Latex Gloves and The Law


This is another one of my simple stories about the law of attraction.  I use it to describe how easy it is to make things happen.  The short and simple explanation is…desire, let go, and watch what happens.

I was going through my cupboard looking for my disposable latex gloves.  I couldn’t find any and remembered that I wanted to get some but hadn’t yet.  I thought to myself, “Gosh, I need more latex gloves”.  I saw in my mind’s eye, a mound of latex gloves in my cupboard.

I went on with my evening.  The next morning, I was walking the dogs.  I decided to take a different road than I usually do.  I went up a small street and I wasn’t sure where it ended.

As I walked up the street, I noticed a large plastic bag sitting on the edge of driveway and the street.  It was 7am and it was Tuesday–garbage day.

As I got closer I looked into the bag and noticed it was full of disposable latex gloves.  I kept walking past the bag and thought to myself, “if I take the gloves from that spot, would it be stealing?”

I got to the end of the street and turned around, heading back toward the bag of gloves.  It was garbage day, they were on the edge of the driveway and the street so I made the decision to grab the gloves.  They were definitely there for me!!!  I figured some workmen must have left them and they would be thrown in the garbage anyway.

There!  I had the gloves I wanted and needed.  I had been wanting them the night before, but I let it go and went on with my night.  I didn’t NEED to run to the store and buy them right now.

This is a story I told one of my clients who is extremely suspicious of the principles of law of attraction.  Even he said, “wow, that’s pretty bizarre”.  His old response would have been,  “well that’s just a coincidence”!

The key is to want something without NEEDING it and when you aren’t  attached to getting it, it just shows up!  This is just a simple example but if we could apply it to the larger parts of life and what it is we want, life would flow with ease.

Once you start to notice how often we get what we think about, you will see how very powerful your thoughts are.

I love life. Life teaches. I love nature. Nature teaches. I never want to lessen the lesson. Let's journey together on this trail called life! I write this blog mostly to get the chatter out of my head! I've never really promoted it but a few people read the articles and find inspiration. It really is therapeutic, writing is like having a place to process the stuff that floats around on a regular basis! In the words of John Muir, the naturalist, this is how I feel: “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”
