I got the book of “The Magic” from my mom about 3 months back. I had seen the dvd a few years ago and actually got a copy which I lost somehow. I was so excited to have the book in my arms since reading is my life. The first day I read through the first part of the book until I got to the Day 1 exercise. Because it was exercises, I felt too lazy to even do those exercises. I thought it was a waste of time.
I told myself that I’d do the exercise the next day but never did. Just last month I decide to dedicate my time into reading the entire book. Took it to bed with me and read the entire book in 4 hours non-stop. The next day I started with my day 1 exercise and today it’s my 23rd day.
Within this time period, things have so started happening. Just 2 weeks ago, my Blackberry BIS had expired & someone offered to buy it for me as I hadn’t a dime in my pocket.
In the same week on a Sunday, while walking to church in the blistering cold having to use my scarf to cover my ears and my nose from the strong winds, I got a lift from a woman from my church whom I’ve never even said “Hello” to.
I felt so good because I felt the grace of God.
I walked inside the church with no money at all that day because I didn’t have any. I sat next to this woman during the sermon and had little conversations here and there. When the time to give our offering came, this woman noticed that I didn’t have any money, and by the grace of God she gave me some to go place in the basket at the front. It was so overwhelming I almost broke down in tears.
When the service was over, the lady asked me where I stayed and she dropped me off at my doorstep. I was so happy. I couldn’t believe that the power of gratitude was working in my favour.
That same week, out of boredom I decide to log onto some random on-line dating site. I came across one and signed up. I ran into a picture of a handsome man who I thought would be compatible. I inboxed him a very casual message, one that suggested I wanted nothing more than friendship. I got a quick response and we started chatting.
That same morning, my “Magic” exercise was to be thankful for the things I’m hoping to happen that day. Strangely enough, the guy asked for my number and called me and we talked for a very good while. This past Saturday, we had our first date. He drove 1hr. 30min. just to have lunch with me and am happy to say that we’re so in love with each other. We can’t believe it’s happening to us. My last point on my Top 10 Desires was to find a good man who’s gonna love me, who’s sensible and God fearing since I had been single for 11months (by choice!!). I have found that man! He even told me to scratch that part out because he’s here to stay.
Early last month I saw a very cute outfit on sale and so wished I could have it. But I had no money at all.This past Friday, I went to town with my dad and went into the same store just to see if they still had it but with little hope. Mind you, I wasn’t hoping to buy it either. Much to my surprise, I politely asked my dad to get it for me and he gave me the money without saying a word. I walked to the clerk and paid, and she gives me half the money back with some small change. I was surprised and didn’t understand what was happening. Then she says,” This has been marked down again to 50% now.” I couldn’t believe it.
With the money that had just been handed back to me, I went back and got a new dress too!! I just had to tell everyone, this was ‘Magic’ indeed!
Today I just got a call and did a telephonic interview for one of the biggest companies in the country and I’m booked for assessment in 2 days. After being out of a job for over a year,I strongly believe that this is my due season, and it shall continue forever. My new man and I are going on our second date this Wednesday after my assessment to celebrate, because I already know that I got the job. Ironically, my workplace will be less than 30min from his place of residence.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a great book as “The Magic”. I couldn’t possibly live a day without it.
