The LOA Is Real!
I can’t say that I have struggled my entire life because I know there are others that have had it so much worse, but still, there have been times that have been tough for me. I read The Secret many years ago and tried to understand and focus on the message and meaning. I really put it into play a few years back.
I needed a car. Bad. When my daughter would speak poorly of ours, I would tell her not to do that. I would remind her to be thankful for it. I would remind her that we were lucky to have it. I started focusing my thoughts on a new car. I would look online and “design” my new vehicle on the car websites, as if I was about to buy one. I focused strongly on it. I would picture it in my mind and I also would ‘drive’ it in my mind. I would do all the things The Secret taught me.
Long story short, one day while sitting at work, my boss came in and said to me that I was eligible to get a vehicle. It would be mine, not a company car. It would be in my own name and also paid in full and I would have a budget of $40k to work with! This all happened on April Fools day so it took some convincing for me to believe it!
Then I also started focusing on owning a home. I knew it was going to take nearly a miracle for it to happen but I focused. I looked at real estate weekly. I knew every home in my area. I would look at completely unrealistic homes that were way out of my price range, only because it was exciting. I would also look at complete dumps that needed a ton of work. I imagined myself living in all those homes. I focused on the work that I would do. I focused on where my furniture would go. I focused on walking into those homes and feeling exactly what I would feel walking in every single day. I would drive by and look. I would pull into the driveways if I knew no one lived there and I would even look in windows. Sometimes I would take a photo of my car in the driveway. I was diligent. I would show my daughter these homes and I know she started to grow tired of it. I would always just tell her to believe because it would happen.
Well a couple of years into my complete focus on a home, my company went through an acquisition and I was given a bonus of the exact amount I needed for a beautiful home. I purchased the home with cash. I know my story feels unreal but it was and is the most amazing feeling knowing that if you focus and constantly pull in good thoughts, the Universe will provide these gifts to you. I am forever grateful for learning The Secret.
