Unexpected cheques in the post! July 23, 2009

Don’t you just love them!!!

You’ve come to the end of your bank account, the last few pennies have been dug out from the back of the sofa and you’ve raided the kids money boxes.

But…they are still bills to be paid and food to be bought…what are you going to do???

It’s time to turn to the old Law of Attraction ‘Unexpected Cheque’ routine.

The idea is, that you expect to receive a cheque in the post. You don’t need to know where the cheque is coming from, you just need to believe that you WILL get one.

You’ve got to be careful with this one though. Do you really want great Aunt Ethel dropping dead just so you can a payout from her will? Ok…maybe you do, but aside from old ladies passing away, there are other ways of getting unexpected cheques.

Let me give you an example: Last week I picked up the post, and sandwiched between the usual demands for money was an interesting envelope from America.

Inside was a cheque for $101 from Site build it. Now, I won’t go on about Site build it but they are pretty brilliant, in fact it’s where I’m building my other website.

The $101 was comission for ‘selling’ the site build it system. In fact we hadn’t actually ‘sold’ anything. It had come from people stumbling across my site and using a link that I have to buy the site build it system. Great!! We had made around £64 for doing nowt!

A few days before that we had received £111 from some other commission from a shopping cart software that we used to use for BeingaMillionaire. Again, we done nothing and yet here we are with almost £200 in our bank account.

I’m now thinking…’What would happen if I actually did something about this, there would be more cheques in the post!!’

So here’s my first attempt at a bit of promotion. By the way, this is a really REALLY great site, especially if like me, you have no idea how to build a website.


It’s been a funny old week! March 19, 2009

It’s been a bit of a stressful week, in fact it’s really tested my positive thinking attitude.

I won’t bore you with the details but briefly my other half had a court summons for withholding driver information after being caught speeding. He didn’t withhold the information, by the way, he just couldn’t prove that he’d sent it and the police were saying that they had never received it.

So he had to appear in court on Tuesday and I went along as a witness as it me who had posted his driver information to the Police.

So along we went, happy and safe in the knowledge that we had done everything we could to ensure that the response letter had been returned and how could anyone possibly find us guilty when we are quite obviously good, law abiding citizens!!!

Three hours later other half exited the court with 6 points on his licence and a £500 fine! I was at a loss as to how this could have happened! We told our side of the story, yet we were basically being accused of lying. It was absurd!!!

I practice the Law of Attraction every day, yet somehow I had attracted this horrible situation to myself?

Once home I began pondering how this had happened when oldest son reminded me that he needed his Passport for school as he’s off to France with them on Sunday.

I’ve recently implemented a new filing system for all the vast amount of paperwork that we as a family produce, so I felt very proud and organised as I instantly lay my hands on his passport. As I handed it over he flicked to the back and announced…’It’s out of date!’…..’Pardon’ I said……’It’s expired’ Eldest replied and thrust it back into my hands.

Now, if I had been animated, my eyeballs would have stood out on stalks at that point. Instead I went cold and excused myself for a good cry in the downstairs loo!

After pulling myself together, I telephoned the Passport hotline where I spoke with a young Irish gentleman who was incredibly helpful and efficient.

He got me an appointment at the nearest passport office, one and a half hours away, for the very next day. I now had less than 24hours to get photos taken, signed and form completed. I suddenly turned into Jack Baur as we raced around Coventry collecting all the necessary information.

Before I knew it the next day arrived and I was off on my day trip to Peterborough with youngest in tow. And do you know what? We had a really good day! It was sunny and everyone that dealt with us was smiley and efficient and happy. What a great experience and it wasn’t long before I was back home with a brand new passport.

That was yesterday and today is my Birthday!! Hurray!! I’ve had a great day being pampered by other half and getting fab gifts from all my lovely friends and family. I couldn’t be happier, because Law of Attraction aside…..Life sure is what you make it!


The Law of Attraction does work March 3, 2009

I wanted to share an excerpt from an email I had a few days ago from a lady who uses our DreamBuilder application.

“Just a quick line to let you know that just after I registered for the
“Dream Builder” I chose some pictures including one of an island with a beach and palm tree.

I have been wishing for a desperately needed holiday, but couldn’t afford it.
My sister has come into a bit of money from her father-in-law,
and booked a week in Jamaica, this March.
She asked me if I wanted to go, and offered to pay; I accepted gratefully.
Ususally I would be too proud to accept, or feel guilty, but this time I
didn’t, because I was the person that sorted out the probate papers which released his estate in 3 wks rather than 2 years.

That saying of what goes around comes around has never been so appropiate as in this case.”

I think that is such a wonderful story.

Take care in what you think about as it might just come true!
