    A Piano From Above

    Chances are you’ve heard of The Law of Attraction and the process of manifestation. We’re going to take a look at that Law in action in the next couple of installments.

    The Law says “whatever we give our attention to grows larger in our life”.  Lab experiments prove our brain is a broadcast tower emitting positive and negative impulses that either attract or repel.

    There are many names for these impulses, like directed energy, prayer, wishes, dreams, or just plain magic.  Whatever works for the believer, the result is the same. We either attract what we want or  (bummer) what we don’t want with our thoughts, feelings and emotions.

    So right now I am hearing “ You mean to say I desire a negative outcome?”.  No, but if you get one, chances are your desire to be right about the possibility of a negative outcome was stronger than your desire to receive a positive one.

    We’ll talk more on the need to be right in a later installment. For now, just go with me on this.

    Every proponent of The Law has a slightly different list of steps. For the sake of brevity, let’s say there are three:

    1. Desire
    2. Release
    3. Allow

    Here’s an example of this process and the Law itself, in action.

    I‘m getting ready to conduct a seminar. Gathering up my materials I come across an unmarked, recordable DVD. Popped it into the DVR.  It’s the PBS show with Scott Houston on how to play piano without having to learn notation.  Hmm?

    I didn’t record it but realized my friend Steve must have done so since I said that learning to play was on my Life List.  But first, I’d have to get a piano.

    I’d actually explored and bookmarked some sites a while back, then got distracted and moved on to other things.

    I labeled the DVD “Piano!”, put it on a shelf and went downstairs to bring my car around from the garage.

    As I approached the elevator bank, there on the message board, between the two lifts, was a hand scrawled notice:

    “Free Piano on seventh floor fire escape. Needs tuning. Come and get it!”.

    I looked around to see if I was being punk’d.

    Nope, no one around any corners with cameras. This was the real deal.

    Weirder yet, I was still holding the marker I’d used to label the DVD.

    I wrote  “Sold” on the notice and heart racing, I bolted like a crazy person, up seven double flights of stairs and raced out to the fire escape.

    Lo and behold, the piano was still there it  was black!  Just what I’d been looking for!

    Down to my sixth floor apartment, called Security, assuring them the piano was now mine. They said I had to remove it ASAP. I begged for time.  They begrudgingly gave me an hour.

    Back down to Six, into my apartment, calling everyone I could think of for the name of a piano mover. Agh, Voice Mails. Phone book: “Piano Mover: Same Day Service”.

    Pounded out the number on my phone, got a lovely woman who was charmed by my story. She called her truck, which was out in Santa Monica.  She called back saying they’d be there in 20 minutes.

    They were.

    Time elapsed from scrawling the word “Piano!” on the DVD to having one in my living room?

    55 minutes.
