I would like to start off by thanking Rhonda Byrne, the Universe, and ultimately, God. My brother shared The Secret video to me about four years ago and I would keep the message in my mind but eventually, I just forgot about it. I guess we all remember what we really need to when we run into bad situations.
I broke my right arm, specifically my humerus bone, on Good Friday which falls during Easter week. I remember waking up mad and I was angry throughout the day. However, I went to see a friend and on my drive back home I saw my now ex-boyfriend’s dog knotted around a post in his yard. I stopped and tried to let him follow me so she can untangle herself from around it and I slipped on a piece of board that was covering a hole to a well! My hand snapped against the post and I broke my right humerus. Half of my body fell into the well but I managed to get out.
The doctor recommended that I stay at home and rest so I had to miss classes and reschedule my exams. During the time I stayed at home, I cried throughout the day. I fell into a deep depression and started fearing that I would lose my boyfriend. I knew I was losing him because all I did was cry when he would come to visit me each day. He did try to make me happy but I just gave him negative feedback. We decided that it wasn’t working out and we ended our one year relationship. We broke up during my exam week and I barely studied, ate, or slept. I failed one exam and was not able to graduate with my friends. Everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong.
It was time for me to change for myself. Then, I remembered The Secret video and I watched it again. I started reading The Magic and doing the daily practices. I prayed a lot, too. Thank God I still had family and friends who stood by me and supported me. There were times when I felt like a burden to them because I needed help for simple things like tying my hair since I couldn’t use my right hand at all and I am right-handed.
I stayed at home for three months with my broken arm. I started changing during the second month and it created a big difference in my life. At first, it was a bit difficult to stay in a positive mood but I tried and believed that I would be healed and that everything would fall into place. I visualized and meditated daily. I watched plenty of self-help videos including The Secret whenever I felt like giving up. I read The Secret Daily Teachings and the bible too. I think believing was the most important. I had visualized being without my cast and I felt as though I didn’t have it. I thanked God every day for my healing and tried to keep happy by visiting friends and listening to music. Patience was indeed a virtue. We all want what we want as quickly as possible but if it were that way all the time we wouldn’t enjoy or appreciate it as much as when we do get what we wanted later.
Today, my cast was removed and I’m getting my diploma soon because they made me re-sit the exam. As for my “once” boyfriend, we always kept in touch, he still visits me and I think we will be getting back together soon. I guess God is saving the best for last. I really do love him.
The Secret helped me immensely and it works! I will keep having faith in God and keep practicing The Secret. Thanks to everyone who shares their stories! I read them every night and I’ll continue reading because they all inspire me.
