The shopping cart game
A couple of months ago I started playing a game when I went grocery shopping - it kinda just happened on it's own, but it has been a powerful reminder to me about how easy it is to manifest the things we want.
So here's how it all started.
It all started the day I went to get grocery but did not have a quarter to get a shopping cart. As I was driving to the store, I said to myself "wouldn't it be nice if I could get a free cart?" then I got busy appreciating the trees on my way there and of course listening to Abraham in the car.
I parked my car and guess what? not very far away there was an abandoned cart with the quarter still in it! Fantastic! That day I got paid to do my grocery - not only that but when I came out there was another abandoned cart just behind my car. Wow! I thought - this is pretty powerful stuff.
The next week as I set out to go grocery shopping I smiled and thought about what had happened last time, and wondered if it would happen again. What do you think? Yeah! I got a free grocery cart again and came home richer by a quarter.
So now for the past many months it has become a game I look forward to. I have noticed that when I am not as high flying, there is no cart for me going into the store. But it makes me realize that I am not on a high flying disc and as I move through the store I appreciate so many things and the fact that we eat well and that I have the money to pay for all the grocery, and how much fun we will have with the ice cream I just bought etc - and what do you know? every time, there is a shopping cart with a shiny quarter waiting for me to come out of the store. There have even been times when I have found abandoned carts without quarters in them - but the point is I find the carts.
Not only that, it has helped me spot the very subtle difference in feeling between being on a high flying disc that brings me the disc and a less high flying disc where the cart appears for me when I am leaving the store. It has helped me to get more deliberate about using Abraham's processes.
I got my cart today - but I noticed that the fun of the game was over for me now - this game is boring - it is time to find a new one. Abraham is right, we can't stay in the vortex for too long - it is boring if we do. We need to come out and experience the contrast, and it does not seem like a very difficult thing to do when you know how to get back into alignment!
Are you going to try the game? If you do, I would really appreciate it if you came back here and left a comment for us to read - it will make it so much more fun!
All my love,
Zehra, that was fun and so true!

Hi Willow, thank you for adding the detail. You are right, many people around the world might not be familiar with the deposit system. It helps to know how it works.

Thank you for this great story. It sounds like fun. But, as a newbie I must ask: I thought that there was (at least sometimes) a bit of time between when you set the intention and when the physical manifestation is able to align itself with your vibration. How, then, are we able to manifest carts in a matter of minutes? Is it that some creations require divine timing, and others do not?

Oops, I have one more question!

Abraham has said many times that if you were always in the vortex you would be dead. The vortex is a place of extreme calm and satisfaction - and it becomes boring to stay in it for too long. The contrast of life is important because when you step outside the vortex, then you appreciate the feeling you feel when you get back in. Make sense?

I don't get how you can get bored in the vortex when being bored is an outside the vortex emotion.

Thanks for your post Zehra, I've had a simular experience with parking spaces. It would always be a close one when I went shopping until I started to think that I should utilize where I park as a means of more exercise. You are right it can get boring but that is because we are constantly expanding to more desires. We will never get it done and we will never get it right and good things happen to us naturally!!!

Wow, your blog has changed! It's been a while since I've been here. You're such an excellent story teller - I LOVE the awesomeness of what most would call "little things". Big things are cool too, obviously, but you know you're on the mark when "little things" blow your socks off!! Or, in my case, when reading about somebody ELSE'S "little things" blows your socks off, LOL! ooxx
