The Secret Works!
My life was never easy. I struggled all through school and got poor grades. I earned 2 associate degrees but never found a job in those fields. I struggled financially because I could never find or hold a good job. Everything I did took great effort. I never set goals and wandered aimlessly through life.
In 1999 I met a wonderful woman and I moved from Nevada to South Dakota. We were married in 2003 had we had a wonderful loving life and we learned so much about ourselves. In late 2017 I started hearing about a Netflix documentary called “The Secret”. My life was okay at the time, but I wanted more out of life. I would watch “The Secret” several times every week. My wife got so tired of seeing it, but I knew that if I kept watching it, something within me would click. I tried so hard to manifest things in my life, but it was very difficult for me. I manifested small things occasionally, but nothing significant.
In April 2018, after 19 years of bliss, she died from heart failure. I was crushed because she was my soulmate, best friend, and the love of my life. My life began to spiral out of control. After my wife’s death, I created a fundraiser on Facebook and was amazed to get $500 in a couple of weeks. I saw that as a big step toward abundance. However, that was to be short-lived.
I had not worked in nearly 2 years so I could not afford anything. Due to lack of income, I had to surrender our 2 Chihuahuas to a rescue and had to sell our home on 2 acres in the country, where we had lived for 12 years. The life I was accustomed to abruptly ended and after moving into a 1 bedroom apartment, I fell apart. I began drinking heavily and I made several suicide attempts between October and December of 2018.
In early 2019, I decided to sell everything I owned, and I relocated to Bullhead City, Arizona on the Colorado River. After a month of failing to find employment or any income, I became homeless and lived in my minivan for a year and a half. I drove to Phoenix, Arizona on July 1st where I was able to get a bed in a homeless shelter where I lived until October, and then I lived with friends I had met at the shelter, who had moved out and into apartments. I found myself living in my minivan again in late January 2020 and after the pandemic hit, I was alone with no one to talk to and nothing to do.
I started watching “The Secret” again in early 2020 on my smartphone while lying in my minivan bed. Things started to happen in small but significant ways. In April 2020 after receiving my stimulus check, I used the entire amount to secure an apartment in North Glendale Arizona.
After moving in and not having anything but what fit in my minivan, I found myself without furniture, small appliances, or anything else for my apartment. I could not figure out what to do so I took out a title loan on my minivan. I was able to fill my apartment with some furniture, small appliances, and other necessities. I also adopted Jazz, my teacup Chihuahua. That was one of the smartest decisions I have ever made because she is a tiny soulmate, and she brings so much love and joy into my life.
As a result of the title loan, I lost the minivan I had called my home. I was forced to take buses everywhere for the first time in 20 years. I was miserable but The Secret was already working in my life. I just was not aware of how much abundance was flowing to me. I ended up with an even nicer car within a month. I also ended up getting rental and utility assistance from the county and city which has my rent paid through February 2021 and my electricity bill through 2021.
I have been unsuccessful in finding a good job, and I have been unemployed for most of this year. Two days after leaving my last job, and wanting a career helping people in some capacity, I decided I would return to school to earn a Bachelor of Science in Counseling with an emphasis in Addiction and Substance abuse. I have just completed week 6 with an A. I have been wanting to attend a certified Peer Support training course for over a year, and on January 11th, 2021 I will begin that training.
Thanks to repeatedly watching “The Secret” over a 2-year period, I have learned that life is effortless and that the law of attraction really does work. Everything I have, material and non-material, I have attracted into my life without effort. Things fall into place and I find myself in the right place at the right time, without realizing it at the time. Today I do not worry about anything, I do not have stress in my life, and for the first time in my life, I am doing very well in school.
I learned to have deep feelings of gratitude for everything in my life, and for what I am manifesting into my life. I do this by focusing on what I want. By having gratitude and love in my heart every single day, and trusting that everything will come to fruition in God’s time. I also took my power back by allowing nothing outside of myself to affect my thoughts or feelings. There is no longer “bad” in my life. It is all just learning experiences and opportunities to grow and better myself. I stopped judging others and have started to look at life from the perspective of others. Today I have a self-awareness of my thoughts, actions, and words, and how they affect others.
If you have read this far, I hope you have got something out of my story. It is my mission in life to bring hope to others by sharing how I went from struggling every day, and from losing everything, to manifesting everything I need and much of what I want, effortlessly. Know that you too can go from a very hard, miserable life, to a life that is full of joy, love, and gratitude. And that you can learn to effortlessly manifest anything and everything your heart desires.
