Law of attraction success story: “I manifested a Kindle”

From the moment I heard there would be a raffle at my company Christmas party I was intrigued. It
was something they had never done in the 9 years I had worked there – or at least not on such a large
scale. Several awesome prizes were to be had, including an 8 person tent and a fit bit watch –
something my husband had his eye on. When I heard there would be a Kindle in the giveaway – well!
My mind immediately raced to all the amazing things I could do with it. Road trips would be greatly
improved for my 5 year old, for starters!
At this time I didn’t know anything about the law of attraction. The whole idea seemed strange – too
good to be true to my practical mind. However, as the sister of the talented Mollie Player, I felt it was
necessary (and as it just so happens, enjoyable) to support her by reading her books and blog. Her talent
is obvious, of course, but I am impressed by her honest desire to spread the message of the law of
attraction in order that others’ lives can also be transformed. I’m so grateful to her for this site! And so,
perhaps I picked up something in my casual reading of Mollie’s blog over the years. Because soon I
was doing all the right things. I imagined the Kindle was already mine. I told my friends and family I
wanted it. And I soon felt confident in the knowledge that it was mine – somehow I knew it was to be
so! So I waited the month or so before the party in happy anticipation. Not surprising, that day I heard
my raffle number called. Right after my husband won the fit bit watch.
As a Doubting Thomas maybe I needed to see the law at work before believing. I didn’t know any of
the “rules” but I applied them. And because it is a law, it must be obeyed. You can bet I have begun
researching all I can get my hands on on the subject and will continue to do so.

New Thought book: “How to Solve the Paradox of the Universal Laws of Attraction” by Cary David Richards



New Thought book: How to Solve the Paradox of the Universal Laws of Attraction: 8 Shortcuts to Using Coincidence and Sychronicity to Untangle the Mystery
New Thought author: Cary David Richards
New Thought book summary writer: Mollie Player

The unique appeal of this New Thought book:

Richards seems to believe that the law of attraction has been misrepresented by get-rich-quick schemers and, let’s face it, he has a point.

This New Thought book’s essence:

The Law of Attraction Puzzle teaches a few law of attraction basics, the main one being the importance of action in your pursuit of an improved life experience.

Notable quotes from this New Thought book:

  • “Action energizes and directs the ‘Law of Attraction.'”
  • “String theory (sometimes called the theory of everything) basically maintains that everything in the universe is made up of unimaginably small vibrating filaments (or strings) of energy.”
  • “It is becoming a scientifically proven fact that at the most fundamental level, how something vibrates determines what it is in our reality and that we are all vibrationaly connected with everything and everyone.”
  • “The “Law of Attraction” is not something you turn on or off. It is always there working for you (or sometimes it seems, against you.)”
  • “If you can, stop and reflect for a few minutes what you have been feeding your subconscious mind over the last few weeks, months, and years. Has it been powerful, positive images filled with love and respect for your fellow man? Affirmations about an abundant universe ready to grant your wants and desires? Or has it been negative, greedy, guilt-filled grumblings about how the other guy has all the wealth and doesn’t deserve it, ranting about how someone cut you off on the freeway, or quibbling about how some problem or another is your spouse’s fault? Be honest now!”
  • “Action is a form of affirmation.”
  • “I believe that it’s very hard to vibrate the things you desire into existence when you’re doing nothing.”
  • “Try believing that you’re not ready for a triathlon after you’ve seen yourself take the massive action of training everyday for six months.”

Law of attraction success story: “We got a raise”


Contributor: Allison Hodson

A welder by trade, my husband was recently promoted to a management position at the hardware store where we met. With the change came the promise of a raise, but after six months of waiting I was beginning to feel it was never going to happen.

A month ago, I discovered this blog and decided to try using the law of attraction in my life. However, I had no idea where to begin.

When I visited my sister this spring, she coached me through the first steps. As we sat in McDonalds one morning watching our kids play together, she asked me if there was one thing I could believe for right now  to use as practice–something small enough to have faith in, but big enough to know it worked. I told her I would like more money. She told me to be more specific, so I said, “I want my husband to get his raise.”

“That’s it,” she said. “That’s what we’ll affirm.” Then she made a few statements (prayers, if you will) and I agreed.

Throughout the following week, I repeated our affirmations many times. I didn’t force it, or feel anxious. I just allowed God and Jesus (I am a Christian) to work on my behalf in the right time.

A week after that, the raise came through.

Law of attraction success story: Jeannette Maw: “My $5,000 bill transformed into $10,000 in income”


Contributor: Law of attraction coach Jeannette Maw of the fabulous and famous Good Vibe Blog. Jeannette Maw is the law of attraction party host at Good Vibe U and co-founder of Good Vibe Astrology. Subscribe to her Good Vibe newsletter here. Connect on Google+.

One day I had to write a big check for professional services totaling five thousand dollars. I’m not used to spending money in big chunks like that, and it wasn’t an expenditure that was bringing me tremendous joy, but there was no avoiding it.

When I caught myself doing the math in my head and thinking that I would have $5,000 less in my account, I decided to give Universe a different instruction.

I intended that spending this money would make me money. That some how some way this money would come back to me multiplied.

That was kind of like intending that paying a big doctor’s bill would somehow magically reappear even bigger in my bank account. Kind of ridiculous, but I’m not afraid of magical money, and I know Universe can do way crazier things than this.

Before I mailed the check I gave it a big kiss (instead of resenting it – big vibrational difference) and asked it to do lovely things in the world. Then I placed it next to my smoky quartz crystal for a few hours, asking the crystal to help this money make us more money. (I’ve heard quartz crystals can be all sorts of magic.)

Off went the check in the mail that day. And get this – about a week later my ex-boyfriend wrote me a check for exactly five thousand dollars, as a show of support because he knew the situation was likely to get more expensive. (Someone had estimated I’d be out $50k before this gig was over.)

So that was cool. And shortly after that I learned that I would be reimbursed by my insurance company for almost the full five thousand. And that they’d cover future expenses. woot!

So my money has doubled already and I don’t even think the magic is over yet.

New Thought book: “Burn, Baby, Burn” by Evan Griffith


New Thought book: Burn, Baby, Burn: Spark the Creative Spirit Within
New Thought author: Evan Griffith
New Thought book summary writer: Mollie Player

This New Thought book’s particular appeal:

Evan Griffith is a super fun dude. His writing style is funky, spunky and cool. If any book can give you the emotional impetus to get on with your creative pursuits, this one can.

This New Thought book’s essence:

Burn, Baby, Burn is a manifest on creativity. It has three main parts: Be clear (often); express love energy (daily); renew (as needed).

My favorite quotes from this New Thought book:

  • “Expressing love energy is the secret sauce of human existence.”
  • “Forget vision. Forget purpose. Forget renewal. Forget working hard or working smart. Forget etiquette. Forget firm handshakes. Forget ten thousand cultural expectations. If you were to only express love energy throughout your days the world would curl itself at your feet and purr for you. The world would never stop showing you its delights. Expressing love energy is the secret sauce of human existence.”
  • “You can feel when love energy is waning. Something about the service or the product or the place starts to feel dingy.”

Law of attraction success story: “I found $900 on the ground”


A year ago, before Christmas, my husband and I had a meeting. We sat down at the kitchen table and talked about how much money was in our bank account currently and how much we wanted to spend during the holiday season. Our budget included a trip for my husband and our two boys.

We did the math and said, “Okay, at the end of the holidays we will have X amount in our bank account.” It was an intention as well as a promise.

December came. Chris left with the boys, and our two girls and I wanted to do a few special things while they were away. For a day or so I asked myself if this would be wise as I may end up overspending. But it felt right, so I went with it.

We got massages and manicures and bought a few other things, and by the time we were done I realized we had, in fact, spent too much. We had gone over budget by about $900.

Realizing this, I did not freak out. Instead, I told myself that what we’d spent felt right to me and everything would work out somehow.

A few days later, my last day of vacation before returning to work, I was driving to a friend’s house when I got terribly lost. For the life of me, I couldn’t make a correct turn. Finally, I decided to pull into a cul-de-sac and consult my GPS. As I did so, I noticed something strange: On the street, there was a small pile of papers.

As I neared it, I looked closer. Those weren’t just any papers, I realized. It was a pile of money.

I got out of the car and picked it up. Then I counted it. The amount was $900 exactly.

Free New Thought ebook: “Happiness is the Truth”

Free ebook announcement!

From time to time, I announce an ebook giveaway on this site. These are all New Thought books that the authors have agreed to be made available for free, at least for a period of time. Just email me at to request your PDF copy.

Happiness is the Truth: A Spiritual Manifesto is a basic primer on New Thought spirituality; however, it is anything but a rule book. The chapters, each of which explains one tenet of this philosophy, include: “Spirituality is good,” “Life is a game,” “There are no rules,” “Absolutes are fine. Certainty is not,” “People are holy,” “We have power,” and, finally, “Happiness is the truth.”

Here is an excerpt:

“Suffice it to say that I believe in love, and I believe in eternity, and I believe in spirits and in the big mystery that is what we call God. And I believe that in the end, it is not prayer that makes us holy, or good deeds, or any particular philosophy. I believe that the purpose of life and the way to be holy is this:

“You do what makes you happy.”

Readers of Eckhart Tolle understand the importance of appreciating the present moment–paying attention as much as possible to the glorious Now and leaving the past behind us. For a long time, though, I was stumped by something: How am I supposed to live in the present and also allow myself to feel the desires that lead to conscious creation? 

What about visualization? What about mantras? What about figuring out what I don’t want so that I can decide what I do want to welcome into my life? 

Then the other day, my good friend (and angel channel) Leta Hamilton talked to me about the importance of acceptance.

“Life is perfect, just as it is,” she said. “You don’t have to want a single new thing to be happy.”

And I knew it was true, because she has four young children and is still the happiest person I know.

So, the following day, I took her advice. I started a new spiritual practice: that of accepting everything that came.

“Bring it on, Universe,” I said. “Do your worst. I’m going to learn to love what is if it kills me.”

And it was the greatest experience. That day I happened to spend most of the sunny afternoon at a park with my two wonderful children. Then that evening I was treated to a massage and a facial. I truly enjoyed these experiences in a way I have rarely done before, without fault-finding and overly critical thinking and too-high expectations.

It was wonderful.

I’m pretty sure the Universe wanted me to have an especially good first try at all this acceptance stuff, because over the following few days things got back to normal. Kids crying till my ears hurt, poopy diapers . . . you get the idea.

But I continued my new-found spiritual practice, and what I noticed right away was that none of the bad stuff seemed all that bad anymore. Because they weren’t that bad. They were the challenges of life.

There’s an amazing quote in The Power of Now (by Eckhart Tolle) about  whether or not we as conscious creators should accept that bad stuff happens.

“Is suffering really necessary? Yes and no. If you had not suffered as you have, there would be no depth to you as a human being, no humility, no compassion. You would not be reading this now. Suffering cracks open the shell of ego, and then comes a point when it has served its purpose. Suffering is necessary until you realize it is unnecessary.”

Beautiful, isn’t it? Sometimes we law of attraction believers get down on ourselves for not having everything we want, not outwardly appearing to be as successful as others we know. As much as I believe in and practice visualization, affirmations and meditating on what I desire, and pray to the angels and seek enlightenment and read books and discuss spiritual matters for hours on end . . . I’m remembering through it all that I am in a process. I am experiencing everything–“good” and “bad”–for a reason.

Truly, it is all perfect.

And here’s the really funny part (that you may have guessed already): Ever since my revelation on acceptance, things are flowing better for me, too. What I need and want comes to me in a natural way, at the right time–often before I consciously know I need it.

If you are a dissatisfied spiritual person, someone who wants to become a more positive thinker right now, I encourage you to embrace this paradox.

Accept first. Then work on your deliberate creation.
