Law of Attraction: How I Manifested a New Life

A few years ago, I was working at what many would consider to be a dream job with a great salary. However, after 4 years I had had enough of the 4 hour commute each day; having a high salary is wonderful, but if you have no time to enjoy it, you start to wonder why you’re working so hard for it. I knew I wanted to start an online business, but I couldn’t afford to give up my salary and with my schedule I had no time to set up a new business. I decided that if the Law of Attraction really worked, this was the time to put it to the test!

I had been reading various books and listening to CDs by Abraham-Hicks for about 6 months at this point, and had taken on board the concept that “nothing is more important than that I feel good.” I had a 2 hour coach and train commute each way to work, so I started by transferring workshop CDs to my mp3 player so I could listen on the journey to work and back. Most times I fell asleep while listening and woke up to the applause at the end of a workshop.

At work, I kept a small notebook and while most people took a break every hour to go out for a cigarette, I used that time to write a small appreciation of something or someone. It didn’t need to be anything major; for example one of my colleagues had a great sense of humour, and I remember writing “I appreciate G for making me laugh this morning.”

I also made a point of appreciating as much as possible about my boss. There was some friction between us because of his management style and my reaction to it, so I actively looked for things about him that I could appreciate. I remember one of them was that he kept me on, even though I wasn’t really pulling my weight at work at this point.

I had no idea how I could afford to leave this job and start a business of my own; I had no savings and was still carrying credit card debt from several years earlier. I had only been with the company for less than 4 years, so I knew my severance compensation would be very low.

I estimated the amount I would need to live on for 3 months while my new business got off the ground and could see no way of getting it in the near future by any “logical” means, so I gave the whole thing over and let Law of Attraction work its magic. I continued to do my part, which was to keep feeling as good as I could while appreciating as much as possible in my current circumstances.

One day, my boss called me in to a private meeting. He offered me a severance package that not only gave me more than double what I had estimated I would need, he also suggested I continued to work with a specific client under a consultancy contract to the company. I was floored, but on the other hand it was what I’d been working towards – I just hadn’t envisaged how it could happen.

Several years later, I’m living my dream lifestyle at the beach – and I still have that consultancy contract as part of my online business!
