The Secret – Dare to Dream
Film Review by Lorraine Hess
Starring Katie Holmes and Josh Lucas, ‘The Secret: Dare to Dream’ is inspired by the phenomenally successful 2006 book, ‘The Secret’, by Rhonda Byrne. The wildly popular book has sold more than 30 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 50 languages. Aficionados will know about the book’s philosophy based on the Laws of Attraction principles. Put simply, like a magnet, our thoughts and feelings create powerful energies – if we are pessimistic, we draw in negativity, if we think positively, we pull in positive outcomes. According to the book, through creative visualizations, and the practice of gratitude, we can create what we really want from life.
There is an abundance of transformational content available to stream on devices these days. The question is, how do you sift through the various platforms to find it? Here’s a list to help you narrow down what’s playing each month; films and series to stream, new and old.
Creative Lite Series (CGood TV)
This short form docu-series that sets out to re-imagine the power of creativity in the modern world. Each episode of the four-part series helps people recognize their creative gifts which can inspire change in their own lives and in the world. Watch exclusively on CGood.TV
Living With Yourself (Netflix)
Conscious TV series that are funny and enlightening are hard to come by. ‘Living With Yourself’, starring Paul Rudd, doesn’t disappoint. This series offers a humorous exploration of our shadow selves while poking fun at the lengths to which some of us might go to “be the best version of ourselves”.
Mark Allan Kaplan’s recommends ‘UnDone’, “This little hybrid animated gem uses multi-layered complex storytelling to take us on a cinematic trip into multiple dimensions of being and becoming and consciousness…and most resonant to the now…it explores the “Undoing” of our reality and that liminal space created by that undoing.”
