I've been keeping track of my successes in my blog.
I'm manifested everything from a cup of coffee to a dream job. I went to college for graphic design, and had a hell of a time finding work in my field. There was simply.....nothing. I had given up on it, and have been working in administration since graduation. After watching the secret, I meditated very hard on getting some freelance work. Imagine my suprise when - out of the blue - an aquaintance from work asked me how I ended up in this job position, and I explained. He said "What a coincidence, I'm looking for a graphics person for a big contract I just got. I'll be in touch." I've been working in the evenings for the past month, making TRIPLE what I make at my "real" job, and enjoying the work and the challange. I continue to hold out hope that this will turn into something that will allow me to quit my "real" job.
Last year, DH had to go on short-term disability after an injury kept him out of work. We still have not received the payment (they lost the paperwork and we had to re-submit). Consequently, we've fallen direly behind on every single one of our bills. I'm lucky enough to have a group of online friends who got together and pooled some of their money together to help us out. It was incredible of them. But it was being held up in paypal. And I won't lie, I need the money desperately. We have utilities that will be shut off this week if we don't pay.
I had been in a bit of a downward spiral of feeling defeated, and haven't been practicing the secret. So on the bus this morning, I sat and visualized them contacting me to tell me the money had cleared. I visualized them typing out the email. Low and behold, I got to work, opened my email, and I found what I was looking for.
I need to ground myself a bit and visualize the check for my freelance work coming in. I need to visualize DH's disability check coming in. And then we'll be fine.
What else. I've manifested buses.
Every single day that I've remembered to do it, I'll visualize my bus pulling up to the stop as I get there. And every time I've done it, the bus is there. It has nothing to do with the bus schedule, because I leave work at an odd time and the bus really shouldn't be there when I get to the stop. But it is.
I've manifested health. Twice since watching the secret, I've felt myself coming down with a cold. I could feel the telltale signs. Swollen glands, stuffy nose, sore throat. On the bus ride home, I'd repeat in my mind "Thank you for my health" over and over. And both times, the symptoms were gone by morning.
There was something else today, but I forget what it was! I'll update when I remember.
This is fun.
Edited to add! I remembered this when I stumbled into the decluttering forum. I've been doing a major decluttering of my house. My husband is away for a month, so unfortunately the boxes and bags of "Goodwill" stuff are sitting in the garage, as I'm obviously not bussing them (he has the car). Yesterday at work I was looking up different websites to see if any of the major charities would do a pick-up. Nope, not in my area. One recently burned down, and they're dealing with that. The other has never done pick-ups in my end of the city. Bleh. So I asked for a way to get rid of this junk.
Last night at dinner, I got an annoying telemarketer phonecall. They started by saying "Hello this is the Cystric Phibrosis foundation and.." I started to inturrupt, because I'm broke and it upsets me when people ask for money. She inturrupted me to say "Oh, no, don't worry, we're not asking for money. We're raising money and are wondering if you have anything to give away. Maybe clothing, small appliances, that sort of thing." My jaw dropped and I said "Oh, perfect timing, I have about 7 bags and boxes of things to part with." She said she was happy that she hit the jackpot.
They'll be coming to pick up the stuff next week. All I need to do is mark it, and leave it in my driveway. Excellent!
