Thank You Rhonda Bryne For The Secret
My ex boyfriend and I had been together for three and half years before we went to Mexico. We had fallen in love when I was sixteen and he was nineteen, and had been together ever since. Through thick and thin, we spent those years together, the years when I was growing the most. Through a break up, an incident of infidelity, a bunch of big fights, too many little fights, we were still together after all that time.
We weren’t happy and we fought all the time over the smallest things. So we decided if we fought too much during our two weeks in Mexico, we would break up. Well, we fought too much. And we broke up. But after we got back, and I sat and thought about it, I didn’t want to break up. I had had an epiphany and I wanted to be with him forever. It didn’t matter to me that we didn’t have the same religious beliefs, or that I was a vegan and he was a omnivore. I just want to spend the rest of my life with him. But he wouldn’t have it. He had made up his mind.
So I spent about two months begging for him back. We talked everyday because it helped us.. a bit. But it was hard because it was preventing me from having a clear mind. I was basically doing all the things you shouldn’t do when you are trying to get your ex back; crying to him, telling him how much he’s going to regret it, talking about my feelings, blaming myself, belittling myself, talking to him too much, asking who that girl was he added on Facebook. It just pushed him farther away, and I was getting frantic.
One day I was sitting in the living room balling my eyes in utter agony. I begged for something to help me with all my heart and then my girlfriend texted me. She said, “You should watch The Secret, again.” And I said, “Do you think it will help?” And she said yes. I had watched The Secret many years before, but it had faded from my memory. So immediately I popped it in. After watching it, I was the happiest person in the world because I knew I was going to get him back.
The first thing I did was got out my journal, and started writing all the things I was happy and grateful for. Then I started writing “I am so happy and grateful now that..” and I would write about how my ex was my boyfriend again and he was in love with me and missed me everyday and wanted to be with me. Every day I did it. I would write it over and over again. I would imagine him in my arms again, us cuddling and watching movies like we used to. I imagined him talking to me in person about how he wanted to be with me again and us holding each other safely. To ensure my hope would never be lost, I watched The Secret a good three times a day. And I also had the audiobook. So I put it on my iPod and listened to it at the gym or in my spare time. It really helped!! Whenever I had any doubt, I would get rid of it and say, “I know now that I am receiving only good things and the things that I want.” or “I know, like I know, like I know that it’s on it’s way.” And it would make my hope come back.
My faith and hope got tested a lot. It was hard to stay happy all the time when we were still talking and he wasn’t the greatest with his words, so some things would come off harsh. Sometimes I would cry, but I would snap out of it and rewrite in my journal. Before I fell asleep at night, I would go through the day I had just had and erase all the bad thoughts and memories and replace them with positive thoughts and happy moments. I never let my hope waver. I knew he was coming back to me.
On one particular day (June 22, 2011), I was having quite a difficult day. I had a job interview that day, and I was really emotional over my ex. We got into a little fight over text message. After I had recovered from it, I wrote in my journal again and was being really positive, talking to the Universe about how I was sorry I was negative and how I was thankful for all the things I had to the point where I was in tears again. I went out to the store and got ingredients for one of my favorite salad dishes to make myself happy. When I came home, my ex had started texting me again then surprised me by saying, “Send me a picture of your pretty face. I want a picture of my girlfriend.” I asked him what he meant by that and he said, “We are back together again.”
I was so happy. I knew that it had been The Law of Attraction. I knew that the Universe would bring him back to me again because The Universe knew we belonged together. I am the happiest I have ever been. It took me a month and half to get him back. It felt long, but it’s so worth it.
No matter how much you get tested, no matter how much people question your belief always know that THEY don’t make your future. YOU DO! If you know it, you believe it, you have faith, it will come true. We are all the creators of our own future.
