Yes, You Can Help Others With The Secret.
A while back I became aware of an area in my city that was lacking a sidewalk, a bridge over an arroyo and a safe way to cross the street. On one side of the street were apartments and public housing in which several people with wheelchairs lived, including a friend of mine. Across the street were multiple health care facilities. Around the corner where there was no sidewalk or bridge was a vibrant shopping center with several restaurants, a grocery store and just about every other service you might need. But residents could not safely get there on foot or a wheelchair;.
I kept imagining a crosswalk, a sidewalk and a bridge. I started to ask how to make this happen and ran into several dead ends. I called the city and reported what I saw was missing and what I would like to see. I understood this issue was larger than what I alone could accomplish.
Nothing happened, but every day that I drove past that area, I visualized a bridge, a sidewalk and a crosswalk. I imagined people walking on the bridge and on the sidewalk, imagined a safe way to cross the street. I would send love and gratitude towards this vision and would imagine how happy everyone was that used it. I imagined people now accessing all of the services around them.
Then one day a few years later, I was driving by, doing my visualization, when I realized there was a footbridge over the arroyo. It was exactly like the one I had imagined. I was so excited and shocked, I had not even known there was any construction in that area. Then I saw the sidewalk and then a three way stop where people could now cross safely. I was so thrilled. I parked my car and took a stroll over the small but perfect bridge.
I was blown away. Within a week I came across a reference number for my call to the city. I asked what had happened and thanked them for the work they did. I learned there was a huge issue, a land swap with another government agency that was done before they did the work and they thanked me for bringing that area to their attention because they did not know how many pedestrians used the area.
I am so grateful for the power of The Secret and will continue to visualize the fabulous world I want to live in from now on.
