Believing In Myself.
When I was a young girl, my father came home with The Secret DVD and he was very excited about the discovery he had made that would change our lives. He lived by it every day of his life and in a few months, our life changed. We soon moved into my mother’s dream house, went from one car to four cars and had an abundance of health, wealth and happiness in our family. I was too young to understand the power of my mind and how The Secret would change my life years later.
My parents got divorced just before my 18th birthday and once I had finished school I looked high and low for a job to support myself. I had eventually resorted to night-club promotions until 2 am in the morning. One evening, while working in a night-club I was sexually assaulted by one of my co-workers. Forced down and intoxicated, with a blur memory of anything that had happened.
I went through months of therapy and tears all the time. I hit a serious stage of depression and constantly thought of suicide. I was lost and scared and I didn’t know how to get through the dark space I was in, in my head.
My family and friends stood by my side and encouraged me to be the best that I could. Five days after my incident had occurred, I was employed as a temporary data capture for the company my mother worked for. While going through the trials and errors of my life, I came across The Secret once again. My mother always swore by it and while I was at my lowest point, she opened up my eyes to the law of attraction. I wasn’t sure why being assaulted had happened to me and it was difficult to grasp the fact that it had happened and this man would unfortunately walk away, charge free of anything he had done to me, but as I began to believe more in The Secret, the more I found peace. I learned to trust again, to have faith in myself and all the confidence I had lost, slowly begun to return.
I started at my job as a temp, and in two months I was made permanent. By the third month of working for my company I was made Personal Assistant and in one year I have worked my way up to Fashion TV.
I never thought it was possible to turn over a new leaf after what had happened, I had lost any faith I had, but only when I had become open to my universe did I realize the power I had in my own hands, the power I had in my mind. At 20 years old, I have accomplished more than I could have ever dreamed of. I recently got promoted, I found peace to forgive the man who had assaulted me, which then brought me the closure I needed. The Secret taught me to let go of the negative feelings I had towards males, and channel my energy into finding a man that would be different.
I am now in a healthy, steady relationship with an incredible man who respects me and knows what I went through. He motivates me everyday and reminds me of what I am capable of.
I have no one and nothing else to thank but The Secret. It opened up a whole new world to me and taught me to ask for what I want, and once My Universe gave it to me, I learned gratitude, to always say thank you.
I live by The Secret and I am currently reading The Magic. I am beyond grateful for everything I have in my life, and every one I have in my life. The Secret has taught me the value of gratitude. I look back at where I started, what happened to me and I realize it has taught me that no matter what you come from, or what has happened to you, every day is a fresh start. A new beginning.
