Review: “Secret the Power” by Rhonda Byrne

the power post 5.2.14

In 2012, my cubicle neighbor at work and good friend Valerie dropped “Secret the Power” onto my desk. Valerie is the amazing soul that introduced me to Abraham Hicks, New Thought, and the Law of Attraction. She advanced my world view immensely in the several years that we worked together and I will forever have gratitude and love in my heart for this incredible woman. I’d like to share some highlights from the book which I found particular helpful to my spiritual growth.

“You are meant to be victorious! You are meant to be happy! You are meant to have an amazing life!”


  • “You were not born to struggle. You were not born to live a life where the moments of joy are few and far between.”
  • “You are meant to experience life to its fullest and have everything you want and, at the same time, be filled with joy, health, vitality, excitement, and love, because that is an amazing life!”

On What is the Power?:

  • “Without exception, every person who has a great life used love to achieve it. The power to have all the positive and good things in life is love!”
  • “Love is the cause of everything positive and good. There are not a hundred different positive forces in life; there is only one.”
  • “To harness the positive force of love and change your life, you must understand its law, the most powerful law in the universe, the law of attraction.”
  • “Whatever you give, by the law of attraction, is exactly what you attract back to yourself.”
  • “You are creating your life with your thoughts and your feelings.”

On The Power of Feelings:

  • “Every good feeling unites you with the force of love, because love is the source of all good feelings.”

On Feeling Frequencies:

  • “Your feelings and thoughts have magnetic frequencies too. Good feelings mean you’re on a positive frequency of love. Bad feelings mean you’re on a negative frequency.”
  • “Blame, criticism, finding fault, and comparing are all forms of negativity. All of them bring so much strife. With every little complaint and every moment you criticize anything, you are giving negativity.”
  • “When you give love, it not only comes back to you as positive circumstances that you love, but as it comes back, it adds even more love and positivity to your life, and so it continues. Everything is magnetic, and when something good comes to you, it magnetically attracts more good things.”

On The Power and Creation:

  • “The Creation Process… Imagine it. Feel it. Receive it.”
  • “The highest and best thing you think is possible is nothing compared to what the force of love can give to you.”
  • “Whatever desire you can imagine – already exists! It doesn’t matter what it is, if you can imagine it, it already exists in creation.”

On why Feeling is Creation:

  • “The aura surrounding each person is actually an electromagnetic field, and it’s through the magnetism of your field that surrounds you that you attract everything in your life.”
  • “If you think your desire is really big, you will create difficulty and a time delay in receiving what you want.”
  • “To help you have the true perspective of creation, no matter how big your desire may seem to you, think of it as the size of a dot!”

On how Life Follows You…:

  • “Life follows you. Absolutely everything you experience in your life is a result of what you have given out in your thoughts and feelings, whether you realize you realize you have given them or not.”
  • “For the law of attraction the other person is you, and that other person is you, and those other people are you, because whatever you feel about anyone else, you are bringing to you.”
  • “And with anything you don’t love, simply turn away from it without judgment, and you won’t include it in your life.”

On the Keys to Power:

  • “Your job is to love as much as possible every day. If you can just love and adore everything you possibly can today, look for and feel the things you love, and turn away from the things you don’t love, your tomorrows will overflow with the untold happiness of everything you want and love.”
  • “If you are walking down the street listening to the thoughts in your head, you miss it all.”
  • “Every single savior of the world used gratitude, because they all knew that gratitude was one of the highest expressions of love. They knew that when they were grateful, they were living in exact accordance with the law.”

On The Power and Relationships:

  • “No one can come into your life and affect you negatively, unless you are already on the same negative feeling frequency.”
  • “Life is presenting every person and circumstance to you so you can choose what you love and what you don’t love.”

On The Power and Health:

  • “In spite of all the advances in medicine, disease is increasing because people have become increasingly fearful of disease.”
  • “You have a complete pharmacy operating inside you that can produce every healing chemical that a pharmaceutical company can produce.”
  • “Whatever you believe about your body, your cells believe too. They don’t question anything you think, feel, or believe. In fact, they hear every thought, feeling, and belief you have.”
  • “The inside of your body is an exact map of our solar system and the universe. Your heart is the sun and the center of your body system. Your organs are the planets, and just as the planets depend on the sun to remain in balance and harmony, so do all the organs in your body depend on your heart to remain in balance and harmony.”

On The Power and You:

  • “When people reach the tipping point of giving more love than negativity, we will see negativity vanish from the planet at a rapid rate. Imagine it! Every single time you choose to give love, your love is helping to tip the entire world into positivity.”

On The Power and Life:

  • “Give the best of you. Give your love because it is the magnet to all riches of life. And your life will become richer than you thought was possible, because when you give love, you are fulfilling the entire purpose of your life.”
