I promised in the last blog post on success to give you some real life examples of how the Law of Attraction works. This week I will tell you a short story about something that happened in my life. Although this story relates to finding a flatmate the principles involved in being successful with your art are just the same.
The story starts with a phone call from a real estate agent. He wanted to know if I had a certain Miss X living with me and what I thought about her as a tenant as she had given my name as a reference. All this was news to me. I had no idea she was moving out. So to cut a long story short, I then had to advertise for a flatmate….. Now I had been through this before so I got out my focus wheel for what I wanted in an ideal flate mate and studied it again.
Now finding a flat mate is an easy thing you might say, however not so easy to find a female, vegetarian, non smoker, no not as easy really as you might think. However look at what unfolded…….
Well the first call I got was from a bloke – for heaven’s sake….. however he was a non smoker and a vegetarian – so the universe got that part right.
So even though I didn’t really want to live with a guy, I decided to meet him for coffee. Well we got on pretty well, and he decided to come and look at the place in a couple of days, which he did.
In the mean time I got another call from a lady Sue who was – a vegetarian, a non smoker and an artist herself! Can you believe that.
She was also keen to come and see the house, so we organized that and in the interim I got a call from J saying he’d found somewhere else with more room. Anyway Sue moved in and all proceeded well.
However there is another amazing side-story to this event, which had begun a couple of years before this. I had left a relationship 4 years previously and was now thinking about the possibility of looking for someone. However a good friend said to me, why don’t you write down everything you would like in a relationship. Put a heading for the following things thatyou would like in a partner -Physically, Mentally, Emotionally and Spiritually and list at least 15-20 attributes under each one. This made me really think deeply about the kind of person I wanted to be with. So I did that and then forgot all about it.
So to return to the renters, J had called to say he didn’t want the place and for some reason I said, “well OK fine – would you like to stay in touch. ” I’m always open to connecting with like minded people. Well we went for an afternoon coffee and ended up talking for 4 hours and as they say – the rest is history. And the irony is that now all the other flat mates have moved out and J moved in and we have been living together for just on a year!
This is a true story. The universe bought the love of my life- right to my front door. There is no way in all the world I could have orchestrated all those turn of events – I’m still amazed to this day at how that happened!! AND he ticks nearly every single item I had on those lists that I made many months before.
The KEY thing here tho is that I had no anxiety around looking for a partner, heck I wasn’t even really looking, and certainly didn’t feel ready when he came along. I followed my intuition however and WOW – Amazing!! BUT I did put out clearly what I wanted in a flat mate and I have ended up with as near perfect as I could wish for!
I think we have to be patient and allow the universe time to arrange it all and whatever we desire can surely come along.
