and grasp a deeper understanding of the Universal Mind
When I started writing 100 Secrets, it was dark times for me. I felt insecure and overwhelmed, incapable of fulfilling my destiny. I doubted my dreams. I questioned what I do. I doubted my passion. I doubted my path. I doubted everything I have ever worked for. I stopped trusting my gut feelings, and I made tons of painful mistakes.
I desperately needed rescuing. But that wasn’t going to happen, I believed. In my world back then, no one rescues you. You are alone. You come to this life alone, you walk alone, and you leave alone.
I wasn’t aware that I was, indeed, being rescued by so many people and so many forces simultaneously in all the ways possible and unimaginable. I was never alone.
But I felt I was; alone and forgotten. Left for dead on the way to my dreams, never to reach my destination. The path was blurry, uphill, unclear, painful. I felt I had no option but to hide under that rock in my way, which looked like a mountain. To die from the heat of the fire, that was my challenge. Or at the sword of my enemy that was my doubt. Readily letting my soul fall on the sharp end or be burned by the flame, whatever came first.
Once again, as life always has it, my lesson was hiding in plain sight.
Because what does fire do to a soul but refine it? And what does a sword do to a soul but sharpen it?
Me of little faith!
At the time, I needed to dig out the lessons I learned from Abraham Hicks, which had, in the past, filled me with clarity. I had to revisit the security and confidence I built from listening to “The Secret” on repeat for over a year.
Where was all my confidence and clarity?
I was being called to play with the big boys in the Film Industry, and I chickened out big time. I lost my way. I suddenly didn’t know what my name was or why was I here.
I took my pen and paper in a desperate attempt to figure things out. I needed to remember the lessons learned in “other lives” from my own stories. In the past, writing in tears and amid pain and confusion had always brought clarity and healing – blessing beyond expectation.
I wasn’t crying or depressed, but I was full of fear and doubt. I didn’t recognise myself. I even started a business in the Healthcare Recruitment Industr, and I convinced myself that I was really into it by investing in that business quite a lot. I was confused, to say the least. I was afraid to sum it up. I needed to find my way. I’d lost myself. After having achieved success and recognition in the Film Industry and being called higher, I went away, and I hid under a “mountain” rock.
Writing, or rewriting 100 Secrets helped me reaffirm my faith. It helped me get back on track, but who is to say that I was off track? During this crisis, I started one of my most ambitious and beloved projects: A collection of 100 short stories illustrating my perception of the Law of Attraction and how it works through the eyes of courageous and compelling characters who I might have dreamt about throughout my entire life.
Writing these stories reminded me that my life happens for me – no one else. No one is watching, no one cares. No one is waiting for me to live my life or not to live my life for that matter. I didn’t want to play with the “big boys” last year but maybe I will next year. Who cares? Right? Just I and I’m fine with whatever I decide to do.
