As I share my story, I am actually feeling such joy and gratitude in my heart. After many years of thinking and pondering about a higher power and life questions, The Secret came to my life about 10 years ago. I was not using or sharing it much because I was not capable of explaining it clearly and it gave a weird feeling to some of my friends.
Back then I was in college in Beijing, China. My family was doing OK but there was no way to afford a luxury house. But for some reason, I really liked a picture of a condo. It was white in color and brick, which is a style that I had never seen before in Beijing. I saved it as my laptop background, and would sometimes think about how it would be so nice if I could live in one like that. My roommates even asked me where it was and I really did not know.
Fast forward 2 years. I came to America for my MBA, and shared an apartment with my friends. Our apartment was one of 4 apartments in the building, 2 upstairs and 2 downstairs. The building looked like a condo from the outside, and it was white brick. The buildings next to ours were red and brick, only ours was white in the middle. I then realized, wow, was this in my picture? It looked exactly the same!
Now, it has been 10 years since I came to Louisville KY, USA. I started to learn more about The Secret and become more disciplined of mind. A couple months ago, I asked the Universe to show me a sign by bringing something, anything that I was not expecting, in 24 hours. I said to myself, “Thank you Universe, I do not know what will happen in the next 24 hours, and I have no attachments to what will happen in the next 24 hours. Work your magic as it should be as I am just open to receive whatever you bring my way”. I really felt the trust, the excitement, and true appreciation that something would happen.
Nothing special happened the next day, and I was trying to focus on what I needed to do without searching for anything. Late that night, my Facebook “ding” showed a message I was tagged in. I had won free Mary Kay eye pads from my husband’s cousin during a drawing!!
I had purchased some items from her and I did not even know she was doing a giveaway or a drawing! I was not even there watching her do the live drawing. Wow, I was extremely excited, and that was for sure a sign!!!!
Another magical experience happened shortly after this, and it totally enhanced my belief. My husband and I were planning on shooting some videos, and I mentioned briefly that it would be nice to have a GoPro so I could do some work myself. Two weeks later, I was on a Zoom meeting for the end-of-year group prize drawing for a local real estate investment group I am a member of. There were a lot of great prizes, and I loved a lot of them but I did not win any. Then I quickly wrote down, “I am happy for the people who won! I am happy and grateful for my winning. I trust you, Universe.” Then the next the host announced a drawing for the winner of a GoPro! My heart was beating fast, but I was calm. The rule to claim the gift is to claim that you are there within 10 seconds of the announcement of your winning as we were on a Zoom call. The host went through drawing three winners and none of them were there to claim the prize. Finally, the host drew my number! ” I am here!” I received a GoPro!!
I am so happy and grateful that I have opened my mind to see these signs! I am sure there are more better and bigger things coming into my life as reality since now I have such big intentions! Thank you!
