Contributor: Bethany, who shares a funny law of attraction story that many of us can relate to a little.
Sometimes, the less resistance we hold, the faster what we desire comes . . . This is my true story of the FREE CAKE!
So: Week one, I go to the outdoor markets on a Saturday. I feel thirsty, and I try–try–to manifest a drink. I picture the drink in my hand; I even feel it there. I feel the cool glass bottle against my palm and fingertips, and I imagine with all my might the delicious cold drink in my mouth and throat.
And then I stop, and look around, and whaddya know: No drink appears in my hand. Darn!
Week two: Off to the outdoor markets again, again on a Saturday. This time, feeling hungry instead of thirsty, I try so hard to manifest free food. But free food at the markets? How would that happen?! All the stall holders charge for their food! However, I want to PROVE to myself that it is possible to manifest free food . . . that I am a MANIFESTING MAGICIAN! So, I try so hard that I imagine even the joy and surprise of receiving the free food. But then, I look in my hands and–you guessed it!–no free food has appeared! NONE!
Ahem. Darn again.
Then, week three: I go shopping again. This time, I am not thinking about free food or drinks at all. I am out with Mum on a Saturday, focusing on buying a barbeque and some outdoor furniture for her. We are in the city, not at the markets. Then, afterwards, she offers to drop me off at the markets. I say yes. She drops me off and I walk over.
And the first thing I see when I get there?
THE MARKET IS CELEBRATING ITS 40-YEAR ANNIVERSARY . . . WITH FREE CAKE, JUICE AND HOT DRINKS FOR EVERYONE.
I got my food, sat down in a beanbag and began munching away, when suddenly, it dawned on me: Ah-ha!! It was when I learned to let go of the desire that it finally came.
And that’s my story of the free cake! The end.
