Two Jobs Offers In Two Weeks!
I had read The Secret a few years ago and was able to manifest a relationship. During the year we were together, I wasn’t completely happy — we just weren’t right for each other, but it was so hard to let go.
No amount of “Secret-ing” could help, because the truth was that I really did not want to be with this person anymore.
I also was miserable at my job. What I really wanted to do was to return to my former field, journalism, but how? It’s so difficult to make a transition mid-career.
I felt stuck in both situations and so confused. But, I looked at what I did have. A boyfriend who loved me. A job that allowed me to pay the bills and health insurance. I felt gratitude and saw that I was lucky.
In July of this year, things changed radically. First, my boyfriend and I broke up, finally, for good. I felt a deep sense of relief and I knew it was the right thing for both of us, even though it was hard and I was so sad.
Three weeks later, at the end of the month, I was let go from my job. Again, a sense of relief, along with the “what now?!” panic thrown in as well. But as I drove home that day, I had a really strong feeling that this was going to end up being a good thing, and that my boss really did me a huge favor in releasing me from a situation that made me miserable, allowing me to pursue what I truly wanted.
So, shortly after both of those things happened, I decided to email this guy I was interested in. Michael and I had met on an online dating site during a point when my ex and I were broken up earlier in the year, but we had never actually met in person.
Quick side note – During this break in my relationship with my ex, I thought a lot about what I really wanted in a man and I made a list of 37 qualities that are important to me (vegetarian, loves animals, knows how to fix things, a little nerdy, good job, handsome, sexy, compassionate, liberal, easygoing…) I really focused on this person who I had not yet met, and I began to feel excited because I knew this person was out there.
Despite my unhappiness, my ex and I had ended up getting back together, so I had to close the book on my fantasy dream man at least temporarily.
Anyway, I emailed Michael. It turned out he had been thinking about me! We made plans to meet a few days later.
It took me a few weeks to realize that he truly possesses all of the qualities I had listed. I knew it was The Secret/law of attraction at work. It’s only been just over a month, but we are in an exclusive relationship and we’re both really happy.
The job part is even crazier. So I left journalism for a different field, and I ended up being so unhappy but I thought it would be too hard to go back to journalism. I accepted the fact that I’d probably just be unhappy, career-wise, forever.
After I was laid off, I thought about what I really wanted to do, and decided all I want is to go back to journalism. I looked at job ads that ONLY related to journalism. I focused on what it would be like to be in a newsroom again. I felt the satisfaction that I knew I’d feel. I got excited about it.
This is the crazy part. During the three weeks that I was unemployed, I only applied for two jobs. Both in journalism. I was offered both positions.
I sent my resume to the first place, and the editor replied within SEVEN MINUTES asking me to come in for an interview the next day. I was offered the job within a week.
I had also applied for another job at a bigger paper that was offering a higher salary. I interviewed there, but didn’t hear back right away, so I started my new job at the first place. I was working there for about a week when the second place called out of the blue and offered me the job!
I decided to resign from the first place and take the second one, since it was a better opportunity. Friday is my last day and I start my new job at the bigger paper on Monday.
I still cannot believe this. Not only did it work, it worked almost TOO well. I didn’t just get a job, I got two jobs.
Here’s what I did while I was jobless for those three weeks. I spent time every day reading stuff online about the law of attraction, I read my Secret books, made gratitude lists and really visualized myself in the job I wanted. On Facebook I changed my job title and workplace to the job I wanted, but changed the privacy settings so only I could see it. I really believed I would get what I wanted. I was filled with excitement and passion and the knowledge that this WAS going to happen.
I also did some other things to manifest not only my job, but also my relationship. I follow feng shui – not so extensively, but I do try. I applied the principles of feng shui to the areas I was working on, career and relationships.
The career area of your house is your front door. Glass, water, black things and round things all stimulate the career area. So I had the glass above my front door replaced (It was covered up) and that let in lots of natural light. I replaced my door mat with a black mat with a wavy pattern. I have a small black table in my entry way and I put a few vintage glass vases on it, and also put an old journalism textbook on the table. (Adding things that relate to the career you want will help to manifest your goals.)
For the love area, which is the very far back of your house on the right side, I placed two tall, white candles and a pink throw rug. On a set of shelves, I added sets of pink candles and a photo of Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed from “It’s a Wonderful Life” embracing.
I believe that the combination of The Secret and feng shui really made all of this happen.
My advice is just to be grateful for everything you have and really visualize yourself in the life you want. Never doubt yourself and trust that things will always work out for you.
