It's one week ago and I am experiencing one of those magical days when everything falls into place with ease:
A 10 unit real estate package is coming together; a seller calls me with a great brick ranch that she wants to unload at wholesale pricing; a rehabbed house we are selling continues to pass the FHA loan hurdles for our buyer; and last but not least, I receive a phone call from a realtor we've employed to sell my father's condo in Ohio. He shares the good news that the condo is now under contract, one week after being listed, with an offer for more than we expected. Considering that the town my father's condo is in has the lowest real estate sales in the entire state of Ohio, I am blown away.
When I relay the series of good news to my husband, he tells me to go out and buy a lottery ticket.
Instead I became introspective and reflect upon why the stars seem aligned for me right now. It occurs to me that it is not the stars that are aligned. It is me that is aligned.
I trace the days back and recall that the previous week I had listened to a national speaker who came into town to talk on the topic of real estate investing. As I listen to him, I experience a quiet set of revelations about what pieces of my business to put into place that would take me to the next level financially.
With this insight I feel inspired. My confidence soars. I can feel what I want as if it's already happening. Which is just another way of saying I tuned myself up vibrationally. My inner vibration now matches what I say I want. Action is still necessary. But action without that vibrational match creates struggle and less than desirable results.
Visualizing has it's place. But I'm learning that we gotta feel it on the inside before we see it on the outside. We gotta feel the vibes.
The following day I run across this quote:
It's all right there for you; it's ready for you to receive it as fast and as soon as you will vibrationally let it in. Financial success, or any other kind of success, does not require hard work. It does require alignment of thought. You simply cannot offer negative thought about things that you desire and then make up for it with action or hard work. When you learn to direct your own thoughts, you will discover the true leverage of energy alignment.
By the way, I did not buy a lottery ticket. Don't believe in them. Guess I just don't have the lottery vibe!
