After losing a very well-paying job, I moved from one temp job to another, to total unemployment, and finally, to a permanent part-time position paying $10 an hour. Then, just two days after I started, I was told that my hours were being cut in half, from twenty hours a week to ten. There was no way I could live on $100 a week.
I walked home from work that day feeling sad and discouraged. When I got into my apartment, I felt an overwhelming urge to watch The Secret, even though I didn’t have much more energy than it would take to sit and worry about what I was going to do without a regular job and more money. After I watched the movie, I got out my journal and wrote this affirmation:
“Within the coming days, I am manifesting a great administrative position within walking distance of my home. “At this job I make at least $30,000 per year. The people I work with are joyful, kind-hearted, and cooperative. The work I perform I find interesting, and I am greatly appreciated by my coworkers and supervisors. I am paid weekly, arrive on time or early every Monday through Friday, and I thoroughly enjoy every day that I go to this job. I am thankful for the inclusive and clear process that has manifested my perfect new job right now.”
I said the affirmation throughout the next day, and I could feel joy when I said it. A feeling of excitement washed over me every time I thought about this new job. I was so excited!
While I was at work that day, my cell phone kept ringing. I missed three back-to-back calls, all from the same number, and all within minutes of one another. During a break, I checked my messages, and the call turned out to be from a temp agency I had registered with a couple of years before.
When I returned the call, the receptionist said that they had been trying to reach me because they had a job for me and it would be starting the next day. The job was paying exactly what I was asking for in my affirmation, and when I asked her where it was, she said it was at a design firm that was a five-minute walk from my house. And to cap it all off, it was a permanent position.
I started my job two days after writing my affirmation, and it is just as wonderful today as it was the first day I arrived.
