The End Is The Beginning.
Love rules my life. Not just romantically but also in friendships and in familial relationships. My choices are always influenced by love and this story is also about love.
In January, 2014 I started dating a guy and after a month of talking, was in a relationship with him. It lasted for 6 months and he broke up just 3 days before my birthday. It was a very depressing break up and I totally lost my self-esteem and self-confidence after that. I was needy and depressed all the time and just couldn’t let go of it. I knew about The Secret from a very long time ago, but now it became my last hope. I started reading it again and I started taking it seriously. I also read a lot of stories here and tried to keep faith. All I wanted was for him to come back and I kept visualising and imagining. But it didn’t happen. He contacted me several times during this period, mostly to apologise and that helped in healing me. Slowly, The Magic in this philosophy helped me heal, bit by bit, day by day.
I took about 8 months to heal. During this time, I read a lot on The Secret and focused on my career and on applying The Secret in the best possible way in my life. In March, 2015 I started The Magic 28-day practice and followed it through. I was amazed how well gratitude worked. The results were instant. I began seeing results in small ways at first and that inspired me to carry on. I was becoming whole again. I still missed him and I wasn’t sure I would ever find love again but I didn’t care. I was beginning to love myself and to love life. To love all the small things that brought me joy.
I listened to The Power at least twice a week and my faith just grew and grew. I told my friends about it too and they noticed the changes in me. I became their Secret guide, asking them to choose happiness. The more I thought about how amazing this was, the more I saw visual clues that led me to The Secret. Whenever I was upset or losing it, I would either get a mail from this page, or see a Facebook post that brought me back. “…And so she started living the life she’d imagined” became my wallpaper. Everything seemed possible. Abundance was possible. I saw that luck was favouring me more and more and I believed that I deserved it, instead of thinking that it’s too much. I also learnt that sometimes when you visualise something and you don’t get it, it’s because the Universe doesn’t think that getting that thing will give you the outcome that you desire. I thought this was the reason for not getting my boyfriend back and time proved that I was right.
I was supposed to go abroad for a summer school but it wasn’t working out. I didn’t worry and again thought that if it’s the best, it will happen. I imagined myself going there and discovering endless possibilities. The organisation sent me a letter of rejection but the very next day, they said it was a mistake and I was accepted!
I went to Europe for the course. This was the first time I was leaving the country and I am very grateful that I found help wherever I needed it. I have amazing stories about how things worked out for me and how people went out of their way to help me in a foreign land. I just had to ask.
All I wanted now was to find love and to have the best birthday ever. That happened too! While I was there, I met my current boyfriend and he celebrated my birthday there. He is the cutest guy ever and he is all that I asked for. I can say that I manifested him into my life. I used to listen to romantic songs and feel loved and that’s exactly what’s happening for me. I have found someone who totally deserves my love. He is good looking and smart and our ideologies match too. Both of us believe that to love another, it’s important to love oneself first. That we are complete individuals in ourselves and we aren’t each other’s”better” or “other” halves. That the sum of two should not be one and should be at least two or greater.
All I do now is have gratitude for everything that I have. I still have a lot to accomplish in my life. I have to be financially independent and then I have to get together with this boy who lives miles and miles apart. We will have a lot to work with and work around, including our careers and future goals, citizenships, the gap in our cultures etc. Even then, I have never been this confident about anything. Everything seems possible. The world and the circumstances will modify themselves to fit us and everything will fall into place. I visualise my future and send my gratitude for it everyday. I feel immense faith.
The Secret is so integral to my life now that I never feel sad anymore. I run away from negative thoughts like it’s the plague. I am an expert in doing this. I have internalised the concept so much that any other philosophy, for me, just shapes into The Secret, just like Rhonda says in the books.
Thank you Rhonda and The Secret team for bringing this concept to such prominence. I am so glad that I am at the receiving end of the Universe’s brilliance and abundance and that I am able to share it with others through this medium.
P.S. Hope this was not too long of a story and thanks for reading.
