The awakening of a skeptic
Last week I started to read the book, and every night I would visualize, wish, imagine, and be thankful for all I have and all I want. I really wanted to share all these ideas, which felt like ‘home’ to me, with my husband, so I began by simply talking about them. He listened and commented, but didn’t quite get into it. Finally, two days ago, I decided to read to him the exercise about looking at your hands and visualizing them taking the wheel of your own new car. We recently had to sell our car because we are remodeling our home. So we did the exercise, and he laughed at what he calls my childlike innocence (I call it faith). But I really focused on the exercise – I saw the car, I even smelled it.
Well, today, we won a brand new car!!! I have to tell you, it’s not the car either of us visualized, but it’s a new car nonetheless! It’s funny, because the thing that really stuck with me about the book is that we shouldn’t ask “how”, we should just wish.
