Manifesting My Soulmate.
I learned about The Secret when I started working at a counseling program in 2011. We showed the movie to our clients to help them learn about how impactful their thoughts are to their lives.
The majority of the work I did was with men who were arrested for hurting a loved one. After years and years of working with these men, I started to lose my faith in men. Being single for almost a decade, I dated casually but never met someone who really made me feel the way I thought being in love should feel. Dating seemed to be disappointment after disappointment and I never felt like I met someone on my level. One day I decided to make a vision board, this board was full of pictures of couples being romantic, in love, dancing, kissing, embracing and going on adventures. It had pictures of men that looked gentle, caring and attractive. It had words like future husband, love of my life, romance and love inspired by you!
I started changing my own inner dialogue with myself about men. Instead of messages like, “men are jerks” or “men are all so clueless” I started changing my thoughts to “honest, loyal men still exist”. When I would go on a date or have a bad experience, I would look at my vision board and find comfort in the fact that my perfect partner was out there and every disappointment was bringing me closer to that moment when we would meet. I would pray and ask God to please bless my future husband with abundant blessing and to build him up into the man I need him to be. I just knew that it was going to be easy and effortless and that when we met we would know.
Nine months later I met this man on a dating site, and we talked on the phone for about a month before we finally met in person. We finally met and I was interested and so was he. Now it was just about making the time to get to know each other better. I usually only had one date and never got asked on second dates, but after our third date which consisted of dinner and dancing, I knew that I was attracted to him and wanted to get to know him better. After a few months of getting to know each other he told me that he was in shock and he didn’t understand how someone could meet me and not want to spend the rest of their lives with me.
Fast forward and we are making plans about how we want our lives to mesh together. We are both single parents and shared how we really want to establish a feeling of family for ourselves and our children. I am still in awe of how easy it has been for us to fall in love. There is no guessing, we communicate so well and constantly express our gratitude to each other. We have both openly discussed how this relationship has been so different, so special and how we have experienced feelings that we have never felt before. The way we feel about each other is amazing and the way we communicate so openly is very beautiful. We are grateful that we have found each other. The Secret has helped me to change my life and manifest the life I want to live.
