A new personal computer
My story happened way before The Secret movie or book has been made. It was six years ago, in 2004, I was 16 and I was in my first year in the university. My personal computer was a slow 386 machine which was given by my aunt five years ago. Since the paperwork demanded in the university was a lot, I had always wished for a new personal computer. I could never afford it because it was more than $1,000 back then, and I was only a first year university student. I couldn’t ask it from my parents because they had been paying a lot for my and my sisters’ hefty school fees already.
I remember one day in January that year, I was in a computer cafe and told myself, “I would like to have that computer, and I believe it is mine already.” Then I let it go. After two months, my uncle who worked abroad called me and said, “My boss just gave me a bonus; we’d be able to buy the ‘Pentium 4 computer’ you’ve always wanted.” As a gift for my birthday. I was like: first, I never told him or anyone (even my parents) that I was badly wanting a new personal computer because the old computer is still fully functional; second, how can he possibly know about me wanting a computer with Pentium 4 processor (which was the latest and fastest processor back then)?
I was like, “Oh, my GOD!!!” Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I never asked my uncle how he got the idea, but I just thanked the universe. Up until now, I still couldn’t fathom what happened. I told everyone including my parents, my aunt, my sisters, and I was like, “You’re sure, none of you told him anything about it?” And no one really told my uncle.
I have countless stories where I unknowingly applied the principles of The Secret, and many great things happened. All I know is that the law works like magic, and once it happens it feels so, ugh, I can’t explain the giddy, magical feeling inside because of joy, astonishment, and surprise. Until now, I still say Wow! every time something like that happens. I’m still applying the law for more magical moments in my life.
