Rhonda Byrne is a criminal profiting on the deep unhappiness of human beings by falsely presenting herself as an expert and selling bogus solutions to the naive and desperate. She should be in jail serving a prison sentence, not having her book acclaimed on the Oprah show. Oprah should be ashamed of herself for promoting this garbage to her mostly female audience, of which many stupidly look to her as a role model because she's rich and famous. I feel that she had a moral duty to protect those women who followed her and not lead them astray. I think that the entire thing reflects badly on her as a person.

Oprah did'nt make HER billions through following the concepts of the "Secret" she made her money through tv, being a newscaster then, movies, books, more tv shows, investments, movies etc ie A C T I O N!!!!!

How are any other "self-help gurus" any different?? Tony Robbins does the same thing.

+William Ogden But have you tried it? Simply letting go of strict beliefs and transitioning gradually?

How is it a scam? Rhonda Byrne seems to not fully understand the secret, yet she explains it in the most simplistic way. The people profiting off the law of attraction alone is the real scam because they don't understand it. The law is not about the ends to meet your needs. It simply will never work that way and it is no quick fix solution. The law is a spiritual one which says light attracts light and dark attracts dark. This is too simplistic and it of course does not work this way. The truth is there is only one path to salvation and that is through divine love. You have to commit your very being to love. Only, to do so to get what you want will never work. Your intentions need to be pure. The law is about purity of thought and of intent.

This has been existing 3000 years ago.now you want the truth you want to put your words into action then go and check out for yourself.go to hamalya mountain then talk the talk.look at story of Buddha .son of a king ,has more money and luxurious than I know.6 years to get enlighten and left everything behind for that vibration.he manifest all kinds of things just by vibration.people will only only learn when show them not by words.ignorance will kill the world.

The law of attraction obviously works. If you are happy and smiling when walking by a crowd of people, people are going to react to you much better. Its reciprocation. There doesnt have to be some ethereal bs. You smile at the world, the world smiles back. Fuckn think its a scam haaha. So retarded

Not everyone wants a super nice car or to be rich.the law of attraction is all about finding out what it is that you truly want and it will enovoke a postive emotion,which then attract experiences and situations that will lead u closer to what it is that u want. When we are attuned with who we our as an individual's you come to find out we all have different desires, some maybe the same but not all.
If the law of attraction was about what you say it is, it would have been a completely dead idea that nobody would talk about. The only reason why the law of attraction has any publicity at all, is because it exploits humans imagination. The whole crap about the law of attraction is thinking/visualizing what you want and it will happen. Most people will then use it to visualize things based on selfishness, meanwhile the self-help movement gurus laugh all their way to the bank. You don't need some "law" to figure out what you want. All you need is to: - write down what you want - why you want it - how realistic is it to achieve want you want - what you need to look for - what actions to take When you know what you want and you know it is realistic to achieve it, you will start too look out for things and maybe even put yourself out there for others to find you. When you do these things, you will find or get opportunities naturally, which you then act upon. The law of attraction gurus have simply taken a natural process and made it into science fiction so they can sell more of their shit. Nobody would buy their shit if these gurus would say what I say because what I say requires you to make effort.

You're being rather hard on Rhonda. She hasn't held a gun to anybody's head. She's just been sharing a really good trick that can get you more of what you need.
Wave Wavehorse (2 months ago)
Sorry but I must totally disagree. I've studied these principals and it's made me get all the things I wanted and a perfect life, all with taking NO action whatsoever. In fact, the less I did, the more good stuff turned up for me!! If there's something you've been wanting or craving, and it still hasn't happened yet, ...you need to examine your thinking, and discover NEw ways of THINKING and as soon as you do, you'll see a positive change in your results about that thing. If you've waited longer than a week for ANY thing you want to have, ...it's too long. You can HAVE! It!!!!!!!:):):):):):):):):):

I seriously cant understand how people can believe "just" thinking it will make it happen...i read the book before watching this...and when i initially read it i did realise "action" was needed too as well..im quite dumbfounded that pple actually just sitting at home willale things happen
Right! Its funny, you know how people who fail at their chosen career become teachers? All these get rich gurus got rich through teaching others to get rich haha. They have no concept of the real world. Scammers. I used to believe this crap and was going to be rich teaching it but found out it was lies and abandoned it.

This Secret Law of Attraction perfectly worked for Rhonda Byrne, who successfully attracted few bucks out of her readers pockets... and the fame of this book, trumpeted forth by a clique of admiring simplest ones, the resounding echo of empty heads.. what a miserable bunch of wretches who believe they can achieve success by just projecting an image of it..

Chandrakant Mahapatra (10 months ago)
I first watched the movie as a wide-eyed 12-year-old that was looking for answers and comfort. As a kid that was being bullied to death in school, 'The Secret', at first, seemed like the perfect solution. However, it's the biggest lie I was ever told. Applying the Law of Attraction brought me years of anxiety, disillusionment, and confusion. The movie and the books instilled the perception in me that if only I could visualize, imagine and believe hard enough, I'd become a famous pop star or a business tycoon.The book preys on the credulity of millions of people seeking material success and recognition and is premised on severely misguided and dangerous notions of what constitutes happiness, how the universe functions and what ultimately is the meaning of life. The Universe works largely based on happestance, luck, and a multiplicity of other factors that determine the destinies of people which no amount of visualization can change. Ultimately, when I sacrificed so much for my so-called wildly impractical dreams, hoping that the Secret would work for me, I realized how deeply delusional I had been all these years because of silly ideas about life propounded by a charlatan.

This is exactly what I was lead to believe by Esther hicks.. Until I actually stopped listening to her and read the bible myself! Friend, I promise you, being an ex-fan of Esther hicks, that she has totally deceived you. Jesus is completely different. Yes... Gandhi and Buddha may be like Esther.. But definitely not Jesus. Jesus warned people so many times throughout the bible about people like Esther hicks. The spirit that speaks through her is a demon.. They can come across as peaceful and loving. thats how they win you over. And it wants nothing more than to distract you from the TRUTH. It has you under its spell and its having a field day. Jesus is God. He loves and cares about you so much, doesn't matter who you are or what you have done. Please seek him. Ask Jesus to show you the truth. PLEASE READ THIS BOOK: DEATH OF A GURU. It totally shook me back to reality. Written by an ex hindu pundit who realised everything he was taught, all the meditation, the spirits etc, was wrong! God bless you. Please trust me as someone who knows exactly how it feels and used to defend Esther, bob proctor, the secret EVERYTHING! God bless you x

Everyone has ther own beliefs. The law of attraction is real. I've hit the lottery by using the law of attraction. I'm completely healthy now from using the law of attraction. So, rather u believe it or not, doesn't matter to me but u are cutting yourself short from being the creator of your reality. by the way, the law of attraction existed way before she wrote the book. its called the secret', because many doesn't know about it.  peace always

الإنجليزية In my opinion, there is a truth in the teachings of the Law of Attraction, for example: we have to be happy in our present so that we can achieve our goals and this is true that unhappy people has no inner motivation and power to go forward in there life. Secondly, our focus must be related to what we want to accomplish in our lives. It is logical,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, but do we attract things with our thoughts and our vibrations? I'm not sure and I do not know
SuperFancy Bear (1 year ago)
Evidently ignoramuses and imbeciles are willing to believe anything -- including a "movie" overflowing with logical fallacies, emotional appeal, confirmation bias, fraud, unsound arguments, and outright lies. Why wasn't it a HUGE news story that so many of the "gurus" in THE SECRET ended up suing each other out of greed and bruised egos? Not very "attractive" now is it according to the law of attraction (itself a logical fallacy). The gurus are not experts in anything except dog and pony shows, hyperbole, and copywriting (lies) and selling garbage from the platform to an audience of desperate, greedy, idiots.

Thank you for exposing this scam. This scam has also entered into a lot of Christian churches, known as the Word of Faith movement aka prosperity Gospel. I don't consider Christianity itself to be a scam. But many have made a scam out of Christianity. And the church has been given a bad name because of it.

Honestly, I wouldn't even bother to make a video about The Secret. Some people may have actually applied the principles of the book (and other similar books) and achieved solid success in their lives. The vast majority did not, I will grant you that. I bet you're familiar with Pareto's Principle. People are just generally lazy and don't take action. We can't blame any book for that.

Lena Bean well done for getting through you tuff times its a dark road, when we are in these times we are very sensitive to who we are and how hard things get but then we are better we become numb to ourselves and dont use universal laws- not just attraction but all of them- and walk around with our eyes closed and held back by programmed self beliefs. I use these practices in my everyday life . I hear you on capitalism but its not just for that and that frustrates me why all these preaches use profit as the main goal. Universal laws aid my family my friends through my success in myself working with these laws, internal wealth that is far more important to me than my bank balance money is subsidiary of success its not in the for front of my mind. I also suffered and still time to time battle the big D but with the set of skills I have learnt I can use this to my advantage. The universal is available for all of us, it will never be proven nor will everybody use it, but it doesn't mean its not there and it doesnt start wars and cause propaganda and works for me.
Lena Bean (2 years ago)
Richie Lambert positive psychology works wonders. I even listened to a lot of the law of attraction stuff back when I was depressed, and it helped by giving me an optimistic outlook on life. However, it is not literally true. Really, the law of attraction is just he same materialistic, capitalist, consumerist, and even social Darwinist values that "spiritual" people claim to be against.
S W (2 years ago)
This snake oil book is no different from any of the others written on the fictional subject of the law of attraction. What gullible people need to realize before they buy this nonsense is " It doesn't matter how many of these books they read, if they don't have a real life plan then nothing is going to happen anyway.".

You're assuming that everybody wants to be a billionnaire. The Secret is much like anything else, take what you need - leave the rest. The Secret has not cost me a penny, I was infact practising it before I knew it was a thing - it's more about setting goals for yourself. Once you have set those goals you are more motivated to aim for those goals. Positive mental attitude/faith...whatever you want to call it. As long as you're taking positive steps in your life and you're happy with where you're heading, does it matter?

Orlando (2 years ago)
Your views and opinions are quite legitimate, for you but doesn't mean that it's other people's truth. There are quite a few people in history that were labeled as scam including Jesus Christ himself. The Secret is not my favorite book but it's still a good book and what's highlight in that book is nothing new. Have you ever listen to Earl Nightingale? read James Allen's As a Man Thinketh or Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich? Maybe I misunderstood The Secret but it's written nowhere in the book that you don't need to do anything but think positive. Even you said it yourself, have an idea (Think) and act upon it by attracting the people and situations you need. That's what the law after attraction is all about. There is no coincidence in life.

Hi Ethan great video .. Just a question here, how would you explain Oprah's belief in the law of attraction & the Secret. Oprah doesn't need our money she already has enough but she came on Larry King & talked about her belief in the law of attraction and so did other successful people like Jim Carey & Will Smith.

Ethan Vanderbuilt (2 years ago)
+fugly75 In my opinion, it is the same as the many unfounded religious beliefs that many celebrates have. Many Scientologists are successful actors. Does that make Scientology true and the key to success? In my opinion, it does not. Doing the work is what makes you a success.
guyoflife (2 years ago)
The babies born with birth defects could be said take on the negative vibrations of their mothers and people around her. The law of attraction is based on the beliefs you hold and action. Because action is another step in the process. You create your reality and then it reinforces the belief and so on. Try it. Allow your mind to settle and center and neutralize your focus and transform your beliefs and see what happens.
Ethan Vanderbuilt (2 years ago)

Here's a question for Esther "Abraham" Hicks: She gives seminars about the "Law of Attraction" on Cruise Ships. The Average voyage of a Cruise Ship dumps about 21,000 gallons of sewage and garbage into the ocean per trip. This means that she is contributing to the pollution of our oceans. How can this be justified by the Law of Attraction ?? These Cruises are literally causing the oceans to Attract Garbage into them at an unnatural rate !!! I would like to know why Abraham does not make better choices for choosing a venue to preach about the Law of Attraction.

I didnt say LOA is the same with the bible I said maybe they got something out from the bible and developed it for some unknnown purpose thats why there are some principles that are pretty much the same...if its true or not bible is still the best resource in the world for me so dont get me wrong.
Daniel Budd (1 year ago)
+Amber Spirit Law of Attraction has nothing to do with the Bible. They are two different things. But prosperity preachers; like Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, and Joel Osteen; are teaching law of attraction instead of the true Gospel. But people get deceived and assume that they're preaching from the word of God. But the things that they teach don't line up with the Bible. It's like a repackaged version of The Secret. Law of Attraction is the same thing as "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne. And Rhonda Byrne is a false prophet. And Benny Hinn and Kenneth Copeland are false prophets.
Amber Spirit (1 year ago)
lol you all misunderstood me....what is altered state? its just a focus not being disturbed its not delta or theta I diddnt mean that. You clearly are judging me already ike an evil possessed bro....Just bcoz I said this doesnt mean I believe it LOA. Note that true LOA is the word of God you do as it says then you life is good full of abundance not neccessarily earlthy abundance, get my point. I am just reffering to what the orther guy said that LOA is somewhat like the bible but it doesnt mean LOA is bible or it is something true to believe into.
Daniel Budd (1 year ago)
+Amber Spirit The reason why you can't trust your heart is because it is wicked. You need to rooted and grounded in God's word aka the Bible. But instead, you are giving heed to seducing spirits. Those seducing spirits are going to cause you to spend eternity in Hell, unless you repent and turn away from them before it's too late.
Boneguard Steel (1 year ago)
+Amber Spirit​​ God never asked us to get ourselves into altered states... Isaiah 1:18 says... Come let us reason together... God does not want to stop us from thinking... God wants to commune with us, communicate with us, like we communicate with each other. Jesus said that the work of God is like the wind... No man can know scientifically how God works... Jesus said don't pray like the heathens do... Law of Attraction recommends exactly that. It also makes God impersonal... And it denies the sacrifice of Jesus. It is very dangerous... Our feet must be rooted in the Word of God... The Bible says that the heart is deceitful above all things... How then can we trust it? Law of Attraction says trust your heart.

I ask you, whoever read this comment to try to understand with an open and imaginative mind. all the questions you have will be answered. what Rhonda said is only a part of some really big equation. obviously at her "stage" it wont be possible to comprehend all. but just beacuse she can't explain it all doesn't mean she is wrong entirely. all those questions about babies being born deformed, or animals being tortured will be answered. like all scientific research you need to keep on looking. I hope some day you will be amazed. love you

i thought the secret was written by that guy who killed people in a desert sweatlodge ceremony.
UpMyPSI (2 years ago)
So much about this "movement" disturbs me, yet it's possible to experiment with some of the ideas and get results! Whoa, now what? What if LoA is just a souped up version of Creative Visualization (because people get hung up on the word "visualize"), for example. I'm just encouraging people to think here, to question where this information originates. Yes, the mind is powerful, because we have an Imagination, and the ability to imagine. That is the foundation of all these systems no matter what they tell you.

And that idiot O. Winfrey promoted her and her book didn't she? Kinda like that fraud who wrote the book "A Million Little Pieces" or something like that.
The Secret leaves out the important factor that you must take action. It's not just asking for something and foolishly believing it will come.
ToomuchworktorateApp Smh (5 months ago)
Also on another note the only way it works is you have to believe beyond a shadow of doubt you can have whatever you want. And most ppl will never get to that part. Its actually easier to believe in small achievements and build your way up
ToomuchworktorateApp Smh (5 months ago)
Exactly. The true secret is that after you master positive thinking..... you also have to take action quickly when certain opportunities come. Also everyone does not want the same things.... so to assume that theres not enough to go around would mean you have the assumption that the same things make everyone happy.
Chris Baybay (1 year ago)
Its good to take action when needed. But i have effortlessly attracted alot of things. Alot of those things were for free. Law of attraction gives you what you think, feel and compensate for. And all the law of attraction is, is running into the correct people that your on the same feelings with for great opportunities and whatever your thinking about. Of course, You must do your work to get where you need to be to provide value, then you attract money. But thoughts do attract us to things and people. It works. But there are so many people who are lazy and will never believe something just because they are stuck in the "real world" and will never do anything exciting with their lives. The "real world isnt that the law of attraction" doesnt work, the real world is you either make things work for you or you dont. Havent you ran into old friends? A phone is ringing and for some reason you know who it is? You just know some things will happen and you fall perfectly into those circumstance. Whats the mystery? Your creating what you will do in situations that you run into. You can change it by focusing on different outcomes. People do this all of the time right in front of you. How are any of these very normal things, that absolutely everyone has experienced at one point or another, hocus pocus? The evidense is there. Just listen to a rich man talk about crazy business deals that make him richer. Thoughts. become. Things.

+Romy Karlen how much have you made? Where did the checks come from. Give examples
Romy Karlen (2 years ago)
+Strabbs12345 Right and hey doesn’t the secret say if we complain and be negative of others it will come back. The Law of attraction is mirroring back to you what you feel and think. Would you stand on front of a mirror and say I am not there, the universe just gives you back what you say more as you feel It's a frequency. But don't worry they are just did not understand LOA yet. Don't get angry at them because they waste their words on negative and even agree. The secret said if you agree on others negative than you agree to them and the Universe gives you back what you send out. I study the Law of attraction long enough. They just don't know how to apply, it's not what you get it's how you react. If a wish don't come trough it doesn't mean it will not. Einstein ones said does that don't believe in Magic will never see it I gotten unexpected checks in the mail things always worked out and I keep believing in good thing coming Go to the http://www.thesecret.tv/ read the stories Yes you have to take actions sometimes it's required to talk action Just let him talk and let him be doing his stuff I don't have to judge him he is just what he believes Okay be happy and keep up you believes Good Job!

Dude, you rock. I too have made a video for my YouTube channel on this subject, which I am in the process of editing right now. I'm a lifestyle consultant with a background in psychology and philosophy. I use a number of different resources and healing modalities to help people to accomplish their goals (no, that's not an ad for what I do--its context) and not only am I losing friends and co-workers in my field to this bunk and hokum, but I am helping countless, COUNTLESS clients who've hit rock bottom after the high of living this horrid LoA pyramid scheme cult of the individual lifestyle. These people are truly suffering. I'm helping many more people who've been "let go with love" by their LoA friends and family because their cancer or their talk about their day to day lives or any number of other things have made them a source of "negative energy" according to their LoA friends and family (hmm...sounds a lot like Scientology's concept of PTS's or potential trouble sources--i.e. someone who might tell their scientologist friend or family member, hey buddy, this is bullsh*t--what a scarily familiar concept). It's a horrible, horrible lifestyle which leads to the loss of empathy, the potential development of personality disorders like sociopathy and narcissism and at the very least leads to tendencies toward these severe personality issues and which can and does ruin relationships, finances and lives. Thank you so much for adding to the growing number of rational, logical people aiming to debunk this dangerous nonsense!

I partially agree with you, there is something incredibly dodgy about those teachers, I was a follower of Abraham Hicks for years until I realized anyone could claim they channel from above and it seems like they are always trying to promote/push a product a CD, a Book, a Tour. It seems those at the top are the only millionaires, similar to Christianity prosperity pastors, it's very dodgy to me.
Daniel Budd (1 year ago)
iTzEbz Christianity itself is not a scam, but the "prosperity preachers" are actually false prophets who secretly invaded the church and brought in damnable heresies. And these false prophets (Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Joyce Meyer, and Creflo Dollar; to name a few) have given Christianity a bad reputation. And many have permanently turned away from the faith because of it.

Well, the funny thing about cruises is that the average cruise ship dumps about 21,000 gallons of sewage and garbage into the ocean per trip !!! I would love to know how Abraham justifies this with the Law of Attraction.

+UpMyPSI I understand, I feel that your subconscious are those thoughts that whisper in your mind telling you that you can't do something, or that you aren't good enough... That riches will never happen to you. Just my opinion, once I was able to silence those types of thoughts. It's like the world has opened up to me. I'm not rich but I'm certainly on my way to what I think wealth and success is.

LOA = wishful thinking and a mind virus. It's a technique old as time itself,I first encountered this in religion where it is called praying. This mind virus will damage your brain to the point of no return. Be smart and try to find your own way in the world or be dumb and just accept what others tell you what to do.It's a mind virus that changes the pathways in your brain.Very dangerous stuff,just ignore it,be skeptical.

Ron Morrow (3 years ago)
So as a man thinks, so he is. EVERYTHING in this world started out with thought. Like attracts like. Opposites repel. It is that simple. For those who are naturally pessimistic and negative the law of attraction will repel you. For those who are hopeful and humble the law of attraction will motivate you. Some people just love being negative. They think that reality is the best way of life. I personally believe in creating my own reality.
Ethan Vanderbuilt (3 years ago)
+Ron Morrow With even the slightest bit of learning you will find out that people do not understand the world around them and have spent all recorded time trying to do so.  Fairy tales like this are one method that people use to deal with this reality.  In this case, the fairy tale is used to scam people out of lots of money.

I followed it in my early teens, dropped it later in my teens, picked it up again in 2010 and dropped it in 2013, for the LAST time. I saw, with my own eyes how the concept makes some people really judgemental and victim-blaming on a site called PowerfulIntentions.org, although there were nice ppl there, there were a lot of creeps and holier than thou folk...I even ran into a pervert there... I would encourage anyone to STAY away from that site as it's like a CULT. In general, LOA did not do wonders for my self-esteem...I'd like it to fade away into obscurity...
Orlokk Noxx (3 years ago)
It's a movement that will make you very self-centred if you follow it. There is a philosophical concept called solipsism. It means that the only thing that a person can know for certain is their own perception of reality. Everything else is an illusion. So to use an example - only I am real and everything else is either fake or at least not as real as me. LOA followers would be considered solipsists because they only affirm themselves as being the only thing that really exists.

The sad thing is that if someone does start thinking positively they might associate everything good that happens to this 'law of attraction'.  Positive thinking can get someone what they want but that is only because instead of telling themselves it is impossible and not trying they actually try and sometimes succeed.  Thinking positively just doesn't manifest money but whoever believes the law of attraction might think it does initially and by the time they find out that isn't the case they have shelled out a crap ton of money for seminars and such.
