The day it finally hit me…
A friend turned me onto The Secret, I think over a year ago. Since then I bought the book and read it from front to back, and passed the knowledge onto my family and friends. My mom in turn bought her own book, plus the audio CDs AND DVD, so she could make sure she was always practicing the Secret in some form.
Over the course of the year I kept reading the book and listening to the CDs, and tried to put everything into practice. I wouldn’t say I was unsuccessful, because I did notice little things would happen, just not so much of the big things.
In that year I began to consistently pray and give thanks. While this was good, after a while it seemed my prayers were more out of repetition as opposed to belief. I realized I needed to change something.
I got back into the practice of feeling consistently positive no matter what was going on, and remembering to give things. I was always giving thanks, but I put more thought and energy into my gratitude. I also finally forgave a friend and let go of our past, because I knew it was something that was holding me back from achieving the bigger things in my life, and in fact our relationship now is the strongest it has been in the last 3 years. I finally also made a legitimate vision board that I actively look at when I get up in the morning and before I go to bed. You think I would be set right?
One thing I honestly wondered was how I read in The Secret and read on here how people would believe so much that something was theirs that they would cry tears of joy because they were so happy to have received it. I honestly didn’t think that was possible for me until this morning.
When I wake up I say (aloud) all the things that I’m thankful for, and go into my prayer. Today when I got to praying for myself, I closed my eyes and went through every single thing on my vision board and gave thanks for it as if I already had it. Through doing this I started to cry, not out of sadness but tears of joy because I was so happy I had these things in my life. I opened my eyes and had tears streaming down my face; at that exact moment I realized that this is what it meant to FINALLY believe! Then I started to cry more because I was so happy it finally hit me, and I was excited because I knew all the things I want in my life are going to come even faster now.
I’m going to practice this day in and day out with all my heart, even if it means I cry every day. But I know it’ll be because I believe, and the next story I post here will be about all the things I received. I hope my story helps those who are still learning how to apply the Secret!
