My life was in shambles …
… I had dropped out of the college I had wanted to go to my entire life …
… I was scrambling from job to job to make ends meet …
… I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life.
Then I found it.
My friend recommend two things that changed my life: The Your Wish Is Your Command CD set and The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.
Both of these incredible tools taught me how to use the law of attraction.
The first time I used the law of attraction, I read about how a man manifested a front row parking space every time he thought about it. I sat down and thought about a front row parking spot at the Walmart I needed to visit …
… Then got in the car and believed in my front row spot, distracting my mind from any possible doubt …
… Got to Walmart, pulled in and looked for my spot …
… Drove past many good spots that were taken …
… And then I saw it! The perfect spot, in the front row, and right next to a cart return!
It may sound silly, but from that point forward I believed in the law of attraction. Since then, I have used these principles to manifest:
- My own business at the age of nineteen;
- A new car;
- Thousands of dollars in my bank account;
- And more.
I am 100 percent sold on the law of attraction, and I am dedicated to learning as much about it as I can for the rest of my life.
It’s spirituality for the rest of us.
Eckhart Tolle is awesome. So are Byron Katie and all those Buddhist monks we hear about. Why, then, doesn’t their advice immediately solve all our most pressing spiritual problems?
Why are their results so difficult to replicate?
