The Importance Of Feeling Good

Posted: 03/11/10 08:52 AM ET

Coming back home from the park one morning, I set about doing a few chores, I felt like a child playing house. I had fun washing up the breakfast dishes. I enjoyed doing the laundry and hanging it outside to dry.
It feels good doing what I can to reduce my carbon footprint. It is perfect laundry weather, warm and breezy. A little later it is dry, I bring it back inside, it smells wonderful. I know that it may sound strange, but I've always enjoyed ironing, I find it soothing. I feel a childish pleasure at the clean laundry smell that wafts up with the steam from the ironing board, while I iron.
My husband is coming back in a few days. Ironing a bunch of shirts that I had washed after he left over a week ago, I realize how well, being on my own, has worked out after all.
The first night after he left, I suddenly got scared of the dark and grabbing my pillows I took refuge in my son's room. But still, I didn't sleep well. I spent the night tossing and turning, and in the morning I thought that the ten days until my husband came back, were going to be a very long time. That was then.
On this morning though, with the sun streaming into the kitchen and my heart beating with joy, I realized that being on my own, had given me the time and space I needed to find myself.
When I first watched The Secret, I learned that there is this thing called the Law of Attraction. But what The Secret failed to do, was to explain how it works. Now, through Abraham's books, I was learning that the whole Universe is governed by the Law of Attraction. I was finding out that there are DOs and DON'Ts, and that our emotions are there to guide us. What's more, everything I was learning resonated deeply within me.
It made me feel good, it empowered me.
To put it the way a friend of mine puts it; "What's there not to love?"
And so, while still ironing, I decide that with the help of the Abraham-Hicks books, I am going to Learn how the Law of Attraction works, and how to work with it.
And I am going to attract ever-increasing wealth, health and happiness within a year or less.
By the time the shirts are hanging in the wardrobe, I'm inspired to chronicle this journey and to share it with you.
