R- Rhonda Byrne ‘The Secret’ and ‘The Magic’ #AtoZChallenge

“There is a truth deep down inside of you that has been waiting for you to discover it and that truth is this: you deserve all good things life has to offer.” ~Rhonda Byrne

Rhonda Byrne’s ‘The Secret’ was one book I remember which had aroused lot of curiosity immediately after its launch. This self-help book is based on a universal Law of Attraction which is based on the premise that positive thinking can bring about life-changing results in all areas of our life like relationships, wealth, health, career, etc.

In her third book ‘The Magic’ Rhonda emphasises the power of gratitude in more detail. She takes the readers on a 28-day journey to apply this incredible knowledge in their daily lives in order to magically transform every aspect of their lives.

Rhonda’s books taught me two valuable practices which I have learnt to integrate in my life: the power of creative visualisation and the power of gratitude. Its amazing how when you are open to changing the frequency of your thoughts and beliefs, your perspective towards life is altered. The universe does start showing you what you wish to manifest. It was extremely enlightening to read the teachings from renowned people like Bob Procter, Lisa Nichols, Jack Canfield, Joe Vitale and many others.

When we want things in our life to change, we got to change our thoughts and habits!

Key Highlights:

“What you think about you bring about. Your whole life is a manifestation of the thoughts that go in your head.”

“Most of us have never allowed ourselves to want what we truly want, because we can’t see how it’s going to manifest.”

“You don’t need to know how it’s going to come about. The Universe will start to rearrange itself to make it happen for you.”

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

“Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.”

“That’s the thing with magic. You’ve got to know it’s still here, all around us, or it just stays invisible for you.”

“You deserve to be happy, you deserve to be joyful, you deserve to be celebrated. But in order to do that you must first madly fall in love with yourself. “ ~Lisa Nichols

A world-renowned motivational speaker, best-selling author and global personality, Lisa Nichols is a woman I enjoy listening to. For she has a way with the words and many ways to stir your heart. She was voted as the most impressive teacher from the movie ‘The Secret’.

From being a struggling single mom on public assistance to leading a multi-million dollar enterprise, her extra-ordinary personal story is an inspiration in itself. Her courage and determination to massively transform her life has filled many with the hope to bring about positive changes in their lives as well.

I’m not extraordinary. I’m simply an ordinary woman who chooses every day to make extra-ordinary decisions.

Lisa has appeared on The Today Show, Oprah, Steve Harvey show and many other acclaimed TV shows, making her a sought after media celebrity. She is the Founder CEO of ‘Motivating the Masses’ – America’s one of the only publicly traded personal and business development training programs.

Your greatest fear is not that you are going to die. Your biggest fear is that you are going to die before you let the world see who you really are.

Personally for me, Lisa made an impact when I heard her online through a few personal growth sessions. Her words are uplifting, her tone so encouraging and her intent – pure and warm. I look forward to reading her books beginning with ‘Abundance Now’.

Practicing gratitude is a magical attitude to live with

Practicing gratitude is a magical attitude to live with

“Gratitude can turn common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.” ~William Arthur Ward

My first blogpost in the new year – it is gratitude that comes to my mind. For everything that came into my life last year, feeling overwhelmed with people and things that I am blessed to have. Looking forward to the new year with a sense of humility and grace.

There have been innumerable moments of despair, like there is with everyone, when life seemed bleak and hopelessness crept in. As I kept seeking answers from the universe, I was drawn towards many self-help books that explained the mystical ways of the universe. Books that touched upon the various aspects of spirituality and the cosmos. One of the many books that had an impact on me was the iconic bestseller ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne. And one of the many practices it mentioned that touched upon me was the attitude of gratitude.

We are often habituated to look at all the negative things in our lives, focusing on our problems, the lack of something, anything that is missing, stuff we don’t have and our complaints.

Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty. – Christian Science Hymnal

I asked myself, how could I be grateful for what I have when I have lost everything I wanted? I asked myself, why should I say thank you to life when it has cheated on my kids and me? As I continued reading the powerful processes explained in ‘The Secret’, something inside of me stirred. I was willing, though reluctantly, to try the exercise of gratitude.

When we decide to change direction, acknowledge everything that we do have and be thankful for that, a significant shift in our energies takes place. When we appreciate the simpler pleasures of life, the universe opens up bigger opportunities of happiness. Gratitude works like an antidote to dissatisfaction, anxiety and fear. It becomes a shield protecting us from negativity in our lives. It changes our perspective towards life events and people. Gratitude leads us towards the divine light, peace and happiness.

Gratitude is a powerful process for shifting your energy and bringing more of what you want into your life. Be grateful for what you already have, and you will attract more good things. – The Secret

Maintaining a Gratitude Journal

Keeping a gratitude journal wherein we write the things everyday we are grateful for is a life-altering exercise. We do not realize that there is so much we take for granted – if we acknowledge all our blessings, our perception changes and something inside us shifts. Journaling was something I loved practicing so starting an exclusive gratitude journal was simple. What was difficult was recollecting the things I was grateful for.

There were days when I would be so angry and bitter, that at the end of the day I could feel thankful for nothing. That’s when I started feeling grateful for my life, my health, my limbs, my senses. The stuff I so took for granted like the roof above my head, the food I eat, the daily comforts and luxuries I enjoyed. And more importantly, all the people in my life who cared and loved me unconditionally. Just their presence and concern was a huge factor to be grateful for.

Practicing gratitude has changed the way I perceive life. It has helped the healing process immensely. Subconsciously I have attracted abundance in different areas of my life. It has had a positive impact on all my relationships. Even when I think I have little in life, I feel life has given me a lot. Every night, I make it a point to write down at least 5 things that I have felt thankful for during the day. It’s a daily chore that sets the tone for peaceful sleep and a positive start to the morning.


The simple ‘Thank you’ that we were taught as kids, little did we know then the immense power this phrase has. No matter what your life situation is, count your blessings and be grateful. The universe will fill your life with abundance and contentment.

On a closing note – ‘Thank you’ for visiting and reading this blogpost.
