I Asked, I Believed, and I 100% Received.
My life is a true testament to the power of The Secret. I am a spiritual person and believe in the power of God and prayer, however I have always been open to the mysteries of the universe.
My sister introduced me to The Secret when I was going through a divorce after fifteen years of marriage. My life had radically changed. Finances became a huge problem with two kids and living on a teachers salary. We moved to a smaller place and I began living on my own for the first time in my adult life. Money so was tight that I often worried about paying the bills and putting food on the table. I took every extra job the school offered. Life was hard.
I began putting into practice the ideas of The Secret and immediately began a gratitude journal. I would begin my day saying thank you to the universe for everything that was positive in my life, even for everything little that seemed minute became something to appreciate. I kept a working journal that became my vision board for the future. I found solace in music and art and I wrote daily. I kept little notes on my desk at school with positive statements and reminders of all that was positive in my life. Every single time when I worried about money, by using The Secret I was always able to find a way to make it work or find that little bit to get through to the next pay check.
After initially reading the book, I began to look at different sections of it each day. I would randomly open the book to a section and find the message for that day. I would pray for the guidance and the lesson to be obvious and for The Secret to bring me the message I most needed at that time. I had to remind myself that when I was frustrated at how things were going, I was receiving what I needed and not necessarily what I thought I wanted at that time.
My life gradually got better. I visualized and kept a written list of everything that I wanted for my children and for myself. The negatives became fewer and my focus became stronger. I was convinced I could have the life that I so desperately wanted. I was able to take responsibility for my finances and have since worked on whittling down the debt from the divorce. My credit rating keeps going up. I havent had to work as many extra jobs to make ends meet.
Two years of following The Secret kept my sanity and gave me a hope that I was on the right path, it gave me confidence. I shared my book with family and friends. When a friend was using the book, I studied the website at night and read other peoples testimonies. My book became more and more worn with each reading! I had to create and forge new friendships post divorce. I reconnected with old friends.
I was having brunch with one of them and she received a text from a mutual friends older brother. I was great friends with this guy and had lost touch since high school. I knew he had moved overseas and had been living there going on ten years. Needless to say, I asked my friend what happened with him and she replied, “Hes back! Im getting you his number.” Everything seemed to click into place and I knew without a doubt at that moment that he was the person I was supposed to be with. I contacted him and we have been together ever since. We are exactly what the other had been looking for and most importantly what my kids needed. We are in a committed relationship going on two years.
We were able to buy a house together, get the kids a dog, and show them a healthy relationship. When we were moving I was packing and found the original list in the very first journal. Literally everything I wanted in life has manifested – it is almost unbelievable to me.
None of this could have been possible without implementing the ideas of The Secret. The most important element is having the unwavering belief that it will happen and not letting one ounce of fear and doubt enter the picture at all. Find the courage to ask, find the strength to 100% believe, and you will receive.
