'The Secret' To The Law Of Attraction? It's A Bunch Of B.S.

It's been seven years since the publication of the wildly popular self-help book 'The Secret'. The principle at the book's core—the Law of Attraction—still holds many under its Vulcan mind-meld grip. I can see why: Who wouldn't want to believe that all you have to do is think the right thoughts and the love of your dreams will find you? But key premises of the Law of Attraction can do you more harm than good in the search for love and partnership. Here's why.

Get Rich with Random Acts of Kindness

Lately, I have become aware of a movement that suggests our life is the way it is because we have attracted what is there. The “secret” says we are what we think. “Law of attraction” tells us we have to vibrate in the “vortex” to attract the good things.

Soulmates + Perfect Relationships

Relationships Are Reflections of U All relationships are based on "U" ... this is the "Universe" revolving around U and Us.  People are attracted to us based on what we are, how we appear, or what our vibration emanates.  This is "The Secret" Law of Attraction, or Universal Gravitation in action.

The Hell of How

I’ve been thinking about the process of manifesting what you want for the past few days. Specifically I’ve been thinking about how, for me, sometimes it seems to work and sometimes it doesn’t. And I’ve noticed that a key component to successful manifestation is becoming detached from how it will manifest. This seems counter-intuitive. After all, if you want something to happen, don’t you have to figure out how to make it happen?

Is Positive Thinking Sabotaging Your Love Life?

Do you believe that anything you want will be yours if you just upgrade your attitude? Do you think that you can attract money, happiness and love just by rearranging how you look at the world? Do you — like millions of people around the country — love Deepak Chopra, believe in The Secret, and think that the universe gives back to you exactly what you give it? If so, then we suggest you steer clear of Barbara Ehrenreich's new book, Bright-Sided: How The Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America. In it, she argues that our national obsession with positive thinking might actually be making us stupider, and perhaps worse, sadder.

The Hot Dog Theory Of Man

Besides confirmation that ABC's The Bachelor producers are indeed a bottom-feeding lot (more on this later), viewers of last night's two-hour premiere walked away with some fascinating new tidbits about love. For those who don't watch, the premise of this season's show is that Jason, a 32-year-old single dad from Seattle got down on one knee for Deanna Pappas, the most recent Bachelorette, but was ultimately dissed for a younger, "gnarly dude" snowboarder (with whom Pappas has since split). Now, with 3-year-old son Ty in tow, Jason's back on the hunt. Among the love lessons learned last night? The hot dog theory of men, thanks to Jillian, a Canadian contestant, and "vision boards" are not this Bachelor's thing. Cleavage and love poems are, however.
