My gratitude rock.
I watched the movie not but two months ago. It has given me great inspiration. Before I had watched the Secret I was having a tough time with work. I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted to do. I just turned 23 last month and I am engaged to the love of my life. I kept thinking, well soon I don’t know if I can do the job I’m doing. I work between 60-70 hours a week and wouldn’t want it to effect our relationship. It was suppose to be the happiest time in my life and I was becoming depressed.
I was given the dvd by a friend who said to watch it and tell her what I think. I said well I don’t think I need to see it, I’m strong in my religion. She said you don’t have to watch it now, but just keep it and watch it when you need some inspiration. I had the dvd for over a month. My fiance and I were going to hangout and watch a movie. She asked me if I had heard of the Secret. I said yeah I think I have it in my bag. She said her roomate had rented it but she didn’t know where it was. I said yeah let’s watch it tonight. On my way to her place my brother had called me. We were talking then out of no where he said, “Have you heard of the Secret?” I said yes Sandra and I were about to watch it. He said, “Great call me tomorrow and let me know what you think.”
I get to her place and we sit down and watch the movie. I felt something lifted, something not totally taken away but I realized I was having a bad attitude about things and I need to be more positive. It really touched me… Instantly I tried extra hard at work and tried to stay more positive in general. After a few weeks it all sort of faded. I mean I always kept a good attitude and tried to stay positive but I was still focusing on some bad things coming into my life. Whether it was having a heavy work load or even having enough money. I was still confused, I wanted to believe but I wasn’t sure I could.
Then one month ago my brother had sent me the Secret book for my birthday. I thought it was a great gift. I knew I wanted to really give my whole heart into the secret, but I was in the middle of another book. Day after day I’d get home see the book and grab the one still unfinished. Then about two weeks ago, I picked up the Secret. I was glued to the pages, from the man with the feather to the million dollar check. I thought to myself I am going to visualize something. Something no one else could have. I decided on my gratitude rock, the one I pictured in my head that I knew I’d find. So knowing I would find this rock I kept a positive attitude, whether it was work or whether it was money. I decided no one gets to write my story, no one decides how I have to work. I know that this is what I want to do. I will give all I can and truly love what I do. Just yesterday my brother called me, the same one who called me before watching the secret and the same one who bought me the book. I ended up talking to him for a bit. I was walking around the studio. Then I saw it. It was the rock I pictured. I said oh my gosh. I picked up the rock. It was the exact one, I pictured it a little more black, and this one was slightly faded. It had and exact dent in the exact place I thought it would. It was flat on the bottom exactly how I knew it’d be. I realized I had focused on it being this shape and size the last thing was the color. I barely thought of the color, just black and smooth, this was black and as smooth as I imagined.
I feel so great. Thank you for helping me realize I get to create all these things in my life. Without a doubt I feel like a whole new man. I talked to Sandra and told her I found it. She was so excited and started listing things she’d find. I hope that all people try to imagine everything they focus on. And just like me they’d realize we have been receiving everything we imagine. I am a filmmaker. I have my own studio and I have the best relationship one could ever imagine. I am the creator of my universe. I know it. I love the phrase ‘heaven on earth’, because I am really living it.
