Cancer Almost Killed Me Financially.
I am an entrepreneur. I own a beautiful spa in southern Oregon, and it was my intention to create a healing space for people. Not just healing for their muscles and skin through facials, massage and sauna sessions but also healing for their mind and soul. It was, and still is my passion to encourage inner health in order to experience whole body health through good food and self care. Of course, being a business owner comes with many stresses, and while I preached self-care, I worked long hard hours without taking care of myself.
I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer 6 months ago and made the decision to have surgery to remove the tumor but decided against chemo and radiation. I had to stop working at my spa and everything started to crash around me financially and emotionally as I became more and more depressed about my situation. The worse it gets, the worse it gets, right?
My staff became increasingly negative and 2 months ago there was a mutiny. I lost 4 staff members and I thought I was going to have to shut down my spa, my dream and my passion. And so, I hit a new emotional low and had the dramatic realization that I was no longer the vibrant, positive person I used to be. I didn’t even know myself anymore as I found myself thinking thoughts of “it would be better for everyone if I just disappeared”, and “probably a good thing I have cancer so I don’t have to commit suicide”. Wow! Just typing that thought makes me realize how low I really was!
I had watched “The Secret” several times in the past and so, in total desperation, I sat down to watch it again. Things just had to change, there had to be some hope, because, well, the alternative was mentioned in the last paragraph.
Here I am 2 months later, thanking God for the miracles in my life! I can’t even begin to list all the wonderful events that have unfolded in my life as a result of changing my mindset and spending time meditating and intentionally manifesting!! Most people don’t believe me when I tell them that I went from being completely on the verge of bankruptcy and losing everything to manifesting over $19,000 in two months! I received a free gift of $16,000 to pay my back rent on my spa! I mean, that is a serious miracle!
Yes, there are still issues, but I just view them differently and somehow it all just works out! I have so many wonderful things coming into my future! I have manifested an actual spa retreat to help others by creating a space that allows them to learn to re-focus while being removed from the worries of the world for just a bit. Once the ball gets rolling, it’s so much easier to manifest what you want!
Anyone who is skeptical of the law of attraction should download “The Secret App” and just play with it for a month. Keeping track of your small manifestations really helps you see the power of the LOA.
Thank you to The Secret for saving my emotional life!
