Recently, I went on a little trip without my husband. He had to work, and I wanted to see my family, so off I went. I was only away for two days, but when I got back, I liked what I saw.
He was so, so happy to see me.
“I love you so much. I missed you,” he told me over and over again.
Always a nice thing to hear. But what made this experience interesting is that two days prior, while I was at the beach with my family, I used the law of attraction and an affirmation to make that moment happen.
See, before I left, David was acting–well, he was acting a little cranky. He didn’t like whatever it was he was doing at work that day. He was unhappy that I was leaving. And he was just a little out of sorts.
It was just the normal kind of stuff, and yet it upset me a lot. So, when I was away, I said this affirmation:
“My husband is loving and attentive.”
I didn’t think much more about it after that, knowing that David’s usual demeanor would return at the right time. As it turned out, the right time was pretty much right away.
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.
