When All Seems Lost.
I’ve known about The Secret for years, and have tried little things here and there, but here’s one of my biggest stories:
In about March last year I started using The Secret daily. I’d wake up and visualize what I wanted from the world, and at night when I read my scriptures I’d also write up to three pages in a notebook about things that I wanted or needed. Every thing I asked for came to me in some way or another.
I prayed and prayed that a new car for my mom would just appear in the driveway.
We could not make ends meet, and our old minivan was literally falling apart at the seams. I’d go to bed thinking “I’m so happy we have our new car!”
One day while she was out and I was the only one home, two cars pulled up, one parking in her usual spot. A man came to the door all smiling and happy and said “Is [my mom’s name] here?” I thought it was the electricity guys coming to tell us they were cutting us off, so I prayed in my heart it was something good. I told him no, but she would be back soon. He told the guy coming from the second car (which I thought was adorable) that she wasn’t here. They thanked me and left.
When my mom got home I rushed to tell her what happened, and we both just sat and tried not to cry. Things had been hard and we didn’t need something worse now.
We headed out to go somewhere (I forget where) and the same two cars were going around the corner while we were. I said “Mom, those are the guys!” And she rolled down her window and said they had seen me earlier. The man said “Oh, can you turn around? We have a surprise for you!” So we drove around the block to make it easier, and we both prayed it wouldn’t be bad.
We all parked in front of the house and got out of our cars. Mom and I walked over to them and the man said, gesturing to the pretty blue car, “This is your new car!”
My jaw dropped and we were just in shock. The younger man was so excited, he said he had been dying to meet my mom. Apparently for the two weeks before that moment (which was in July), someone had anonymously been in contact with the dealership to buy us this car. We couldn’t believe our ears! Then what the first man said just hit home. He said “Wow, you must be a really good person! The one buying you the car just kept saying how great you are.”
After they left we went home and just cried. They gave us $12 and took the old rusty minivan off our hands, free of hassle. The muffler had just fallen off a few days before and it pained us to even look at it.
Everyone at the dealership was excited for us because they had never heard of or experienced anything like this at all. We had no payments, no money was exchanged. Everything was covered, we even had a full tank of gas.
The next day we took a trip to see my brother who was at camp. 🙂
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.
