I saw "The Secret" and was intrigued by the concept. Since I consider myself both a skeptic and someone who is pretty open-minded about things, I may be somewhat of an odd mix where my views are concerned, meaning that I’m always open to give new ideas a chance.
Even after watching the film and trying to put some of the techniques to use, I’m still not convinced one way or the other regarding the validity of the concepts presented. I will admit, however, that my commitment to testing the techniques fell a bit short of what might be considered thorough.
What’s most interesting to me regarding the whole “Law of Attraction” concept is that there does seem to be some evidence from scientific research that suggests we may be able to influence things around us more than we previously thought.
Some very interesting experiments in the area of quantum theory has proven that merely observing a phenomenon (in this case, a current of electrons) affects how it plays out. For me, discoveries like this make concepts like the “Law of Attraction” much more plausible.
