Don’t Give Up! It Is Right There
I have been using The Secret for years now to acquire things like parking spots or other small things, much to the amazement of my friends and even to me! I continued to wonder, though, at the coincidental nature of them. Until now.
10 days ago, I lost my beloved dog Buddy. He got disoriented and wandered away from me. I did everything I could could to find him. I hired people and recruited friends to hang flyers, hired a dog tracker, rose before dawn each day to go to the places he was last seen and looked long into the night and left out his crate with his blankets and food. As each day passed by without him returning, my anguish grew and I knew I couldn’t live like this.
I remembered The Secret. I’m a rational person, even skeptical, and I trusted Buddy was a smart guy, hiding somewhere and too spooked to come out, and too big to be taken by coyotes or other predators in the area. It was perfectly feasible that he was still alive. And since I had done everything I could do, the only thing left was to use the mysterious powers of my mind, my thoughts, to attract him to me. Why not try?
After watching The Secret over and over, my hope grew and I started writing down how grateful I was for his return, and how grateful I was for so many things in my life. I realized that I had been growing increasingly negative in past months, and that I’d had no real attitude of gratitude or joy. This slowly started changing and I felt an overwhelming sense of peace come over me, not only certain that Buddy would return, but that the world is a wonderful and magical place, full of promise.
Day 8 of his absence was a Thursday, and I decided I would be bold enough now to tell the Universe I’d like him back by Friday so I could enjoy my weekend with him. I handed it over to the Universe to make this happen, and felt very much at peace. I visualized what it would feel like to hold him again, to smell his fur and hear him pant and whine. I went through the motions of hugging him and felt the joy surge inside me.
I had left some friends in the area we’d been searching while I went home to take a nap and prepare to camp out that night. I fell asleep watching The Secret, in particular the part about not losing faith, that the Universe is a Genie and that the thing we are believing we are about to receive is just about to happen, if we keep the good feelings that are attracting that thing to us. I woke up to a phone call from my friend, and as I saw it was him, I knew it.
They’d found him! I raced to the spot and there was my Buddy, a few pounds lighter, but nothing but a small scratch next to his eye to show for his 9 day adventure.
This has changed my life. I can think of no other explanation for the peace I felt. I know now how to make myself happy, how to not let small things ruin my mood, how to keep envisioning the things I want in my life, and most of all, how to have gratitude. This is what keeps me happy.
Thank you for sharing this life-changing message!
