Thank you, Rhonda and The Secret team.
I was introduced to The Secret in 2007 and as a teenager immediately absorbed the teachings of the book. I easily applied the teachings and loved the process. Until then, all I had known for 16 years was that I was severely overweight but in the space of 4 weeks I manifested a slim body, no joke! I was on vacation and without a strict diet or exercise, I lost so much weight through the power of my thoughts. I had a new lease on life, amazed and overwhelmed with gratitude at what I was able to manifest.
But, somehow I lost my way over the years. I had lost faith and continued to manifest my predominant thoughts, to my own detriment. I had manifested bowel disease and severe back pain. I focused on the stressful things in my life; University exams, expensive medical treatments and a disastrous relationship with my father.
A few years later I begin my graduate job, where I would constantly complain. For 4 plus years I worked in an unfulfilling role, working weekends, complaining about favouritism by my boss, being passed over for promotions and piling on the weight again. I was told ‘once you have a desk job, you are bound to put on weight being seated all day’, I believed that and so it was. The back pain got worse and the stress multiplied.
Fast forward to a change in scenery. I packed up and moved across the world to London. The drastic change forced me to change my thoughts, and accordingly so did my life. I just stopped focusing on the negative. I got in shape, I manifested jobs at two of the world’s biggest investment banks and with amazing salaries. I made so many amazing, new and real friendships. I was reminded that the Universe is always there looking out for me.
As I was rediscovering how to create with purpose again, I tried manifesting sunflowers. I found myself on the train, slightly anxious as I was a bit late for where I was meant to be. Just before my stop, from the corner of my eye, I saw the person sitting near me holding a huge bouquet of sunflowers! It caught me off guard. It reminded me to stop, still my mind and appreciate just how powerful we each are and that all we need do is ask and the Universe will provide.
I hope this story reaches anyone who can take something positive away from it. Thanks again
