Just Ask, Act, and Receive!!!
A little over a year ago I was given a wonderful gift from a dear childhood friend. He asked me have I ever heard of the Law of Attraction, and I wasnt certain so he explained and said he had a copy of a DVD for me called The Secret, which was a movie/documentary on the topic. When I first watched this film I wasnt really watching it, I was preoccupied on the internet web surfing and the movie was playing in the background. Then the introduction caught my attention, and I literally stopped dead in my tracks and came over to the couch and proceeded to watch this film.
It was mind blowing to me I would sum the movie as your personal life coach, something you can turn on when you have fears or doubts in whatever it is you are wanting to attempt, you can turn to that and feel so much confidence. It was like everything I had believed since I was a child to my early adolescences. I always believed that I was special or like I should have been born with wealth, and even though I wasnt I felt it was in my cards one day. I also believed whatever I wanted or dreamed was possible. I would always tell everyone I have a great immune system and that I only get sick once or twice a year, and that is exactly what became my reality. I could be around the flu and not catch anything from it! Anyhow it was great to have an explanation for the feelings I had as a teen. Somehow or another we all lose those feelings that greatness and good fortune is just around the corner. Some point or another from one bad experience or the lack of self-esteem for not achieving the great success for yourself you had in mind, we kind of question our worth based on our idea of Grade A success that society has influenced on us. Well, needless to say I started noticing that I wasnt as optimistic as I used to be. I was now one of those people that looked for the bad in everything. Crazy when I think of it now!
I watched it with my fiancé who is a realist. I told her youd probably believe in it if Oprah gave her stamp of approval on it Before you knew it, Oprah had a special on it the same month I was given this DVD! I said, let’s really try and practice the LOA for gain, so I asked her since she was skeptical about it just play along with me. I started doing as The Secret explains to do, by using inspired action.
We wanted to buy a house, and the market wasnt doing great and loans werent as attainable as they had been in past years for less then perfect credit. Everyone and their mother were telling us to rent a house. I decided and declared we should do what we think is possible, not what others see best for us! So, we decided to start the process of buying a home.
We started looking at homes online, and we found a broker who wasnt too concerned with our best interest – he was inadequate to say the least. We wasted 3 months on this guy, and the only reason was because my fiancé wanted to give him more opportunities to prove he wasnt what we needed! I wanted a different agent that would treat us the way we deserved, and be caring, but I didnt let the fact that this guy was not that great at what he did take me away from what my goal to be in our very first house. I kept looking at houses and imagining the actual feeling of being in it, and having breakfast in the morning, the sun light brightening up the house.
We found a house we were in love with… it was so modern and with the upgrades it was what we wanted. But the area wasnt what we truly wanted. The amazing thing about the Secret is, if something isnt in harmony with your heart and mind it really doesnt work.
And so what happened was, we loved the agent that the seller had, and she ended up being our new agent. She was the complete opposite of the broker. She would return calls, and call us! She loved what she did and you could tell she did it because she loves serving others. The other guy did it for a paycheck, so we were only dollar signs in his eyes!
Anyhow, we didnt end up getting that house, and we didnt moan about it or cry – actually we were more so relieved because it wasnt what we really wanted, and if we had gotten it we would have only been settling. So, to prove there are blessing in every short coming, you just need to be aware of them…. I told my fiancé I was going to get a great house within a month. Less than a month we were at a closing table signing our names on our very first investment property – thats what I called it, because you have to want more and expect more in order to receive more! I know vacation properties, rentals, and commercial properties are already lined up for us. And the house we got was brand new – one of the things the other house we thought we wanted wasnt. It had more square feet, more bedrooms, and a great neighborhood for our daughters. What we wanted completely. Not 3 out of 5 wants, 5 out of 5 wants. Now if we had just sat and pouted about not getting what we thought we wanted in the other house, we would have chased away what we truly desired. I dont do or say certain things that arent true to me anymore in order to please others I say and do as I please and what brings me joy! When you are true to you, the outside world doesnt affect your inside world anymore.
