Laws Of Attraction: The Forgotten Secrets

"The Secret" was big news when it was first published and popularized. It turned the principles of attraction into a major media success that grabbed the attention of the whole world! It’s a riveting read but the story doesn’t stop there because there are additional forgotten laws that aren't mentioned in the quirky little red volume you'll find on the bookstore shelf. The additional laws are now coming to the fore as part of much more comprehensive programs that fill in the gaps left by "The Secret". So let's take a look at what it portrays and how the expanded programs add to what we already know.

In principle it works like this - we make a shopping list known to the Universe to attract the items on the list into our lives. "The Cosmic Ordering Service" by Barbel Mohr says much the same thing in an light-hearted read. In its simplest form you think of what it is that you want or need in your life and then represent it in some way on a board as an abstract aide memoire. You then have to spend a little time dwelling on it regularly and invest real emotion in how it would feel to have that thing in your life. The theory goes that the Universe will respond to your request by delivering it to you. That’s an oversimplification but the point is that the only thing limiting us is our imagination. You can order absolutely anything that serves you or the Universe!

It sounds a bit far fetched but have you ever said to yourself “When I get to the mall I’m going to get a parking lot right next to the entrance”? Experiment with it just for fun. Weird things start to happen. If you ask for an apartment for 500 a month with a real fire, two bedrooms, oil fired heating, an outside recreation area that allows pets and is situated out in the country the chances are that something will come up that fits this description, exactly, sooner or later.

Your friends may laugh at you because your ideal let at that price may turn out to be a complete wreck but then you have to ask yourself whether you were clear with your order. All the items on the list are checked but did you specify that the place needed to be a palace? It's about having clarity in your goals.

The Universe also won't be offended if you turn it down and redefine your list. In fact the Universe only wants what’s best and positive for you. Deepak Chopra's book, "Synchrodestiny: Harnessing The Infinite Power of Coincidence to Create Miracles", discusses the power of the Universe as a positive force that acts as a vehicle for realizing our potential.

The important thing is that Chopra makes the point that we need to connect with the Universe to realize our potential. He suggests meditation and mantras as a suitable way of doing this. That's not so dissimilar to the process outlined in "The Secret". You concentrate your thoughts on the images of what you want in a process of developing awareness and focusing your intention.

Bob Proctor first studied these principles in the 60s and as a result of his work he’s developed a comprehensive program revealing the 11 forgotten laws. This addresses the omissions in the earlier publication. The principle of attraction remains intact but you’ll see from the list that while it's on the list, there are 10 other forgotten laws that he claims will transform your life. As well as giving advice on how to work with the program he expands on:

  • The Law of Thinking
  • The Law of Supply
  • The Law of Attraction
  • The Law of Receiving
  • The Law of Increase
  • The Law of Compensation
  • The Law of Non-Resistance
  • The Law of Forgiveness
  • The Law of Sacrifice
  • The Law of Obedience
  • The Law of Success

The list reads more like a spiritual manual than a strategy for increasing abundance in all forms into your life. Its holistic approach seems to be the key and the reason why the narrow focus of "The Secret" can seem a little shallow in comparison. The more detailed program has the effect of focusing the reader on areas of life that otherwise become forgotten, particularly in these financially challenging times.

Admittedly if you want to act on the forgotten laws you'll need to be a bit more disciplined than if you just want to experiment with a vision board. If, however, you can get a parking space at the mall just by applying a fragment of the laws imagine what you could achieve if you practiced them all. You may be surprised by the results of applying the forgotten laws.
