The thing about life is…
Ever since I was a kid, I always loved music. Singing was the first thing that I could do, but as soon as I could pick up a guitar I just took off. I went to bass, woodwinds, piano, exotic instruments, all to try to make the music in my head real. There were always little things when I was a kid that people around me believed to be wrong, and for the longest time I believed them.
I used to think anything was achievable, anything. If I saw something on TV that looked like it could be made, I thought “well, eventually it will be real.” Something happens when you enter puberty, I think. You just lose that childhood naivety. But is it really that wrong to have?
When I started making my album, I had a lot of things going wrong. Dealing with these private matters left me rather on guard, and positive feelings were scarce in my days. For 3 years I was just locked away in my room driving myself crazier and crazier with negativity and confusion. I missed the way I was when I was younger, that’s something I always went back to. How happy I used to be.
Around that time, my mom gave me The Secret as a gift. I did not read it.
When I got to a point that I just had enough, I packed my things and left for Colorado, which was another completely different story, but let’s just say it was an amazing experience.
My time there showed me how to apply The Secret, but I didn’t really call it anything.
So many times I said “I know I’ll get that job” and it would happen the next day, if not the day after that. I couldn’t explain it. Things were just looking up. Then I had some incredible things happen to me while meditating, others while being perfectly awake and aware of everything around me. I had found self realization without even realizing it. I kept reading things about this and found more and more things I had seen in my visions during meditation. It was amazing, bringing me to tears every time. The universe was sending me the answers I wanted about my life, not just material possessions. Slowly, without me knowing, I was changing into this person that felt the way he did as a kid, but thought about things in a new way.
When I got back home, due to my mother growing illness, I had some mixed feelings. I felt like I was needed here, but my fears were showing more. What if my mom died? What if this, or that, or anything I shouldn’t have focused on.
So, I saw the book. Just sitting there, waiting for me to read it.
At first, everything started to make more and more sense. I had realized so many amazing things in Colorado which changed me entirely, but this book tied them together in a way that made sense. There was no religion behind it, no science, no opinions, just an idea that made perfect sense. Like attracts like, therefore, good brings more good.
Suddenly, all these “coincidences” in my life seemed to make sense. I had been attracting all the things I wanted, and the things I didn’t want. I wish I could verbalize how it felt, but as you know, figuring things out to this point is hard to explain.
I made some goals for myself. I said I had to start small, so I asked the Universe for a job. That’s it, just a job that could help me pay for my studio so I could record my album, release it, and have the time to do so.
3 days later, I received a phone call from my friend here in Florida, and he told me his brother recommended both of us for a job at his Tax Firm. I had never done taxes before, but I had never done consumer credit counseling either until the job I had before that. So I took it as a sign. In my 3 months at the company, everything fell perfectly into place.
Next, I thought it would be great to find some new talent for my band in the company, and only a week after the thought a co-worker in my training class approached me about jamming. He ended up being not only exactly what we needed to the band, but an incredibly nice person with the same understanding of the law of attraction.
In fact, everybody in that company is taught The Secret in small ways. Most of them have all read the book. We would keep each other positive all day, treated everyone like family. I didn’t agree with the company, but I loved the people. So I was grateful for my time there, and the money that also paid for more than $6,000 worth of equipment, that gave me the studio that I visualized.
Every time I felt lost, I would just open The Secret to a random page, and every time the quote I saw first would always match my current situation or emotion. It’s truly amazing, and now I feel like I used to when I was a kid. It’s like I’m in my own reality, and no matter what anyone else tells me, I know in the end I control my life entirely, until there are things I cannot control. Then, I just focus on the things I can control.
Today, I received a call from my employer, being let go from my job. I lasted there a perfect 3 months to the day, which is exactly what my goal was from the start, before I even got the job. 3 months so I could get my unemployment, save money until I found a new job, and work on my album the whole time. So far, everything is going perfectly aligned with my plans.
I have my unemployment, I have everything I need for my studio to finish this album, and today, the day that it all came together according to plan, the day I received the call form my job, I opened The Secret to read another chapter.
I didn’t know this was the end of the book, but it was perfect. It brought tears to my eyes. The day I read this chapter was the day that my life had begun, the day I started with a clean slate and felt completely free. And when I read the chapter, and how it perfectly related to how I felt…it was so overwhelming.
It’s finally happening. My life is about to go from great to amazing. Because as you can see, today is the day that I visualized months ago when I came home from Colorado. When I read The Secret and made a goal for myself. This is it. I’m living it, and now I’m setting new goals, and I have no limits.
