Had been using LOA all along w/o knowing it
I was first told about “The Secret” about 3 months ago. The funny thing is, two different friends of mine who do not know each other both recommended the book to me in the same week. I took that as a sign that I should purchase the book and get what I could out of it. Both of my friends had great things to say about the book and felt it would “help me”(mostly about feeling down in general, especially about my love-life).
Once I started reading “The Secret” it gave me a sense of hope that Id been needing for a long time. I have learned that The Secret and using the LOA is definitely something that takes time and practice. I still find myself thinking in my old negative ways from time to time, so I pull out the book and start reading. I have to remind myself, “Hey, stop thinking like this. You can choose to think positively! Life doesn’t have to be a pity party.”
Once I began to learn and understand The Secret more, I had such a strong realization that hit me like a bolt of lightning one day. I HAD BEEN using the LOA and The Secret throughout my life, but using it in the wrong way, without ever knowing it. For example, after I had broken up with my boyfriend of 3 years, I learned of a new girl he began seeing. I always (for some reason) thought about and pictured this girl becoming pregnant with his child. It was all I could think about, and to say that it had become my biggest fear is an understatement.
Needless to say, within a few months, she became pregnant. I was devastated beyond words. Today, I have moved on and wish them well, but I see how in that situation, all of my negative thinking and focusing had affected my life. All I ever did was think about this girl becoming pregnant to the point to where I would have dreams of it happening. As it says in “The Secret”, you have to think about and focus on WHAT YOU WANT. I was thinking about and focusing on my biggest fear and what I did NOT want, and Bam! It happened. From today forward, I am only going to focus on what I want in life.
To whoever is reading this: I hope my story can remind you to never focus on anything negative in your life. Don’t worry about other people or compare yourself to them. All we can worry about is ourselves, so keep your positive thoughts and energy on the great things that you want in your life.
I can’t wait to see the new ways that The Secret can bring happiness to me!
