I adore the Law of Attraction. I have used it to attract many things. However, one thing has stumped me for a bit.
Back when I first started working with the Secret I put the request forward that I wanted to have enough money to be a stay-at-home mother for at least a while until my daughter was older.
Next thing you know, I’ve got a job working at home.
Great! But I wanted financial security, and I had a hunch to start playing the lottery. So I started playing.
I focused on that, and nothing happened.
As things became frustrating in my work at home job, I unwittingly put the request forward to not have to work, to just be a mom at home.
Next thing I know, I’m unemployed.
I had asked for other things, like the home I am living in that to my amazement waltzed into my life, as well as other things.
But I had that hunch about the lottery, and I kept focusing on it, instead of the original request; to have enough financial security to just be a stay at home mom for a time until my daughter was older…
Amazingly, I have won a couple of small prizes from the Powerball. Once I put out the intention that I would win by the end of a certain month, and on the very last drawing of the month I won but not the jackpot.
I love this life. I want to continue. I adore being able to keep the home clean and relax in the bathtub listening to Dvorak breathing in the relaxing lavender scents…
I am doing something wrong. I think it is a matter of focus, for perhaps I am focusing on the hunch instead of the original request…
So now I am going to follow the hunch, but work more on the original request. Gratitude about how I am living my life today, and a desire to continue living my life just this exact way, with plenty of money to go around.
I am still going to follow my hunch, but I’m not going to worry about it so much. It is only a hunch, not the original request.
After several months of misplaced focus, it will definitely be an adjustment, but that’s okay.
Sometimes you have to evaluate your requests and make sure you are asking for what you REALLY want.
I need to do that..
