Magic is just as real as your imagination!
I learned The Secret when I was just a 14 year old.
When I first learned The Secret, one thing in the book that really stood out to me was when the book referred to The Secret as a Guardian Angel. For some reason it resonated with me, and my first wish was to meet my guardian angel, so she or he could grant all of my wishes for me quicker than The Secret could. I know, at first you’re thinking “That doesn’t make sense, this person is crazy” but in my childish mind it made sense and I was determined to make it come true. I re-read the book over and over, and kept visualizing two very specific ways I wanted to meet my guardian angel.
The first way would be at night, I would be sitting by my bedroom door, and hear three knocks on the door, and I would open the door, and they would be standing there.
The second way would be while I was at school, I would be sitting in my 2nd period class, and the door would be closed, and the class would be completely quiet, when suddenly I would hear 3 knocks on the door, and the teacher would open it. A random person would come in with a note with my name on it and say “Can you send (My first and last name) to the counselor’s office?” I would then walk out of class and there my guardian angel would be standing outside in the hall waiting for me. I never told ANYONE about this. I never wrote it down anywhere, never hinted at it, and never said it out loud in any way. Only I knew about my wish.
For an entire month this was all I thought about. I put full faith into this happening. Weeks went by and it didn’t happen, but I wouldn’t give up. One morning after waking up my sister told me “I was scared last night. I heard someone knocking 3 times on your bedroom door and the dog barked like someone was there but there was no one there.” So then I thought “Well, that’s really weird, but I didn’t actually get to see my guardian angel so my wish hasn’t come true yet.”
A couple days after this, a miracle happened. It was 5 years ago, but I remember it like yesterday. I can even tell you what I was wearing that day. Remember how I said I wanted this to happen in my 2nd period class? First, The door would be closed and the class would be silent, and then there would be 3 knocks. Well, the teacher always keeps her door open, and the class is usually very loud, but this day we had a sub who closed the door in order for us to focus and be quiet because we were taking a test.
And I had this overwhelming feeling and thought in my head that today was the day. I kept repeating it in my head. The class was quiet as could be, and suddenly I heard 3 knocks on the door. I looked up curiously, as the sub walked to the door and opened it and in walked a boy who looked a year or two older than me. In his hands was just a torn off piece of notebook paper. I had never seen this boy in my life. There was nothing unique or special about him. He just looked like an average high school boy.
I just watched him with curiously, and he looked at the torn piece of paper and said “Can you send (My first and last name) to the counselor’s office?” and handed the teacher the paper, and left the room without looking at anyone but the sub. I could not believe it. Not only did my vision come true but it happened EXACTLY how I wanted it. I started shaking I was so excited and in so much disbelief. I walked to the teacher’s desk and I glanced over at the piece of paper the boy gave her and all that was on there was my first and last name. That’s it. There was no note or anything. Just my name. So I then walked out the door.
It was the biggest adrenaline rush for me. The moment of truth: Would there be someone there standing in the hall waiting for me? I stepped outside and looked around and was immediately confused when I didn’t see any angels standing there waiting for me. It was just an empty hallway. I thought “Maybe this is just a strange coincidence The Secret didn’t work, and I was actually needed in the office.”
I then walked to the counselor’s office to find out. As soon as I walked in, the lady at the front desk had a confused look. She smiled and said “Can I help you?” And I said “Yeah, somebody called me down here. I’m not sure what for.” Again the lady looked confused and said “What is your name?” I told her my name and she again gave a confused look. She said “I don’t remember calling you down here. I wonder if someone else called you. And then she asked everyone there in that office. Not a single person called me there, sent someone to get me, or needed me for anything. Then the lady suggested “Maybe the other office needed you for something.” So she called the other office, and was completely puzzled when they too said no one called me down, or needed me.
She looked at me and said “Well, we didn’t need you here for anything so I guess you can just head back to class. That’s weird though.” And I just smiled and said “Yes, it is weird.” I then headed back to class just waiting for an angel to pop out somewhere and say “surprise!” but none did. I went back to class and couldn’t comprehend why everything happened exactly how I wanted except the biggest part of the story- meeting my guardian angel. I mean, I told no one about this wish so it is still crazy that it happened the exact way I wanted, so I knew The Secret made my wish come true with the getting sent out of class thing, but why didn’t I get to see this angel?
After that, I finished my four years of high school at the same school, and to this day I’ve still never seen that boy that sent me out of class ever again, and I have never seen the sub again either. Shorty after I kept trying again to see this angel strange things happened, like I heard of stories about guardian angels on the news, and family members happened to send me cards about guardian angels, and even angel pictures and figures. But after a long time of not physically seeing this angel, I gave up and decided to move on to using The Secret for other things, and then quickly started getting many things I wanted.
Now as I’m older I realized that I did get my wish without even knowing it. My guardian angel is not a physical being I can touch, my guardian angel IS The Secret. It is the people I’m close to, the things I accomplish, my happiness, and the
circumstances in my life. The Secret did let me meet my guardian angel by showing it to me through my wishes and all the dreams coming true around me. And by showing me this magic that happened with my getting out of class, I was able to put undeniable faith into The Secret to make my wishes come true faster. My wish did come true after all, and now I have this amazing story. Any time I want to give up on The Secret, or I think it isn’t real, I think back to this story and try to explain how this event happened so perfectly and how there really is no other explanation than The Secret.
