From Death To Life…
8 months ago I lay on my bed vibrating from an over abundance of prescription drugs and alcohol trying to erase the devastation of learning my 9 year old son had just relapsed with leukemia. From the age of 2, my boy has been fighting cancer. After 2 Â½ years of remission, his cancer was back and I was destroyed. I remember that night not caring if I died. I didnât want to be dead, but I didnât want to feel any more pain either.
4 years earlier, my wife and boys left me in a home that was foreclosing. I lost my business, was in a debilitating car accident, found myself homeless many times and lost over $300k. The shame and guilt was so much.
My life has been motivated by pure pain. I have been addicted to drugs, homeless and had seen the walls of a jail cell more times than I would like to admit.
January 15th of this year, the morning after I found out my son had relapsed, I awoke from my drunken, pill induced sleep. I remember getting up and thinking to myself, âPatrick, this is the last time you allow life to take you to your knees. You have had many âbottomsâ in your life, this is the last bottom for us because the next may be your last.â
With my hand covering my face because the pain in my head was so great, I wandered into my front room desperately looking for something to help. I have been religious, but it didn’t sit well with me. I have always known that the âspiritualâ part of my life was missing, but didn’t understand what it meant.
A friend gave me The Secret movie 2 years earlier. I remember watching it, but not really taking anything from it. As my eyes darted around my front room searching for answers to keep me alive, I saw it; The Secret. I thought to myself, âI NEED something. Man, I NEED something right now to make sense and save my life.â
I watched The Secret that day maybe 5 times. I didn’t leave my apartment. I remember being in tears, hopeful tears; tears that I had never before encountered. My tears were always from loss and the pain of no hope.
That day, The Secret saved my life, literally, in every way. My relationship with my ex-wife now is awesome. IT SUCKED BEFORE. I have started 2 businesses of my own. I met an awesome lady and my life is honestly better than it has ever been.
The Secret saved not only my life, but more importantly, my soul.
My life is everything I ever wanted it to be. I listen to The Secret once daily, along with the Power. I canât ever thank Rhonda enough for creating awareness for me different than what I knew.
My life is nothing short of amazing now and I am so grateful and thankful for everything I have in life.
I love you Rhone Byrne 🙂
With all respect and love,
