I have read the The Secret, The Power, The Magic and I am currently re-reading Hero. I have also watched The Secret Film.
In December of 2012 my boyfriend and I were talking about getting engaged. One evening I came across a contest sponsored by our favorite local radio station called “Perfect Proposal.” In a certain amount of words, contestants needed to describe how they would propose to their partner. The winner would receive a $5,000 credit for an engagement ring, a dozen roses, and also a dinner and overnight stay to one of the best restaurants in our area. I showed my boyfriend it and he said he was going to submit an entry. After re-reading the rules I realized that the contest was not for males only, females could submit an entry as well.
That night I submitted my entry and was texting my boyfriend telling him that I won, I know that I won. I began using the principles from The Secret and the other books. I could literally smell the dozen roses and taste the amazing food and wine that we would indulge in at the restaurant. I could also see a beautiful diamond ring on my finger. Gratitude became a daily practice for me in the weeks that followed, I was thanking the universe for winning. I acted and felt as if I had already won. My journal became a spot for me to write down my thoughts and feelings. I thanked the universe in threes. I knew that I was going to win.
A few weeks later I received a voicemail from one of the radio personalities from that radio station, and I won!! I was so extremely happy!! My boyfriend, family and friends were shocked, but I was not because I knew that I was going to win. We found out that there were thousands of entries. I still thank the universe 4 years later.
Last year my father passed at a very young age and unexpectedly. I was completely devastated and still am today. Before he passed I was using the principles of The Secret in my daily life, but after such a tragedy I became very angry and frustrated. How could the universe do this to me?
I am happy to say that yesterday I began re-reading Hero. It is time to dive back in to the principles of the The Secret. I am very excited to get back into the practice. I can not wait to write another story once I manifest what I am currently working on now. The Secret works, if you don’t believe it, I have a beautiful diamond ring on my finger to prove it!
Thank you to Rhonda and The Secret team for sharing your knowledge with the world.
