I grew up with an abusing father. He abused me and my mother both mentally and physically for 8 years. I began to skip school because I was bullied. I had no friends. I felt alone and unloved. My mother reported my father to the police when I was 11 years old, and he was jailed. I had to go to therapy after the abuse, but I didn't like it at all. My dad got a restraining order, and my mother and I moved. During elemantary school/middle school I went to 12 different schools. I continued to skip classes.
Everything changed when my mom bought home The Secret book in 2006/2007. I didn't know it was going to change our lives. I read it, and I could feel the power of gratitude, happiness and freedom fill my entire body.
My mother had a very hard time financially so we had to move again, but this time we began to visualize. We visualized an apartment with a nice view over the water and with good neighbors. After a few months visualizing, we moved to this apartment and then I began to understand how it worked. In 2009, I got in to a Christian boarding school, where I met some beautiful friends and I got to know myself better. It was the year before highschool. So, I visualized that I got accepted to a performing arts school (I want to become an actress). I had no grades in math. I applied, and when I was called in for the enterance examinations I visualized getting full score (that was the only way to get in due to my math grades). I had to perform a monologue for the teachers. It went very well, and a few months later, I got in with the highest score.
I watched The Secret movie some weeks ago, and now I truly understand the law of attraction. I'm grateful. I'm strong. I live in harmony with myself and the Universe. And I share my story with those who doubt better days to come.
Thank you Rhonda for opening my eyes to The Secret and the Universe. I now live in peace.
