I LOVE the Secret and totally believe in the law of attraction. One of the main things I put on my treasure map was a pic of a baby nursing and then I wrote positive statements about bfing. --a little history, my baby was a preemie born at 27 weeks and weighed under 2 lbs at birth. She was in the NICU for 3 months and I had a really hard time bfing her. I exclusively pumped up until 6 weeks ago because I just could not get her to latch on.-- I was just about ready to give up on trying to nurse and pump but I thought I would make my treasure map and then give it one more shot. As I made the board I really thought alot about bfing and how much it meant to me and how much I wanted it to come true. I kid you not, the very next day after making my map my baby latched on and ever since then I have been able to exclusively nurse her. I could not be happier and this has made me believe in the power of the secret even more. Every time I nurse my baby girl I feel so blessed and so happy I stuck with it. I hope to nurse her at least until she is 2 and now thanks to the secret I might just be able to do that!!!!
I'm so happy for you!! THIS is what using LOA is all about. Making life better for you, for others -- it doesn't have to mean manifesting a million dollars. I just keep smiling thinking of you and your little one now able to share this joy. Give her a kiss on the head for me!
I just manifested a vacation We're a bit short on cash lately. My DH was actually suggesting that we NOT take a vacation this year. We haven't had one since Sept and that was only a few days. I work FT and REALLY needed to see the ocean. So I really just put it out there that I need to manifest a vacation. And in a few days, after checking with some friends for suggestions, etc., we are all BOOKED to go camping down south just off the beach at an amazing place with swimming pools, a playground, an ice cream parlor, a store and a lazy river!!! I am SO excited.
Also, DH saw a great tent he wanted to buy at the store. He checked the website and said that they weren't shipping it anymore. I sent him to the store and I just knew it was still there. Big surprise, he got the LAST ONE!!!
I love it!
this is one of those 'secret successes' that is not physical manifestation, but the manifestation of an emotional/spiritual aspect. i'm kinda psyched about it.
months ago, i decided to take responsibility for a certain behavior pattern. in this process, i became very conscious and conscientious about certain actions and reactions, certain behavior patterns. i was very diligent in my process, as well as looking for opportunities from the cosmos to help and enlighten me in the process.
one of the lessons i learned is that i don't have to take responsibility for other people's reactions. in the past, i tended to do this, and then would end up in a resentment pattern for the way that they treated me. so, my big lesson over the last couple of months has been about learning to set appropriate boundaries with certain types of behaviors from others.
with this, i knew that the process would recur in different ways but with decreasing levels of severity until i "got it." the first experience lasted a year, the second lasted 4 months, the third lasted 6 weeks, and this most recent one lasted--
*drum roll please*
a single conversation.
now, i consider that, a success.
it looks like i'm starting to 'get it.' i'd hoped to 'get it' a bit sooner, but honestly the last two were 'tests' after some of the things that i'd gotten. I've really gotten over the resentment part and recreating that, but i also now understand why others are behaving this way in response to me. i can recognize 'my part' and i can recognize 'their part' and i don't have to take responsibility for the whole.
now, the next step is to figure out how to tell people thati'm not responsible for their stuff in a graceful way.
we have been having a very hard time financially. We were miserable where we were living and needed to move but no way would anyone rent to us and NO WAY could we afford a new place. Noone would have given us a loan. We couldn't even come up with a security deposit!
I decided we were moving. I knew I needed to move. So I started house hunting. i went to open houses and looked in the areas I wanted to be in. I used a magical creation box ( a la LOA) and clipped things from magazines. My parents and husband all thought I was nuts. I jsut smiled and kept looking.
Then an amazing thing happened...my grandmother decided that she wanted to (for several reasons) buy a second home! She let us look, we found it and she bought it. We are paying her monthly and have the option to buy at any time and the $ we pay monthly is applied to the mortgage 100%. We moved in two weeks ago and LOVE IT. It has changed everything.
We went from no hope to an offer for a new house in under 2 months. IT was by far my biggest manifestation to date.
i have an interesting experience that my husband and i are working with.
we're both really into manifesting. we really go out of our way to manifest things, and it's very cool. we do a lot of what firefairy mentioned--looking at pictures, visiting open houses, etc. we do a lot of "dream building."
so, this past weekend, we were with our friends who are very negative (don't believe in LOA, etc). we're not used to THAT MUCH negativity. it was crazy!
during the whole time, when they would be negative, we would simply reassure each other of the reality (the positive). and on the way back, we got some good, clear mirrors about our own negativity (we often say "it might be arrogant to say this. ..." or "i know it's pompous. . ."--i realized this was heavy self judging), and then we manifested all sorts of cool things all weekend.
they were little things like--good parking, a nice dream-building walk in a great neighborhood, a good inexpensive lunch, bathrooms available whenever we needed them.
oh, and the special gift--a Chihuly exhibition (glass artist) at the local botanical gardens, where i wanted to go but didn't know they were having the exhibit and chihuly is one of my favs!
I'm working on this manifesting thing and I'm new to it so I love love love to read these confident stories! I have so many things I manifest and am working on the confidence to trust that they will happen!
Love this thread!
I just started this week (while reading Excuse Me Your Life is Waiting - still have to see the Secret). On Tuesday I manifested a delicious egg & cheese sandwich for lunch; Thursday I manifested a delicious dessert at the office and today I had lunch with my dh and ds (which I had been working on all week).
So I've started small, but after reading this thread, I'm going for the big time!
I manifested reaching my ideal body weight. I've lost 25lbs since January. I wanted it to be EASY. I surrendered the struggle about it. I just decided that it was easy and set about making changes in my diet. I started visualizing seeming myself at my ideal weight. I started picturing myself fitting into the clothes that I couldn't wear anymore.
And guess what, it has been really easy!! I still have 8 more lbs to go but I'll get there It's been a wonderful, concrete experience for me. I see the power and I am just now thinking about what I want to manifest next!
I also managed to manifest not one, not two, not three but FOUR traffic tickets. Yeah, you'd think I'd learn after the first or second time, but everytime I thought about it, there was a cop right behind me.

I just manifested something really big, huge! Can't tell you what it is right now but its huge!
|I'm trying to stay positive with this whole Secret/LOA thing but I must have some mental block because hardly anything works for me.|

I've been missing the old The Secret threads here- the monthly/weekly chats. Even though everybody is at Wise Ways of Women now, I'd still like a thread here at MDC- would anybody be interested if I did start one?

Lately I have manifested food, $1500 to pay my midwife, a free living arrangement, great job for dh and myself, an easy pregnancy (stopped my morning sickness), a 42" flat screen plasma tv, a way for my kiddos to start montessori preschool before I have the baby (aunt paying for first 2 months for both of them!!!) the list goes on! We are so blessed. My dh and I live the LOA everyday w/everything we do...positive thinking w/ a GRATEFUL attitude is the key for us! We also teach our kids. If they aren't feeling well we tell them to say things like "I am healthy, My immune system is strong, etc...". My dd kicked an ear infection in 12 hours!
My kids do this too! My ds was born for hte LoA-he is the most appreciative and grateful person I have ever met. He has NO resistance. He does his gratitudes every day. IT's adorable.
I'm interested in a thread! Just make sure you post a link. I get lost online
