ABOUT THE MOVIE: The new "extended edition" of this ground-breaking feature length movie presentation reveals The Great Secret of the universe. It has been passed throughout the ages, traveling through centuries... to reach you. This is The Secret to everything - the secret to unlimited joy, health, money, relationships, love, youth: everything you have ever wanted. In this astonishing program are ALL the resources you will ever need to understand and live The Secret. For the first time in history, the world's leading scientists, authors, and philosophers will reveal The Secret that utterly transformed the lives of every person who ever knew it... Plato, Newton, Carnegie, Beethoven, Shakespeare, Einstein. Now YOU will know The Secret. And it can change your life forever.
Not really a movie or documentary, The Secret is more of a video seminar, a presentation featuring a series of authors, philosophers, doctors, quantum physicists, entrepreneurs, and spiritual practitioners expounding on the powers of The Secret (probably the most well-known of the presenters is Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul and The Success Principles). What is The Secret, exactly? "That principle can be summed up in three simple words: thoughts become things," proclaims writer Mike Dooley, author of Notes from the Universe. Put it another way, its The Power of Positive Thinking and how it can be applied to attracting more money, better health, and relationships; in short, happiness. (There is a rundown of topics on the DVD Chapters menu).
Most of the material here is given in a straightforward manner, with the presenters simply talking into the camera to address the audience directly, which is good because it avoids the trap of pretense. On the other hand, the quick edits between presenters (would it hurt to let them say more than one sentence at a time?) don't help because it reduces many of their points to palatable sound bites and aphorisms. To many viewers, this may make the program come across as a series of nice ideas not rooted in reality. Plus it's somewhat spurious to claim that The Secret was well understood and practiced by specific individuals like Plato or Shakespeare (it's well known that some of the historical figures noted didn't exactly live happy or even prosperous lives, despite their achievements). But still, the primary message is one of positivity and hope for everyone. So what to make of it? In the end, programs like this generally find an audience that is open to the message, and many will probably find it to be a source of inspiration. Others will approach it with a good deal of skepticism or dismiss it as another way of marketing happiness the masses. It simply wont resonate with everyone, but if it resonates with you, you're likely to enjoy it and get a lot out of it. Those looking for more on The Secret might want to check out the companion book by Rhonda Byrne. --Daniel Vancini

In this original (and out-of-print) version of the film, Esther Hicks appears and channels the group of nonphysical teachers that call themselves "Abraham." Esther's "Abraham" picks up where Edgar Cayce, Jane Roberts, and the rest of the great channels of recorded history had left off. Abraham offers practical processes, and they are truly interested in the "nitty-gritty" of what we humans are living. Their goal: To help us help ourselves. That is, the triumphs and tragedies of what we are living will result in the expansion of this world and the next, but will we allow into our experience the results of what we've lived and the desires that we have given birth to? That is the question. Abraham and the other teachers in this film offer their time-tested answers. It's incredibly thought-provoking, and you will want to watch it over and over again.
What is the Law of Attraction or (LOA)? The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim "like attracts like" which in New Thought philosophy is used to sum up the idea that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life.
I have noticed in my life the above statement is VERY TRUE! When you think negative more negative things happen to you. When your positive you attract good things into your life.
You have to practice it though daily for it to work. I have a vision board and everything. I got free coffee's. Found $5 on the ground. Earned $300 out of no where. Got a free car (Yes a free car!)
You can do it too! I highly recommend this item to friends and family. I'm buying the books next!
Many times we do not understand why we work so hard and can never get ahead and that is because we speak despair into our lives, such as, "I Can Not Do This or That", "No One Understands Me", "I Always Get Sick", "I Am Not Good Enough," and ETC... These words alone are powerful and come to life because we speak them. It is like "Karma" what we speak is what we become.
This DVD goes into detail of how we can change our negative words, thoughts, and actions into positive ones. There are many speakers from different professions speaking in this video so you get a well rounded foundation of how powerful words, thoughts, and actions are in life. Although this is not a religious video it does talk about many things that many would not think is written in the bible such as:
Amplified Bible (AMP)
2. You are jealous and covet [what others have] and your desires go unfulfilled; [so] you become murderers. [To hate is to murder as far as your hearts are concerned.] You burn with envy and anger and are not able to obtain [the gratification, the contentment, and the happiness that you seek], so you fight and war. You do not have, because you do not ask.
3. [Or] you do ask [God for them] and yet fail to receive, because you ask with wrong purpose and evil, selfish motives. Your intention is [when you get what you desire] to spend it in sensual pleasures.
I would recommend this DVD to anyone who does not understand the law of the universe and how we attract negative things to us.
