A Secret Week
About a year ago I was in a miserable state, because I wasnít grateful for what I had in my life, and because I did not feel good about myself. I attracted people and situations that were bad for me for several years. I hated my job because I didnít get along with my boss. I was in a relationship that I thought was the big thing. I was so passionately in love. But really, this relationship brought me so much drama, worry, and misery that I had no joy left for other people in my life. It made me feel so bad about myself all the time but I didnít even realise it.
It was when I started to change my thinking, to be grateful and feel good every day that things started to change. I got a new job that paid really well and did not bring any stress and negative feelings to my life. I thought my new positive way of thinking would change my relationship too, but out of nowhere this partner broke up with me. Devastated at the time this happened, I now know why it did.
Because this all happened before I knew The Secret.
I have a very good friend who introduced me to The Secret a few months ago. And she did it at the right moment, just when I was becoming ready to take it in and believe it...
For the last couple of months I have been thinking and practicing The Secret every day. The book is by my bed and I read a page, just any page, before going to bed at night. As soon as I feel any feeling of doubt or worry I read a few pages and I instantly feel good again.
The Secret has started to manifest more and more into my life. I always find a parking spot on the busy street outside my gym every night. Since I am happy all the time I have brought amazingly positive people into my life that bring me lots of joy. And the relationships with my friends and family have become so much better, because I have so much more joy to give.
But really I just wanted to share the story of an amazing week, where every wish I had came true.
I had met this wonderful man at a party a few weeks ago. We had the most amazing time together. After just knowing him for one night I knew he was a lot of things I wanted in a partner. The following day I was filled up with joy. I was grateful that I got to meet such great people. I was grateful for the night I had had together with this man and I told the universe I wanted to hear from him again. The second after, I realised I needed to make room for the universe to manifest my wish. I then realised I had a poem written by my ex still hanging on my fridge. Well, hidden, but it was still there. I tore it apart and threw it in the bin and felt I was ready to leave the past and open up for a bright future. A few minutes after I did this I got a message from the man from the party. Then I really started to know that The Secret really works.
Continuing to practice The Secret, I had a wonderful date with this man. He then went away for a week. While he was away, I was convincing myself that I would meet him the following weekend. I didnít hear from him while he was away and we had made no plans, but I was just sure it was going to happen. I was so sure that I started to prepare for it. I went shopping for some new things to wear and some nice makeup for our date. Since he lives a few hours from here, I even prepared to take time off from work to travel to his place.
When all this was done, I was just sitting down feeling grateful. I was grateful that great things had started to happen to me. Because whatever would happen, I knew I was on a frequency of attracting good things. And the following day, the man called, told me he was home and wanted to meet again. And we made the plans for the weekend, just the way I imagined it.
Well, now it was just this one thing. I still had some slight problem letting go of the past. On the day before our date while I was driving to work thinking about how good I felt, I knew there was just one thing preventing me from feeling joy truly and fully. I had been thinking about my ex a lot. I knew we both had been bad for each other but there were also so many good memories I had a hard time letting go of. With the new state of mind I was in it was really, really important to me to get closure with him. Because I had wanted this for a long time I had hoped to run into him. But even though we live in the same neighbourhood it hadnít happened. In one year I didnít run into him once. This morning I just felt I wanted to end all the bad things with him. Let him know I was happy, and make sure that after our miserable story he was too. I wanted to have this closure before getting into a relationship with someone else. I was almost prepared to call him, but I realised that it would just be awkward and uncomfortable and wouldnít bring me what I wanted. Instead, I just let all of my faith that the universe would bring me the situation I needed to get closure. Sooner or later it would happen. I knew it.
That same evening, I went for a walk. The same walk I walk several times every week, at the same time.
When I saw him there that evening, I wasnít even surprised. It was so expected that I was not even nervous or uncomfortable. Things turned out exactly the way I wanted. And this meeting of just a few minutes was all I needed to leave all of the past behind, to truly realise that the drama that made me believe that this love was the one and only, that all the misery that was so hard to forget had just been a creation of my own thoughts. The thoughts I used to have before I knew The Secret.
Now I was even happier. And at this same week I had also successfully finished a project at work. I had been working a lot but hadnít even realised it because I was so focused on a successful result.
This same week I also heard from several acquaintances that have a really positive effect on me that I hadnít been in contact with for a long time. I got an invitation to a reunion with a group of friends from different countries I met when I studied abroad - one of the best experiences in my life. I met up with an old colleague who had realised his dreams and now inspired me tremendously to do the same. And out of nowhere a friend of a friend who is really nice and makes me feel good e-mailed me and invited me to come and stay with her. There have been a couple of people who have a negative effect on me, but guess what... I havenít heard a word or seen a sight of them this week.
The weekend with the wonderful man was absolutely fantastic. All the things I wanted to happen happened. Since I learned The Secret I have made a list of what my perfect partner is like. Before the weekend I had a few question marks. I now know he lives up to all of them!
What happens next? After this week I know for sure that I have the power to realize everything I want. And I am so honestly grateful for that.
