Too Real For Words.
A few months ago my older sister loosely explained to me the law of attraction. I heard a little bit about it before that and never really thought much about it.
I was deeply religious for many years and considered anything like it to be a sin. I would pray daily for the many hardships in my life to end. I had a husband who was never loyal and very abusive. I had so many financial struggles I couldn’t cope. After years of praying and begging god from a desperate and pathetic place and tearfully losing my faith I became lost. My struggles became the norm and I accepted them as a part of life and just assumed that hardship was my place in the world and if I was suffering then that meant that it’s so that someone else could be happy and it was all part of the universal balance.
When The Secret was shown to me I became instantly happy.
I read and read and so much about my struggles and they became clear to me. The pathetic begging and desperation coming from no self esteem and fear was holding me back. When I realized that something as simple as “the bright side” could change everything for me it DID change everything for me.
I decided to give it a try.
I said I WILL get one hundred dollars within twenty four hours. I focused and meditated and believed that it would happen. The twenty four hours came and went. About 36 hours after I decided that this is what I wanted, my sister called out of the blue and said she wanted to give my one hundred dollars so I could do something nice for myself.
I instantly busted out in laughter because it was too bizarre. It all became real. I believed that I deserved it and I was a good person who gives so much to others and was willing to accept my fate with suffering because I believed that it was so that someone else could be happy.
Ever since then I have such a bright feeling. When I feel down I stop and and thank the higher power for the things I do have. For my patience and my enlightenment. For my health, for the blessings in the lives of the people I care about.
I no longer have the sinking feeling I used to have. I am still facing some very big obstacles but it’s as if i just KNOW that as long as I am steadfast in gratitude and hard work that I can overcome everything.
It’s been an amazing force in my life and it’s been an amazing gift.
