The self-actualization phenomenon known as The Secret pivots on the time-honored new age notion of the Laws of Attraction: That is, think positively, and positive things will come to you. This film, originally broadcast over the Internet, has been enhanced and extended for this DVD edition; but it retains the essential elements that have captivated millions. Over the course of its 92 minutes, The Secret introduces a parade of "teachers" hailing from various fields, including psychology, metaphysics, quantum physics, theology, spirit channeling, and personal motivation. Familiar faces and thoughts include those of John Gray (Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus), Neale Donald Walsch (Conversations with God), and What the Bleep Do We Know? veteran Fred Alan Wolf. Like What the Bleep…?, this film mingles in among its talking heads vignettes underscoring its principles, although here the stories are varied, in contrast to the earlier film's single, Marlee Matlin-focused narrative. Produced and narrated by Australian television veteran Rhonda Byrne, The Secret's ultimate goal for viewers is, as Johnny Mercer put it, to "accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative," and "don't mess with Mr. In-Between." For many, that's an eye-opener.

When I found this I finally started my journey to a happier me. I was lost before in the routine of my terribly boring everyday life. All I wanted to do was sleep, to provide me with some sort of stimulation compared to the monotiny of the same ?!&% everyday! I was stuck in a big way and this is the door that I opened and stepped through and have not looked back. This is a wonderful starting point for those who are lost or stuck. I have a bunch of wonderful recommendations to watch and rad as well. Good Luck and God Bless!

It never occurred to me til a friend introduced me to this movie, and book that people just do not realize what a vicious negative spiral they can get themselves into. Rhonda's inspirational reaction to her discovery of "The law of attraction" was to share it with the world! Luckily my mother was a collector of old books, so I had access to these books as a child. I must admit though that it has been difficult at times for me to explain to others how I got "the part" or how "I won" that vacation, other than my retorting that "Anything is possible just believe!" Which means ENTERING contests instead of thinking "I'll never win" If you don't enter You will not! Rhonda has found a way of being politically correct by saying make your request to the universe, where I would say make your request to God, which as far as I'm concerned is one and the same. I am thrilled to finally have a tool to use to help people to open their eyes to certain facts, so I can continue to gently remind them we all need to reprogram ourselves from time to time if we find we are not happy. As the key is to "feel good," and if you hear your mind coming up with all the "Buts" those are the negatives that are holding you back! We are taught that things don't come easy. Why not? Again my motto! Anything is possible only believe! I have even given "The Secret" Calendars to people for Christmas. And I recommend seeing the movie on a regular basis, until your life becomes what you wish it, because I'm sure you'll get a new insight each time. And oh yes that means you CAN have a dream life so instead of flowing with the tides of life, sit and think of what that dream is. Dust those cobwebs out! Was there something you wanted to become when you were a child? Continued Education? Dream Job? Financial security? Another book to read is "The Power of Positive Thinking" by Norman Vincent Peale As he had to get a psychology degree to be "allowed" to write a book on positive thinking. So he also was inspired to share his discovered inspiration to the world. He was a pioneer writer, as today you don't need a psychology degree to write a book on positive thought!

"The Secret" was shared with me by my mother, who had discovered it only a few weeks prior, when I was approximately 10 days into sobriety from a Meth addiction. It helped me to stay focused on the success of my recovery and to this day continues to enrich my life. In the past 2+ years that I've been drug-free, I can't begin to count how many times I have watched this. I have shared it with friends and loved ones as well. And when I seem to "loose my focus", I just pop it into my dvd player and press play to become rejuvenated once again! Thank you to everyone who assisted with The Secret ... I have my life back because of you!

Great way to introduce people to the Law of Attraction and how it affects their lives.

Positive and powerful message. Athletes have used visualization as part of their training. Many Christians have loved Dr. Norman Vincent Peale's book The Power of Positive Thinking. The Secret takes it to the next level and makes it relevent to a wider audience and for today.

I live my life by this DVD, I listen to the audio when I'm doing my chores or just lying around. I love this DVD and the audio version is just as great. I purchased this for my niece, my boyfriend and I listen to it everyday. This has been one of the best things that has happened to me after having my three girls. I am a 42 year old, a cancer survivor, a proud, positive beautiful dominican woman. I recommend this DVD, Book and Audio CD to everyone..... I am so grateful for being introduced to this spectacular uplifting experience. I thank my friend for giving it to me..

This is a good video to keep for those times when you feel down or depressed. Not only does it lift your spirits, but it also inspires you to get out there and start doing something about the things you don't like about your life. If you like self help books or videos, then you will definitely enjoy this.

Much of what she describes is "common sense" but what is best about this book is the presentation. My answer to the Christian folks who seem to have such a problem with it, Don't read it, and Don't pretend you did, just so you can chime in about how awful it is, and how your Religion is so much better. For those of you that want to improve your lives, you owe it to yourself to check out this book, and the others by Rhonda Byrne, The Power, and The Magic.

wow! i've learned as much from reading these reviews and peoples' thoughts as i did from watching the secret. i'm cracking up though, at the responses, because all of you are proving the premise of the documentary/book. you've spoken! you've drawn your conclusions, taken a stand, and have invested your energy and focus - whether that be positive or negative, good or bad. AND YOU'RE RIGHT!! and your powerful brain will find you evidence everywhere to prove your position. thank you for bringing the tenets of the work to life so obviously to me. we each are the authors of our lives and i truly hope for the best from and for us all. (btw, as a reminder "In the beginning was the Word". that is the take home message i was reminded of after this dvd.). good on ya!!

If you want to watch cheesy historical re-enactments, goofy special effects of magical thoughts bursting out of poorly paid actors' heads, and gurus like Bob Proctor claiming that the law of attraction is like electricity because, I quote, "I don't know how it works. Do you? But that doesn't mean it isn't real", then by all means plunk down $25 for this. Rhonda Byrne will be more than happy to attract more of your money into her bank account.

I had an ex-roommate who was into this bull. However, neither Allah nor the universe he rules ares our personal genies nor should be. Often the creator will not give us what we want because what we want is wrong! WE might not know it, but the rest of the universe does. As for like attracting like, sometimes; but often opposites attract too. Also, some of this DVD is medically irresponsible; letting people think ANYTHING can be cured just with mind power. The point of life is not to get everything we want. I live in inner-city Philadelphia. Right now sneakers on telephone wires and stuffed animal monuments abound(people have been murdered) because somebody couldn't take no and accept not getting what they wanted. Allah doesn't need us, after all-it's us who need him. Stop worrying about what you WANT; and be grateful you have anything you NEED.

My life started to change when I was first spoken to about the secret by my mother Helen Ortiz. I heard her but didn't actually go out and rent or buy the Secret Book or Dvd like she recommended me to. I want to say about 2 yrs later I was at work and a very nice gentlemen, complete stranger I might add, said to me, " something about you is mysterious in good way, he said, "I can't point it out but its good, you must watch this movie/documentary the Secret, and immediately I pictured my mom telling me. Then again I didn't go out to buy it or seek it... Well a week later the customer bought it for me on Christmas then I watched and said to myself, "Wow The Secret found me!" ever since I have struggled here and there in my life. But today after being a hardcore drug attic, homeless, almost losing my life I never stopped trying and insisting on matching my emotions to what I want in life! I have it... its coming and continues to appear the way I vision MY LIFE! Believe in it. It is everything that you want to make you happy!

This is great to watch if you are in need of help in your life. It is an awesome documentary.

A large portion of this DVD is presented in an infomercial type format, while other parts can only be likened to watching bloopers of The Secret. About half way through watching this DVD I got up to reopen the case quite certain that there must have been two discs in the package and that I had incorrectly chosen the extra or "trailer" DVD....but when there proved to be just one disc I decided to return this DVD.....the packaging is misleading to say the least, and the DVD is more than disappointing.

This was a very inspiring movie to watch. It is life changing. In my opinion I see this as open door to reveal secrets about life and how to think of it in a more positive way. Everyone I know that has watched this has dramatically changed thier life.

Even if you don't believe in the particular way they are sharing this information. The information has been given to us through many different sayings throughout our life. "Laughter is the best medicine" (Positive) "Smile at yourself when you look in the mirror" (Positive). It only makes sense that if you think positive and keep a positive attitude life is going to feel better. No matter what is going on in your life, you have to keep fighting for yourself and keep yourself happy and take care of yourself. This book/DVD along with many other books similar to this help to remind you that. Sometimes you have to take little things from everything that helps you and be open to everything out there in the world. We are lucky that we have the opportunity to have certain people with the courage to speak and not care what others say. And it doesn't matter what Oprah, Britney Spears, Madonna or any other celebrity does, everyone takes what is supposed to come to them when it's time for them to accept it.

The secret to life is not in this"new" concept but it is an age od truth found in the original manuscript... The Bible. Now that is the secret to life and has the power to set you free to be all that you were created to be,hands down!!!!

I have watched the DVD "The Secret" several times. I have come to realize that intuitively, I have done these things. It is a wonderful experience to realize that these techniques have been confirmed on a scientific basis.Have an open mind and heart when watching this and take from it what "feels right" to you. Thinking positive can't hurt, so why not try these techniques.

"When the student is ready to learn the teacher will appear", Every thing that was on the DVD I was aware of but but life has taught me that that we must all have positive repetion.We are exposed to negative , negative every day so we have to make a concious effort to offset it
