On October 7th 2007.
On October 7th 2007 I was driving on 75 South from Tampa going to my job in Sarasota. Only I never made it. From what I was told, I was in a major accident. I was hit at the drivers side door so hard that they needed the’ jaws of life’ to get me out from my car. They put me in a helicopter straight over to Bayfront, the closest trauma center. I was put under constant critical care and in coma for 6 weeks. I suffered many injuries but the most severe was my brain. I now have brain damage. When I finally woke up and was told what happened, I couldn’t walk or use the left side of my body. On that day that I woke up, my new life started.
Here is where “The Secret” and my faith is what I worked with to be able to be here on my couch with my dogs, writing to you
When I woke up I couldn’t walk or talk or move my left side or see out of my left eye. I was told by all of my doctors that I was lucky to be alive but I was going to live in a nursing home and I would never get my guardianship back. I would never be able to live on my own. I had a slim to no chance of ever walking. All negative things. But I am a firm believer in The Secret and I knew that I must center my thoughts and my feelings to what I wanted. And at that moment I lived in a fantasy world.
I saw myself back at home with my kids. I would be walking and seeing out of my left eye and holding conversations with people. When the doctors, the nurses and therapists would give me negative news I would just politely smile because I knew better. My mom remembers that every day she would talk to me and see how I was doing and if I was in any pain. My answers were always the same. That I was having an awesome day and no pain! At night in my hospital bed while others slept I would do my PT exercises. I remember when my toe actually moved for the very first time! It was 11:30 at night and I called my mom. I didn’t care how late it was, I knew that I would walk again and here I was finally moving my toe!!! So her and I celebrated my walking!
After three and a half years in therapy I went to court and the judge granted me my guardianship back and that was when I was released from rehab!! All I wanted while I was in there was my bible and my book, The Secret. I know that it was because of my visualizations and my feeling and believing that I sit here now on my own, in my own home.
I have an attitude of gratitude every single day. I know I am able to create my life by following The Secret and the law of attraction. I knew in my heart and in my mind that the doctors were wrong. Even when I was sitting in the wheelchair or my assistant was giving me my shower or wiping my butt, that those circumstances were just temporary. I knew, like I knew, like I knew. Just like in your movie!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
