Believe In Who You Are and Never Give Up!
My husband passed away on June 1, 2006, after a 4-year battle with colon cancer. Shortly thereafter I lost the business we had together and our home was foreclosed. I was being sued by several different people. My whole world seemed to be collapsing. I was depressed and frightened about what would happen to me and I began to pray, asking God to help me. I love books and bookstores and I used to spend hours there just to soothe myself and keep busy. One day I went into Barnes and Noble and came across the “Secret.” I’d been a student of metaphysics all of my life but being grief stricken I wasn’t, at the time, using what I knew would help me. The Secret brought it all back!
I began to read and do the visualizations every day. I also wrote in a journal about how I’d like my life to be. The last thing that my husband said to me before he died was that he wanted me to get married again. It hurt to hear it at that time, but in retrospect, I knew that he loved me and didn’t want me to spend my life alone grieving for him. Fortunately, I am a born optimist. I always believe that things will get better if I can just hold on!
As hard as it was at first, I began to wake up and give thanks every day for what I had. I’d start out thanking God for my eyes, my feet, anything just to get started with an attitude of gratitude! And believe me, some days it seemed as if the hounds of hell were after me. Creditors sent threatening letters every day. There were knocks on the door in the evening from officers delivering foreclosure notices, and letters from creditors suing me. I finally had to leave my beautiful home and rent an apartment. I found part-time work doing skin care and massage therapy but in times of recession, these are the services that people can do without, and they did.
After a couple of years, I began to write in my journal about qualities that I wanted my next husband to have. I also discovered the Abraham-Hicks books and tapes. I played the tapes as I drove around each day. On February 3, 2011, I married the most wonderful man in the world. Before he even married me, he bought a beautiful new home and quick-claimed me onto the deed. He also took out a life insurance policy to cover the cost of the home so that if anything ever happened to him, I would never again be without a home. He also bought me a 2011 SRX Crossover Cadillac for my birthday!
My credit rating is recovering. I retire on the 26th of May from the skin care and massage business to start a new venture in Wedding and Event Planning. I am in love and I am as happy as I’ve ever been in my life. It is all due to believing in the Law of Attraction, staying positive, working with my mind and emotions to think and feel good every day. Accepting things that I cannot change and moving forward. The Law of Attraction is an age-old spiritual truth. All of the Masters taught it. Thanks to Rhonda Byrne and Esther and Jerry Hicks for bringing it to the forefront of the consciousness of people today. Use it and prove to yourself that it works! God bless and enlighten you all!
