During this recession we’re in, it’s so easy to get caught up in the worry of day to day living. Everyone around me was losing their jobs, homes, etc. I was determined not to let myself get caught up in the negative whirlwind. I purchased The Secret about a year ago and started to read it, but for whatever reason I got sidetracked and put it down. Well, I decided it was time for me to pick it up again because I needed to redirect my focus. I travel during the week, so the airport was the perfect place to begin reading again. Before I started reading this book, I prayed for understanding. I wanted to be able to approach this with an open heart and belief.
Here’s my story: BELIEVE
I was expecting a lump sum of money from a tax return. I got all excited and starting making plans on how I was going to pay off all my bills, help my Mom out a little and more importantly, SAVE!! Well the IRS had other plans for me. After waiting 6 weeks for my refund, I decided it was time to contact them to find out what was going on, because I opted for an electronic refund, which should only take 2 weeks. They told me that theyre backlogged and to wait 3 more weeks. After waiting, I finally got a letter in the mail telling me they are holding my refund because they don’t have a record of me filing taxes for the past 5 years (mind you I got a refund last year).
I started to panic because I had no idea of how I was going to prove I filed my taxes. I’d always heard that dealing with the IRS is a nightmare. Anyways, I decided that instead of stressing, I would put The Secret into action. I started to recite out loud every day and even in my head, that my tax situation would work out on my behalf and I would also visualize receiving unexpected checks in the mail.
Within a week, I located a file that contained all of my prior years tax documents while I was cleaning out my trunk! Needless to say, I immediately mailed the IRS the documents and this time I visualized the documents arriving safely and in the hands of someone who would take care of me and not put it to the side until they were ready to get to it. I really believed this. Even when money issues arose, I would consistently recite and believe; I am receiving unexpected checks in the mail. No matter what was going on or how bad the situation appeared, I continued to recite this and allowed myself to feel the joy, believing that this would really happen.
Well, guess what? Believing The Secret has allowed me to catch up on my bills, send my Mom some money, and pay for a $1400 car repair – not to mention every day living expenses – all WITHOUT my tax refund! Nothing really changed for me financially other than receiving an additional $13 in my check thanks to Obama’s stimulus plan. Everything just kind of worked itself out. All I did was focus on the positive, gave thanks every day for God’s grace and BELIEVED!!
My tax refund was deposited into my account today!!!
All you have to do is BELIEVE! All it takes is faith the size of a mustard seed.
I pray that whoever reads my story is inspired to step out on faith and believe and receive your Vision.
