It started working instantly!
In hindsight there have been several times that the book The Secret has tried to come into my life, but I never jumped at the opportunity. However, I wasn’t meant to read it before because it came to me at such a low point in my life that reading it then had the most impact.
I was having problems with my family and felt so trapped in my situation that I started becoming depressed. I’m in post-secondary now, in dental hygiene, which has been my life-long dream and I was letting all my negative thoughts ruin this dream I’d had for eight years.
Last week was almost the complete breaking point for me, and I was talking to a classmate about my situation and she told me about this book that changed her life, The Secret. A light bulb went off in my mind because I had heard about it so many times. She let me borrow her copy of it, and I believed that it would work because nothing else so far had. As I was reading the book I realized that there were some things it said to do that I already did because I knew that they worked. I was already starting to apply it in certain ways!
I made a mantra for myself after reading The Secret that, “I am the captain of my own ship! This is my life!” I repeated that to myself over and over one night. The next day, I woke up and it was raining and I thought, “It would be really nice to walk to the bus to get to school in the sunshine,” and it was sunny when I left the house. I thought about the mantra I made for myself all the way to the bus stop and started listening to positive music that made me feel good. There was one song in particular called, “Fireflies”. As I stood on the bus, I imagined myself as a powerful transmission tower of positive thought. I then looked out the window of the bus and there in the clouds was a distinct shape of a ship! Exactly what my mantra was all about!
The next couple of days went by and I had bumped into people or talked to people I hadn’t seen in years. I noticed people smiling at me more on the bus or in passing, I noticed people being extra nice to me in stores. I went to Indigo to buy my own copy of The Secret because the one I was reading was borrowed, and when the clerk showed me to the section she said, “Oh look! The very last copy,” as she handed it to me.
The next day I went to go out to buy the DVD of The Secret, and my cousin and I went to a few places but couldn’t find it anywhere, in one store she saw an iPad and started playing around with it. She hit this one app and the song, “Fireflies” started playing, which was exactly the song I was listening to when I saw the boat shape in the clouds a couple days before! I went home and looked online for the DVD again, and it turned out that the first place we went to actually had it, so I called them and had them put a copy on hold. When I left the house I bumped into a friend I hadn’t talked to in a long time!
There are so many other little things like this that have happened this week, and as little as they are, I can feel the law of attraction working and those positive feelings being perpetuated within me and my thoughts.
Thank you, I am so grateful and happy that I understand The Secret. It has completely changed my life in only five days and I feel like a whole person again!
