How the Secret Affected Me
I had known a little about the law of Attraction from books I had read… such as the Conversations with God series, The Power of Intention, etc., but there wasn’t a step-by-step guide that inspired me like The Secret.
About a couple months ago, my art teacher asked me if I had read The Secret. I had not. He told me a little bit about it, and I said, oh! That sounds a lot like Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain! Which sort of switched the subject around and I had decided I really didn’t need to read The Secret since it sounded like I already knew what it was about.
Fast-foward a couple weeks. The Secret is on Oprah! I never watch Oprah! So, that weekend I decided that I am going to find the Secret. I went to the bookstore right next to my work… and there it was! A book, sitting all alone, on an empty bookshelf. I grabbed it and sort of walked around the bookstore with it.
All around me, EVERYONE was looking for this book. I saw people asking employees for it, and the employees told them that they were completely sold out. When I took it to the register, the man behind the counter asked me,”Where did you get this? I thought we were sold out.” It was freaky!!!
I began reading it at work that night. I instantly felt so excited! I am in control of my universe! I am manifesting my dreams! So far, “little things” had manifested. I was listening to this AMAZING song at a store and I didn’t know the artist. I jotted down a couple lines of the hook hoping I could search for it later. THAT NIGHT, I was at the bookstore again, and something told me, STOP! And look at that shelf you just passed! I picked up a ‘random’ cd, and just knew that this was the artist whose song I had heard earlier today. I bought it and listened, IT WAS!!!
My dad bought The Secret DVD, and I watched it twice before it was lent to some friends. It was amazing. I cried! It was a great reminder of somethings I had drifted from.
A couple days ago, my mother called me to scream at me about the phone bill. Apparently, I had gone over my minutes 5 times and had raised it to nearly 4 times what the amount should have been. Well, I knew that was impossible. I began to stress about the bill, but then I said, no. And I began feeling the end result: I am so happy with how this phone bill turned out. Etc.
When I got home, my mom kept telling me about how when she was on the phone with them they would not listen to her and were so rude. She kept saying really negative things like, All these people want to do it take money from us. But everytime she said that, I said no in my mind. These are nice people, and they understand. Well, to make a long story short, I called and the phone bill was reduced to lower than it even should have been to begin with! And it took absolutely no effort on my part! The man I spoke with was kind, understanding, and did everything he could to lower the bill.
TODAY I manifested a gratitude rock. I had to choose between 2 pairs of pants while shopping. I used my intuition, and felt a really strong feeling to pick the one I was holding in my left hand. As I went to buy it, the lady checked the pockets, and said, Someone left a rock here! I began laughing, because I was reading stories on this site about gratitude rocks. I felt so joyful.
I am so happy that I found the Secret! I know that I am manifesting ‘big things’ right now! And I ask everyone reading this to bless me as I manifest my dream of attending art school in New York!
Love and abundance to all!!!
