Gratitude During Corona Virus Outbreak.
The news was full of stories about the coronavirus outbreak and that supermarket shelves were emptying as people engaged in panic buying and stockpiling. At that moment I knew I had a choice. I could either allow myself to succumb to scarcity mentality and fear of the virus, or I could choose to be grateful for what I had. As I have worked with Rhonda Byrne’s wonderful books and CDs for some time, the choice was easy. In fact, it took no effort at all to feel immense gratitude for all the good things that I did have in my life.
Instead of getting angry or worried about the lack of basic items including toilet rolls, kitchen towels, hand wash, pasta, and tinned tomatoes in the shops, I felt grateful for all the times that I had been able to buy these items. I felt gratitude for living in a country where for the vast majority of the time, supermarkets stocking a wide range and abundance of items make it easy for most of us to get whatever we need and want. I felt gratitude for my health and found myself marveling at this miracle we call the human body. Every day, the joy of living in this physical, healthy body filled me with such gratitude that at times I have found myself crying tears of joy. The everyday items that I did have in my home made me feel as rich as a queen.
Having read all of Rhonda Byrne’s books, I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised when this genuine sustained feeling of gratitude starting attracting to me the very items that I needed to restock my home.
It all started a few days ago. I was in the supermarket and had just taken the opportunity to thank a member of staff for all the hard work they were doing. We had a lovely chat and a laugh, and then I headed for the checkout feeling very happy that I had had the opportunity to say thank you. My route took me down one of the very aisles that had been empty for so long. As I walked down, one of the store assistants arrived and started putting packs of kitchen towels on one of the empty shelves; something that I had nearly run out of. He told me that they had been very lucky to obtain just a few packs from the supplier and, as I smiled in gratitude, he handed me a large pack of them, wishing me a good day. Yesterday, when I popped in to get fresh fruit, the aisle I planned to walk down to get to the checkouts was blocked by a trolley, so I had to take the same route as on the previous occasion; the one that had for so long had empty shelves. I stopped in my tracks when I saw that there right in front of me were a few large packs of toilet rolls. The assistant told me that she had just put them out and they were the only ones that had been delivered. So that was another essential supply replenished with perfect timing. A cheery chat with the staff at my local post office followed, with much hearty laughter and the gleam in everyone else’s eyes telling me that they too were filled with gratitude for simply being alive. As I left, on the spur of the moment I felt prompted to pop into my local pharmacy to see if any hand cream had come into stock and there right in front of me on an otherwise empty shelf was a tube of my favorite brand.
These are not the only times that I’ve been blessed with getting supplies of items that are supposed to be completely unobtainable at the moment. I got bottles of my favorite hand wash and packs of bread flour in my local supermarket, passing through at just the moment when a small supply of each was being put on the shelves. There have been so many such bountiful experiences since I made this decision in response to the news, that there are too many to mention here, and I know that all of these are the result of the positive decision I made. It is the result of working with Rhonda Byrne’s wonderful books and CDs. They gave me the knowledge that meant I was able to make that positive decision and that I was able to use the excellent tools she describes to manifest health and abundance in a time when the media is telling us to panic, feel nothing but scarcity, and think nothing but fear.
My experiences over the past week have proved to me beyond a doubt that the law of attraction works.
Thank you, Rhonda, for bringing The Power and The Magic of the law of attraction into my life.
