“The Secret Summary”
The Power To Attract Good
In the world, there are two types of people: those who know what they want and those who know what they do not want.
Imagine the Universe as a great transmission tower. Imagine, too, that your thoughts have a frequency that must be tuned to this transmission tower.
Once tuned, these thoughts are sent directly to the tower – the Universe – and return to you in the form of events.
The law of attraction is evident: you attract what you think – regardless of whether your thoughts are positive or negative.
If you complain and complain constantly, the law of attraction will bring you, even more, a reason to complain.
You have to focus and inaugurate a new way of thinking, which is where what you do not want is left behind, and only what you wish for yourself is desired and imagined.
So, instead of thinking “I do not want to be late today,” one should think “I will arrive on time today” so that, in this way, you will get what you want.
Control Your Thoughts With Your Feelings
Your feelings are the primary drivers of your thoughts.
It is impossible to feel bad and think about good things, and vice versa. Try to ask yourself often “how am I feeling?” To become more aware of your feelings.
If you are feeling good, it is because you are having thoughts that are making you feel good.
Your thoughts determine your frequency and your feelings are what show you how often you are.
When you feel bad and do nothing to change it, it is as if you are asking the Universe to bring you, even more, circumstances that worsen the situation. When you feel good, you are powerfully attracting good things to yourself.
The Importance Of Asking And Believing
The first step to attracting is to ask. Tell the Universe what you want, and it will react to your thoughts.
But there must be no doubt, for you must be sure of what you want. If you are confused, you will emit confusing frequencies and only get confusing results.
Asking should become a habit, since the more you ask, the more you will receive. However, it is not necessary to place an order more than once.
When you are sure of what you want, you have already asked.
Also, it is of the utmost importance to believe that your request will be fulfilled. Imagine buying in a catalog.
After placing your order, it is only natural that you relax and wait for it to arrive, without doubting that it will arrive.
That is how you should do with a request made to the Universe: believe absolutely and unconditionally in the fulfillment of your desire.
Visualize Your Request Being Fulfilled
The moment you ask for something you believe you already have in the invisible, the Universe will do everything to make it visible.
It is imperative that when you ask, you imagine yourself in situations and think of your request not just as a mere desire, but as an accomplishment.
As you take it into account, you will begin to believe that you have received it, and things will move even faster.
Ask once, believe you have received it, and all you have to do to receive it is to feel good. By feeling good, you enter into the frequency of receiving, and all good things will come to you.
Exercise And Be Grateful
Professor Neville Goddard, in 1954, taught a primordial exercise for the law of attraction.
This exercise consists, at the end of each day, before bed, to think about the events of the period.
If any event has not been as positive as you hoped for, repeat it in your mind in a way that pleases you.
Recreating these events in your mind in a way you would like, you will be clearing your frequency from that day and issuing a new one for the day after; recreating, then, new images for its future.
So by getting up every morning and thanking for what you have, you start to feel different about what you have and attract a lot more good things.
Focus on the things you have, be they big or small, and be grateful for it, for it is impossible to add anything to your life if you do not appreciate what you have.
The thoughts you utter when you are not grateful are highly negative and will not give you what you really want.
You must begin, and then the law of attraction will receive these thoughts of gratitude and give you more of them.
Create A Visualization Board
Stop and think of everything you would like to achieve – home, car, family, children -. After doing this, separate a large sheet where you can put pictures of everything you crave for your life.
Cut out pictures that represent your desires, stick on the sheet and put in place where you are at your visual range at some point in your day – when you wake up, when you get home, or when you go to sleep.
Daily, glimpse the panel and imagine as if you already had all this in your life.
Have the feeling of possessing those things now. After receiving, and feeling grateful for receiving, you can replace the images with others.
The Secret And Money
To make money, you need to focus on wealth. It is impossible to attract more money into your life when you can only think that you do not have enough or as much as you would like.
Focus on not having enough money, and you will create circumstances by which you will not have money.
It is necessary to think of the abundance of money, and this will bring it to you.
Try to print the picture of a blank check, fill in your name, amount and put in a place where you can look at it every day.
Have the feeling that you already own that money, imagine spending that money and feel how wonderful it is.
Know that it is yours because you asked for it and then you will receive it.
The only reason a person does not have money is that they are preventing the money from getting to them.
Every negative thought prevents your good from coming to you, and that includes money.
After all, you have to give to receive. Giving is a powerful action to bring more money into your life because when you are giving it, it is saying, “I have a lot.”
You should not be surprised that the richest people on the planet are great philanthropists.
They give enormous sums, and when they give, by the law of attraction, the Universe opens up and returns to them enormous sums-multiplied.
If you’re thinking, “I do not have enough money to give,” that’s the problem. Now you know why you do not have enough money!
When you think you do not have enough to give, start giving. When you demonstrate sharing faith, the law of attraction will give you more to give.
The Secret And The World
Mother Teresa of Calcutta said: “I will never go to a rally against war. If you make a rally for peace, you can invite me. ”
You can not help the world if you are focused on negative things. When you focus on negativity, in addition to reinforcing it, you still bring more of it into your own life.
When images come up that you dislike, change your thinking about them and issue a new signal. Visualize happiness, peace, and prosperity.
Dedicate your powerful thoughts to what is desired. You are extremely capable of doing this around the world and emitting good feelings despite everything that happens around you.
You dominate your life, and the Universe is responding to each command of yours. Do not be hypnotized by the images that come up if they are not the ones you want.
Take notice of them, try to attenuate them and, if you can, let them go. After that, have fresh thoughts about what you want, feel them, and be grateful that you have done it.
The Universe Is Abundant
Your mind is the creative power of all things. So how could there be shortages? It would be impossible.
Your ability to think is limitless. And so do all of them. When you have this knowledge, you think from a mind that is aware of its infinite nature.
The Universe offers everything to everyone through the law of attraction. You are the one who chooses what you want to experience. We are all capable of exploiting this unseen and unlimited stock if we turn to our thoughts and feelings.
Remember, also, to praise and bless the things around you. When you praise or bless, you are at the highest frequency of love.
The acts of praise and blessing absorb all negativity and disagreement, and the love of blessing and praise will return to you.
You Are Not Your Past
If you look back and focus on the difficulties of the past, it will only bring more difficult situations for you in the present. Give up all that, no matter what.
Do this in your favor. If you feel hurt or accused of something in the past, it is only hurting you.
You are the only one who can create the life you deserve. When you deliberately focus on what you want, when you begin to radiate good feelings, the law of attraction will respond. You just have to start, and in doing so, will unleash the magic.
When you say “I am” or “I am,” you are invoking creation because there is a statement of fact. Knowing this, would not it be a good idea to start using the two most powerful words for your benefit, AM I?
How about “I AM the receiver of all good things.” I AM happy. I AM abundant. ”
You can do anything you want. So start saying that and become aware of who you are.
When you think about the things you want and feel good, immediately get in tune with that frequency, which then takes the energy of all those things to vibrate for you, and they appear in your life.

Feeling good and controlling thoughts is harder than you think, and that is what makes the fulfillment of our desires arduous but pleasurable.
It is essential to believe, to imagine receiving what you want, to think positive, to help and to be grateful, daily, to what you have and to what you will still receive.
It is important never to forget that the universe is abundant, that you are the owner of your destiny and that the more you desire the good for others, the more you will have in your life.
