Contributor: Mollie Player
A few weeks back, my husband and I were having one of those weeks.
You know what I mean: One of Those Weeks.
He was a little cranky, and I guess I must have been, too (though I can’t verify that). Usually, it doesn’t take much for it to turn around, but it does take something. I just can’t always figure out what.
So this time, I decided to use my law of attraction superpowers and say an affirmation. This is what I said:
“My husband is in a great mood.”
I must admit that because I only said the affirmation like, once, and because it was such a small thing, I didn’t really think that it would work.
But it did.
“My Mollie,” Dave said to me almost as soon as I came home from work the same night. “I love you.” He was smiling, and there were flowers for me on the kitchen counter. For the rest of the night, and during the several weeks since, things have once again felt easy and nice.
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
