I have only just begun to read and understand the power of the Secret. After reading about 2 chapters of The Secret last night, I got in the shower. I let my mind begin to think of happy thoughts about my life, my circumstance, and my marriage. For years I had been feeling lonely, forgotten, and unloved. Worse, I felt unlovable. I was not only hoping and praying for a change in our relationship, I was now imagining it.
It was amazing. It happened! As if God, the creator of the universe and universe itself, had just opened up my dreams and handed them to me. For sometime now my husband and I have been distant, but last night he came to me and was sweet and caring. I am still amazed and in awe of what I have just witnessed.
A long time ago I did art work for a woman who knew the Secret – she taught it as a “Mindful Path”. I did not understand it then, but I do now.
Allow me to reflect back on my life… About 6 years ago. I was in a new church with people I did not know and my 2 children. I prayed unceasingly for a friend there. One that would help me to feel comfortable there. And would be a real & true friend. Two weeks of believing and knowing that that friend would come. I realize now it was not just the hoping and praying, it was the believing and knowing in my heart that my need would be provided. Then it happened and in a mighty way. Not only did I get an awesome friend, my children did too. We met at a ladies brunch. We were both setting the tables. She was new there as well. We began to talk. She was an ex-cop, an MP to be more exact. I was also an ex-law enforcement officer. We had both worked at a local school for troubled children, but at different times. She has become one of my dearest friends and so have our children. We have remained close even after moving about an hour away from each other.
I did not know it then, but I realize now it is not just the wanting and the praying. It is also the believing and the knowing that brings these good things about in our lives. It is the gratefulness for what is about us. This is not only in your book but also found in scripture as well. As I read The Secret I realized this.
I know I will write with more good news again soon. Thank you for this book and The Secret.
