Dreams do come true!
Deep down, I knew the power of The Secret existed even before I’d heard of it. In 2005, I was rediscovering myself as a “newly single” woman after 24 years of marriage. I married young (19) and was a mother at age 21. I was in a verbally/emotionally abusive relationship, but thought that was the way things were…always walking on eggshells and never able to be myself. In 2004 when I finally had the nerve to leave the abuse, I felt a sense of calm and relief that I didn’t imagine existed. In the spring of 2005, I started dating for the first time since high school…very strange and ackward. I began to wonder if I would ever find my “soulmate” and felt a little anxious.
One day while driving along a country road with my favorite band “Moody Blues” on the radio, the song “I know you’re out there somewhere” came on. I felt a tingle run throughout my body and a sense of calm and peace, knowing that “the man I would share my life with” would come into my life and I didn’t need to even wonder how or why…it would happen. After that moment, I enjoyed life more, not putting a timeline on meeting my soulmate, but anticipating it. A few months later while at work, I was listening to the radio in my office. For some reason, every song made me want to dance (I’m not a dancer). I told my co-worker “I want to go dancing tonight!” None of my other friends wanted to go but my co-worker humored me and she and her husband went with me to hear a local band that night. I’m not the type of person to go to nightclubs/bars, so this was out of my comfort zone, but I didn’t care…I wanted to dance!
The three of us walked in, found a table and enjoyed listening to the music. When I looked across the room, I noticed a very handsome man smiling at me. He came over, asked me to dance and the rest is history! When we first set eyes on one another, the entire room disappeared. As we talked, we realized how much we had in common, loved antiques, had the same values and attitudes about life, etc. We talked on the phone the next day for two hours and went on our first date two weeks later. As we talked, it felt like we’d known each other for years. Six months later we were married and we will be celebrating our five year anniversary this June. I learned that first night to listen to my inner voice and “dance”.
Recently, while going to yard sales with my husband, I saw “The Secret” in a box of books. The cover entrigued me and something told me to buy the book, although I had no idea what it was. When I started reading, I coudn’t stop. I decided to do a small “test” and pictured receiving an email at work from a friend I hadn’t heard from in months. I didn’t think to myself “I hope I hear from Sheri”, I pictured opening my emails and receiving one from her. Sure enough, there was an email! I almost jumped out of my seat. I’m a little bit of a skeptic so I was overwhelmed. I tried it again a few weeks later on a trip to the coast. “I’m going to find a dime today” I told myself. Sure enough while waiting in line at a restaurant, my husband and I looked down at the ground and he said “Look…a dime!” Today was the kicker….I had wanted to find a copy of “The Secret” on DVD. I told myself, “I’m going to find a copy at a yard sale”. Sure enough, I was drawn to a box of DVD’s at one sale and there it was, just like I had pictured. I’m ready to move on to bigger things now that I know I just have to believe….the sky’s the limit. Actually, the universe is the limit! Thank you!
