Is there a place that you dread to go to because it always seems to challenge your positivity? Somewhere that the people all seem to have frowning Magnets and no matter how good you were feeling before you got there, you always seem to have your feel-good-feelings chipped away at instantly by this place and the people there?
For me, this place was Costco on Staten Island, NY (my old hometown). I would rather cross the bridge and drive to New Jersey to go to Costco than cross the negativity threshold that was the Staten Island Costco parking lot.
Going there meant that I could expect to be surrounded by rude, self-centered people, a crazy parking lot and a fast paced, congested store that even Speedy Gonzales would have trouble navigating. Are you getting the picture now? Did a place like this come to mind for you?
In hindsight, I now realize how I was completely attracting this outcome to myself whenever I decided to go to that Costco. I would let my Magicality Magnet immediately begin to teeter after making the decision to shop there. It’s like my thoughts sent the signal to the movie projector worker to change the films from a happy shopping experience to the “I HATE THIS PLACE!” movie, and that’s exactly what I got, every time.
Unfortunately, at the time, I wasn’t as aware of my thoughts and the law of attraction like I am now so I just usually did my best to avoid that Costco.
I am in love with my new hometown; everyone is extremely friendly and, for the most part, do nothing but contribute to raising my, and my family’s, energy vibration. Because everyone, everywhere, is so great, it really stands out when I go someplace that doesn’t seem to live up to those high standards.
This place in my new hometown would be Shoprite. It seems that the times I’ve shopped in there, my positive vibes are not reflected back to me when I share a warm smile with someone I pass or speak politely when someone is in my way. Instead, I get emotionless looks and people ignoring me. And, oddly enough, my husband shared with me that he had similar experiences the times he had shopped there. But, today was different.
Today, when I made my list and informed my husband that I would be running to the store, I set the intention of having a wonderful experience at Shoprite and my intentions were met with smiling magnets.
First, someone quickly pulled into a parking spot that I was going to take and when I began to drive by her, she quickly rolled down her window and apologized; her kind gesture put a smile on my face which then landed me a parking spot right in front of the store. And the trip just got better from there; everyone was friendly, polite and exuded a brighter energy. I was so happy to come home and update my husband on my wonderful Shoprite experience.
Let my example be a lesson for you to learn from. Living the Law of Attraction, living Magicality, is an ongoing journey; we all evolve at our own speed. It took me some time but I got here and so can you! So set the intention for a good experience the next time you have to go to that place that tests your positivity, keep your spirits high and your Magnet smiling at everyone, and EXPECT something wonderful!
