WRITE YOUR OWN CHECK
I have been a believer in The Secret from the first moment I watched the movie and have been sharing it with as many people as possible. It literally changed my life. After breaking up with my fiancé, coming close to declaring bankruptcy, and having to move back in with my parents, I figured that my life as I knew it was over. The Secret changed all that – in particular, the blank check available for download and printing on the website.
I have been writing “New Moon” abundance checks for years, and have seen the benefits off and on, depending on how much I believed in them. So, after watching The Secret and finding the blank check from the Universal Bank, I decided to print a copy and make use of it. I put in an amount that was almost impossible for me to imagine receiving: $55,000. I don’t know why I chose that number, but I did. And I placed it on the corkboard that hung on the wall in my childhood bedroom, right where I could see it every night before sleep and every morning when I woke up.
Some days I’d actively work on feeling that money coming into my life, and other days I’d laugh disapprovingly at myself (which, I believe, is why it took so long).
Just when I didn’t think my life could get any worse (I lost my job, my mother became dangerously ill, and the relationship with my former fiancé seemed stalled and truly doomed), I received a letter from a family member informing me that I was about to receive $50,000 in inheritance.
I honestly could not have made this up if I’d tried. I thought my entire heart was going to swell up and burst when I got that news. It allowed me to get out of debt, invest, and go back to school. Next on the list is buying an income property upon which to build my business.
