The Law of Attraction not only saved my life, but it became my life. I thought I knew all the answers, and was on the fast track to a successful and prosperous life. Boy was I wrong. My life partner, Robin, and I ran a software company in California and it was leaking money like the proverbial sieve. For over five years, we had been searching for backing to help us launch the fantastic software program that we had patented—but to no avail. We were laying off staff, not paying ourselves in order to retain the crew we had and morale was not just low, but non-existent. We had creditors after us personally, as well as after the business and the stress level was incredibly high.
During what seemed to be our darkest hour, I had a major a-ha moment. I had been studying metaphysics for years, but I only understood it intellectually. I really did not understand how to apply it to my life until I stumbled upon a universal principle called the Law of Attraction. It was as though the light bulb came on, the fireworks went off, and I finally really got it!
Basically, the Law of Attraction says whatever you are focused on you will get more of – whether wanted or not. But what I realized is that it is the emotion – the emotional charge you have on whatever you’re focused on, that is magnetizing to you more of the same. This was the missing component from my life.
Imagine where my focus had set up residence. “We don’t have enough funds.” We can’t make the payroll.” “We will lose the business.” I’d been focusing on exactly what I did not want more of in my life! The thoughts I was repeating to myself, that focus on the lack of what I wanted was the engine, but the highly charged negative emotion I was carrying was the fuel that was magnetizing even more of what I did not want. Moreover, I had taken it to the ultimate level, as everyone within the company was simply amping up that vibration to gargantuan proportions.
Once I grasped the principle, I felt I had nothing to lose by introducing the concept to the rest of the company. In order to shift our emotions as a team, we created a company-wide game with a huge spreadsheet called the Prosperity Account. It was based on The Prosperity Game, a process I had learned about through Abraham-Hicks.
The game went like this. On Day 1, $10,000 was deposited into the account and everyone in the company was asked to post to the spreadsheet how the funds would be spent. Each day the account was increased by an additional $1,000. After a bit, I was surprised to see how generous people were being. Since there was no fear of the funds dwindling, department members were making purchases for other departments besides their own. The money in our imaginary Prosperity Account was flowing and we were actually having some fun. The goal of the game was to get our focus on something that felt better than where it had been for a very long time.
