Be Specific, Believe, Have Gratitude And Receive.
After a night with my sisters who were excitedly talking about The Secret and manifestations, I decided to put an audio version of The Secret on the TV whilst I worked from home. Being an extremely positive person by nature, everything I was hearing already aligned with my general outlook on life. I continued to listen on my lunch break whilst I walked my dog and suddenly something I was listening to really resonated with me.
It was talking about weight loss and when all your thoughts are on losing weight you will be forever losing weight. I had experienced this first hand having been on a diet since my teens when I never needed to be. I lost huge amounts of weight back in 2020 and gained it all back over the next few years only to lose half of it again, but never being happy.
I decided to test my theory and manifest my perfect body by believing I already had it, and embracing everything that it already was. Most importantly, I would share my belief of this on social media so I was not just saying it without truly believing it and putting it out to the Universe.
Without even noticing, I was suddenly free of the life consuming thoughts of food and gaining weight. I no longer had guilt or overthought about what I was eating and I deleted every comparison photo and weight tracker. Since believing I have a perfect body I have maintained my weight and although it may still be too high for some people, to me it’s perfect and I am happy.
Being a huge optimist, I am extremely happy with my life. My children are healthy and happy, I have my dogs and cats that bring me endless joy, and I have a job I absolutely love. For all these reasons I found it quite hard to decide what I really wanted from life and what I wanted to manifest.
After some thought, I realized I want what everyone wants, for everything to be easier! I want the same freedom financially, that I had finally found with my body. I also wanted to be successful, recognized, and rewarded.
I got the proof I needed to go the whole hog and I was singing it from the rooftops. I was telling everyone who would listen how amazing I was feeling and why. One of those people happened to be my boss. By now I had figured out the fine details of what I actually wanted to manifest so as I was talking to my boss I boldly stated, “Just to warn you, I will be leaving the team. The company is going to create a new team and I am going to lead this team and make a real impact on this company.”
She didn’t question me once. She was so in awe of my positivity and was extremely supportive and happy about this new thing I had found.
An opportunity had come up in my company to do an apprenticeship so I put it to my boss to see if I would get the support from the company and put the wheels in motion.
In the next week or so my boss had some time off and the window was closing. During this time I had also hit some emotional and financial hardships but remained positive.
When my boss returned to work, I specifically called her to get my answer and get things going with this apprenticeship. I had her full support and she was happy for me to apply but there was the tiniest roadblock, which was such an easy fix. However, for some reason, this made me lose all the excitement I initially had for this opportunity and I just did not feel like this was what I wanted anymore. So in the middle of verbally making these arrangements, I was interrupted by my boss and said, “Actually, I don’t think this is right for me right now.”
She asked if I was sure, and assured me it was no problem but I was adamant I no longer wanted this, even though it was the entire point of that phone call. As I hung up the call, I burst into tears. I had no idea why but I did not punish myself for these feelings, I just let them be.
I am sure it was the very next day or the day after that, when I was once again talking to my manager just about something work-related and she told me, “I am just about to share an email you might be interested in. The company creating a new team and we are looking for a leader and staff members.”
She told me I should apply for the team leader role and that I should speak to the hiring manager to see if it was something I would be interested in.
I did exactly that. I messaged the lady who sent the original email to ask if we could arrange a time to talk about the role. She messaged me back asking if I was free right now. We spoke, I asked my questions, got my answers, and decided to apply.
I submitted my application on that Friday, the job closed the following Tuesday, and I got invited to interview on the following Wednesday.
After receiving the news I got an interview, I was filled with this crazy energy I couldn’t explain. It didn’t feel good or bad just completely overwhelming. I remembered the Universe wants to give me everything I want so I used that energy to create something that made me feel good again.
I decided the job was mine and I decided the salary I was going to be offered.
Just before the interview, I felt calm. Before starting the call I did a fast, tiny meditation and aligned myself with the Universe. I felt the interview went well. I answered all the questions and felt like I would not have changed anything about how it went. I was a little afraid I may have been too “myself”. I was told in the interview that they would make a decision by Friday which was not long to wait as my interview finished at around 4:40 pm on Wednesday.
Today is the Thursday after the interview. At 11.19 today I was offered the job at a bit below the salary I was asking for. I asked for my desired salary and in ten more minutes my salary request was accepted.
I read a few stories on The Secret Super App and promised myself when I received what I wanted I would share my story.
I am grateful, I am successful, I am recognized, I am rewarded. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
