When we think of movies featuring the Law of Attraction and Positive Thinking, we usually think of things like “The Shift” by Wayne Dyer or “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne or “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay.
All excellent movies that do a great job of teaching and are entertaining at the same time.
Law of Attraction and Positive Thinking Are Everywhere
Those are great teaching movies, and I have watched all of them numerous times, but in fact there are regular movies that also feature these ideas and one of the best one is Groundhog Day with Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell.
In this movie Bill Murray plays a TV weatherman who is assigned to cover the events taking place on February 2 – Groundhog Day in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where the official groundhog is supposed to forecast how many more weeks of winter there will be.
Murray is a heinous, loathsome character, rude, condescending and really an overall jerk to everyone he meets. In the movie, he misses out on leaving the town just before the big snowstorm hits trapping everyone in the town.
But in his personal world, he is condemned to repeat the event of a single day over and over again, while to everyone else it seems to be the first time they are experiencing the day. And to make matters worse, he winds up on the receiving end of the same bad behavior he customarily treats others with.
No matter what he does to change this, he wakes up every morning in the same way and repeats the day. He does make some changes in the days routine, taking advantage of everyone he meets because he knows what is going to happen.
He Must Change Himself
Eventually he realizes that if his life is going to change, he must change himself, and when he does this becoming a kind and terrific human being he is freed from the repetition of February 2nd, and allowed to progress on to the next day.
The movie itself is funny, often crassly so, this is Bill Murray after all, but the lesson he learns about changing his own life are true and poignantly presented.
The movie plays on a virtually endless loop on some US TV stations and is available in numerous other ways online.
If you want to see a movie about how easily the law of attraction and positive thinking can be used to change your life, consider looking Groundhog Day up online and watching it. Maybe even more than once.
The Law of Attraction and positive thinking are operating every day in our lives, but they don’t need to be such serious subjects all the time.
