I am grateful for the new me :)
I was first introduced to The Secret sometime in 2010 by my dad when I first entered Junior College. Back then I did not pay much attention to it and the main thing I knew about The Secret was “Ask and itâs given” a phrase that my dad would always tell us. I did not truly understand the meaning of it but one day when I was walking home from school I had a sudden inspiration to imagine the perfect grades I wanted for the major exams (GCE “A” levels).
I asked myself, how many A’s do I want on my certificate and counted 5?
A for Biology
A for Chemistry
A for Economics
A for Mathematics
A for Project Work
And a B for General Paper (something like an English Exam). I did not aim for an A because I thought that it would be more realistic to aim for a B since I was getting a sub-pass most of the time.
I imagined myself during the release of the results, that my name was on the Honour Roll and that my Parents and siblings were watching me walking up on stage and getting my results from the principle. I imagined how happy I was and how happy and proud my parents were for me and my achievements.
To be honest, I was jumping up and down and smiling with joy while I was crossing the road on my way home. I will never forget the feeling I had when I imagined having those results 🙂
Well, I did this imagination thing a few times afterwards, and to my surprise, studying was a breeze for me. Perfect grades came to me easily. (I got a few A’s during my preliminary Examination despite falling sick and when everyone said that they were stressed out studying) Unknowingly, I had applied The Secret. To imagine what I wanted, to love what I studied and I remember telling everyone that studying was fun and easy all the time when friends told me they found it difficult.
The day came where the results were to be released, for some reason I dressed up for the event because I wanted to look presentable and nice on stage when most of my friends were in shorts. Something inside told me that I was going to be on the honour roll that day.
When the names of the students on the honour roll were announced I was really nervous. My name was not on 3 distinctions list, nor the 4 distinctions list. I started to panic and lost a bit of faith. When a few of my classmates were called up because they obtained 5 distinctions I was scared but I told myself I CAN DO THIS. MY NAME WILL BE CALLED UP NEXT.
And guess what?!
The Emcee read out my name!!!!!
I WAS IN TOTAL SHOCK. I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT!
I looked up to the screen and saw my name there! I DID IT! I GOT 5 DISTINCTIONS!
I nearly cried and I felt the exact same emotions that I had when I imagined myself getting on the honour roll with 5 distinctions a few months back. 🙂
I was filled with gratitude for my perfect grades and I canât tell you how happy I was for the perfect grades I had. 🙂
Fast forward to 2012/2013,
The Secret came back to me again during the darkest part of my life. I am in University now and I met this amazing guy from one of the camps. We had this instant connection when we had to partner together for a dance. Things took off from there. We were happy, loving and he was always there for me. I have never felt so loved by someone (as a partner) before. But to be honest, I was not grateful because thought that things were happening to quickly. I did not believe that one was capable of loving another truly when they have just ended a relationship and he still missed her. I started having really negative thoughts and emotions towards him, got jealous and well you know the tantrums that girls give etc. And eventually, he left me.. Without him here, my life was in ruins and I cried every day. I was depressed and I even had thoughts of killing myself but I stayed strong till the holidays.
I came across The Magic while I was packing for a family trip to Japan. I read the book and started getting better. There were times when I still cried myself to sleep but most of the time I was at peace and the holiday really helped me to relax.
To cut this really long story short, I had the greatest surprise ever when I came back to Singapore. It was New Yearâs Eve and he came back into my life.. 🙂 It was least expected because during the trip I decided to let it go and move on. Well, a few months after that, he left me again. My negative thoughts were left unchecked and I had a desperate need for him which made him feel really restricted.
After reading The Power, The Secret and The Magic, I cut all contact with him and started to focus more on myself to be happy, have positive thoughts etc. It was really difficult at first because not contacting him made me worry about him being with other girls etc. But after a few months I am proud to say I HAVE MADE IT. I am a changed person now and all the cells in my body are saturated with gratitude. I am a very very happy person! A really positive one too! I feel awake, energised and alive every single day! I feel absolutely AMAZING every day!
I meditate every day and practice gratitude every day! I strongly believe that I will be leading the life that I dreamed of and that the guy who I hold close to my heart will be back in my life again. That we will be happy, loving and have the most magnificent relationship ever. All because I know The Secret and that the Universe is kind and friendly and will give us what we want. 🙂
