Declare, Believe And Act As If It’s True!
Thank you, Rhonda and your team. My life will never be the same.
My boyfriend of a few months and I had a beautiful and budding relationship. Something of fairy tales. We’d finally found each other we would both say. I am always a pretty positive person, but some residual from my pending divorce filtered into our relationship and I lost him, abruptly. It happened so fast. We had a disagreement and he cut off all communication with me. I was crushed. I reached out to him just a couple of times and he promptly ignored my attempts to communicate. It was a very humbling experience. I wanted to hate him, but my heart betrayed me and I continued to love him deeply.
I felt so emotionally distraught because of the way our sweet love ended. I began to feel negative about myself. My self-esteem took a hit. I woke up every day feeling gloom and doom, like I would never love again and that I would never find someone to love me and my children. Not to mention, I was still going through a very tough divorce although the divorce is done now. The man I was married to for over 10 years and shared 3 children with was determined to destroy me emotionally. He abused me verbally almost every time we met to exchange the children. I was beginning to concede and almost gave up my children completely just so I could avoid him altogether! Plus, I am still dealing with the financial chaos that accompanies divorce. I am a woman of faith, but I was on a downward spiral with everything that was going on around me and didn’t see any way out.
I started reading every self-help manual I could get my hands on to help me get through each day because the depression was beginning to become overwhelming. I stumbled across The Secret movie and that was just what I needed to change my mindset and to alter the course of my life. From the moment I began watching the video, I immediately changed my way of thinking. Immediately! I can’t even count how many times I’ve seen the movie. Now my confidence is soaring and I am attracting so many wonderful things in my life! Too much to share here, but I wanted to share one thing in particular.
I started a gratitude journal. In that journal, I wrote that I would hear from my ex by the next month. I really felt like if we had another chance, we could make it. We just needed another chance. I wrote how the rest of the year would play out for us and I believed that with everything in me. I “declared it, believed it and acted as if it were true.” I saved my number in my phone under his name and would text myself love messages from him. I even created an e-mail account with his name and e-mailed myself love notes. I got that from someone else who wrote in their story. I listened to love songs and imagined we would be dancing together. I told him goodnight at night. I told him good morning in the morning. I literally fell in love with this guy all over again and he was the guy that broke my heart and I hadn’t heard from in almost two months! Sounds like the stuff of a crazy person, right? But isn’t that what faith is? Believing what you don’t see? Thinking truth regardless of appearance? The truth is I am completely loveable and he will feel that or someone else who is perfect for me will see it and will be attracted to me. It was a win-win! I had absolutely nothing to lose.
I am happy to say that out of the blue, my ex e-mailed me 6 days after I “declared” that in my journal. I’d attracted some other things in my life, but when I got that e-mail from him, I literally screamed, “It really works!”. I’d been sending so many e-mails to myself from ‘him’ that I was totally surprised that there was a message actually from him!
I think LOA works when you have a sincere heart about what it is you desire, you make a decision to believe in spite of what it looks like and you let it go so that all of the pieces can form together for you.
I just wanted to say to anybody out there that is holding on to a little faith, all it takes is faith the size of a mustard seed and you can move mountains! As the Rev. Michael Beckwith said in the movie, “You can start with nothing and out of nothing and out of no way, a way will be made.”
Love and blessings to all of you.
