Are you familiar with the book and movie “The Secret?” Did you try or are you trying the advice included in it? Are you having results? If your answer is no, it doesn’t mean that what you read in the book or saw in the movie doesn’t work. So, that the recommendations can work for you, it’s important that you know what is the secret behind “The Secret”.
Who does “The Secret” actually work for?:
Why is it that some people manifest more than others? It seems that they set their intention, verbalize what they desire and boom! it appears in their life…..It seems as if they cannot fail; they always seem to get what they want. It seems that The Secret is something that comes naturally to them. So what is the difference between someone who manifests easily to one that seems to struggle to make their desires come true?
The difference is that the ones that seem to manifest effortlessly have clear intentions and do not allow obstacles to deter them. They also put attention on their intention. In the book “The Passion Test”, there is a simple formula to manifesting your deepest desires. That Formula is “Intention, Attention, No tension”. This is really the secret behind “The Secret”.
Intention: Consciously stating what it is you choose to experience in your life is the first step to manifesting it. This is about being clear about the ‘what’.
Attention: Your life becomes like that on which you put your attention. Give attention to that which you choose to experience in your life, and it will begin to show up.
No Tension: An openness to what is appearing in the moment allows life to flow. Take ‘easy action’ (not a trying and striving and forcing something to happen), then ‘let go’ and let Life take care of the ‘how’.
One of the things that I learned from one of my mentors, Janet Attwood; the author of “The Passion Test”, is that once you set your intention, strike like lightning in all directions and don’t hold tightly as to how things will manifest in your life, just remain open and let the ‘how’ take care of itself. To me this means taking action on ideas even when they seem silly or insignificant.
These people who seem to effortless succeed at everything are action takers. They don’t let negative beliefs or toxic mental chatter get in their way. In a study, it was found that the top 100 most successful people in the world all had one thing in common. They were all living their top five passions. For these people, I suspect that simple visualization and clarity is enough to make them unstoppable.

Let’s play a game and see if the secret behind “The Secrets” works for you:
Have you ever heard of the exercise of intending to bring home a blue feather? Well, you just go about your day intending that you will attract a blue feather into your life within 48 hours to a week. So, that’s exactly what I will ask you to do. Why should you do this you ask?
Well not only to have fun and play but most important to activate your reticular activating system. What is that you ask? Well, here is an example of how this works.
Let’s say you get the idea one day that you want a red 1992 Terrano and you have never seen one before. So you go to a dealer and they have just one. Of course you purchase it and you drive out of the lot. While stopped at a light you look around and notice that there is a Terrano in front of you, behind you and on each side of you. They seem to be everywhere! guess what; they were always there. You just never notice them because it was not in your awareness. Once the idea entered you mind, your reticular activator kicked in and decided that it was important to you and allowed it to be noticed.
Each day, you’re exposed to so many stimuli that you can’t pay attention to all of it. Your RAS decides what’s important enough to bring to your attention and what can be allowed to slide by unnoticed. That is why it is so important to know your top five passions because the RAS will decide that they are important for you and you will begin to see them appear in your life.
The feather exercise is the same idea. If you’re focused on finding a blue feather, you’re sure to notice one when one actually comes into your life.
You can create the life of your dreams…… There’s nothing magical about it. Just put attention on your intentions.
With a little practice, you will work magic in your life. And your well-deserved dreams will be at your fingertips.
