(She never has money when she moves.) She has always trusted that it will work out, and it has so many times that she now holds it as a firm belief. And now, not only does she get stuff, but she gets excellent, often brand new stuff that suits her tastes perfectly! Seriously - it's so wonderful and completely unbelievable (if you don't believe in LoA ) to see it unfold. It was a perfect example for me to explain to my mother how she is already fantastic at manifesting! Oh, and this is a belief she has passed on to me, so all us mothers can rest assured that witnessing this trust in the universe rubs off on kids! (I've been saying for years that the universe will make stuff that I need appear when I need it... I just never had labels like LoA to apply to that belief. )
What a wonderful way to be raised!

Ya know, chasmyn, this is probably one of the biggest benefits I've gotten from The Secret - a realization that there's a lot more good from my childhood (which might appear pretty crappy from another perspective). All my digging into LoA has helped me see how it is that I'm able to remain so positive and trusting, and I do have family to thank for that belief! It is a wonderful gift!

Does anyone else find it hard to identify/describe their 'secret' successes? I really do feel like everything that happens in my life (good and bad) is due to my manifesting, so I'm having a hard time describing particular examples!
post #143 of 321
I've also been having memories from childhood, and adolescence about how I used LoA. Cool!

On a different note, I have to post a success story.

Some of you may know that my dd2 has had major sleep issues due to mercury toxicity. http://www.findingkate.com

Well, I've been longing for sleep for almost two years. And I mean, more than a couple hours here, couple there.

I've found it necessary to night wean dd (we also co-sleep) and after much manifesting, she is now night weaned, AND is sleeping in her own bed w/her sister in their own room!

Last night she only woke THREE times! : And while I'm feeling kind of bittersweet about all of this, I'm still happy because it was soooooo necessary and now it's come to pass!

And I'm pretty sure I know who did it too!

It's awesome! I love it!

hehee.

I love all these stories! I actually manifested a bunch of problems for myself. I have one friend who is male and I started to worry constantly that my husband would get jealous of him. No idea why! And guess what happened? :-P Figures! I need to keep my thoughts in check better. Well, it was a success, just not one I was looking for! Oh, and it's all better now!
post #146 of 321
This morning I was reading some posts from an Abe-Hicks Yahoo group about the latest cruise those fine folks are on. I started thinking about the cruise my husband and I took a few years back (pre-kids) and remembering how much fun it was, how well we slept at night, and how much I was looking forward to the next opportunity to cruise the Caribbean. I put it out there that I really want to go on a cruise again! Fast forward an hour and my telephone rings... it's a recording telling me I'm the lucky winner of a Caribbean cruise, and to press '9' for more details. I didn't press 9 as I'm not interested in these 'get the cruise for free if you come to our weekend seminar' type deals, but I totally get the message that the universe is sending! My cruise is ready for me whenever I want to go take it! Just perfect!

(Posted on the main secret thread as well.)

Koalamama, that is so cool! This is what I have found though and I posted about my successes in finding houses earlier in the thread - and that is that I as I see the universe working in my favour and answering my requests, that I then need to start getting more specific otherwise you do end up with things that aren't quite right. But very cool nonetheless.

I did some fine manifesting, yesterday, and it involved running out of gas!
I was low on gas, and stopped to fill up but the self-serve pump wouldn't accept my card, and ds was asleep in the back of the car, and the empty light hadn't come on, so I decided to just head home, and if the light came on, I'd stop and try again. Well, there I am, cruising down the highway, and the car starts to sputter (still no light) and just as I come up to a very busy interchange. So I get off at a conveniently placed exit which I have never taken before, and go slowly along the ramp with my emergency flashers on. It's past sunset in New England winter, and ds is still asleep, and by the way, I have no cellphone. But I don't panic, I keep thinking as positive as I can, this will work out somehow, I'm so glad I have AAA, etc. I get the car started again at the end of the ramp, pick a direction, and soon see a sign for a train station, and turn onto it. The car dies, but the road is a long downhill to said station, and I coast down it, then across the tracks to a safe spot right across the street from the staion. The payphone works, AAA arrives in 1/2 hour, and they bring me free gas! And ds sleeps through the entire thing!

The AAA guy was very friendly and when I said, very briefly, what I'd done, he said "Been there, done that. In that!" and points at his big flatbed towtruck!

So I've learned that my out of gas light no longer works (useful) and that I can stay calm and manifest in an emergency, even while feeling an adreneline rush. I think the trick was to focus on dealing with it, and never get caught up in all the things I should have done to prevent being there in the first place. There was a time when I would've been mentally beating myself up about that... but instead I got to see that I really am getting good at the LoA stuff!

WOW!!

These stories are so inspiring!

Awesome! It's all about feeling good!
post #151 of 321
I am very good at making money come when I need it. I used to not be as good, but now I am basically a pro. I have manifested buying a house for myself in a very high priced market ( I always thought I could never do it ). And this is going to sound very very silly, but just to make sure it wasn't a fluke (I never did think it was really, I just wanted to see how far I could take it) I manifested a light burning out at work. These are Philips halogen lights that are supposed to last for years and basically NEVER burn out. It was one of those ones that has two bars. I burnt them both out.

So now that everyone thinks I'm crazy.....
post #152 of 321
I just wanted to share 2 of my recent successes. First of all, I've mentioned a few times on different threads my family's desire to own a small farm and live a much simpler life. I dream of my future home/farm every single day. Its not about the material aspect to me, its about the way my family would LIVE. I have such a beautiful vision in my head of it, and I think my DH is dreaming of almost the exact same place. Unfortunately, we knew that we couldn't sell our home until 2009 at the earliest because of tax reasons (long story). A few mamas on here suggested that I could make it happen sooner if I wanted. I put out there to the universe that I wanted to move sooner, preferably next year and that in the upcoming year we'd finish remodeling our current home and learning everything we want to know about our future self sufficient lifestyle. My DH thought it was a little kooky when I told him that I was going to put out the universe that I wanted us to be living on our farm in the near future. On a whim I called our tax advisor and found out we are able to put our house on the market in January of next year! That is the perfect amount of time! Many people keep telling me we might have a hard time finding that type of place to live, but I have complete faith that when we are ready, my future home will be ready.

When I first told my DH many years ago that I had always wanted my own little farm, he thought it was crazy. He and I had many difficulties in our relationship after our first child was born, because she has been very high needs. I started really focusing my energy on creating in my mind what I wanted my future to look like and then suddenly my DH was on board. He's more into certain aspects of it than I am now! Its been an incredibly bonding experience for us and we've discovered new things in common which have renewed our relationship.

My second recent success: I was a tiny bit concerned about where we would get the money to finish some of our remodeling projects so we can sell our home, especially since we were still waiting to get our homebirth bill. I very gently in my mind have been telling myself that the money would just turn up. I got a letter from my midwife in the mail 2 days ago saying that she was writing off whatever my insurance isn't paying! We had been expecting about $2000 worth of bills from the birth, so that money is freed up now Also, we will be getting a nice tax refund too. The money we needed just seemed to show up right on time.

I am simply amazed by the changes in my life since finding out about the LOA. There have been so many little things that have happened, that I can't list them all. It just makes so much sense to me, it is exactly how I always imagined things could work. I am so grateful. I am so ready for these changes in my life. I am so happy to have changed my way of thinking and met others who think the same way. Those new like minded friends just seem to show up when I need them

Thank you so much to the mamas from MDC that told me about the Secret.

Hugs,
Rebecca

Thanks, Rebecca, for your stories! I especially loved this part because I am having a hard time imagining living how I want with DH doing his current career, which he mostly enjoys.... but he also enjoys other things.... Thanks for the reminder that it's my job to focus on what I want and the universe will provide the harmony between us.... I need to hear that often!

Yesterday I got some of the "unexpected money" I've been expecting! My MIL sent me a $50 check because she hadn't yet been able to get a combined gift that she wanted for ds and me, decided to buy me a sweater because I always admire hers, and couldn't find one she liked so sent the money instead! Then I found $7 in the pocket of a sweatshirt that I hadn't worn for a while.

THEN dh, who is beginning to be a little less resistant, chimed in, "Well, I did sort of get $19 today." He had had an account with a local foodstore which had been deactivated (much to his annoyance), and it suddenly worked again - plus he had various accumulated points for free food!

I've also had mail offering me refinancing on a mortage, and cheap rates on two magazines - none of which I actually want or need, but still, it's money, and I wasn't getting these before!

My DVD of The Secret is on its way, and now my Mom's reading the book!

BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ!!!

I really get a kick out of reading all these posts! You are doing so well at this manifesting game.

I had another cool experience a couple of weeks ago.

When I was preg with my youngest son, my fingers swelled up and I had to remove my rings. I'd worn those rings non stop for like 16 years. Anyway, I had to take them off at the end of my pregnancy and I put them on a shelf in my bedroom. After the huge ordeal we went through with our ds birth I went to put my rings back on and could only find 2 of the 3 I had put up on the shelf. I was so upset that one of them was lost. I took the house apart more than once trying to find it to no avail.

As I posted earlier, we made a trip to see my family for the holidays. When I got home, I had 2 huge suitcases to unpack and a ton of laundry to wash. As I cleaned out my suitcase, I found my ring!! The exact same ring I'd lost 3 1/2 years ago!! No idea how it ended up in the suitcase. I had been thinking about that ring because during my trip my sister had asked me why I didn't wear my rings any more and I explained how I'd lost the one ring. I remember sending some really potent "I wish I could find that ring!" vibes during that conversation

Now I have my long lost ring back and I am amazed, again!!

I keep marveling at how many times I've used that suitcase in the last 3.5 years. That suitcase has traveled many many miles in that time. Wow, I just can't get over it!

Wonderful!

I was recently talking to a friend about hoe she uses her reward points for her credit card. I remarked to her that we didn't have reward points on ours, and I sort of wondered why to myself and made a mental note to look into it.

The next day, DH (not being privy to that conversation) emailed me talking about what we could get with our reward points on our credit card. Apparently we DO have reward points (I just never knew) and we had accumulated enough to get a $60 credit on our card!

I also keep finding pennies, including in my own driveway - a reminder from the Universe of abundance!

So, I've got a huge long post for you. I apologize ahead of time for the length, but... this is just so incredibly awesome, and so "impossible" that I really have to share it.

I was standing in front of a zen-like temple, afraid to go inside. Compelled, I went in, anyway. Inside sat a monk, who offered me a seat on the mat across from him. I sat down, and he indicated two glasses of water that sat between us. Because I was desperately thirsty, I was very grateful.

But there was a problem. Inside the clear, sparkling, truly clean water, was a minnow. In the other glass, the water looked pure, but I knew it to be contaminated. Yet, because one held a living creature, and the other did not, I took the glass of contaminated water. The monk nodded. I had made the right choice. He showed me the way out of the temple, and said two sentences to me.

"Do no harm."

We walked up to the door. I reached for it to open it. He stopped me. "You will know when the time is right."

Then I woke up. Two weeks later, I found out I was pregnant. I will skip the whole story of that, though it is a miracle in and of itself. Suffice it to say, I knew that I was pregnant because I had made the right choice in my dream.

Now, before I found out I was pregnant, I tried to go vegetarian. But I have soy, wheat, and dairy intolerance... can you imagine a vegetarian without soy or wheat? : Well, I had another dream, in which I was given to understand that I was NOT to go vegetarian while pregnant. Probably due to the fact that when you detox while pregnant, it crosses the placenta.

Well. Now is the right time. But I'm not going vegetarian, I'm going raw foodist. It just feels incredibly, amazingly RIGHT to me.

But I kept procrastinating for one reason. The dehydrator, food processor, and the book I wanted added up to $300. Well, I didn't want to spend that much.

I spent it, and toda I spent nearly $200 buying food to begin my raw food diet. I have decided that I will not keep waiting, NOW is the time, and so I will do it NOW. I have spent the money in perfect faith that I will still be able to easily afford my mortgage and credit card bills, car payment, etc.

I cannot ignore the overwhelming feeling that this is RIGHT. My daughter has been reacting badly to the dairy and wheat I eat despite my intolerance. I have been exhausted and not even wanting to get up in the mornings.

No more, by god! The time is now, and I feel it in the depths of my being.

So I spent the money in complete trust that, while I can't see more than the distance of headlights in front of myself, when I need that money, it will be there.

It's like magic...

Thank you! I needed that!

BTW, I had acupuncture before I got pg, and when I was lying on the table zoned out I had very prescient visions/waking dreams somewhat like the dreams you describe. Pot-bellied stoves leaking water, fish swimming up divided channels, Native (South) Americans giving me arrows (= male sex symbol - I have my ds), etc. etc.

Two things happened to me today that I wanted to share.

I went to the farmer's market for pineapple and a couple other things. I had actually told DS twice the day before that we would be going and in my head I knew I wanted pineapple. So we went and they were out of pineapple. I wandered over to the herb kiosk and started to sniff some herbs. One really smelled good to me and I asked the lady what it was.....Pineapple Sage! I bought it and she said it attracts hummingbirds so now we are talking about all the hummingbirds we'll see this summer.

Secondly I've been talking with a friend online about making myself a necklace or bracelet. She made one that is super pretty and has lots of meaning. She gave me a list of the gem stones she used that was a little longer than I wanted to use for mine. So I decided on rose quartz, smoky quartz, and clear quatrz for mine. I went to a website and priced them and decided I'd go to the craft store this week to see what they had there. So I went to teach my night sunday school class tonight and a regular student (6 year old) came up to me and gave me a piece of polished rose quartz. All she said was that she got it for me at the museum today. I couldn't believe it. These kids never bring me stuff so this was very unusual.

Sooooo cool!
