My 8 year old son using The Secret
I too would like to tell you my experience with my eight-year old son, Mehul, in far away India.
In India we have a ranking system in school. Mehul stood eighth rank in the first term exams. During that time I was reading The Secret and I trusted that this book will surely make him leap to the first rank. So from the very next day I asked him to meditate for only 10 minutes.
He was to visualize that the principal of the school called out his name for the first rank, and he was going ahead to pick the trophy. I asked him to visualize in vivid details everything – the smile on his friends face, the standing ovation he got, etc. He too believed in this idea, and never missed a single day of visualization.
You won’t believe it, the class teacher called and informed us just before the third term was to start that Mehul has stood first in his class.
I would like to add that he still continues his visualization without missing even a single day, and his performance in all the spheres has been top class. He was a timid introverted boy, and now people don’t believe whether he is the same guy.
He is developing into a talented dancer when before he was not able to stand in front of an audience.
I don’t understand when it is so easy to make an eight year old boy understand the power of visualization, that grown ups are so skeptical and doubtful when I suggest this technique. I feel they fear success more then anything else!
