When a Cookie Becomes a Springboard
My parents introduced me to the secret a couple of months ago and I try to watch it several times a week. I had heard of the law of attraction before, but never really took it to heart before viewing this film.
A few weeks ago, I decided to put the concepts to the test with a specific request. I remembered it mentioned in the movie that if you felt like starting small, just concentrate on manifesting a cup of coffee.
Well, since I don’t really drink coffee, I decided to manifest something I would definitely enjoy: a gourmet chocolate chip cookie. I pictured the texture, the chocolate chips, tasted the sweetness in my imagination, and felt the feelings of giddiness and abject pleasure that such a treat would bring. I did this maybe twice in two days. On the third day, I returned to the office from my lunch break, stopped by the kitchen to get a soda and…there it was, staring me in the face: the very cookie I had pictured in my mind! It was sitting on the counter where people tend to put “up for grabs” food items. It was the ONLY THING leftover from a luncheon that had been catered somewhere else in the building. Recognizing it as my “secret” cookie, I happily grabbed it (and a napkin) and went back to my desk to enjoy it.
Admittedly, it was just a cookie…but I’m the one who wanted to start small, right? Now it’s on to bigger and better things…I’ve been looking at buying a house….
