The Secret and The Magic
Approximately two years ago I read your book the secret and I must say that although it sounded interesting I had difficulties to believe.
About a month ago my girlfriend, with whom I was supposed to marry shortly, broke up with me and found the courage to tell me that she had been betraying me with one of my friends since a couple of months. My life fell apart and I cried for 6 days and didn’t eat for 7 days.
I call this period, catharsis, purification through pain and abstinence. I have had an almost angelic revelation and saw my totem in my dream. The revelation was that the most important thing in life is not to love and to be loved in return, but to love and to ask for nothing in return. Upon this insight I lost all negativity in my life in a second. Since then I’ve gone to all people I held grudges against and forgave them and told them I loved them, not as a man loves a woman, but as a human being loving his fellow human being.
The totem I saw, was the phoenix, symbol for change and rebirth. I feel reborn and I’m rediscovering the world like a baby with all my senses, but this time my sixth sense is wide open. Everything I do or feel or think is in full consciousness. I see, hear, feel and taste things differently and I’m full of wonder at the beauty of the world surrounding me and I’m astounded at how blind and deaf I was before. My spiritual guide is the sparrowhawk, who came to me in my garden, it is my broad spectrum.
After all this happened I read your book The Magic in two days and was able to apply everything in there.
I have over 200 new friends in just the space of a couple of weeks. Some say, “They are blessed they met me”, others say “You’ve touched my heart”, another one told me “It is amazing how you can radiate love”, and finally my daughter said to me on father’s day “You are a wonder, you are intelligent, you are mighty, and I love you”. Today I saw a pretty girl and I whispered internally, “I kiss you on the cheek”. She touched her cheek with one hand, looked at me and smiled at me. I thank you, because The Magic really works.
As I said, I feel like a baby, but learning at incredible speed. I’ve new insights every minute. Your work has redirected and guided me, so I wouldn’t get lost in paths which would result in nothing. But anyway all experience, good or bad, are lessons.
I wondered, how it was that everything you wrote I was in some way already applying. I think doubt is the most difficult fear to overcome and it is doubt that will make many people fail to apply your lessons.
I wish to thank you for awakening the magic in me. I’m grateful for everything and I use my unselfish love for others to give even more strength to my gratitude in order to help others.
