There are those days when nothing seems to be going right; when everything you say or do contributes to your downward spiral. And then there are those days when one thing after another works in your favor and you can’t believe your good fortune. We sometimes refer to this as being “on a roll.” The day is almost magical.

Michael Losier (my Law of Attraction guru) teaches that we have created the conditions for everything that comes into our lives, both positive and negative. The trick is to keep the high energy flowing by only focusing on what we “DO” want, as opposed to what we “DON’T” want. (I know I’ve talked about this before; I’m just doing a mini-review here.)

I recently had a day that was one for the books. In fact, I wrote several pages in my gratitude journal that night. When you see all your blessings of the day in print, it really brings home just how wonderful life can be. (I have recommended keeping a gratitude journal before, but it also bears repeating.)

So what happened? Glad you asked…

First thing in the morning, I was able to get a flu shot even though I didn’t have an appointment. Next, the department store actually had the coat I wanted, in the size I needed, at a price I was willing to pay. I went to a meeting right after I tore the tags off my new coat and was immediately complimented on it… How’s THAT for keeping the energy high?

At the meeting I was invited to announce my upcoming book signing event. I left the meeting and went to the post office where my book proofs and galleys were waiting for my approval. The cover was perfect; an amazing manifestation of what I imagined my “ideal book cover” would look like. The manuscript only needed one layout tweak. I signed to authorize production without further delay.

Next I opened up my email and found a request for me to fill out a “Permissions Form” so that a story I had submitted could be included in “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teacher Tales,” to be released in February. I’ll get $200 and 10 copies.

All day I focused only on what I wanted, not on what I didn’t want, and my day overflowed with abundance and blessings. By keeping high vibrations firmly in mind, we can “attract” one good thing after another.

By constantly expressing our gratitude to the universe, the universe gives us more to be grateful for. Try it for yourself. Just for today, identify and acknowledge all the good things that come into your life. Practice saying, “Thank you, thank you, thank you” whenever you notice a blessing, no matter how small. I think you’ll be astonished at the immediate difference it makes. And before you know it, you’ll be on a roll too!
