An Example Of Allowing A Desire To Arrive On Its Own

I don’t know why, but it seems we trip over the “allowing” part of the Deliberate Attraction formula more often than the other two parts. The Deliberate Attraction formula gives us a simple description of how to leverage the Law of Attraction so we can attract more of what we DO want and enjoy. The three steps are simply:

1) Become very clear about what you DO want.
2) Raise your internal vibration, through removing doubts and fears, so you are a vibrational match for your desire.
3) Allow your desire to come to you.




Much has been written already about the first two steps. You’ll find lots of personal stories and succinct teaching in my articles at YouCanHaveItAll.com. But how do we “allow”– what do we need to do to actually receive what we so clearly desire, yet do not have?

Recently, I had a nice experience of what it feels like to “allow.” I’ve been noticing that my office wastebasket is inadequately spilling over too often. It is just a little eight-inch sea-grass basket and it hardly holds two days worth of opened envelopes and crumpled paper. After months of mentally complaining about its lack of capacity, I finally asked myself, “So, what kind of wastebasket would I like?”

I began to imagine a sleek, black, matte finish wastebasket–about 15 inches high with a 12 inch diameter top, and tapered at the bottom. Yes, that would be adequate for a week’s worth of trash from my office and it would look professional alongside my other black office accessories.

Next I collected data on possible wastebaskets. For about a week, every time I entered a building that might have my ideal wastebasket, I looked for it. I found step-on aluminum cans–no, I don’t want to step on anything. I found black plastic trash bins with swivel lids–no, I don’t want a swivel lid–I want an open receptacle so I can toss paper into it. I found black trash cans on wheels–too industrial looking. I found ceramic pots that were almost right–too heavy to empty out. I was noticing the price range went from $18.99 to $49.99.

Finally, I let it go. I told myself, “The right one will show up.” And it did.

I was at the Hudson Bay Store, here in Victoria, BC, making a purchase when I decided to cash-in some of my “Reward Points” for a gift certificate. I had NEVER thought about cashing-in Reward Points before–it had never occurred to me to do so. I took the elevator to the fifth floor and while a delightful young lady at the Reward Counter prepared my gift certificate, my eye scanned across the isle. There I noticed A BLACK WASTEBASKET–just the size and shape I had pictured in my imagination. With gift card in hand, I swiftly crossed the isle and lifted the basket. “Ah, it is made of felt-board–very lightweight. Matte black finish with nail-head trim. About 14 inches high and 12 inches in diameter–tapered at the bottom. Very professional looking.” I turned the basket upside-down to read the price: “$16.99.” Very good! With my gift certificate in hand I proceeded to the checkout stand. When the clerk scanned the price, she gasped and asked me, “How much do you think this costs?”

“Well, the sticker says ‘$16.99’.”

She was shaking her head in disbelief as she replied, “It’s on sale for $5.00.”

“Five dollars?” I asked, in complete surprise.

“Five dollars,” she repeated.

“I’ll pay cash and save my gift certificate!”

Can you imagine the joy I felt at that moment? Not only was the price right, but the manner in which my exact desire had come to me was absolutely delicious!

“Allowing” is simply the old adage: “Let go, and let God.” It’s “Detachment from the outcome.” More like “Detachment from forcing something to happen.”

Allowing is truly letting the Law of Attraction bring your desire into your sphere in its own time, place and manner. Allowing doesn’t mean getting second best–it means allowing the Law of Attraction to bring your exact desire–in the BEST way possible.

Is there something you are not allowing through trying to make it happen or by wanting it a certain way or at a certain time? Let it go. Believe that the Law of Attraction WILL bring it to you in the perfect time and the perfect way. Believe it because that IS the law.
