This, she likens it to becoming a Magnet because as she began to search, one living master after another was drawn to her.

Rhonda had a vision, a vision of making a film of The Secret and in over two months her production team had to learn, and did learn The Secret.

They then flew from Australia to the United States to enlist these modern day Master teachers to star in the film.

In seven weeks they had filmed fifty-five of some of the greatest teachers with over 120 hours of film.

Rhonda felt The Secret was already working for her and her team, gathering such esteemed teachers in a short time frame and creating a film in seven weeks.

What happened was – they used The Secret to create The Secret.

Her team literally magnetized everything and everyone to them.

Eight months later The Secret was released.

What is the The Secret?

 We all work with one infinite power, with one universal law, and that is –

The Law of Attraction.

What ever is going on in your mind you are attracting to you – like attracts like.

This is The Secret!


Whether you think of good thoughts or bad the Law of Attraction is not biased, it will just act on your thoughts, be they good or bad.

Any time you are thinking, the Law of Attraction is in operation. There is no pause or stop it is forever in action.

 Here are just a small number of the influential Masters of our time who took part in the film “The Secret” – explaining The Law of Attraction and how to apply it.


Dr Joe Vitale, Metaphysician, Marketing Specialist, and Author:

Everything that surrounds you right now in your life, including the things you’re complaining about, you’ve attracted.

Now I know at first blush that’s going to be something that you hate to hear. You’re going to immediately say, “I didn’t attract the car accident. I didn’t attract this particular client who gives me a hard time. I didn’t particularly attract the debt”.

Joe Vitale

But I’m here to be a little bit in your face and to say, yes you did attract it.

This is one of the hardest concepts to get, but once you’ve accepted it, it’s life transforming.

Often when people first hear this part of The Secret they recall events in history where masses of lives were lost, and they find it incomprehensible that so many people could have attracted themselves to the event.

By the Law of Attraction, they had to be on the same frequency as the event. It doesn’t necessarily mean they thought of that exact event, but the frequency of their thoughts matched the frequency of the event.

If people believe they can be in the wrong place at the wrong time, and they have no control over outside circumstances, those thoughts of fear, separation, and powerlessness, if persistent, can attract them to being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

You have a choice right now.

Do you want to believe that it’s just the luck of the draw and bad things can happen to you at any time?

Are you wanting to believe that you can be in the wrong place at the right time?

Or – that you have no control over circumstances?

Or do you want to believe and know that your life experience is in your hands and that only all good can come into your life because that is the way you think?

You have a choice, and whatever you choose to think will become your life experience.

Nothing can come into your experience unless you summon it through persistent thoughts.

Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith D.D & Visionary:

We live in a universe in which there are laws, just as there is a law of gravity. If you fall off a building it doesn’t matter if you’re a good person or a bad person, you’re going to hit the ground.

what is the law of attraction and how it works

Dr Michael Beckwith

The Law of Attraction is a law of nature. It is as impartial and impersonal as the law of gravity is. It is precise, and it is exact.

As the film swept the world, stories of miracles began to flood in: people wrote about healing from chronic pain, depression and disease. Walking for the first time after an accident even recovering from a deathbed.

People have used The Secret to manifest their perfect home, partner, jobs, and sums of money.

Even children have used it to help manifest good grades and friends.

As you travel through The Secret, you will come to know how you can have be or do anything you want. You will come to know who you really are. You will come to know the true magnificence that awaits you.


It’s the “Three Step Creative Process” – and it’s be around for 2,000 years.

Step 1. ASK

Make a command to the universe; let the universe know your thoughts.

What do you really want?

Sit down and write it down on a piece of paper or in a journal in the present tense.

Explain how you want your life to be in every area of your life.

 the best books for successDr Joe Vitale explains it as having the universe as your own personal catalogue, having fun, saying I would like to have this experience or that product, or, I would like to have such a person in my life like that.

It’s just you placing your order with the universe, it’s that easy.


Believe it is already yours

Have unwavering faith.

Believe in the unseen.

The universe will then rearrange itself to make it happen for you. You don’t need to know how it’s going to rearrange itself, it will be shown to you – you will attract the way.

Jack Cranfield (Author of Chicken Soup for the Soul):

Most of us have never allowed ourselves to want what we truly want because we can’t see how it’s going to manifest.

Jack Cranfield

Most of the time when we don’t see what we requested we get frustrated and doubtful and then disappointment comes into play.

Recognize that feeling and replace it with unwavering faith.


Feel the way you would feel when it arrives – feel it now!

It’s important in this process to feel good and happy because then you are in the frequency of what it is you are wanting.

Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith D.D. says:

We are a feeling universe. So if you just intellectually believe something and there is no corresponding feeling underneath, then you don’t necessarily have enough power to manifest what you want in your life.


When you turn that fantasy into fact you are in the position to create better and bigger fantasies.

That then is the creative process.

Bob Doyle (author) Law of Attraction Teacher:

The study of the Law of Attraction and practicing it is just figuring out what will help you generate the feelings of having it now.

Go test drive that car you desire, go shop for that home, do what ever you have to do to generate those feelings of having it now – and remember them.

Or you might get some inspired idea of action to take.

You certainly shouldn’t be doing or saying – “well I could do it this way – but man I would hate that” – because then you will not be on the right track.

Action will sometimes be required, but if you are really doing it in line with what the universe is trying to deliver then you are going to have feelings that are joyous and alive.

Time will just stop; you can do it all day.

Dr Marten Luther King said – “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase just take the first step.

Dr Joe Vitale. M.S.C.D. Metaphysician says:

The universe likes speed don’t delay don’t second guess don’t doubt when the opportunity is there when the impulse is there, when the intuitive nudge from within is there – ACT!

Start small in manifesting. Start with maybe just manifesting an old friend or a cup of coffee.


Dr Joe Vitale Metaphysician says:

A lot of people feel trapped confined or stuck in their circumstances, but what ever your circumstances are now that is only your current reality. Current reality will change as a result of using The Secret.

James Arthur Ray, Philosopher:

People look at their current state of affairs and say “this is who I am”.

That is not who you are – that is who you were.books happiness best sellers

If you look at your current state of affairs right now and you don’t have much money, or you don’t have the relationship you want, or your health is not great.

That is not who you are that’s the residual outcome of your past thoughts and actions. So you are constantly living in this residual of the thoughts and actions you have taken in the past.

When you look at your current state of affairs and define yourself by that, then you doom yourself to have nothing more than the same in the future.

Lisa Nichols, author, Motivational Speaker:

Lisa says to change your circumstances you first have to change your thinking.

Every time you look in your mail expecting to see a bill – guess what – it will be there, each day that you go out dreading the bill. You are expecting debt so debt will show up and be there.

So every day you confirm your thoughts.

Law of Attraction is always being obedient to your thoughts.

Do yourself a favor – expect a cheque!

WHAT to do to start the process

Powerful Processes.

 1. Gratitude: Start making a list of things to be grateful for. This shifts your energy and in turn shifts your thinking. Where as before you might be focusing on what you don’t have, your complaints, whatever the problems are. When you do this exercise you start to go in a different direction, you start to be grateful for all the things you feel good about.

As soon as you start to feel differently about something you already have you start to attract more of the good things, the good things you are grateful for.

Lee Brower Teacher:

Recalls a time when he had problems within his family and he remembers picking up this rock put it in his pocket and decided that every time he touched this rock he was going to think of something he was grateful for.
