I feel like I know you all already! I spent the last week reading every page, every post, of Tracy's 'The Secret...anybody seen it' thread (hope I got the name of it right). And loving it all!!!
I was first introduced to the secret when Oprah's first show on it aired. I ordered the dvd while Oprah was still on, in fact. A lot of stuff had been happening in our lives, dh had just been laid off from his job, and I felt like I was reaching for something. Some new way
to be shown to us. I even told him, "I feel like there's something we're missing, we're not seeing right now. Like an answer that is there that I'm not yet aware of." But because of him being out of work, we were able to watch Oprah together. And wow.
I now get it, I totally and completely understand why he lost his job. I see how we both brought that to us. I think I felt we did not 'deserve' to have that much money (the job gave him the potential to earn more than he ever had, quite a bit more). He wasn't liking the job, and was convinced he could not succeed there.
Then in December things turned around. Actually, what happened was dh found an awesome paraliminal CD that helped him become incredibly good at his job overnight. Everything turned around. I was reluctant to hope, I admit it.
We had a lovely, peaceful Christmas and everything was really, really looking up. I felt relieved, DH was again confident in his work instead of gloomy and miserable all the time.
Then Jan 10 he lost his job. Well, it's certainly no surprise, right?
And he started a new job last month, making the same kind of money he was making ten years ago
. I felt, and even said, when he lost that other job, that I felt we were never going to make 'good money,' that we just weren't the kind of people who got to have enough, that all we would get was that little taste of it we were just beginning to experience.
But no more
! Now I have seen the light!
DH is also totally on board with the LoA, and we are focusing on being happy and feeling good.
I think I always thought that if I didn't prepare for the worst mentally, then I wouldn't be prepared when it showed up. I had no idea how I was perpetuating 'worst' in my life! I am so grateful to know there is another way, that I do have power over my own life!
I am reading Ask and it is Given, and Excuse Me...., and of course reading here. I have never ever in my years of (mostly lurking) here at MDC felt so much joy and happiness from a thread!
Thank you all you wonderful wise women! Thank you thank you thank you!!
Off to change my siggy now!
