The other day I was in desperate need of a manicure. Due to a busy work schedule, time ran away from me, and I called the nail salon mid-week to schedule the appointment. Unfortunately, when I reached the receptionist, she informed me that there were no Saturday or Sunday appointments available for the week. I was disappointed as I had my heart set on Saturday morning at 11 am. I booked my manicure for the next best time which, was Friday at 5:30 pm. I was flexible and agreed to the new date and time.
The rest of my week was consumed by work. The week flew by but, in my mind, I kept picturing myself at the salon on Saturday at 11 am. I imagined what I would do in the morning before my appointment. I told myself I would get a coffee at Starbucks before. I thought about the color I would choose, sitting in the beautiful chairs, chatting with the manicurist. Friday comes and, I have the same thoughts. I ended up working later than I planned and, 5:30 came and went. I never went to the salon. It never registered in my mind that I had an appointment at 5:30. The salon never called me to ask me if I was coming to my scheduled appointment. Instead, I worked, had dinner, watched TV, spoke on the phone with friends and, kept believing that my manicure was planned for Saturday at 11 am.
Saturday arrives. I wake up, get dressed, drive to my appointment. I walk into the salon stating that I have an appointment at 11 and who I had scheduled with. The receptionist said you are not in the appointment book.
She asked the two ladies I requested if they will take my appointment. They said yes, they needed to wrap up their current client and then will be able to accommodate me.
I was able to get my coffee before my appointment and have my manicure, although I was told that there were no appointments available during the weekend.
I realize that I had manifested easily what I had wanted, a manicure at 11 am on Saturday. I forgot the fact that there was no availability when I called to schedule. That detail slipped my mind. I believed that I would have my appointment. I never doubted it. I also did not think about the opposite of my desire. There was no self-doubt, no pessimistic scenario, no plan b, no thoughts other than I have an appointment at 11 am on Saturday.
I am sharing this funny example of the power of our thoughts and beliefs. I finally attracted what I want and had the appointment align with my strong desire and faith. I finally focused only on what I want and not what I do not wish for.
Wishing you a mini mani miracle or any miracle you choose.
Keep on seeking! Keep on Dreaming!
