The Secret found me 5 years ago; I needed some inspiration as it seemed my life was taking a very challenging new path, and I saw the book on display at work. I must have walked by it for about 2 weeks when I finally bought it for something to read on my lunch hour.
Well, It took some time to clear my mind and focus on positive things, but since then, when I really clear my mind and focus on what it is that I want, it becomes mine.
From time to time I’ll pick up the book or watch the movie when I need clarity and inspiration, and last month I did it again.
I had just given birth to my third child. I’d gained 40 pounds and was feeling pretty bad about my body afterwards. I started watching The Secret and visualizing myself losing the weight. With no effort at all (I certainly don’t have time to exercise with a newborn!) I’ve started losing weight. I weigh myself every day, and every day I’ve lost a little more. Today I actually threw my hands up and said, “Thank you thank you thank you!” I still have a ways to go before I hit my pre pregnancy weight, but I know it will happen. Every day I say thank you for the weight loss, and every day I get on that scale and see the numbers dropping!
My goal now is to be a stay at home mommy. I’ve been working for 20 years now, over half my life, and I’ve decided that I deserve to stay home and focus on my family. I work as a retail manager and the hours are long and the days off are few and far between. During the holidays I spend more time at work than at home, making the holiday season absolutely dreadful every year. (Not to mention my birthday is in December, and with the extra hours so close to Christmas, I haven’t enjoyed my birthday in a very long time).
So now it is my intention to be a stay at home mommy. I’ve been visualizing and thanking every day for it. My maternity leave at home with my kids has been phenomenal, and it is my intention to continue to stay home. For this I need financial security of course.
I made it my intention to attract money so that I could live this dream. Every day I say thank you for my new financial security, and every day I feel more and more excited about the news that will be coming to me. Today I did my tarot spread, with the question in mind of would I be able to quit my job and stay home with my kids, and all of the cards read in some way or another that I was going to come in to money, that my goal would be realized, and that I would be happy and content going forward.
I actually wrote in on my calendar the day I am going to go to my boss and tell him I’m quitting; I have tears in my eyes as I write this because I am so excited and so confident that this is going to happen. I’ve already told some of my closest friends that I will not be returning to work, and they are a bit skeptical, but excited for me nonetheless.
Thank you for The Secret and The Power. It has truly changed my life, and will continue to enhance my life no matter what it is I need.
