I was hoping that everyone would be home by their fireside enjoying hot cocoa, but I was wrong. It was crowed, and there were traffic jams in the isles. I got the things I wanted and was making my way to the cash register, trying to navigate as best I could, when my toddler lunged at something and shouted at the top of his voice “MAMA”. I stopped, confused, wondering what was wrong. He was pointing at a display with ginormous Lego sets. “I want that for Christmas” he said in a loud excited voice. I suddenly felt like everyone in Walmart was looking at me. I was on stage, and everyone was evaluating how I would handle this situation. “I’ve already got your gift, haven’t you seen the big package under the tree with your name on it”. He knew what I was talking about. “But I want this one” he said, “I don’t want the other thing”. I hesitated for a moment. We love our children and “Christmas is all about making them happy. What’s the point of giving him something that won’t make him happy?” I thought. So, I stopped to see what he was pointing at. Then I chuckled – the Lego set he was pointing at was the one I had already bought for him! It was sitting under the tree beautifully wrapped waiting for him to open it.
We have to Trust that because we have asked, what we want is on its way. We have to Trust that we are always loved and that the Universe wants us to have the things we want. Just because we’re not walking out of the store with it, doesn’t mean we won’t get it.
I use this analogy often as a reminder to myself and those I coach in practicing the Law of Attraction. I am reminded of it every year this time of the year. Wishing everyone the best of the Holiday Season.
