Manifestation and giving back
I am very new to The Secret, but already I have felt positive changes around me and I am so very thankful for that!
I first read The Secret a few weeks ago. I was on jury duty for three days so I had a lot of time to absorb and meditate on what The Secret offered – and it completely moved me. I realized how my negativity in the past did result in too many bad things happening to me. I had never been a very positive person, but so much of what The Secret said made sense to me. I have completely changed my outlook in the morning to be thankful for what I have, and I look forward to each day knowing that something great will occur during that time.
Eventually I decided to manifest something. It seemed so simple to do that I wasn’t sure I could do it, but I remained positive and decided to attract a shiny penny to me – but I’d know it was my penny because it would manifest to me somewhere where I’d never expect to see one.
For four days nothing happened, and I wasn’t sure whether my “asking” was heard. That is, until yesterday! I was coming off the escalator at my job at the end of my day, and at the bottom was a shiny penny, perched barely above step before it falls below the floor. I got off and looked at it and just started laughing! Other people coming down the elevator probably thought I was nuts seeing me laugh at a penny. They didn’t know how special that penny was!
Around the same time I asked for the penny, I also asked for $100, just to see if I could manifest something of a bit more substance. Again, for a few days, nothing. And I was beginning to wonder. One afternoon a day later my wife and I were doing our power walk around the neighborhood and we found a small bag on the sidewalk that appeared to have been dropped or misplaced by somebody. In the bag was a camera, a pair of prescription glasses and a couple of other personal belongings – and the name and phone number of the owner. We left a voice message with the owner.
The next day the owner came by to pick up the bag. I was away from the house but my wife met the owner outside and he handed over a wad of bills to my wife as a reward. She refused the money, but told me when I returned that it was at least a few $20 bills. WOW! I wasn’t upset at all – I’m glad we could help somebody out but the fact that it was there just blew me away.
I read these stories each day as inspiration. I have asked the Universe for something much bigger now for myself and my family. The Secret works!! Do not underestimate what you can do – everybody should have the opportunity to experience the sheer joy I had when I received what I wished for – it doesn’t matter how small you think it is.
Thanks to everyone who have contributed their stories about their successes with The Secret. They helped me see and believe, and I’m so grateful that I hope what I contributed will help somebody else see what they are capable of!!
