Thank you Rhonda Byrne and The Secret Team for bringing this to the world. Thank you to everyone who shares their stories. I love reading them. I come to the website and read the stories when I feel I need a little inspiration and it works!
This is my first time sharing my story. I’ve thought about writing so many times but didn’t know where to start. I have so many stories about how The Secret worked for me. I guess I will start at the beginning.
When I first learned about The Secret my life was surrounded by all kinds of negativity. I was in a loveless relationship, my partner’s mother hated me, my youngest child’s father was abusive and constantly harassing me. I was on welfare, had no job, no money, and no home of my own. Everyday was such a painful routine, stuck in survival mode, struggling to get through the day, battling a severe case of depression. And all the while I kept thinking “I just want to be happy”. Because of the depression I was questioning if I deserved to be happy. I thought maybe it’s just not meant to be for me.
I now know I attracted these things by default. I am so grateful that I learned how to turn things around by using The Secret.
I was taking work-first classes, and one of the classes on the schedule was The Secret. I asked the teacher, “what is The Secret about”? She just smiled and said, “You have to come to class to find out.”
I was suddenly very excited about coming to class. I couldn’t wait for the day we get to learn about The Secret. The day finally came when we got to learn about The Secret. I watched the movie and it was so amazingly awesome! It brought tears to my eyes and I thought could this really be true?? Could things really be that simple?? For me it seemed too good to be true. I wanted sooo much to believe, but due to my old way of thinking it was hard for me to just jump right in. So, I was cautiously optimistic. I decided to test it with little things at first. Like a free pop, parking spaces, green lights, stuff like that. They all worked!
But this way of thinking was all new to me, so at first it was a bit difficult for me to keep at it. I was still constantly surrounded by negativity. So I had to totally immerse myself in The Secret just for the little things to work. I got everything I could get my hands on, the DVD, the book, the audio book, and the journals. I read, watched and listened every day as much as I could, taking it all in.
But it seemed like things in my life stayed the same, they weren’t getting any better yet. Things between me and my partner at the time just seemed to be getting worse. So, one day after a horrible argument I threw my hands up and said “Okay! I am ready to take the first step!”
It was like magic! Everything transformed after that day.
I found another place to stay, moved out of my ex’s, my baby’s father stopped calling me, and I started counseling for my depression. I felt like a great weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I was finally free! I was finally happy!
Since then I decided to always practice The Secret. I started by counting my blessings and being grateful for each and every one. Then I asked for what I wanted. Since I was content with myself, thanks to my counseling, I decided to give love another shot. I am a hopeless romantic! I asked for the perfect partner. Made a list of qualities in him that I was grateful for and waited for him to show up. I met him in a few weeks time. He was everything I asked for and more. Can you believe he moved to my town from across the country! Everything just fell into place. It is like a fairy tale. After one week we were in love and talking about marriage! We have been together for five years now and have been inseparable ever since. We have a blended family of five kids. He has two and I have three. And we are considering having more.
I have taught my children how to use The Secret. We always remember to be grateful for everything, big and small, every little thing. We made a game out of it. Each one of us takes a turn saying what we are grateful for. Whether it is something we already have or if it is something we want, we give thanks for it like we already have it. It is so much fun! Together we have attracted our own apartment, a house, and traveling. Our next destination is Disneyland! We are so excited!
I have also attracted a good paying job with nice coworkers and a nice boss earning exactly what I asked for! It is so amazing! I have my slip ups every now and then but I always remember to come back to The Secret.
I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
