A Flash Of Life, A Flash Of Life
There are not enough words to express the gratitude I feel about discovering the Secret. It’s inspired me to share my story with the knowledge that I now live vicariously through the Secret, which came about through an incredible sequence of events.
My day of discovery started March 2nd, 2011. It was a Wednesday and my mother and I had gotten into a terrible argument – don’t get me wrong, I love my mother but we are total opposites, she is negative and I am positive – but I love her with all my heart. That being said I left the house and immediately called my wife. Shaking I told her what had happened and she thoughtfully said, “You need to figure out a way to get along with her, why don’t you go to a movie or do something that will calm you down.” I took her advice and went to the movies that day, all the while asking how I can fix this problem.
For the next couple of days I pondered and asked myself the same question over and over again and the answer came to me from the unlikeliest of places – Netflix. My wife and I have a Netflix account for mailed and instant view movies. Saturday – I’ll never forget this date – March 5th, 2011, while scrolling through the instant view new releases we ran across The Secret. The title captured my attention immediately – not knowing what the movie was about. So my wife and I watched The Secret that night and I soon realized my question had been answered.
Inspired, I immediately went to Amazon.com and searched for The Secret. After finding the DVD and adding it my purchase que, I also added Daily Teachings and the audio versions of The Secret and The Power. Excited I searched for The Secret’s website and downloaded all the freebies, signed up for the Secret Scrolls, and set about absorbing myself in The Science of Getting Rich, The Master Key System (currently in my third lesson after three weeks) – impatiently waiting for my Amazon delivery, I might add.
I received my Amazon order two days later and have been listening to the audios every day. The next weekend my wife and I both made a promise to each other that we would change our lives – living life and doing things a Certain Way. The following weekend I sat down with my mother and told her I now understand her, her life, and the reasons why we fight. It’s not because of the lack of love, it’s because we didn’t understand ourselves, let alone each other. During our talk I noticed she was beginning to cry – I knew then that she finally became aware of everything that was and what will become. I then introduced her to The Secret.
In my job (BTW, I no longer call it a job, it’s a hobby and I no longer go to work, I go out and play) I travel and deliver things to different parts of the U.S. I use this time to listen to the audio books. Up to this point in my life, roughly two weeks after watching The Secret, I was experiencing a lot of negative things – not enough money, absolutely no gratitude for what I had, irritations, you name it I had it and chalked it up to the things I had asked for. Well, during one of my trips, South Carolina, it was about 1:30 in the morning and I happened to look up into the sky, noticing the awesome grandeur, beautiful stars, and 3/4 moon. It was in this moment I noticed a bright light – it appeared out of nowhere, almost luminescent and about the size of a pea. As soon as I saw it the light flashed across the sky, about two feet in my perspective. Can you imagine what the distance was up there!
My first thought was UFO, but as I started to really think about it I believe what I saw was a meteorite hitting the Earth’s atmosphere and bouncing off, creating the flash of light across the midnight sky – almost as if God was skipping rocks across the Universe. In that moment I realized just how precious human life and our existence really is – Wow! On the way home from South Carolina I popped The Power into the CD player and began listening, thinking about what I had just witnessed and needless to say, a flood of awareness and thought opened up to me and I soon realized that the last two weeks of asking for understanding, gratitude and joy were now mine.
My wife and I now live our lives through The Secret and we’re asking for a lot more things. My mom and I have a relationship better than I can ever remember and today I got my paycheck – two times bigger than normal on half as much work – oops, I mean play. I feel so strongly about my discovery that I am making it my mission to spread the word about The Secret and how I’ll do it is equally exciting. I plan on giving a purchased copy of the The Secret DVD to my family and friends with the understanding that they can watch it as many times as they want or until they understand it. Afterward they must think of someone they know that can benefit from its teachings and give it to them as a gift – with the understanding that they too must do the same – pass it along.
Thank you Rhonda, for everything! There isn’t a day that goes by that I’m not giving love, gratitude and joy to everyone I know, meet and love – Thank YOU!!
