The Secret by Rhonda Byrne was a great book for explaining to me why I have so much with so little. Although I never made a lot of money I still got everything I ever wanted. I would send out an order to the universe. I need sheets. As soon as I did that, every yard sale I went to had sheets for sale. I had more sheets than I could use in no time. I do the same thing with earrings, brooches and beads. Whenever I ask the universe for stuff, stuff magically appears in my life. People think I'm crazy until they ask me for something and I bring to them within a matter of days. My husband does this all the time with stuff for his mother. He tells her that he is the messenger of the universe. Whether she needs a toaster, a kettle or whatever, suddenly they start appearing everywhere. Although, you have to be generous and give away freely for more to come. With a clenched fist no money can flow in or out.
I practiced this once with cashmere sweaters, my favorite. I asked for them and they started to come. I find that once you have two of what you want more and more just seem to appear. It's like they all want to be together. The secret does work. I don't know how or why and I don't care.
