Out Of Debt.
I was asking anybody up there that might be listening for help with my life and went to Barnes and Noble for something inspirational to read. I was looking for a particular book, but saw The Secret on the shelf and so bought the CD, having never even heard of it before, but felt drawn to it.
I listened to it day and night in my car, in bed, all the time. I especially liked Jack Canfield’s testimony about writing a check to himself. I had credit card and IRS debt for years and could not seem to get it down. I decided to focus on being out of debt.
I wrote a check to myself from the universe for $25,000 and spent time feeling like I had it. I would hold it in my hand and pretend it was real. I remember waking up one morning a couple of weeks later and for the first time in a long time I did not feel the weight of being in debt. I told my wife, “Honey, we are out of debt. ” She just looked at me and shrugged, like she always does when I come up with ideas that seem strange to her. I literally felt as if I had no debt and I felt happy.
The check I had written to myself was dated March 1, and I told myself that I would give the universe 30 days to send the money. I received a letter from the Labor Union that I used to work for many years before, that said they owed me $22,000 for two years of pension benefit payments that they neglected to tell me about, and that I could now start receiving payments each month. The date on the letter was March 30th. I said, “Wow, it works!”
So I tried it again. I excitedly wrote myself another $25,000 check and really believed it was going to come in. And within two weeks another $20,000 dollars came in from an unexpected source!!
I really got myself into the feeling of it and have done that with many other things too on a smaller scale. Now I am applying these principles to just having a happy life, great relationships, life opportunities, and making a list of what I want out of life. I have discovered that the philosophy of “be happy now” really works. I just keep pretending all kinds of good stuff and it just appears out of nowhere.
I did get into a dry spell for a while because I started feeling the need for things and they just wouldn’t manifest. I realized that I was not believing I had them already but feeling the lack of not having them so I am working on getting back to relaxing and having fun with it.
I am so grateful for The Secret because I see the potential for “anything is possible” and starting to believe that the universe isn’t going to run out of blessings before I get my share. I feel like I am just scratching the surface.
