The funny thing for me is that I have always believed in the Law of Attraction, however, I didn’t know it had a name. From the time I can remember, I believed in positive thinking bringing positive results. I knew there was something missing with that logic because just thinking about it wouldn’t necessarily make it happen. I already used visualization (in sports) teamed with positive thinking to become a very good 4-sport athlete. As I got older, I realized the missing ingredient to make the Law work for you was taking action.
I have lots of stories of the Law of Attraction because I live it every day. Little things that most people believe are “coincidences” occur every single day to me. My story for this article involves manifesting a repair to my roof caused by wind damage. I live in the DFW area and we had a major wind storm with winds topping out at 85MPH in our town. My roof was badly damaged and there were thousands of roofs damaged in the Metroplex. I called my roofing company and it took nearly 2 hours to get someone live on the phone. They told me that there were about 350 people ahead of me because of the damages from the storm. I left my information and they told me it would be a minimum of 2 weeks before they could even take a look at it to give me an estimate. That was Thursday around noon.
For the first couple of hours after the call I was frustrated and worried because the forecast was for more severe thunderstorms over the next week. Also, from my attic you could actually see daylight in several places which meant major water damage if it rained. The next morning on my way to the office, I decided I would try positive affirmations and visualization. I didn’t set any expectations or deadlines, I just visualized my roof being taken care of whether it was because the rain that was forecasted would miss our house for the next several weeks or my roof would be repaired. Within ten minutes, yes ten minutes, after starting the positive affirmations and visualizations something strange happened.
My phone rang and it was the roofing company. They said that there was someone in our area and might be able to stop by today. I was floored. I continued to do positive affirmations and visualizations on and off all day long. When I got home, the roofing company was working on the repair and actually completed the major repair. As they started coming down from the ladder, it started to rain. And I mean rain. It poured for the next two days.
I was so grateful because if they had not come that day, I would have had serious water damage because of the holes in the roof from the wind damage. By changing my negative outlook to a positive one, then practicing visualizing a positive outcome without putting restrictions on HOW it was going to turn out, actually led the Law of Attraction to get my roof repaired. If they had come a day or even a couple of hours later, major damage would have resulted.
I suggest that even if you do not believe in the Law of Attraction, try it anyway. What do you have to lose but sending positive energy where it was negative before.
Peace and gratitude,
