I promised myself that one day I would give you my story. It’s long, so if you are going to read it I suggest you get comfy, maybe even get a cuppa 🙂
My first realisation of the power of The Secret happened when I was in my teens and unfortunately it was not a good thing that I attracted into my life. I had a boyfriend who was 9 years older than me. My family didn’t know. I was so scared of them finding out as I knew no good would come from it. I used to think of ways they could find out about this relationship and I used to fixate on the worst scenario I could think of, that we would be involved in a car accident. More specifically that my boyfriend would be driving, myself in the passenger seat and we would run someone over.
It happened. It was horrific. My boyfriend didn’t see the man until it was too late. He hit me as he came through the windscreen. Luckily the man escaped with a broken leg and nothing worse, but at 16 I knew that I was somehow responsible for this. As, how could something I clearly envisioned manifest coincidentally?
I knew that there was a power in me that was responsible for my experiences… but at 16 this knowledge was like having an instrument I didn’t know how to play. It was useless to me and I didn’t understand it.
I remember the day The Secret book came into my life. One of my teachers at the time made reference to it (slating it, if truth be told). Ignoring his review, I read it. I loved it and I watched the film and I loved that too. But like so many of us I was not yet ready to apply it in my life.
My life has been a wonderful one and I am truly blessed. But there are times when I want more and I want it now!! A few years ago I felt stagnant and I knew it was I that stopping the flow of all I wanted in my life. So I reached for The Secret.
I created my vision board, I wrote down my hopes and dreams. New cars and pay rises came quickly and I was grateful…but then the flow stopped.
I gave all the things I had manifested rational reasons for coming into my life. I was due a pay rise – of course I would get one. That was not a manifestation. I needed a car so I bought one. How could that have been the Universe?? I mean, it didn’t arrive with a bow on it and no explanation of how it got there.
The dark clouds began to roll over and my thinking became clouded too. So I reached again. I need a sign. I decided that I needed something that when it happened I would know, really know this is real. I decided I wanted the book “The Power”. But I wanted a FREE copy and a free copy was going to come into my life.
I made the most lethal mistake in The Secret formula…I began to think about the “how”. I would ask people I knew if they had a copy (thinking that maybe that would be how I would get my free copy). I put it out there and after two weeks of trying and thinking about my free copy, I got frustrated.
I knew I wanted to read the next book so I jumped on line and bought a copy. Grrrrr…this was not my free book, but nevertheless I wanted to read it.
Four/five weeks later and still no book!! Highly frustrated now I contacted the online book store and asked them kindly to refund my money as I had no book and if it arrived I would return it. I resigned myself to the fact that The Secret was mumbo jumbo, as my teacher said.
A few days later I got a lovely email saying that they were more than happy to put the money back into my account and if the book did arrive I could keep it. The money was put back into my account the same day “The Power” arrived at my door, and my sign from the universe came along with it!
My Vision Board, and my Hopes & Dreams book:
I am madly in love with my partner. He is my world. We have been together 4 1/2 years. I put pictures of us on the vision board next to rings and wedding dresses. We have tried on engagement rings and there are two I love, but there is one that I fell in love with and it is this particular ring I have envisioned on my finger since we started looking.
I have wanted to be 58kg for as long as I can remember and so that went on my vision board. Along with pictures of people I think have the figure I dream to have.
I am an actor and my dream is to be working on films- so that went on vision board. Pictures of films, scripts, directors I one day hope to be working with, actors, sets, all these images went on my vision board..
In my dream book I wrote all the things I would like. To work on a television show that is aired in the UK, to work on one of the television shows here in Australia, to be in a movie by the time I am 27, to be 58kg, for my brother to have a baby girl (I have two nephews and I was told that that is enough- under no circumstances will they be having another baby, in fact my brother will be getting the snip). This was a shame as they are great parents but I wrote it down nevertheless. I wrote down how I want my life to be and I felt the feelings that I believe I would feel once I had them.
In December I worked on the television show that I have wanted to work on and my family in the UK kept seeing me behind the scenes- it was one of the best experiences I ever had.
In June I stood on the scales to find 57Kg on the digital screen.
In July my love proposed in the most magical and unique way I have ever heard of, presenting the ring I have envisioned on my hand for months (even though this was not the ring I told him I wanted) .
This month I got to work on the Australian television show.
This weekend my niece was born, happy and healthy (a very lovely but unplanned surprise) and I am days away from wrapping in my very first ever movie… (I am 27 next month)
The hardest part for me during my “Secret journey” has been the acceptance that it IS real and you really can have everything you desire. But my god, it’s overwhelming. Knowing that it’s me and me alone that can make my dreams come true, knowing that I have the power over all my experiences is so overwhelming. It’s a wonderful yet vulnerable feeling. And it is a scary realisation, but a magnificent one too.
Manifest your dreams daily and have faith in your ability to achieve your dreams 🙂
