Q. I recently saw the movie “The Secret” and was very intrigued. I have being using the Law of Attraction by visualizing and speaking what I want in my life. At this point, nothing has seemed to change nor have I attracted what I am seeking. Is there more to this secret that I do not understand?
— Martin, Aliso Viejo

A. Actually there is more understanding required in order to effectively achieve the results discussed in “The Secret.” It is not enough to just visualize and affirm or speak what you want. We all must know at a very deep level that we can have what we are seeking, and feel this truth at our very core. Jesus said, “It is done unto us as we believe.”  The operative word is “believe.” We can visualize and say all those things we want, but if we don’t believe consciously or subconsciously that we can have it or deserve it, it may evade us. “The Secret” is a great start to the law of attraction, however, there is a much deeper essence involved in achieving results.

Q. I have never been a religious person, but I have been seeking more spirituality recently to better understand others, the world and myself. In your beliefs or teachings, what is your main focus to bring clarity to your audience.
— Connie, San Clemente

A. We believe in a Higher Power (God, Spirit) that is a loving presence working through every individual. We believe in Oneness and that there is no separation. We believe we each possess those qualities of God and that we are each unique, individualized expressions of God. We are inclusive, non-judgmental, open-minded, and we take responsibility for our actions and consequences that result. We don’t believe in sin but, rather, that sometimes we miss the mark or get off course with our actions. However, we do learn from these mistakes and move forward with greater clarity as we grow and evolve along the way. Spirituality is an ongoing process of learning and understanding.
