Good Times Ahead.
I found The Secret purely by accident. I love documentaries and stumbled upon the Secret TV program. My life has not been an easy one. I inherited my grandson’s, twin boys, 15 years ago when they first came into this world. I have raised them by myself and so far we are still moving in a forward direction. These last 2 years, through a bad, illegal refi deal on my home of 12 years, we lost our house. We picked ourselves up and we have gotten over it. Due to a loss in pay from this last recession, I live from paycheck to paycheck, just barely keeping food on the table and clothes on our backs.
When I watched the Secret, I had to replay it several times to really grasp the messages.
One day my Boys called and asked if they could have 2 friends over after school to hang out. I had to remind them that we had no food in the house, as that is the first thing teenage boys head for, once home from school, and that I had no money at all for another week for food. They would have to wait until another day. For several months that day never came as money has been allocated to other things such as a major repair on our only car.
I then sat back and watched The Secret again and decided to really concentrate and give it a try. By that afternoon, after work, I had a call out of the blue from a friend who I had loaned some money to many months ago. She wanted to pay me $40 towards the loan. I accepted and she had left it under the front doormat. When I got home, I grabbed the money and went into the house.
The boys were not home from school yet. As I walked into the kitchen, on the counter was 21 dollars just sitting out in the open. I asked the boys when they came in if they knew where this money came from. After some joking around and trying to claim it, they said honestly they had no idea, then headed out front to play basketball. While I was looking at my 61 dollars in front of me, the boys came in with the mail. In the mail, there was a ‘Re Call’ letter from Chrysler in regards to that $1200 I had to pay months ago for a repair on my car. They said it was now an official recall and that they will be sending me a full refund within 60 days!
One more thing that day. There was an envelope without a stamp placed in my mailbox with the mail that had a $350 check in it. It was from my employer and he was calling it a bonus!
It was that day, during my lunch break when I read The Secret and was told to just ask for it and believe it is yours. So I had asked for money for food. I didn’t put a dollar amount on it but I did say to give me enough at least until the next payday. That cash that I got that day got us through the rest of the month for food.
I am a firm believer in the law of attraction and all that The Secret has to offer now. I still have a hard time asking for or believing in too much as I have a “don’t want to be greedy” complex. I am so grateful for what we do have and with a strong change in my attitude and my belief in God, I know in my heart that we are going to be just fine from now on.
