I intentionally used “The Secret” or the Law Of Attraction to get my Oceanview condo in the Fall of 2013. I thought I would reflect on the steps I took to manifest the gorgeous view you see above.
In 2013 I lived in a home offshore. I was starting to feel uncomfortable living there. I noticed my mood changed when I came home, I avoided my roommate instead of engaging her. I knew it was time to leave but I just couldn’t pull the trigger and let go.
In the October of 2013, I was furloughed from my job for 17 days. The weather in the first week of October that year was absolutely gorgeous. It was beach weather. I am a beach walker. back then, I usually went to the beach in Ocean City. For some reason that week I decided to walk on the beach in the Ventnor/Atlantic City area. As I was walking past the high-rises I thought to myself. I want to live in a condo on the beach! That was the exact moment the magic in my head started happening🙏👏
I immediately went home and pulled a copy of “The Secret” out. I needed to know how to frame the request. That’s when I remembered these tips:
- Be clear with your request. The Universe doesn’t like wishy washy
Express gratitude. The Universe responds to people who are grateful.
Say it as if you already have it. It’s yours. Feel it.
Use feeling & emotion to convey excitement. Anticipation attracts good energy.
Do not worry about the how, who, when or where, you will block the flow
Be in the moment & stay aware. You will need to see the signs.
When you get intuitions, take prudent action WITHOUT delay. Yes, action may be required.
Have fun now. Don’t stress about it.
Do whatever you can to be happy now. Monitor your feelings. Focus on feeling good now.
Relax and let the magic happen. Don’t worry about the how, who, what, where or when.
Make the request, Believe it’s yours, Allow yourself to Receive
With all of the above tips in mind, I formalized this simple request:
I AM so happy and grateful now that I live in a condo on the beach🙏
I repeated this request as if it was a mantra. I wrote it, I recited, I owned it
Ready, this is when it started to get fun…
Late in October 2013 I mentioned to a friend who was a Realtor that I may be looking to rent an apartment temporarily until I figured out what I wanted to do. I asked him if he knew of anything available. He said he didn’t have anything but suggested I check out Craig’s List. He said many of his colleagues posted listings there.
I looked at Craig’s List and saw a high-rise that was on the beach in the Margate/Ventnor/Atlantic City area. They had one and two bedrooms for rent. I thought to myself…I AM going to live there😂 I had no idea why I thought that. (Intuition – the nudge from the Universe) I called the Realtor immediately and made an appointment to go look at the units available.(Prudent Action WITHOUT delay)
The Realtor showed me a few of the modestly priced condos available for rent. I wasn’t in love but I liked them. Then the magic happened. The realtor said, “Hey, I got a place upstairs. It’s a little out of your price range but for some reason I think you need to see it.” (Universe at work). We got off the elevator on the 7th floor. 7 is and has always been my lucky number. My father’s birthday is 7/7. (Dad was with him🙏) I felt good already. We walked down hall. She opened the door to condo number 723. 723 is my parent’s anniversary. My Mother and I have both hit the lottery using the number. (The Divine was looking out for me).The realtor opened the door to a full ocean view at sunset on a gorgeous night on November 5, 2013. I could hardly stop my heart from pounding. I knew it was mine. (Believe it’s yours).
The only problem was the monthly price was about $250 more a month than I was willing to pay. I told the Realtor I needed time to think it over. I truly believed if it was mine, it would still be there waiting for me. I just couldn’t reconcile myself with the additional $250. Thanksgiving break came and went. The Realtor was out of town on vacation. I finally got in touch with her on December 5th. I asked her if it was still available. She said YES. I asked if the Landlord would take $250 less a month or was she firm. The realtor told me she wasn’t sure but suggested I make her an offer that I was comfortable with. So, I offered the Landlord $250 less a month than the condo was listed for. (Gave it a shot)
The Realtor called me back a few days later and said, “So, the Landlord is inclined to accept your offer but she would like you to also pay half the parking fee each month which is $30 per month!”😂 I said, “Wait, that’s it? She is taking a $220 less per month?” 😂 The Realtor said, “Yes, she has a good feeling about you!” 😂😂 (I received what I asked for).
By the time we buttoned up the paperwork, I signed the lease on December 17, 2013 and moved on January 16, 2014. I’ve been here for three years🙏👍 By the way, the picture of the high-rise I saw on Craig’s List, is the building I now live in❤️
That is how the magic happens and how “The Secret” works 😂
If you would like to apply these these principle to your life, I would suggest doing as “The Secret” says, start all of your requests as:
I AM so happy and grateful now that…
For example, if you want to sell your house quickly, your request could be…
I AM so happy and grateful now that my house sold quickly above market price
Lastly, what I was forgetting in the last year is…Sometimes you have to let go of something good for you to be open to receive something better for you.
Now, go out and have fun manifesting great stuff…
