The Key to the Secret – An Interview with Author Mina Faraway

Mina Faraway

Dearest Reader,
I’ve been practicing the Law of Attraction since childhood. I started by finding the first star in the sky and reciting a popular nursery rhyme. It goes:

Star Light, Star Bright,

First star I see tonight,

Wish I may, wish I might,

Have the wish I wish tonight.

Then I would make my wish with all my heart. I believe I received everything I wished for and truly wanted. Being a child, I forgot about my wish during the day, not realizing at the time it was the “letting go” part of the process.

When I became an adult, I stopped making wishes and reciting the poem, but I continued to get almost everything I wanted and set my mind to. When I wanted a specific job, they hired me. When I wanted something physical, I earned enough to buy it myself; I bartered for it; or someone gifted it to me. After all, I had learned that wishes come true.

I wrote The Key to the Secret to share the epiphanies, or inspired thoughts, that helped me connect the dots between some of the Law of Attraction teachings. The ones I specifically struggled with in the daily chaos of life included how you transition from imagining and visualizing what you want, to “letting go” and living your life as if you have it all now. I hope it helps you find ways to “game the system” of your own mental processes in a way that’s fun and fulfilling, so you can receive everything you desire faster.

I’m literally living my ideal schedule and the life I wanted right now, and it happened much faster than I expected. Just remember to go through every step and review and recite what you have written. Feel it and live is now as closely as you can. When you can’t physically do so, use your vibrant imagination to fool yourself into living it.

1. Define your purpose

2. Decide what you will provide in exchange for success

3. Set a date for when you will achieve it

4. Have faith and confidence

5. Embrace your negative thoughts

6. Live your ideal schedule

7. Fool yourself into your passion

8. Visualize your day

9. Practice gratitude and appreciation

10. Let believe you have it already

11. Take action on inspired ideas

12. “Donate” your bills and outstanding debt

13. Place whatever you desire in your Universe shopping cart

14. Describe your ideal relationships

15. Sign a contract with the Universe

Remember The Key to the Secret and you’ll be absolutely unstoppable.

I’m so happy and grateful for you.

What is The Key to the Secret about?

It’s a Law of Attraction book for readers already familiar with the law of attraction and manifesting, but who may be struggling with the hardest parts of the process, especially when it comes to believing you have what you desire now, fooling yourself into living your dream life, and letting go. 

Why did you write this book?

I’ve practiced the Law of Attraction off and on throughout my life. I’ve been thrilled by successes and frustrated by setbacks. When I made a personal break through recently, it seemed so simple I couldn’t believe I’d missed it, and yet those of us struggling with manifesting simply do miss it. I wanted to help you make the same, easy connections that I did, because they really work. Then things happen – fast!

Describe yourself in five words.

Happy, content, purposeful, present, and living my life’s purpose – and you can too!

However, those descriptions didn’t apply even 2 months ago. I was struggling. What I wanted most still wasn’t happening and I didn’t know why. I consumed everything I could and slowly the pieces of the puzzle came together. That’s when everything clicked for me. I had discovered the key.

I wrote The Key to the Secret to share those pieces with you so you can live your life’s purpose too. It’s part book, part workbook and designed to guide you through the stickiest parts of manifesting for your own breakthroughs. The steps are faster and easier than you think. You do need to have a very vivid imagination and you do need to take steps forward every day, but when you’re doing what you love, it’s such a joyful process. It will feel like you can breathe again.

How do you work through self-doubts and fear? 

It’s impossible to block all negative thoughts and worries. If you try, they seem to get louder and stronger. Jack Canfield of Chicken Soup for the Soul says, “Cancel. Cancel. Cancel.” Rhonda Byrne of The Secret has a wonderful “welcoming exercise”, where you hug your negative thoughts and then let them go. In The Key to the Secret, it’s about identifying the negative thought and replacing it with a positive equivalent. Then you cross out the negative version and recite the positive affirmation every day from there on out. There are many exercises out there though – it’s whatever works best for you. Try them all until you find one that works!

What scares you the most? 

Like everyone, failure. Not being able to support my family. Looking foolish in front of those who are important. But once I realized those fears were in my own head (no one else’s), it all dissipated.

When you reveal your purpose to those around you, you’ll be surprised at who supports you and who doesn’t. To me, it’s a weeding out process and a necessary and healthy one.

When you’re doing what you love, it’s not work. You become radiant, which benefits everyone around you. And when you see how quickly you could be living the real you and how happy you’ll be, those around you who want the best for you will love and appreciate the change in you. Those who don’t will naturally fall away. Don’t mourn their absence because you will start attracting other people who do support you.

What makes you happiest?

Acknowledging my true path. I’m not resisting it anymore. Practicing gratitude for everything I have every day, several times a day. Having the tools and energy to help others in the ways I’m able to fills me up.

I’m showing my children I’m full of joy and love what I do and demonstrating that anything is possible and I would like you to do the same for yourself, your family, and your children!

What fact about yourself would really surprise people? 

I’m trilingual, but I probably couldn’t order a meal in the other 2 languages now, it’s been so long! I’ve worked in law enforcement, information technology, and business consulting, but my most enjoyable projects were all writing-based. I keep returning to writing, so I know it’s my life’s purpose. I don’t consider writing work. It just flows. I lose track of time.

Think about what your bliss is and focus on how to do more of it. Don’t worry about the money or the time right now – knowing where you’re going is the number one priority. Then take the next step and the next, and before you realize it, you’ll be there.

Where are you from?

I’m a native to the state of Colorado, in the United States. I’ve traveled the world and seen some incredible places, but this is home. It’s an extremely harsh environment. I joke that every season is trying to kill you.

What do you hope people will take away from your writing? How will your words make them feel?

I want you to know it’s not as hard as it seems at first to make things happen. But manifesting what you want does take work. Be clear about what you want. Visualize the end goal. Don’t worry about how to get from here to there. Take small steps and actions every day that are aligned with your purpose. Fire up your vivid imagination and belief system to prepare you for the opportunities that will arise. Enjoy the game of it. Be ready for miracles. It happens faster than you think.
