Thank you Universe, Rhonda and team, and everyone who writes stories here.
I am very grateful for my job at a time when many people have bought into the fear about the economy and therefore by the LOA keep that fear a reality. Every year the directors of the agency I work for give Holiday bonuses; some years have been generous, others not so much. This year I put the intention out that the directors would give everyone a great bonus because they have enjoyed prosperity at the hands of their staff, and it happened. I even had an amount in mind for mine and actually got $7 more than what I asked for. But this is not the end of the holiday bonuses!
Besides my children and husband, I buy gifts for our nieces and nephews that are under 18 (six of them). My mother and I do Secret Santa (optional) within the agency and then my program does a name exchange. When I went out shopping last weekend, I had a budget in mind for everything, but I again used the LOA to attract the perfect gifts at great prices. I finished all of my shopping in about six hours spread over two days and everything I bought came in at or below budget – bonus!
Here is the next holiday bonus I received that could have ended far differently. My brother is divorcing and his wife is a good friend of mine. I made it clear to both of them that I was not taking sides in this as it is between the two of them. Unfortunately my brother sees me as a “traitor” to him for not ending my friendship with her. This year is my turn to host our family holiday party but my brother “W” refuses to attend. When I spoke to Mom, she told me the holiday party was on hold for the moment. My other brother told me that because W wasn’t going to attend, our mother was also not going to go because she did not want him to be alone on Christmas. I was initially angry about this with Mom and W because I felt they were creating division that was not just affecting the two of us, but the whole family.
I knew I had to get back into the right frame of mind, so I meditated with the intention to let go of my anger and to be filled with holiday cheer again. Then when I was centered, I put the intention out that this holiday season would be enjoyable and fun. I called my mother back about a week later when I was in a happy state (the day I got the work bonus actually), and she told me everything was still on for the party at my home – bonus. We briefly discussed what was going on with my brother and I told her that W was more than welcome in my home because he is my brother and I love him. Whether he will come or not is up to him, but where there was division forming, there is now harmony once again and I know it is because I loved the situation back to a harmonious state.
