Human Science


By Jean from New York

I have spent the better part of my life content. I had a wonderful husband and 2 terrific kids. I've been blessed in almost every way. I have always had the ability to live my life satisfied with whatever I had. When I sought new and different things I was lucky enough to achieve my goals most of the time and when I didn't I lived with the fact that it wasn't meant to be. I've tried to be giving and loving with everyone in my life and I hope that I have been more times than not. Everything was going smooth and then, In 2003 my husband became very ill. Later that year he passed away. We had been married for 20 years, together a total of 25. Our whole adult life was spent together. We were best friends. Getting through his loss was probably the hardest thing I've ever experienced. I wasn't sure what my life would be like without him. Could I carry all of life's problems on my shoulders? Could I be both mother and father to my kids? For the first time in a long time I was confused and I wasn't sure of the answers. Slowly I put things in perspective and started getting us settled. But I still felt like something was missing. No matter how things came together for me, something just wasn't right.

When all the talk about "The Secret" started I thought it was just one more self help book that I'd like to get around to reading. But something kept nagging at me. I would catch every talk show that was promoting the book or I would run into a friend who brought up the subject. It was always ending up right under my nose. I finally ordered it online. It came the other day and I'm about half way through it. I've already made a very big change to the way I process my thoughts. It's not a new idea. The law of attraction has been around for many years. But when you read this book or watch the video, you will understand why it works. Our thoughts are our greatest gift and with them we can create the type of world we live in.

It's amazing what you can do with your life if you just believe. The trick is learning how to get over our tendency to fear and doubt ourselves and others. This book will show you how to do that. The price of the book or the video is nothing compared to what you will learn from it. Everyone should read or watch "The Secret".
