4. When you complain, the law of attraction will bring more situations to complain about
The law of attraction clearly states that “like attracts like”. So when you complain about your current circumstances the universe must present you with more situations to complain about. So the next time you are feeling upset or complaining about something, keep in mind that you attract what you continually think or talk about. You are blocking all the good things by being in a negative frequency. Change your thoughts and positive events in your life will follow.
5. It takes many negative thoughts and persistent negative thinking to bring negative events into your life.
We’ve all heard the saying “what you allow is what will continue”. The same can be applied to negative thoughts. When you allow negative thoughts into your life every day, the law of attraction will continue to bring negative events into your life. We’ve all had those days when one thing after the other goes wrong. Whether you are aware of it or not, this chain reaction began with just one negative thought. So alter your persistent negative thoughts with positive ones to get the things you desire in your life. One of the greatest lessons from “The Secret” is to stop your chain of negative thoughts and replace them with positive ones to achieve the desired outcome.
6. Learning to quiet your mind through meditation or yoga
We’ve all heard how important it is to still our minds. It is crucial, as humans, to learn how to calm our minds and allow the negativity to flow out of our system. Learning to quiet your mind through meditation or yoga is an important skill to master. This gives an incredible power to gain control over your thoughts.
The Secret also suggested listing out some “secret shifters”. Secret shifters are things that can change your feelings in an instant. These can involve beautiful memories, future events, funny moments, music, dancing, or anything that will make you feel good instantly. These secret shifters will allow you to be in the moment and help you to attract the things you desire.
The Flaw in “The Secret”
The constant emphasis on thinking positive thoughts may make one think that other emotions are not welcome. One might also think that feeling sad, disappointed, hurt or any negative emotion, are feelings we must ignore. It is important to realize that we can never know what positive emotions feel like without feeling negative emotions. Sometimes it is essential to feel whatever we are feeling without stopping ourselves. We must understand that negative feelings are also feelings that demand to be felt.
