Law of Attraction in Action

As I packed for my workshop in Toronto a day earlier than normal (Mario calls me ‘Last Minute Lucy’), I realized, at 10:00 at night — two days before my flight –that my passport had expired.

Oh no! Now what was I going to do?

I stopped everything (because what’s the point of finishing packing if I can’t get through customs, right?) and went online to see what I could do.

Lo and behold, if I traveled within the next two weeks and had proof (which I did), I could go to to the Department of State’s Boston office because they have the authority to prepare Passports on site.


They also allowed me to use their 24-hour appointment scheduling service to schedule my appointment. So I did. The next available appointment was 8:30 the next morning.

Woo Hoo!

I had all the documentation I needed, except I didn’t have any passport photos. I called CVS and Walgreens and their photo departments closed at 10pm. I was too late. I looked online for a 24-hour passport photo service, with no luck.

I happen to be extremely resourceful, so I determined that if I left early enough in the morning, I could get my photos down the street from where I needed to go, just prior to my appointment.

Yes! That’s the answer.

I live an hour outside of Boston and if I left at 7:30am — with rush hour traffic — I wouldn’t arrive before 10am, so I set my alarm for 5:30am to leave for 6:00am. I arrived in Boston at 7:30am, an hour before my appointment.

Researching online the night before, I found the closest CVS to the passport office, which was just three blocks away. I found a parking garage immediately in front of the building, and once in the garage, found the last remaining space on the first level.


I leisurely walked to the CVS, chatted lightheartedly with the photo gal, and within 15 minutes I was walking toward the passport office. On the way, I passed an Au Bon Pain restaurant, ordered a coffee and used the restroom.

Thank goodness, or my bladder would have burst!

I completed my walk and was half an hour early, so I stood outside to finish my coffee and respond to some emails on my Blackberry. At 8:15am I went through security and upstairs to the passport office.

The only thing I hadn’t prepared before coming was a renewal application.

Uh Oh!

But, no problem. They had them there for me to fill out. I didn’t even lose my place in line. I had everything they needed and the girl told me I could come back at 4pm to pick up my passport.

I wasn’t going to drive back in rush hour traffic, and I wasn’t going to stay in the city and kill time, given I had too much to do. However, I was flying out of Boston airport at noon the next day, so I had plenty of time to show up in the morning and pick it up then.

Ok Cool, I can do that.

I was all finished by 8:45am. I walked back to the parking garage, and remembered I had the girl at CVS validate my pass, so I received an hour of parking for free!


On the way home there wasn’t any traffic and I arrived at my office at the same time I do any other day (I was just short a few hours of sleep is all).

How awesome is that?!

The next day I woke up at 5:30am again to be on the road for 6:30am because when I went home the day before at 9am the traffic was still backed up for 15 miles inbound to Boston. If I had left my house at 9am for my flight at noon, I might not have made it.

I arrived in Boston at 8:30am — as soon as the office opened their doors. I found a metered spot directly in front of the building and was in and out in less than five minutes.

You might be thinking two things right now:

  1. That girl has incredible luck, and/or…
  2. What does this have to do with me manifesting my man?

First I want to explain that it’s not about luck, it’s about:

  • Your Beliefs
  • Your Thoughts, and
  • Your Feelings

I was able to have an easy time of it because I didn’t allow myself to be worked up about the situation. I believed that everything would work out in my favor. I wasn’t attached to the outcome. I knew that everything would be okay no matter what happened. I also always think that everything happens for a reason, so I don’t judge what’s going on. I’m a master of going with the flow (most of the time).

I notice when I don’t go with the flow and I try to control the outcome, matters tend to be more fraught with problems, and things don’t go my way as comfortably.

How this applies to you manifesting your man is for you to notice:

  • How do you feel when you think about dating, relationships and the man you’re supposed to be with? Are you excited, eager and hopeful? Or are you disgusted, discouraged and feel hopeless?
  • What are your beliefs about relationships? Do you believe all men cannot be trusted and they cheat? Do you think true love is baloney and doesn’t really exist?
  • What do you believe about yourself? Do you think that you don’t deserve for anyone to love you because you’re so ___________? Do you feel unworthy of experiencing love in your life, because if you were, you’d have it already?
  • What type of thoughts do you have on a predominant basis, throughout the day? Are you thinking of all the fun things you can do with your man when he shows up, and how nice it will be to introduce him to your friends and your family, or how wonderful he is to you because he meets all your emotional and physical needs and desires? Or, do you complain all the time about how miserable life is, and say to yourself, “Love is just a joke – nobody is really happy, nobody could possibly love me. I may as well keep eating, or let myself go, because there isn’t anyone who wants me anyway.

Can you feel the difference between each comparison made above? Which girl are you? Trust me, I used to be the second girl. I can relate to feeling disgusted, discouraged, hopeless and all alone.

What can you do today to move closer to the first person in the examples above who feels excited, eager and hopeful? I recommend you do the following exercise for just 10 short days and see if you notice a difference in how your life goes during this experiment:

  1. Get yourself a beautiful journal that will be used just for this exercise.
  2. Immediately upon waking, jot down one thing you are grateful for.
  3. At breakfast, make a few notes about how you would like your day to go.
  4. At lunch, write down something that was awesome so far, or if something awful happened, put that down, but then determine a new way to look at it that feels better to you.
  5. In the evening, before bed, find a minimum of one positive thing to record about yourself. Then say “Good Night Honey, I Love You.” You say it to yourself, until your man shows up for you — then you will say it to him. These are the things you want to take with you into your dream state.

Be willing to do this exercise for a minimum of ten days. You are welcome to do it as long as it feels comfortable to you, but 10 days should be the minimum. Mark the start and stop dates on your calendar and spend the 11th day recording your thoughts and feelings about this experience. See if elements in your life are significantly different.

Focusing your mind in such a way will begin to shift the results you experience in your life. They will become more positive and things will begin to happen more in your favor, as you observed of me with my passport. I experienced a potentially negative situation, but didn’t allow it to become negative for me; I was able to turn it around into a funny story, with a positive result.

You have the ability to do the same thing with your entire life, if you’re willing. The concepts are simple. Implementing them is simple. We are the only ones who make it hard, by how we choose to perceive everything that happens to us.

Are you ready to make your life easy? The power is within you — if you are willing to make simple changes in your daily routine — and stick with them on a consistent basis. What have you got to lose, except some negative thoughts? Why not give it a try? You just might fall in love with the results.
