Once I was a little crazy…
My story starts around 3-4 years ago or so when I first read The Secret. Having been a metaphysician for 20+ years, the concepts presented in the book were not new to me, but never had I run across them presented in such a clear and more importantly, easy to use way (thanks Rhonda and team). I immediately became an earnest student of the LOA. I knew that I had to stick with it to master the LOA or my life would continue to be “OK” at best – I wanted a fabulous life – the one I always dreamed of.
I asked my husband and son to watch The Secret DVD with me, but they refused. That didn’t stop me from continuing on. When I bought the CD’s, things really started to move because I would listen to them almost every day. I began to change the way I talked about things and I would often “correct” them for putting out a negative statement by saying “do you really want to experience that?”
After a while, my son and husband decided that they needed to do an intervention with me. They sat me down and told me that they thought I was a little crazy and unrealistic because you can’t wish a better life into existence. I tried to explain that this is not wishful thinking. I even brought in that what I am doing is backed up by quantum physics, but they could not hear me on this. I asked them again to watch the movie with me, but they didn’t. I told them that I would try not to bring them into it anymore, but I wasn’t going to stop.
I was hurt by this – my family thought I was a little crazy. I worried that I may “lose” my relationships with the two of them, but then recognized that they were in my life for a reason AND I was in theirs for a reason too! I found a place of peace about the situation and stopped trying to bring them along; this was my journey.
A few months later I started to notice that they would “correct” themselves when they would make negative statements and I think they delighted in catching me when I did so, which was just fine with me. I was letting that old way of thinking and speaking go. Then one day my husband asked to watch the movie with me. While we were watching my son came in and watched too. They still were a little skeptical, but at least they understood that I wasn’t talking about wishful thinking. Their minds and hearts began to open. Now my husband expects checks in the mail and the two of us practice together envisioning our life. We all have become optimists and my son especially notices the LOA in action all around us. And somehow I am no longer a little crazy….
