In December 2009 I picked up a copy of The Secret from my bookstore. I had just gone through a really tough break-up with my boyfriend. We had been together for 3 years, and after all that time I found out he had lied to and betrayed me throughout the relationship. My grandmother and my uncle passed away within a month of each other. I was heartbroken. I read The Secret and tried to apply it to my life, but for some reason I just couldn’t get it. I put it down and forgot about it for a full year.
In January 2011, I picked it up again and decided that I was really going to work with the law of attraction to manifest my goals. I had a lot of anticipated goals for that year (all of which I’ve achieved), including a 3,000 mile move across the USA and getting accepted into a prestigious doctorate program. I decided that I was finally ready to be in a healthy relationship.
A few days into reading The Secret I met a man at work. We were introduced, but we really didn’t speak. We were both shy and the conversation didn’t really go anywhere. Even though we didn’t speak, I felt this electrical connection with him. It is very difficult to explain, but I had never felt it before. I could picture our future together, and for the first time in my life I had unwavering faith that we would be together. There was just one problem. We barely spoke and had not exchanged numbers. I didn’t see him again, and I left my job to go back to school for the semester. Even though to most people it would seem like the odds were against them, I had a sense that it would all fall into place.
About four weeks later I received a text message from him! He had gotten my number from a family member, and we have not stopped talking since. As we got to know each other better I learned that he too felt that same electrical connection. And guess what? He was putting the principles of The Secret into his life too, though he didn’t know these ideas came from The Secret!! He accompanied me on my cross-country move and we live a beautiful, healthy, and happy life together. In 8 months we will be married. Our story is proof that with enough faith and love, anything is possible. If you are trying to manifest a healthy relationship, come from a place of faith, not desperation. Show love in order to be loved!
