I would first like to thank The Secret team for giving us the knowledge to create our own existence. And also thank you to the people who write stories of their amazing experiences with The Secret that inspire the rest of us to do the same.
My story starts at the end of sophomore year when a letter from my high school was sent to my house inviting my family to come to an award ceremony where I was to be recognized. The specific achievements were not listed. This letter was sent to other top students at the school also, so I was not surprised to receive one.
However, I did not want to attend the ceremony because the others I’ve been to have always been boring and drawn out. I even tried to persuade my mom to let me pick up my award the day after at school so I would not have to attend, but she told me I should be proud of myself and forced me to go.
The day of the ceremony before school my mom drove me to the bus stop and reminded me that I should be ready for her to pick me up to go after school. I agreed and asked her not to make a big deal out of it. Specifically, I asked for no card, flowers, or money as she always brought to previous occasions.
That night I unexpectedly received 5 academic awards instead of just the one I anticipated. As we were walking back to the car after the ceremony my mother went to the trunk and returned, of course, with a bouquet of flowers and a card to congratulate me. I thanked her, not remembering what I had tried to manifest weeks prior.
I’ve known of The Secret since 7th grade but have never directly tested it although I experienced it’s benefits before. One day I decided to try it out and manifest yellow roses, specifically, not having seen them before. I put a picture of yellow roses as my phone wallpaper and every day imagined seeing yellow roses, generating the feelings of understanding The Secret and the empowerment of being able to control my life that would come with it.
The next day at school my friend was asking me about the ceremony and if it was as bad as I had thought. After reassuring him that I was glad I went, I told him about my mom giving me roses afterwards.
Then I looked down at my phone to see how long until class ended and finally realized that I had manifested my roses!
I looked up at my friend in astonishment and he asked what was wrong and I just stared in amazement and said, “Nothing, I just realized something.”
Then, I went home and without telling her anything, I asked my mom why she bought me the yellow roses specifically out of the many choices of flowers at the grocery store. She said that yellow roses just seemed right. 🙂
I love my flowers and send gratitude to the universe every time I see them sitting in their vase reminding me of the power we have to bring what ever we want into our experience.
