Have you ever watched or read something that convinced you that's it's time to re-think your life?
That is what happened to me when I watched “The Secret” for the first time. It was like a minefield of "aha" moments and lightbulbs going off in my brain. So many things that I could have handled differently, so many chances to shift focus. I felt a fundamental change in my brain and my soul that day. So much has changed for me since that day, my life has taken a much-needed turn for the better.
Life before “The Secret”
Before watching “The Secret” my life was full of stress. Constantly struggling to pay bills, not wanting to answer the phone for fear of bill collectors. In my professional and personal relationships, I always felt like I was being attacked when there was any form of criticism. There was also the belief that no matter how hard I worked; I would always have to fight to prove my worth to everyone around me. Needless to say, it was emotionally draining.
After “The Secret”
After watching “The Secret” I was ready to change my life. The first thing I did was grab a bunch of magazines and make my very first vision board. The process was so exciting. I remember sitting on the living room floor with my brand-new cork board, a pair of scissors, and ripped up magazines all over the room. It looked like a tornado had gone through our house. But I was happy! I remember feeling such a sense of gratitude and relief, a knowing deep within me that everything was going to work out. I now believed that everything was working to prepare me for what I wanted. I was now grateful for my experiences. Instead of my experiences happening to me, they were now preparing me for my future happiness and success.
A couple years later, I visited “The Secret” website. I printed out a couple Secret checks and posted them in my cubicle next to my computer monitors. I still remember how I felt when I realized that we had already received the amount in the first check. I immediately called my husband, super excited, like “It happened! It really came true!” The excitement was real but it was also confirmation that I was on the right path. I felt so full of gratitude; I had never felt such intense energy humming through my body. The 2nd check was so unexpectedly fulfilled that it was truly shocking. Both amounts were more than I had ever received at one time. The first check was fulfilled in about 3 different deposits, each one unexpected but needed. The second check came through as a business transaction. In this, I learned to look at the whole rather than one incident at a time. I would never have noticed the fulfillment of the first check had I only been looking for one lump sum deposit. It was because I let go of my expectation of how the universe was going to answer me, that I was able to see how my request was actually answered. That realization is what changed my perception. I now saw that it was the accumulation of all the small things that put you where you needed to be to receive your wish from the universe.
Since watching “The Secret” that day, I truly believe the universe is working in my best interest. No, every day is not perfect. Yes, I still have days where I am completely stressed out, pissed off at the world, and ready to throw a tantrum like a 3-year-old in Walmart. I allow myself to feel the feeling. Then I brush myself off and think back to “The Secret”. I always go back to that feeling of gratitude and belief in what is still to come. In all its ups and downs, life is absolutely wonderful!
