Tip#1210: The Recipe For Resilience, Perseverance & Indestructible Optimism, Part 16 – The Secret: Dare to Dream

This is Day 161 of the COVID-19 quarantine/social distancing here in Toronto, Canada. 

I’ve been feeling better this past week after several weeks of having the quarantine blues and it’s thanks to bringing back my daily practice of the law of attraction. It reminded me of the self-help documentary The Secret that profoundly affected my life back in 2006. I found myself revisiting tips and methods that definitely help me in the past that included the fascinating reticular activating system (RAS). It’s a scientific explanation for how the law of attraction works and I featured this on my blog for the film, Focus starring Will Smith. See: Tip#831: Creative Visualization, Part 1 - Reticular Activating System (RAS) - Priming – Focus

By reprogramming my RAS, I was able to pull my mind and moods out of depressed states by first thinking and picturing a ‘big vision” of what I want for my life and work. I then wrote these visions as goals and affirmations as if they’ve already happened and repeated them several times a day e.g. I AM FEELING SO HEALTHY & STRONG

This was one of many affirmations but it led me to insights for finding simple recipes for eating more raw veggies and fruits, doing extra long walks and running on the spot exercises per day. That led to being more focused and feeling better a little more each day which then led to even more insights of how to strengthen my mind and positive thinking. 

For example, I began watching more daily YouTube videos on the RAS and that led to more insights, clarity and self-confidence! And the beauty of YouTube is it remembers your topic preferences so it would give me more videos on the RAS each day! It’s a beautiful metaphor for how the RAS actually works.

During this time it was no coincidence that I saw a new Hollywood film on the law of attraction concepts from The Secret. So far I’ve watched it twice and knew that I was also programming my RAS for more good to come into my life! Here’s how… 

The Secret: Dare to Dream (2020) 

The drama, romance film, The Secret: Dare to Dream, is about Miranda Wells (Katie Holmes) and her three children meeting a mysterious man, Bray (Josh Lucas) who brings unexpected gifts that re-ignites the family’s spirits during hard times. This entertaining film is brimming with self-help insights while also featuring engaging and heartfelt performances by everyone including Jerry O'Connell, Celia Weston and the children Sarah Hoffmeister, Aidan Brennan and Chloe Lee.

What I loved about this film is that it introduced bite sized nuggets of wisdom about the law of attraction like in the wonderful “pizza wishing” scene! It also features examples of pessimistic thinking versus optimistic thinking that we can all relate to. And most of all it highlights many examples of wonders and miracles that I’ve already witnessed and experienced in my own times of hardship and depression. I highly recommend seeing this film especially if you are struggling in some part of your life. 

Movies can affect people in so many different ways. And yet with a positive mindset going into a screening you can attract answers and insights from the story or characters to move you forward from challenges you are facing. Find a film today to watch and believe it will help you right now in raising your spirits, energy and hope!
