Faith is just as easily said as done.
I am a young girl, who is currently at that stage in my life where I am finding what it is that I truly believe in. Searching for “the meaning of it all” can be a little overwhelming, and as a young teen, I have been skeptical of pretty much all ideas that have crossed my path. I found out about The Secret not too long ago, and as expected, I was skeptical. At the time, many horribly unfortunate circumstances took root in my life, and I became exhausted with believing that it was all left to chance. I wanted something to believe in. I picked up The Secret again, and told myself ‘what do you have to loose?’
The reason I post this story, is because that moment was when my life began to change. For those of you new to The Secret, you may be looking for proof that it works with the stories people post on here, and as someone who now has complete faith, I wish to help spread some certainty to you 🙂
When I first began to follow the teachings of The Secret, I was so impatient and in such a hurry to receive what I wanted, that by the end of the week, when I didn’t get it, I began to feel as if this “Secret” business wasn’t going to work. Then I allowed myself a moment to really think about what The Secret was. This is not about writing constantly that something is coming to you, it is not about saying ‘thank you’ as you walk…because simply doing those things weren’t helping me. I realized that this is about believing. Anyone can write things on paper and think words. I was rushing and not putting time into believing I had what I wanted. The universe could feel my impatience and fear, and I continued those bad thoughts.
After that, I took things calmly, because there was no need to rush. The Universe would bring me what I wanted. “Like a child” I began to imagine that I already had what I asked for, and no longer worried about it. When a kid is playing Indian or princess, they are not thinking in the back of their head “Hey, I’m not really an Indian” or “This is just a dress, I’m not really a princess” while they are playing. They simply run around the yard with mud on their face, or sit on a ‘throne’ of pillows as if it is true, because to them, it is.
I thanked the Universe for what I wanted every day 🙂 And I ‘ran around the yard’ and did not think about not having what I needed, because I did. Today I have all the things I have asked for, and I am not surprised, because to me… this happened weeks ago. I am as happy as I have ever been. Be a kid. Make believe. If you can just be happy, be grateful and thank the world for having what you want… you will get it. There is nothing that cannot come true.
So don’t rush. Know you have it. What do you have to loose?
