You need to BELIEVE
Just a little background on my family. My husband recently graduated from USU with a dual major. I have been working while he went to school, putting my three-year old in daycare. I am expecting my second son in about two months, and we plan on me being able to stay home this time. My husband has always wanted to work for himself, and just a few months ago we set up a trading account. We’ve had good days and bad days with it, but it’s supposed to be our sole support when I quit working.
We have both watched the video and read the book The Secret. I also get the Secret Scrolls in my email. I always thought it was a good concept and that it should work, but never really put it to the test.
I finally put the Secret to the test about three days ago. My husband trades from home and I was getting ready to leave for work. We were down about $200.00 so far that morning from trading. Usually, that puts me in a sour mood for the day, but I decided that day that I was going to remain positive. As I was leaving the house, I kept saying in my mind, “Trading will be successful today”.
Several things happened on the way to work that I believe aligned me with the Universe and put me in a state of mind that I needed to be in.
As I was opening the back door, a bird flew from the neighbors yard onto her fence, and the following words came to mind (from The Secret Scrolls): “I promise myself to greet every living creature with a smile today”. I looked back over at the bird and I swear he was looking at me! It was like we were making eye contact… so I smiled at him! I felt silly and chuckled as I walked to my car, but felt a sense of elevation as well.
As I was repeating, “Trading will be successful” in my mind, I had the thought that I needed to be more specific, to actually give a number. The amount $200.00 came to mind.
While stopped at a stoplight, a fancy looking convertible pulled up next to me. When the light turned green, the young kid took off super fast and my initial thought was, “That young punk can’t afford that car.” And then I immediately thought to myself, “I can afford that car,” and then said out loud, “I can afford two of those cars!” Again, I chuckled and felt as if I were elevated again.
The next thought I had was the three steps: ask, believe, receive, and that believing is the hardest part. So I kept repeating, “I believe we will make $200.00. The Universe is on my side.” When I got to work, I kept these thoughts in my mind and started to visualize my husband’s laptop that he trades on, and could see the figure $200.00 in the spot that shows earnings for the day.
Usually Mike is done trading by 9:00, but I didn’t call him until around 9:30 to see how we ended for the day. I felt nervous and didn’t want to call him, but I kept telling myself that we were going to have a good day. When I asked him how we did, he initially said that we were up $20.00 at 9:00. I was disappointed but grateful that we ended up. Then he told me that for some reason he felt compelled to continue trading for 30 more minutes, and we ended $200.00 up for the day! I had him repeat that number 4 or 5 times because I just couldn’t believe it!
I tested the Secret, I believed, and we received.
