More About The Secret

This is the editorial section, folks, so if you don't want to suffer through my editorializing, I suggest you skip this. Of course, there may be a nugget here for you, but it is your choice.

In the installment from last month, I talked about the book, the CD and the DVD called "The Secret." There is no reason to repeat this information; just go to THE CLEAR VIBRATION April 2007 Installment # 50 to read all about it. Other than the fact that these products have placed the Law Of Attraction into the mainstream awareness, I did not express a fondness for the withholding of key information and the sensationalism of these presentations.

There are several interesting things to note, however, since our last meeting:

  • Esther and Jerry Hicks, who have been doing this Law Of Attraction work for over twenty years, through and with a group of energies called Abraham, after having withdrawn from the original "The Secret" project, now have their own two-DVD-set called "The Secret Behind The Secret." I have not viewed this product but in response to last months' installment, a friend of mine sent along a quote from Abraham: "We smile in our awareness that the movie called "The Secret" is still not revealing the secret." Gee, I wonder if Abraham read the installment from last month and is responding in agreement with it?!? Thanks, Abe! LOL!

  • Another thing is that either everyone who read the installment from last month agreed with it (Ha! Fat Chance!) or only those who agreed bothered to write or call. Normally with something like this, I would get at least a couple of "Hey-Joe-you're-crazy-and-you-made-me-mad emails!" I did not receive even one negative response to this. Perhaps those who would have responded negatively, disagreed so much that they have written me off as being hopeless! LOL! No…really, folks…I'm Fine! Oh well, everyone has an opinion, I suppose, and you know what they say about opinions: "Opinions are just like (that one part of the human anatomy used for elimination)…Everybody has one!"

  • Finally, it seems as though everyone, their brother and their brother's dog is now a Law Of Attraction Coach. These words…Law Of Attraction Coach…are becoming as generic as Kleenex has become for tissues and Windex has become for any blue colored window cleaning fluid!

Business cards are being reprinted… especially those flimsy, really classy ones that people produce on their home computers…to add Law Of Attraction Coach to their credentials. Websites, brochures and flyers are being changed, too. It is amazing. Suddenly there are tons of Law Of Attraction classes available, facilitated by tarot card readers, aura photographers, angel card readers, new age book store clerks, pizza delivery guys (well, maybe not pizza delivery guys, not that there's anything wrong with them, especially if they are delivering great pizza!), but you get the point. Everybody is jumping on the bandwagon! Perhaps the cutting edge is too scary for some. They read a book and see a movie and now POOF!!!…They are Instant Experts!!! I just find it all quite amusing.

I saw one flyer the other day for a "Secret" class posted in a new age bookstore:

The Law Of Attraction
4 Consecutive Wednesday Evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.…$75

Another flyer at the same bookstore read:

Exploring "The Secret"
2 Consecutive Monday Evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.…$20 per class

In the first class, the facilitator promises to teach you The Law Of Attraction and how it works in only a total of six hours…AMAZING! In the second class, the facilitator promises to teach you The Law Of Attraction and how it works in only four hours…TOTALLY AMAZING!

Both classes promise the road to health, wealth, relationships and spiritual enlightenment in classic TV Dinner/Microwave/Instant-Mashed-Potato style. Okay…let's all wave our magic wands.

Gee, I wonder which one is the better value for your time and money invested?

Don't get me wrong. I'm just having some fun with this, but the whole point is that now, it is trendy and fashionable to teach "The Secret"…the Law Of Attraction…and there are now hundreds of Band Wagon Hoppers jumping on board and attempting to cash in as so-called Law Of Attraction Coaches. I find this to be even stickier than people who take courses to become certified to teach other people's courses. Of course, this is legal and above board, but come on folks, take a risk. Go out on a limb. TRUST YOURSELF. Have the courage to write and present your own material. Stop playing it safe. Have The Human Experience That You Came Here To Have! Truly ride the roller coaster of life with your hands in the air instead of with your head tucked between your legs kissing your A _ _ goodbye! I'm sure you can fill in the blanks!

I just had to check the latest edition of my business card a moment ago, to be sure, and I am pleased to report that nowhere, on either side of it, does it say Law Of Attraction Coach. Phew! I was sweating that one out, especially since I have been working with aspects of this for the past five years or so! Although my previous card did say Law Of Attraction on it, the word Coach did not follow it.

Okay…let's move on to something that many people, especially in religious, spiritual and metaphysical circles are always discussing, the topic of Letting Go.

Surrender and Release: The Art Of Letting Go

You've all heard it before. Just Let It Go; Let Go And Let God; Surrender and Release It; Turn It Over To God/The Universe; etc. Yes, you've heard this all before and you may actually know this, intellectually. Some of you even teach this to your clients, but do you really believe it? Do you really know in your heart that this works? Has this worked for you?

Letting Go…Surrendering and Releasing…is not a science; it is an art. It is subjective rather than objective. This is an important part of the Law Of Attraction work that is not mentioned in "The Secret." This is a part of the Emotional Clearing work that needs to be done such that you may have the Law Of Attraction not only work (because it is always working), but work for you, in transforming your life.

Surrender and Release is an area where I spend quite a bit of time in doing my work on myself. In addition, this is a powerful tool that I use in working with others in the LIFE EMPOWERMENT Sessions, the Spiritual Life Coaching Sessions and in the Seminar/Workshops LIFE EMPOWERMENT! A Practical Approach To Self-empowerment, Transformation and Manifestation and the new COMPLETION! A New Beginning, course. In a sense, Surrender and Release is a part of the process of giving yourself an emotional enema to clean out the communication channel so that you may establish clean, clear, crisp communication with the Universe/Yourself in working with the Law Of Attraction to transform your life.

Here are some examples of how this has worked for me, beginning with a couple of easy things and moving into a significant event in my life.

  1. Many years ago, my grandmother made a trip to Sicily to visit family. She brought back souvenirs for everyone that included gold chains with crucifixes and Italian horns on them, for all of the males in our family. From the moment she gave me this gift when I was about 16 years old I have always worn it and hardly ever take it off.

A couple of years ago I went to Hamilton, Ontario, near Toronto, to present a seminar. In going through security in St. Louis on the way there, the chain, crucifix and horn caused the detector to beep. In returning to St. Louis, I took the chain off before going through security in Toronto and did not think to put it on again until after I had been home for a couple of days.

I could not find it. I searched my carry-on bag, my brief case and my passport holder, including the zippered compartments. Nothing! It appeared to be gone!

I felt terrible, sad, angry and guilty. How could this be? How could I have lost this gift that my grandmother had given me? Damn! I fretted over this for about two weeks until finally I decided that it was no longer worth it to focus energy on this loss, lest it continue to expand and I began to tell myself that I had derived many years of enjoyment from this gift, I no longer needed it, that now it was gone, whoever had it now probably needed it more than I did and I surrender and release it and turn it over to the Universe.

I repeated this to myself many times a day until I woke up one morning and actually believed it. The moment I realized this, I instantly felt lighter. Now, here is the fun part. Later on that day, I went to my passport folder to empty it of the change that it held and there it was…voila…my chain with the crucifix and horn…at the bottom of a zippered compartment that I had searched at least a dozen times before. It was not there, or at least it didn't appear to be there, the dozen times that I had looked there before, but as soon as it didn't really matter to me one way or the other, there it was, and I have worn it ever since!

  1. This past October I spent two weeks at The Center Of Consciousness in Bluemont, VA working and presenting a seminar. As I was packing the day before I was to leave, I noticed that I couldn't find a lightweight jacket that I had brought with me. Of course, it was my favorite lightweight jacket and it had cost more than just a few bucks.

Again, I began to focus on this loss and the fact that I would have to shell out more cash to replace it. Loss-Loss-Loss…Lack-Lack-Lack! I felt terrible. I looked everywhere including driving seven miles into Berryville, VA to a coffee shop called The Daily Grind, where I thought I might have left it. No such luck! It was not there. I reluctantly gave up the search and returned to St. Louis the next day, still feeling a bit empty…as if I had lost something that really mattered.

Actually, the jacket, itself, did not matter but what it represented, mattered immensely. It represented one of those silly, tangible things that we Humans cling to, like the stuff that we cling to and like the relationships that we cling to; stuff that makes us feel good about ourselves for the moment.

I worked on surrendering and releasing the jacket and all that it represented, until I knew that it was gone and it no longer had any real significance in my life. Not long after I arrived at this Knowingness, which was about a month and a half after I had discovered this loss, my friend Chris, the manager of the center, called and said that she had found my jacket at her house and was mailing it to me!

In these two examples, almost as soon as I was able to honestly, in my heart, trust and turn it over to the Universe, the items were returned to me along with some incredible information and lessons learned that I have been able to pass on to others.

Surrender and Release, turn it over to the Universe and More Magic!

  1. Now it's time for the big one! About three years ago I found myself in the position of Surrendering and Releasing a primary relationship that I did not at the time, want to be over. Looking back on it all, the demise of that relationship was the best thing that could have happened. What I learned both in that relationship and in Surrendering and Releasing that relationship, has been invaluable both to me and to my clients.

This one took me a lot longer than a few weeks or a month but this was the experience where I proved to myself that Surrender and Release actually does work and it caused me to create processes to achieve this for myself and for my clients, as well. I had to work this in several different stages, releasing a piece in stage one, another chunk in stage two and the whole thing in stage three, attempting to not lie to myself or fool myself and only moving to the next stage when I felt that it was right and it resonated with me.

Once I honestly decided to Surrender and Release this relationship, the mental and emotional attachments were the first to go. This was not necessarily an easy or speedy task. From the moment of breakup, it was weeks and then months…about seven months to be close to exact, before I began to feel mentally and emotionally detached and free.

Spiritual and physical detachment was another story. It was the spiritual detachment that came next as I continued to work in stage three of the Surrender and Release process that was created as a result of this relationship, but it was a long, even laborious process. When two people are so deeply and strongly connected spiritually, the Human has difficulty detaching, thinking that the spiritual bond will be broken. There is a difference between detaching and breaking, spiritually. Spiritually, the bond is never broken. It always was, currently is and always will be present, but it is the Human Dependency on that spiritual connection that must be disengaged and that's what takes the time and work.

By working diligently, the Human Dependency on the spiritual attachment was disengaged just a couple of months later, about nine months after the initial breakup, just about the time that I presented my first self-penned seminar.

That left the Human Dependency on the physical attachment of this relationship. I am not going to discuss the details here, but this was perhaps the most difficult area from which to detach, for many reasons. Although I could actually feel, energetically, that there was mental, emotional and spiritual disengagement, there had been so much experienced and learned by both of us in physical part of the relationship, that it lingered the longest. By staying focused on the Surrender and Release work, that part, too, did detach.

I can tell you, based on my own experience, Surrender and Release, Letting Go and Turning It Over To The Universe worked for me and it can work for you as well.

THE CLEAR VIBRATION™ May 2007 Installment # 51


Dearest Warriors of the Light…

Welcome Home!

HOME, indeed! We cannot emphasize this enough. You are always HOME, in fact You are the embodiment of that which you identify as HOME; you carry HOME with you because You, Yourself, ARE HOME. We so love it and find it humorous as you so successfully create the illusion to convince yourselves that you are somewhere other than HOME. It is indeed, a magnificent game that you have created! Bravo! Bravo!!!

This time, we shall discuss a very important aspect or your magnificent game; if fact, we will discuss the key to playing and being successful at your game.

The Key

Think about it for a moment. What is the one thing that you need in order to successfully play your game? Now…we are not here to play word games. We know that there are no unsuccessful ways to play the game and that all paths lead to HOME, so stay with us. When we ask the question, "What is the one thing that you need in order to successfully play your game?" we mean that in a combination of the most traditional, 3-D Human sense and the metaphysical/spiritual sense, as well.

The key to your game is Trust; Trust in yourself first and then in the Universe. We can see the quizzical look on some of your faces as you question this idea so we will explain.

If you do not Trust Yourself, then how could you be Accepting? How could you Adapt to change? How could you stay within yourself, knowing that the All That Is, is within you? If you do not Trust Yourself, then how could you effectively Communicate with others or even with yourself; or how could you set healthy boundaries? You would not have even the slightest idea of where to set them! If you do not Trust Yourself, then how could you know your Truth and then, have the courage to speak it?

Some might say that the key to your game is Love, but you see, if you don't trust yourself, how could you ever possibly choose to Love yourself. Without self-trust, you wouldn't know that you were good enough to Love! You wouldn't know that Loving Yourself was the correct choice!

Yes, Dearest Warriors, Trust In Yourself is the key to your game.

Merlin The Magician

The incredible stories of Merlin The Magician have been told, far and wide. Some of you literally believe in the existence of this magnificent sorcerer and others of you believe in the idea or the essence of the stories told about him. Some believe that he exists/existed in your 3rd Dimension and others believe that he exists/existed in another Dimension, perhaps parallel to yours. It does not matter what you believe. Merlin, just like you, exists/existed in all of these places, here, there, now, yesterday, tomorrow, in your mind, in your heart, in your imagination.

Some of you know this sorcerer well and in fact, have a personal relationship with him. The Merlin energy has come to you many times and imparted his knowledge and wisdom to you, sometimes when you are conscious and aware and other times when you are else ware.

Do you suppose that Merlin The Magician Trusted himself? Of course, he did! If he did not trust himself, at least in the moments of what you call magic, the magic would never have been achieved! It takes Trust In Yourself to allow you to tap into the Magic That Is You!

The Practicality of Merlin the Magician

We agreed long ago to do a particular aspect of this work with our partner, specifically regarding the Practical Application of Divinely Inspired Information. Over the course of time, we have spoken often of The Bridge… Living and Being The Bridge…and the Practical Application of this concept in your life.

Living and Being The Bridge is simply living your life with one foot in the spiritual side, having access to all the spiritual tools that the Universe has to offer and one foot in the Human, 3-D experience, in harmony, with the two legs of the Bridge meeting in the center, Within You.

This is truly the pinnacle of the experience that you chose for yourself…a Spiritual Being having a Human experience AND a Human Being having a Spiritual experience. This was/is the experience that Merlin had/has, moment to moment. Can you see this? Merlin had this art down to a science! Living and Being The Bridge, in harmony with yourself, which of course requires ultimate Trust in yourself, is exactly what Merlin did and this is what we are advocating for you.

Trusting Yourself, which includes Living and Being The Bridge, will bring you the ultimate in the Human/Spiritual Experience. If you Trust Yourself, you may begin to notice that it is much easier to Love Yourself and from here, all things are possible.

While we have stated that Trust Is The Key to playing and being successful at your game, it is Love that is the purpose of and the answer to all.

Know this above all:
Love is the answer;
Love Is The Answer.
No Matter What The Question;
Love is always the answer!

Until next time, WE ARE ONE and we express to you our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude for the opportunity to present this information to you for your discernment.




We ask only that you…

Laugh Often
This is called Lightwork. Do not take it so seriously.
It is only a game. Light-en up!

Spread The Light
You are the Light. Allow yourself to shine!


You are the breath of God!

YOU ARE GOD, and So Is Everyone Else.

We reluctantly leave you at this time but before we go, please allow us to reveal ourselves:

All along, it has been Me talking to YOU; You talking to Me; You talking to You; and Me Talking to Myself…no mystery, no mystique.

From the beginning it has been Us talking to Ourselves.

I AM Joseph…I AM the Sentinel…I AM the Human

I AM You
