The Secret: 10 Years Later

It’s hard to believe The Secret book and movie came out more than ten years ago.

They’re still cooking, still circulating, and still changing lives.

I’m forever grateful for The Secret, whether I was in it or not.

It triggered an awakening, a conversation, and hope.

But it also created confusion.

Many people watched the movie or read the book, tried what they learned, and felt “It didn’t work.”

And that’s the problem.

img_9057

The Secret was only an introduction to a principle. It revealed the basics of the Law of Attraction to the masses.

But that’s all it did: introduce the idea.

It didn’t offer the depth you need to understand the law or use it to create a new reality.

Even today, ten years later, I see people not fully understand what I call “the missing secret.”

A secret message for you

In short, you get what you unconsciously believe, not necessarily what you consciously say.

In other words, intentions are one thing, but you also need to know about counter-intentions.

Let me explain.

Intentions are what you consciously declare.

“I intend to increase my sales” is an intention.

“I intend to create a bigger business” is an intention.

“I intend to attract my soulmate,” is an intention.

Intentions are powerful; they engage the mind, rally the emotions, and help create momentum.

Intentions are good.

But.

Counter-intentions are in the subconscious/unconscious mind.

If you unconsciously believe “money is evil” or “money is bad” or “I don’t deserve good things,” then you will veto your intentions.

Larry-King-001

You will block them.

You will unconsciously sabotage your own success. You won’t even know it.

You’ll blame your lack of success on other people, or politicians, or the current economic climate, or even The Secret.

And that’s the missing secret.

You can sit and meditate, visualize, affirm and wear amulets all day long, but you won’t attract what you want while the limiting beliefs remain operating in your deeper mind.

The unconscious is far more powerful than the conscious. Numerous books on neuroscience prove this fact. So, in order to attract what you consciously want, you have to clean up your unconscious/subconscious beliefs.

The movie and book never addressed this issue. Again, they were only introducing an idea. We need the sequel to the The Secret to understand how to actually begin to manifest the reality we want on a consistent basis.

Since there’s never been a sequel to the movie (there have been numerous follow up books, such as The Magic and the recent, How the Secret Changed My Life), I’ll give you a formula to help you make better use of the Law of Attraction.

Ready?

Here’s The Formula:

First: State your intention.

What do you want to have, do, or be?

Be clear.

Be specific.

Declare it.

Own it.

Write it down.

That’s your goal/intention/outcome.

It should ignite the fire of desire in you.

Second: Note what objections surface.

What thoughts come to mind?

Do you have doubts?

Fears?

Concerns?

Be honest.

Really look within.

Stating your intention will trigger limiting thoughts about attracting it. Those are clues to your limiting beliefs. Welcome them.

Write those down, too.

Third: Clear the limiting beliefs.

Ask, “Do I believe this?”

Or, “Where’s the evidence for this belief?”

Act like a good detective and unearth the reasons you may have for the beliefs, doubts, fears, or concerns.

Then question the evidence.

Question the reasons.

What you are doing is dismantling your own belief system.

You will weaken it, and eventually clear it.

You will deprogram yourself.

You will rewire your own mind.

You will be free.

This last step is something you can use a wide variety of techniques to accomplish. I’ve written many books to help, such as my newest, The Miracle: Six Steps to Enlightenment. You can use EFT (the tapping method). You can use the Hawaiian spiritual tool called ho’oponopono, which I wrote about in Zero Limits and AT Zero. You basically say, “I love you, I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you” to your connection to the Universe, as a type of prayer for cleansing. You can get into my coaching program, you can work with another person, you can write out a dialogue with yourself, questioning your beliefs in writing.

Modern brain sciences prove that you can change your own mind.

Read books like Shad Helmstetter’s The Power of Neuroplasticity or Jeffrey Schwartz’s You Are Not Your Brain.

The ways and means to “get clear” of counter-intentions are readily available to you.

And proven to work.

But it’s essential to do this step in order to attract what you intend, or something even better.

Again, I’m grateful for The Secret, and you should be, too. It may not have revealed the “missing secret” but it paved the way for a whole new world of transformation, including your own.

Imaginotions: Part One

For once there lived a young man who felt lost in the world.

He did not know what he wanted.

He felt alone and uncertain.

He had energy and good health, but his mind darted around like a puppy chasing leaves.

And then one day the young man saw a cloud that spoke.

“I know you,” said the cloud.

The boy, not used to clouds speaking, stared in silence.

“I know you,” the cloud repeated.

“I-I can’t possibly see how,” the young man replied, feeling idiotic and confused.

“I know you,” again said the cloud.

“What do you know?” the boy asked.

“I know you will follow your path, though for now you feel you have none, and I know your path will lead to greatness, happiness, satisfaction and great accomplishment.”

“I don’t know what any of that means,” said the boy.

“You will, one day,” said the cloud.

“But today? What do I do today?”

“In each life there is a path already planned,” the cloud explained. “You have free will to struggle with it and resist it, but once you give in to it and surrender to your path, all will be smooth – like clouds floating in the sky.”

“But how do I know my path?”

“It’s revealed in bite sized clues, given in each moment. Quiet your mind, relax, and tune within to the next clue.”

Then what?”

“Then follow it.”

And before the boy knew it, the cloud began to break apart and slowly disappear.

“I know you,” said the cloud as it merged with the sky.

The young man, not sure what to make of all this, went to sleep.

It would be years before he would awaken.

And even upon awakening, he wondered if it were all a dream.

Or maybe it still is?

Ao Akua,

Joe

PS – You know what this means.

Blame Star Wars

“You can blame Star Wars for that.”

I was talking to Guitar Monk Mathew Dixon, explaining that I see far too many people focusing on mind power and not realizing they need body power, too.

When I post pictures on Facebook or on this blog of me bending nails, bolts, steel rods and horseshoes, people often assume I’m doing it with just my mind.

I bent this horseshoe with mind directing body

I bent this horseshoe with mind directing body

While the process starts and continues with my mind, I am using my will power and mind power to direct my body to an end result: bending steel.

But why do so many people assume you can accomplish things with mind power alone?

Why do so many “New Age” types want to sit and visualize but not get up and act?

Why do so many people deceive themselves with magical thinking?

“You can blame it on Star Wars,” Mathew said.

Well, I’ve never seen a Star Wars movie.

None of them.

Or read any of the books.

To bring myself current, I watched the first film from 1977.

I nodded off several times during it.

While lines like “May the Force be with you” stood out, they were inaccurate to me.

Since “The Force” is always with you, a more accurate line would be, “May you be with the Force.”

The latter quote would remind you to align yourself with The Force.

But George Lucas didn’t ask my opinion.

“The second movie is the culprit,” Mathew explained.

The second one was the 1980 The Empire Strikes Back.

Apparently that’s the movie where a lot of things are accomplished with “Jedi mind tricks” and thought alone.

And apparently a lot of people assumed they could do the same if their mind were only stronger.

Yoda taught Jedi mind control for 800 years?

Yoda taught Jedi mind control for 800 years?

Good luck with that.

I don’t want to blame the movies, though.

The theme of “mind over matter” appears everywhere, in metaphysical literature as well as popular culture.

You’ll find it in comic books as well as bestselling books.

You’ll find it in Richard Bach’s Illusions and The Messiah’s Handbook and on television shows such as Flash and Super Girl.

Who doesn’t want to have the ability to create out of thought alone, or make things appear with a few magic words?

Who doesn’t want to have super powers?

Who doesn’t want to be Superman?

Or Superwoman?

The thing is, life doesn’t work like that.

You were given a body and a mind, and the ability to use both.

We are not brains in jars.

We are brains in bodies.

When we use both, then we can attract miracles.

But the miracles “appear” through natural means.

Even Wallace Wattles said those exact words — natural means — in his famous 1915 book, The Science of Getting Rich.

He stated that it’s the combination of mind and action that leads to attracting results.

It’s not just mind.

It’s not just body.

It’s both.

Slides of Einstein's brain. Without the body, it's just a curiosity.

Slides of Einstein's brain. Without the body, it's just a curiosity.

If I pick up a horseshoe and “will” it to bend but not actually try to bend it, I’ll just be holding a horseshoe.

Nothing will happen.

I have to add my mind – mind power, will power, belief – and direct my body to actually bend the shoe.

It’s the same with anything you want.

If you want to attract a new car (or job, or spouse, or you-name-it), you want to begin with your visualization and affirmation. You won’t even try if you don’t kick start the process with your belief.

So, it begins with mind.

But if that’s all you do, you probably won’t attract anything.

You might even become skeptical or critical.

You’ll say “This mind stuff doesn’t work!”

Of course it doesn’t – if you are only using your mind.

But add your literal action, and you begin to co-create what you want into being.

It’s still not likely that what you want will just “appear” like in a Star Wars or Harry Potter movie.

I’m not ruling magic out. I believe in magic and miracles. I also believe that we live in a “no limit” universe, where we can probably do what some would say is impossible with the right mindset and proper action.

I’m just reminding you that you have a body for a reason.

Use it to aid in the attraction of your goal.

Use it for action.

There is real magic in the world: it’s using your mind and your body to achieve a specific end goal.

For example, if I want to write a book, I don’t sit and “think it” into reality.

Instead, I use every “mind trick” I know – from visualizing to Nevillizing to The Remembering Process and more – to get my mind around the idea of what I want.

And then I start writing.

I do something.

And it’s the combination of both mind and action that leads to me being an author.

None of this is a slam against Star Wars. I’m not blaming the movies at all. I’m told the latest installment, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is spectacular.

Just remember that movies and television shows program you, usually unconsciously and subconsciously.

Focus on solutions you can act on

Focus on solutions you can act on

Recently I watched the movie The Martian and came away from it realizing the focus was always on solutions.

It taught an “Anything can be solved” attitude.

I liked it.

And I recently saw the movie The Walk, the true story of a young man with the “impossible” dream of walking a tightrope across the World Trade towers in New York City.

And he did it.

The movie conveyed the message that virtually “anything is possible.”

I liked it, too.

Star Wars is great entertainment and it’s great fun to imagine having no limits due to mind power alone.

Just don’t think you can pay the bills with a Jedi Mind Trick.

Ao Akua,

Joe

Butt Dialed Bad News

One day my cell phone rang.

It doesn’t ring very often because very few people have the number.

I didn’t recognize the calling number, and there was no Caller ID name listed, so I figured it was a random sales call and declined it.

But a minute later, the phone rang again.

Same number.

Again, I declined it.

But a few minutes later, I got notified of a message.

Curious, I played the voice mail.

I was shocked at what I heard.

It was a slightly muffled conversation between two people, a man and a woman, bad mouthing my music.

It was like being a fly on the wall, listening to a couple bash your first born.

Specifically, they were quite openly thrashing my first singer-songwriter album, Strut!, from 2012.

My first singer-songwriter album

My first singer-songwriter album 2012

“It’s trash!” the woman said.

“It’s really garbage!” the man said.

I was shocked.

Baffled.

Hurt.

I recognized the woman’s voice.

I thought she was a friend.

Their entire conversation lasted several minutes.

Since the woman had “butt dialed” me by accident, she didn’t have a clue that their exchange had been recorded.

But it was.

I’m not sure how you would feel if you overheard people you know trashing something you created out of love and passion, but I was confused.

I reached out to my music support team, my friends who helped create that first album, and told them what happened.

They were angry.

They wanted to call the woman and give her a piece of their mind.

I didn’t want to do that.

I wanted to process the Twilight Zone-ish experience and see what I could learn.

As I meditated on the bizarre event, I realized a few things –

  • not everyone likes my books (!)
  • not everyone likes me (?)
  • much of music today doesn’t appeal to me

Of course, I wouldn’t call someone and tell them my opinion of their books or music or them, but realizing that not everyone loves me or my work, while baffling, was somehow comforting.

And then I thought about all the good things regarding my first singer-songwriter album.

Musician makes cover

Musician makes cover

For example –

  • Strut! has original songs that were nominated for awards,
  • one song was turned into a music video with over 300,000 views,
  • the album was mentioned in Rolling Stone magazine,
  • the songs were recorded with the help of Grammy nominated people
  • and one Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician,
  • and I was voted #1 singer-songwriter by Reverbnation for it.
Voted #1 singer-songwriter 3 years

Voted #1 singer-songwriter 3 years

So, obviously, my music must not be “trash.”

It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but what is?

And I admit that my later albums – such as One More Day (a bestseller that sold out almost instantly after it was released and includes Grammy nominated singer Ruthie Foster on one hypnotic track) – reveal a more polished singer-songwriter, but I doubt that the first album was that bad.

Latest Bestselling CD sold out

Latest Bestselling CD sold out

Not everyone loves Elvis, the Beatles, Lady Gaga, or Neil Diamond – and those people are legends – but not everyone likes any of the hundreds of thousands of new, alternative, jazz or any of a staggering amount of music coming out today, either.

So, what are you or I going to do?

Stop?

Give up?

Let the critics win?

Mark Twain wrote in his autobiography –

“I believe that the trade of critic, in literature, music, and the drama, is the most degraded of all trades, and that it has no real value–certainly no large value…However, let it go. It is the will of God that we must have critics, and missionaries, and congressmen, and humorists, and we must bear the burden.” – Mark Twain

I’m with Twain, but I didn’t get to the same conclusion overnight.

All of this was a day-long process.

It took me more than a few minutes to get clarity.

After I realized that what I was given was an opportunity to clear up some limiting beliefs I had about approval, I was free to turn the event into a teaching lesson for you and me both, hence this post.

As I wrote in my book, The Attractor Factor, I pulled a TIISG: Turn It Into Something Good.

As you pursue your dreams and goals, you will probably encounter a person or two that doesn’t approve.

You have to continue forward anyway.

There will always be critics.

Their job is easy: put you or your project down.

Your job is harder but more rewarding:

Allow them their opinion, and continue towards your vision.

After all, everyone with a butt has an opinion.

And if you’re really worried about being butt dialed a bad review, just turn off your phone.

Ao Akua,

joe
