{Movie Review} The Secret

Culture & Society, Miscellaneous Musings, Re-framing Your Thinking


I first heard of the Law of Attraction more than 6 months ago. I had just graduated college and found myself trying to recover after being let go from my first full-time position.


Now what?


When my coach first explained the Law of Attraction to me, I wasn’t willing to buy into it.


I’ll be honest; watching the movie for the first time made me angry. At least initially.




So I you’re saying attracted bullying, depression, car accidents and multiple surgeries into my life?  Sure, I’m willing to buy that. How much again?


And yes, creating the life you want for yourself sounds pretty good to me.


I don’t have a classic story success story.


But I do know that this film, along with The Science of Getting Rich made question my thought process.


I am a natural skeptic. Sometimes I go back to that place of negativity. But changing my thought process sounded like a really good idea when I realized that I had one of two choices.


I could:


a)    Think: “Oh my god, this is so not fair. Why me?” and sound like a spoiled brat and attract everything that I didn’t want into my life.




b)   Think: “I don’t know why I chose this option, but I know that this experience will allow me to grow and I’ll learn to love myself more in the long run. I’m grateful for this experience because of this. It will help me grow.


I don’t know about you, but the second option sounds (and feels) a lot better to me.


This documentary was the catalyst for that change.


The experts in the documentary share their experiences with the Law of Attraction and offer us viewers their biggest tips so that WE can apply the Law of Attraction to OUR lives.


I don’t know about you, but flipping through the catalog of possibilities that the universe has to offer and placing my order sounds pretty fun, even for someone who’s (figuratively) allergic to malls.


For those of you interested, you can check out the documentary on YouTube, Hulu and Netflix!
