The Law of Attraction at Work

I have been studying and practicing the Law of Attraction since January of this year. I have read books, watched "The Secret", and listened to seminars. Little did I know that I was practicing this way of living for most of my life. Whatever I want for myself, when I feel confident and trust that I will receive it then it comes to me. However, when I am nervous or unsure and feel negative about something, I don't get it. Most of my life I was told that I will never have lots of money. That is reserved for the few and privleged. My husband and I make a good salary but seemed to never have a lot of money, because this is something that we were told. We were given a preconceived notion that we will never have an abundance of wealth.Well since I have been studying the Law of Attraction I have shifted my thinking. I have not done anything different except have a more positive belief and confidence about receiving money. Yet in the past few months little things have happened that has brought us extra money. I have been given opportunities to teach enrichment classes that brought me some extra money. (I did not ask to teach them, I was approached by people and asked to teach those classes)At the end of May, my husband was given a bonus without any explanation. I have reopened relationships with people I have not seen in a long time. And just last night I attended a party at a friends house (someone I have not seen in a while) and went home with an extra $130. The premise of the party was to bring your old gold and silver jewelry and exchange it for cash. Jewelers were there to appraise and buy the jewelry from those who attended the party. My friend made 10% of what cash was paid out last night. The jewelers purchased $10,000 in jewelry from the guests and they gave my friend $1,000. I booked a party for them to come to my house and buy jewelry from my guests and I will make the same 10%. These amounts of money are not windfalls, but like I said little things are beginning to occur that is bringing me extra cash all because of my shift in thinking. I am looking forward to more experiences that will continue to bring more abundance to our lives. Below you will find a video with affirmations that may help to shift your thinking.
Today's affirmation reads: "My income is constantly increasing. I begin now today, to open myself to ever-increasing prosperity." Very appropriate given my experience last night. I truly pulled this card at random this morning!
How is the Law of Attraction working for you? Tell us your story. But first enjoy the video

Hi Maureen :)

I have had the same thing happen recently. There is an art to allowing these things to come to you. It definitely makes a huge change when you shift your thoughts. And it happens so quickly! I am still consciously telling myself ' I have enough money for anything I want' and our bank accounts have been filling up from unexpected sources. And I've had a few nice pressies... what girl doesn't love pressies ;)

Hi LIteacher,

This is a very true discovery you made about your life. I was a psychology major in college and there was this idea called "Self-Fulfilling Prophecy". It has to do with your way of thinking and if you want something to happen bad enough it will happen and if you don't think it will happen, you'll do something to sabotage your chances of it happening.

Anyway, changing the way you think really does help you out. I have anxiety issues, I get nervous easily and I was afraid to ask a girl out on a date even though my friends told me she liked me. I didn't believe it, but luckily I have great friends who arranged a group outing for all of us and I found out she did like me... now if it would've been left up to me, I wouldn't be dating anyone cause I was too afraid to ask, but now we're dating thanks to my buddies.

I LOVE hearing stories about LOA working in people's lives. It's so inspiring! Conscious living is the way to go. You're going to create your thoughts.. that's inescapable. You might as well make the effort to make it a GREAT thought!
