Baby secret steps
By Dawn S.
from Knoxville, TN
I happened to be at home the day that The Secret episode aired on The Oprah Winfrey Show. I watched and recognized the truth of what was being said enough to go online to Barnes & Noble and purchase my own copy of The Secret. Normally a 200 page book would take me about 20 minutes to read. This book, however, resonated such strong energy that it caused me to read very slowly - to the point that I just finished reading the complete book last night after about 2 weeks of absorbing everything.
What struck me and continues to strike me is that many of these concepts are ones that I have run across in my lifelong spiritual studies. What was different with The Secret concepts, however, was the application of these concepts. There were slight, but very important differences that I was reading. With practically every chapter, I was having those "oh, THAT is what I was doing wrong" moments.
I began to put what I call "baby steps" into action, using the directiions in The Secret. One was to decide that my next utility bill would "be less than expected." I have a gas water heater in my apartment and my December utility bill was outrageous; Knoxville residents were warned that the January bill would be even worse. I put the principles of The Secret into action - just made that simple statement that the bill would be less than anticipated, and let it go. I received my January bill last week and....I had a $51 credit, rather than another outrageous bill!!!! I was relieved and excited at the evidence of The Secret working so quickly and with so little effort.
The next baby step was to wipe out long existing thoughts on personal health - I decided to start with migraines, which I used to suffer with from childhood. Over the years, low pressure systems began to cause cluster migraines. Well, this week we had another low pressure system hit the East TN Valley and I decided that I was grateful that low pressure systems no longer cause me to suffer migraine attacks. I must say this wasn't such a "baby step" for me - it was HUGE to declare that statement. Over the course of the weekend, I could literally feel my head "trying" to let a migraine take hold. I would repeat the statement that low pressure systems no longer affect me in this way and state how grateful I was that this is now true and always will be true for me. The migraine never developed and I remained pain free, even though that same low pressure system is still hovering over the area in which I live.
The next "baby step" was to manifest a package deal of training CD's for software that I want to learn for new job opportunities. The package I wanted happened to sell out on the website that was offering it in January. I put the thought out there and this morning the package deal was in a newsletter email that I receive daily. Normally when a package deal like that sells out, it is rare to see it offered again for months. Needless to say, I ordered the package immediately this time, rather than dithering and letting it get sold out!
The next step seems to be manifesting for me even though I haven't exactly put the formal requests "out there." I am ready to leave my current job and move forward into better circumstances. Today I received an email from a company I interviewed with twice last year, asking me if I was still interested in employment with them. I am hoping to schedule an interview with them this week.
These several "baby steps" more than amply proved to me the power The Secret hands to us all. I am now putting even more focus and energy into changing my life and expect to post more amazing, encouraging and uplifting stories in the weeks to come. I can feel an energetic shifting taking place within myself daily and I liken it to the same feeling I receive from prayer. I have told family & friends that putting these principles into practice is actually lifting weight off of me both physically and spiritually that I had been carrying most of my life, through misinformation, believing in commonly held beliefs and embracing negative thoughts. How powerful it is to know that none of that is necessary any longer!!! I do not have to think, feel or believe in those ways ever again. Such a simple concept, really, yet the power that exudes from these concepts is beyond comphrehension. What I do know is that my life is changing as I write this story to you all. I feel a joy inside that I haven't felt since I was a child - it truly does feel like I felt as a little girl when something exciting was happening to me....all bouncy and light-filled inside.
