I came across The Secret about a year and a half ago, during one of the lowest points in my life. I decided to use it to become a more positive and happy person. It has taken time to rid myself of the negativity I was feeling, but now I rarely feel low, and when I do feel slightly ‘off my high’ I know it will pass in an hour or two, and I will be back to feeling great again! And I no longer get those bad days… ever! I feel so happy on a daily basis. Some days I feel so happy I feel I could burst! If this was the only thing thing The Secret achieved, it is so worth the effort.
The last three or four months I have been playing a game where I ask for something small, like a rainbow, a shooting star, a balloon, etc. These are just small things, but the game is to ask then wait to see it. I nearly always see what I have asked for within a few hours. I find it fun going through my day keeping an eye out for these things. Sometimes I see a picture, sometimes I see what I have asked for on t.v., other times I see the word, but always it comes.
Today I decided I wanted to change the game a little. I didn’t just want to see the thing I asked for, I wanted an actual thing to hold. I asked for a little silver heart that I could hang from my bracelet. I imagined a small puffy silver heart for a few moments. I then went about my day, as usual. About four hours later I was in my back garden. I looked down and there on the path was a small muddy silver heart. I have spent hours in my garden in the last few days, and hadn’t spotted it. Either that or it just wasn’t there before. I picked up the heart and found it was a small silver locket with beautiful engravings on one side. I was so happy. It is even lovelier than the heart I had imagined! It is now clean and hanging from my bracelet!
I think the trick of The Secret is to be truly happy and joyful, and to know that it is all about having fun. When I play these games, it is just that… a game. It’s fun, and I do it for fun. I am not attached to the outcome, I don’t try hard, I just enjoy the process.
For me this is the true gift of The Secret. Just to have fun, be happy, and enjoy life!
