22 Apr / What’s With All the Haterade?
I’m surprised by the big glass of Haterade a host of therapists, coaches and authors are serving up on The Secret. When I first discovered The Secret, I was excited, thrilled and glowing. To me, it provided the missing piece of my evolving spiritual puzzle – I could attract what I wanted into my life IF I put my focus on attracting it.
As of today, I’ve watched The Secret half a dozen times and have shared it with as many people as I possibly can.
I’m shocked at the amount of negativity that these “progressive” individuals are throwing at The Secret. I unsubscribed from Debbie Ford’s newsletter as her rants following The Secret’s appearance on Oprah made me realize how threatened she felt by the movie’s methodology (which directly challenges her entire business premise, therefore threatening her livelihood). Today I received Byron Katie’s newsletter to uncover more of the same. Add to that segments on the Today show saying The Secret is “dangerous” (Gail Saltz – stop being so afraid of losing your cush gig for god’s sake!) and numerous rants by anyone who is threatened by the possibility that everything in our life we attracted by our thoughts/feelings/actions.
All I can say at this point is – what are you all so scared of?
We can all agree that if we had more love and less anger the world would be a better, happier place. The Secret just happens to be one of the vehicles we can use to get there. Not so scary after all, eh?
While you’re at it – check out The Secret book…I recently received the audio version (thanks boyfriend!)
Okay, I’ll now promptly step down from my soap box. 🙂
Much love to you ALL!
