A New House in Less Than a Week
We had been searching for a new house for quite some time. Our budget was tight, and I was beginning to feel like we’d never find a place big enough for our large family, especially in our price range.
I happened to pick up The Secret, quite by accident, in the midst of this housing struggle. I didn’t know if it would work, but I was desperate. So using a technique from the book, I wrote a letter, thanking the Universe for the house it was giving me. I was very specific in this letter. I described the house as having four bedrooms, 2700 square feet, a lovely 2 stall garage, and plenty of room for the kids to roam. I also thanked the Universe for giving us this house for less than $50,000. As I was writing it, it really seemed completely unattainable – I mean, even in a bad housing market, that is an unbelievably low price for a home that size. But still, I forced myself to think of it as possible, and to believe that our home would come to us eventually.
The very next day, I started searching the local real estate listings, as I did every morning. I found a house that matched my description, right down to the square footage! The only problem was that it was priced about $20,000 out of our price range. We decided to look at it anyway, and felt immediately that this was the house for us. We put in a ridiculously low offer – less than $40K – fully expecting it to be rejected. After all, our offer was $30K less than the asking price on the house.
Three days later, we got the craziest phone call ever. Our offer had been ACCEPTED!
It was less than a week from the time I wrote the thank you letter to the time we became homeowners. We are now enjoying decorating our new house, and the kids are thrilled with their three acre lawn.
I could never have dreamed that anything like this was possible… The Secret truly changed my life, and I will continue to use it for all the things my family needs.
