I profess this all the time and I'm the worst when it comes to actually practicing it. Folks, you just cannot USE the secret to get what you want. You have to live it all the time. Don't get me wrong, when things are going well, it's super easy to live it all day every day and stay positive. In the face of adversity, is when it's very difficult to stay positive. You get overcome with negativity because everything around you is negative. However, that is when it is most crucial to stay positive. Let the universe provide for you. It will do it as long as you let it. Think negative, you get negative. That's all there is to it.
This plays a part in my life tonight. I just had a relationship go down the shitter last week. This was a big one. This was real. The good parts were better than any good parts of any relationship I've ever had. The bad parts... well... there just weren't any. I'm not going to go into details about things but I'll just say that the person I was dating has a lot going on in her life. She has several situations that she's trying to work through. As it sometimes happens in life, people get overwhelmed and consumed with things and other parts of life have to get sacrificed. This is also not the way of the secret but I don't fault her or anyone else for it. This is life.
The part that's applicable to me living the secret comes into play in my reaction. I immediately took a negative turn. I visualized the worst. I fell into a hole of despair. I missed her and felt like it would never work again. and it didn't work out in the end. Just today it tied up once and for all. We did, at least, sit and talk for a while about things.
If I stayed positive, maybe it would have worked out, but then again maybe not. Maybe positivity will let it work out in the future when her life is conducive. I don't know. I don't have a crystal ball - if I did, I'd probably also have the winning lottery numbers.
So what can I do going forward? I can continue to stay positive and know that the universe will always provide for me, whether it's in finances, jobs, friendships or love. I can hope that in terms of love, I'm provided with her back in my life but that may not be the case. Maybe someone else will come my way or maybe being alone is my relationship happiness simply because it avoids heartbreak. Time will tell.
I do know that the good that's come of all of this is that it has renewed my faith in the secret. I've lived it and good things have come my way. I didn't live it; I faltered and I became negative and that's what I brought into my life.
I can't stress enough the need to live it all day, every day and good things WILL happen to you.
