This story changed how I see everything.
Confession. I don't study insects and I don't golf but here we are, on a website called Expect Butterflies with a podcast of the same name because (duh duh DUUUUH)...
...I heard an amazing story that inspired me so much I thought about it. A lot. :)
When I heard it I said "THIS is what Law of Attraction is all about!"
It's about how the Universe is always conspiring to help us in all the ways possible.
And there are a lot of possible ways.
I tell it here on the podcast.
Do you want to read it here?
Don't scroll if you want to hear it on the podcast first....
OK..... here comes the story....
I know someone who was a conference where a guy spoke. I'll call the guy who spoke Story Guy because Story Guy was telling a story.
Story Guy had a long-time friend. I'll call the friend Lucky Guy.
Now as you can imagine, Lucky Guy was very lucky. He was the kind of guy who bought a mansion, started to fix it up, got tired of fixing it up and thought to himself wouldn't it be nice if I did something else instead? and just then he hears a noise outside and when he goes outside A HELICOPTER LANDS IN HIS YARD and a man hops out and says "I'd like to buy your house."
Helicopter Guy then he offers Lucky Guy a sale price waaaaay higher that Lucky Guy paid for the house in the first place. He made millions that day.
So, yeah, lucky*
One day Story Guy and Lucky Guy were playing golf. They often did. But Lucky Guy always won. And when I say always I mean ALWAYS.
On this particular day Story Guy was about the faint because he and Lucky Guy were neck-and-neck and it was the last hole. If Lucky Guy missed this shot then Story Guy was going to win. WAS IT POSSIBLE HE WAS GOING TO FINALLY WIN?!
Story Guy was so excited.
Also, Lucky Guy's ball was in a horrible spot. Off the green. In the bush. Somewhere not handy for winning.
So Lucky Guy gets in position and hits his ball. It goes onto the green! It heads towards the hole! It's almost at the hole! It's... it's... it's... stopping. Perched. Hanging on the lip of the hole but not going in.
Oh my gosh, I've won! Story Guy is beside himself with glee.
Just then a butterfly comes out of nowhere, flutters around, lands on Lucky Guy's ball, lifts off and flies away, AND THE BALL FALLS IN THE HOLE.
And that's Law of Attraction in a nutshell.
When you are in alignment with something ALL COOPERATIVE COMPONENTS ASSIST YOU. And the Universe has ALL of the components. Animals. Wind. Heat. Life. People if they are open to their intuition. All of it.
Right when I heard that story I knew I wanted more butterflies in my life.
Not specifically butterflies (although they are awesome) but amazing surprises. And not just surprises, but I wanted to be so in alignment with who I truly am that I wanted to expect butterflies.
Of course a butterfly landed.
I want to expect butterflies.
And I want that for you too.
*lucky = code for aligned
Do you feel lucky? ;)
Law of Attraction. Spirituality. Intuition. Mindset. Your Relationship With...Everything.
