It just feels right
I’ve been using the Secret for some time now. I read the book/watched the movie a few years ago, and have a made a conscious effort to apply it in every aspect of my life. I was unhappy with my job…I am now in one I ADORE. I wanted my own place (no more roommates)…I live in a cozy one bedroom.
One area I always had trouble with was romantic relationships. It always seemed that when I would enter one, things wouldn’t be as I imagined, and although the guys were good men, they were ultimately not for me. I’d always avoided using the Secret in relationships, or at least not consciously (if that makes sense).
Enter Q (that’s what I’ll call him). Q was a friend of a friend. We met one weekend during a visit of his here, but nothing more than a ‘light’ friendship came of it between us. At the time he had a girlfriend, while I was dating someone else. He was sweet, and it was obvious we shared many interests/hobbies, but after he left, we didn’t speak again.
Meanwhile, my dating situation came to an abrupt end. It caused me to do some deep reflecting on what type of vibes I was sending to the universe/God, and I decided to create some affirmations. I didn’t know what to expect, as I had never used the affirmations so clearly before (I wrote them down, read them out loud almost every day). The affirmations were quite hefty. I would meet the man I would fall in love with and marry by August 31st. He would make me feel special. He would be kind, intelligent, funny. Silly, girly stuff, that made me feel like an idiot for even writing down.
Fast forward a month or so later. Q’s and my mutual friend mentioned Q in a conversation to me, and I said to say “hi.” Instead of passing the word along, this friend said “Tell him yourself”, and passed along his screen name. I did so, and Q and I have not let a day go by now without speaking to each other.
As we spoke more and more (moving to Skype), our conversations and friendship grew deeper (he’d also ended it with his girlfriend). I began to develop feelings. I just knew Q was the one I was speaking about in my affirmations, and I tweaked them a bit to reflect this, and everything began to fall in line. I won’t lie and say I never had my doubts about what might happen, but I tried my best to keep unwavering faith. I re-read the Secret, and I kept reminding myself of how thankful I was to even have our friendship, as well as for everything else in my life.
Q was planning another trip to visit our friend, but it just so happened our friend couldn’t let him stay at his home. Instead, he and I planned for him to stay with me. It was during his stay that he actually, yes seriously, confessed his love to me. I couldn’t believe it, it was like a movie. Even the way he did it was something I had always romanticized in my day dreams as a younger girl.
Q and I are together now, and of course I can’t predict what the future holds, but I can only hope and imagine.
There is one thing I want to point out about my story, for all you out there like me… Rhonda mentions it, but everything about Q’s and my relationship felt COMPLETELY natural. There was no struggling, no fighting against the current, everything just fell into place with such ease. One thing I had always complained about in my previous relationships was that I felt as if I did ALL the work (i.e. all the pursuing). It was always a struggle and I hated it. I’d eventually get what I wanted, but it never felt good or right. With Q, everything felt great, everything was SO EASY. Even his staying with me during the trip, it was just a prompt from the Universe for me to take, and I did.
Just believe, and tune yourself in with God, the Universe, everything. The signs and signals are there for everything you want. Oh, and finally, remember: it will just FEEL RIGHT!
