Manifesting & Deliberate Creation: The Secret

Welcome to Love Your Life + Law of Attraction.

Today we’re going to talk about whether The Secret—and the Law of Attraction—is about more than shiny pennies.

This episode is perfect for anyone who wants to learn…

  • A criticism about The Secret, Law of Attraction, and shiny pennies
  • Why it’s more than OK to want what you want, even if it’s a European vacation rather than world peace
  • Why you shouldn’t be embarrassed or ashamed of what you want
  • The reason we want everything we want—from the relationship to the latest iPhone
  • How my obsession with Law of Attraction has helped me put how I feel ahead of the manifestation
  • What Rhonda Byrne of The Secret says is the shortcut to anything you want in life


“You do not have to use your words. You just have to feel it in your Being. ‘I desire this. I adore this. I appreciate this’, and so on. That desire is the beginning of all attraction… You never grow tired of expansion or creation, for there is no ending to the new ideas of desires that flow. With every new idea of something you would like to experience, possess, or know…will come its actualization or manifestation—and with that manifestation will also come a new perspective from which you will desire.” —Abraham from Manifest Your Desires

“Anything you want, you want because you think you will feel better in the having of it. Just feel better, then you can realize what you want.” —Abraham

“Everything we want, whatever it may be, is motivated by love. It is to experience the feelings of love in having those things—youth, money, the perfect person, job, body or health. To attract the things we love we must transmit love, and those things will appear immediately.” —Rhonda Byrne

“People say, ‘The joy is in the journey,’ but they rarely understand what they are saying. You are in this focused time/space reality with goals and objectives that call you because as you identify a desire it literally summons life through you. Life summoning through you is what it’s all about, not the completion of anything.” —Abraham

“The goal is feeling better. It isn’t the job, it isn’t the money, it isn’t what I think it is. It is the emotional way I believe I will feel in the accomplishment of that.” —Abraham

“There is no desire that anyone holds for any other reason than that they believe they will feel better in the achievement of it. Whether it is a material object, a physical state of being, a relationship, a condition, or a circumstance—at the heart of every desire is the desire to feel good. And so, the standard of success in life is not the things or the money—the standard of success is absolutely the amount of joy you feel.” —Abraham

“Attend to your joy first.” —Rhonda Byrne

“It’s important to feel good, to be happy, because when you’re feeling good you’re putting yourself in the frequency of what you want.” —Marci Shimoff

“Unfortunately, many people think that the uncomfortable feeling of wanting something they do not expect to experience is what the feeling of desire is; they no longer recognize the feeling of pure desire as that fresh, eager feeling of expectancy that they knew when they were younger. The feeling of pure desire is always delicious, as it represents the vibrations that are stretched out before you, into your unseen future, preparing the way for the Law of Attraction to match things up on your behalf.” —Abraham

“Your dominant intent is to be joyful. The doing and the having will come into alignment once you get that one down.” —Abraham

“The shortcut to anything you want in your life is to BE and FEEL happy now!” —Rhonda Byrne

“The standard of success in life isn’t the things. It isn’t the money or the stuff. It is absolutely the amount of joy you feel.” —Abraham
