The Law of Attraction is a powerful universal law that people use to create the life they desire. When I manifested my first house I had no I idea what it was
It was about 11 years ago and I was 24 years old.
I recently read the book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and wanted to get my first real estate deal.
For months, I would pick up those local real estate magazines when I went to the grocery store.
My plan was to buy one, live in it for a few years. Then I would rent it out and make monthly cash flow from the rent.
Fast forward a few months to February 3rd of 2008, I came home from work and my wife was laying in bed looking through one of the real estate magazines I had brought home a few days before.
I would bring them home just to browse them and try to understand the local housing market before I made a purchase.
She looked up at me with an excited face and says, “Mike, I found our house!”
She showed me the house…
The price was $65,000.
Now at the time, I had a very limited mentality and it reflected itself in my lifestyle. I had a sales job at a local wireless phone store and to me just the thought of $65,000 was breathtaking.
I thought to myself, “How could we ever afford to buy this house, That’s a ton of money”
At the time I was scared out of my mind but, being the stubborn and macho man that I can be, I didn’t want to show my wife.
For a few minutes, I was frozen in fear. Finally, I thought to myself, “what’s the worst that could happen?” I knew that if we couldn’t afford the house then the bank would tell us no and that we could back out of the deal if we couldn’t get the money.
Still a little nervous, I told my wife, “If we’re gonna do this then you have to be the one who calls the realtors. I know that you are good at starting things and if you get the ball rolling I can finish this”
So she called and we went to see the house about 2 hours later.
Going to see our first house
The house was small but everything was brand new inside.
Later we found out that the previous owner bought the house to flip it but lost the house because of the housing downturn during the mortgage meltdown. They ended up losing the house to the bank.
The previous owner had bought the house 18 months earlier for $119,000 so I could see that it was a good deal
What sold me on the house was the kitchen and the deck.
The kitchen had a beautiful tile job and all of the appliances look new and clean.
We went back to the Real Estate office and signed the paperwork to buy the house.
To be honest, I was still a bit nervous.
The first obstacle arises…
The next morning I woke up feeling inspired and excited about the potential of owning a home. On top of that, it was my birthday.
I went to work and about 2 hours later my manager came in and pulled me to the side. With a disappointed look on her face she said, “Hey, we’re gonna let you go”.
I was Shocked!
As you may already know, you MUST have a job in order to buy a house to live in. The bank won’t even think about giving you the money unless they are confident that you can make the payments.
I went home and waited to give my wife the bad news.
Law of Attraction 101: Believe
During the hours of time that I waited for her to get home, I had a thought…
Now, at the time, I was studying the Bible which as some of you know has various passages that hint at the law of attraction.
I had always struggled with faith and, to me, this was the perfect time for me to practice it.
So I thought to myself, “If I put my faith in God and that he will provide for me. I will get the house even if I don’t have a job. If I don’t get the house then I can go get a job fairly quickly (I was only working entry-level jobs at the time).
I had a few hundred bucks in the bank and thought that we could live on that until we find out what is going to happen.
When my wife finally got home I gave her the news about losing my job. I told her my plan to “Trust God” and use faith to buy the house. I’m sure that she wanted to fuss at me and tell me to go out and get a job. However, being that she was a pastor’s kid, on some level she felt obligated to let me try my faith (no matter how ridiculous I may have sounded).
The Test of faith
A few weeks later, the bank starts asking us to send them paperwork. They needed the documents to assess the house purchase decision. They told us that we would need to show $2,000 in the bank for closing.
I didn’t have $2,000…
After making some calls we found a friend that would let us borrow $2,000. As long as she could get it back immediately after the home closing she was fine with helping us.
I had faith that we could do it, even though I didn’t know where the money would come from. We agreed and she wrote us a check for $2,000
Fast forward to the day before the closing…
Everything seemed like it was going smoothly but I didn’t know how much money I would need to have the closing.
I called the bank officer and asked her, “Hey, how much money do we need to close tomorrow?”
Deep down, I was just grateful that everything looked like it was working out.
I was still hopeful I would be able to return the money to my friend like I promised.
She said, “Hang on, Let me check…”
I was on hold for what felt like 3 hours…
The loan officer sounded surprised when she said “ Hey, so you don’t need to worry about bringing any money to closing tomorrow. Actually, you going to get a check tomorrow”
I rushed off the phone with her and called my wife to tell her the good news.
I was in amazement of how powerful just acting out of faith could actually be.
My Cup Runneth Over
At the closing, after signing the documents we got a check for about $480. That was enough to get a moving truck and pay half of the rent for the apartment we were leaving.
The cool thing is that 3 years later we use that house as a rental. We ended up renting it out for about 5 years. I don’t own the house anymore but it was a great experience. Later, I realized this was my first experience using the law of attraction.
How to Make The Law Of Attraction Actually Work
Over the next few years, I struggled to use the law of attraction correctly again. It wasn’t until about 2 years ago I was able to really fully understand how it actually works.
