My First Kiss. Finally.
To have my first kiss isn’t on my Most Ambitious Dreams list but I have wanted to kiss a man for, let’s just say, a while now.
But before I tell you how I got to the kiss bit I have to tell you my experience with The Secret. I got to know of The Secret five years ago when I was browsing through a second-hand bookstore. Read the book, saw the movie and the only good it did to me was being able to catch a Rickshaw under any circumstances. I had my list of wants ready, I would go back and see what I was doing wrong but couldn’t figure it out…until three months ago, I think.
After getting tired with almost no results with The Secret I picked up The Magic. I did the whole 28 days bit and the results were astounding to say the least. Nothing great happened materialistically but I started feeling significantly better. My days were more busy, I started having more experiences, I met a few new people. I started being positive about everything and I finally realized what I was doing wrong all along.
In my process of wanting things, I had forgotten to see how much I already had. I would get obsessed about not having my first kiss, in this case even though most of my friends had already experienced it and feel so bad about it.
But when I started shifting my energy and started noticing what I already had, the things that I didn’t have, or rather in the process of manifesting, seemed insignificant and easy to manifest.
I made a book where I still write ten things I am thankful about everyday-whether it is a movie I saw with friends, or a dinner I had with my family, the company of my mother, whatever. I wrote it down.
Now, coming to my First Kiss story. My best friend came down from the U. S. A. Now she is one person I have to thank for making me stick to The Secret for so long. I am dead sure I would have given up on it if it hadn’t been for her continuous nagging. Anyway, she told me about this Buddhist chant-Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. You chant it whenever you have free time and think about what you really want. I immediately took to it and I would think about my first kiss as if it is happening to me then and there-the feel of his lips, blah, blah.
The same friend decided to throw a New Year’s party and I decided that this would be a good chance for me.
But in all this, I broke an important rule of The Secret-I didn’t truly believe I’d have it. But I would reassure myself that even if it didn’t happen, I wouldn’t feel disheartened because I already had so much to feel thankful for.
Long story short, that night till the end of the party I hadn’t had my first kiss but I still enjoyed each and every moment of it and I was grateful for each moment of it. As the party ended and the guests started dwindling I got chatting with a very cute man, one I hadn’t noticed in the beginning and one thing led to another and I ended up kissing him
So for me, gratitude and making sure that I was happy worked and I hope it does for you too.
