I have been aware of the Law of Attraction since The Secret was first released. I admit I haven’t always practised it, but I have used it for little things like car parking spaces that my kids and I have fun with. As we are approaching where we want to park, we all say “Thank you for the car park” and 99 times out of 100 we park where we want to.
The interesting thing about my recent story is that I was unaware that I was actually practising the The Law of Attraction at the time, but in hindsight, it is obvious that I was.
My partner recently had a heart attack, (he’s ok, btw) and he was the main income source for our family.
I had been raising the kids for the past 11 years. I had some self employed work in that time but it really wasn’t enough to keep us going alone. We felt he should have a break from working to ensure his recovery as his work was very labor intensive.
We had a some discussion about me getting a full time job, with him thinking I did not want to work full time. I didn’t really have a problem with that, but I wanted to ensure the kids still got everything they needed from him, if I was not around as much. I’m a bit fussy when it comes to the kids, I just love them so much and knew I would miss them.
So, I sat down at the table, flung open the paper and there were two jobs advertised with our local council. I said “Look, here’s two jobs, I’ll get one of these!”. One was for 3 months the other for 6 months.
Keeping in mind I hadn’t “officially” worked for 11 years, let alone had a resume, I found an online self resume maker and applied for the job.
In the time I was waiting to hear, I told everyone I know that I was getting this job. I get a bit excited about things and can’t shut up! We had plans to take a trip around Australia and this was all just perfect timing. The 6 month job was the one I wanted and that was the one I assumed I was getting. It would allow enough time for my partner to fix up things around the house in preparation for the trip while I worked and earned some decent money.
A few weeks later, I was called in for an interview and I got the job!
I feel so blessed and love the fact that I can learn more about The Law of Attraction while I work! I drive a little truck around all day listening to CDs.
Since then I have been much more aware of my thoughts and I am now focusing on my new car that arrives at the end of this month. I’ll take a picture of me in it, when I get it!
