How often do we ask ourselves, "Why is this happening to me?' or "Why me?"? How many times a day something happens to us that was not what we wanted? How many times have we experienced a misfortune in a day, a week, a month or a year?
People tend to focus on the negative side once a bad experience happen to them. They do not know that the mere idea of thinking about it again and again actually attracts the misfortune. I used to think about it, I used to believe that I am unfortunate until I came accross the book entitled "The Secret".
This book is about the secret to life, the secret of living the life you have always wanted. According to the book, the mind is a powerful magnet. Every thought that you think about is actually enacted sooner or later by the universe around you. The time our thoughts will turn to what we wanted depends on how strong you wanted this to happen. It is not how often we think about it but how strongly we desire this. Some people portray their desire through meditation, some through art, and others are through prayers.
I myself have experienced the gift of the secret. Earlier, I mentioned about the misfortunes that I had. The misfortunes never stopped and I found myself face down on the ground and at the verge of giving up. Then my best friend gave me a book. I read it over and over again wanting to understand it more. It is not a thick book but the sense is as big as the universe. The secret is simple. Think positively of what you desire. It may not take an immideate effect but when a one thing goes wrong, keep on thinking about your goal positively. You would not stop driving just because a bug splattered on your windshield would you? Just focus on you goal and in no time, you will be there. You would also need instruments to help you concentrate, some use yoga, others paint their desires, it all depends on how you will percieve your deepest desires.
The secret is enbodied in different ways. Einstein said it is the law of attraction, some say prayers or miracles. When you think about it, they believed in something and manifested it through their religious application of what they believe would give them what they want.
A good friend mentioned to me that devils are all around us and are just waiting for a chance to spread their negative energy and when you start to think negatively, they tend to be attracted to it therefore giving you bad fortunes. That was how she manifests the law of attraction, that is how she controls the secret. Then it hit me, people have different ways in manifesting this secret, the same was people find ways to worship God. We have to find that technique that will work on us, a routine that can be incorporated to us until we have begun attracting what we want.
They key is to learn to love what you already have. If you do not appreciate what you have you will not attract positive energy, If you always think of what you do not have, the more you will not have it. Loving yourself will give you the energy you needed to attract more into your life. After all, love is the most powerful energy one can manifest. It is because when you are inlove, you feel happy, you feel you own the world, you feel you are the luckiest person alive. That is how you need to feel to attract the universe.
Now let me ask you, how badly do you want a black BMW?, how strong is your desire to be rich?, how deeply inlove are you with your neighbor next door?. Now, have you loved yourself more than what you have always desired?
So if something goes wrong say to yourself, failures are early attempts of success. Never think of your misfortunes but look on the positive side of it. When you wake up everyday say you love yourself and that the universe loves you. Be thankful of what you have adn keep driving on your highway leading to what you desire. One day you will find yourself saying, I have what I want or this is better than what I have always wanted.
