First, I would like to apologise for my bad English, hopefully I’ll be able to express myself correctly.
Like many others, I feel extremely inspired after reading the many amazing stories shared in here, so I was looking forward to having a story of my own. Now I finally have. It’s not really an amazing story, but it was like an awakening call to the power I now know I have within me. So here it goes…
I’ve read The Secret book, and watched the movie several times, and though I understood it and it made sense to me, I didn’t actually believe in it. I just couldn’t make it work. I was stuck, so I started to be grateful. I would think about my dogs, my friends, my boyfriend, my wonderful family, and I just couldn’t help but smile. I never thought how lucky I was. I felt great knowing I had so much. I didn’t even ask for anything from the universe. I was just happy, and grateful to be me, to be alive.
A couple of days after I started to do this, I was invited to a lunch and a movie with several of my closest friends who I hadn’t seen in almost a year.
I woke up feeling great, the sun was out, everything looked happy and in harmony, so I got ready and went out to meet my friends. On my way over I couldn’t help but smile. I visualized every single one of them and the good times we had had together, how much I loved them, and how amazing that lunch was going to be. I was so happy inside and I just felt thankful for everything, and it was so effortless.
So when I got there, and while waiting for everybody, I went to a book store. I went to the area related to my area of study, and found a book one of my teachers recommended months ago. I didn’t even remember, but as soon I looked at it, I recognized it and felt a strange urge to buy it. I hesitated. The book cost 20 which was exactly the amount I had. I knew I could buy it cheaper in another store, and as I don’t work, I have to really pay attention to what I buy, but I felt something “telling” me to buy it, so I did. I couldnt stop thinking and visualizing 20, so I decided then and there to apply The Secret.
Since I was feeling the most happy and grateful I’ve ever felt, I decided to really enjoy that afternoon and my friends, and whenever I started to visualize the money I had spent, I changed all my thoughts and emotions, and started to say, Thank you that I attract money, and feel love and joy. The rest of the day went amazing I just felt I had spent the most awesome day of my life – I had the most amazing friends, and I was laughing inside and on the outside. I totally forgot about that 20 bill.
Later that day, I got home and greeted my parents and my dogs. I was a bit tired but feeling the happiest I’d ever been, so I went to my room and started to do the things I usually do. To my surprise, when I went to turn on my computer, I looked to my desk and there it was – a brand new 20 bill. I fell down on my chair laughing out loud as I couldn’t believe what had just happened.
Since that, never have I doubted The Power I have within me to create my own life. Thank you Rhonda, and thanks to all of you who inspire me daily with your amazing stories.
