Ever wonder if what I preach really works? Well just recently I experienced a few moments of belief when I was talking to my mother the other day and she was a really down. She was crying about having a really hard time with some finances and couldn’t see how things would get better. It hurt me to hear her sound so down and in disbelief. I had just gotten off a long shift at work where it was total chaos and I was stressed out from trying to get several catered events out the door all at one time.
When I called her I was expecting to hear her soft voice and knew it would make me feel better. But when she answered the phone she was crying and it kind of freaked me out. I was taken back by the tone in her voice and asked her what was wrong. She said she was feeling so down about things and how her money situation didn’t seem to going in the right direction. She felt so discouraged and was at her wits end.
I remember all too well how hard it is when things aren’t going to well and how that feeling can put you in a place of disbelief. Five years ago it was really hard for me and I felt as if I couldn’t get out of a terrible hole I was in, until I started using the power of positive thinking. After my father was ill and I was trying to get back on my feet after taking care of him and being out of work, I didn’t have a place to live and I had one week to find a home. I had no idea of how it was going to work out and everyone else was worried for me. But I decided at that moment that I didn’t know how it was going to happen, it just was. I got my old job back at the catering company on a fluke and I found the house that ended up being the place that I still live right now. I knew it was only temporary, because I believed.
I mentioned to her that her situation was only temporary and that she needed to create a positive energy source to bring good into her life. Feeling down and sad would only encourage more negativity and that is something she needed to get rid of instead of attract.
She said that they had applied for a credit card and was hoping to get it in the mail to bridge to the finances until some work opened up. One thing that I said to her to was live in the moment and to not look too far into the future with expectations or she would be disappointed. That she needed to take it minute by minute, day by day and something would unfold. We don’t know what is going to happen in the next few hours or the next day. So being upset about it and feeling down doesn’t bring any glory into our lives.
We visited for a few minutes and we hung up. She went by the post office and few minutes later I got a text that read….”We got the credit card!” I sent one back that read “see…”
We didn’t talk for a couple of days and then when we did she was in much better spirits. I asked her how things were going and if she was keeping her head up and staying positive. She said she was and that she really enjoyed talking with me the other day. It made her really think and re-evaluate her emotions.
She also said “Guess what?...You’re not going to believe this! Honey just got a new job and he starts tomorrow!”
Now if that isn’t proof of what of I preach, I don’t know what is…As I say…You have to BELIEVE to RECEIVE. You see – if you don’t put your emotions into a positive place and know that you know that somehow it will all work out then you will never experience the positive power of the laws of attraction.
Try it and see what happens in your life! I bet you will be surprised.
Thanks for stopping by…Blessings my friends…Stormy
