Dream House, Mulberry Bags And A Dragon.
I’ve been wanting to share my stories for a long time and suddenly feel the inspiration to do so now.
I’ve been practising the teachings from The Secret and The Power for a few years now but it wasn’t until about 2-3 years ago that I really began living by these laws and I was marvelled at the extraordinary things I was attracting to me.
When I first read The Secret, I actually read the whole book out loud to my mum. Any spare moments we got, I would read another bit to her while she worked around the house and we would talk in depth about these amazing teachings we were discovering.
Rhonda tells us to play with The Secret and test it out and that is what we started to do. On my drives to work I would ask or state to the Universe what I wanted or intended to see on my journey, such as, certain animals, or words, and of course I would always see them; either horses in a field that were never usually there, or wording of what I asked for would be written on a lorry I passed.
One memory that really sticks out in both mine and my mum’s mind is one evening we were playing this game with the Universe and we decided to state that we wanted to see a dragon. It was late in the evening and we had the TV on in the background. We were about to go up to bed and as I went turn the television off, the most incredible thing happened. Of all things, a huge dragon on the tv actually launched itself and flew at the screen towards us, breathing fire. It was so startling that it actually made my mum leap back while I gawked at the screen. We were absolutely stunned but at the same time found it absolutely hilarious. We couldn’t stop laughing as we said how the Universe really was giving us the clearest sign that this really does work and to believe.
I went on to create vision boards which I love doing and now update mine very frequently as I attract things very quickly, I then swap that image for something else. I like my boards to reflect me and be a continuation of growth.
I like to make vision boards on my iPad so they are private and personal to me but also can be altered very quickly and easily.
Last year I started afresh and made a new one containing places I wanted to visit, positive quotes and material items that I wanted. On Christmas Day, a few weeks after this I was gobsmacked to open one of my gifts and find that it was the exact item I had put on my board, a Mulberry handbag. Now my mum and sister had never seen my vision board and had absolutely no idea that this was on there, yet they had gone shopping together and picked out this bag for me! There are a lot of different types of Mulberry bags but they picked out the very one I had selected for my board, a satchel style with the long handle. It was identical.
The final part of my story I want to share is how I attracted my beautiful house to me. I’ve always loved old properties and from the age of 20 I was really wanting to attract my first house. Every day I would look online at properties that were for sale in the area my family live in and there was a little cottage that kept catching my eye. It was old and with character, however it was far too expensive for me and also it looked very small. I had intended something bigger for me so I dismissed it. While flicking through a magazine I found a picture of the kind of house I would love so decided to put this in my vision board so that the Universe would know what I was after; a cottage with plenty of room, period features and a lovely garden.
I kept looking online and as the months passed I noticed that the original expensive cottage was still on there but it had come down in price. Still it was expensive so I carried on with my search. To my amazement the house didn’t sell and kept coming down and down in price. I finally decided to go and view the house and was absolutely astonished when I walked in at how surprisingly big it was inside! The pictures online had made the rooms look very small. In reality it had more room than I needed, far more character and period charm than I realised, with beautiful old exposed beams in the ceilings and the most stunning garden which hadn’t been shown online. It needed work but that was exactly what I had wanted as I wanted to renovate an old house.
I fell in love and I knew there and then that this was the house for me. I decided to put an offer in and at the advice from my mortgage advisor to offer another ten thousand pounds under the asking price due to the property needing some renovation, so that is exactly what I did.
To my absolute amazement the seller accepted this offer straight away!
I couldn’t believe it! From viewing the house to making the offer I had constantly looked at pictures of the rooms and floor plans and had already decided how I would decorate each room and the furniture I would put in there. I had learned of this technique from The Secret and it certainly worked for me!
What’s even more incredible that I found out later was the picture I had cut out of a magazine randomly and put on my vision board was a complete reflection of the house I ended up buying! I hadn’t noticed at the time but the shape of the house is identical with the main part then an extension to the side. All of the doors and windows are in the exact same positions and both houses have two chimneys, again in the same places!
The Universe could not have given me a house more similar to that on my vision board if it tried! The main difference between the two that I had originally thought were the sizes, however my house turned out to be so much bigger. The Universe certainly does deliver EXACTLY what you desire as long as you are clear about what you want. It brought my house down to the perfect price and gave me the exact size I had requested.
I think it’s really important to keep focusing and reminding yourself of The Secret as much as you can. I still listen to the audio book every day while I do my makeup and get ready. This really boosts me and helps me to keep positive while reinforcing all of the messages Rhonda and the other teachers convey.
I am sitting here in my perfect cottage right now as I write this. I hope my story inspires everyone who reads it. To anyone who is just starting out, start requesting small things at first to build your belief and have fun with it! Then keep going and start focusing on everything you have ever wanted and the Universe certainly will bring them to you in the most glorious and harmonious way.
Try it. It works. Truly!
Very much looking forward to many more adventures. Thank you Universe, Rhonda and everyone who has shared their stories as I love to read them.
