“You have to believe”
While looking for the film “Conversations with God” by Neale Donald Walsch, I was introduced to “The Secret” by a video store employee. When I watched it, I was amazed! So much made sense to me.
I was going through a trying period in my life, recently divorced, working several jobs, going to school, living off of student loans, and trying to have as “normal” a life as possible with my children… and even though I always teetered “at the brink” of my finances running out, somehow, every time, money came from somewhere. We may have lived without electricity, heat and phone service occasionally, but we always got by.
To bring “The Secret” into my daily life, I bought the CD version and listened to it every time I was in the car. I could see where my positive vision kept me going, but also where my feelings about money separated me from living a more financially stable life.
In December my boyfriend and I were in Borders Bookstore and I saw “The Secret” in book form. I was excited to see it at the front of the store and talked about some of the things I learned from my daily listening.
A few days later we went to his sister’s house for Christmas and one of his nieces asked me, rather matter-of-factly, what I thought of “The Secret”, as if we had been in the middle of a conversation about it. I told her what I believed, how it linked to so many other positive thoughts and theories, and how it effected my own life.
She kept asking how it worked, and I would simply say, “You have to believe”.
Through the course of the night, she wanted to find a Playstation DS (in pink if possible), but every store website she searched turned up empty. Still, she continued to look and I continued to encourage her. “You have to believe.”
For Christmas, my boyfriend had given her a Target gift card, feeling she could get something she really wanted there. And finally, remembering her gift card, she decided to check Target’s website. Not only did the store near her have Playstation DSs, they had them in pink!
As she left for the store that night, we all told her, “You have to believe”. And we did. The gift card she got from my boyfriend lead her to what she really wanted.
As for me, I continue to believe… and receive.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,
