Just browsing through my diary and I recalled this incident. In 2005 when I moved to Sydney for work, I got the lease to my first rental apartment with 2 rooms, which I attracted by using my imagination (the story of how I got it was revealed in an earlier blog entry). I tried to rent out the 2nd room to reduce the amount of rent I was paying. And I wanted to rent the room for $215 per week. I determined the qualities of the type of tenant I wanted. I wanted to have someone clean, honest, quiet, preferably a student and a non-smoker. The technique I used was one of a method I now teach in my book ‘Secret Techniques For Manifesting’.
Within a few days, a young male international student called me, expressing interest to inspect the apartment. That night he came and he was the type of person that fitted my criteria for a good tenant. But as he was about to leave he began to negotiate the rent. He said he only wanted to spend $200 on rent each week, and asked that we split the utility bills. He was a very good negotiator and as I didn’t want to lose such a good prospective tenant, I reluctantly agreed. We agreed to sign the contract and for him to get the keys from me on a Thursday. It was then a Monday.
After he left, I reconsidered it and thought $200 per week was a bit low, considering I owned all the furniture in the apartment, and I had paid a lot of money on the security bond to the agent to secure the lease. I did more mental work over the next 2 days.
On Thursday, I decided I should renegotiate with him when I meet him again that night, to try to get the original rent I advertised for.
But something amazing happened. I met him on the main street to pass him the keys and to collect his deposit money (he was scheduled to move in on that Saturday). I was all ready to renegotiate the rent with him. But before I could open my mouth to get to the topic, he said,
“Charlie, I have something I want to tell you. I want to pay you $215 rent that you asked for.”
I was stunned by his statement, and I was very curious why he changed his mind. I asked him why.
He continued, “I spoke with my mum yesterday on the phone about renting this room, and she told me to pay you the rent you originally asked for, to include the utility bills in the rent. Is this ok? “
I didn’t even have to open my mouth to renegotiate at all. My subconscious mind synchronized the result, by getting his mum to tell him what I was mentally telling him.
