Watching “The Secret” and reading “The Power” really helped me obtain a positive thinking pattern about everything in my life. I came to know how I have been creating my life so far. I also read the evidence of The Secret in some parallel teaching books.
This story is about how I attracted a certain situation in my life and made a new friend.
My new Interest in reading Spiritual books has lead me to go a certain place everyday to read and enjoy my life, The Lake. While reading, it came to my mind- how I’d like to make a painting for someone, I love to draw!. I wanted someone to approach me and ask me to make a painting for them or some drawing related work for them as help or as a Job. I put into practice the Procedure- Prayerize-Visualize-Actualize.
I prayed that my need to make a drawing be matched with someone seeking help in that matter. I visualized a comforting person approaching me and asking to see my drawings, which I carry with me, and asking me to help them relating the drawing. I felt like it was happening right there at the moment and felt how I’d feel: Intense Joy!
Many days passed. Everyday I’d think of it. Entertaining no “thought of it not happening” and instead, thinking of it as happening and feeling the End Result-Happiness! To feel like it has happened means that there is no more longing for it to happen. I thanked God. Felt the love that it happened. Thanked for the wonderful moment. Thanked for my Miracle. Felt Intense Joy. Retained the Happy feeling.
Then one Friday, as I sat on the bench to draw a card for my friend, I took out paper, brushes, colors, I heard a voice: “Excuse me”. Taking my things out of the bag simultaneously I looked back and there was a Lady standing smiling at me.
She came there everyday to walk. She asked me: “Are you an Art Student?”. I answered “Aspiring to be”. “Can I have a look at your drawings” she said and I nodded and handed my drawing file to her. She looked at it and congratulated me for my work, I heartily thanked her and she went her way to walk. I prayed for her, wished her happiness and sat down in the grass to draw my card. After about half an hour, she returned and told me how much she liked painting and that she’d want help in sketching it. She confirmed if i would sketch for her. With overwhelming joy I agreed. She took my number and went her way, confirming to meet on Monday and discuss things further.
I was so happy! My visualization had actualized! I was so happy and filled with joy that I just couldn’t help smiling the whole day!! One could actually count my teeth! The Joy was overflowing! The people around me could feel it too. Everybody was passing me smiles that day!
These next two days Saturday and Sunday, being at home, I let myself be affected by some negative thoughts. I felt them, even though it wasn’t related to this incident. I was feeling a bit gloomy. I shared my miracle happening with a friend and he expressed something negative. Even though unintentional on his part, caring for me, warning me to be cautious of a stranger, and I caught that feeling.
On Monday as I sat there on the same exact location waiting for that Lady, I was double minded, wondering if she’d come or not. I was sitting there waiting for her but at the same time entertaining the thought that she won’t come.
She Didn’t come.
As I came home I realized how the Law had worked again responding to my negative emotions.
I thanked for the realization, and forgot about this incident, and started doing my usual things- sketching, painting, reading and studying. I wondered about her sometimes. Trying to understand her situation. Maybe she lost my number, maybe she was busy, maybe she’s not in town. Every time I thought about her I sent her wishes of goodwill and love. Imagined her smiling face and prayed for her happiness.
After many weeks I saw her again, once or twice, but didn’t ask or say anything, Just smiled and she did the same. Then the 3rd time she saw me, she stopped me and confirmed if I was the same girl. ” I’m bad at remembering names so I couldn’t call you. I’ve had a very busy time. Just came back yesterday. What is your name?” she asked. I answered her with a smile. She updated her contacts with my name as Painting (:P) after asking me if it was okay. I assured her she could write any name which could help her remember. She again had to leave town for some work, so this time there was no day fixed.
This time I didn’t share it with anyone, just thanked god for his grace. I didn’t wait for her now. I was just happy with whatever was happening.
After a week she came and asked me if I would sketch that very day. I smilingly said yes. Excitedly we fixed our spot on the lake and she promised she’ll be back within an hour and made me promise that I’ll be there waiting for her. She confirmed that I was not feeling forced. I assured her I’d love to help her. As I sat waiting for her I smiled at the negative thoughts flashing in my mind but payed no heed. Instead I enjoyed the waiting time by reading, singing and drawing.
(If there was a photo insert here- I’d put up the photo of what I was Drawing at that time) 🙂
After 2 hours, My phone rang. She came with the Canvas Board and the picture of what she wanted to paint. I sketched that day and the following day at the same place. It was a wish come True! My desire to draw matched with someone’s desire to be helped with it.
I have come to know how this law works and continuously try to be conscious of what I feel because I know that is what I’ll manifest! Many incidents of my even the tiniest of wishes coming true are interwoven with the one I mentioned above. It’s really Magic! For me Magic is very real. I feel Science is Magic. Everything is Magic!
As I write this I’m again reminded of the Law, which is also a wish of mine. To forever be reminded of this power.”
Cheers to the magic called Life!
Wish you Happiness, Joy and Laughter!
