I learned “The Secret” many, many years ago and when the movie and the book came out I rushed to get them both and thought it was great and was very pleased that this information finally came out to reach “the masses”.
My story is about my Mom, who was a very sweet, kind, and loving person, who never said an unkind word about anyone. She passed away at age 62 after a long illness, so her passing was a blessing for her, but for me and my 3 sisters it was very difficult because we love and miss her so much.
My mother loved butterflies, and she had quite a few pictures and things around her home that had butterflies on them. And even though I think of my Mom often, because of her love for butterflies I also vowed that whenever I saw one I would think of her and send her what I called a “butterfly kiss”.
I guarantee there is no exaggeration to this story. A few years ago I was sitting in my back yard and I noticed a cute little yellow butterfly coming close to me, and so of course I thought of Mom, and for some reason in my mind I wished that I could get a “butterfly kiss”, even knowing that would be wishful thinking as I watched and smiled as the little butterfly quickly flew away behind me. However, about 5 seconds later it came in front of my face and stuck right to my lips…
Of course I was stunned and froze, awestruck at what was happening – it’s wings opening and shutting, opening and shutting right in the middle of my lips, as if to say, “You asked for a butterfly kiss – so here I am.” Wish granted. Then about 10 glorious seconds later it flew away…
I wept for joy as this little yellow butterfly flew away in the sunshine, and humbly sat there for a long time in such total wonder and awe of the whole experience on the most beautiful day of my life.
