When I was first introduced to The Secret, it was by my young son who was about 11 at the time. He was at his Aunt's home and he saw the DVD with her and it made such an impression on him. He couldn't wait for me to see it, because it seemed only he knew that our lives could be better.
So I watched the DVD and I was impressed, but with my short attention span and my life experiences I couldn't focus on that alone. I understood the concept, but it was merely words out of my mouth without feelings. My daughter purchased the book for me to read and I could not focus enough to get the meaning of it all, so I purchased the CD set to listen in my car and that helped me a lot but still not to the full potential. You see, there are some people in this universe that are so smart but the simplest of things are complicated to understand but that never stopped me from listening, daily.
Still frustrated but knowing that everything was valid I visualized a way I could understand the meaning of the Secret. Then there came "The Power", my daughter made this purchase for me for my birthday in September 2010. Since I began reading that book, my life has changed dramatically. It took me one month to read the entire book because I wanted to learn - not just read - so every day during my lunch hour I studied that book until I felt every chapter, every word every ounce of what is in that book and now I get it.
It began with me losing my work badge, I could not understand how I lost it but I did, I tried to find it on my own and I couldn't, so one day I proclaimed to the universe that I needed my badge and asked the universe for a 24 hour return and it was returned to me. By morning I had my badge, which would have cost over $100 to replace. It was placed literally at my front door. I also asked the universe to return my watch to me. My mate purchased that item for me on Mother's day the previous year and it is really dear to me but I had not been able to find it for at least 6 months and one Saturday out of the blue he handed me my watch and I was so excited.
So now I feel so much confidence in asking for what I want and knowing that it is already mine and the things I want have no size I just ask for everything out of and in the name of love. Thank you so much Rhonda, I cannot wait until the day I meet you, I am so grateful for you for and I love you dearly.
