Manifestation, The Secret, and The Shadow

One of the key exponents of the power of manifestation and the Law of Attraction in everyday life is of Rhonda Byrne, who both produced the film The Secret and wrote the book of The Secret back in 2006 / 2007.

These were works which led to a vast, perhaps even exponential, increase in people’s interest in the Law of Attraction and manifestation in everyday life.

One of the more interesting questions is whether or not those two works have actually in any way influenced the number of people who are able to succeed at manifesting their destiny and a ability to consciously create the world around them.

My guess is that that probably hasn’t happened. The Secret was a good exposition of several experts talking about how the Law of Attraction and conscious creation actually work. Unfortunately, there were not many practical instructions or techniques which people could take away and use to consciously create their own destiny.

Suppose, for example, that you are a man who wanted to manifest money and you went to The Secret to find out how you might go about manifesting it.

I’m very much afraid that you wouldn’t find much help there! What you would find is a series of general instructions about what you could do to improve the quality of your life, but very few practical tips that could transform the theory of manifestation & conscious creation into a real way of changing this particularly important area of your life.

Law of Attraction – Visualization

But there’s no reason why The Secret, and the Law of Attraction ideas about manifestation which lie behind it, couldn’t be used in this way.

What I’d like to do is try and give you practical program which you can use to change your physical reality in a very important way. The secret is a combination of desire, belief and expectancy.  Lack of wealth is the most common deficiency among people, and it’s the one that men have most difficulty in finding a remedy for – chiefly because they are embarrassed about seeking help.

So obviously any way in which men can find a way of dealing with this problem, whether by conscious creation, or by finding someone who can help them with it, is going to be advantageous to the well-being of not only the men themselves but the partners with whom they are in relationship.

So the first thing you have to do is make a very clear intention to change your financial state. That is to say, you have to decide exactly what you want to achieve, and what is your desired outcome, in fact.

Having made that clear decision, the next step in the process is to find a technique you can use to improve your wealth generating skill. A good place to start is with The Millionaire Fast Lane. Now, note that you have to follow the instructions in this book very carefully, because it is a practical manual and it needs you to be serious about what you are doing!

And when you’re following the instructions, you need to use the visualization techniques and the affirmation techniques that are set out in any form of conscious creation program.

Now, it’s really important that you expect improvements to occur, because without expectation, you will definitely find results of the technique variable.

The key formula is

  • Really wanting something.
  • Then finding a formula or action plan by which you can manifest it.
  • Then expecting results to happen, and backing this up with the visualization of your desired outcome to reinforce the reality of that in your mind. (“As if” it actually existed in your life right now.)
  • These are all essential techniques that you can very easily use both alone and together with your partner to manifest the reality of much better performance an achievement in all areas of your life.

Several people I know have improved their wealth performance from just a few tens of thousands a year to hundreds of thousands. This is the whole object of the exercise of conscious creation!

However, there is a problem here. If you don’t believe you can have what you want, you will fail. If you don’t desire it intensely enough, you will fail. And if you don’t expect to get it, you will fail.

But why, you may say, would any of these things apply?

In a word – because of your shadow. The part of yourself which you hide repress and deny. The part of you that actually governs your life. You see, down in your unconscious are many false beliefs about you and your place in the world. they come from what you learnt about yourself during childhood. Did you, for example, pick up a belief that you were destined to be poor? Or that you weren’t worthy of much? Or that you were in fact worthless? These shadow beliefs get in the way of the unconscious mind producing wealth and success, because they have been there for so long and they are so much stronger than your conscious intention. You need to change these fundamental, unconscious shadow beliefs about yourself before you can achieve anything in the world. And how is that done? Simply, with shadow work sessions, tools and techniques.

To explore what this means in practice, you need to consult with a good shadow work facilitator who can help you overcome the difficulties of the past and reach a position of greater self-confidence and personal power. Only then will the Law Of Attraction begin to work consistently for you.

Certainly I do know that combining the Law of Attraction and manifestation is an unusual set of techniques to use for wealth creation, but then – isn’t that exactly the point about this technique?

That by extending the boundaries of what you know, and going beyond what is known to others, you can find yourself in a place where you’re manifesting much greater wealth, more self-confidence, and great self-esteem – all of which can only help your relationship!
