      Call it law of attraction, belief in one’s self, persistence, tenacity, The universe aligning with our heart’s desires, whatever. But I am astounded how this stuff works!

      When I made the decision to rekindle my chocolate business I took steps. I listened to the podcasts on this site, I wrote a business plan, I put together a vision board. All of a sudden it’s as if the heavens opened up and took me under their wing.

      I won’t go into detail all that has happened but this morning was the topper of all. I have been mulling over buying some new equipment to replace the old. It’s expensive. That’s hard for me to do. But last week I called the manufacturer and made the decision. I would buy the equipment at the end of the month.

      This morning I opened my e-mail. There was a promotional offer from the manufacturer of my equipment. I’ve never received an e-mail from these people. I called. I was so excited about this that the young man on the other end of the phone started laughing and said, “well I’m going to make you even more excited. I’m going to throw in a lid for the machine and whatever else I can get in the box. And, also, I’m going to save you $100 on shipping.” I was ecstatic! My total savings is roughly $500 on something I was going to buy in the first place!

      I’d love to hear some more stories from other members. Please share how you have benefited from this law of attraction business!

      Thanks for listening
      Cynthia

        • I am definitely a strong believer in the law of attraction. Sometimes I tend to fall off the wagon, so to speak, about things that I know to be true...lifes a process. Lately I have been trying to stay really focused on my intentions.
          I really believe that this is why Saturday I stumbled upon this site in the first place.  

          I have been doing a lot of meditation lately and placing my intentions on inspiration and guidance.
          Well, Saturday while I was on another site Fab 40 and Beyond’s ad was blinking away on the side of my profile so I clicked on it and here I am.
          I have been hooked ever since! I have gotten so much positive feedback and inspiration from different women here.
          My life has always been that way as well and so I try to be careful what I wish for because I know I will eventually get it.
          What you put out into the universe comes back to you.
          That said, always be ready when what you’ve asked for is presented to you.

        • So true Annie...lol! At the risk of being in bad karma that was so funny.  I can’t believe she said that to you.  Well, let’s just say she must have been a really bad day and leave it  at that...lol.
          Trying to maintain your awareness is something you have to cultivate on a daily basis...

        • Hi joyfully——
          I am speaking in general about the law of attraction.
          Why are you afraid to put it into practice if it is what you believe to be true?
          It is scary trying to decide whether to jump into a new venture or not. But you know that once you really focus your intention toward whatever it is you want the rest will fall in line.
          Taking the class may lead you to meeting someone who offers you a job that fits with what you are trying to accomplish. That job may provide tuition reimbursement etc...

          Like I said, it’s scary sometimes. I am sort of in the same boat you are in right now.  I am in transition and trying to figure everything out.
          Try to stay focused on your intention and work toward your goal.

        • Wise words, almostfive0, I like what you said about intention. And wise decision making joyful. It’s true that we need to be ready for the results when we set the intention and express how we want our life to play out. It is scary sometimes. Gosh, I’ve been afraid so long I’m almost embarrassed to admit it. But something just happened. It feels right in my heart so I guess it is.

          I believe it will also happen for you, I want it to.

          Best
          Cynthia

        • Chocolatier:
          If you are jazzed about the Law of Attraction...have you read John Assaraf’s new book called “The Answer“? I have recently joined John Assarf and Murray Smiths company OneCoach, where you learn all the tenants of Assaraf’s Mindset, Marketing for Success and the Law of Attraction.  Yes, it is delivered in a very Universal and somewhat non-Christian format...somewhat New Age...but as a Christian, I know of whom Mr. Assaraf is speaking when he speaks of the Universe.  Many people of faith turn away from these teachings because it is New Age...but much of what they speak of is based on scripture and if you are knowledgeable in it you will see it.  But I digress...if you would like to add more to your present success with the Law of Attraction, read Mr. Assaraf’s new book and check out the OneCoach web site.  I have been amazed at the growth I have experienced in just four short weeks and the exponential growth I have seen in my business since learning about mindset and receiving help from the OneCoach team.  

          It is true you WILL attract the positive if you are living in the positive...these things will come without effort...easily...your success is truly in your subconscious mind.  I would love to see your Vision Board.  Take a picture of it and post it here at Fab 40.  I think I will start a thread for this very thing, along with the post that I wrote last year on Vision Boards.  They really do work!

        • Morning ladies...I agree shepherdess.
          People often close their minds when they here about cultivating your conciousness, awarness, meditation, etc...

          Annie,
          Thank you. Being spiritual has nothing to do with religion and it’s not about praying to a certain diety which is fine also.
          There are many universal laws and attraction is one of them. I think that most religions are based on these laws.
          We are all part of the source and to this source we will return eventually.  

          Joyfully,
          Part of our mission here is to remember what we came here to do. You are on your right path.  You have a passion for life and guiding it to the earth in it’s human form. Always try to find the lessons in your experiences.

        • The Vision Boards thread is up...share your Vision Board there.  I look forward to seeing all kinds of Visions from all the talented, gifted and accomplished women we have in our membership!  

          Remember this Vision Board is for YOU...there is no right way or wrong way of doing it...really...it is just a way to get your vision, your dreams and desires out of your brain and on to paper so you can see them everyday.  You will NOT be graded, ranked or critisized for your Vision Board...so what’s stopping you?!  Vision Boards are Affirming!

        • Thank you, shepherdess for your post, your book suggestion and your new thread! Later on today after I take my grandaughter home I’ll post my vision board.

          No problem for me with the new age style of the book. I grew up in Southern California so the culture around me growing up was very open minded. I like it all!  

          I’m really looking forward to seeing the vision boards!
          Thanks again

          What we argue for we get to keep..
          (be careful what you argue for)  wink wink..  

          What falls from our lips..
          Goes into our  hands..

          What we speak about comes about!

          This world is full of energy

          seeking a place to be..

          provide the right energy and you attract

          the same..

          the beginning of time.

        • Reading all of the posts here are so inspiring.
          When I lived in California I worked for the Dept. of Social Services. I hated my job. It was the type of place that inspired Sunday evening dread!
          After my oldest son died, I knew that I could not work there anymore. But I did not know what I wanted to do. Except bake cookies.
          I used to frequent a local restaurant around the corner from my office called Gails. They had the worst cookies! Before I told them how bad the cookies were, I asked who baked them. Luckily they said they came from Costco. I then told them I could do better. The next week, I brought them a test batch to hand out to customers as a treat. Then I waited. A few days later I had my first order and I was off to the races!
          I took a leave of absence and baked full time for them. It got to the point that I could hardly keep up and I would have cookies on every counter and table in the house!
          But my husband and I decided to move to Louisiana and my little business took a back seat to the move.
          Now, I’m here in Louisiana and I’m not working full time. I don’t know alot of people and I’m kind of lost. But reading what you ladies have written has inspired me to get my business started again. I’m going to name it and claim it and somehow make this happen.
          But first I’m going to make a vision board! I can’t wait!
          Thank you, ladies.....
          Ingrid

        • What a great story Ingrid.
          I swear this site is amazing. I’m in transition in my life as well and have been meditating daily. My intention while meditating before finding this site had been on finding inspiration, motivation and guidance to help me along my path.
          Through this website I have read so many inspiring stories it is just overwhelming...
          You think Yana sprinkled crack on this site or something! I don’t know but I think I’m hooked!
          peace.

        • I am so glad I found this group! The mindset here is contagious. I am one of those people who can be very positive, but being surrounded by negative and indifferent all the time really takes its toll.
          I really feel like my business is a calling. I am as passionate about it as I am about my family, and sometimes I feel that is wrong.
          I would love to sit and share my soul, my experiences, my dreams, but my responsibilities are calling (loudly! LOL)
          Balance is my biggest challenge. Keeping all the balls in the air...
          I will write more later, and can’t wait to check out the vision board thread!

          Sharing Hope,

          Dee Dee

        • Its a Quantum Physics theory.  Basically in Quantum Physics you in your mind and on paper create your future and your future self, or the universe and or God insures you have it with the power of prayer.

          Its like thinking of the perfect pair of shoes for a dress or wearing a certain style and it comes out that next season exactly and or better than you immagined.

          I have always unknowingly used this my entire life.  I make a to do list and write down everything I need to do, everything I need, everything I want for others, and I even draw up ideas as they come to me.. Like one cute idea I had for my shedding cat... I called it a Nitty for my kitty... basically a hair net for my cat to wear.  I should patten it.  The things I needed came to fruition and and some ideas like my Nitty for my Kitty is still sitting on the shelf in my ideas folder.  And did you know every idea you have millions of people think of and only a few will impliment it.  Ive had Ideas that I didnt and couldnt act on and Ive seen others dream them up too and made them real.

          Wish upon a star.. dream... pray.... create....and take the steps to make your dreams come true... No one will understand but you.

          Somehow, the universe, your future self, I believe its God that helps you.  It will happen.

        • I liked Choclatier’s story. I also agree with the ‘law of attraction‘.

          almostfive0 :
          ‘I'm in transition in my life as well and have been meditating daily. My intention while meditating before finding this site had been on finding inspiration, motivation and guidance to help me along my path.’

          I am new to this site, less than a week, but had also been meditating,visualising etc...trying to get my life back on track. A lot of positive things have been happening (and in turn for others around me). It was slow at first but it seems that ‘the being on track idea’ is happening.

          I made a conscious decision almost a year ago that areas of my life would have to change...mainly work. I had a secure job, with people I liked, but there were other serious problems within the organisation, and growing almost daily. I committed myself to the change of work and yes other opportunities did begin to open up.

          Last night before I went to bed I posted my status...

          Laurie is Vision Boarding.

          I peek in to see what’s going on at Fab40 today and Lo and Behold... here you all are doing the very same thing.

        • I am currently using the law of attraction to try and find myself a new job. I feel as if I am ready for a change and am encouraged by all of your stories.

          As far as karma, I do have an interesting story. One day while driving to work, I had a very rude and aggressive driver on my tail. One thing about me is that you cannot intimitade me on the road since I have seen way too many patient in the trauma bay due to rude (I am being very diplomatic) drivers. Anyway, Mr. Rude finally passes me in a no passing zone and speeds away at a guestimate of 85 mph. About a mile down the road, I see Mr. Rude on the side of the road pulled over by a cop. It was nice to see karma act so quickly!
