The first time I ever heard about The Secret was when I had moved out and lived with my boyfriend who had lost his job right when we were ready to start our lives together. I was expecting our first child. I remember watching the video and thinking how amazing it was and also how, without knowing it, I had already applied The Secret in my life with little things here and there. Actually there was a big list of things that would manifest for me and people would just say I am always lucky.
Returning to my story, things were getting hard for us, so my boyfriend, my baby girl and I moved into my Dad’s house. Years went by and I had forgotten about The Secret, until one day I remembered all about it. So I decided to buy a corkboard for my husband and for myself. I was the only one to work on it. I cut out pictures and posted them and would look at it when I went to bed or when I woke up. I was at a job that I didn’t like as much and was getting paid okay money, but always living paycheck to paycheck. So one day when I was having a hard day at work and having thoughts of leaving the place, I printed one of my paycheck stubs and used whiteout to erase the company name, hourly rate and date. I wrote that I wanted to work for the County of Alameda and get paid $24.00 an hour, which at that time I thought was so much money. I wrote the date out for June, 2013. I wrote I wanted to work in my city, have an awesome job, great co-workers and that I wanted to feel like my job was home. I also cut out a bunch of other pictures. I wanted to have another baby, but at the time my boyfriend didn’t think it was a good idea. So I found a picture of two little girls wearing tutus and holding hands. In my mind I wanted to think it was my first daughter with the future baby. But what bugged me a bit was that the ‘future baby’s’ hand almost look the same size as my first daughter’s hand and that couldn’t be because there would be a big age gap. So every time I saw the picture I would see the little hands that looked the same age. I wanted to have 3 kids, but knew that was not an option since my husband didn’t want any more children, so I just dreamed of having one more. Another thing I posted was a wedding in a beautiful hotel in Las Vegas and other little things that I liked and wanted.
A few months later I was no longer working. It was hard times in the US and people were losing their jobs left and right. The economy was bad. I was on unemployment and thanks to the President at that time, people like me that did not have jobs and could not find one, kept getting extensions to receive unemployment. I started to get desperate and was applying for jobs every day.
One day while feeling frustrated at my dining room table, I remember I saw a paper plate and wrote on it with a crayon, County of Alameda and the job I wanted. I placed it next to my bedroom door. I would see that plate all the time and read it every time I saw it.
Well time passed by and I was on my last unemployment extension and planning the wedding I wanted. My boyfriend got a new job and helped with some of the expenses. Somehow everything was working out and money came from everywhere. My family helped with so much that we were able to have our beautiful wedding at the Wynn in Las Vegas and we partied at the Cosmopolitan. In the back of my mind I knew that when we came back from Las Vegas I would have only one check left from my unemployment, but I didn’t let that ruin my wedding, I just let the worry go.
While I was in Vegas I received a call from the HR Department of Alameda County asking me if I could go in the next day to take a test for a job. I couldn’t believe it! What luck! I was waiting for 2 years for that call! I wasn’t sure if should lie or just simply tell the truth and say that I was in Las Vegas and was going to get married the next day. Well I went with my gut instinct and told them the truth. They said no problem, when you come back can you come in? I said of course. When I got back I took the test.
Two weeks later I get a call and they said we have a job for you, would you like to work for the Public Defender’s Office in the City of Hayward? I couldn’t believe it! It was the County Job and it was in my city. They told me the pay was $24.00 an hour! I took the job in October of 2013.
Time passed and one day I looked at my Dream Board and saw what I had written on that old paycheck stub from my old job. Everything came true! I was just off by 2 months!! I love my job, love the people I work for and I am so grateful for this job. Many other things manifested. It’s been 6 years since I did that dream board. We bought two homes, and now have 3 girls. Do you remember that picture of the two little girls and how I only planned to have one more baby? Well, I got pregnant in 2015 and had a baby girl. She came early into this world, but was healthy and we were so happy to have two little girls now. After 3 months I get pregnant again! We had another little girl. They are only 11 months apart. During my commute back home, for some reason I thought about my Vision Board and I remembered the picture of the two little girls holding hands. I get it now. I understand what the Universe was trying to tell me. I got the chills just thinking that it was always meant to be. That I thought it was impossible and couldn’t understand how I could have two little girls almost the same age. It was my desire to have 3 little girls in my life and it happened for me.
I could not be happier and or more grateful for everything that has manifested in my life. The list goes on for me and I try to tell people and teach people about The Secret, and that I am living proof.
