How I met The Secret
This is my sweet and simple story… like everyone around here I was also a see saw personality dwindling between positive and negative moods. After discovering The Secret in 2009 my whole life changed.
I was living a mediocre life, following the herd, doing what was supposed to be the blooming market (and not my passion). On top of that I was betrayed twice in a love relationship, at least that’s what I used to think back then, and the mother of all miseries, I had self esteem issues; I was a huge plus, plus size which always affected my confidence no matter how well I dressed up I used to feel nobody will ever like me because I am FAT.
So one evening I was, as usual, depressed and cursing life for being so unkind to me… the “why me” drama, as usual when I felt I had hit rock bottom. Something motivated me to go to the bookstore. I guess the best things happen to us when we least expect it. Browsing through the much contempted self-help section, suddenly a book fell next to me. I picked it up and that was “The Secret”.
I randomly opened a page and by chance, which I now know was actually by LOA, was the page of Secret to Health, where all they spoke about was how wrong thoughts made people fat. I was awestruck for a moment at that coincidence and couldn’t stop myself from reading. I became so desperate that I just wanted to buy the book, but at that time I was unemployed so could not afford to buy a book costing Rs. 650.
I sighed feeling bad for me and then the moment I was about to curse God for not giving me the money to buy it, something in me asked me to stop and instead think as if I already know what’s in the book. That was wierd logic but it felt so real and convincing that i couldnt stop. I went home and slept.
Next day I was heading to get some breakfast when I just felt a nudge to take my pen drive along with me (which was unsual), but I did. In the cafe I saw a guy with his laptop, he was sitting ahaed of me so I could see what he was playing. And then I saw it – The Secret!! I was stunned. it seemed as if my excitement was so intense that he must have felt ticklish coz he turned back and smiled. I just walked to him and after a casual chat he gave me the movie in the pen drive. Yay I got my own copy of The Secret!!
Since then life changed. I visualise and use gratitude to alter my perspectives and here I am 2 years from then; money is not a problem now, I am yet to get my dream body, but the extra weight does not hamper my confidence anymore, and I have a very loving man in my life too.
So that was my story of how I met The Secret, will post more soon. Thanks for reading 🙂 happy manifesting!
