The Secret and my son's diagnosis...
from Oregon, USA
I just want to say "Thank you" to the author Rhonda Byrne for writing this book. I have a somewhat unique life story, and have had many obstacles I have had to overcome in my life. For many years I walked this earth an angry, bitter person, but through sheer willpower and guts I have made many positive changes in my life.
Most recently, my son was put in jail for a crime he committed. He was looking at a lot of time in prison, somewhere between 8-20 years behind bars. To top that off, he noticed a big lump in his leg that was getting bigger every day. After a long six months, they finally sent him to a doctor and the doctor said there was a chance it was Liposarcoma, a rare form of cancer. I was devastated, to say the least. I was sure my son would die in prison! I tried very hard to be a pillar of strength for my family, but was sinking fast into depression.
One day, my husband took me to the mountains here in Oregon where I usually find solace. It wasn't working. I came home and turned on the TV and Rhonda was on Oprah. I began to listen to her. I took notes. I prayed. Immediately, I began to say out loud that I am so glad that my son is healthy. Every time the thought of cancer entered my mind, I stopped and replaced the thought with the opposite thought. My son called the next day to tell me a specialist just told him they think it's not cancer. I ordered the book for him and bought me a copy. I have done everything it tells me.
My son called Monday to tell me his sentence is only going to be 51 months! More than half what they were actually thinking he would get. The doctor removed the tumor, tested it, and it's not cancer!
There are so many things that have happened to me and my family since I started doing what Rhonda says! My attitude has changed. People tell me I look different. I know that my dreams will come true, because it's already been proven to me. I intend to write myself a million dollar check, because several years ago I had a vision of my life and I was prosperous....
Thank you from the bottom of my soul!!!!!!
