Remember our recent skoolie break down? For nearly 2 days we sat at the junction of two highways, waiting for the part to fix Our Argo. Downtime allows time for reflection; if you use it. You can take the given time to see what God/Universe might be trying to tell you. Or you can keep on spinning wheels.
It’s your choice.
I prefer (at least I like to believe I do) to step back and evaluate what lesson might be glaring at me. Often its my realization that we (as a couple or a family) are attracting what we don’t want.
One of the biggest concerns one has when traveling full-time is having enough money. Actually, whether you’re stationery or not, isn’t that what most of us are worried about?
- pay our bills,
- make more money,
- afford the lifestyle we’re desiring.
Well, with Everette’s business back in BC its not at all a regular income. It’s very sporadic. It is effected somewhat seasonally, with very much a quiet time before Christmas until sometime in February. The middle of summer can be quiet, too.
It can literally be months between when the work is done & invoiced, and when he actually gets paid.
I, on the other hand, have a set amount of money that comes in like clockwork. So sometimes we pace our expenditures based on the regularity of my deposit.
That’s what we were doing this month. With only a month of full-time skoolie traveling under our belt we are still unsure of what the overall expenses will be. So we thought we would keep our travels slow. Be conservative.
All fine and dandy. But we were saying things like:
“We always just have enough; there’s never any extra.”
“We’re at the end of the money.”
“We’re getting low and should make sure we have some money set aside in case we have a breakdown or some other unexpected event.”
It all sounds responsible. And it is. Its responsible to:
- have savings
- consider emergencies
- not spend more than you make.
But the difference is in the vibration at which one is living.
We weren’t living in a vibration of abundance. We were living in fear. At a low vibration of all that could go wrong. Of not having enough. Of being in lack.
Low vibrations attract other low vibrations.
Law of Attraction
Do you believe in the Law of Attraction? That we attract what we talk about, think about, dream about? It’s not necessarily the specifics…its the frequency or vibration of what we think, say and dream.
I’ve been working slowly through a workbook called Unleash Your Inner Money Babe and this morning I was on Day 12. The power of our words. Ouch…we’ve been living our words. Talking about running out of money. Planning ‘in case’ we had a break down. And that’s what we got. Not just once.
One evening, as if out of nowhere the brakes on the van started making a horrible noise. So first thing in the morning we purchased the necessary car parts. Within 2 days we were sitting on the side of the highway with our skoolie broken down. Then one morning we woke up to a flat tire on the bus. And it seemed that as soon as that was fixed we got a message from our son that the work truck back home in BC needed fixing.
All 3 vehicles we own needed work.
Believing is Seeing
You might believe that it was just coincidence. But I don’t believe in coincidence. I believe in manifesting what we’ve been creating in our minds.
You know that saying, “Seeing is believing!” Well I believe that its the other way around. That you won’t see it if you don’t believe it. But rather that to believe it means you will see it.
If you believe it will happen, then it will. If you’re saving up for a rainy day, you’re sure to get yourself a rainy day.
Power of Words
Forget attracting what we don’t want!
Back to being more careful about my words and what I’m attracting. Because its just as easy (and a whole lot more fun) attracting the positive stuff and living a life of abundance than the negative. Let’s go for the good stuff!!
This, or something better.
