I was reading some past newsletters and came across this one from 2011. It put a big grin on my face, so I thought I would share it with you!
Sometimes you have to give marching orders to the Universe.
Let me explain:
A woman who had enrolled in my 8-week course and paid in full up front, had to cancel at the last minute less than an hour before class was due to start. Although I have a "no cancellation" policy because I think it's important for people to keep their commitments, I made an exception due to her circumstances, and refunded her money.
But I was now out $2,000, and I didn't have any time to try to arrange for someone else to take her place. Harumph.
So, I gave the Universe my marching orders:
"Hey, Universe! I just lost $2,000 through no fault of my own. So you owe me $2,000 now. I'm off for the weekend to Pechanga Casino with my buddies, and I expect to win at least $2,000 there!"
I have done this before and I know it works. I am very lucky. I affirm my luck all the time. I visualized winning jackpots, winning at poker, and having fun!
The very next day I arrived at Pechanga, and started playing penny slots. I was sitting at a machine that's one of my favorite types (Roman Tribune), and I really like the graphics. But it wasn't really paying off. All of a sudden, I heard a voice in my head say, "Chellie, this machine isn't doing the job. Although you like the graphics, the machine on your left pays off more often. The purpose of this is to win money, not enjoy the pictures. So move over!"
So I picked myself up and sat down at the machine on my left (China Shores). I think it was about 5 minutes later that I hit it for about 100 free games. During that, I hit one of the biggest symbols covering the screen, and won $960, but then I hit it for another 300 free games! I was stunned. It kept paying off and ended up paying me $1,771!
Well, I felt really great about that, I can assure you. So now the Universe had paid its bill to me, and I happily went off to play another machine...and won another $1,250!
When I got back from Pechanga and back to work, I got another participant in my workshop, too. So that was another $2,000...which means the Universe paid me $5,021 instead of the $2,000 I asked for.
I feel another affirmation coming on..."The Universe always pays my bills in full, and sends double and triple the amount I ask for!"
*Note: With gambling as with other entertainments, have a budget for it, stick to your budget, and then you'll enjoy yourself win or lose.
Love and blessings,
