Have you seen the DVD or read the book, The Secret? If you are one of the few who don't know what I'm talking about, go here to watch a snippet of the movie on YouTube.
We all know about parts of The Secret. You've heard of the Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale.
When my daughter came home for Christmas, she was reading the book Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires by Esther and Jerry Hicks.
Now the film and book, The Secret, is making the concept of the universal law of attraction mainstream.
The New York and LA cosmopolitan crowd can make fun of The Secret to their heart's content, but this concept resonates with me because I used the law of attraction recently without realizing it.
I lived in the same small house for 21 years, part of that time with my ex-husband and part with my new husband. I raised my kids in that house. It was so past time for me to move from that house and I thought about it daily. I began waking up for several hours at night and I would fantasize about selling that home and buying a big, new, beautiful home. Soon I almost began to look forward to those sleepless nights. I would think about living in this new home in great detail and would go through my daily routine in the new house in my mind. I didn't share this with anyone, except to explain to my husband that I was having trouble sleeping and that I wanted a new home. That home sold in a little more than a week after listing it and we found our dream home about the same time. There were many obstacles we had to move through to reach the goal of the new home, but it happened! Down to many of the details I imagined during those sleepless nights.
After we moved into our new home, the sleepless nights stopped. I manifested my new home - in my mind.
Have you ever wondered what sets apart successful, happy people who are able to attain what they desire? See the film and you'll gain the insight.
I experienced it. I believe it.
