The Parking Spot

ParkingSpotI’ve been reading the book, The Secret and learning about The Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction states: Everything that’s coming into your life you are attracting into your life, and it’s attracted to you by virtue of the images you’re holding in you mind. It’s what you’re thinking in your mind that attracts things into your life.

It seemed plausible, so I thought I would give it a try.

I had a doctor’s appointment at the hospital and parking is always a problem. I focused on finding the perfect parking spot for when I got there. All the way over in the car I thought about my perfect parking spot that would be close to the entrance and in the shade

I asked for the perfect parking spot, I believed it would be there, and I would receive it.

I drove into the lot closest to the building because I knew my spot would be in that lot and behold… my spot was waiting for me! It was the closest one that could ever be, under a shade tree, and it was open!

I pulled right in, parked and locked the car. I walked into the building and smiled happily all the way. I was thinking “This stuff really works“. I was filled with positive thoughts and took time to give thanks and gratitude to the universe. I was not only excited with my parking spot, but with the endless possibilities that I now believed The Law of Attraction could bring to me.

After my appointment I came out, got in my car, and pulled out of my great parking spot. As I left the lot I passed a sign that I didn’t remember seeing on the way in. The sign said: Reserved Parking. Physicians decal parking only.


In an odd sort of way The Law of Attraction did work. I envisioned the perfect parking spot and it came to me. Needless to say I quickly drove away to escape attracting a parking ticket.
