As I sat in Starbucks last week, I ran into someone I haven’t seen in many years and after talking for awhile, he smiled and said:
You’re not the Chris I remember.  You seem lighter, happier, like you finally found your soul.


No kidding!  That’s what he said:
Like you finally found your soul.
Was this my cue to discuss my metamorphosis?  I’ve been stung before when talking about my conversion to the person I’ve become; since discovering that Law of Attraction has deepened my Faith and Spirituality.  I decided to take a chance seeing as I don’t see coincidences anymore. Why did he use a word that I’m so familiar with with the word soul?


It’s funny I said.  You’re not the first person to say something like that.  A friend of mine said something very similar.  She has told me countless times that before becoming my friend she’d see me around town and I didn’t seem particularly happy, like I was just going through the motions of life, as if I had no purpose.


I never thought that about myself.  However, if others saw that in me I must have been projecting that attitude in some respect.


I took a breath and plunged forward; telling this person how I changed my worldview, how  discovering Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret created a monumental shift in my life.  I made sure to impress upon him that I took the best things from The Secret and found my way to other Law of Attraction sources such as Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and Abraham Hicks.  I explained how I felt that Law of Attraction was just another way of looking at God.


I stopped there for a moment to gauge his reaction.  It would tell me if I crossed a line.  Using that little three letter word can make or break a relationship.  I have first hand knowledge of that experience, which is why I hesitated to even go down this path with this person.  I knew we would get to this place if I went forward because I couldn’t NOT get here.


He didn’t seem anxious.
He didn’t roll his eyes.


I moved on.  I explained how Law of Attraction improved my well being, that I sincerely believe that our thoughts create our reality, that IF I did at one point when he knew me project that I was not light, that I was not happy it must have been something I was unaware of.  I am NOW fully aware that I feel lighter, that I feel better, that I feel more joyful, so that MUST mean on some level I knew I experienced a time when I felt dark, heavy with life.  If others saw it in me I must have shown that persona to the world.


And here I thought I was so skillful at hiding my feelings.  Apparently I couldn’t have been more wrong.  All I know now is that my life has genuinely improved since discovering Law of Attraction and that my thoughts have shifted; therefore, my world has shifted.  It’s obvious to me now that others see the change in my personality as well.  Kinda funny that it took my old friend and the friend I have now that sees me more than anyone else to point this out to me.  However now that I’m aware of it, I clearly see the change in myself.


Have you ever changed so dramatically and not been aware of it?
Has someone had to point out the change in yourself?


Let me know in the comments below.


Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.



Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;


We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
