It works…it really does!
My very good friend Eva introduced me to The Secret a couple of months ago. I listened to her talk about it a few times & then decided to give it a try. I purchased the CDs & began listening to them immediately. I must admit I was a skeptic at first. But something inside of me kept telling myself to just give it a try.
I was only about half way through The Secret when I had experienced the first “miracle”, which began to chip away my doubt. I went to the drugstore to pick up a couple of prescriptions. One of the prescriptions was new, & I had no idea how much it would cost. My medication usually costs about $60/month. When I pulled up to the window & gave the cashier my name, I looked in my wallet & pulled out 2 $20 bills. I instantly knew that the total would be less than $40. I JUST KNEW IT! Sure enough, the cashier said, “That will be $35.69.” I smiled & thought, “This is cool.”
Later that evening, after listening to the part that talked about envisioning what you want, I began to tell myself that I would get some money unexpectedly. I didn’t question how, but I just told myself that some money was coming my way. I began saying this in my mind over & over. A while later, I had the feeling that my mom was going to send me a check. It was a strong feeling, which really surprised me because my mom doesn’t just send me money for no apparent reason. (She has helped me out a couple of times in the past, but I have had to ask for the money. And I have always paid her back.) The amount of $475 came into my mind. I went with it. I did not question or argue. I really began to focus on the check. I envisioned my mother’s check with her handwriting on it. I saw my name written on the check. I saw “Four hundred seventy-five” written. I saw my mother’s signature on the bottom of the check. I started believing that the check from my mother WAS coming very soon. I repeated to myself several times that night, “It will happen. I will receive a check from my mother.” I really believed it! I continued the rest of the evening believing & repeating those thoughts. I began thinking thoughts of abundance & financial freedom.
The very next morning, I woke up around 8:30 am, which is unusual for me because I usually sleep until about 10 on Saturdays. I stayed in bed, just thinking & pondering. I felt so good…I knew that good things were coming my way. About 30 minutes later, my phone rang. It was my mom. She RARELY calls me on my cell phone; she usually calls me at work. I answered. She asked what I was doing, & I told her that I had just woken up. My mom asked me if she should call me back later. I said, “No, that’s ok. I was getting up.” My mom then said, “I’ve got some good news.” I asked, “What is it?” She answered, “I am sending you a check for $500.” I immediately sat up in my bed, & ecstatically asked, “What?!” She repeated herself. “I’m sending you a check for $500.” My mom proceeded to tell me that she felt bad that I didn’t receive anything after my dad passed away last year. (My parents are divorced.) All I could do was tell her how much I appreciated it, & how incredibly generous she was. I was boiling over with enthusiasm & excitement. We then somehow got on the subject of the small amount of debt that I had left. My mom then said, “I tell you what. I’m going to send you $1000.” I again asked, “What?!” I was overwhelmed! This was just too amazing! My mom then told me how proud she was of me & said that she didn’t want to see me struggle. I told my mom over & over how much I appreciated this & how very generous it was of her. I then asked her if she would be mailing the check to me that day. She laughed & then asked me, “You want me to go deposit it into your account, don’t you?” I didn’t want to be greedy, so I said, “No, Mom, that’s ok. It doesn’t matter to me.” My mom asked for my account # anyway. I told her again to not worry about depositing the money. She just said, “We’ll see.” I just couldn’t thank her enough for her generosity.
After I got off the phone with my mom, I got out of bed & just shook my arms & fists up in excitement. I was smiling so big & just kept saying, “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.” After I calmed down, I went about my day. I fixed my coffee & was washing a few dishes when the thought came to me, “Mom is going to deposit that money into my bank account today.” I immediately then told myself that I was being too greedy & not to expect that. My next thought was, “No, you’re not being greedy. The Secret teaches us to expect BIG things & believe that they will happen.” I was cleaning my bathroom about an hour & a half later when my phone rang. I knew instantly that it was my mom. I answered, & she said, “Check your bank account!” I was again elated & overwhelmed! I have no doubt that this was because of The Secret.
Other things have happened, but I felt compelled to share this experience because it has been the most profound thus far. I am a positive & outgoing person to begin with, but I have really changed my thinking since listening to The Secret. It is getting easier & easier to get rid of the negative thoughts & replace them with positive ones. I write & speak affirmations every day & all day. I KNOW that this is just the beginning of a wonderful life for myself. I wish EVERYONE could experience this! It is just too WONDERFUL to keep to myself!
