Simply A Miracle
By J. Gill
from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
At the age of 16, back in the 80s, I experimented with cigarettes, and before long I was a regular smoker. I did not mind it at first, but then I started to live my life always concealing the fact that I smoked from my parents, teachers, eventually to my wife and children. This has been a habit that started in 1986, that makes it 23 odd years now.
I watched The Secret in the hope of finding some way to improve my life from the current position that I am in (which by the way is pretty ok). I always believed that I am capable, worthy, and destined for greater things and that I have missed the boat many times. Let down by my old ways and habits of self pity, blaming the world, etc.
It was my wonderful wife who bought The Secret DVD in late August 2009, and I finally watched it on September 24th, 2009 (a Thursday). I was quite excited, especially on The Secret to Health part.
I have tried to quit smoking more than 20 times since 1986. However, after watching, I told myself that come 1st October 2009, I will stop smoking. Between 24 September 2009 till 30 September 2009, I kept repeating in my mind (and out loud) the words "I am grateful that I have stopped smoking" over and over, while also repeating other affirmations that I picked up from The Secret.
Today is October 6th, 2009, and it has been six days without a single puff, no feelings of withdrawals, no un-easiness, just feeling great with joy in my heart that I no longer need to conceal myself anymore. I believed it and I am now living it. It was not easy before, but with the knowledge from The Secret, I really am amazed at myself that I beat it so easily.
I now realise that I always had it in me, I just never bothered as I was living negatively all this time, vibrating "Out of Harmony". A new leaf has turned over for me and now when I say to myself, "I am grateful that I LOVE myself," I can actually BELIEVE that I mean it because my actions towards me today is proof of just that.
Thank you so much and Blessing be upon all, today and always.
