Activate A Feeling!
I was about 15 years old when I read the Secret. “That’s what I’ve been saying!!” I said out loud once I had finished reading only a few pages! Thinking to myself I thought, “Who else can wrap their mind around this?” My mom was the first one to trust and believe enough to hear me out. “Fine. I want less bills” she said. “Focus on what you want then” I told her, not on what you don’t want. Maybe think about getting checks in the mail.” With a Fatima Maia sarcastic tone, she said “I want checks in the mail.” I knew that was not it and it need not to be forced, but still I felt like I wanted to just tweak her words to activate a feeling of belief inside her. So I told her “Pretend like you know you are really going to get a check in the mail”. I said it with a big smile of knowing on my face as I knew that the next words she would say were from a clear and carefree place. “I am getting a check in the mail” she told me.
I think you can you guess how the story unfolds?
