A Small Lesson For Me About DOUBT
About week ago I was feeling discouraged for a few hours. Things in life that day just didn’t seem to be going right, one little thing after another, and maybe some big worries were in the back of my mind, like what if the Law of Attraction is a bunch of hooey? I knew that somehow I knew better, but I felt the need to TEST the whole philosophy. I was riding my bicycle through town and thought, “If I see a quarter in the street before I get home, I’ll know the Law of Attraction works”. Then I thought, “No, it has to be TWO quarters. Right next to each other!” Because I knew that a quarter in the street when you’re riding your bicycle isn’t that uncommon, but TWO quarters would be different, unusual. I am low income. :-} Well, I got home and didn’t see any quarters in the street, not even one.
I eventually recovered from my disappointment and still believed in the Law of Attraction, because what ELSE could I do? But still……. why no quarters? I guess I just had more lessons to learn! And I HAVE, I’ve been reading a lot all week long and trying to apply the principles.
Well, this morning, exactly a week later, I was riding my bike through town and there were THREE quarters on the street. Three. Then I rode a little farther, about a half a block and there was another quarter on the street. The Universe doubled my challenge! I’d forgotten about my discouragement the week before but all of a sudden I was in that state of AWE that one gets when there is a manifestation!
And honest to the goddess, to top it all off, later on when I went out on my bike, I found a crumpled two dollar bill on the side of the road. The Universe has a delightful sense of humor!
