Not long ago, I was in a financial mess–a big one. I owed around $12,000 to credit card companies and to the government for back taxes. I used to drive buses for a living, but I had lost my job, which meant that I didn’t have a good reference to help me get another.
Around this time I was introduced to the movie and book The Secret. At first, after hearing about it, I was skeptical. However, I thought, What have I got to lose? I was in no way prepared for the changes that were about to occur.
Each morning after buying the movie I woke up and watched it. I then bought the book and used the “Gratitude Now” section to write about all of the things I still had that I was grateful for: a roof over my head, food, clothing, etc. Then, on the “Gratitude Intention” section, I wrote about the things I wanted to attract (money, a job, to finish my education, to take my spouse on a holiday, etc.). I wrote those sentences as if I had already been given them and as I did so, using visualization techniques written about in the book, I felt the feeling of having them, too. After that, I downloaded the blank check template from the Secret website and wrote in the amount of $15,000. I got into the state of believing that the money was mine, even though I did not know where that money was coming from.
And then, it happened. One morning about three months later I received a letter from an unknown company saying they would like to talk to me about some compensation from an incident that took place seven years ago when a plumber flooded my house and ruined my furniture. I had reported it, then heard that the company had changed names and hadn’t pursue it further. Now, according to this man’s instructions, I returned the signed letter with a copy of my identification and proof of address.
And within two weeks I received a check for $15,347.
