When I was browsing through stories here, I thought how most of the stories start with finding the perfect guy. At that time I told myself I would definitely write something different. But if I am honest with myself and start from the beginning, then surely the first time The Secret revealed itself to me was the time when applying it and I managed to get hooked up with the only guy I have ever wanted to be with. I was astounded at how marvelous the book really is.
I got the book as a gift from my uncle and every day I would read a li’l bit and believe everything there. So one day, I thought of testing the authenticity of it and it passed in flying colors. I will not elaborate on this part but there were quite a few hurdles in the way of us getting together but somehow it happened so easily and surprisingly within days!
I became an avid believer. But my belief started wavering when I didn’t get selected in two of my campus recruitments. It was a huge deal for me as I knew I deserved to get through. Things started going downhill from there. Even though I got into another good company I couldn’t shake off the feeling of failure no matter how much I tried. I stopped living and started surviving.
I was miserable and I discarded The Secret. I kept thinking how stupid I was to ever believed in it and thought that we were together only because we wanted to be and that is all there it is to it.
Two years passed since then and I almost forgot about it. I became an utter disbeliever. But then things were going so bad that one day I decided to re-apply The Secret in my life to usher in what I wanted. And that was getting a transfer to my hometown. I was in such an awful mental state that I thought nothing worse could happen and there is nothing to lose even if The Secret disappoints me. So wholeheartedly, I started following the steps of The Secret.
And it worked!
The thing I asked for was almost impossible but then it happened!
What I learnt from all this is that the mistake we all do, is we start having apprehensions about a negative outcome and we lose hope! And that keeps us from feeling the joy of receiving, which is one of the key parts. Therefore at the end, we don’t receive what we ask for.
One more thing what I feel we don’t do properly is that we don’t ask for anything in particular. Most of the time our thoughts are ambiguous. So we have to be specific about our needs and then I am sure the universe will deliver.
And whenever I have any doubt, I keep reading the numerous stories on the website, as they reinstate my faith. 🙂
The Secret is awesome, we just have to completely believe in ourselves and in it!
