I have been conciously applying The Secret to my life for about six years. In that time I have managed to manifest a wonderful marriage, a graduate degree, a beautiful daughter, a beautiful home, a job I love, and wonderful relationships with friends and family. The list could really go on and on. I believe that the most important step in consciously attracting is letting go. This can be a difficult thing to do. And even as I write this, there are areas of my life where it is very evident that I have struggled with this concept.
When my daughter was born I was very concerned about returning to work after my maternity leave was over. (Which on a side note I was only supposed to receive six weeks of leave, and I manifested a check for $4500 that allowed me to spend another six weeks at home with her.) The job I would be returning to was very high stress, and demanding. I worked long hours for very little pay. I would cry just thinking about returning that situation. I was applying at several other places for contract work, which is a much higher pay and very flexible hours. As the date drew closer for me to return to work I became more and more anxious. I could feel the stress flowing through the center of my body.
One day while the baby was napping I began to have one of my anxious moments. I forced myself to sit in a chair, close my eyes, and take deep breaths. I began talking to myself, only positive good thoughts. Thinking, this is going to work, you will be able to work from home, with a flexible schedule, for a job that pays well. After about ten minutes I felt completely relaxed and at ease. Maybe a minute after I was done with deep breathing, my phone rang, and it was one of the places I had applied offering me a job. I had truly let go of any resistance to improving my life.
A year later, I now contract for three different agencies. I am technically my own boss. I work from home part-time, making more money than I did at my previous full-time job. I spend every free moment with my wonderful daughter.
It’s a work in progress, and I have a lifetime worth of negativity to overcome. As long as I remain focused, and realize that I control my thoughts and feelings, and the Universe takes care of the rest I will have every single thing in my life that I could ever desire.
I am eternally grateful for Rhonda and all of her collaborators. As well as all of the others that are out there spreading The Secret! I am very excited for The Magic to be released next month, and to receive more help on my path of concious creation!
