I Have Achieved So Much!
Thank you to The Secret team for their guidance and for changing my life tremendously.
I’ve lost 25 kg in 7 months. Not just like that. I realized that by using the visualization technique and affirmations daily, my thinking had started to change.
One day, I just happened to buy a workout CD and I had also downloaded MyFitnessPal onto my phone. And I started counting calories and working out everyday. The results were immediate. I had my moments of frustration but all I had to do was read the book again,or to visualize, or read the stories here to find the inspiration to be positively motivated and I did it.
Next, I got straight As for my college finals.
I applied visualization for this. I usually sit down,and imagine me getting my results as if its happening NOW. As if I’m checking my results on the website, typing in the username and password and when the results page pops up, I see straight As. And during visualization, I try living that moment. So once I got the results I’d feel excited and I gave my heartfelt thanks to the Universe. I said Thank You till I felt it really deep in my heart. At one point I even visualized myself crying out of happiness after receiving my results.
And true enough I got straight As and I even started crying for no reason. I never felt more alive.
Normally I also do visualization for 7-20 minutes before I go to sleep, right after meditation or immediately after I wake up. I also use the spontaneous visualization technique. Spontaneous visualization is nothing other than visualizing at that moment when you want it to happen immediately. Like when I go shopping and I want to find a parking space, I close my eyes and visualize empty parking bays. And I always get parking, obviously.
Affirmations work really well if you have problems with self esteem or you want to change the way you think. I normally Google specific affirmations like “self esteem affirmations” and spend a few minutes in the morning to read out the affirmations and truly believe that it’s true.
My self esteem has certainly improved by tons. I use to hate myself a lot. But I’m slowly starting to see myself in a positive light.
And another time, I got chosen to attend an overseas university entrance interview. I am usually scared of interviews but I visualized myself having fun and doing well during the interviews. Surprisingly, I actually had fun during the introduction where we were split into groups and had an ice breaking session. And I did well for the interview as well
I’m really grateful and I just wanted to share my experiences so that people might be able to benefit from my techniques. It’s what I find easiest to do. 🙂
I’m still working on becoming a more positive person though I’m certainly more positive and optimistic compared to how I was a year ago.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to The Secret for making me realize the importance of gratitude, love and faith.
