This is an excerpt from Derek’s ongoing law of attraction success story. Read more at lakemansion.wordpress.com.
Recently, I downloaded a couple clips off of YouTube to listen to on the plane ride to San Francisco. One of them was a guided meditation, aimed at attracting prosperity. The video itself is nearly two hours long and is, well, a little strange to listen to. The first half is basically the guide’s voice verbally saying positive affirmations regarding attracting money. There are a couple of exercises involved, but I didn’t really get too deep into doing them. After all, if I started to shout “I am money” on a crowded plane, I might get some odd looks. I fell asleep listening to the audio. I woke up towards the end. At that point, there was this weird synth-type music playing. Real New Age-type stuff.
Over the course of the week, I couldn’t get that song out of my head. It didn’t have any words. It was just noise, really. The YouTube commentors under the video all seemed to swear by this video. It had an unbelievable amount of positive feedback.
I got back to Boston late Saturday night. I had an interview lined up from the week before, but didn’t think too much of it, as I’ve had plenty of interviews before and none were willing to pay anything in the ballpark as to what I wanted. After all, I enjoy my current position. I just wanted to find something with a good company where I could bring home a pretty good amount more money. Well, this interview basically fell in my lap. It wasn’t something that I have gone seeking out at all. I wasn’t actively looking for new work. The recruiter called me and told me the CIO of this new company specifically asked to meet me. That has never happened to me before. He heard about me through some of my current colleagues. I suppose they gave him a pretty good review of me for him to insist on bringing me in.
Well, yesterday I met with this CIO. It’s a great company (a competitor to where I am right now). He handed me an offer letter yesterday, where I will make $15-20k/year more than I make now. Plus, I’ll be able to work from home two days a week and get an extra weeks vacation from what I get now. On top of that, I’m being given a manager position immediately (I’m not currently a manager now). Basically, he expects within a years time, I will be the IT Director of this company and have a whole team beneath me.
I find it pretty difficult to call this a coincidence. I’ve been in this field for years and nothing like this has EVER happened. Employers don’t generally seek out employees in the IT field. Especially ones that they have never even met. I look back to all of the comments under that video and can safely say that the same thing has happened to me. It’s amazing to see the things that start to happen when you keep your energy positive, and when you focus and believe in what you want.
Oh, and here’s a link to the video that I was talking about. (Be warned, it’s really strange.)
