My first introduction to the law of attraction was through the movie The Secret. After watching it, I said to myself, “If this is real, show me by sending me a check in the mail.” It was just a matter-of-fact statement; there was no emotion attached to it and no other thought about it.

That’s right: I had overpaid our taxes.
Needless to say, I was blown away.
