Ever since Rhonda Byrne released the self-help book, The Secret, in 2006, celebrities, entrepreneurs, and athletes have all been raving about how it has improved their lives. The secret claims that by using the law of attraction, you can increase your state of being, health, and money. The law of attraction is made up of three steps: visualization, creating positive emotions and energies, and cognitive reframing. While these tools can indeed get you what you desire, Rhonda Byrne left out some key details, including mandatory steps. The only people who really know how to use The Law of Attraction are the Candela researcher groups, in which Rhonda may be involved, and I, who happened upon it by a twist of good fortune and a tale for another time. I am going to release this information because I believe that knowledge should be shared, but after reading this, what you choose to do with it is up to you. Just remember, every action has a reaction.

What they say

Using visualization, followers of the Law of Attraction will try to picture themselves living the lives or dreams they wish were theirs. For example, if you are driving around in a 1999 Toyota Corolla, but wish you had that brand new 2017 Camaro, The Law would tell you that every time you drive to picture yourself driving that new Camaro. Or perhaps, if you had a big business meeting coming up in which you needed to close with some important investors, the Law would advise you, each day leading up to the meeting, to see yourself in that room with everything going as planned. However, it goes on to say that simply visualizing is not enough. You must truly believe that your visualizations are real, and that the changes needed for the desired outcome are already happening.

What they got wrong

Visualizations can be key to changing your life but there is more to this idea. There are laws in our universe, one of them being that of Equivalent Exchange, which is made up of The Law of Conservation of Mass and The Law of Natural Providence. The idea behind these laws is that you cannot take something from nothing. In order to gain, we must lose or destroy something of equal value. Many of you may now be thinking, "Well, I'm fucked. I have nothing to offer that'd be of equal value to the dreams I have." Actually, you do! Sort of. In theory, there is an alternate you in a parallel universe who has something to offer. They are walking around right now living your dream, driving your Camaro, and sleeping with your soul mate. The key to having everything you want is simple. You must visualize yourself in that parallel universe losing everything, and truly believe that these changes are taking place. It is a slow process, but as your other "you" begins to head down a steady stream of misfortunes, you will begin to see your dreams take shape.

What they say

The Law of Attraction states that there are positive and negative energies in our universe. If you begin to think positively over time, you will attract these good energies. The more positive energies you have surrounding you, the more positive experiences you will have in life.

What they got wrong

While there are indeed positive and negative energies in our universe, thinking positively is only half of the equation. Have you ever wondered why bad things happen to kind people? Or why the biggest assholes are the most successful? It is because the truly pure individuals in our world are always wishing away all of their positive energy and hope to others. While on the other hand, the selfish assholes of our world are hoarding them, and only emitting their negative energies into the world. Now you don't have to be an asshole to everyone you meet to get what you want, although that wouldn't hurt. The real key is to only wish positive things upon yourself and maybe someone you really care about. Think of these energies as money, if you will. If you were to hand out all of your money to everyone you met on the street, you would soon find yourself asking others for theirs.

What they say

Cognitive reframing is used within The Law of Attraction to change the way you perceive the world around you. It helps you to understand when you are being irrational, and to rid yourself of an "all or nothing" mentality (aka: splitting).

What they got wrong

This is the one I wouldn't change. Being able to keep a clear head at all times, as well as knowing yourself, is key to being successful in whatever you choose to do in life. When you can look at the world through unbiased eyes, you will begin to see opportunities that you otherwise would have missed. You will also have gained the ability to filter out unneeded stress.

Now that you have all the information, it is up to you what you choose to do with it. Just remember that the more you gain and the higher you rise, the more you will be seen by others, the more you will have to lose, and the further you will fall if you lose it. If you have come across this information in this universe, I am sure that there are other "you's" in parallel universes watching and waiting.
