How to Manifest Your Deepest Desires Even if Red is Your New Black. Or How the Law of Attraction REALLY Works.
Some years ago I was the single mother of two kids. I had just been through a rather nasty divorce and was having a hard time supporting myself. I was commuting a long distance to a job that I did not like and did not pay me nearly enough to stay afloat (what else is new...) and living at the end of my meagre $500 bank account overdraft every single week.
In other words... Red was my new Black.
On top of this I was given notice to move out of the small basement apartment that my friend had let me rent for awhile (because I was so poor and could not afford a proper apartment) and I had less than one month in which to do it.
So...I decided to give moving back to my kids' hometown a try in an effort to provide them with some post-divorce stability. The overwhelming challenge? Rent for an apartment that would comfortably house the three of us was completely out of my current financial reach. Add to this that I had absolutely no savings, was fully over-drafted, as usual, and I would have to put down one full month's rent deposit to hold a suitable place then pay the first month's rent again within a week or two and we're talking monumental task here.
A friend called me to say that an apartment had come available in my very favorite neighborhood. It was the entire second floor of a large, red brick, Victorian house, replete with huge windows, oak floors, two huge, glorious balconies and within walking distance to the centre of town, schools and the parks that my kids loved to play in.
My heart began to beat with excitement. Then I felt the terror. I would never be able to afford an apartment like that. Never. What kind of an idiot was I?
Feeling completely and utterly compelled I picked up the phone and made an appointment to view it the following day. I didn't even ask how much the rent was.
When I stepped through the door of the apartment something instantly came over me. I. fell in, ummm... LOVE. This was the apartment of my dreams. I knew to my bones that we HAD TO LIVE HERE.
There was no other outcome.
Having been shown the apartment by the current tenant I phoned the landlord directly when I got home.
"I will take the apartment" said I. "How much is the rent?"
"$895 per month." said she. "I need a deposit of $895 by Wednesday and first month's rent in two weeks on the first of the month."
I gulped. Really gulped. Gulped like I'd never gulped before. Holy cow... thought I. I don't have two nickels to rub together.
"I'll bring you a check on Wednesday."
I went to bed that night excited that I was getting my new apartment. I could think of nothing else. I was going to live in... That. Apartment.
All I had to do was deliver the check to her on Wednesday.
Check? What check...????
I am here to tell you that I pulled it of. I got that apartment of my dreams.
Yes I did.
I took her a check for $895 the following Wednesday. I had another check for $895 to her by the 30th of that month.
When one wants something, really really wants something, deeply desires to have something come into one's life, it will. Regardless of the prevailing circumstances. Regardless of whether the way to it is clear right at the outset or not.
And I'm not talking kinda sorta want something. Or thinking that having that something would be groovy or golly gee swell. I am talking deep desire here.
Now I am not saying that it will happen if you "deeply desire" then sit on your sofa and do nothing. Your actions must fall into alignment with your desire. You need to hustle and create to make it come about. If you don't it will not. Period.
In fact, your actions will have no choice but to come into alignment with your DEEP desire. That is how you will know that you really really really really want that something. It will be followed by action that brings it about.
I became obsessed. I hustled. I bustled. I looked at things differently. I found money where I never would have previously considered to look. I went without things I thought I'd needed. And believe me some of these things WERE essentials - I just learned to do things differently. Several new avenues to bump up cash on hand opened for me that I never dreamed possible. I saw only the opportunities rather then the limitations. I did it all on my own - no loans, no credit cards, no pay day advances, no money falling out of the sky (though in some ways that is what it felt like to me!).
I "manifested" $1790 where -$500 had been.
We moved in on the first of the month. Me, my two kids, one bed, a few dishes, pots and pans, one rickety kitchen table with no chairs and an old chintz floral couch.
Oh... and three great bigs smiles!
PS... we lived in and loved that apartment for 10 years. :)
