So thankful and my brother’s prom
A bit of a backstory: So I first watched The Secret back in 2008 when my dad brought it over for me and my siblings to watch. He’s very spiritual and always has been and wanted to enlighten us in the same way, so when he got his hands on The Secret, this was gold for him. Soon I was to find out, gold for me as well. I took to it whole-heartedly and it was the perfect time for me seeing as I was going into my senior year in high school with a 1.0 g.p.a. and lots of credits to make up.
I applied The Secret and the law of attraction because I had a strong passion for the performing arts and wanted to finish the year with choir, theater, and dance yet somehow make up all the classes I needed to raise my g.p.a. to a 2.0, and still take the required 12th grade classes. It seemed impossible and all odds were against me; especially since you couldn’t do performing arts if you didn’t currently have a 2.0 g.p.a., yet I still had confidence and visualized doing all these things and still getting my diploma.
Despite everyone telling me this is impossible, I kept my faith and successfully completed my goal. I graduated with a 2.0, got the lead for the first time ever in the school play, became section leader of my choir, invited to participate in my school’s Mock Trial, a Teacher’s assistant for the dance team, and took a musical theater course. All simultaneously while catching up on all my previously failed courses and current 12th grade course work. I even got healthier and lost 35lbs without even changing my diet or trying. So despite all the pressure I was facing, it turned out to be my best and most fun year ever!
Things were going great so I stopped my visualization techniques and went back to normal life on autopilot. Unfortunately that didn’t work in my favor and I became reactive again instead of proactive. I rediscovered The Secret when things got out of control last year. I gained back all the weight, didn’t know what to do with my life anymore, was unemployed, just getting by in college and I lost my confidence. Rewatching it set my life back in order, slowly but surly, and it’s still a process, but I’m learning again to rely on my mind as opposed to the outside circumstances we call the world.
It was really put to test last week. My little brother’s prom was approaching yet we didn’t have any income of our own to pay for it. He was so looking forward to it and I was not going to be the one to tell him no. Instead I told him yes! Whatever you believe, will be achieved. He needed a suit, the $90 prom ticket, transportation, and to pay off all his obligations from the school ($350) before they would let him go. I just knew in my heart I would get the money from somewhere and be able to pay for it somehow like my dad payed for mine three years ago.
I didn’t let anyone stress about it when he brought it up and soon we all believed he would be going and we entertained the idea that it would somehow happen. Then some events lead me to check my paypal account and miraculously someone had deposited $500 into my account. I never use my paypal so I was shocked and it was a huge miracle. I instantly had them send me a check since I didn’t have any active bank accounts, but they said it could take 1-2 weeks. I visualized it arriving in no later than 1 week so we would have it in time and guess what, it did!
With not a day to spare, we took him to get a tux. They miraculously had one available in his size in the back in the most perfect color that matched mine a few years back so he was able to use my cufflinks. He is 6 inches shorter than me so he never would have been able to use my old tux so this was a necessity. He found the books he owed the school from the past so his obligations were cleared. Friends of his were driving to prom so they let him get a ride with them for free. And last but not least, he was able to purchase his ticket even after they said they were no longer selling tickets. For the law of attraction follows it’s own rules and guidelines.
I just sent him off and it is such a blessing that I had to share this with everyone. Just a few years ago, he was so depressed he tried to commit suicide, and thank god he was unsuccessful and has now found his confidence. He was a social outcast and had to be taken out of school and home schooled and everything. Now he is going to his senior prom with the biggest grin. Life is so precious.
