I am compelled to tell this story as a skeptic who through my recent life experiences is now a true believer.
On June 8th, 2012 my wife and I decided our marriage has run it’s course. It set me into a tight spiral of emotion. I felt lost and alone in so many ways. Our families and friends were both surprised and devastated as were we.
My sister, who in her own right, is very spiritual became my crutch who literally held me up. She had tried to get me to read The Secret a few years ago but as with many of the books and dvd’s she has dropped off for me, they became a paper weight/coaster. In desperation, I decided to try anything. I started with Tony Robbins, Dr. Wayne Dyer’s “Wishes Fulfilled” and finally “The Secret”. While very different, I could not help but notice the core of the philosophies has similarities. I really connected with The Secret and began to apply it’s teaching to my daily life.
One evening, I had an urge to drive to Barrie, which is about 40 min. away. I went to my favorite beach and discovered a lot was for sale. My brother is a builder and thought, if my marriage dissolved, this could possibly be a perfect location for me. It turns out the owner was the father of a good friend of mine, and a man who had been my soccer coach for many years as a child…coincidence? I came to the realization that I have options and the ending of one journey is the start of a new one.
A few days later, I was walking my dogs. I was in a forest applying The Secret’s teachings. Suddenly, one of my dogs collapsed and started yelping. I dropped my leashes and apparently my iphone to assist him. I ended up carrying my 60 pound dog for over 30min out of the forest. He was not able to put any weight on his hind legs. While my dog was being x-rayed, I rushed back to find my phone… gone.
My dog had no broken bones or dislocation but they could not tell me what exactly was wrong. Staying positive at this point was challenging, I felt defeated and with no phone, disconnected in so many ways. Though difficult, I pushed forward with what I learned from The Secret. I believed and felt my dog was healed and my iphone was back in my hand. I returned to the trail a few days later and continued the process of manifesting my desires.
My dog began to slowly make great improvements to the point that only three days later we were going on short walks. Two and a half weeks later, I received a call from an individual who had found my phone under a bench in perfect working condition. What threw me for a loop was my phone was returned by a man named “Wayne” who shared the same first name of Dr. Wayne Dyer, who’s book “Wishes Fulfilled” I had recently read. Lastly, when I reactivated my iphone, I hit the browser button and “The Secret” book cover appeared…coincidence? I think not. I felt reconnected, not just because I had a phone once again but because I felt I have tapped into something truly amazing. I AM A BELIEVER!
I feel my journey has just begun and will be surely writing in with more success stories. Enjoy your journey, it has already begun.
