My mother introduced me to The Secret in 2008, and after watching the movie I immediately knew that this was the right stance to have on life. It just felt so right and completely resonated with my soul.
Ever since, I have been using The Secret to attain what I want in life. I start by looking around and being thankful for what I have and try to see the good in all. Each night before I go to sleep I visualise what I want, how I would feel if I had that, and what it would look like.
I attracted my first ever boyfriend to me that year, who I am still with today. I visualised all of his characteristics that I wanted him to possess, and wrote it down on paper, which I would read to myself every day. I visualised what it would be like having this person, how they would make me feel and all the sorts of things we would do together. This dream man was bought to me by The Secret shortly after. And guess what? He possessed and still does every quality that I outlined on that paper! Wow! We are still happy as ever together and I truly believe that we will be for a very long time.
Another major impact that The Secret has had on me was when I was studying Fashion Design at university. As part of second year, we were given the opportunity to apply for an exchange semester abroad at the Fashion Institute in Amsterdam. Everyone of course applied, but they were only going to allow the top three students of the class to attend. I prayed and visualised myself in Amsterdam studying every single day, as I so badly wanted this opportunity. The day came when we were all notified, and I was in the top three! I was going to Amsterdam! I was so ecstatic and of course knew that this was all because I knew how to apply The Secret.
Whilst on exchange in Amsterdam, I decided to try and get an internship at a European Fashion House. I applied for no one else but my favourite designer based in London. She has been around for years, is very well known, and even contributed to the punk movement of the 60s! I didn’t even bother applying for anywhere else as I believe this puts out an energy into the universe that states that you do not feel you will get the other position. I believe you need to act as if you completely already have the spot, so I emailed the general enquiries contact of which I included some basic work, a cover letter and a CV (I hadn’t really done much fashion industry work at this stage). I then printed off a photograph of this favourite designer and stuck it next to a photo of me, as if I was in the photo with her, meeting her. It was the first and last image I saw before I went to bed and woke up in the morning, and I continually visualised being there, working at the London studio with this designer herself.
Just two days later, I got an email response stating that they needed one more person in the studio to come help prepare before Paris Fashion Week. I was so stoked!!! They even said that they usually only take interns for three months minimum but would make an exception with me! (I had previously noted that I could only attend for six weeks as I had to go back to Australia and finish my degree). I couldn’t wait!!
The experience was so amazing and on top of all of that I was chosen to work in the Paris and London Showrooms before each show, and then I assisted at both the fashion shows at London and Paris Fashion Weeks! It was great! I had the time of my life and it’s all thanks to The Secret. I now have my very own real photo with my favourite designer too!
I have recently graduated from my degree and am looking for a job within the fashion industry here in my city. Even though I still have not found one, I visualise every day the kind of job I want, how it would look and how I would feel when I had it, and sincerely know in my heart that this job is just around the corner waiting for me.
If you can think it, feel it, and dream it, then it is manifesting right now. A slight change in attitude is all you need to turn your life around and live in great abundance. Just try it… it works!!!
