Wouldn’t It Be Nice If…?
Nicole was thinking how nice it would be to attend a conference that she really wanted to go to.
Even though she knew it wasn’t likely to happen (for a variety of reasons), she let herself enjoy the thought of how cool it would be if someone paid her way to be there.
She enjoyed the fantasy of it for almost 20 minutes before she let it go and went back to her daily routine. (Not to make it happen, just because the thought was so delicious.)
Three hours later she had an email from the conference organizers asking if she’d be willing to be attend the two thousand dollar conference for free in exchange for spreading the word about the event. Which she was more than thrilled to do.

Beth was in the shower thinking how nice it would be to have a retirement account. She’d been healing around money recently, and even though she’d never had a retirement account before, and no reason to believe she ever would have one, she sure liked the thought of having retirement money set aside in her name …
… money that was set aside, just for her, that she could have fun investing.
She enjoyed that thought while she showered – of how cool it would be to have this kind of money set aside for herself.
A few days later she received word that her in-laws had to create a retirement account for her because of some regulations involving her husband’s family business. Voila – just like that – Beth had a retirement account in her name!

I was getting dressed the the other day thinking how nice it would be if I still had that FBI sweatshirt from Dave. It was my favorite sweatshirt of his when we were dating, but he made me give it back after we stopped seeing each other about 15 years ago. It was my third all time favorite sweatshirt. So soft, and comfortable, and roomy. I really really liked it.
As I stood in the closet contemplating options, I thought how nice it would be to wear that sweatshirt again.
I had one the same color from Utah State, but it wasn’t as comfy as I like. I reached up, though, thinking, “Wouldn’t it be cool if this was the FBI sweatshirt instead?”
Even as I reached for it, I knew it was the USU shirt, but I pulled it down anyway. Only to find buried underneath it was Dave’s FBI sweatshirt. woo hoo!!
There’s cool manifesting magic in this effortless little thought. I first learned it from Abraham, and I think it’s the ease and the non-attachment that makes it so swift to manifest.

Now it’s your turn to experience the power of “Wouldn’t it be nice if …?”
Finish the thought however you like, enjoy the idea of it for a fun minute or two, and then forget about it. Pretty simple.
Feel free to post your “wouldn’t it be nice” thought or even your story in the comments. Have fun withit!
