It Just Keeps Getting Better!
Thank you Rhonda for both The Secret and The Power.
I began by watching The Secret DVD years ago and like many others, I then put it out of my mind. A year or so later I bought the book and got re-energized by its message. I figured that if I listened to it every time I was in my car, it would become automatic for me to think positively. And it did. Each time I listened I heard something new, however nothing major really happened. What I realize now is that I was still trying to control how I received any blessings that I desired. In fact the only time I really found it worked was when my daughter was continuously stopping too close to other cars and I told her, “You really should leave a lot more room or you’re going to get rear-ended if the car in front of you stops quickly.” She just looked at me and shook her head. I kid you not, two minutes later her car was hit from behind! This is not how I want the LOA to work in my life!
Now, it’s been a few months since that incident and I had The Power on my mind so frequently, but didn’t buy the book. In fact, I picked it up several times and then told myself I shouldn’t get it as I am in grad school and really should be reading my textbooks instead of reading for enjoyment. However, something made me strongly desire the book as I was driving home (a two hour trip) from work last week. I told myself that I would turn at the next light and if there was a bookstore, then I would buy the audio book and listen all the way home. And you know what? There was a bookstore a quarter mile from the turn. They had a copy of The Power and I listened all the way home!
I am so excited by what has been happening since I’ve started listening to the book! Every time I consciously think about something, there is some sort of reaction. Here are some examples:
* I hold my phone and think of someone and they call.
* I thought about my daughter’s epilepsy and how I really wanted there to be a cure. Immediately I passed a billboard with an advertisement for an Epilepsy Foundation that is making great strides with research. I also opened a local magazine and found an article about educating people about the disorder so that any stigmas could be educated away. Then, I read a book and the main character’s sister had the disorder and it showed me what a happy, healthy, productive life my daughter can live (and is living!)
* My previous boss quit and I now have one who constantly tells me how great a job I’m doing, and her supervisor gave me a bonus!
* I was waiting for a refund from a rather large return I had made at a store and said, as I walked to the mailbox, “I would like that check today,” and you guessed it, it was there. It had only been one week since I returned the items and I was told to expect the check in two to four weeks!
I could go on and on, great things just keep happening and I am so excited about how much more is in store. One thing that has really made an impression on me, and that has made my relationships much better, is realizing that I cannot create a better life for another. No matter how much I may see that the LOA will help my husband, children, co-workers, etc., it must be something they choose for themselves. All I have to do is love them ~ which is very easy. But you know what? The more I love them, the better our relationships keep getting!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Rhonda, and may God bless you.
