I Used The Secret And Didn’t Even Know It!
I always have a way of ending up in the book store or the library when I’m pondering something in life and the right book pops out at me for some reason.
This exact thing happened to me with The Secret. I had gone into the library to choose a new audio book–just something fun for a summer car ride, but The Secret jumped out at me from the shelf above. After listening, I realized that I had already used The Secret almost four years prior in attracting my mate!
In 2009 I was laid off from my job, my grandfather passed away in a tragic work accident and then I went deaf in one ear from a virus. In January 2010 I was back to work and recovering from the loss of my grandfather and the loss of my hearing when a friend started planning a destination wedding in Mexico for the coming summer. I was single and lived alone, but had a relatively satisfying life and was looking for someone to share it with. I went on many very bad internet dates, I met a couple guys out on the bar scene, but none of this was working.
One night I had a dream and in the dream these words flashed before me like I was reading them as a headline in this odd negative view (dark background, lighter words). They were simply, TRUST IN THE LORD.
I do not consider myself to be a religious person, but since this was a strange place in my life this dream had an impact. So, every night, for weeks on end, before I went to sleep I prayed to God and to my deceased grandfather, to please help me find someone who I want to be with to go to Mexico with me for my friends wedding in June. I felt like praying for a husband was too much to ask for at the time, so I prayed for someone who I WANTED TO BE WITH. Over and over and over again, I said these words.
Sometime in mid-January I booked my reservation for my friend’s wedding in Mexico at an all-inclusive resort for TWO people. When I made the reservation for two and they asked for the second name to put on the reservation I said that I didn’t know yet and I’d call back when I did.
At the end of February, out of the blue, I got a phone call from a former boyfriend who I hadn’t seen or spoken to in the three years since we had broken up. When we dated before I knew I loved him very deeply and wanted to marry him, but we were young and both scared of marriage.
We met for lunch the next week and have been together ever since. We’re about to buy our first house and I’m using The Secret to help with that too!
