HAVE FAITH: IT WORKS!!
I of course want to being by thanking God, my creator and He who gives all things. I believe the LOA happens because it is really faith in God that we are all using. I would also love to thank Rhonda and her team who we owe so much for writing this amazing book The Secret. Thank you!!
My whole life Iâve felt there was something missing, that there must be something better out there for me or that I needed this awesome moment of self discovery. And thatâs what The Secret gave me. Instead of being dissatisfied, I needed to be grateful for everything God gave me and not only would I get everything I ever wanted, but also would be so overwhelmingly happy.
I had read books of different types that had mentioned this power but never had any book before put into words what was happening or why this things that were asked for would come true. Now Iâm so glad to know that love and faith are behind it.
My story starts in the summer of 2012. For two different summers I have babysit for the same family during the day. The family has an amazing book collection and from time to time I would read some of the books they had. One day on their shelf I saw the book The Secret. I had no idea what it was, but I thought that the cover looked interesting and familiar for some reason. I thought at first it was a romance story I had heard about. Anyways I ended up opening it and reading it. I was immediately drawn in. Everything made perfect sense and over the course of a week I read the whole thing and began make gratitude lists like crazy.
I have in general an awesome life, but I’ve always wanted to find a soul mate. You know, as in you meet them and you just KNOW IT! So I made my list, on plain paper with all the qualities I wanted him to have down to the little details. I began right away to practice the gratitude of having him in my life.
So as the summer wrapped up, I moved into my new apartment to start the school year. I loved my apartment building as there are a lot of fun college students that live here. I kept on dreaming, and one September day I MET HIM. I was going into the laundry room to grab my mail, I had it in my hand and was packing it up when he walked in. I felt like a hammer was dropped on me. I JUST KNEW. I briefly said hello and introduced myself. He said hello too and said his name was Kevin. When we shook hands it felt magical.
So then like any shy girl would do, I ran to my apartment celebrating and felt I could just die from excitement! I had no idea if he felt the same way or not. I would see him time to time but was too shy to talk to him really so I sent out another plea to God. âLet him come to my door and ask me it, from there we will hit it off.â
Trust me, at first it was a huge struggle. I was so use to focusing on what I didnât have that it was hard to be positive and visualize my happiness. I practiced it from September through October and it wasnât happening, so I began to have doubts. I came to this website weekly to read new stories and keep the faith. But still I was struggling, so I looked back to the book for advice. I realized that I was wishing and focusing on not having it yet! I was the one keeping it from being in my life!!
So what did I do? Visualize!! I slept on one side of my bed and imagined him being there with me and talking before we went to sleep. I felt his hugs and kisses, his compliments and his love. I am a huge romantic, and I love dancing so I would always imagine us dancing to slow songs or sitting by a fire over the holidays. I felt the absolute love he had for me. And it was so freeing. I exuded positivity and happiness and felt complete.
Well, do I have some amazing news for you!!!!!!!! Today, November 12, 2012, Kevin came to my door. He knocked just as I imagined he would, I invited him in just as I imagined I would, we talked and he asked me out just as I imagined he would!!!! And we hit it off, just as I had always pictured! We talked today for over three hours. We talked about everything, and we were both so happy. Toward the end of our conversation he even held my hand. When he left, I cried tears of joy and happiness. I canât wait to experience an awesome relationship with him from here on out. Iâm so excited and grateful. Thank you so so so much Lord! Thank you Rhonda! THANK YOU!!
