I just wanted to share this great email story from Minette:
“I am so excited by your invitation to tell you what I’ve attracted since coming to understand and practice the Law of Attraction.
Like you, I’m not the sort of person who has very many specific material wants…at least not anymore. There was a time, just over two years ago, when I was really struggling, doing the single Mom thing, trying to make ends meet, and living in a not-nice neighborhood, where my house was broken into 3 times. I was drowning in debt, specifically student loans.
Upon discovering the Law of Attraction, I began journaling in great detail about the life I would like to have. I described the house and the land that I pictured living in with my children. I actually began purchasing artwork that would look great in the house…my daughter asked me why I was buying art for a house we didn’t have? I tried to explain to her that decorating the house would bring it to us.
Furthermore, I stated that it was my intention to pay off my student loans by Christmas…I had NO way to do this, but I intended it just the same.
Well, Christmas came and went, and the loan persisted…but less than three months after Christmas, I found—in my mailbox with no letter attached—a bank check for $250,000. Just like that. A gift from a family member whose private business was booming.
I cried, right there in my driveway.
The very next day, I found the house. The perfect house on the perfect land, just like I’d described…and I found it not through a realtor, but on Craig’s List! A beautiful two story home on 2 acres of wooded land…for $67K. An absolute steal…my friends and family could not believe I found this house for that price…and also that I could pay for it in cash.
I began focusing on my relationships. I’d had a string of difficult relationships with men, and I began journaling about the type of relationship I wanted, that I thought I deserved. About a week after that journaling project, a friend mentioned having heard something about a former professor of mine, and it prompted me to reach out and get in touch with my professor…it was amazing. Twenty-five years had passed since I was his student, but when we met and walked in the park, it was like utterly recognizing a soulmate…for BOTH of us! We got married last month, and we are both just completely bewildered that this miracle has occurred…neither of us has ever been so fulfilled.
During my engagement, I began focusing on my career goals. I like the job I’ve had for the past seven years, but it isn’t a field I ever actually meant to be in, and I have a long commute to work each day with keeps me separated from my husband and children. I started just writing about the elements of work that I’d like to do—I want opportunities to travel and to speak, to meet interesting people and have a lasting impact on the world, with freedom for personal pursuits as well. One day, completely out of the blue, I got a phone call at lunch from a Surrogacy agency in Boston (I did a surrogate pregnancy 9 years ago, carrying twins for a gay couple, and had spoken on behalf of this agency a few times back then)…they offered me a full time job, making MORE money than I make now and, since their clients are all over the world…I can work from home. They’re already talking about taking me to France to speak this fall.
Like your story, these are just some of the larger, more tangible things that I’ve attracted. There are also countless points of personal experience, opportunity, spiritual growth, and rich relationships that would be difficult to put into words…but I know you understand!
Thank you for your story, James, and for the invitation to share mine.”
What a great story! Thank you Minette
