The Home Of All Homes.
When I first heard about The Secret I was a very religious person and so I did not pay very close attention for that reason. As time went on I saw the film and read the book. Happily I decided to give it a try as I had found a scripture in the Bible that seemed to relate to what I learned from The Secret. I wrote out the kind of home that I wanted and the place where I wanted the home to be located.
After calling a realtor, a home that was not even on the market was being sold by the seller who was trying to prepare the home for sale. Upon arrival the home was perfect. It was not until later that I realized that I had forgot to ask for some accessible necessities such as a ramp and wider than usual doors. After the approval for the home came I requested a ramp and wider doors which happened during the renovation on the home. Our previous home had not sold so I relied upon what I had learned in watching The Secret. We received news that our home had been sold and we were no longer having to carry two mortgages.
Being human I had forgotten to practice what I learned on a daily basis because everything seemed fine. A buyout and then a merger of the company where my husband was employed happened all within a matter of months but we were certain he would find another position. The unthinkable happened and my husband was surplussed from his position with a company where he had worked for 14 years. We were beside ourselves and I felt I did not have the time to make lists on pieces of paper. I immediately began to help my husband apply for jobs. For several years my husband worked as a private contractor and everything was fine until our home went into foreclosure. We looked for help to no avail.
Then I remembered that I had to live as if what I desired to have had already taken place. I reread The Secret and watched the film several times. Writing out lists still seemed pointless at this time so I just became extremely grateful that we were living in our home. We faced many obstacles before we were able to rent our home again. I persisted in being grateful and watching The Secret weekly.
My husband was finally offered full time employment with an awesome new company and we were finally approved to repurchase our home. Each closed door became an open window of sorts, that reminds me every day to practice gratitude, regardless of how things look. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
