Powerful   Processes


A lot of people feel stuck or imprisoned or confined by their 
current circumstances. Whatever your circumstances right 
now, that is only your current reality, and current reality will
 begin to change as a result of beginning to use The Secret 

Your current reality or your current life is a result of the thoughts 
you have been thinking. All of that will totally change as you begin 
to change your thoughts and your feelings.

 "That a man can change himself... and master his 
own destiny is the conclusion of every mind who
 is wide-awake to the power of right thought."  
                                 Christian D. Larson (1866-1954)

When you want to change your circumstances, you must
 first change your thinking. Every time you look inside
 your mail expecting to see a bill, guess what — it'll be 
there. Each day you go out dreading the bill! You're never 
expecting anything great. You're thinking debt, you're 
expecting debt. So debt must show up so you won't think
 you're crazy. And every day you confirm your thought: Is
 debt going to be there? Yes, debt's there. Is debt going to
 be there? Yes, debt's there. Is debt going to be there? Yes, 
debt's there. Wiry? Because you expected debt to be there.
 So it showed up, because the law of attraction is always 
being obedient to your thoughts. Do yourself a favor— 
expect a check!

 Expectation is a powerful attractive force, because it draws things
 to you. As Bob Proctor says, "Desire connects you with the thing
 desired and expectation draws it into your life." Expect the things
 you want and don't expect the things you don't want. What do
 you expect now? 


Most people look at their current state of affairs and they 
say, "This is who I am." That's not who you are. That's 
who you were. Let's say for instance that you don't 
have enough money in your bank account, or you don't 
have the relationship that you want, or your health and
 fitness aren't up to par. That's not who you are; that's the 
residual outcome of your past thoughts and actions. So 

                                                                                       Powerful Processes 73
 we're constantly living in this residual, if you will, of the 
thoughts and actions we've taken in the past. When you 
look at your current state of affairs and define yourself by
 that, then you doom yourself to have nothing more than
 the same in future.

 '"All that we are is a result of what we have thought."  
                     Buddha (563 BCE-483 BCE)

I would like to share a process with you that came from the great
 teacher Neville Goddard in a lecture he delivered in 1954, entitled
 "The Pruning Shears of Revision." This process has had a pro-
found effect on my life. Neville recommends at the end of every
 day, before you go to sleep, to think through the events of the
 day. If any events or moments did not go the way you wanted, 
replay them in your mind in a way that thrills you. As you re-
create those events in your mind exactly as you want, you are 
cleaning up your frequency from the day and you are emitting a
 new signal and frequency for tomorrow. You have intentionally
 created new pictures for your future. It is never too late to change 
the pictures.

The Powerful Process Of Gratitude 


What can you do right now to begin to turn your life 
around? The very first thing is to start making a list of
 things to be grateful for. This shifts your energy and starts to
 shift your thinking. Whereas before this exercise you might
 be focusing on what you don't have, your complaints, and 
your problems, you go in a different direction when you do
 this exercise. You start to be grateful for all the things that
 you feel good about.

 "If it is a new thought to you that gratitude 
brings your whole mind into closer harmony
 with the creative energies of the Universe,
 consider it well, and you will see that it is true.'
                    Wallace Wattles (1860-1911)


Gratitude is absolutely the way to bring more into 
your life. 

                                                                                          Powerful Processes 75

 Every man knows that when his wife is 
appreciating him for the little things that he does, what
 does he want to do? He wants to do more. It's always about
 appreciation. It pulls things in. It attracts support. 


Whatever we think about and thank about we bring about.


Gratitude has been such a powerful exercise for me. Every
 morning I get up and say "Thank you." Every morning, 
when my feet hit the floor, "Thank you." And then I start 
running through what I'm grateful for, as I'm brushing
 my teeth and doing the things I do in the morning. And I'm 
not just thinking about them and doing some rote routine.
 I'm putting it out there and I'm feeling the feelings of 

The day we filmed James Ray sharing his powerful exercise of
 gratitude is one I will never forget. From that day on, I made 
James's process my life. Every morning, I do not get out bed until
 I have felt the feelings of gratitude for this brand new day and all I
 am grateful for in my life. Then as I get out of bed, when one foot 
touches the ground I say, "Thank," and "you" as my second foot
 touches the ground. With each step I take on my way to the bath- 

                                                                                    Powerful Processes 76
room, I say "Thank you." I continue to say and feel "Thank you" as 
I am showering and getting ready. By the time I am ready for the 
day, I have said "Thank you" hundreds of times.

 As I do this, I am powerfully creating my day and all that it will 
contain. I am setting my frequency for the day and intentionally 
declaring the way I want my day to go, rather than stumbling out 
of bed and letting the day take control of me. There is no more 
powerful way to begin your day than this. You are the creator of
 your life, and so begin by intentionally creating your day! 

Gratitude was a fundamental part of the teachings of all the great
 avatars throughout history. In the book that changed my life, The
 Science of Getting Rich, written by Wallace Wattles in 1910, gratitude
 is its longest chapter. Every teacher featured in The Secret uses grat-
itude as part of his or her day. Most of them begin their day with
 thoughts and feelings of gratitude. 

Joe Sugarman, a wonderful man and successful entrepreneur,
 watched the film The Secret and contacted me. He told me his fa-
vorite part was the gratitude process, and that his use of gratitude
 had contributed to all he had achieved in his life. With all the success
 Joe has attracted to himself, he continues to use gratitude every day, 
even for the smallest things. When he gets a parking space he always
 says and feels, "Thank you." Joe knows the power of gratitude and
 all it has brought to him, and so gratitude is his way of life. 

With all that I have read and with all that I have experienced in my
 own life using The Secret, the power of gratitude stands above eve-

                                                                                          Powerful Processes 77
 rything else. If you only do one thing with the knowledge of The 
Secret use gratitude until it becomes your way of life.


As soon as you start to feel different about what you already
 have, you will start to attract more of the good things. More
 of the things you can he grateful for. You could look around 
and say, "Well, I don't have the car I want. I don't have the
 house I want. I don't have the spouse I want. I don't have the
 health I want" Whoah! Back up, back up! Those are all the 
things you don't want. Focus on what you already have that
 you're grateful for. And it might be that you have the eyes 
to read this. It might be the clothes that you have. Yes, you
 might prefer something else and you might get something
 else pretty soon, if you start feeling grateful for what you

other ways are kept in poverty by their lack of

It is impossible to bring more into your life if you are feeling un-
grateful about what you have. Why? Because the thoughts and
 feelings you emit as you feel ungrateful are all negative emotions. 
Whether it is jealousy, resentment, dissatisfaction, or feelings of
 "not enough" those feelings cannot bring you what you want.


                                                                                       Powerful Processes  78  
 They can only return to you more of what you do not want. Those 
negative emotions are blocking your own good coming to you. If 
you want a new car but you are not grateful for the car you have,
 that will be the dominant frequency you are sending out. 

Be grateful for what you have now. As you begin to think about all 
the things in your life you are grateful for, you will be amazed at 
the never-ending thoughts that come back to you of more things
 to be grateful for. You have to make a start, and then the law of at-
traction will receive those grateful thoughts and give you more just
 like them. You will have locked into the frequency of gratitude and
 all good things will be yours.

 "The daily practice of gratitude is one of the 
conduits by which your wealth will come to 
  Wallace Wattles 


 I think everybody goes through times when
 they say, "Things aren 't working right," or, 
"Things are going had." Once, when there were some
 things going on in my family, I found a rock, and I just sat
 holding it. I took this rock, I stuck it in my pocket, and I said,
 "Every time I touch this rock I'm going to think of something 

                                                                                        Powerful Processes 79
 that I'm grateful for." So every morning when I get up in the
 morning, I pick it up off the dresser, I put it in my pocket, and
 I go through the things that I'm grateful for. At night, what 
do I do? I empty my pocket, and there it is again.

 I've had some amazing experiences with this idea. A guy from
 South Africa saw me drop it. He asked, "What is that?" I 
explained it to him, and he started calling it a gratitude rock. 
Two weeks later I got an email from him, in South Africa.
 And he said, "My son is dying from a rare disease. It's a
 type of hepatitis. Would you send me three gratitude rocks?" 
They were just ordinary rocks I found off the street, so I said,
 "Sure." I had to make sure that the rocks were very special, so 
I went out to the stream, picked out the right rocks, and sent
 them off to him. 

Four or five months later I get an email from him. He said, 
"My son's better, he's doing terrific." And he said, "But you
 need to know something. We've sold over a thousand rocks at
 ten dollars apiece as gratitude rocks, and we've raised all this
 money for charity. Thank you very much." 

So it's very important to have an "attitude of gratitude." 

The great scientist Albert Einstein revolutionized the way we view 
time, space, and gravity. From his poor background and poor be-
ginnings, you would have thought it impossible for him to achieve
 all that he did. Einstein knew a great deal of The Secret, and he
 said, "Thank you" hundreds of times each day. He thanked all

                                                                                         Powerful Processes 80
 the great scientists who had preceded him for their contributions, 
which had enabled him to learn and achieve even more in his
 work, and eventually become one of the greatest scientists who 
has ever lived.

 One of the most powerful uses of gratitude can be incorporated in 
the Creative Process to turbo-charge what you want. As Bob Proc-
tor advised in the first step of the Creative Process, Ask, start by
 writing down what you want. "Begin each sentence with, I am so 
happy and grateful now that..." (and you fill in the rest). 

When you give thanks as though you have already received what 
you want, you are emitting a powerful signal to the Universe. That
 signal is saying that you have it already because you are feeling 
gratitude for it now. Each morning before you get out of bed, make
 it a habit to feel the feelings of gratitude in advance for the great day
 ahead, as though it is done.

 From the moment I discovered The Secret and formulated the vi-
sion to share this knowledge with the world, I gave thanks every
 day for the film The Secret, which would bring joy to the world. I
 had no idea how we would bring this knowledge to the screen, but 
trusted that we would attract the way. I stayed focused and held
 to the outcome. I felt deep feelings of gratitude in advance. As that
 became my state of being, the floodgates opened and all the magic
 flowed into our lives. For the magnificent team of The Secret, and 
for me, our deep, heartfelt feelings of gratitude continue to this
 day. We have become a team that resonates gratitude with every
 moment, and it has become our way of life.

The Powerful Process Of Visualization 

Visualization is a process that has been taught by all the great 
teachers and avatars throughout the centuries, as well as by all the
 great teachers living today. In Charles Haanel's book, The Master
 Key System, written in 1912, he gives twenty-four weekly exercises
 to master visualization. (More important, his complete Master Key
 System will also help you become the master of your thoughts.) 

The reason visualization is so powerful is because as you create 
pictures in your mind of seeing yourself with what it is you want, 
you are generating thoughts and feelings of having it now. Visu-
alization is simply powerfully focused thought in pictures, and it
 causes equally powerful feelings. When you are visualizing, you
 are emitting that powerful frequency out into the Universe. The 
law of attraction will take hold of that powerful signal and return
 those pictures back to you, just as you saw them in your mind.


I took the visualization process from the Apollo program,
 and instituted it during the 1980s and '90s into the Olympic
 program. It was called Visual Motor Rehearsal. 

When you visualize then you materialize. Here's an 
interesting thing about the mind: we took Olympic athletes 

                                                                                         Powerful Processes 82
 and had them run their event only in their mind, and then
 hooked them up to sophisticated biofeedback equipment. 
Incredibly, the same muscles fired in the same sequence when 
they were running the race in their mind as when they were
 running it on the track. How could this be? Because the mind 
can't distinguish whether you're really doing it or whether it's
 just a practice. If you've been there in the mind you'll go there
 in the body. 

Think about the inventors and their inventions: The Wright
 Brothers and the plane. George Eastman and film. Thomas
 Edison and the light bulb. Alexander Graham Bell and the tele-
phone. The only way anything has ever been invented or cre-
ated is because one person saw a picture in his mind. He saw it
 clearly, and by holding that picture of the end result in his mind,
 all the forces of the Universe brought his invention into the 
world, through him. 

These men knew The Secret. These were men who had utter faith
 in the invisible, and who knew the power within them to leverage
 the Universe and bring the invention into the visible. Their faith
 and their imagination have been the cause of the evolution of hu-
mankind, and we reap the benefits of their creative minds every
 single day. 

You may be thinking, "I do not have a mind like these great in-
ventors." You may be thinking, "They could imagine those things,
 but I can't." You could not be further from the truth, and as you 
continue on this great discovery of the knowledge of The Secret, 

                                                                                       Powerful Processes 83
 you will learn that you not only have the mind they had, but
 much more.


When you 're visualizing, token you 've got that picture 
playing out in your mind, always and only dwell upon the 
end result.

 Here's an example. Look at the back of your hands, right now.
 Really look at the back of your hands: the color of your skin, 
the freckles, the blood vessels, the rings, the fingernails. Take
 in all those details. Right before you close your eyes, see those 
hands, your fingers, wrapping around the steering wheel of
 your brand new car.


This is such a holographic experience—so real in this
 moment—that you don't even feel as if you need the car, 
because it feels like you have it already.

 Dr. Vitale's words brilliantly sum up the place you want to get 
yourself to when visualizing. When it feels like a jolt as you open 
your eyes in the physical world, your visualization became real. 
But that state, that plane, is the real. It is the field where everything 
is created, and the physical is just the result of the real held of all
 creation. That's why you won't feel as if you need it anymore, be-
cause you tuned in and felt the real field of creation through your 
visualization. In that field, you have everything now. When you 
feel that, you will know it.

                                                                                         Powerful Processes 84

It's the feeling that really creates the attraction, not just
 the picture or the thought. A lot of people think, "If I think 
positive thoughts, or if I visualize having what I want, that 
will be enough." But if you're doing that and still not feeling
 abundant, or feeling loving or joyful, then it doesn't create the 
power of the attraction.


You put yourself in the feeling place of really being in that 
car. Not "I wish I could get that car," or, "Some day I'll have
 that car," because that's a very definite feeling associated with 
that. It's not in the now. It's in the future. If you stay in that 
feeling, it will always be in the future.


Now that feeling and that inner seeing will begin to be an 
open doorway through which the power of the Universe will 
begin to express.

 "What this power is I cannot say. All know is that it exists."
                Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922)


Our job is not to figure out the how. The how will show up
 out of a commitment and belief in the what.

                                                                                        Powerful Processes 85

The "hows" are the domain of the Universe. It always knows 
the shortest, quickest, fastest, most harmonious way between
 you and your dream.


If you turn it over to the Universe, you will be surprised and
 dazzled by what is delivered to you. This is where magic and
 miracles happen.

 The teachers of The Secret are all aware of the elements you bring
 into play when you visualize. As you see the picture in your mind 
and feel it, you are bringing yourself to a place of believing you 
have it now. You are also implementing trust and faith in the Uni-
verse, because you are focusing on the end result and experiencing 
the feeling of that, without giving any attention whatsoever to
 "how" it will come about. Your picture in your mind is seeing it
 as done. Your feelings are seeing it as done. Your mind and your
 entire state of being are seeing it as already happened. That is the art 
of visualization. 


You want to do this virtually daily, but it should never
 be a chore. What's really important to the whole Secret is
 feeling good. You want to feel exhilarated by this whole
 process. You want to be high, happy, in tune, as much as

 Everyone has the power to visualize. Let me prove it to you with 
a picture of a kitchen. For this to work, first of all you have to get
 all thoughts of your kitchen out of your mind. Do not think of your
 kitchen. Totally clear your mind of pictures of your kitchen, with
 its cupboards, refrigerator, oven, tiles, and color scheme .. .

 You saw a picture of your kitchen in your mind, didn't you? Well,
 then you just visualized! 

"Everyone visualizes whether he knows it or
 not. Visualizing is the great secret of success.
                             Genevieve Behrend (1881-1960)

"Here's a tip about visualizing, which Dr. John Demartini shares in
 his Breakthrough Experience seminars. John said that if you create 
a static picture in your mind it can be difficult to hold that picture, 
so create lots of movement in your picture.

 To illustrate this, imagine your kitchen again, and this time imag-
ine yourself entering that kitchen, walking to the refrigerator and 
putting your hand on the door handle, opening the door, looking 
inside, and finding a cold bottle of water. Reach in and grab it. You
 can feel the coldness on your hand as you grasp the bottle. You 
have the bottle of water in one hand, and you use your other hand
 to close the refrigerator door. Now that you are visualizing your
 kitchen with detail and movement it's easier to see and hold the
 picture, isn't it?

The Powerful Process In Action


The only difference between people who live in this way, who
 live in the magic of life, and those who don't is that the people
 who live in the magic of life have habituated ways of being. 
They've made a habit of using the law of attraction, and magic
 happens with them wherever they go. Because they remember 
to use it. They use it all the time, not just as a one-time event.

 Here are two true stories that clearly demonstrate the powerful law
 of attraction and the immaculate matrix of the Universe in action. 

The first story is about a woman named Jeannie, who bought a 
DVD of The Secret and was watching it at least once a day so that 
she would absorb the message right into the cells of her body. She
 was particularly impressed with Bob Proctor, and she thought it
 would be wonderful to meet him.

One morning Jeannie collected her mail, and to her utter amaze-
ment the mailman had accidentally delivered Bob Proctor's mail

                                                                                        Powerful Processes 88
 to her address. What Jeannie didn't know is that Bob Proctor lived
 just four blocks away from her! Not only that, but Jeannie's house
number was the same number as Bob's. She immediately took
 the mail to deliver it to the correct address. Can you imagine her
 utter delight when the door opened and Bob Proctor was standing
before her? Bob is rarely at home as he travels all over the world
 teaching, but the matrix of the Universe knows only perfect timing.
 From Jeannie's thought of how wonderful it would be to meet Bob
Proctor, the law of attraction moved people, circumstances, and
events throughout the Universe so that it happened.

The second story involves a ten-year-old boy named Colin, who
 had seen and loved The Secret. Colin's family made a weeklong
visit to Disney World, and on their first day they experienced long
 lines at the park. So that night, just before Colin fell asleep, he
thought, "Tomorrow I'd love to go on all the big rides and never
 have to wait in line."

 The next morning, Colin and his family were at the gates of
Epcot Center as the park opened, and a Disney staff member ap-
proached and asked them if they would be Epcot's First Family of
the Day. As First Family they would be given VIP status, a special
escort by a staff member, and walk-on passes for every big ride in
Epcot. It was everything and more that Colin had wished for!

 Hundreds of families were waiting to enter Epcot that morning,
but Colin didn't have the slightest doubt as to why his family had
 been chosen First Family. He knew it was because he had used The

 Imagine discovering—at the age of ten—that the power to move
 worlds lies within you!

 "Nothing can prevent your picture from coming
 into concrete form except the same power which
 gave it birth—yourself." 
                                   Genevieve Behrend         


People hold that for a while; and they're really a champion
 at it. They say, "I'm fired up. I saw this program and I'm
 going to change my life." And yet results aren't showing. 
Beneath the surface it's just about ready to break through, but
 the person will look just at the surface results and say, "This 
stuff doesn 't work." And you know what? The Universe says,
 "Your wish is my command," and it disappears.

 When you allow a thought of doubt to enter your mind, the law
of attraction will soon line up one doubtful thought after another.
 The moment a thought of doubt comes, release it immediately.
Send that thought on its way. Replace it with "I know I am receiving
 now." And feel it.


Knowing the law of attraction, I wanted to really put it to
 use and to see what would happen. In 1995 I started to create 
something called a Vision Board, where I take something that

                                                           Powerful Processes 90
I want to achieve, or something that I want to attract, like
 a car or a watch or the soul mate of my dreams, and I put a
 picture of what I want up on this board. Every day I would 
sit in my office and I would look up at this board and I would 
start to visualize. I would really get into the state of having 
already acquired it.

 I was getting ready to move. We put all the furniture, all the 
boxes, into storage, and I made three different moves over a
 period of five years. And then I ended up in California and 
bought this house, renovated it for a year, and then had all 
the stuff brought from my farmer home five years earlier. One
 morning my son Keenan came into my office, and one of the
 boxes that was sealed for five years was right at the doorstep.
 He asked, "What's in the boxes, Daddy?" And I said, "Those
 are my Vision Boards/' He then asked, "What's a Vision 
Board?" I said, "Well, it's where I put alt my goals up. I cut
 them out and I put all my goals up as something that I want 
to achieve in my life." Of course at five and a half years old
 he didn't understand, and so I said, "Sweetheart, let me just 
show you, that'll be the easiest way to do it."

 I cut the box open, and on one Vision Board was a picture
 of a home that I was visualizing five years earlier. What was
 shocking was that we were living in that house. Not a house
 like it—I actually bought my dream home, renovated it, and 
didn't even know it. I looked at that house and I started to
 cry, because I was just blown away. Keenan asked, "Why are
 you crying?" "I finally understand how the law of attraction 

                                                           Powerful Processes 91
 works. I finally understand the power of visualization. I
 finally understand everything that I've read, everything that 
I've worked with my whole life, the way I've built companies.
 It worked for my home as well, and I bought our dream home
 and didn 't even know it."

 "Imagination is everything. It is the preview of
 life's coming attractions." 
                 Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

You can let your imagination go wild with a Vision Board, and
 place pictures of all the things you want, and pictures of how you
 want your life to be. Make sure you put the Vision Board in a place
where you see it and look at it every day as John Assaraf did. Feel
 the feelings of having those things now. As you receive, and feel
 gratitude for receiving, you can remove pictures and add new
 ones. This is a wonderful way to introduce children to the law of
attraction. I hope the creation of a Vision Board inspires parents
 and teachers worldwide.

One of the people on The Secret website Forum put a picture of
 The Secret DVD on his Vision Board. He had seen The Secret but
 didn't own his own copy. Two days after he created his Vision
 Board, I felt inspired to post a notice on The Secret Forum giving
 away DVDs to the first ten people who posted. He was one of the
 ten! He had received a copy of The Secret DVD within two days of
putting it on his Vision Board. Whether it is a DVD of The Secret or
 a house, the joy of creating and receiving is magnificent!

 Another powerful example of visualizing comes from my moth-
er's experience of buying a new house. Several people besides
my mother had put in offers for this particular house. My mother
decided to use The Secret to make that house hers. She sat down
and wrote her name and the new address of the house over and
 over. She continued doing this until it felt as though it was her ad-
dress. She then imagined placing all of her furniture in that new
 house. Within hours of doing these things, she received a phone
 call saying her offer had been accepted. She was so thrilled, but it
 didn't come as a surprise to her because she knew that house was
 hers. What a champion!


Decide what you want. Believe you can have it. Believe you
 deserve it and believe it's possible for you. And then close 
your eyes every day for several minutes, and visualize having 
what you already want, feeling the feelings of already having
 it. Come out of that and focus on what you're grateful for 
already, and really enjoy it. Then go into your day and release
 it to the Universe and trust that the Universe will figure out
 how to manifest it.

 way of being, not just a one-time event.

 events of the day. Any events or moments that were not what you 
wanted, replay them in your mind the way you wanted them to go.
