My man Laz is my gardener. He has been helping me maintain my back yard since 2005. He is a funny fella, big burley man, who loves to talk a fair bit. I have to admit, much as I love nature, yard work is just not my thing.
When I first met Laz and engaged him to help me with yard work and snow removal, I was going through a very difficult period in my life that involved, marriage break down and the transition of my mother after a prolonged illness. I think I must be spending more time outside the vortex in those days than I do now. No wonder the law of attraction matched me up with Laz!
Laz pretty much reflected back to me the way I was feeling, even though in those days I didn't recognise it or think of it that way. He was always focused on things in his business and his life that weren't going the way he wanted them and he loved telling everyone about them.
He complained about the boys he hired to help him. He complained about his truck breaking down and needing to replace it. He complained about putting up Christmas lights and taking down Christmas lights. He complained about not having enough work or having too much work.
He did a good enough job and I started trusting him, so the years went by. I didn't spend quite as much time talking to him though and had learnt how to interrupt a conversation and leave when I had to. Lately, with the recession and what not, Laz's business suffered quite a lot - at least that is what he told me every time I saw him.
Then there was a gap of a few months as we didn't really have too much snow this year - I saw him when he came around to do the spring clean-up. He was really happy. It was a nice change. He told me that his money troubles were over - his wife had inherited a large sum of money from relatives she didn't even know, who had passed away somewhere over seas. They were waiting to receive the money and in the meantime they were dreaming of all the wonderful things they were going to do when the money arrived. He felt as if they had won the lottery! I was thrilled for him - wonderful to hear such stories of good fortune and windfall gains.
He was still concerned about his debt burden and the fact that business was not back to normal yet - but he was looking towards the future with a lot of hope.
Hope is all we need.
A couple of weeks went by and Laz came around again. I was at home when he came so I stepped out to say hello. Laz was totally energized! He looked different and felt different. He smiled, and told me that April and May were the busiest he has ever been in his business for a very very long time! He had so much business that it was proving difficult for him to manage. He would soon be employing others to do the work for him while he concentrated on managing and marketing the business. He couldn't believe it - but I could.
I closed the door and sent him blessings. It was the law of attraction at work indeed. No sooner had he given up talking about what wasn't working and dreaming about getting the inheritance, everything in his life changed for the better. It might still be a year or so before the estate is wound up and the money received, but just the thought of abundance had given Laz so much more of it.
How did it come? I think this wanting was great - and a lot of momentum had built up. His wife on the other hand, is a very simple person, money doesn't concern her very much - she was allowing. He asked and she allowed it to come, and now they are both allowing.
I think it is wonderful to observe how the law of attraction is at work all around us.
