i returned to los angeles to meet f2fb friend #150 branden blinn. he’s a director of five short films that focus on romance between men, and he is a follower of the secret. i wasn’t surprised to learn the last fact about him–the secret is a fairly common subject in conversation with any los angeleno. the local weather reporters use the laws of attraction to explain their forecasts and every new mom asks her progeny to create the lives that they dream–and they’d better be dreaming about sharing with their little brother.
branden met me at basix in hollywood (yes, i made it to hollywood!) we talked about branden’s charmed life. he was married to an heiress and yet he walked away because that wasn’t his dream. he became a filmmaker and he has started a business helping others achieve personal mastery incorporating some tools from the secret and others that he has discovered on his own. there are eleven laws of attraction in the secret. branden also has discovered five further actions that must be used to achieve personal mastery. as well as a scale of determining one’s authority. his company is called ACACEA which stands for authentic conscious awareness catalyzes exemplary activity.
my life is so disorganized. my anxiety attacks can put a halt on any of the best laid plans. when i have heard people say the stuff from the secret about “like attracts like” i start thinking about magnets. i’m not a good candidate for this stuff. but based on my birthday of july 23, 1960 and the fact that it was in chicago, branden was able to tell me that my authority is FEELING. which means i should act on what “feels” right. he also said i could benefit from manifesting greatness, which is the program ACACEA offers.
the program costs $799 retail. but i can also purchase it for $595 plus an additional $49/month. at that second price point, i get that necessary month to month boost in the form of phone calls and encouragement. PLUS i receive $199 for every person i influence and bring into the program (with a portion of the $49 per month they’re paying as well). so after influencing three people to join this program, my start up costs would be completely covered. plus i would have the resources to turn my life around. then if those people i influence go on to influence others, i would receive compensation. he sent me home with a pamphlet about the program and he also sent me home with the business plan for the next stage in his movie producing career–ondemand movies. he is living the dream he wanted–to be a filmmaker. his films promise “movies for men attracted to men and that 80% somewhere in between”.
i couldn’t ask branden to tell me everything about the manifesting greatness program since that’s how he makes his money, but i asked for one thing–what is ONE THING i could do now that would start me on the road to personal mastery even before i started the program officially. he said i should write down five things i am grateful for every day. i am starting the list right now, thinking it through carefully, and then i’ll post my first day’s efforts later today or tomorrow.
i met branden when he cast my son eastman in the movie “everasking” which has yet to receive financing to be filmed. alas, eastman is already too old for the part he was cast in. branden nonetheless asked me to say hello to eastman. and then branden said a cheery goodbye to me. my california trip is nearly done and i have a five point piece of homework to do.
