You’ve GOT To Read This!!!
My story is a wee bit lengthy but I promise you, you will be richly encouraged by the end.
Here we go:
I received The Secret on my 26th birthday last year, September 23, 2012, from a coworker I’d never met in person. We communicated only via email and the phone because her office is located 2 hours away from mine. At the time I was in the middle of a 15 credit hour semester at the University of Florida as well as working full time, so I told her I would read the book when my winter break arrived in early December.
The very first page to the very last page of The Secret made 100% sense to me and honestly is EXACTLY what my soul has been searching for all my adult life!! The concepts and teachings were spot-on and I really felt it could not have arrived at a more appropriate time!! I lived the majority of my life bitter and in a dark cloud, but for perhaps the last two years I was actively trying to live a more positive and fulfilling life and The Secret was that extra boost that I needed and so much more!
Out of the blue in January 2013, I decided I would like to have a raise and a take home salary of $1250.00 bi-weekly beginning with my first paycheck of February. So I began the process by Asking the universe for my raise, thanking the universe for my raise and continuing to live my life confident that my raise would come.
Exactly one week later to the day, and only one hour following my initial request, gratitude and release (releasing is a very important concept of the LOA, basically don’t worry yourself with trying to determine HOW), my boss emailed me and thanked me for my valuable contributions to the department and told me about my upcoming 14% raise!!! 14% is EXACTLY the amount needed to give me a take home salary of $1250.00 bi-weekly!!
Throughout the month I’ve been manifesting things here and there but here’s where the problems arose, I realized I was anxiously obsessing about the things I really wanted and my thoughts were consistently on what I DIDN’T want so things kept spiraling as a result. I was giving all of my energy and attention to what I did NOT want to happen. Such as I did not want to have my bank account in the negative and lo and behold my account went into the negative twice!
I downloaded The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles, which Rhonda credited as the book which forever changed her life. For me, The Secret is the book that forever changed my life and after having read The Science of Getting Rich, that is credited as the book that will ensure that my life remains forever changed. It is a MUST read.
My attitude towards money has always been negative. If I have excess I have worried that I would run out and that there wouldn’t be enough for a rainy day when I really needed it. And guess what? Circumstances and situations arise so that my fears are confirmed. I decided I would NOT continue on this vicious spiral and instead actively flood my mind with good thoughts and express gratitude for the things which are already visible and those yet to arrive physically. I printed and wrote two checks off of the website, one in the amount of $5,000.00 and the other in the amount of $10,000.00 and I stated that I wanted them to be directly deposited into my checking account. Well, I also recently completed my tax return and stated that I want all three deposits to show up in my account today, 01/31/2013 and I would NOT allow any thought which negated that to fester in my mind. I decided this two days before, but after receiving a very direct message on 01/30/2013 from playing the Memory Game on The Secret website, I was so pumped and excited NOTHING could dim my shine.
I went to work this morning and logged into my bank account, it reflected no deposits. I laughed and said “The day is not over with yet”. I went on about my day thinking only of the shopping and great things I am going to do with my funds starting 02/01/2013. I logged into my account after my second class this evening and yes, Y-E-S, YES! I have three deposits in my account. One for $5,000.00, another for $10,000.00 and the final one for my tax return, and the IRS did not begin processing the paperwork until 01/30/2013.
Just about everyone knows the IRS takes a bit longer to return money to taxpayers than they do taking it!! Over $15,000.00 manifested all because I got out of my own way, I stopped sabotaging myself and dwelling on the things I DO NOT want and starting living each day from a place of gratitude as though my requests were already fulfilled!! Over $15,000.00 from someone who was so negative and so stressed about money and not having enough!!!
One of the things I envisioned myself doing was taking a few hundred dollars and giving it to people as the universe led me and guided me to them. I believe Rhonda mentioned something similar she did during one particularly difficult point in her life, it was mentioned in her book The Power.
KEEP BELIEVING, HAVE UNWAVERING FAITH, GIVE YOUR ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU WANT ONLY, EXPRESS GENUINE GRATITUDE, AND WATCH THE UNIVERSE POUR ABUNDANCE INTO YOUR LIFE!!!!
