Then the light came on!
My husband and I ‘thought’ we were happily settled in Cornwall in the UK, but things happened. Things turned sour. We then chose to go to live in the States (North Carolina). This turned sour on us also. We then moved again to Spain, and – if this was not enough – we moved yet again – three times within Spain, and it got even worse! The homes we had were all in one way or another taken from us. In March 2008 we had to seek help from family, as we had so little money we could NOT afford to move. We had to rely on family to pay to bring us back to Scotland in the UK.
We were owners and became ‘tenants’. We were living in cramped conditions and under restrictive contract clauses. We had no upstairs bathroom and my husband had to keep going up and down the stairs. I had no ‘space’ for my arts, crafts, and other creative pursuits, and the kitchen was poorly equipped. We were thoroughly miserable. My husband got real depressed and I was stressed. Everything went wrong. His pain from injuries got worse. My migraines returned, as did the pain from an ulcer! If this was not all ‘bad’ enough, we were given an eviction order. We were given till 30th September 2008 to move out. OMG, we thought, another move? We had NO idea where to go nor HOW could we do this.
We wanted and needed a permanent home, we wanted to have a large enough house with a garage and a workshop. We wanted peace and tranquility in our lives, and a DEEP sense of security. We believed we deserved all of this. We wondered how we would pay for it.
We were now forced to consider how to attract the type of home we wanted within our financial capability, as we are on a certain income. We are both medically retired. Money was limited.
I watched ‘The Secret’ on your website and read a lot of the things you said. But did not fully comprehend it.
However, I then set about searching for a property on the internet, where we could be ‘forever’. I found a house my husband could NOT get out of his mind! I was hung up on the cost. I kept resisting the amount it would cost. I had this poverty consciousness. My husband refused to let go of his intention to have this house. He even saw himself in it! All I had on my mind was how can we afford THAT house? What if we got there and defaulted on the payments?
We went and took a look at the house and met the owner. He was such a lovely man, a real gentle Gentleman. He offered us his home there and then and even added, ‘I want to tell you this, forget the six month term – you can be here for as long as you want to be’ God! He must be an earth-angel!!! This was EXACTLY three days after we got the eviction order! Talk about divine timing!
Then ‘it’ came to my husband. We had said we wanted a wonderful home, with all the wonderful things in it, a garage and workshop, a lovely garden, the house must have four bedrooms, a huge kitchen, at least two bathrooms, one upstairs and one downstairs. We also said it must have a study and a room for my arts/crafts and writing – and it must be in a rural setting with tranquility and serenity. It would bring us health and more. THE HOUSE HAS ALL THIS AND MORE :0) HOW LUCKY ARE WE?
As for paying for it, after we found the house recently – beginning of August 2008 – we decided to become NON-SMOKERS. The money saved has made up the difference in the cost! With change! We realised we were spending practically HALF THE COST we needed for this new home ON CIGARETTES PER MONTH, which meant we were WASTING MONEY AND WASTING OUR HEALTH. The NEW ENERGY and NEW INTENTION meant we gave up smoking and acquired the house of our dreams!
I must point out that my husband Paul and I only last night (16th August 2008) watched the entire SECRET DVD, which I bought recently, and that HAS brought everything into clear focus for us both.
And now JOY AND GRATITUDE has grown and OUR HEALTH IS RETURNING. My husband is depressed no more and I am singing and dancing and happily packing – we move in on 22nd August 2008. I am all smiles. My trouble was I understood Attraction, but took no Action! However, my husband’s FOCUS AND ATTENTION created the ATTRACTION which caused the ACTION. When I released the fear of lack – I freed myself to accept great abundance :0) Thank YOU ALL from my heart and we both wish you eternal joy and magnificent abundance in all things at all levels of your being!
We ARE now IN-JOY and are totally revitalised and inspired.
Best wishes indeed – Paul and Vee St.John-Byles.
