned about the law of attraction I thought how can I use this and make it work for me, there was one lil' piece from one of the teachers that stuck out and I thought what the heck I will try it. The teacher said something to the effect of he was always so worried about the bills and past due notices in the mail he would receive and hated going to the mailbox everyday. So he decided to tell himself that he was going to get a check and after focusing on getting checks that is what he now gets the most of, yes still bills come but not as often as before and he now has the checks to pay them. Well I am sure there is more to the whole story on how he got the checks I am not sure. But I thought hmm well it couldn't hurt so for a week i thought over and over "I am going to get a check on the mail". And every time any lil doubt crept in I re enforced the check idea. Well I actually ended up getting a check in the mail, don't get to excited peeps it was only for 12 bucks that I had over paid on some account. But heck money is money right! So I thought well there might really be something to this whole Secret thing and I re watched the dvd and really focused on the hows and whys.

There are alot of things that have stuck out from the teachings that I use to remind myself when things are looking gloomy.

But first I want to focus on what the law of attraction actually is .
From Wikipedia:
The phrase Law of Attraction, although used widely by New Thought writers, has a variety of definitions. Turn-of-the-century references conceptualized the law of attraction as relating to physical structure and to how matter develops. A more modern consensus among New Thought thinkers is that the Law of Attraction says people's thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate the reality of their lives, whether or not they're aware of it. Essentially "if you really want something and truly believe it's possible, you'll get it", but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don't want means you'll probably get that too.

Many modern proponents say that the Law of Attraction has roots in Quantum Physics.According to proponents of this law, thoughts have an energy which attracts whatever it is the person is thinking of.In order to control this energy to one's advantage, proponents state that people must practice four things:
1. Know what you want.
2. Ask the universe for it.
3. Feel and behave as if the object of your desire is on its way.
4. Be open to receiving it.

I have watched the dvd several times and have read things on the Internet and in a few books i recently bought. I learn something new about it every time.

The law attraction brings everything to our life, so even the bad comes. Everyone would like to keep the bad out, me included. And from what I have learned and experienced if you focus on what you dont want the universe is going to respond by giving it to you, I know this seems a bit unfair, but the universe does not recognize " I dont want to be late for work" it recognizes "late for work" and so it will be an you sure enough will be late for work. I never really realized how many negative thoughts go through ones mind in a day till I paid attention to how I was thinking about things.

A positive thought is 1000 times stronger and more effective then one negative thought. So when I do catch myself saying " I am so tired" or " I feel like crap" I stop yell at my inner self (lol) and think over and over " I feel great" or " I have so much energy". Then the universe will kick in and set those thoughts into motion.

One of my favorite quotes is from Mike Dooley... "Thoughts Become Things... Choose the Good Ones"

At first when you are re training your brain (and thats basically what you need to do) to think only in a positive way , it might seem exhausting, but it does get easier if you stick to it, and I promise you WILL notice a big difference. Start off with little things like being on time for something or waking up energized and happy. Have you ever heard the term "fake it till you make it"?

There are lots of small things that you can do to bring a positive change into your life, little things add up and before you know it you will see how much better it can be. Everyday and every moment you decide how your day will be. Get up in the morning and decide "this is going to be a great day, everything and anything will go perfect in every way" and smile and believe it. believing it and feeling it is so important combined with positive thinking and you are unstop able! Last xmas I made my Ya -Ya a positive affirmation jar, there are lots of lil papers folded in it that say nice things, positive thoughts, silly sayings just lil nice things in general, they pick one everyday and read it and if that is the only thing they can make themselves focus on that is positive well then its better then nothing. One of my Ya ya's loved hers so much that i often get request for new things for her to add to her jar for the month and I am more then happy to oblige! if that doesnt sound like your cup of tea and you would rather just tape notes all over the place with happy thought, well what ever works!

One of the teachers from The Secret said that the Universe is like a genie in a bottle "ask and you shall receive". Once you can grasp that idea and really begin to put it to use with just the small everyday things we can really move on to bigger and better things. like those checks in the mail woohoo!!

I hope this is not something that people will get all pumped up on and think yes I am going to do I am ging to change my life and be more positive and then a week, month or year down the road just let it tapper off and forget about it. If you really make an effort to be positive in all aspects of your life it will only get easier and better with time, we are the creators of our own destiny's why not make them the best and most wonderful that they can be, don't settle for anything less then the best we only have one life its best to make it the most awesome ride that we can create!!


My name is Kelly, I am starting this blog to share my learning experiences about "The Secret". What is the Secret you ask.... well it is based on the Law of Attraction. Here is and Excerpt from the website :

The Secret reveals the most powerful law in the universe. The knowledge of this law has run like a golden thread through the lives and the teachings of all the prophets, seers, sages and saviors in the world's history, and through the lives of all truly great men and women. All that they have ever accomplished or attained has been done in full accordance with this most powerful law. Without exception, every human being has the ability to transform any weakness or suffering into strength, power, perfect peace, health, and abundance. Rhonda Byrne's discovery of The Secret began with a glimpse of the truth through a 100 year old book. She went back through centuries, tracing and uncovering a common truth that lay at the core of the most powerful philosophies, teachings and religions in the world. What Rhonda discovered is now captured in The Secret, a film that has been viewed by millions around the world. The Secret has also been released as an audio-book and printed book with more than six million copies in print. The Secret explains with simplicity the law that is governing all lives, and offers the knowledge of how to create - intentionally and effortlessly - a joyful life. This is the secret to everything - the secret to unlimited happiness, love, health and prosperity.This is the secret to life.

The Secret teaches us that we create our lives, with every thought every minute of every day. Living The Secret offers tools and ideas to help you live The Secret and create the life of your dreams.

Here is the link to the website :

By no means am I here to advertise or sell anything so I hope that this doesn't come across as an infomercial. I just want to give credit were credit is due.

I came across The Secret one sleepless night, when I first started to watch I thought it was going to be a documentary about Free Mason, ancient mysteries, or something else to do with history, which I would enjoy and stayed tune. Then the teachers started talking about this secret and I thought oh great an info freaking mercial, what do they want to sell me. But thankfully I stayed tune and quickly became very interested in what they were talking about: The law of attraction.

I wont go into detail about what I learned that night, but I will say it was very eye opening and I have over the past year put a lot of the ideas to use and have been very successful. As matter of fact I have never been in a better place in my life or happier. Just ask anyone who knows me I talk about it all the time.

Learning and Living The Secret is simple on one hand but hard on the other. It is definitely not something one can achieve over night. That is why I am creating this blog, I am still learning and want to share, the what, wheres, hows, ect. I will share my stories of what has worked and what hasn't, and share other,s stories. I by no means am an expert this will be a learning together journey. As often as possible I will post things from the actual teachers and experts of The Secret and Law of Attraction.

I will be posting excerpts from books and videos and will try to always post links and info about were they came from, like I said I like to give credit were credit is due. If for some reason I miss something that needs credit please give me a nudge and I will promptly do what I can to fix the situation.

Also a side note I am a first time blogger so bear with me :)

Cheers and here's to a happy, healthy, positive life..... Tallyho
