The Law of Attraction May 10, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Magick & Mystery, Mindfulness.

“Hey, BFF, if money were no object, what’s on your wish list?”

“There’s only one thing I want at the moment.”

“Oh, what’s that?”

“This . . . ”

“Well, we can certainly afford a new comb.  Buy one.”

“Easier said than done.  I’ve looked high and low, here and there, hither and yon . . . without finding a suitable replacement.”

“Maybe it’s time to resort to . . . The Secret.”

The Secret is a best-selling 2006 self-help book written by Rhonda Byrne, based on the earlier film of the same name. It is based on the law of attraction and claims that positive thinking can create life-changing results such as increased wealth, health, and happiness.

The book has sold over 21 million copies and been translated into 44 languages, but has nevertheless attracted a great deal of controversy, as well as being parodied in several TV programs.

Can positive thinking manifest a new comb for BFF?  We shall see.

Stay tuned.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Oh dear, The Secret. I don’t subscribe to that philosophy.

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

And I’d rather rely on the Law of Attraction than pray to an invisible deity in the sky . . . especially if all I want is a comb. 😀

Maggie - May 10, 2012

To each her own. 🙂

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

Yes. Exactly. 🙂

Three Well Beings - May 10, 2012

Now that is funny!

nrhatch - May 11, 2012

Life is better with laughter! 😆

2. suzicate - May 10, 2012

Tell BFF I had to buy an entire pack of odd combs just to get one just like that for the hubby!
I watched The Secret for the first time a few months ago.

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

We did that . . . and NONE of a dozen choices suited him. Too big. Too small. Too wide. Too narrow. Too flexible. Too stiff.

Perhaps he’s too particular? 😉

3. jannatwrites - May 10, 2012

It’s funny how we get attached to our stuff. Have you checked dollar stores or beauty supply stores? I’ve seen those black combs around but I just can’t remember where.

I hope he can find his comb before it loses all of it’s teeth 🙂

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

We’ve tried lots of stores . . . and lots of combs. A beauty supply place is next on the agenda.

4. Tammy - May 10, 2012

Manifest a shoe horn for me while you’re at it.

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

Isn’t it funny how the little things in life become so “time consuming.” 😉

5. spilledinkguy - May 10, 2012

They’re hard to come by these days! I’ve taken to cutting my hair ridiculously short to avoid the effort.

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

If BFF doesn’t find one soon . . . he’ll have to get a buzz cut! 😯

Another tooth from his comb fell out today.

6. Don Scrooby - May 10, 2012

Wow! With a comb like that, I’m not sure how we attract anything. Lol

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

His comb has lost so many teeth, it needs “dentures.” 😀

7. sufilight - May 10, 2012

HA! I have the book next to me. Started reading it again, in order to keep myself inspired. 🙂 I tell friends The Law of Attraction is always at work for better or for worse!

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

I know it has worked for me on occasion . . . drawing my attention in the right direction at the right time. Other days, like today, I feel I’m attracting ALL the WRONG things. 😦

8. klrs09 - May 10, 2012

If we all ask the universe. . . ? Love the Secret, by the way, has helped immensely in my constant striving to live a more positive, fruitful life.

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

I found that synchronicity often assisted me to get from THERE to HERE via a valuable shortcut . . . if I just kept eyes and ears open to what was being offered..

9. mypenandme - May 10, 2012

Is it an older comb? Have you tried eBay?

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

It’s ancient. And senile. It’s forgotten what “being a comb” is all about.

It never occurred to me to check eBay. Maybe we should. Thanks.

The Good Luck Duck - May 17, 2012

If you put your desires out into the (bloggy) universe, and the perfect comb arrives in the mail, that’s manifestation, right?

I want to read that book, but I’m afraid my materialist friends will mock me. Maybe I should watch the movie – I can do that in Secret.

It’s forgotten what “being a comb” is all about. HAHAHAHA!

BFF found one today . . . at Walmart. Of course. We never shop there, but desperate times call for desperate measures. BFF needed a full set of teeth! 😀

10. Booksphotographsandartwork - May 10, 2012

One would think that philosophy works after reading about the man who built the perfect house before he met his mate. Actually he was just a smart man and knew what he wanted in a woman therefore he knew where and how to find her.

Try a real old timey store in a little itty bitty run down town. I’ll bet that is where you find a comb like that. Then be sure to buy all that they have.

nrhatch - May 10, 2012

You’ve got a point, Linda. The Vermont Country Store in Weston has a website. I’m going to check there! 😀

11. Three Well Beings - May 10, 2012

I think previous generations (or my own when I was little) always had good combs and brushes…we had the Fuller Brush Man!

nrhatch - May 11, 2012

It seems that as the choice of size, style, and configuration has increased, that the quality has gone down, down, down.

BFF doesn’t like the flimsy nature of new combs he’s tried. But he doesn’t want something so rigid that it pokes him in the ass when he sits down. 😛

12. Perfecting Motherhood - May 10, 2012

Oh, I hope one of your neighbors reads your blog and delivers a new comb on your front door!

nrhatch - May 11, 2012

Thanks, Milka. We’re hoping to bump into a comb that’s “just right” for BFF’s persnickety nature. 😀

13. sweetdaysundertheoaks - May 11, 2012

Good Morning Nancy! I know very little about The Secret. I remember it being a big “thing” when it came out. I will have to read about it. I hope BFF finds a comb he likes. 🙂 I just use my fingers to get my hair in order and CH, well he has no need for a comb.

nrhatch - May 11, 2012

I’m on the fence about The Secret. I believe in a benevolent Universe that works with us (at least as often as it works “against” us) . . . but I’m not sure that sitting around the house visualizing the perfect comb is an effective use of time. 😀

14. kateshrewsday - May 11, 2012

I believe some of the most recent findings in nuclear physics back this up, Nancy….

nrhatch - May 11, 2012

If we visualize what we want to manifest in our lives, we keep our eyes and ears attuned to the prize we hope to attain. When relevant information appears on the horizon, we pay attention.

But there may be more to it than that. I definitely sense some intelligent design in the synchronicities and mysteries I’ve observed and experienced in life.

There is always a bit of magic in the air.

15. Andra Watkins - May 11, 2012

Oh, new combs………..it is next to impossible to find the exact one, isn’t it? Best of luck to BFF.

nrhatch - May 11, 2012

Guess what we’re wishing for today . . . a happy healthy kitty. Wonder if I can use The Secret to heal Tigger?

16. bluebee - May 12, 2012

Hahaha – positive thinking plus a little trip down to the shops, perhaps?

nrhatch - May 12, 2012

Right now, we’re going to use the power of positive thinking for TIGGER. BFF will just have to deal with his scraggly comb. 😀

17. Hudson Mohawk Press - May 12, 2012

“The Secret” exposed lots of people to the basic of the Law of Attraction but it downplayed the hard work that is needed to make things happen. If you don’t put your desires out into the world (that is, ask), then it is much more difficult (although not impossible) to receive, but thinking things into existence is not really how it works. Change is indeed possible if we put our mind to it. It is amazing what can happen we really set our mind to something and put in the hard work. I continue to be impressed by the power of the universal message of the “New Thought” teachers of the last 100 years, and the relevance of their ideas today. I always go back to William Walker Atkinson’s book “Thought Vibration or the Law of Attraction in the Thought World” when I need a reminder of the power of “mind” and an explanation of how the Law of Attraction REALLY works.

nrhatch - May 12, 2012

You’re absolutely right. What I find is that if my focus is on attaining “X” . . . I start to bump into information that will help me on that quest. But I still have to roll up my sleeves if I want a Ferrari to appear in the driveway.

18. eof737 - May 13, 2012

Let us know if it did and my suspicions are … if you search, you will find. 😉

nrhatch - May 13, 2012

No luck yet . . . but we haven’t been very focused on combs the past few days.

eof737 - May 13, 2012

OK 🙂
