Attracting the Good…. and the Bad
I’ve been a big believer of the Secret ever since I watched a discussion of it on the Oprah Show. I decided to immediately put it to use, and started seeing results almost instantly.
I managed to manifest a new relationship with a former boyfriend of mine, whom I hadn’t seen in 10 years. Things were working out great with us, until he was told he would be leaving for 6 weeks, for work. He’s a fisherman, and he fishes in very remote locations, with little-to-no access to any forms of communication (telephones, internet, etc). At first he was able to call me about once a week, whenever he was in port. If a few days had gone by with no phone call, I’d watch The Secret, tell myself that he was going to call, I would feel thankful for his call, and usually within a day or two he would call.
Then one night I had a dream that he just stopped calling. I woke up feeling awful, and instead of not letting it get to me, I just kept thinking about it. I told my mother about the dream, and I worried about it. I just kept worrying that my dream was going to come true, and without realizing it, I was beginning to manifest it.
First a week passed by with no phone call. Then two weeks. All I could think about was how he was NOT calling, and I kept noticing how my phone sat silent, and never rang.
Then it dawned on me. I had fallen into thoughts of what I did not want, and they were starting to manifest. I saw my mistake with such clarity that I felt like an idiot for not realizing it sooner. I knew things would be able to be reversed, so I immediately began visualizing him calling, and feeling very grateful for it, and feeling the weight being lifted off my chest. I imagined him having some viable excuse for not calling, like the payphone at port wasn’t working. It was getting close to 3 weeks without any call when I started to put this into practice. Anytime I had a few spare minutes I would close my eyes and visualize him calling, and having a good reason for not having called for 3 weeks.
A few short days later it happened. It was exactly 3 weeks and 1 day since he had called, when my phone finally rang and it was him. He immediately apologized for not being able to call sooner, because he was having a lot of problems with the payphone that was at the port, and he had put in $20 to talk to me for a mere 3 minutes. It was exactly the scenario I had imagined. I felt the weight being lifted off my chest, and the feelings of gratitude I felt were overwhelming. It was amazing to think that I could undo the mistakes I had done before.
Now I am much less worried about using the Secret, because I know that even if I somehow get off track, I can always use the Secret to return to the place where my dreams and hopes come true, and my fears no longer dominate my thoughts. Now my boyfriend and I are closer than ever, and he has managed to call regularly ever since.
Thank you so much for sharing the Secret with me, and giving me the confidence to use it to shape my life’s events on my own, without letting them shape me.
