It's sweeping the country and beyond. The Secret, a 90 minute movie/documentary featuring 25 teachers, authors, and philosophers, was created by Australian Rhonda Byrne. She says that if you follow its philosophy, you can create the life you wan... whether that means getting out of debt, finding a more fulfilling job or even falling in love.

Oprah even featured "The Secret" on not only one, but two of her recent episodes.

What exactly is "The Secret"?

Rhonda Byrne defines The Secret as the law of attraction, which is the principle that "like attracts like." Rhonda calls it "the most powerful law in the universe," and says it is working all the time. "What we do is we attract into our lives the things we want, and that is based on what we're thinking and feeling," Rhonda says. The principle explains that we create our own circumstances by the choices we make in life. And the choices we make are fueled by our thoughts... which means our thoughts are the most powerful things we have here on earth.

Many who have read or watched "The Secret" call it life changing.

The Secret is available as a book or DVD. To learn more go to:

    I have never heard about this book and movie before. I'll check it out. I probably haven't heard anything about it since I'm part of generation Z..

    Saw the movie years ago, and while it does have plenty of good common-sense advice, I think it goes a bit overboard in the visualize and you will receive it aspect.  On the whole I would recommend it though.

    I run across The Secret you tube video when I was searching for answers and solutions. I was a true skeptic at first and even tried the exercise in the video, I thought about somebody that had few chances of contacting me. And the next day the phone rang ! I missed the call because I was in such a shock. I called back and I asked why did the person call me. The answer was : I just had a sudden thought to call you and I did. So I started to believe. Little by little, in one year it completely changed my life ! Another city, another country, another continent! The Secret is really more like ...The solution !

    I read the book long ago. My bestie and I made vision boards and we still talk about some of the concepts it used. However, I'm still in a marginal relationship and unable or unwilling to bring my new self into fruition. I've seen the book laying around in a few areas ... recently at a resort spa even. Seems to be making a comeback. I've not seen the movie
