At yoga class today, a woman from Israel named Rivka told us that her daughter Aliza had received a dollar bill in change on which someone had drawn a swastika and written “Heil Hitler!” Disgusted, Aliza said a prayer asking God to change the energy of the bill from toxic to positive, then used it to buy a scratch-offf ticket for her son’s birthday. Since Andre’s birthday, December 26, coincided with Hanukah, she bought three more tickets for a present for him.
That evening, after dinner and observance of Hanukkah, the family lit the Hanukkah candles and Andre opened his presents. He was overjoyed when one of the tickets was a $100 winner! Two other tickets also netted some cash, and he ended up with $110 in winnings.
What a nice example of turning a bad feeling into a feel-good story!
