The Money Attracting Challenge: Day 7

by Anne Bellamy, Author of Using The Law of Attraction To Help The Universe Help You

Well, it's been a week since I took up Chauncey Scott's challenge to attract money and I've started to develop a few good habits.  Once again, I went on my 40 minute run, and well, you know what I do, so I won't repeat it.

I will say that one of my affirmations was "I love feeling respected".  Well, just before the run was over, I passed by a woman working in a corner shop, arranging  the fruit and veggie stall outside.  As I ran past, she called out "Good for you!  I wish I was that motivated!"  Hey! A complete stranger giving me props.  Cool.  Thanks Universe!

I've also mentioned that I started rereading Esther and Jerry Hicks' Money and The Law of Attraction and have been trying to put their practice of pivoting into action.

Here's how that's been working out:  Yesterday we went on an historical walking tour of our neightbourhood.  It was a rainy day, but we decided to go ahead with it anyway.  At the beginning, we were all gathered around the tour guide as he gave his introduction.  Then, a man who was standing beside me seemed to look at me, then stand right in front of me, completely blocking me!  The Nerve!  He looked right at me, and decided to stand in front of me (I'm short....5'4").  How dare he!  What has he got against me?

Fortunately, it hit me: Start pivoting!  He's got absolutely nothing against me.  I don't know this person.  He doesn't know me.  Maybe he saw me, maybe he didn't. It's a walking tour, and this is just the beginning, so I'll have plenty of time to move around.  Focus on the tour guide and what he's saying.  So far, he's been interesting.

In no time at all, we started walking, moving around in different groups and configurations.  The tour guide seemed to be in  my view the whole time.  Even the rain decided to stop.  Eventually, near the end, the guide made a joke that not many people heard.  In fact, only two people seemed to hear it.  As I was laughing at the joke, I noticed someone else laughing too.  I looked to the person standing beside me. Yep, that man who blocked me in the beginning.  We looked at each other, smiled and laughed.  This pivoting stuff rocks!
