Giveaway Contest- The Secret and The Law of Attraction

Are you aware of the power of your mind?

I was using the power of my mind, and the so-called “Law of Attraction” before I ever knew it had a name. I’m a writer, and my imagination has always been my best friend. It has helped me cope with tough times in my life, and looking back, I can see how it helped to shape my experiences. I have consistently visualized and wrote about the circumstances and experiences I desired, and I can honestly say, most have come to fruition.

It’s A Real Thing

I first wrote about the movie “The Secret” and the Abraham-Hicks books on the Law of Attraction in a previous blog post, but to summarize, they both explain what the Law of Attraction is and how to use it. How the universe responds to our “vibration” or thought patterns, because our thoughts (and the emotions that cause them) actually do affect the vibration of everything around us. Basically, what you think about is what you attract, so it’s better to have an understanding of how it works, so you can influence what happens, right? If you’d like to learn more about how to do this, and manifest what you want in life, I have good news!

I accidentally purchased a duplicate copy of the book, Money and The Law of Attraction, by Esther and Jerry Hicks, and an instructional 2-CD set of one of their lectures, as well. I also have an extra copy of the movie, The Secret, by Rhonda Byrne, and I’d like to give them away here on this blog.

Paying It Forward

It is important to me that the book, CDs, and movie DVD end up in the hands of those who truly want to learn about the Law of Attraction. They have helped me immensely, and I want to pass this knowledge on. I am holding a contest, with two winners- one for the Abraham-Hicks book and CD set, the other for The Secret movie DVD. Both are a great introduction if you are just starting out, or as additional knowledge if you have been studying. If you are interested, and want to enter for the drawing, here’s what to do:

Post a comment on this blog before April 15, 2018, explaining why you want to win, what the Law of Attraction means to you, or why you are eager to learn about it. Winners (one for each prize) will be chosen at random from the comments on April 16, 2018. (Open to U.S. residents only, WordPress is not responsible in any way).

If you are interested in metaphysical topics in general, I have compiled a mini-eBook on posts I’ve written which you might find informative. It’s FREE if you sign up for my newsletter at reneeregent.com/newsletter. There are four more free mini-eBooks there for you to download, too, if you like.

I have read the book and listened to the CDs, and watched the movie, many times. If I feel negative thoughts taking over, it helps me to get back on track. This really has made a difference in my life, and I am eager to help you do the same.

So, what do you think about the Law of Attraction? Good luck!

Psychics in Fiction vs. Reality

Tarot Card And Candle

It’s been said that everyone is psychic, to a degree. But most people don’t use their latent psychic abilities, so the ones who do seem extraordinary. In fact, we are more likely to gain any knowledge or awareness we have about people with psychic abilities from fiction, television, and movies, rather than true life experiences. Though we are fascinated with the idea of being able to use our minds in unusual ways, it seems to be more acceptable as a fantasy than a reality.

Real-Life Psychics

I have met several “real” psychics in my life, so I know they do exist. I enjoy having a psychic reading now and then, and at least half of those turned out to be accurate, meaning whatever they told me was to happen was specific and verifiable. I’m not talking about generalizations that could apply to anyone, but names, dates, circumstances that no one else would know about in advance, including myself! It seems that some people can “read” you, and tap into something where they can tell you what’s ahead. Sort of like a psychic GPS.

An example- after my husband died, I got a psychic reading in Sedona, Arizona (mother of all psychic places to visit). This was actually a friend of a friend, and I did not pay her, we were just hanging out. She tapped into all kinds of stuff that was going on with me at the time, most of which was so accurate got chills. She even predicted that I would remarry, and she also saw a child involved.

I had just started dating again and being childless all my life, was against dating anyone with children or even contemplating marriage (see my earlier post on that subject here). Well, she told me I would meet him within nine months, but it only took six before I met the man I was going to marry- and his son.

Fictional Psychics

So…that is only one example, and I think it is extraordinary when people can do that. But in fiction we must have conflict, and so here are the most common types of psychics used in fiction:

Crime solvers– can “see” where the bodies are buried, find missing children, etc.

Ghost whisperers– can communicate with the dead

Evil psychics– played for the fear factor, abilities used to hurt and /or control others

Comedic– played for laughs, as in Beetlejuice or Ghost (Whoopie Goldberg)

Being a romance author, I am particularly interested in psychics as people; how they interact with others, how it affects their relationships. But the nature of psychic phenomena lends itself to building tension, or conflict, since we don’t know how it really works or why some people have it. It can be used for good but also things can go horribly wrong, and that is what I am looking forward to exploring in my stories.

Have you ever had a psychic experience? What types of psychics do you enjoy reading about?
