Okay I will admit I must live under a rock. Up until a couple months I had no clue what “the Secret” was. So in his usual fashion, my significant other informed me in the cliff notes version. The whole premise is that the energy you put out into the world is the energy you get back. Now, this is not the first time I have heard such a thing, this is a predominate theory in yoga philosophy. Now this is something that I have very much been working on the past few months. Little did I know that I was suffering from a hormone imbalance which was causing me to be extremely tired and emotional. Not know what was going on I was trying to stabilize my life. Whenever I feel like things are out of control the first thing I go to is my yoga mat. In this process I kept telling myself that I needed to be positive and things would get better. Good energy = good things, this was my thinking. So it was time to practice what I preach.
What I have come to learn, that this is a good motto to stand by! Not only have I been very blessed to have had some great people enter my life and support me, but things in general are falling into place. In the past month alone I have had three job offers in the field i am trying to move into. This is a huge success for me and all I can keep thinking is that I just keep putting out good energy and it keeps returning. Now the flip side to this all is that I have had more change in a year than I have had in the past 6. This in itself is challenging and keeps trying to knock me out of balance. There is always a fear of the unknown, and at some point you have to make a leap. I am sure everything will work out in the end, even if I do leap I have learnt that I will just do so in the most positive way possible and in return receive it back. My mat helps me everyday to stay grounded, fight fear and to stay positive. Just another reason to get on a mat.
All I can say is if you don’t believe it, give it a try for awhile, there is nothing to loose other than being a little happier everyday. And yes, I am still waiting for my positivity to come in the form of the lottery, but then maybe I should also buy a ticket.
