Movies Like The Secret and What the Bleep at Spiritual Cinema Circle


If you ever saw The Secret or What the Bleep Do They Know, you discovered that there is a new breed of filmmakers out there creating wonderful movies that uplift the spirit.

Some of these independent films have tiny budgets, though, and they don't often make it into theaters.

And yet the need for these films is huge - people really want films that teach them cool stuff about the human spirit, the human heart, and the miracles of living in these exciting times.

Well, Spiritual Cinema Circle has stepped up to the plate and is delivering these wonderful films right to your doorstep! They're collecting shorts, interviews, and full length movies that carry that positive vibes you've come to love from movies like The Secret and publishing them every month in their unique DVD collection.

The best thing is that you can subscribe to their service at a low cost and receive one DVD every month filled with great films and uplifting short movies!

And better yet you actually get to KEEP the DVD's that you receive, which means you'll be adding to your film collection as you go along.

Since you can't find these movies anywhere else and most of them will never make it to theaters, this is your chance to check them out.

I've posted an article about Spiritual Cinema Circle at my affirmations website:

Turbo Charge Your Affirmations Today Free Report


From time to time I like to offer free reports to my readers as thanks for all of your incredible support and positive energy.

People write to me every day about the successes they've been having when they work with affirmations and visualizations, and these stories are so inspiring, I just can't keep them a secret any longer!

One of the critical things I've discovered, though, which separates people who are successful with affirmations from people who haven't yet been successful has to do with the scope of their projects. It's really helpful to start with small, even silly, affirmations at first. Then when those things manifest in your life you'll be so jazzed that you'll be ready to tackle those larger projects without hesitation.

My free report goes into detail about small affirmations projects and outlines a bunch of real life success stories from people who focused on small stuff first before they worked up to tackling the big stuff.

I know you'll enjoy the report!

Zen Alarm Clock


I've always been a big fan of natural sounds vs. synthesized sounds. We listen to so much stuff that is "non-organic" or mechanical. From the blare of traffic horns to the buzzes and beeps of our cell phones, we're surrounded by a horrible sonic soup of unnatural sounds.

Researchers have proven that our bodies respond well to natural sounds -- the sounds of nature or the sound created by classical style instruments (instead of electrical or synthesized sounds.)

But one thing that has been lacking in the marketplace is an alarm clock that incorporates a natural sound instead of a beep or a buzz.

Well, I recently discovered a fabulous alarm clock that has been around for a while. Maybe you've heard of it. It's the Zen Alarm Clock.

This clock comes in both digital and analog (normal clock face) styles. The alarm is a chime that is run gently at gradually increasing intervals. So you don't wake up startled by a loud buzz or mechanical beep.

If you're like me and you like to meditate or work with a few affirmations to "create your day" when you are waking up, you know how precious those few waking moments are in the morning when you're still in that delicate Alpha brainwave state.

Well, the zen alarm clock and its beautiful Tibetan style chime help you to maintain that Alpha state and wake up slowly. So if you use a zen alarm clock, you'll find it easier to remember your dreams. And you'll enjoy some powerful moments as you wake up which are perfect for setting your intentions for your day and doing affirmations.

I'm such a fan of this clock that I've written a review of it. You can learn more about the clock and how it works here:

Zen Alarm Clock

Since I started using the clock I find it easier to maintain a positive emotional state throughout the day. I wake up less cranky and more ready to have a fabulous day! (And I am a heavy sleeper who usually HATES getting up in the morning!)

Why You Should Avoid Focusing On a Specific Amount When Manifesting Money


A reader wrote to me asking for more information about money manifestation. Should we focus on a specific amount of money or leave the Universe some wiggle room when we're manifesting abundance?

Larry was a student of a brilliant energy researcher and pioneer named Lester Levenson who figured out a way to release trapped negative emotions and showed people how to start manifesting miracles in their everyday lives.

Learn the Nitty Gritty About the Law of Attraction


Why Most Affirmations Fail and the Four Building Blocks of Successful AffirmationsbyJennifer Shepherd, the Lipstick Mystic®Thanks to all of you who have grabbed a copy of my new eBook. Response to the book has been incredible, and I'm still in shock!I think the main thing people are responding to is how the book isn't a bunch of theory and it's not trying to sell you on a particular spiritual path or belief system. I discuss the nuts and bolts of the Law of Attraction, which is in itself a neutral law, and show you how you can start attracting more of what you WANT instead of what you DON'T WANT.The Law of Attraction shows us that we are constantly CREATING as well as MISCREATING. When we see that it all stems from the same place -- that vibration that we're putting out through our emotions, intentions, and actions -- we can start shifting into experiencing situations that give us happiness instead of sorrow.I've outlined extremely specific steps you can take to put the law of attraction to work for you. And I've laid out four basic building blocks of successful creation in a way that doesn't require you to "believe" anything. These principles simple ARE, and I'm simply encouraging you to make use of them!Testimonials about the book are also pouring in."As I read your delightful ebook, I see it's grounded in common sense, with liberal dashes of zesty inspiration and lots of practical advice from someone who's 'been there, done that.' Awesome!" ---- Cynthia Larson, author of Aura Advantage and publisher of the Reality Shifters website:'t have a copy yet? You can order my book now at my new Free Daily Affirmation website.

Montel Williams and Nora Ephron on The Secret Plus Solving France's Homeless Problem


Montel Williams talked about The Secret today on his talk show. A metaphysical subject turning up on a major talk show (other than Oprah?) Who woulda thunk it was possible!

Meanwhile, Nora Ephron does a hilarious, sardonic take on The Secret's more ludicrous aspects at The Huffington Post:

Nora Ephron on The Secret

And some young people in France don't need The Secret or any self-help guru to inspire them to do a good deed. An exciting grassroots movement has been started by the young people of France, some kids as young as eleven. They are solving the problem of homelessness in a great way:

The Secret on Larry King Again Tonight


Boy, Larry King is really on a roll with supporting The Secret.

He's doing a third night of discussion on the subject of "Beyond Positive Thinking" tonight on CNN. The broadcast happens at 9:00 PM Eastern (6:00 PM Pacific) tonight(Thursday, March 8th).

The show will feature James Ray, John Assaraf, Joe Vitale, Lisa Nichols and Bob Proctor from The Secret movie.

If you're wondering what all the buzz is about The Secret, this panel discussion should give you an excellent overview of some of the concepts everybody is suddenly talking about.

Instant Manifestation


Instant manifestation is a term that is sometimes thrown around in spiritual circles. It's the idea of creating your reality instantaneously. Instant manifestation is also known as "you create your reality." And although sometimes when we are working with affirmations, power prayer, or applied faith it can seem to take FOREVER before we manifest something we want, manifestation can also happen instantly.I want to share a fun example of instant manifestation that happened to me today.I work from home and I like to go to various diners in our area for a simple soup and sandwich lunch. I find that it's important to my creative juices for me to get out of the house each day and do a little writing while I sit down for a light lunch. So as always, I had notes with me about various writing projects and websites that I'm working on. And the soup I ordered (red pepper and potato!) was excellent, the coffee was strong, and I was buzzing along with creative energy.As I drove back home, preparing to get back to work, I was thinking very specifically that I wanted to manifest some sales that afternoon - or one sale that was for a large amount. I've been working to build different websites that promote various affiliate products, and I've been doing lots of work behind the scenes to build traffic to these sites. Some days, I get no sales. Other days, I get a lot.So I was listening to some jazz music on the radio while driving home and I thought about instant manifestation and how I was ready to instantly manifest something! And I specifically set the intention that I was instantly manifesting some nice new sales for the day.When I got home, I manifested a sale from an unexpected direction. I do a lot of freelance writing for various newspapers and websites, and usually I'm just submitting my self-syndicated column each week and not doing any new assignments for my editors. But to my surprise, one of my editors called out of the blue pitching a very specific, fast turnaround writing job that only I could do. And the job was fun (writing an astrology profile for movie star Jake Gyllenhaal) and it paid the exact amount that I was intending to manifest in sales that day.It was a definite case of instant manifestation, and it carried just the right energy I brought to my intention - energies of fun, speed, and creativity. All those things were incorporated into doing this job. It only took me an hour to complete, too, so it was very fun and easy to do.Instant manifestation gets a lot easier when you don't have any resistance around receiving the thing you're manifesting. I had no resistance to receiving an intriguing new job offer from one of my editors because I enjoy doing all kinds of whimsical spiritual writing gigs and this was right up my alley. Plus, since I've been an astrologer for ages and a freelance writer for almost as long, this job perfectly suited me.So - what are you going to instantly manifest today?Go for it. It's meant to be easy - and fun!You've probably heard about The Secret and the law of attraction. Learn more about instant manifestation and creating your own reality.

The Release Technique and the Law of Attraction


Although law of attraction teachers have it right when they say that we can change our reality by shifting our thoughts in a more positive direction, sometimes people get really stuck trying to be positive. This is completely normal.I don't much like it when gurus criticize a student for being too negative. Negativity has its origins in past pains and wounds we have suffered. If we don't work on clearing out that old pain, our ability to remain positive will be hampered. Some teachers naively say that all you have to do is to learn to be positive all the time. They act like it's an instaneous process, to teach your body to hold energy in a different way.The truth is that it doesn't just happen overnight. Yes, our cells are regenerating all the time, and yes, we can gradually send them fresh messages of peace and well-being. But our cells DO tend to hold an energy charge of emotional pain and psychic trauma if we are particularly sensitive or have experienced events that have induced post-traumatic stress disorder.You probably wouldn't think of yourself as someone who is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, but psychotherapists are finding that this condition is much more widespread than previously thought. We usually think of PSTD sufferers as people who have been in war zones, but there are hundreds of thousands of "super sensitives" in the US who respond to what some would call "minor stress" as deep trauma. So sometimes a person's body is reacting from a post-traumatic place even if they're simply going through a breakup or a job change. Any time you experience severe stress you can go into post-trauma. And you'll feel the aftereffects for some time afterwards. When a wounded person starts working with the law of attraction, some intense emotions come up. So it's important to go through some sort of release process at a deep, cellular level to release trauma that is buried there. We all have trauma that is buried within our cells. As rebirthing pracitioners have discovered, it all starts out at birth, when we go through tremendous physical and psychic stress. If you don't find a way to release past pain, any new messages that you try to create about being positive and attracting abundance will be drowned out by that denser frequency coming from your past wounds.Fortunately, there are many techniques out there to help you let go of this buried trauma. One technique I especially like was created by Lester Levenson. One of his students, Larry Crane, has continued to teach these ideas. You may have heard of The Release Technique and his book "The Abundance Course." I really like the way Larry teaches. He keeps the release process simple and to the point, teaching you how to connect with negative emotions as they surface and gently release them. By doing this simple work each day, you can easily start to shift your core emotional "tone" to one that is much more positive. There's nothing particulary mystical about Lester Levenson's technique. It's more of an awareness method, a system for teaching you to be more aware of your emotions so you can carefully let go of the ones that no longer serve you.After working with The Release Technique for a few weeks, you'll have released some of that old emotional baggage. Then you'll find it a lot easier to fixate on a new frequency of positivity and joy.Check out Larry Crane's wonderful audio series, in which he guides you through the release process [...]

Esther Hicks and The Secret Versions One and Two


Many people who have seen the original version of The Secret with Esther Hicks in it found it to be far superior to the version that was released later, which doesn't have her in it. The version of The Secret currently making the rounds doesn't include Esther Hicks.

Author Linda Goodspeed Dodds, who has written a wonderful book about the law of attraction called An Impossible Life: A Guide to Finally Living Your Dreams, has made some journal entries at her site about the difference between the two versions of The Secret. I agree with her comments:

Here's her first journal entry about The Secret:

The Secret Commentary

Here's her follow-up, which includes the officaly explanation from Esther Hicks about why her material was eventually edited out of the final version of The Secret:
