Having grown up a Christian Scientist, the principles of The Secret were really no secret to me. However practicing them sometimes fell by the wayside.
As a result of the credit crises towards the end of 2008, my business lost a number of lucrative contracts, and by 2009 I was close to bankruptcy. I was reading The Secret at the time, and I just told myself that there was abundance in the universe and that there could be no shortage of anything.
Even though I was working harder and harder, things just got worse. I just kept focussing on the fact that the Universe would move people and things so that the abundance that was there would manifest itself.
While chatting to a retired family member of mine one day that I had not spoken to in years, he offered to assist me in marketing my business with no request for any compensation of any sort. It was the start of the manifestation of my abundance. Things and people just started falling into place and the business just started pouring in – with much less effort from my side. Even though I was still working hard, I actually had time for a life too. This was incredible.
This past year has been a record year and there are many more prospects on the horizon.
It just proves that although hard work helps, it is less the effort and more the attitude, gratitude and complete faith that makes things happen.
I have also healed many diseases using the principles of The Secret. The toughest of which was a herniated disc in my lower back. I had been suffering for years and eventually after a session of physiotherapy ended up unable to walk. My friends rushed me to hospital where the doctors did an MRI and said that I should stay there overnight so that they could operate on me first thing in the morning. I was not about to allow anyone to operate on me, and went home. I spent the next 4 months in agony in bed and using positive thinking and the assistance of a Christian Science practitioner (who also uses these principles in metaphysical healing) healed myself. I have not had a single recurrence of lower back pain since. It has been 8 years.
These principles work. We only have to claim for ourselves what we want and then be thankful for the fact that they are already there for us to receive.
