I was always subconsciously aware of The Secret. As a child I was very lazy (still am), and absolutely hated the idea of home-work. I hardly ever did my homework on time! I used to positively dread the moment the teachers would ask for homework, and whenever such a situation would arise, I would concentrate all my energy into the date of submission getting postponed (somehow, somehow!!). And it did, always!
But then I grew up…
My power had been forgotten about. I did not believe I had control over events anymore. This was a pity because I was really going to need it.
My most beloved uncle was trapped in such a situation that none of us would ever be able to meet him again. The entire family was in a state of devastation. Every moment awake was spent feeling his absence. We sacrificed the things we liked most about life hoping to impress the Gods and get him back… I had given up non-vegetarian food (chicken burgers were very dear to me back then). Nothing changed, until Christmas!
I was always a big believer in Christmas, and asked Santa to give me my uncle this Christmas. That day my uncle came back. But just for 2 hours… he had to go back after that. My uncle is the most loved man in town and hordes of people had come down to meet him. One particular man in the crowd was bearing a copy of The Secret. I have never been able to not read anything thats printed so I asked to borrow it for a second. I just flipped through and it clicked. I remembered what I had forgotten. I bought my own copy the very next day.
I read it and re-invoked my belief. Me and my cousin spent hours talking about the fun times we had had with him and after months we laughed. The next day I decided to eat a chicken burger… after 5 months of separation. It was the most delicious burger.
And after 5 months and 2 days my uncle came back to us, forever, never to be gone again.
My power is our power… your power…
