How I Used The Law Of Attraction To Get My Oceanview Condo

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…

Gratitudes, Requests And Affirmations

I saw the movie “The Secret” for the first time in 2007 when it was first released. It was my first encounter with the Law Of Attraction and it blew my mind. I couldn’t believe I could manifest things with my thoughts.

Over the years I’ve used “The Secret” to land a secure job, a condo with an oceanview, a new healthier body and a better relationship with myself. I also believe practicing the Law Of Attraction raised my vibrational frequency and brought other good things to my life such as a few good close trusted friends, a man who is very good for me and the improved ability to manage the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder I’ve had since I was seven when my Father died suddenly. I use “The Secret” to manage the PTSD flashbacks periods until they recess to the back part of my mind. That’s why I downloaded “The Secret” book by Rhonda Byrne on Audible today and listened to it as I drove. I finished up when I got home. It was very helpful.

Since I feel like its time for me do a tech refresh on my brain and thougts, I plan to listen to my book on Audible a few times this week and use it as my homework or my textbook. I also downloaded some Affirmations and started following accounts on Instagram aligned with the power of thought. Retraining the brain isn’t easy but it’s necessary for me to do this again and do it like a boss with self assurance and self confidence. No doubts about my future are allowed.

One of the principles that is most important is to get very clear about what you want. If you are wishy washy or keep changing your mind, the Universe doesn’t know what you want. It’s also important to frame your requests as if you already recieved them and – most importantly – do not get caught up in the “how”. That’s where I was screwing up. I was trying too hard. I tried to control the “how” my life should manifest in the past instead of allowing the Universe to bring me what I wanted.

After spending all day listening and clarifying my desires, I finally got them into words. I am sharing them here to demonstrate my committment to a forward plan of thought. These are some of my official requests of the Universe – Order up!

GRATITUDES AND REQUESTS

I AM so happy and grateful now that I am using my talents and skills to the best of my abilities in all areas of my life

I AM so happy and grateful now that I am doing challenging and rewarding work that I am passionate about

I AM so happy and grateful now that I am at my perfect weight, in perfect health and feel great

I AM so happy and grateful to be in a loving committed passionate relationship with a man willing to grow with me and who loves me unconditionally

I AM so happy and grateful for my well paying, rewarding and challenging career which provides me with continuous opportunities for growth

I AM so happy and grateful to meet like-minded friends and collegues

I AM so happy and grateful money comes to me easily and effortlessly.

I AM so happy and grateful to spend my 50th birthday in Sedona, AZ with a friend from high school.

I AM so happy and grateful to be of service to my family, friends and my community.

I AM so happy and grateful to be open, aware and conscious in my life, the world around me and my spirituality.

There are more to come but I’ll let the Universe start with these requests as I see them as most integral to my growth and overall happiness at this time of my life.

By the way, I love the Audible for iPhone App👍

Have you thought about what you want the Universe to bring you? Do you use Affirmations? Have you tried to manifest anything with the Law Of Attraction?

Life Is Best When Lived Passionately


Life Intentions Declared As Of January 2, 2013

namaste1I’ve never been one to make New Year’s Resolutions. They seem cliché to me. But, I do believe in setting Intentions for one’s life. I believe in goals. I am a planner by nature. I believe if you set a goal and make a plan, you can do whatever you set your mind to.

After reflecting back on the last few years of my life, I see some opportunities for growth and continued improvement. Below is a rough list of Intentions or goals that I am setting for my life. This list is not all-inclusive. There are a few things that are far too personal and I have chosen to not share them on my blog. This list is long-term and is a multi-year approach to my life. Basically, this list is a rough list of Intentions for my life and I will use it as a jumpstart to get me moving in the right direction 2013.

Physical Health

I will continue to focus on improving my health in all aspects so I can live a full active life. I will continue to make choices that promote health and wellness in my life. This includes continued commitment to fitness with regular exercise five to seven days per week. While I am now an average weight for my height, I would like to lose an extra 5 to 10 pounds. Since I came this far and lost 80lbs I may as well lose another 5 to 10lbs and get back to my college weight:-)

I will remain committed to being alcohol free. I know if I drink alcohol I will become sick again. I won’t let that happen.

I welcome physical health into my life in 2013.

Emotional and Mental Health

I will continue to make strong healthy choices for myself that focus on taking care of my emotional and mental health. I will make sure to look for ways to better manage stress and anxiety. I will continue speak my peace. I will not internalize. I will not bottle everything up inside. I will allow people to help me. I will allow those who love me to take care of me when I need support. I will seek help when I need it. I will say what I need to say.

I welcome emotional and mental health into my life in 2013.

Financial Health

I will focus my energies on managing money better. It’s been difficult to manage money because of the large medical expenses I’ve had in the last two years. Even with decent insurance I’ve racked up some medical bills for multiple hospital visits. But, I am hoping 2013 will be a year of improvement in my health which will also mean an improvement in discretionary dollars to use for travel or savings.

I welcome wealth and abundance into my life in 2013.

Spiritual Health

It is vitally important to me to keep up my spiritual well-being. I am committed to nurturing my connection to source strength which only comes by practicing Yoga, Meditating, praying, practicing Reiki, offering compassion and empathy to others, by protecting my Karma and the Karma of others. I will live my Mantra of Peace,  Love and Happiness. I will remember that change starts with me. I will allow myself to feel unbridled optimism and passion for my life. I will have the courage to do the hard things in life for the right reasons. I will not give up or give in. I will allow the fire in my belly to burn brightly for all to see.

I welcome spirituality in my life in 2013.

Relationship Health
I plan to continue to surround myself with like-minded people and with people who are good influences for me. We don’t have to agree on everything. We don’t have to have all the same habits or make the same lifestyle choices. For example, I don’t drink Alcohol because I can’t. But, I don’t care if others do while we are out. I am out regularly with people who are drinking when I am not and it’s perfectly fine. But, we need to hold the same basic values.

I will continue to keep up and enforce my boundaries in all relationships.

I like to learn from people. Teach me something. Mold me, inspire me, encourage me and shape my world. Be someone I can respect and look up to. Make an impact on my life.

I will show my love and affection openly for those I love. I will make sure those I love know how I feel. I will continue to believe in LOVE.

I will continue to believe in people.

I will release the past so I can open both arms to welcome the here and now of my life.

I will not give up on LOVE.

I welcome LOVE in all forms into my life in 2013.

Now, here are some things I would like to work on or carry out in the future. There is no deadline on any of these. I just would like to do them sometime in the future whether that they happen this year or twenty years from now:-)  

  • I plan to do a Volunteer Vacation on Blackfeet Indian Reservation in the Glacier Mountains of Montana. Afterwards, I want to decompress for a few days with a Yoga Retreat at Big Sky Yoga Retreats in Bozeman, Montana and spend a few days in Glacier National Park. I always wanted to go to Montana and breathe in the fresh cold air and beautiful sky. I may have to do these two things in separate trips.  If possible, I would like to do the Yoga Retreat in the next year or two. Volunteer Vacation can wait until I have more free time.
  • plan to do a Yoga retreat in Bali.  This is my dream vacation. Yoga and relaxation in Bali. Anyone want to go to Bali with me?
  • I plan to continue to spend my birthday each year at Kripalu Center in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts. It’s a wonderful way to bring in my new birth year.  Anyone interested in a mini-vacation in mid-march?  Meet me at Kripalu:-)
  • I plan to go Zip Lining in Poconos.
  • I plan to go on a SPA Vacation at the Red Mountain Resort in Utah. This will be totally for R & R only. http://www.redmountainresort.com/
  • I plan to drive across the great USA one day. I am thinking I would take the Northern route to the West Coast and the Southern Route(Route 66) back East. 
  • I plan to go to the Kentucky Derby one day. I will wear a great, big, beautiful HAT that matches nothing! 
  • A lifelong friend of mine lives in Loughmacaory, Northern Ireland. She keeps inviting me to come for visit. I was planning to go last year until I go so sick. I would love to go. Maybe later this year or next year.
  • I plan to start working on a Memoir type of book. I’ve been told I have good story to tell and should write a book. With working full-time and being sick I really haven’t had the energy to devote to this project. But, I am hoping with the continued improvement in my health, I’ll have more energy. Otherwise, it will have to wait until I am 62 and retire from my full-time job.
  • I plan to attend a Writing Workshop. I have an idea for Fiction type of novel. But, again, I have no time to write it. And, I am having problems structuring it. The Writing Workshop would help get me centered and help me come up with plan.
  • I plan to write short stories and submit them for hard and soft copy publications.
  • I plan to enter writing contests, at least one per year, to continuously hone my craft.
  • Now that I’ve lost all the weight, it’s time to tighten things up. I plan to focus on muscle conditioning, toning and building to keep a thin strong body.
  • I plan to continue my Reiki training and obtain the level of Reiki Master.
  • I plan to include Tai Chi and Qi Gong into my life. I enjoy both.
  • I plan to nurture my intuitive “sensitive” abilities. While at times they scare me, I understand now I need to embrace it.
  • Finally, this list would not be complete unless I threw in, I plan on hitting the lottery, quitting work and doing everything I wrote above in the next year.  Yee hah!!!!

 

Well, this is just few things to start with to get me moving in the right direction. I am sure I missed something so I may edit this post and add on to it at times. But, this is a start.

Thanks for reading and joining me in my journey to find Peace, Love & Happiness. 

Namaste (the Divinity in me bows to the Divinity to you)!
