The Secret Changed My Life
I am so happy and grateful to tell you my story!!!
In January 2007 I was a physical and emotional wreck. At age 51 I felt my life was almost at its end. At that time I lived in San Francisco, California – which had been my home for almost 16 years. My husband had left me for another woman after years of emotional abuse towards me. I had turned to self-medicating myself with alcohol and drugs. I had a job as a legal secretary that I hated going to work to every morning. I was struggling financially, and I spent most of every day in tears feeling so helpless and lost.
Then in early February, 2007, a calm feeling came over me one evening, and I felt a message to “go home”. Home for me being Virginia, where I had grown up. So I packed two suitcases and bought a plane ticket – I left my home, furniture, all my belongings behind in San Francisco in storage, and returned to Virginia.
Oddly, I felt very calm and had a feeling that it would all be revealed to me. I checked into a motel and for the first time in my life I watched the “Oprah” show – it was the first anniversary of The Secret show. As I listened to the guests speak about the Secret, it was as if a light had suddenly been turned on inside of me! I immediately purchased the DVD of The Secret and the book…
The rest, as they say, “is history”, because I only look forward now to each and every day of my life! My personal mantra is “Focus ONLY on the good! Focus ONLY on the joy”, and my life is so different now.
I am so happy and grateful… money comes easily to me. I love myself and I love and forgive completely those who have harmed me in the past, including forgiving myself. I love sharing the Secret with others and do so on a daily basis.
The change in me is evident to others as well – when I went to visit my mother and brother and sister, they all said this was the best visit we had ever had together, and they could see the difference in me. I believe it was the Kundalini teacher Ram Das who said, “If you want to know how enlightened you are, go visit your parents”. Ha! It is true!
The odd thing about The Secret is that it is knowledge for EVERYONE, and not just a few. And I hope and pray that everyone will learn and practice the Secret in their lives. It is totally compatible with all of the teachings of Jesus Christ – the more you receive the more you give and you will yet continue to receive!
When I wake up in the morning I wake up and think of three things I am grateful for… and when I plant my feet first on the floor in the morning I do so saying “Thank” and “You” with each foot on the floor. Then at night as I drift off to sleep I say my positive affirmations… and I always have such happy dreams now.
Just like Rhonda Byrne, I have been reading everything I can on this philosophy, and it continues to inspire and motivate me to find happiness and joy, and to feel good simply by being of service to others.
