My friend Rachel Bird told a quick story about how the law of attraction is working in her life. In her blog post, she masterfully weaved a wet toilet seat and a Roger Federer jacket into the same story, which can be difficult to do! Here’s how she manifested her desire:
A few days ago I realized my favorite sweater, a trendy white and gold Baby Phat number, is getting undeniably stained. I thought, “Aw, I’d really like another white sweater.” I haven’t been shopping in months and didn’t have any plans to go. I just put the idea out there and forgot about it.
This was around the same time I’d been thinking, “I really want a Roger Federer jacket, the official kind with his logo.” That’s just ludicrous but he’s been wearing this slick black one at his matches recently and I have begun to covet it. I looked it up and it retails for $120. Way out of my price range.
Yesterday this guy who follows me on Twitter sent me a picture of the black RF jacket he found at a store. He said he’d buy it if he had the money. That made me think about looking it up on eBay. And boom. There was a white and gold Wimbledon RF jacket in my size on auction with the starting bid of $30. The auction ended in 7 hours and the seller is in the next town over. There were a lot of RF jackets for sale but all were Buy It Now for $120 except that one. I won it for $36 and I’m meeting him at the post office down the street tomorrow to pick it up.
Seriously! What is that!?
All I can think is that I’m doing some work with energy and I’m learning magnetization. It is AWESOME. Heartily recommended.
Note that Rachel didn’t just send an intention out into the ether and wait passively for her desire to manifest itself. She did her part by following her guidance and making an effort. Given Rachel’s last name, this quote is even more appropriate:
God gives every bird his worm, but He does not throw it into the nest.
P. D. James
And what are the odds of the seller living in the next town over instead of halfway across the country? Very cool, Rachel. Well done!
