I want to give everyone some background on where the initial journey began. It was about 10 years ago. I was given the audio of a book called The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. This book was the start for me as I had never known that such a thing existed. The Law of Attraction, what is that all about? I was slightly confused and just a little bit in aww. Then I wanted to see what this physic thing was all about. Was it something that I could really believe? Did it have anything to do with the Secret? Was there something to any of this? I had been told about this amazing person who really could tell me things about myself. Her name was Morrighan Lynne. (Boy, was that ever a life changing reading. More on that in a later post.) She told me about the Law of Attraction as told to Esther and Jerry Hicks by Abraham. THIS BOOK CHANGED MY LIFE!! I began to believe that I really do attract the things into my life and only I can change what those things are. If I was looking for bad drivers, then they will come in droves to me. If I was looking for disapproval and misunderstandings, then that is what I would find. My thought patterns began to change. Now, I am not going to lie. This was a hard concept for me to understand. I had a lifetime of telling myself how unbelievable I was. That I was a shameful person, that I was not good enough for anything important, ever. Then suddenly, I started to change my words. ON PURPOSE. When driving on the crowded roads and people were being horrible drivers, I noticed that I was really paying attention to them. Let me tell you when I realized that I was paying more attention to them than all the good things around me I was shocked!! So, I changed my thoughts. Now I was saying, “Wow, that person must really need in front of me. I bet they are late while trying to get their very sick children to the doctor. ” Or I would make up some story to explain their horrible driving. Guess what happened? All those horrible drivers literally disappeared!!! This was my first AHH Hah!! And I began this incredible journey into thought and actions.
Now, this was not a fast process. For years my motto was Just Believe! I said this every day, multiple times. I had signs that said believe. I had car things that said believe, I wrote it on my bathroom mirror. I used it for just about everything that I needed a word for. IT WAS MY MOTTO. Problem with a motto…you truly must believe that it can happen. And me in my state of disbelief about myself and everything around me, I was saying the word and doing the very best I could with very limited information. But, The Law of Attraction got me started. It was my pointer to the direction that I knew I needed to go in my life. For about 6 years, The Law of Attraction became my beacon.
It’s funny how people come into my life. One day I was in a Christian book store and they had a rear window hanger. It was a teardrop with an angel in the middle. On the outside of the tear drop were the words, “Miracles Happen Just Believe.” This became my next motto. I bought this and put it in my car. Little did I know that one of the next people I would meet would give me another huge nudge to move in a more positive direction. And she would say those words to me and I would start a big metamorphosis. One that has been filled with lots of counseling, tears, journaling, loss and total acceptance.
