Ask, Believe, Receive
I read The Secret over a year ago and instantly changed my way of thinking. As a cynical person, raised by negative parents, this was no easy feat however. I have an active imagination mixed with a hopeful attitude, so I was eager to use the law of attraction to my benefit.
Along the way to this most ultimate of gifts, I received so many things. Less than a week after reading The Secret, the parking spaces began appearing. A friend gave me gift certificates for Starbucks (my ‘free cup of coffee’ that I attracted). I started a gratitude journal, along with a collage that was my vision board. I changed my screensavers at work to pictures of things I was attracting.
I ended up attracting over $12,000, our dog, a trip to Hawaii, and 2 dream jobs—yes, 2 dream jobs over the course of this ‘horrible year in our economy’ (its only horrible if that’s what you think!).
This most recent development has solidified this way of life for my family. At first I was shy to share my vision boards and journal with my husband, who was very dismissive of the idea. Then all of the sudden, 2 weeks ago, I receive a text from him while we’re both working, asking if I will help him create a vision board. Now, it had been well over a year of me using The Secret, so this came as a shock to me–even though it shouldn’t have, considering that I had been writing in my gratitude journal that I was thankful for my happy, healthy, and positive partner.
The three of us ended up working on vision boards, and displayed them prominently in our home. My husband ended up reading The Secret, and was able to change his negative thinking quickly—to the point where he was raising my focus at times when I needed it! What a blessing.
We were out walking our dog one day when I saw our dream home up for sale. We own a townhouse as it is, and bought a year ago, only to watch the value of the condo fall. I kept thanking the Universe for such a great investment property, since the condo will double in value as the housing market picks back up. Our dream home, the one I had been asking for, was to be located in our neighborhood, so my daughter could continue to go to her school, have a large fenced in yard for our dog, but also a pool, as well as a patio and balcony. Merely a week before seeing our dream home on the market, I had marveled to my husband about having a balcony that ran the length of the entire house while driving past a different home that had that setup.
We all placed our dream home on our vision boards. I added the website featuring our home’s listing to our homepage tabs on our computer. We set up an open house with our Realtor today, and are thankfully receiving the finances to pay for our dream home IN CASH! All the while, we get to maintain ownership of our condo as our investment property.
My family and I are so grateful to the Universe and to the teachers of The Secret! We truly have the life of our dreams, and everyday keeps getting better!
