Many years ago, I was pursuing an acting career in Los Angeles. I was lucky enough to find a small-time agent who believed in the law of attraction. Mind you, this was before The Secret or Jerry and Ester Hicks. Anyway, she introduced me to this powerful principle, and instructed me on how to “attract” the acing jobs I wanted. So, I picked the most popular television show at that time and declared: “I want to be on Dynasty.” Then, I made a second request: “I want to make enough money to be eligible for medical benefits through the Screen Actors Guild.”
First, I had an opportunity to meet the casting director for Dynasty. I actually got dressed in my most fabulously glamorous outfit and went to the meeting not really expecting anything to come of it. There is one thing I should mention here: At the time, Dynasty did not have any black actors on the show. So for me to even think I would get on the show was pretty far-fetched; however, I didn’t walk around thinking I would not get on the show. Instead, my only thought was that I wanted to be on the show.
Shortly after meeting the casting director, they contacted my agent to see if I was available for a small part on the show. A few days later, I was in a scene with Ali McGraw, Linda Evans and John Forsythe, and my day rate of pay tripled which made me eligible for medical benefits!
It was years later when I made the connection between what I asked for and what I manifested. I often wonder what would have happened if I had asked for more. But the trick with the law of attraction is to ask for what you believe you can receive. If your thoughts are not a “vibrational match” with your desire, you delay or even block the manifestation.
After Rachel and Matthew had their first child, they had a couple of fights. Well, okay, more than a couple—they fought for over three years. They fought about schedules. They fought about bad habits. They even fought about the lawn mower. And besides actually having their child, it was the best thing that could've happened.
