Oh, what a wonderful story. Thank you! It really brings home that we don't have to focus on how the money will come. Who could have predicted a distant relative would give you a house? Truly beautiful. I love how you allowed wealth to come to you. I'm on that path myself and am really inspired by this story.

**Standing ovation**


Belana, many times we Abers encounter people needing "proof" that this LOA stuff works. And then "proof" of it arrives - as in being gifted a HOUSE :shock::shock::shock: - and many will say, "well, that was just a coincidence."

But the proof is in the pudding, as the old saying goes. Or in your case: the proof is ALL OVER THE PLACE!!!

Way to go, fellow co-creator!!!

On a side note, let me share two mind-numbing (to non-Abers) things that happened to me in just in the past few months. First, in November of last year I was recognized before my entire company's management in a gala event. Applause, prizes, accolades, you name it - I got it.


This was something unheard of in my company for someone holding my position. My project was adopted by the retail department and implemented throughout the company as mandatory. Can you believe that?! Of course I know you can, because you and I know the 'secret." Or let me rephrase that: the REAL Secret! LOL

Anywho, and in November I bought my first brand-new car. By myself. I was so proud of myself and so exhilarated I felt as if the world was my oyster. And guess what? I realized the world IS MY OYSTER!!

It's all of our oysters. A different colored oyster for each of us, containing different desires and aspirations. But we can do anything. Anytime. Period.

Good to see you on here again.

And thank you for inspiring troves of people with your high notes of vibration!

Love always,

::woohoowow!  How wonderful!

Thanks for telling us your amazing story.  I love your processes.

I got about eight dollars worth of free stuff yesterday!  I never thought of it as found "money".  What fun!

Wow guys, now I feel even more appreciated ::flowers, guess that's what happens when you start appreciating everything ::cool

The transformation indeed came in small steps, I think I joined the abe-cult ::devil in the spring of 2007, and looking back, that must have been the lowest point I have lived, (so Abe came along at the perfect time, when the rockets of desire were the strongest - more proof of the LOA).

Those were the days when our house was falling apart and I remember one time, when my mum asked my husband what would be the best thing for her to buy for my birthday, and my husband replied a pair of shoes would be best, because I was in desperate need of a pair (I only had one pair left and there were holes in the soles, so they wouldn't last for much longer).  And he literally told my mum that, and that night she didn't get a wink of sleep, later asked me if that was true, and I diminished it and said she probably misunderstood what he had said.  I told her I just hadn't found the time to go and buy some shoes, but I indeed had to go urgently now, because the part of the holes in the soles was true. 

I was a great actress when it came to hiding our poverty, so I actually was doing something the Abe-way all along :)

And now, I could buy a whole shop of shoes if I wanted to, and I know that most women on this forum would probably do that ::devil but I guess I'm not really a shoe-type woman, I only buy them because I have to put something on my feet, but I'd rather play the stock market, thank you ::devil

I've been reading up on the stock market over the last few weeks and have been daydreaming about what stock to buy, I'm like a girl in a toy shop now ::woohoo

You know, even the receiving of the house came in small steps.  And it's funny, last night when I was lying in bed I was thinking I should tell you guys about the "adventure" of the receiving of the house.  Because at first, when I was told I would get it, I was happy of course, but you just don't "get" a house by someone handing you the keys telling you it's yours, there's lots of legal steps to take (especially when it's actually an inherritance), so it takes a lot of time, and so I had lots of time to "think".  I did my best to refocus when I caught myself "thinking" ::devil 

And the whole experience was again proof for me of how the LOA works.  Part of me still must have been uncomfortable receiving so much money, because things kept going wrong, and each time the receiving of the big ::money was postponed, I started thinking why this was happening and what I had done wrong.  And now Jerry made me laugh this morning, because: 

lifeisgood wrote:
You said one time that you always felt the need to review what you had done "wrong". It looks as if you now have created a habit of or reviewing whats right!

::LOL People here know more about me than those who think they know me in real life. ::LOL Yes Jerry, you're right, but the habit isn't totally gone yet.  I really had to consciously stop myself from doing that and refocus on something nice. But hey, at least I'm able to catch myself when I go there now, so again an opportunity to congratulate myself and turn my boat around.

Yep, the whole thing was good excercise  ::cool

You know, appointments were resceguled, at one point even the weather became problematic and another time the guy who was gonna give me the house nearly died (boy, that was a fright).  For a moment there, I was wondering whether the universe would be so cruel as to hold the carrot of that house in front of my nose, only to eat it themselves :( ... but of course I know *I* was the one holding the carrot and keeping it at an arm's length.::chin

Do you see the ups and downs here ?  Totally proves I still wasn't all that ready to easily receive lots of money, doesn't it ?

But as time went by, and I was swept between making plans (not too many, because I was afraid to put a spell on it) and letting go as much as possible, between hope and fear, going up and down the scale with rocket-speed at times,... Boy, that was a ride !

But in the end the fairy tale got a happy end ::cool



P.S.: I still haven't learned to keep my posts shorter than a book, sorry about that, I'm doing the best I can here :?

I was just re-reading this entire thread and made some notes while doing so.  It's given me a lot of insight of how all of this was possible I think.  I'll share:

- Some of you refer to "being poor" and now I see I actually was poor, but that's the funniest thing, because I've never considered myself as being poor, we've always had a roof over our heads, and we've always had an income.  The money just went faster than it came, but still I've never felt poor.  So although the facts of poverty were there, the emotional feeling has always been one of trust in the future (that's insight nr 1: the feelings are more important than the facts)

- Previously, when I heard about stories like this one, or when I read them on this forum, I was happy for the person it happened to, but I now realize there was also always kind of a sting in my heart, I don't really know how to describe this exactly, I know I wasn't jeallous in the way that I wasn't able to grant that person their success, but there was this flash of a thought that went "this kind of thing will never happen to me" or "why doesn't this ever happen to me", thoughts like that.  I guess that because they went so fast and they were so "small", and you never really want to admit to yourself that you're that kind of person, you know ? The jeallous kind :?.  I guess what I'm trying to say is, than when I started to learn to really appreciate the small things, the touches of jeallousy left me :) and that must have made a big difference. (insight nr 2: feel genuinly happy for the person without bringing it back to yourself and feeling sorry for yourself)

- The appreciating on itself is a VERY large part of the allowance of your own success as I see it.  There's a thread on this forum about appreciating money and than receiving some totally out of the blue.  Several forum members have testified it has worked for them and why ? Because of the appreciation itself.
In the past, when someone gave me something (like the example of the grocery shop keeper giving us a package of toast), I thought nothing of it, just ate the toast and found it "normal" I would be given something like that, because they couldn't sell stuff like that anymore and coincidently I was just there at that exact time. But we all know coincidences don't really exist, right ? Now on the other hand, I started milking and exaggerating things like that and as a result it happens more and more.  There's a little "negative end of the stick" there, if you appreciate to get something out of it, it won't work, you really have to appreciate for the appreciating in itself, for the warm feeling you get from appreciating and nothing more. (insight nr 3: appreciate for the appreciating in itself, without a hidden agenda)

- When I would see a movie about someone inherriting from a far relative (usually it's someone they never knew existed in the movie, right ?), I would think that would never happen to me because there simply wasn't anybody I could inherrit that kind of money from.  But with me building my wealth consciousness little by little, the universe found another way to get the money to me.  I didn't believe I would inherrit it anywhere, so someone else who inherrited just donated their inherritance to me. Kind of crazy when you think about it, isn't it ? ::LOL (insight nr 4: the how really IS not our pie)

- In the "poor days" I felt like I had to keep the oversight to keep things under control, so I would always count everything together we had to pay that week, I did that over and over again, never realizing this behavior was keeping me where I was, feeling low self confidence (because of course the sum of the bills was always a big amount of which I always knew there was NO way we would be able to pay all of that in time, so most of the time I felt like a failure).  At one point, encouraged by Abe and other forum members' experiences, I gave up on that bad habbit, again step by step, not even bad habbits can be let loose in one go ::devil and even though I still counted everything together once in a while, most of the time I could get myself to look only at the first bill that was due and not look at the rest.  So I hardly ever saw the "large amount" anymore, so the amounts automatically were smaller, so they actually became smaller (and there were less of them) in time, and now, the bills are all paid in time, (I'm talking BEFORE the receiving of that house, with just our normal income) and the only time I feel my heartbeat and breath go up a notch, is when I see a bill that's extremely large (for things that need to be done around the house, that only have to be taken care of once every decade or so).  The normal, monthly bills are never added together anymore and they don't freak me out anymore either. (insight nr 5: adding dept together only makes it grow, NOT adding bills together actually makes them grow smaller)

I hope you guys get something from these insights too ::flowers

P.S.: I've been away from this forum for about half a year and ever since I wrote my first post a few days ago, I've been on a high and now I realize that boy, have I missed you guys... (I guess that's insight nr 6: turn to people who understand the LOA instead of only mixing with people who haven't got a clue - yet) ::devil



I see now I've just written another "book", again sorry guys :(

My name is Belana and I'm a write-a-book-o-holic ::LOL

This part resonates with me. Little miracles happen to me all the time but I dont stop and take notice as much as I should. And, I certainly have not been milking them. Taking notice of this cooperation of the universe in our lives, opens the door to more . I will stop, notice and appreciate them all!

Dear Belana,

Many, many thanks for the inpsiration!

Last week I set my intention to raise my abundance vibe, and almost immediately, began to naturally become more aware of my current abundance and the abundance that surrounds me.. and then your amazing thread arrives (LOA - just gotta love it!) reminding me that appreciation is the gift itself...  focusing on and valuing, appreciating, what we already have feels so good and allows more to come to us.

Here's to learning how to be our own co-operative component.

Belana, Your story is very inspiring. All you have to do is a small increment shifts everyday and before long you made a very big shift.

I remember reading about being money. Money is free, money come and go. Money move freely thru pockets, stores, bank , wires. Can move from LA to Australia in fraction of a second . I have to appreciate the freedom of money.

Reading your story Belena, one thing that stuck out for me was the notion that (inheriting) money could happen to someone else, but not yourself. And I think that is a theme that runs through many of our stories:

"This could happen to someone else, but not me."

Yesterday may son was playing an old Paul Simon CD with these song lyrics:

"When something goes wrong
I'm the first to admit it
I'm the first to admit it
And the last one to know

When something goes right
Well it's likely to lose me, mm
It's apt to confuse me
It's such an unusual sight
Oh, I can't, I can't get used to something so right
Something so right"

Now that theme may not be as prevalent since we have met Abe, but chances are most of us slip on this one from time to time.  It takes effort getting used to Something So Right happening to us. Most of us were not conditioned at an early age to think everything is going right for us.

Anyway, I have periods where I am very TITITO and I FEEL like Something So Right is happening or I expect it will. Now I am making the effort to get myself in that mind-frame more of the time.

Also, I agree with you that self-appreciation and feeling deserving are a big key to allowing our good in -- I have seen it in my own experiences.

WOOHOOO Belana!!! ::woohoo::woohoo

You are one of my favorite posters. I often do a search on your posts and read them all in succession, just to see the evolution.

This is just absolutely fantastic. I love your money processes, and I love how you congratulate yourself. That's awesome.

Please share more and more of your story. Thanks for stopping by today.

It really is good to "see" you.

Goooooooood morning everybody ::group

Again, I feel VEEEERRRRRYYYYY appreciated by all of you ::TU

I wanted to share something that I found very surprising.  As I've written before, it took a very long time before the money actually landed in my bank account.  Sometimes I was feeling hopeful, other times I was feeling very nervous, destressed even at times and I had expected I would feel absolutely great once the deal would be complete.  But to my GREAT surprise, I didn't feel quite that different than before.  Of course the nervousness and the stress and anxiety was gone, but I had expected to feel completely different with lots of money in the account and that didn't happen.

So again, proof that what Abe states really IS absolutely true, it's not the stuff itself that makes us feel different, otherwise I would have felt really different.  So don't we have to ask ourselves, why are we always chasing so much stuff ? When it's not the stuff that brings us the good feelings after all.

I don't know, maybe my post sounds like I'm not happy with the money, but that's not it.  I am very happy that this happened, and transferring half of it to my parents' account felt really, really good.  If I think about what they now will be able to do that they couldn't before, I feel even more happy.  And I'm sure that once I'll be paying large invoices to all the companies that come work on our house and I see the house turning into "my little castle" I'll feel even more happy, but bottom line remains, it's not the stuff, it's our thoughts about it all.

I think I'm really getting it now (before I only thought I did).  And I understand why we have to feel it first before it can actually happen.  What happens (the stuff that comes) is just the match to the feeling we've been having all along, and that's just why it doesn't feel differently to suddenly have all that money in your account.  The feeling was already there, I just didn't take notice of it.

Hope my rambling makes any sense ::chin
