Rhonda Byrne and The Secret

Rhonda Byrne and The Secret

Continuing on showcasing the great personalities who write, practice, preach and promote Self-Help, New Thought, Motivational movements and sessions, I am taking up the next personality Rhonda Byrne who is more synonymous with "The Secret" or "The Law of Attraction" in this my next post. Like Louise L.Hay the Film "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne was instrumental in my looking at life in a totally new perspective. As already mentioned earlier while going through one of the toughest phases of my life this was the second Film, and Book or reference that was given to me which, not only brought about a fresh new outlook to life for me, but also lifted me on to a path of positive thinking rather than negative misery. 

Rhonda Byrne is an Australian television writer and producer, best known for her New Thought books The Secret and its sequel The Power.She has also written The Magic. Her latest book is "The Hero". Like all great personalities it is very difficult to cover all their greatness in one small post so I will only give a brief introduction of Rhonda Byrne and "The Secret" in this post and take up the topic in detail in my subsequent posts. 

Rhonda Byrne

Rhonda Byrne - (born 1945 Melbourne, Victoria, Australia) is an Australian television writer and producer, best known for her New Thought books The Secret (based on a film she produced of the same name) and its sequel The Power. She has also written The Magic., Her latest book is "The Hero"

In 2007 Byrne was featured in Time Magazine's list of 100 people who shape the world. She gained mainstream popularity and commercial success after appearing on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Her philosophy is that believing will allow you to achieve your wishes and dreams.

Byrne has also been a producer for Sensing Murder and has also worked on the Australian TV series World's Greatest Commercials and Marry Me. Byrne recently listed her home in Montecito, CA where she has lived since 2007.

The Secret Film
Rhonda Byrne began her journey with The Secret film, viewed by millions across the planet. She followed with The Secret book, a worldwide best seller available in 50 languages with over 20 million copies in print, by the spring of 2007, as well as more than 2 million DVDs. The Secret book and film have grossed $300 million.

Since its release in November 2006, The Secret book has remained on the New York Times bestseller list for 190 weeks and was recently named by USA Today as one of the top 20-bestselling books of the past 15 years.

To get to know more about "The Secret" as a Film and a book and also to take the best advantage of her series of other books you should visit her site at 

The Official Website for "The Secret" Movie is at -

You will also be able to read her complete Biography on the link below. 

You can take the best advantage of this site by accessing the section on the site which mentions "Living the Secret" which takes you through the whole journey of what "The Secret" actually is and how to apply it in your life, using the tools that are given to create a life of your dreams. It is a film that has to be seen to believed so I will leave it for you to watch the film. You can access the special channel for The Secret at - 

I have embedded the YouTube version of this Movie here below so you can watch it but it is best watched at home on the big screen as it overpowers you so much. 

The Secret, described as a self-help film,uses a documentary format to present the law of attraction. 

Teachers of the Law of Attraction: As is very nicely narrated in Wikipedia and I quote and display below....

"The film includes interviews with individuals self-described as professionals and authors in the fields of Quantum physics, psychology, metaphysics, coaching, theology, philosophy, finance, feng shui, medicine, and personal development, who are referred to as "secret teachers". Some of these individuals, on their Web sites, promote the film and their connection to it. A few of the individuals with only brief appearances do not specifically speak of the "law of attraction" in their interviews, so their support of the concepts is based on viewer assumption.

Individuals who focus on the law of attraction, who are interviewed in the film, and have later been featured on prominent American TV shows, are: John Assaraf, Rev. Michael Beckwith, John Demartini, Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, James Arthur Ray, Joe Vitale, Lisa Nichols, Marie Diamond, and John Gray. Other people involved in the film, who have spoken of their strong belief in the Law of Attraction include Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks (original edition only),Mike Dooley, Bob Doyle, David Schirmer, and Marci Shimoff. Others interviewed in the film, and who voice very similar views without actually using the phrase "law of attraction" include Lee Brower (Board Member of WorldVuer), Hale Dwoskin, Cathy Goodman, Morris E. Goodman, John Hagelin, Bill Harris, Ben Johnson,Loral Langemeier, Denis Waitley, Neale Donald Walsch, and Fred Alan Wolf." It will be easier for you all to relate with these personalities as I have dealt with them only by name and image in my earlier posts. 

I am sure you will enjoy the film and make best use of it. The best way to take advantage of the "Law of Attraction" and "The Secret" is to watch the movie and follow the site given above to the core. I am sure you will see the difference.

I am sure these series of Self-Help, New Thought informative articles will help you all take a new view of life and bring happiness and peace in your life.Wishing you all the best! 

Louise L. Hay - "The Closest thing to a living Saint"

Louise L. Hay - "The Closest thing to a living Saint"

It is really hard to describe this wonderful and soulful personality in Louise L.Hay, especially when she is endowed with so much. Motivational Author, Speaker, Soulful Teacher, Healer, Artist, Metaphysical Counselor, and the Founder of Hay House, she is a person to reckon with but loved, adored, respected, revered and as the Australian Media dubbed her "The closest to a Living Saint".
Through Louise’s healing techniques and positive philosophy, millions have learned to create more of what they want in their lives–more wellness in their bodies, minds, and spirits.
My tryst with Louise Hay and her powers of healing and motivational therapy using Affirmations came about a year and a half or two ago when, while going through one of the most traumatic phases in my life, I happened to watch her famous video "You can Heal Your Life" - which a friend had given me, saying "If this cannot change your life - Nothing can". Of course there were other motivational videos, audios, books and Pdf files too which were dumped upon me in an effort to get me out of my Abyss, but I can assure you that Louise Hay and her video literally caught me by the cuff of my collar and pulled me out of that dark abyss. I have no words to describe the feeling that I and my daughter went through after watching Louise Hay's video, but all I can say of today is if I am living and hale and hearty, raring to take on the world. this was one video which is to be credited for it. Will deal with my personal experience in another post, and talk a little more about this wonderful personality first.
Louise Hay comes across to anyone directly and literally as if out of the video or books that she writes or promotes. She gets you by the gut not only because of her powerful yet soft spoken yet convincing speech, but because she oozes love, compassion, care, forgiveness, gratitude, and a sense of togetherness with you even when you may only be watching her videos. The reason for this is her own personal life which she so rightly says on her website " This is a special place to share my journey, affirmations, and encourage you to create joy in your life" . Every bit so true!
There is so much to write about her which as I said earlier I will be dedicating a separate post for each of their wonderful qualities and incidents in life which I would personally like to share with you all, but suffice to say as she so strongly and rightly says she will take your hand and be with you all the way "From Struggle to Strength". All this comes across more strongly because as I quote from her own website - " Her own personal philosophy was forged from her tormented upbringing. Her childhood was unstable and impoverished, and her teen years were marked by abuse. Louise ran away from home and ended up in New York City, where she became a model and married a prosperous businessman. Although it appeared that her life had turned around, it was not until the marriage ended 14 years later that her healing really began."...It is not that it is only her philosophy that she speaks about but also put it into practice herself, that is why she can be so convincing in her interactions with you.
As is said about her "Louise was able to put her philosophies into practice when she was diagnosed with cancer. She considered the alternatives to surgery and drugs, and instead developed an intensive program of affirmations, visualization, nutritional cleansing, and psychotherapy. Within six months, she was completely healed of cancer."...
All this can be read, experienced and felt in her website at -     
As I said, there is so much to write about her. 
She is a Science of Mind Minister, and her many areas of study include Silva Mind Control, Loving Relationships, SCI, est, Rebirthing, Gestalt Synergy, The Advocate Experience, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. She is on a continuous pathway of growth, and shares her learning with joy. Her Best selling and motivational books are no exception, and could be counted as a blessing to be have in your library. From her best selling "You Can Heal Your Life" - which was published in 1984 reached the New York Times bestseller list and remained on it for 13 consecutive weeks. More than 50 million copies of You Can Heal Your Life have been sold throughout the world.I was indeed blessed to see the video version of this book, so it was more empowering. 

You can get the Paperback Version here...

A book that will truly change the way you look and life and change it!

This another of her great Books

Take your pick at 

As I said I could go on writing about this wonderful personality who has had such a big impact on my life, which I will surely do in my next few post but not before leaving you to watch her best Video which I am sure you will all love and like as I did, and hope that it will change your life as it did mine.The full version is not available on YouTube and I will try to post another version if available here. This is only a trailer.

You Can Heal Your Life - by Louise Hay - Movie ******

Louise Hay is always there to share her information at her various Social Media Platforms such as ....

Twitter - Louise Hay -

Twitter: Her Mexican link - 

Google+ - 


Her Website is so vibrant and powerful that you will get all you need from Affirmations, Events, Productions, interactions, and much more which can bring about a change in your life. 

I will conclude this post here though a bit sad that I could write more, but will be back with that in my next post. 

Until then "Live the Dream"!

Knowing The Self-Help Brigade

Knowing The Self-Help Brigade

As they always say "Wisdom comes from Learning from and sharing our Life's Experiences", and this is my small effort to do so. To cut it short for the present, it will suffice to say that it was a bad phase that I went through over the last 3 years or more that got me closer to this concept of self-help, motivation, gratitude, healing, meditation, which were to be my life giving tools. In the years that I went through a traumatic phase, it was these self-help techniques, sessions, videos, books and audios that gave me the strength to stay level headed and sane and to come out of the phase at least alive. Be it the "Law of Attraction" - "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne, or "You can Heal Yourself" - and other sessions of Louise L Hay , or working on a little bit of L. Ron Hubbard's Scientology principles they all benefited me a lot, and became the very reason for writing this blog. I will deal with each subject at length in my subsequent posts. 

When writing on such a vast topic as Self-Help, Motivation, Psychology, Counseling and related Genre of subject it is  very difficult to classify the personalities either by their profession, or education. Most of these personalities are high profile professionals, who have through the years of their individual professions, and life-giving sessions grown to a level where they are a part of the common benefit to all people. You will find them related to one group of programs or maybe taking part in some videos or training sessions of one Author or personality, and the other day they will be helping out some other cause. Some times you will find them promoting their own book or sessions, while you may find them enhancing the effect of some video by speaking in a part of that video. To all of them a common goal is spreading the message of peace, self-help, motivation, solace, and confidence to anyone who is in need of it. No one cause is greater or lesser than the other, as there is so much to do in this world. 

Be it Rhonda Byrne in her bestselling series of "The Secret" based on the 'Law of Attraction" or Louise L. Hay in her "You can Heal Your Life" series, or Bob Proctor in his motivational sessions, they all stand out as people of character, poise, strength which has come from within them not by reading books or watching videos and conducting these sessions, but because if you go through the Biographies of each one of them you will find that each of them has gone through the worst times and come out stronger;because some one like them had lent them a helping hand at a time when they were sinking. 

It would be difficult for me to classify these great personalities into sections by way of subject though for academic and reading purpose we can do so, but the end result of the work of all these great personalities is to bring peace, happiness, satisfaction, and self-confidence to all of those who relate with them or with their sessions. For some it may be a counseling session; while for others it may be a Science as we see in the case of Lafayette Ronald Hubbard, better known as L. Ron Hubbard and often referred to by his initials, LRH, who was an American author and the founder of the Church of Scientology which is treated as a Science. 

For all of them the end result was always the betterment of human life as a whole, be it physically, spiritually, mentally, or as a human being as a whole. In the same way as we cannot classify these sciences, or self help teaching or even the Laws of Attraction so to say, it will not be prudent to discuss or talk about each one of these personalities as a separate identity though I will be dealing with each of them in their own. Each of them has a story to tell, and these life shattering experience that they themselves have gone through have prompted them to pen down their experiences in the form of their Books each of which are Best Sellers in their own domain. 

This post was created only to identify some of these personalities who have been associated with a particular group only for the purpose of that campaign so to say and have identified with them for long. To make it easier for the readers who may have also gone through their videos and books I will be dealing with each of them in detail later but identifying them as a group of a particular campaign so you can relate with them easily. 

In my subsequent posts I will be dealing in detail about each of them covering their Biography, Books, Videos, Campaigns they conduct, and a lot more to do with their individual profession and work. Suffice to say this would be like a pictorial trailer of all these wonderful personalities who I will highlight and deal with individually in my subsequent posts. Please note that no one person has been listed in any specific order of importance but only as way to identify them in relation to this Blog and subject.

Rhonda Byrne is an Australian television writer and producer, best known for her New Thought books The Secret and its sequel The Power.

The Secret, described as a self-help film, uses a documentary format to present the law of attraction. As described in the film, the "Law of Attraction" hypothesis posits that feelings and thoughts can attract events, feelings, and experiences, from the workings of the cosmos to interactions among individuals in their physical, emotional, and professional affairs. The film also suggests that there has been a strong tendency by those in positions of power to keep this central principle hidden from the public.

Individuals who focus on the law of attraction, who are interviewed in the film, and have later been featured on prominent American TV shows, are: 

John Assaraf

Rev. Michael Beckwith

John Demartini

Bob Proctor


Jack Canfield

James Arthur Ray

Joe Vitale

Lisa Nichols

Marie Diamond

John Gray. 

Other people involved in the film, who have spoken of their strong belief in the Law of Attraction include 

Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks 

Mike Dooley

Bob Doyle

David Schirmer

Marci Shimoff

Others interviewed in the film, and who voice very similar views without actually using the phrase "Law of attraction" include:

Lee Brower

Hale Dwoskin

Cathy Goodman

Morris E. Goodman - "The Miracle Man"

John Hagelin

Bill Harris

Ben Johnson

Loral Langemeier

Denis Waitley

Neale Donald Walsch...and

Fred Alan Wolf.

This video had a very Big impact on my life and I will deal with this subject later in my other posts.

The Other Big Impact came from watching Louise L.Hay's film " You can Heal your Life" a video series I got to view, and also her book of the same name. This video had an even greater impact on my life as it was much closer to me and the problems which I had gone through. 

Louise L.Hay

Here too the individuals who focused on the subject and were prominent personalities in the video such as...

Cheryl Richardson

Dr. Mona Lisa Shultz

Dr. Christiane Northrup. MD.

Dr. Wayne Dyer

Jerry and Esther Hicks

Leon Nacson

Gregg Braden

Doreen Virtue

Dr. Elon D. Bomani 

and Gay Hendricks, have a great impact on the success of the film as the movement, as they each are an authority in their own subject, and profession, and the conviction with which they speak and counsel you is astounding! 

Not the least to mention Lafayette Ronald Hubbard, 

Lafayette Ronald Hubbard - better known as L. Ron Hubbard and often referred to by his initials, LRH, who was an American author and the founder of the Church of Scientology which is treated as a Science. I have personally started their online course in Scientology and it has helped me a lot. 

What I would like to highlight here is in this one post it would not be sufficient for me to mention all the people who are related with this movement so I had taken only the three main groups that had a very big impact on my own life, and I am sure they will also have a similar impact on the lives of others who would be reading, and following their movements, campaigns, reading their books, watching their videos and even listening to the audio files that almost each of them have presented on their individual Websites. That is the reason i only introduced them to you by name in this post and will deal with them individually in my subsequent posts.
