One Good Thing After Another
I first watched The Secret exactly one week and one day ago. I actually stumbled upon The Secret while up late flipping through Netflix on a Friday night. This is unusual for me since I normally don’t stay up late if everyone else is asleep. All I can say is that night, something higher than me was working. My 2 year old daughter went to bed without much fuss and my husband was really tired so he went to bed uncharacteristically early. Upon watching The Secret, I realized that the information wasn’t new to me. I actually had a few books that talk about the very same thing that the movie spoke on. I don’t know what it was about the Secret that got through to me but I was soon believing that I could have whatever I desired.
I was so empowered by what I had learned that I started to put the teachings to use right away, this is what has happened so far:
Friday night I said that I will go to bed and wake up rested and in a good mood. My 2 year old is an early riser so it is rare that we get to sleep in on Saturdays. I laid in the bed visualized how my morning would go. When morning came, everything went exactly as I had planned.
Sunday nights are normally hard for me because I have so much anxiety about starting another work week that I normally don’t fall asleep until 1 or 2 in the morning to only have to wake back up by 6:30. I used the same visualization techniques and spoke good things over my Monday. Needless to say, my day went great!
Wednesday: I will be going on business travel in a few weeks and didn’t really have enough money to spend while away. In addition to that I knew that money wold be tight back home with my husband and daughter. I decided to write down all of the money that I needed to cover bills and spending money for this trip. After figuring how much I needed, I went online and printed paper money. I printed and cut out the exact amount I needed down to the paper coins. I put it in my wallet and said that I will get this money and i allowed myself to believe that I already had it.
Thursday: The accounting department at my job sent out an email to all those who would be going to convention. They said that if we wanted to be reimbursed for the money we paid for airfare than we could submit the forms before we left for convention. This was a true blessing for me because I thought that I wouldn’t be reimbursed until after the convention. That was $400 plus coming my way. Having been so inspired by the movie, I decided to purchase the Secret book. Where I work there is a Borders down the street that is going out of business. I figured that I could probably get the book for an affordable price. I went to the bookstore’s website to see if the book was available. The closes store that had the book was in Virginia and the store that I wanted to go to was in DC. I decided to go to the store that wasn’t supposed to have it to look anyway. As I was walking to the section where the book should be, I happened to look down and on the table there was the Secret. I quickly picked it up and proceeded to the section where the book was supposed to be. After thoroughly looking I found no other copy of the Secret. As I was checking out, the cashier was stunned that there was still a copy of the book in the store.
With all of these great things happening to me, I decided to take it a step further. On Friday, I told myself that I would start receiving checks in the mail. Saturday evening I checked the mail box and received a $75 check. It was a refund from an emergency room co-pay I paid a year ago.
All I can say is that God is awesome and The Secret really works if you believe that good things are meant for you the universe will deliver.
I am grateful.
