First a quick intro about my journey with The Secret. I first discovered the law of attraction in 2010. That led me to The Secret book a few years later. I have since read all of the books in the series and watched The Secret film many times. I just watched the new movie, The Secret, Dare To Dream, and I loved it! I read The Power and my favorite book is The Magic. I’ve worked through it several times with great results.
Over the years I have harnessed the LOA many times with amazing results. I could’ve written many stories here but I never did until now. I don’t know why!! This experience I’m going to tell you about is one of the most profound for me.
The thing I knew I wanted and needed, was a deeper connection to God through meditation. This was so that I could receive God’s guidance and take inspired action.
I have meditated on and off for about 30 years and still feel like a complete beginner! Recently I went through some really difficult situations. I knew I needed to strengthen my connection to God to get through it and to see the bigger picture.
I don’t belong to any religion but I looked on the website of my local church to see if they were open. They were not, but there was an amazing image on their website. It said, ‘Prayer is talking to God, meditation is listening to God’. I felt like that was exactly the message I needed to hear! I was so happy that I had followed my urge to check the church’s website because I needed to see that. But then it all got more intense! God really wanted to get a message to me!
I am reading ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ by Elizabeth Gilbert. That same day, one of the pages I read had that exact same quote I’d just seen on the church website! I felt so happy and amazed that God was really communicating with me.
Then I read on and came across the part of the book that discusses mantras. So I started using the ones in the book immediately. Later that night, I was listening to a YouTube video of Rupert Sheldrake and he started talking about the use of mantras!
A few days later I still felt like I needed a bit more, so this time I felt the urge to go to Bhaktivedanta Manor. I’d wanted to go for years but never did. The morning I booked the tickets, I was looking on Google to read up about it. I then had to go out so I thought I’d look later. Whilst I was out shopping, I had this incredible urge to go into a specific charity shop. It was so strong that I knew that there had to be something in there for me.
Amongst all the books and lovely beads was the book, ‘Chant And Be Happy – The Power Of Mantra Meditation’. So not only is it about mantra meditation but it is also connected to Bhaktivedanta Manor! There’s even a picture of George Harrison on the cover and an interview with him inside. He actually bought the Manor and donated it to the Hare Krishna movement. It was so ‘random’ to find that book!
I am going to Bhaktivedanta Manor in a few hours. I am still having some ongoing difficult situations but the mediations, mantras, and chanting have changed everything for me. I now feel that I am fully connected with God. This is exactly what I had asked for and it was exactly what I was given! All I need to do is have faith and God will lead the way.
God, the Universe, Divine Intelligence, whatever you believe the force is, it is there to serve you. Every experience is causing you to ask for something better. You will receive what you want and need at the perfect time.
Thank you sincerely to all the story writers. They have really helped me over the years. Thank you in particular to Rhonda Byrne for manifesting The Secret and making the LOA accessible to many who may not have otherwise discovered it. Blessings to you all!
