The Key
The Missing Secret for Attracting Anything You Want

by Joe Vitale

      Have you read books on the law of attraction? Did you act on your visualized goals only to land short? If you’re lost after reading books like The Secret, author and internet guru Joe Vitale guides readers to answers in The Key, The Missing Secret for Attracting Anything You Want.

Most people think the law of attraction does not work when they are bombarded with negative events. According to Vitale, the law of attraction is always at work. In many instances, people do not take inspired action. Understand that you attract everything you have right now, even unwanted things like more bills or a terrible job.

The problems of not getting what you want lie in your subconscious, where you believe that you will always live in debt or that you are not smart enough for a better job. When your conscious and subconscious beliefs are at odds, you attract similar things through your stronger subconscious thoughts. Those deeply-buried negative beliefs cancel your conscious thoughts. Vitale explains how to clear these self-limiting beliefs to attract anything you want in life.

One way begins with gratitude. Most people search for the latest and greatest, whether that is the best deal, best car, best house, or best spouse. Their focus is outward and away from present circumstances. This leads to greater dissatisfaction; you never will be happy when the newest goal is tossed aside for the future acquisition. You can still attract material possessions as long as you find gratitude in your present situation. Vitale suggests starting a gratitude journal and advises readers that gratitude can be found in even dire situations.

Many readers may recognizeVitale as a key figure in the book and movie, The Secret. In Vitale’s The Key, his easy-to-follow prose is seasoned with works from other self-help experts. The beginning of the book explains the law of attraction and how to channel it for anything you want in life. The second part guides readers through clearing the subconscious using ten methods that include: forgiveness, hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Techniques, and healing release. An interview with Vitale, tips for emotional freedom and an explanation of miracles counseling round out the book. I really enjoyed the multiple methods to clear your subconscious and applaud Vitale’s response to tough subjects, like how attraction works in horrific situations such as starvation or birth defects. If you felt frustrated with the information in The Secret, there’s good news. The Key holds the missing piece you need to attract anything your heart desires.

Highly Recommended.
