I finished reading The Secret just over 2 weeks ago, and I can already see awesome changes in my life! I love reading the stories on The Secret website… I try to read a few every day for inspiration. Tonight I felt inspired to write my own story.
I was never much of a book reader, it always made me fall asleep after about 5 minutes. But life hadn’t been what I wanted lately (and now I see why!), so when a friend of mine wouldn’t stop talking about The Secret and insisting I read it, I gave in and rented it from the library. That night I snuggled up in bed with it, and couldn’t put it down! Everything just made sense! I could see why things went the way they did in my past, and I saw that I was in charge of my life. That night I told myself I had a new beginning.
Instead of dragging myself out of bed in the morning like I usually do, I saw myself getting up easily with lots of energy to start an awesome new day. And that’s exactly what happened! I woke up feeling great and decided to put the Secret to the test. I wanted a Gratitude Rock, and I decided it was going to find me that day. I remembered the story about the feather, and thought it would be a good way to find my Gratitude Rock. So all day long I visualized my rock. I had a clear picture of it in my head… white and sparkly, shining in the sun. I never let it leave my head. I changed the lyrics of songs on the radio so that they sang about my sparkly white rock. I really felt grateful for it, and was in the best mood I’d been in for a long time!
Well, after supper I decided to go sit in the sun and finish reading The Secret. I was getting very near the end, reading about The Secret to Life, and as it was telling me to do what brings me joy, I had a sudden urge to get up and do a cartwheel. I hadn’t done one in years, so I stood up and did a cartwheel. And it felt so good I did three more. When I landed I looked down at the grass and there was a patch of sunlight coming through the trees, just enough to sparkle up my white Gratitude Rock! The exact rock I had seen in my mind all day! I picked it up and it was like the rock was formed to fit in my palm!
Life just keeps getting better! Because that’s what I see in my mind. I am a photographer, but a year ago I dropped my camera in the river and have been without one ever since. Every time I saw something I wanted to take a picture of it made me sad and miss my camera. Now I see this was keeping me from getting my new camera! After reading The Secret, I hung up a picture of the camera I wanted and really felt it was mine already. I hung up lots of my own photography and felt really grateful for my awesome talent. And I thought about pictures I wanted to take, but I visualized myself looking at them already framed and hanging on the wall. I felt inside how great it feels to give my photos away as gifts, something I’ve always loved to do. After really feeling like the camera was mine for a few days, my Mom told me she cashed out the mutual fund my Grandpa left me 15 years ago because it was starting to lose money, and that I could use some of it to buy a camera if I wanted. I was overjoyed, but not surprised. The Secret works!
I am so grateful The Secret came into my life!
