MKMMA Week 12 – R2A2: It doesn’t Matter Whether or Not You Believe …

… In the Law of Attraction; it believes in you.

For the past couple of months I’ve been closely involved in a good friend’s quest for a new home. She learned that the house she is currently renting was going to be sold at some point in a few months, and would eventually need to find someplace new to live.

While the sale of the current house is not imminent (due to a variety of factors regarding this particular property), she immediately went into frantic “gotta find a house” mode.

At this point I should mention that we’ve had – or at least have begun – conversations about the underlying concepts we’re all learning and hoping to master here in our Master Key Master Mind Alliance program.

Her response: “Oh, you believe in all that foo-foo attraction stuff…”

Yeah. Okay. So …

She put into her head that she had to find a house. Took action – found a mortgage broker, got pre-approved, found a realtor, began looking at what was available.

Trouble was, everything she saw that fit her ideas was about 30-40 percent higher than what she could afford. And everything in her price range was either too small, already under contract, or both.

Her reaction – her “affirmation” – “I don’t think I’m going to find the house I want, everything I can afford is too small.” Hmm, the wording could use a little work there.

BUT, she kept looking. Not with conscious “intention” because, remember, she doesn’t believe in all that stuff, but nonetheless, with a driving, focused desire that she wanted to find a house that met her needs and wants, in her price range.

At this point somewhat dejected she kept looking, and went to see one more house she’d heard of.

Came back and said “I think I just looked at the house I’m going to buy. It’s a little small, but I’m not going to find anything better in my price.” It was still $20K higher than her top-end approval.

She went to look at it a second time, and brought me along.

“Hmm, this is actually larger than the way you described it, and you can do this, and this, and it’s in a great location. It’s actually a pretty nice house.” But of course there’s that price thing. I’d gone with her before to look at others that were well over her limit, and of course they came to naught.

Now she was dead-on focused. She WANTED this house. It was an all-consuming desire. (It almost sounds like it had become a DMP, but of course, she doesn’t believe in all that stuff.)

This one was a FSBO, so the owners were there when we looked at it. We all talked as much as we did looked at the house, and the four of us seemed to hit it off, to create a good energy, a good connection.

So at her realtor’s suggestion she put in an offer about $7K under her limit, about $27K under the asking price. He reasoned it’s a FSBO not in the MRIS so nobody knows about it. It’s actually well under what other houses in the area are valued at, so it’s a good price.

There was one other person looking later that day, otherwise, no offers on it yet.

She put her offer in Monday; Tuesday she heard back: the other person had put an offer in also, just $10K under the asking price.

Hmm. She countered with an offer at her max – still $10K under the other offer. “I’m a little sad, I don’t think I’m going to get the house.”

The realtor was describing to me the conversation at the counter offer presentation. He had begun trying to work on the price issue, but every time the husband pointed out that the other offer was so much higher, the wife replied “but she really LIKES the house!” So the realtor changed strategies and worked on the relationship aspect, and how we’d all really seemed to liked each other. At the previous meeting with all of us they had mentioned that their own home was just up the street (this one had been an investment property), and they really liked the idea of her being their neighbor. And how that was important.

So he left them with her offer, letting them know that it was her absolute best.

The next day the news came back. The house was under contract.

 

Hers.

She settles in February.

So it would seem that even though she did not “believe” in consciously applying the steps in attraction what she wanted, she “inadvertently” fell into the middle of it, with a white-hot focused burning desire, excluding everything else.

And yes, she expressed doubt a few times. But she also spent endless hours thinking about “her” house and how much she wanted it.

And what she thought about with focus and passion manifested.

 

Makes you wonder what somebody who DOES believe in all this foo-foo stuff, and does INTENTIONALLY create that desire, that focused image, and concentrates on it with burning hot emotion, could accomplish …
