The Secret versus the IRS
By Beverly Credelle

I could not wait to share this story with everyone. I was waiting for the outcome. Just before I was introduced to The Secret my husband and I had just been hit with major IRS issues. We could not believe it. The IRS believed we owed them over $16 thousand dollars from a mishap in the year 2000. I knew that we did not owe that amount of money, but how were we to prove it. I literally had no proof because a tax service had kept my paperwork that year for their own selfish reasons. I did not know before hand the proper steps I could have taken with the government and authorities to have prevented this problem. Ignorance is bliss.
My husband and I felt trapped and we were in anguish over the entire ordeal. We began to lose sleep and fear the worst as the IRS made us set up payment arrangements to prevent garnishment of wages. The payment arrangement taxed our household budget to the max. Let me state for the record that this event happened while we were focusing on how much debt we were in. So the debt was starting to snowball before our very eyes.
Meanwhile we were faced with how to pay our son's first college bill of $4000.00. Because of the lien the IRS put on our house it stopped our refinance loan dead in it's tracks. What were we going to do? I felt the puffiness under my eyes build. I felt my skin break out in a rash from worry. Why? Because the problem was manifesting in me physically.
Then I was introduced to The Secret. It brought to life the reason behind our experience. It made me realize that we were living in the residual of our past experiences and thoughts. It made me understand that what you focus on you get. Even though my husband did not watch it for quite some time later he was able to grasp what I told him. I focused my discussion on telling him we had to stop focusing on the debt.
Together we changed our thought process about the financial problem. Together we overcame it. Well, with the help of a trusted friend with many years of tax filing experience the bottom line was we only had to pay $440.00 plus penalty. They have to return money to us now.
Thanks to The Secret a bad situation was rectified.
