When I took a year out of retail in 2012, I learnt a lot of new concepts. One was the idea that what we have in our minds, can manifest itself in reality, and that we are what we think. I may have heard of this before but never really paid attention to what it meant.
Sometimes, I have the uncanny nack of being able to think of something and then an opportunity presents itself for me to be able to carry out that thought. For example on Sunday 9th March, I was returning home from work and I felt like a drink of smoothie or orange juice. Almost immediately after this thought, I was drawn to deviate from my usual walk home to go into my local Co-op. I tied to resist but felt compelled to go in there. Bingo! There it was, a smoothie made with oranges and various other ingredients, reduced from £1.05 to 35p and it was the only one left. So I bought it and drank it straight away.
A couple of years ago, I had previously been thinking about my e-Book store and how I would learn to create an e-Book. Although I wasn’t thinking about this at the time, I walked past WH Smith and felt compelled to go into it. I had no idea why, my sixth sense was just telling me that I needed to. My mind was telling me to go to the magazine isle and to look at the magazines, but I had no idea why and then – Bingo! There was a small book all about self-publishing with e-Books. Incredible. I have these moments and feel blessed but sometimes they can also be a little scary.
Have you ever thought of something and it has become a reality, or an opportunity has presented itself to you because of your thoughts?
I have 9 pages of amendments left to do for my Break through the barriers of redundancy book. I then need to give it the once over and get someone to check it before it is published.
Next week I am at the Business Showcase South West and Only Colston networking events in Bristol.
Enjoy your thoughts and your week.
Write as soon as I am able to

It’s great isn’t it when things like this happen? I’m learning to listen to my nudges! Have a great week Sandra 🙂
Thanks Sherri. Instincts are a wonderful thing and even better when we trust them. I am behind with my blog comments at the moment and still catching up from when I was away. Your comment is at the front of my book by the way. I can exclusively reveal, that this is what it will look like:
“Your book should be a big hit Sandra! I have been made redundant twice and have been unable to return to paid employment since the last time in 2011, as I have my daughter who has Asperger’s Syndrome to look after. My writing and blogging is what keeps me going, but I went through a really rough time after both redundancies for all the reasons you cite. I wish I had your book then.”

I hope this is okay for you?
I would love to steal your talent for opportunity my friend. I’m glad that you really can achieve things with the power of your mind.
Absolutely you can. Especially when you don’t try but let it happen.
You can Ste. Apparently so much of our mind is untapped into, so I guess now and again, I am dipping my toe in to some part of my mind that I don’t access very often and that sounded weird – quirky even.
I say “thanks” too!… when this happens!
Thanks Marilyn. Glad you know what I am talking about.
Well I’m good at finding ‘lost things’ does that count? My husband and sons are forever ‘misplacing’ things and I’m forever ‘finding’ them 🙂
And yes I feel I have been ‘guided’ ( is perhaps the better word) to certain places and things at certain times 🙂
Finding lost things is another amazing gift and a great time saver. Well done you.
Great post Sandra 😀 That’s the way it is. It happens to me a lot. It’s wonderful, isn’t it ? And I always say thank you when it happens. Ralph xox ❤
That’s great to hear it happens to you too. I think it is good so long as it’s good things I am having a sixth sense about.
