My health had been poor for many years. Having been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and suffering from horrendous headaches, I would spend hours researching my symptoms. Not realizing that I was just bringing more negative energy to my health, making it continually worse which then kept me researching! Oh, the cycle I was on!
As I was going through a divorce and feeling lousy about myself, I decided to re-read The Secret and try to get myself back on track. I have been a strong believer in the law of attraction for the past 15 years but had lost my way over the past few years. I couldn’t find my copy of The Secret book so when I went to order it again, I found Rhonda’s new book, The Greatest Secret. I ordered the Kindle copy and the Audible version and devoured it in 2 sittings. Then I read it again while tears of joy and relief streamed down my face.
I felt a peace like no other. No need to keep looking, I found it! And yes, it was in me all along. How simple, yet so profound. After having read hundreds of mindfulness and LOA (Law of Attraction) books, after attending so many retreats and paying for coaching and therapy, I can say without a doubt that my life will be forever changed because of what I now know. I was ready. I was Aware.
Soon after reading The Greatest Secret, I was challenged with an incident that brought on strong emotions of anger. Instead of pushing them away or running with them like I normally would, I welcomed them. I allowed them to come in and visit while remaining aware of them. I did not identify with them, I did not add extras to them, I did not judge them nor did I try to understand them. They were thoughts, feelings, and emotions, they were not me.
The feelings and emotions soon passed through me, leaving me with a peaceful feeling that I now know as joy. That experience, and many more after that, proved to me that I am not my thoughts or feelings. I am the one observing them. I can now allow and welcome emotions in and let them go. I am no longer consumed by overthinking and ruminating. I am now free.
My body pain and headaches have already begun to dissipate. Sometimes I can’t believe what is happening. I am in such awe of how our infinite awareness is there all the time, there are no real words to describe it. Tears now come often, even as I write this. They are like a release of emotions. Many, many years of them. I don’t judge them, I welcome them.
Thank you for your amazing insight, research, and content that literally woke me up and changed my life forever.
