Fries From McDonald's
Here I am locked in the office until the carpets dry from cleaning they just got.
I could (actually – did) sprint across wet rugs on tippy toes into the kitchen for chocolate, but I’m supposed to stay put till they dry.
Good Newsers already know the cleaning guy who showed up to do the job was hot hot hot! Not only handsome, but also young and friendly and built like we like ’em, if you know what I mean.
So it was a very nice carpet cleaning experience.
Not at all like the last time.
I actually reported the last guy to the Better Business Bureau. (First time I ever did that – but trust me, it felt good.)
The difference between last time and this one? LOA-ignorants (hm, is there a nicer word for non-LOA savvy folks?) .. anyway, those who DON’T read this blog would likely say the difference was in the service provider – but we know better.
The difference was my vibe, of course.
Last time a foster dog peed in the upstairs hallway (ugh, Jeannette, don’t reactivate THAT vibe!) – anyway, uhh, let’s just say there was good reason to call in an expert pronto. My regular carpet guy Ned (all animal foster moms have carpet guys on speed dial, right?) books out weeks in advance, so I turned to the yellow pages for immediate help.
When I had to call a stranger, my “love my carpet guy” vibe was apparently not in play. Thinking back, it’s easy to see that my “I don’t trust carpet guys” vibe was at work. (Which arose from past experience with cleaners before God sent me Ned.)
Since the guy can only answer the vibration I’m offering, it technically wasn’t his fault. (Although that’s not the story version BBB got.)
Anyway, I love love love Ned, so when Joe threw up eight times (it’s hopeless, apparently I’m determined to vibrate “rug stains”) on the front room carpet, I happily waited for Ned to come out.
But Ned has a broken foot, so he had to send Cody.
(Let me just reactivate “hot service guy” vibe and “beautifully clean carpets” vibe by telling you how hot this guy was and what a great job he did on these carpets! woo hoo!)
I knew whoever Ned sent would be well-trained, so my “love my carpet guy” vibe held fast for the visit from Cody.
What does any of this have to do with fries from McDonald’s, you may be wondering?
That’s the analogy I’ve been offering clients lately about how to make sure your vibe is lined up nice and solid.
When you feel your request as solidly confident as you feel when standing at the counter ordering fries from McDonald’s (or latte from Starbucks, if that works better), you’re golden.
It’s that level of pure confidence (like when ordering fries from McDonald’s) that REQUIRES Universe to deliver. You know fries are coming. You know it so solidly you don’t even think about it!
You don’t worry fries might not show up. You don’t secretly doubt your fry-worthiness. You don’t envy others for their fries.
You KNOW fries are coming. You’re not counting off the seconds noting they’re still not here, still not here, where could they be, what did I do wrong that they’re not here? Those guys have theirs – where are mine? What will people think that I’m still standing here with no fries? Maybe I’m not destined to have fries; maybe there’s a lesson to be learned in this lifetime going without fries.
You don’t do any of that!
You know fries are coming.
That’s my vibe when Ned’s on the job: I know my carpets are getting a first class cleaning. I feel it solidly and confidently. Zero doubt. No worries.
If I felt that same confidence with any carpet cleaner, well … I wouldn’t be waiting two weeks for Ned.
(Truth be told, it was only one week and Ned did offer to make an emergency visit. But I hate to trouble him, especially with a broken foot and all.)
My entire point being that once you recognize where you’re wavering in your confidence, that’s your opportunity to shift your energy.
KNOW you will get your perfect job. Be confident Mr. Right is making his way to you. Solidly feel the pleasant anticipation of whatever you’re manifesting. Confident. Solid. Maybe even with a touch “of course”-ness about it.
Universe can’t resist you when you’re flowing that one. 😉
