30 Days, a book, and $13,000
At the beginning of March I hit a financial and career low. My company – that is just me and my best childhood friend – which has been in business for seven and a half years, hasn’t been bringing in enough to cover all our start-up debt, our bills, our taxes… not even enough for anything above survival. I’d studied the Law of Attraction, read and watched The Secret years ago, but hadn’t been consistent in my offerings lately. I’ve had spurts of success with it in the past, but the spurts only happened when I practiced the principles every day, which I haven’t been doing in the last few years in a clear, committed way.
At the beginning of March I dedicated myself for the first time for real to the DAILY (2 x a day at least) practice of affirmations, visualization, gratitude, and impeccability with my words, and giving blessings. No complaining, worrying, or affirming negative realities allowed in my head or out loud, only positive statements of what I want to create.
Just one week and a half ago, the very same friend who had given me The Secret DVD in 2006 – a friend I hadn’t seen or heard from in three years (not exaggerating, she moved to Vegas in a break up and disappeared), resurfaced. She called me, visited the next day, and when she came over she brought me The Power book. This was my first sign that my affirmations, visualizations, and gratitude were working. It affirmed to me to keep up the affirmations and it confirmed to me that it works, it is working! After all, this was the same person who delivered The Secret into my life years ago, and here she was, and here The Power book was, saying, “Yes! Keep going! You attracted this!”
Reading The Power over the following week, with its emphasis on love and gratitude, has just helped me put everything I’ve been putting out there even more, and even focused me more. Every day, despite the fact that the company has $200 in the bank and I have close to $0 in my personal account, I give thanks for everything I can, everything I have. I also visualize and give thanks for what I want to receive as if I am receiving it. I affirm, I give blessings to others, I focus on love. This is my daily part. Then I release it and go about my work, doing the best I can and trying to offer more service than I’m given. All things I was doing, boosted by the info in The Power.
Yesterday, in the middle of my work day, at 2:34 pm CO time I felt a wave. Almost like a sonic boom or earthquake, but one inside me. I texted my mom, dad, sister & fiance to see if they were good or if anything major happened to them (this hasn’t ever happened before, I didn’t know what it was, but wondered if I was feeling my loved ones or something). It wasn’t a bad sensation, just a surge of energy. Everyone said they were good. Later that night my sister texted to see if I’d checked my mail. Nothing in the mail. She said maybe the thing in the mail was what I felt but wouldn’t tell me more. I thought maybe she sent me a card, or a little gift card for coffee, or something from the kids.
This morning, my dad then texted to see if I’d checked my mail. Now I’m wondering what’s going on. Nothing for a few hours, then about one hour ago I got it! A check for $13,000 for me (another went to my sister, she obviously got it yesterday). It was money from the sale of property my parents have had since they were married in the 60s, that wasn’t up for sale but that my parents’ nice neighbor really wanted and finally was able to buy. He grew up going there. My parents didn’t know what to do with it, so it sat there. They said out of nowhere he came and bought it.
I could go on about the timing for my sister and my parents which is uncanny too, but it’s too long. But I do have to mention, the guy who bought the land, my parents said was a very nice guy who loved and really wanted it. We are all blessed.
So here I am today, thanking for this real check that I’ve imagined for a month. I’ve imagined saying thank you, holding it to my heart, being able to pay my taxes, the debt, even getting my hair done finally after like six months! 🙂 Here I am doing it for real, and I can honestly say, as this is happening NOW, after thirty days of this process, it absolutely happened as a result of attracting with daily practice of love and gratitude, visualization, blessing and affirming. It had to.
In addition to being grateful for that guy, the buyer, grateful for my parents’ gift, grateful for the timing, I give thanks for all the teachers that have ever taught all of this, past and present, who I’ve been fortunate enough to be exposed to. And I am grateful for The Power and The Secret, and for how Rhonda put the teachers and their teachings together in such a clear easy way, all in one place. It’s so supportive of this practice. And I’m grateful for the friend who has brought me these books.
I hope this inspires anyone who reads this to commit to the daily practice of all of this! It works. This is so very powerful. I wanted to share: when I was on and off, my results were on and off. This happened in just thirty days. Imagine what could happen committing to this practice every day of our whole lives!!
May you be blessed with everything your heart and soul could ever want or need and may you live in your fullest expression, blessing your life and the lives of everyone around you. And may we all bless the Earth and all her creatures – creating beauty and peace for all living things.
(A nice little epilogue my sister told me on the phone just now that she got her mail yesterday at 1:30 CA time – which is 2:30 CO time. It was my sister that I felt yesterday!! And maybe the love of my parents and the fulfillment of their gift to us! :))))
