I had heard of The Secret through seminars that I had attended by way of my employer and an equity management class that I took over 2 years ago. At first it scared me and I went in the opposite direction because I did not understand it and only heard bits and pieces about it. Since then several things have happened in my life.
My Father, of whom I had a very limited relationship with, came to live with me – he was in poor health mentally and physically. My employer closed its doors and our whole office was absorbed by a National Mortgage Company. That was good. I was drinking a lot, my children’s lives were in a state of flux, especially my youngest son. I had come to the point that I was angry, bitter, and shut off to everyone. My emotions had stopped. My dreams had almost stopped. When I did dream I regarded as something that probably won’t come true… no money.
I started looking for something to help me change how I felt. I decided to go on a diet, loose 57 lbs, work on overcoming my disability, let my children find their own lives, improve the relationship with my husband which is practically invisible, improve my business so I could increase my income. That is when it happened. I was in a store looking for a yoga DVD that I had lost. I was in the CD/DVD/Book section of a Target Store. I saw The Secret CD set and the book side by side, and a book on the teachings of Tao. I went back and forth for awhile and then said, this has shown up plenty of times so let’s try it.
I left the store and immediately put it in my CD Player and started listening. The next morning I continued where I had left off. I did this for about 3 days. Some sections I would replay. I put together a book so I could make my list, record my gifts, and added pages for pictures for visualization. I then added visual aides to my cubicle at work. Every morning I woke up and recited out loud the things I was thankful for. I read a couple of readings from my Bible and then began my day, which included all the steps – Good Thoughts, Good Feelings.
On the initial list of things I wanted was the Success, Health, Wealth, and Prosperity for my children. This was included in my thoughts daily. My oldest son and daughter in law, who have 3 children, have been having a terrible financial struggle. I received a call that their car had broken down, and that just left my son’s motorcycle. He called and asked if I would co-sign for an auto loan for him. I told him I could not do that. I asked if he had visited the online auto financing sites for people with bad credit. He said he would try. I discussed the situation with my husband. He said, “Well, we could let them use one of our vehicles.” I told him that I did not feel right about that. One due to dependability and second that they do not take care of their things. He said, “Let’s see what happens.” I continued to think good thoughts for them.
Then my son asked if he could borrow my husband’s truck. I told my husband that I did not think that was a good idea due to the condition of the truck. I told him let me think about it. My feelings told me I was doing right. Then it popped into my head… why not check out auto rentals? I pulled up auto rentals on the web and the first choice was Cheap Auto Rentals. I logged on and shopped, made a reservation and called my husband. He said, “That sounds good.” I told him that I would check my credit cards to see if I could squeeze it on one. He told me not to worry he had room on one of his. So I called my daughter in law and told her. She was very happy. We made arrangements for her to get to the house and I would take her to pick up the car.
When she arrived, we left, and I put in the 1st CD of The Secret and quietly proceeded to the Car Rental Pick up. When we arrived she said, “That is so cool, I never thought of that”. I told her that I wanted to share it with her and my son but did not know how they would receive it. I told her that I knew that they had a lot of negativity and anger around them and that if they could grasp this and put it into motion their lives would be wonderful. I told her of how my feelings had changed and my life was happier as I had been focusing on The Secret. She told me that she was going to get the CD and start right away. She thanked me for the assistance of the car rental and left.
The next morning, I had started my morning with my new daily ritual when the phone rang. It was my daughter in law. She was just busting out happy, telling me thank you, thank you so much for The Secret and that money was coming back to me for the car rental. I asked her what happened. She told me that she went to check the bank to see if her child support check had been deposited and her bank balance read $4000.00. I was bowled over. I asked are you sure? She said it works, it works. I laughed and said yes it does and for them to calm down and utilize the money properly and take care of the things they need to take care of and if there was money left over fine she could repay me. She said, “Oh there will be plenty.” She told me that now they have the money for that and a down payment on a good, economical new car. I told her take her time and that I was so happy for them. I hung up and at first thought why her and not me? Then I realized that the Universe had given me what I had been thinking of. I had started my day thanking God and the Universe for what I have and then thought of the things I wanted. After realizing this tears filled my eyes and I said, “It does work! It does work! Thank You! Thank you!”
When I came down to fix breakfast for my Father I told him, and he asked what is The Secret? I told him about it and you could tell that he thought I had cracked up. So I went in and pulled up The Secret website and ordered the movie. We both watched it online. After it was over he said, “I used to live my life like that and then it changed.” I asked him what happened, and he said, “I can remember the day well when it all changed… I guess I just lost all the energy.” I told him that he has always had the energy and the he now just needed to plug in. You could tell that this was going to happen… the wheels where turning…
Thank You for the Secret!
