The Love of My Life
I’m 23 years old, and I am living proof that the Secret really works. As I watched the DVD for the first time, I knew instantly what I would use the Secret to manifest; True love. Love meant more to me than money, or power. It was the one thing I decided to really focus on, and I was determined to have it.
At the time, I was dating a man named Jack. I had fallen for him really fast, but I could tell he wasn’t feeling the same way. At first things went smoothly, but he was recently out of a 6 year relationship, and wasn’t ready for the kind of commitment I was looking for, and we ended up drifting apart. Months went by without us even speaking to each other, and mutual friends had told me that he had no interest in me whatsoever.
I felt really disappointed by the whole thing, but at the time I had just started reading the Secret. As I started reading it I realized I felt my spirits lifted, and suddenly realized I had found something that I had lost – Hope.
So every day I read parts from the book and watched the DVD, and every night before bed I imagined Jack and I being a couple. It might sound trite, but sometimes I even imagined I could feel a ring on my ring finger. Sometimes I felt silly doing it, but I figured there was no harm in positive thinking.
A few months later Jack suddenly contacted me. We started talking and he seemed really interested in how things were going with me. He asked all kinds of questions, and really seemed to listen to what I was saying. He asked if I wanted to meet some place so I agreed.
After that we started to see each other. I’m not going to lie and say it was all sunshine and rainbows…we had our ups and downs, but I noticed the downs only happened when I started thinking negatively again, or when I started to worry that I was going to lose him. Anytime things got tough, or whenever we seemed to come upon insurmountable obstacles, I used the Secret to overcome them. Even when the odds seemed completely stacked against us, we managed to come out on top, and still standing side by side.
So I started thinking positively all the time, and still kept thinking about the imaginary engagement ring on my finger.
And on Valentines 2010 it happened. We went for a drive to a nearby ski chalet and while we were enjoying the view, he turned to me, got down on one knee in the snow, and asked if I would marry him. The ring he gave me is beautiful, even more beautiful than I imagined. Even now, when I look at it I’m overcome with such gratitude and amazement at how it all fell into place, thanks to the Secret.
I am so grateful to Rhonda and her team for sharing the Secret with the world. Thanks to them I have finally filled the empty void that used to be in my life, and now it is simply filled with happiness.
