From appreciation to growth
Thank you to all who have been sharing stories; they are an inspiration to read! I have been in the practice of occasionally asking the universe for things, for many years. Since these requests have often been granted I decided a couple months ago to make this practice more consistent.
I specifically have been focusing on financial growth. I have been framing money in the positive, focusing on what I have, and not what I lack. I have taken moments to pause and appreciate all that I have: materially, relationally, and health-wise.
During this practice two unexpected checks appeared to me. One I found while organizing my taxes. It was an old check from a customer’s insurance company. I was shocked to find it, as I am usually relieved to get payments from insurance companies (billing can be complicated and slow) and I usually immediately detach the check from the invoice and place it in my wallet. I just can’t imagine how this check was missed. It’s as if it had just materialized. I was so excited to find it, then it occurred to me that it had likely expired. I pushed this thought out of my mind, and visualized the check cleared in my bank account. Happy to report that is what happened!
The next check was receive in the mail, totally unexpected. This check was from a different insurance company who had mistakenly paid my customer for my services, instead of me. This happened a year ago, and at the time, I disputed the payment, and they refused to correct it. To receive this check in the mail a year later was so exciting. For those of you who work with health insurance billing, I’m sure you can understand how unusual this situation is!
Lastly, I received a raise at work. I had accepted a promotion a few months ago, and it was scheduled to start in February. When I was offered the position a pay increase had not been discussed and I was not sure what the situation would be. When I began the position, my boss informed me that I would in fact be getting a raise, and that she and my supervisor spoke, and “want you to have as much money as you can.” When do bosses ever say that?! When you practice LOA they do!
