There Are No Accidents!!
My life, as quoted in The Secret, was in turmoil. I overloaded myself with work, education, and responsibilities because I felt that it was the only way my life could become better. Over the years exhausting myself in desperation, I developed a severe Anxiety Disorder, to which the doctors determined could only be treated by medication. Soon after, I separated from the father of my child and was left to find my way in a severe financial bind. My anxiety and depression worsened, turning into a severe anger problem. My daughter stayed with her father most of the time as I went to school full-time, worked two jobs, and continued with military service. I lost everything, I had to sell my dream car, live in dangerous low-poverty housing, lost precious time with my daughter, etc.
One night, as I flipped through Netflix, I stumbled upon The Secret and something inside me stirred to just take a peek. As I watched it, I was immediately inspired. I thought, “What do I have to lose?” I bought a gratitude book, the daily teachings, and The Magic. Each morning I dedicated to a chapter of The Magic and 10 things to be grateful for.
It was easier than I thought! I immediately began to appreciate everything I had. I started to feel better and my energy was returning, the anxieties I had before were slowly going away. Then the magic started happening and all these coincidences began popping up. The quotes in The Magic on a certain day would match the quotes exactly in my gratitude book on the day I was writing in it. I thought, “I’m going to use one of my checks for my vision board” and then that day, I read about the “The Magic Check”. Even stranger, I was talking to “the universe” just days before I discovered The Secret.
I asked the Universe to reveal the truth about something and, although I didn’t like what I found out, the truth had set me free. Viewing the idea of the Universe on the documentary was enough for me to believe. I asked for a solution to my academic problems. I received a phone call half an hour later from the professor I’d been trying to contact for a week. I asked to find a good job for after college and I began finding jobs I never even thought to look for. I hadn’t even attempted to write a novel in years and then, all of the sudden, I had this incredible idea inspired by a simple meme of Facebook. I have a feeling its a million dollar idea! I started spending more time with my daughter and discovering that this little girl, at the age of 5, is already showing showing signs that she’s going to do good things in the world.
I discovered that I could turn any negative thought into a good one. I could change how I feel about people, even the ones I thought I could never forgive and I even thanked them. It’s only been 20 days and my life has been impacted so much already. I’m just waiting for those big miracles that I know are already manifesting. I am hoping that soon, I’ll be able to share an even bigger story. I want to end with a simple thank you to everyone who shared The Secret, this is what I needed in my life.
