Universe Can Do the Impossible (While You Sleep)

Who’s in the mood for a fun law of attraction success story?

This one comes from Sabeen and made me laugh out loud with delight at her willingness to ask the ‘impossible’ and Universe’s ability to deliver it.

Here’s Sabeen:
Universe Delivers Magic When You Let It

I’m having a new shower installed in my bathroom. Yesterday, the contractor worked on it all day and was gone by the time I got home from work.

I came home tired and stressed (perfect vibration for a negative manifestation, not to mention I have vibrational kinks anyway about things going wrong with home renovation projects).

When I walked into the bathroom, what were supposed to be bright white tiles in the shower were dull grey tiles.

This is not what I had picked out and not what I wanted! I was upset and disappointed.

Somehow the wrong tiles had been installed and now it would be difficult to do anything about it because the contractor had spent a day installing them and it was a done deal.

Suffice it to say I was not a happy camper.

I debated calling the contractor that night but I didn’t have it in me to have a difficult conversation so I decided to wait until morning, go in to work late and have a discussion with the contractor. Not that it would matter because the shower had already been installed.

Here’s where the story gets interesting …

I decided there was nothing to be done until morning so I would try not to think about the mistake.

Before going to bed, I had a thought that I wanted this to resolve easily and half-jokingly asked the Universe to magically turn the tiles white during the night.

This morning, I went into the bathroom and the tiles were still grey.

But … I noticed the side of one of the tiles looked like it was peeling off.

That’s when I realized that the tiles were indeed the bright white tiles I had wanted all along – they were just covered in a thin film of grey plastic which had started peeling off during the night.

Wow, that really hit me over the head! Nothing had gone wrong after all. Things were exactly how I wanted them to be.

The only “problem” had been that I wasn’t seeing what was really there because I had been looking through a grey filter that I hadn’t realized was there. All I needed to do to see what was truly there was to peel off the layer that was in the way – but even better than that, all I really had to do was let the Universe peel it off for me when I wasn’t looking. 🙂

Like I said, it was an awesome epiphany for me and that Voice inside told me that this principle applies to absolutely everything.

It’s always ok, it’s always exactly how you want it, you just can’t see it while you’re looking at it through the grey cover of worry, disappointment, fear etc.

So true, Sabeen! And such a perfect example of it. 

My takeaway from this story is that Universe knows how to give us what we want. All we have to do is let go the contrary vibes and get out of the way.

Congrats on getting your white tiles with no extra fuss, and thanks for sharing your fun story with us, Sabeen!

    I’m chiming in late because I’ve been off line for a while, but thank you all for great response to my story! It was a very eye-opening experience for me and I’m happy it resonated with others as well.

  • Sue says:

    I am new to all of this. I have struggled a long time trying to lose weight. I am not sure I get how this works.
    If I want to lose I have to accept myself at the weight I am?
    How do I go about this?

    • Jeannette says:

      That’s one approach that could shift things, Sue. Whatever we want, finding a way to feel NOW how we would feel THEN is the basic key. So if we can feel happy with our bodies that is a powerful way to kickstart the shift.
      Maybe this Abe quote might help:
      “The key to bringing your body to a new place is to see it differently from the way it is. It is necessary that you focus upon the body that is coming and distract yourself from the negative aspects of your current physical body, for as long as you are seeing your body as it is, you are contradicting the vibration of the idea of a slender body. You cannot create a new reality while looking at your current reality.”

    This is a great story! I was just sitting here thinking to myself how it seems so much harder things are when you’re resisting….but I struggle with resisting my resisting too 🙂 I need to focus more on peeling the grey film off!

      For following the path of goodness, going with the flow or against is irrelevant. One should not be afraid at all while following the path of goodness.

        I am posting again, this time with my name since it got missed out previously; sorry folks.

    Congratulations Sabeen
    Love and regards

  • A very Easy World story! Love, love, love it!

  • Jeannette says:

    I agree, C. One of the things I’ll be remembering about this story is that even when it seems like all is lost, Universe has a solution up its sleeve that’s better than I ever would have dreamed.
    But thanks to Sabeen’s example, I intend to become an even better (Karen – ha – there it is again!) dreamer/vibrational offerer.

  • C. says:

    This story is awesome and gives me huge inspiration!

  • Jeannette says:

    Ooh, I like affirmation/story element about how this is a shortcut, Anonymous! Nice one.
    Makes good LOA sense, too, when we understand the role of contrast.
    You know, I’ve got a draft post in my mind about how manifesting what we want is a tricky thing when we’re living in resistance to what is. I realized I was doing that recently myself, so I know how easy it is to do.
    It reminds me of Abe’s suggestion about how the sweet spot is to love what is while looking forward to what’s next.
    But we also know that WHATEVER gives you hope and relief is the right direction. Sending good thoughts your way for evidence that this shortcut is coming together very swiftly indeed.

    • anonymous says:

      Thank you Jeannette! 🙂 Your blog is one of my favourite sources for LOA teachings. I love the simplicity of your posts, teaching just to feel good, reach for relief, without making it seem too complicated.
      And this story came at just the right time with me, because shortly before I was very frustrated about some things.

    • Laura says:

      Wow! You have no idea how relevant this is to my life (well, ours as a family) right now. We are looking to emigrating, but are not sure where to. So we are sort of up in the clouds about it. But that is not the problem, the problem is why we want to leave our home country! The more we stress about the reasons the more it seems that we will never find a new home! Sort of resisting what is I guess. So I have a question for you – how do I get to grips with an escalating crime rate. I try not to think about it, but live behind lock and key. I am continually having to keep my eye out for uninvited “guests”. Quite difficult to accept what is, but I know it can be done, I am just too deep in it right now to see a solution. That is why I have you beautiful souls *smiling lovingly* You inspire me and remind me and give me the swift kick that I need:-)

      • Sandeep says:

        Treat the whole universe as your country; it seems right now, you need a new place to suit your present level of liking for happiness, peace, and wealth, which are lacking in your so-called home country. Some people like the chaos – so they are in that country. For peace-loving, happiness-loving, goodness-loving people like you, there is another country waiting for you and calling you. Which one is that country? If you can find Angel Jeannette, you can find your chosen country too.
        Best wishes
        Love and regards

    This story really made me feel better. My overall life situation currently feels so far from my ideal. I spend a lot of time visualising and dreaming about my ideal life and all the things I want…how it will feel, look, sound, taste, etc. I can get frustrated because I feel like I should be planning or taking more action that could lead me to what I want. Whenever I try though, it feels off or I just feel overwhelmed and uninspired. Often I feel like where I am is really off of my true path, and I have to remind myself that where I am is preparing me for all the thing I want and is giving me time to clarify my desires. I even tell myself that though it might not look like it, being where I am is actually a shortcut to where I want to be! I’m skipping the long road, taking the short (but intense) path and not to worry because everything is going to turn around and it will be delightful, even dramatic, when it does. Maybe I’m doing something wrong by so much emphasis on the future, but it feels good and gives me hope and relief.

  • Jeannette says:

    You’re right – I totally missed that part, Karen! ha!
    Gotta love how those words keep showing up. 🙂

  • Karen says:

    There it is again….”even better….” Love those words!
