The Secret and Subconscious Blocks

Share Button

Like a lot of people, we appreciate the movie The Secret for its wisdom and how it helps to inspire people. But what if you are following all the tenants of The Secret and still are not reaching your goals?

We’ve witnessed a lot of realistic, seemingly “deserving” people follow the Secret’s principles and still not get what they desire.

One reason they may not be making great progress in reaching their goals is because it may not yet be time to reach them. It’s important to keep taking action and along the way, meditate on the “next best step.” If you still feel blocked, read on for some important information. Also, if you are fated to reach your goals, you will reach them.

Unfortunately, if you aren’t fated to reach a certain goal, you won’t have success.

Another consideration that is not fully explained in The Secret that can make a difference between success and failure is an accurate assessment of subconscious blocks that are sabotaging success.

The subconscious mind rules your life. It completely lacks reasoning power and stores all of the hidden core beliefs, misconceptions, fears, defenses, and biases formed mostly before age ten. The subconscious mind reacts just like a fearful child; it’s not rational or sensible like the conscious mind.

The challenge is that it’s not always easy to know what’s hidden in your unconscious mind under your conscious intent, no matter how much you meditate, express gratitude, or monitor your thoughts.

Although you may be consciously fearless, your subconscious mind may possess intense apprehension. Often, subconscious beliefs are at odds with conscious viewpoints. For example, even if you consciously desire a compatible love relationship with all of your heart, if your subconscious mind equates relationships with grief, or some other form of suffering, it will do everything in its power to generate conflict or keep you single.

As another example, the subconscious mind can influence someone enough to make them unattractive if they subconsciously equate being attractive with abuse. Or, someone who subconsciously, deeply resents rich people will subconsciously sabotage their efforts to acquire and keep wealth. It’s like a hidden, super-power part of your mind that doesn’t always act in your best (conscious) interests. 

Until you uncover, confront, and resolve unconscious issues, your subconscious mind will interfere with your life, often opposing your conscious desires and plans. Personal issues keep you from reaching your highest potential. Subconscious thinking must be aligned with conscious desires in order to reach your goals.

How do you find out about the depths of your subconscious? Graphology, or handwriting analysis is one of the most effective ways of uncovering subconscious fears and defenses. The U.S. Library of Congress categorizes it as a branch of psychology. It’s one of the quickest, most objective, most accurate, and least discriminatory forms of personality analysis in existence.

Graphology is so informative because it reveals subconscious character, the real personality, not just the persona and the one seen when a person is at his or her best. It’s been used by many Fortune 500 companies and select law enforcement agencies (including some of those at the Federal level) for decades.

Instead of taking subjective personality tests, trying to effectively monitor the submerged complexities of your subconscious yourself (good luck), or enduring months of sessions with a psychologist, you can get right to the heart of the matter through handwriting analysis.

A well-trained graphologist can give you a clear, extensive assessment of your subconscious blocks and hidden fears, but their services are not inexpensive. As another option, our Graphology Keys and Trait-Based Guide will help you gain a lot of priceless information on your own, for a fraction of the cost, simply by comparing your handwriting to these easy to understand, but comprehensive, self-help tools.

Graphology is the secret that will help you be even more successful with The Secret.

What The Secret Misses

Share Button

Many people have asked us what we think of The Secret, the wildly popular book and movie.

We offer our opinion below, along with additional information we feel is imperative to consider in tandem with the tenets of The Secret.

What we liked most about The Secret is that it’s a very inspiring collection of ancient truths, such as the importance of gratitude, forgiveness, letting go of the past, asking for what you want, believing you are worth it, and acceptance. Lots of great reminders!

What we disliked about The Secret is that the author says the following and implies the same throughout the movie and book: “With the knowledge from The Secret there is not anything any human cannot be, do or have…not a single thing. No limits whatsoever. It doesn’t matter where anybody is now–it doesn’t matter if they’re sleeping in a  park, if they’re totally broke, it doesn’t matter if they’re not well, it doesn’t matter if their relationships are a mess. It doesn’t matter where they are, when they gain this knowledge and when they apply and use The Secret in their life, their lives will totally change.”

We disagree. While we believe there is a law of attraction, we feel The Secret fails to include some very important related factors.

Our work and research since 1992 involving cyclical timing methods and past life regression entirely confirms that everyone has a predestined path in life and that you can only “attract” that which fits your personal fate.

We’ve said it many times over the years and we still feel it’s true: You cannot attract and maintain what you want, no matter what you do, unless it’s part of your karmic path, fate, and what you’ve earned from present and past life actions. Furthermore, there are many unwanted circumstances in people’s lives, which are not part of “getting what you want,” that are integral to spiritual growth.

The good news is that you have free will to make the most of your karma and fate. When you are aware of the general inclinations of your predestined path, you are better able to capitalize on your strengths, opportunities, and inborn skills, rather than waste time with goals that are not part of your plan. In other words, rather than feeling like a failure because you didn’t reach a goal that wasn’t meant to be, when you are in touch with yourself and your fate, you spend time and effort on goals that are more likely to be manifested.

We are advocates of many of the concepts in The Secret, are glad there is a growing awareness of the related philosophies and we’re excited to offer additional information that will help you be even more successful with your goals and dreams.
