I discovered the Secret almost a year ago now, and immediately threw myself into creating anything and everything- well, trying too anyway. It just didn’t seem to work for me.
It wasn’t until I recently got back into it after reading an inspirational Secret Scroll, that something quite magical happened.
A few nights ago I was a little bored of studying for a test, and started thinking about what I should try to attract. And then it hit me; a new friend. I was really beyond hoping it would work and absentmindedly wrote ‘new friend’ in pink highlighter on my leg in fancy writing, more to put off study then anything else. I stared at it for a few seconds and smiled… a new friend really would be nice. And then thought, ‘Back to work! Now Natalie!’ and promptly forgot about it.
The next day in class (you guessed it), someone I hadn’t talked to before sat next to me. The teacher happened to be absent for a period and we got talking. As it turns out we have similar backgrounds, similar families and relatives, and we started laughing like old friends about their habits and traits and cultural things they do. We shared family scandals and secrets and were so surprised at how much we have in common that we didn’t notice before.
The moral of this story is, I guess, DON’T TRY SO HARD! Don’t ask the universe for something, TELL the universe what you are going to receive and then get on with life. Because the moment it forms in your mind it’s already guaranteed.
