Ask and It is Given
I have known about the “Law of Attraction” for about the last 25 years, but have only used it sporadically when I was in a crunch. “The Secret” movie and book have renewed my interest in it.
The first time I used the Law of Attraction that I can remember is after I got a divorce. I knew I wanted to be married and so I wrote down the qualities I wanted in my “ideal mate”, listened to subliminal tapes and wrote affirmations for three months. Then I met my husband and three years later we got married.
While we were dating I won some money in the Lottery, so I bought a rental house. It wasn’t in a good neighborhood, but we rented it out for four years without incident. Then people started to break car windows in the area, and our renters got scared and moved out. We were having a hard time keeping renters, so we decided to sell it. A house two doors down had been for sale for two years. I prayed and said, “Someone needs this house and we need to sell it. Please let us find each other”. Then I wrote affirmations and the house sold within three months. A miracle in my book.
After 20 years I was let go from a job due to cutbacks. I was so depressed and wanted to find a job as soon as possible. I filled out applications and sent out resumes. I made a list of things I wanted in an ideal job. I wrote affirmations. I had it in my head that I wanted to work for a certain company and when I passed by the street the company was on, I would think, “Now that job is for me”. I wanted a job close to my home, and I got a job five months after being let go. It was a half hour away from my home. The funny thing is I didn’t get the job on the street I would always pass, but after one year at my new job, we moved to a new office. You guessed it! It was across the street from the place I thought I wanted to work at, and was on the exact street that I used to pass saying, “Now that job is for me”. Our new office was ten minutes from my home. God knows better than us what we need!
One more thing… when I lost my job, I lost my company car. I bought a used one and I would always admire silver Toyota Camrys. When I saw one, I would think, “Now that car is for me”. About nine years later, I laughed as I realized that I was driving my brand new silver Toyota Camry.
So you see the “Law of Attraction” works if you put some effort into it. That’s “The Secret”.
