It Works In Strange But Bewildering Ways!
Without being aware of my thought patterns, I have been a negative thinker all my life. I was subjected to a lot of abuse at home, bullying at school, college and office and it reinforced my idea of worthlessness. Little wonder then, I have always been in the middle of chaos. I
have been gingerly stepping into the world of LOA the last few months, and after a few incidents I am slowly turning me into a believer. Although LOA has been within my field of vision for some time, almost as if the universe is pushing me to apply it, I had never found the inclination or time for it.
Recently, I discovered it is all about just thinking of a situation with a sense of depth, grace, warmth and positivity and it actually comes true. And the key lies in thinking, and just letting go and getting on with your life.
I was doing a Yoga retreat in August 2014, when I remember lying on the floor in shavasana and thinking how wonderful would it be to hear a grey hornbill in the area. The surroundings were full of bird calls and I thought it would be possible for the hornbill species to exist in the area.
Barely a week later I was in shavasana again, and all of a sudden I heard a screeching call in the background several times over. I broke into a smile in my meditative state, the hornbill had come. What are the odds of the exact species out of 150 others known to occur in my city?
I had also randomly thought how lovely it would be to go to a five star hotel for a meal. That also came true a couple of months in.
The other day I casually made a list of famous alcohol blends I wanted to try and simply forgot about it. Today my friend invited me in a message asking to come over for a round of drinks in her house the coming week. In her bar is Glenfiddich which is on my list!
I also was thinking to myself wishfully one day in 2014, how lovely would it be to visit a well known luxury heritage palace hotel in my city. I had never been there and really wanted to see the premises. One day, all of a sudden, the coordinator of my local birding group called and invited me along on a trip to the palace for a survey on the premises! We had a gala time and spent hours at the hotel and I had a wonderful time! It is fascinating because I had never really bothered or thought of wanting to see this palace before. But the first time I really focused on it and became aware of it, it happened.
The LOA also works for negative things. There have been days when I have thought of a negative thing, and it actually came true and immensely hurt me. So thinking positively is terribly important. Take inspired action and it really comes true!
The trick is just to think of it positively and clean forget about it and keep taking inspired action. Go about your life and it actually comes true. There are many more interesting stories I can mention which are nothing more than amazing synchronicity. But I hope to write them all out separately here one day!
