The Secret And It’s Magic!
Thank you Rhonda Byrne and The Secret Team for introducing such a simple yet powerful book to the world at large. I also thank all the great contributors in the book and also a thank you to all those fellow Secret admirers who have submitted their stories here which is a great source of inspiration. Last but not the least, thank you to the Universe for manifesting so many of my desires!
I was once a young happy go lucky girl till the age of twenty. I had a happy childhood and truly enjoyed life back then. Cut to age twenty and a series of negative events turned my life upside down. Far from the happy child I turned into a negative, pessimistic individual. I forgot what having control over your life meant and I was just flowing with the flow not having any faith and always expecting the worst to happen in life.
I lived like this for the next eleven years and then in the year 2007 I fell sick with an illness. Before this I always had good health and used to believe I was invincible. Today when I look back, I know I must have manifested the health issue due to my constant negativity and stress. I recovered in early 2008 after a series of surgeries.
It was around this time that my mother presented me with the book The Secret. Now when my mom gave me that book I was indeed looking for a change in my life and was fascinated by the book. I read it and was blown away by it. I wanted to put The Secret to test.
My foremost desire then was a job change so I thought I should use the LOA and manifest a new job for myself. Around the same time, my husband and me were planning a short holiday with two of our friends. I was excited as I was going on a holiday after a long time. So along with planning for the holiday, I held to my belief that I would have a new job in hand before I left for this holiday. This belief was so strong that I saw it as a reality. I had complete faith in this and I even wrote out my resignation letter, cleared out my office desk and prepared myself mentally for the new job, even though there was no job on hand.
Meanwhile, owing to actively searching for a job, among other interviews I had two rounds of interviews in a reputed organization as well. Even though I felt that I didn’t do too well in these two interviews, I didn’t let go of my belief that I would have a new job in my hand before I left for my vacation.
Cut to the day of departure.
We were at the airport waiting for the flight boarding announcement to be made when my phone rang. Yes, you guessed it right! It was the consultant calling to inform me that I had been selected for the job at the same company I have mentioned above. Can you believe it? Not only did I get a job but it was also delivered at the exact time I had imagined!! Thoughts become things!
Now since this test had been successful, most people would have continued to hold to the knowledge. However with time, I forgot about The Secret.
Fast forward to 2012 and I was again reeling in negativity. I wasn’t happy in my marriage, I couldn’t bear the constant negativity from my in-laws anymore and also as a couple, my husband and me were not connecting well. This had been going on for a long time but now I felt enough is enough, I can’t bear to carry on like this.
Just then I remembered about The Secret.
I re-read The Secret and also read The Magic and started using gratitude in a big way and everything came back to me. I just desired that my relationship with my husband must improve and that all the negative people in my life should leave me alone.
I don’t know how it happened, but slowly my husband and me started connecting like never before and where once my constant complaint was he never paid attention to me, he suddenly became very loving and caring towards me.
Suddenly my interactions with my mother- in-law who was never nice to me and would constantly be nasty towards me, reduced. Slowly and steadily she bothered me less and less! Once in a while when I did have to interact with her, anything nasty that she said just bounced off me like a ball!
Both my wishes to have a great relationship with my husband and for negative people to stop bothering me got manifested with no efforts on my part except for having gratitude for all good things in my life.
From my experience I can say this thing is for real. Never lose faith and never stop believing. Faith can indeed move mountains. Just Ask, Believe and Receive. Remember to have gratitude. Everything that you want in your life can be had.
You deserve the best life!
