In a short period of time I went through a ton of life changes. I was in the Christian ministry and had founded and Pastored a church. Was married for 12 years and had a solid job. In the span of three years I was divorced and at the same time in a terrible court battle for ownership of our church building. I was battling on two fronts and suffering some serious emotional and financial loses.
The divorce was finally final and I lost the building and had to file bankruptcy. Then the church collapsed and dissolved and I had absolutely no desire to pick up the pieces. I was done and emotionally dead like fried chicken. The resentment in me toward my ex-wife, ex-church members and those that were victorious in purchasing the church building was deep and solid. I truly had hatred for all three. Depression finally moved in, unpacked its bags, and set up a beautiful penthouse in forefront of my mind. I wished my home was decorated as brilliantly as Depression had my mind.
There was a small glimmer of faith. I continued to jog and became and still am an avid roller skater, four wheels, none of that inline stuff. These two things were my outlets. I began wanting to rebuild my life. So I figured I would start in the financial department, which lead me to reading the book Rich Dad Poor Dad. In which there was a lot of discussion on the mind being your greatest asset. It was great because I was so ready to evict depression, plus it wasnt paying rent.
In the back of the book was a bibliography which lead me to As a Man Thinketh which lead me to Think and Grow Rich All had the theme of thought being a creative force. Through all of this I attracted to me a friend, Ray, who was on the same path. She continually, for months, told me to go out and buy The Secret DVD. I resisted as all good depressed folk do. She finally just gave me her copy to watch and it still took me a week to watch it.
Well the night I watched it, by the time I got to The Miracle Man story, I had jumped off my couch, screamed and was running around the house shouting because of the break through!! Scared my cat to death, she ran and hid under a chair until I came to just an ecstatic state.
Since then I have used The Secret daily. Purchased my own copy of the DVD and read the book morning and night. I am at the point now where I can see negative thoughts coming into my mind and kindly escort them out, sometimes not so kind. And depression and I are in court because I evicted him without giving him a two-week notice and sold all his furniture to my good thoughts.
Also, please tell Lisa Nicols that she can counsel and talk with me anytime. She fine as Dinner China
