You know, the Law of Attraction really works! It is something I practice daily but sometimes I have to be reminded. For the past 10 years that I have been going to our local post office, I have not had good success in getting in and out quickly. Every single time I went in to mail a package, there would be a long line. That was until this week.
As I started off to the post office, I immediately thought, “Man, it is going to be crowded.” I quickly caught myself and focused on having an empty line when I got there even though my belief told me this wasn’t possible. I did my visualization and released the outcome. When I got to the post office, sure enough, there wasnt’ a single person in line. I walked straight up and mailed my packages. In and out in less than 3 minutes! The funny thing is that when I was walking out, there were over 10 people standing in line. Interesting, huh?
Fast forward to the next day. I was again on my way to the post office and my thought was, “Man, it is going to be crowded.” Due to my state at the time, I just couldn’t change it. Sure enough, I got to the post office to find at least 10 people in front of me. Some of them with 10-15 packages to mail AND they were short a window person. It took me a good 30 minutes to mail my packages.
Fast forward to earlier today. It was the busiest part of the day (so I have “learned”) for the post office and I was on my way to ship some more packages. My instant thought was, “It is going to be so packed!” I quickly caught myself and changed that thought. I visualized an empty line and getting in and out within 5 minutes. As I walked in, there was only one person working but there was only one person checking out. By the time I walked up to get in line, that person left and I walked straight up to mail my packages. As I was leaving 3-4 minutes later, there was a line of at least 10 people. Very interesting.
I tell this story because prior to this past week, I NEVER got in and out in less than 20 minutes. However, the two times I practiced visualization and changed my negative thoughts this week, I got exactly what I intended the outcome to be. Some may say it was a “coincidence” but I say it is focused intention. I challenge you to practice changing your negative thoughts and using visualization. What do you have to lose?
Peace and gratitude,
