Now I get it!!

I can't even begin to express how greatly The Secret has impacted me both mentally and spiritually. It has made me realize so many things about myself that I needed to really analyze and change so that abundance can once again begin to flow in my life.
I look back on some instances in my life now, and I realize that, even though I didn't know it, the Universe has been listening and working with me for a long time. Since I was a little girl growing up in the Bahamas, I always wanted two things: to be class valedictorian when I graduated high school, and to travel abroad. I'd pray all the time for these, believing I would do both one day. And they happened. Our family had to move to a whole other island for me to be valedictorian, but it happened. And I got to meet the Prime Minister of our country that graduation day as well!
By the time college rolled around, things looked pretty tight. The money wasn't there for me to go abroad. One day, though, as I was on the bus coming from my summer job, I just felt this overwhelming happiness, and the thought dropped into my head that I'd be going away to school like I'd always planned. The feeling was so strong and my happiness so great that I readily accepted it, despite the fact that I had no idea where the moolah was coming from. Not too long after that, my mom learned of a scholarship to study abroad from a scientific research facility on the island where we were living. I applied, got accepted, and I got to study abroad in the U.S. at a small college in PA. My tuition was paid for by the facility and my room and board by a government grant. All I had to pay for was my ticket and my books!
So the Universe has been at work for me all the time, and I didn't really know it. It listened to me, so I have no one else to blame but myself for my current situation. Somewhere, I lost focus. Instead of expecting abundance, I've become proud of being able to work efficiently with lack and being a pillar of strength in times of trouble. And because of that, I've had nothing but lack and trouble.
I realize I made that happen, but I also know now that I can undo it, and start living my life the way I've always dreamed. I'm cleaning my mental and spiritual house right now and I'm beginning to use the powerful creative tool God has given us. I now know that I do have power to bring good, health, wealth, abundance, and overflowing love into my life, and that knowledge fills me with so much joy I can barely contain myself!!
Thank you, Rhonda, for heeding the call to share this wonderful knowledge with the world. And look out for me, y'all! I know I will be writing again soon to share the many blessings that have come about now that the Universe and I are conspiring together! God bless!!
