The Good, The Bad & The Ugly

Most of us don't want to admit we have a dark side. And from that dark side we do attract some ugly stuff. I was given the gift of a vivid display of just how ugly my anger and feelings of injustice truly are.

Let me set the scene: I had purchased something via telephone, using my credit card. Later, I was not happy with this product. I thought it would be useful in my business, but later discovered that it was NOT what I needed. I asked the company to refund my money and they said they would not. I was feeling quite angry about that and then I got my Master Card Statement. Well, this company had charged me $100 MORE than the price they had advertised on their website.

I was livid! I called the credit card company and tried to get it taken off my bill. But their representitive asked me: "What is their refund policy?" And I replied, they said they would not give a refund. "Well, then we can't refund any of your money." I argued that they had overcharged me and that I had "returned" the purchase. She told me that since their "policy" was not to give refunds, and I did not have proof of what I was saying, they would not refund or "chargeback" my money. And that was that! Now I was truly volatile. My blood pressure was WAY up there. And I was packing my belongings to take a much-needed three-day rest at a nearby spa. I was absolutely choked with anger, resentment and great feelings of injustice as I drove the hour and a half to my place of R & R (rest and relaxation).

Ah, the mineral springs. The water is so dense with minerals and salts that it is impossible to sink. This water is denser than the Dead Sea and very medicinal as well. I was enjoying myself, floating around quietly, when this man struck up a conversation with me. Not only did he disrupt my blissful repose, but as he spoke to me, he took hold of my neck pillow and began to toss it around as if it were his. I was floored! It was a definite breach of my personal boundaries, but I didn't quite know how to retrieve my belonging.

As if that were not bad enough, this man's speech was simply VILE. Every other word was profanity and he kept referring to people as 'snakes.' He was speaking loudly and aggressively. I was backing away from him yet he was staying right in my face. Finally, I said something like, "I need to go now. Can I have my pillow back?"

When I returned to my room, I asked myself the question: "What did I do to attract such a vile man?" All of a sudden, I understood. He was a direct reflection of the anger I had been feeling right before I left home.

Wow! What an awesome demonstration of the Law of Attraction by default. I repented right then and there of having chosen to focus on what I thought was an injustice. I realized that if I had manifested such a vile man into my space, then indeed, I was vibrating a vile vibration.

I managed to calm down and spend the rest of my time resting. By the time I returned home, I was in a place of quiet confidence and I wrote to the company I had been so angry with, and simply told them that I was an unhappy customer and to change that they would need to give me a refund of half the money I had paid them.

Well, they agreed to that request and sent me a cheque for the amount I asked for. That's the good part of this story. No, the best part of this story is the lesson I learned:

You WILL attract the likeness of what you are vibrating.
