The Universe Told Me The Secret!
The best way for me to begin to tell my story is from the beginning, because there are so many facets to it. It all began when I was about 13. I have always been interested in the phenomena that make desire become reality, and went looking for the ways that made this work. I was interested in science, literature, and everything in between, including dance and art. I have always had a list for things I wanted to accomplish in my life.
When I was in high school, I was seeing the book “The Secret” everywhere. But I had no idea what it was about and never looked into it. But last year, I read the book “The Power” because I was drawn to its lovely cover in my college library. At first, none of it made sense, or I did not believe it. Deep down, though, I wanted to believe that it was true. I really wanted it to work. So I went back to my life list, evaluated and deleted a few things, and added some, and then I went along as usual and simply forgot everything about it, but not before I sent a prayer out to the Universe. I said, “Please, if this is real, be abundantly obvious, because I have a thick skull. So shout what you want me to know. ”
A few months later, one of my best friends let me borrow her copy of The Secret. I didn’t read into it too much, but instead just enjoyed reading for fun. And then, the Universe began to send me messages in everything I read. The book, “The Queen in Winter” taught me “whether you believe you can or cannot do something, you will be right”, and I read in my Anatomy book that the body is constantly eavesdropping on your thoughts, and your neuroendocrine system can turn genes on and off, control your weight and hormones and even boost your emotions! In the book “The Red Garden” by Alice Hoffman, I learned that the right people come into your life if you believe that they will, and that nothing is a coincidence. From Deepak Chopra’s “Ageless Body, Timeless Mind”, he describes a simple method of manifesting a desire with the quantum field. I have learned through physics, religions, and just plain living that the same truths are always present. They are phrased differently all the time, but their meanings are the same no matter how you learn them. Truth is true forever.
Over all, I did not “get” The Secret the way Rhonda explained it, but I learned the exact same thing because I wished to, and the Universe conspired to make it happen. It is just too cool that I asked to be able to understand something, and the Universe put everything in place, arranged perfectly so that it would make sense to me.
Shortly after, I went to my life list and figured out what was wrong with it. The list was all about the future, and I thought “why can’t I do/have/experience this NOW?” The Universe was just waiting for permission. So I did my work for the Universe (writing inspirational poetry), and each night when I went to bed I would visualize my new life. Each morning when I woke up, I would know that TODAY I will LIVE in that life. It began working immediately. Now I have three amazing best friends. I make a new friend every day. A boy whom I really like told me today that he does like me a lot. I found my perfect college major, and have begun a successful blog where I post the poems that I think will help people the most. I have a new job at the most amazing boutique in town. All of this happened within the span of a week.
By the way, good fortune has started to follow me wherever I go. Two people have referred to me as their “good luck charm!” On my life list, I had written that I want to travel. Next year I will be visiting Ireland for the first time with…guess who? My lovely friend who let me read her copy of The Secret! Everything I always dreamed of is coming true. Everything is a miracle. Everyone is connected, and we can change the world, end hunger, poverty, and war for good! We can do it with The Secret. By visualizing goodwill for everyone, living and breathing it, this will be a better place! I have helped myself immensely. I hope soon I can help others too!
If you don’t “get” The Secret at first, don’t give up. The truth of it is pretty much everywhere, and if you want it enough, the truth WILL come to you! It’s a “not-so-secret secret”. It’s not hiding. No matter who you are, or where you are, the truth wants to find you too! Happiness wants to find you! I hope my story offers some encouragement. Good luck to everyone! I’m proud of you! If you are reading my story… it means you are really on to something. This is kind of a big deal 😉 Happy trails, mates!
