I have been living The Secret my whole life without really knowing the principles of the Law of Attraction. I came across The Secret early 2009 when I was looking for an inspirational widget in Yahoo widgets, and stumbled upon The Secret widget. I then visited The Secret website and learnt about the DVD, and after watching it I realized that the Law of Attraction has always been at play in my life. Whenever I desired something, I always got it no matter how many people said it would be impossible.
The things I wanted always came to me effortlessly, and I used to be perplexed why others had to struggle to get the same things. For instance, I always got good grades in school, yet I never studied as hard as my friends did. While they studied all night for an exam, I would be asleep. My mum always told me that just believing you have passed an exam means you have already passed 30% of it, so I only had to work for 70%. While preparing for an exam, I always pray, asking God that whatever I read is what will be tested in an exam, and 50% of the exam always is exactly what I have read. 🙂 So I got into the schools and colleges I wanted, got to do the courses I wanted, and I even won a scholarship to study in Europe.
In 2008, I was accepted into the university that everyone had told me I couldnt get into. I was studying in a foreign language, and my was it a challenge!! Especially with colleagues who were not very friendly and cooperative, me being a foreigner. For once in my life I was failing my exams, and being miles and miles away from home I consequently fell into a depression and thought of dropping out. When I went back home that summer, I begged my mum to let me change to a university that would let me study in English, and albeit reluctantly, she agreed to pay my tuition at a private university where I could study in English. I left my previous university as they had no courses in English BA level at the time. In the process, I lost my scholarship as well.
In 2009, The Secret made me aware of just how I had attracted the good and the bad in my life. I had no doubt that it worked, I just had no idea of its mechanisms.
I love music and always wanted an iPod, but thought there was no way I could afford one. I couldnt ask my mum for money to buy one as she was doing her best to make ends meet, especially with my tuition payments. I decided to use The Secret as my manual, and I followed its directions. I didnt know where the money would come from, and I didnt care. All I knew was that there was nothing that could keep me away from that iPod!
Early March, I started visualizing the iPod 2G. I looked at it every day (I was a frequent visitor at the Apple store website), I went to the iSpot Apple stores just to touch it and play around with it, and I even picked out a cover for it. I did this every day, as the store was on my way back home from school, and every night I would be grateful for what I had and all that was coming to me.
At the end of March when I received my allowance, it was the usual amount I always got in US dollars, and I had to convert it to local currency. To my surprise, the exchange rates were sooooo good that month that when I converted the dollars, I had enough extra cash to buy my iPod, but without the case. However, when I got to the store, they had a promotion on the iPod and I could buy the case with the money remaining from the discount. Ohhh happy day! I was elated! Just like that, and it was like the money came out of nowhere!
My iPod was my first manifestation after I discovered The Secret. Since then, I have manifested numerous things, especially gadgets (I am really into technology and gadgets). My grades improved and I am graduating in a month. I plan to go back to my previous university for my masters degree (as they have it in English), as I feel I still have unfinished business there, considering how I defied peoples expectations to get in.
Of course there have been times when I let doubt get in the way of things, but nowadays when I feel negative thoughts creeping in, I listen to The Power audio book (no doubt, its a powerful doubt chaser!). I also love reading the stories from others living The Secret. They always lift up my spirits.
I have used LOA successfully in all aspects of my life, but when it comes to relationships, somehow things are yet to fall into place. Its like when I am about to get there, I screw things up. But reading the stories here, I am working on manifesting the perfect relationship.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Rhonda and The Secret team and to you dears who have shared your stories with the rest of us. Keep writing, I always look forward to your inspirational stories. I will be back with another story on The Secret and relationships in my life, and winning the LOTTERY!!!!
If you have to dream, you might as well dream BIG! After all, the Universe doesn’t care about size! 🙂
