Last week I manifested a bunch of fun stuff!
$5 off at Walgreens
$5 off at Green Acres
$10 Square boost (after my card messed up at Braum’s, they gave me a $10 boost)
$10 coffee gift card
Gifted with a CD boombox
First, the unremarkable manifesting:
I was on my personal Facebook talking about how everyone wants a record player and vinyl now and I just want something to play CD’s on…so a friend gifted me a CD boombox! I remember my dad spent about $150 on my first one for a teenage birthday (and bought me a Tori Amos CD). Also got the usual $5 off coupons on nearly the same day. I received all with a grateful heart.
Now for the remarkable manifesting!
What was remarkable was my $10 boost from Square! Why? I went to Braum’s for a burger. My Square cash card got declined twice. So I used a different card…which meant I shelled out $21 for one burger that day. In keeping my LOA mindset, I chose to not get upset or annoyed. (Can I just be grateful to have a $21 burger? LOL)
I just sent an email to Square through the app’s support setting. I received a return email asking for more info, but it was a busy day and I was tired. So I didn’t respond. When my Square cash card was declined TWICE in a row, I smiled and THANKED the cashier — it wasn’t her fault — and pulled out another card.
I always place more value on my serenity rather than bitching about minutia!
Old me would have pouted, complained, been embarrassed and frustrated — then would have acted out of all that in anger. I knew I had money and didn’t care what other people thought, though I did explain the card behaves wonky sometimes, like at gas stations. Which apparently Square is aware of, according to the support section of the app.
A few days later, I had forgotten about the incident and Square sent me a message that they were sorry and I had a $10 boost I could use on my next purchase! It was a refreshing surprise. I was grateful it was just done and fixed, money refunded plus a discount for my troubles. I didn’t call or complain except for having sent an initial “trouble ticket” through the app. Easy!
I expended so little energy for a $10 return. I stayed in my LOA mindset. Instead of bitching about $14 I’d “lost,” I just moved on, staying in my peace. I knew I’d appreciate having the peace more. I also knew Square would have to make it right, that it was their screw up, not mine.
People think LOA is about manifesting the winning lotto ticket, earning a million dollars by magic, or finding a $100 bill on the ground. It doesn’t always have to be big and splashy. Start with the right mindset above all else. The rest will come.
What cool thing have you manifested lately? Let me know in the comments!
