One little conversation…
I am a grade nine Montessori student, and I love it because it is very social. Since my beginning grade eight, I have made quite a few friends. Unfortunately, I had a falling out with an old friend that year, when we realized that we were both very different and we had nothing in common and we fought a lot. Our friendship ended. And slowly, the rest of my friends were slipping away from me.
I was reading a wicca book of spells that gave me a recipe for a friendship spell. And since this was my first wicca spell, at first, I thought, “Okay, this will be real easy, I’ll get tons of friends in the next week.” But it wasn’t like that at all. The book told me to really look into my mind and visualize the type of friends I wanted, to really think positive thoughts while I was reciting the spell. I thought this was kind of weird. I performed the spell anyway, and hoped for the best.
Then, I got my own copy of The Secret, and then I truly understood what the book meant when it told me to visualize and think about my future friends. I waited, and thought, really visualized me and my future friend eating lunch together, walking to and from school together and inviting her to my birthday party. I drew pictures of us together, and tried to feel good and positive.
Grade nine began for me and it was amazing. One of my good friends applied and got into the same Montessori program. And I was very happy. But then she started to hang out with my ex-friend more, and so did another one of my good Montessori friends. I was a loner.
Then one day we were split up into groups to clean and weed the garden and grassy areas around the school. I was in a group of six and four of them were good friends. After we were finished, we didn’t have anything to do. So the two girls got together and talked, and so did the two boys. I sat off to the side by myself and kept thinking about meeting my friend. I then noticed a girl in my group who was, like me, sitting off to the side. I then saw an opportunity. I got up, walked over to her and sat down next to her. We both said, “Hey, hi, hello,” and for a while there was an awkward silence. Then we really began to talk, and what happened just blew me away. As we continued to talk, we had so much in common. We both loved performing, read all the time, loved cinnamon buns, and the list went on. The next day we had lunch together by the sky train tracks near our school, ate cinnamon buns and talked forever. I made her laugh, which made me feel really good. It was so incredible. And it got better. My old friend started having lunch with me again, he talked to me and gave me hugs and so did the other one. Even my ex-friend talked to me a bit.
The Secret really works and it helped my social life so much. I am so happy that I read the book. May the joy be with you.
