How they have affected my life
The Law of Attraction has been a major part of my entire life, never having a phrase to attach it, to until the release of the movie The Secret in 2008.
I was a child born with a high sensitivity level and from the beginning I was empathetic to the feeling of others. My thoughts were filled with how sad others were around me, and if only they could see the positive in life, like I did, they too could be so much happier. My mother suffered from severe back pain due to broken vertebrae that went undiagnosed for 30 years. I would gently lay my hands on her back, and that would give her immediate relief from the worst of the pain. She referred to my touch as that of an Angel. Was it? No, it was just my opening up to the feelings that flowed through me, and that was the feeling of love. I was utilizing the Law of Attraction.
I remember telling my Mom that when I grew up and wanted to have a large family of six boys. At that time I had no experience with boys and had one older sister. Somehow, though, I wanted to have a larger family to love, and sisters were just plain annoying. Years went by, and I put the thought out of my conscious mind.
My first marriage was to a man that had two children, one boy and one girl. I was a Step Mother of two. Five years later we started a family of our own, and I gave birth to my daughter and four years later to my son. Then there were four. Our marriage ended after 14 years, with deep gratitude for the family we had created together, but knowing that although I loved my first husband, he was not my soul mate. Our basic ideals in life differed much, and I often had found myself wishing that my love could change him into a more gentle, caring human being, that believed the good in everyone, I realized that although we may be manifesting something beautiful and amazing, we cannot control how others respond, it is their decision.
I was taking an energy healing course called “A Return to Consciousness “ also known as ARC, http://www.thearcinstitute.com with the amazing creator of this modality, Pietro Abela and his wife Melanie. I met a group of like minded individuals and we became a family over the next two years. I consciously began to learn to love myself, and to envision the life that I desired, and the type of mate that I wanted to share my future with. I began to journalize, writing in detail all the qualities that I admired. It was four months later that I met my soul mate, and future husband Rod. Over the years of the course, I came to know him and value his kindness, his spirituality, and his belief in looking at the positive in all of mankind. We married in 2004, and he brought into our life his two adult children. Then there were six.
Rod and I spent a number of years moving around, always searching for peace, nature, eagles, cedar trees, arbutus trees, the sounds of the ocean and railway tracks (don’t ask me, Rod loves the sound of trains). We became serious about it in October 2013, and began envisioning our specific desires. We each created aVision board with pictures and phrases that reminded us what we desired, and had faith that the Universe would provide. Our biggest affirmation was Dream!
Our daughter read on an equestrian Facebook page, that there was a house for rent and the rental rate would be reduced if we were willing to help out around the stable. My son and I immediately phoned and made an appointment to view the property. It had everything that we had manifested! In December 2013 we moved in to our new home, and we wake up every morning with joy and gratitude.
Did I have six sons? No, I have three sons and three daughters. The Universe ALWAYS knows best.
