Healing Is All About Believing
I first heard about The Secret in 2007 while watching Oprah, which is weird since I never have been the type of person to enjoy talk shows. After watching the segment, I immediately went out to buy The Secret book and DVD. Soon afterward, I got accepted into college and for some reason, I put away the book and placed the DVD on a shelf where they sat untouched until November 2012.
In November of 2012, I came home for Thanksgiving break and my sister who had recently been introduced to The Secret had me watch it with her and this time, I took it to heart and decided that I was going to live by The Secret. At the time, I had this pain in my side that had been there for two years. It started off as a pinching sensation, so I believed that I had once torn something and when it grew back, it left a bump or scar tissue.
However, the pain became more intense and I knew in my heart that I was going to need surgery. I was so wrapped up in this idea that I would need medical treatment that the pain kept getting substantially worse every day and after watching The Secret, I immediately knew that I was causing this to happen and so I began focusing on what it would feel like without pain. I stopped talking about the pain and started doing more activities and pretending that the pain was gone and in only three days, I felt as if my illness was never in my body to begin with and that is when I knew that I needed to live my life by being a more positive person and being grateful for what I have and live in the joy of the world.
I also want to thank everyone for their inspiring stories, which led me to try something I never thought of: restoring my eyesight. And in the future I plan to do bigger and better things to help myself and everyone that I can by sharing The Secret.
Thank you, thank you, thank you creators of the universe.
