The Law of Attraction Challenge: Continued

My next item that I wanted to attract to myself (6-7 on the get-ability scale) was a microwave oven.  My husband and I went on holiday for two weeks and when we got back we discovered that our microwave oven stopped working.  So, as I had just received Chauncey's instruction to pick a new item, I decided to attract a new microwave.

I said to my husband "leave it to me.  I'll get us a new one."  This surprised him a bit, as usually he does that sort of thing, but he agreed.  I then added "and if I don't get one within a month, you can take over"
"A MONTH!?!?"  he said, eyes widening.  Obviously he's used to life's conveniences.  I explained that I wanted to use the microwave as my next item on the scale to attract.  Reluctantly, but patiently, he agreed.

I followed the steps a bit better this time.  I wrote a note at my bedside to remind myself to think of a microwave before going to bed.  (I always find little notes to myself help)

About 3 weeks later, and still without microwave, my good friend Rachel called me.  She and her boyfriend had just bought a house and were moving in together.  The house came with kitchen appliances, which included a microwave installed above the oven.  As she and Jason had both lived on their own, they also both came to the party with their own microwaves.  Deciding that they only needed one as a back-up, Rachel was calling me to see if I was interested in having her microwave.

I instantly started laughing which suprised her a great deal.  "What's so funny?"  she asked.  "It's a long story, I'll tell you later.  But yes, we do need a microwave as it goes."  The  next day Jason delivered it to our front door.  

So there it is!  This challenge works!  My next task is to pick an item that's 9-10 on the get-ability scale.  I've got a good one, and I'd love to attract it.  Stay tuned to see how I do!

Law of Attraction Challenge: The far

So, I know it's been awhile since I last blogged about this Law of Attraction Challenge, my birthday to be precise, and I've been given a gentle reminder from Chauncey that I said I'd blogged about the results.  My bad for taking so long!

The challenge required me to pick an item I wanted to attract and think about it regularly (I'm paraphrasing, but for the full explanation click here).  The item I picked was a book.  I had recently attended a weekend seminar called Your Call To Greatness (and if you're in London, I'd highly recommend's free!).  During this seminar, a book was often referred to.  It was called The Magician's Way.  It sounded intriguing and I made a decision that I would purchase this book at the end of the seminar.

Well, a few days after the seminar is when I received the challenge from Chauncey, so my item to pick was easy.  I was going to attract this book!  I know it would have been simple to just buy it off Amazon, but that felt like cheating, so I followed Chauncey's a point.  I must confess, I had trouble thinking about this book just before going to sleep.  Some nights I would just crash, others I'd want to read something fictional, but a lot of time, I forgot.  Chauncey advised me to start thinking of this book at various times during the day to compensate, so I did.

About a month later it arrived and here's how.  At my husband's work, there is a book recycling program, which he inadvertantly started.  People brought in their unwanted books and put them in the lunch room for anyone to take. Occasionally he would peruse the books, and bring one or two home for me which he thought I would like.  Well, you can probably guess what happened next.  One day, he came home and said "Oh, I've got another book I thought you'd like."  He reached into his bag, and before I could read the cover, I knew it was my book.  A big smile came over my face and when he handed it to me, I looked at it and read the cover "The Magician's Way".  I let out a humungous laugh, the kind where you throw you head back.  He looked at me like I was crazy. And then I explained all to him.

After telling Chauncey about my success with his challenge, he told me to take it up a notch and pick an item that was a 6-7 on the scale of "get-ability"  Tomorrow I'll let you know what happened.
