Hi Dr. E,
I am so happy to have read your book because what I now realize is that I have been manifesting things all my life. I even managed to manifest myself into debt which I am now trying to manifest myself out of! I had acquired a lot of credit debt last year which I was doing ok with because I had a job, but I kept thinking, what am I going to do if I lose my job and can’t pay my bills? I was very fearful of this happening, so you can guess what has happened. I thought myself right into the pickle I am in!
On a happier note, about eight years ago, I really desired to do some home remodeling. Our main bathroom was in dire need of gutting and replacing everything from the studs up. I saw a picture of a bathroom that I loved in a Home Depot circular one Sunday and I imagined the same fixtures, wainscotting, and blue tile in our bathroom. I was temping at the time and had not a clue how I was ever going to get that bathroom.I just knew I wanted it. In addition, there were other things I wanted to do in our house. I would always day dream about how it would look with these changes. Once again, I did not know how it was going to happen, I just knew I wanted it. Then one day I got a letter from … corporation stating that they were going to give out a large distribution to the share holders. Needless to say, I made all the changes I had my heart set on.
Another example of manifesting in my life: 11 years ago I was a single, divorced mother of three, working hard to support my family and alone without a partner. One Friday night, my girlfriend wanted me to go out with her to a bar, which I didn’t want to do but she insisted. As I was getting into the car I said to my friend, “You know, I have resigned myself to the fact that I going to be alone for the rest of my life and that I will never meet the right person for me, and certainly not at a bar! But I accept that and I can live with it.” Well, we are at the bar and she wants to stay longer than me. I was ready to go home and I needed a ride, so I asked someone I knew there if they knew anyone who could give me a ride. And he said, sure, my friend, … , here can give you a ride. He introduced me to … , and he was a handsome man and offerred to give me ride. When we got to my house, for some reason, I asked him to come in and told him that I normally don’t do that with strangers. We sat in my living room and talked into the wee hours of the morning. He was very nice. He asked me if I was divorced and I told him I had been for five years. I asked about him and he said he was separated. I asked him for how long and he said that his wife had just left him that afternoon! Well, the next day I told my girlfriend about him and that I would probably never see him again, but that Sunday night, there was a knock at my front door, and who do you think was there? He came back to see me and we have been together ever since. That was in December 1997.
