I first read The Secret when it was published in 2006. From the moment I unlocked my thinking and understanding of it, my life changed forever and that of my loved ones too.
I had approached life with an extremely positive attitude so I felt happy and content but there was always a yearning to achieve the next level in everything. In love, happiness, wealth, health, and most importantly, gratitude.
I was already living in a beautiful home but I knew I needed to find our forever home. So the moment I read The Secret I started to practice daily affirmations, felt gratitude, and created a vision board of all of the things I wanted to achieve and aspired to.
It was so amazing seeing and experiencing the changes happening. There were small things like traffic lights always being green, my journeys everywhere being easy and stress-free, reaching destinations in expected times, not queuing in stores when paying for groceries, being offered complimentary upgrades in hotels, or getting seated at “the best” tables in restaurants. But it was the changes in the bigger things that were the most rewarding and noticeable. Within one year of practicing and being attuned to the Universe when I just “asked and believed”, I and my family experienced receiving on another level. In fact, one of my close family members won a share of a big lottery win with his work colleagues.
My husband and I found a deeper level of love that we hadn’t experienced before and our children were thriving and doing well in their own little lives. We found our perfect family home next to the sea which was a push financially at the time. But we knew we would increase our wealth due to our commitment to The Secret!
That is exactly what happened. I found another career route that unlocked 5 times more income than I’d previously experienced and through our daily affirmations, practicing constant gratitude, and our vision board, we have achieved everything on it, including our dream car.
We continue to feel blessed every day and never take a single moment or teaching for granted. Even when faced with tougher times in our lives, of which there have been a few, we always maintained faith that things would get better and brighter days would outshine any darker moments. And they truly have.
People who know us think we are “jammy” or “always lucky”. I remember my young daughter once saying to me, “Mum, everything always goes our way doesn’t it. We always seem to land on our feet.” This is so true and I believe this is all down to discovering The Secret and following the principles of it.
Interestingly, over the years we have met various people in our lives that have asked us what our ‘secret’ to life success was. When we mention The Secret, at times we’ve been met with a negative response and some people have been skeptical, likening it to a cult. Needless to say, these have not been the most successful or grateful people we have met in our lives and we didn’t take those relationships forward as they were not aligned with our thinking.
It is important to share the love about The Secret in a positive way that avoids coming across as smug, arrogant, or as if you’re bragging, as this is not a good look. So we always strive to remain understated and humble as this way we remain true to the teachings within The Secret.
To this day I write daily affirmations and every morning when I wake up, I say to myself “I am so grateful for being here, for the love that surrounds me, my beautiful home, and for being healthy.” Then I place my feet on the floor and start my day!
