I had read The Secret back in high school and fell in love with it. I became aware that I had been using The Secret my entire life. When I was a little girl I would lay in bed every night and imagine my life as a grown woman. My luxurious home, my family, my vehicles, my work. Years went by and without consciously practicing The Secret I created an amazing life. In July of 2017 I read the book The Magic and my love of The Secret came alive again. Between the the months of July and October I had many amazing things happen. Too many to list in this submission but two stuck out for me: I decided to challenge The Secret laws.
I set out for a walk with my dog and declared to the Universe “I am going to challenge you, I want to see a five dollar bill by the time I am finished my walk.” I let it go. I went for my normal walk, no sign of a dollar bill. But as I walked up to my front door my son came running from the backyard swinging a five dollar bill in his hand that he had earned for raking leaves. I had tears. That was amazing. But I wanted to challenge the law again. I declared in front of my family “I want to see a blue balloon, a random, misplaced blue balloon by the end of the month.”. I let that go. My birthday was on a rainy October 21st. I was driving home from the grocery store, and there was the blue balloon lying in the middle of road. It didn’t make sense why it would be there but it was.
I continued to use The Secret and The Magic to enjoy my wonderful life but I craved something. A burning desire was inside of me. I had worked in an amazing corporate position since I had given birth to my children. It was an amazing job, great people, and challenging but I noticed every time I would walk into my children’s daycare my heart would light on fire. I wanted to work in a daycare. That was my purpose in life. I wanted to be a loving, provider for children while their parents were gone at work. I wanted so badly to be that safe, happy, loving adult role model for these children. I knew what it was like being a working mom and having to think about who was watching your children while you were gone. The guilt and the stress. I wanted to be that person that working mothers were so happy to leave their children with because they knew that they would be so well loved and taken care of. Every time I would think of working in a daycare I would light up. That is my purpose, my big dream.
I tried to figure out how I would make it work. With the expense of my mortgage I would not be able to pay our bills with the salary of what a daycare provider earns. In my mind, I had to pay off my mortgage. That would lower our expenses enough so that I could work in a daycare and still have money to provide for my family. So, I decided to challenge the laws again. October 27, 2017 I declared to the Universe “I want the $264,000.82 balance owing on my mortgage paid off by December 31, 2017 so I can work at the daycare in my hometown and be that loving, happy, caring, positive role model for the children.” One positive role model can change the the lives of many children and the children are the future. I let that go. I committed to showing up so fully in my current job, trusting that my mortgage would be paid off. I knew it would, I had no doubts in my mind so I continued to give all that I had in my current life, showing up as if it was just about to happen. And then it did!
One day, I went to the post office and noticed an unfamiliar envelope. I opened it. In there was a cheque for $264,000.82! I cried! I have never felt that happy in my life. I immediately went to the bank and paid off my mortgage in full. I applied for a position in the daycare and was given the job on the spot. I am so happy and grateful that I am a positive, nurturing role model for these children every day. The mothers thank me each day for caring for their children. I now teach the practices Rhonda Byrne has so gratefully shared with the world to these children. I truly believe that by touching these children’s lives every day they will change the world.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
