Thinking Makes It So – Sometimes!

Lots of new age philosophers promise this. In my reality (as truly we each have our own realities…) this is true some of the time, not all of the time. Yet. Since it is a goal of mine, I like to acknowledge when it happens, so I can put the spotlight on my successes and generate energy for more of the same!

Last Sunday, my guy Shane was arriving in Albuquerque at 11:30 pm. He would then be driving about an hour up to Santa Fe. Having lived in both cities, I know that summer nights at 5000′ to 7000′ (above sea level) are cool and clear like few other places on the planet. And as you may recall, Saturday was the full moon, so there would be a big waning moon in the sky around that time.

At around midnight Shane calls me. “Did you order me a convertible at Hertz?”

I said, “No, however for just a brief moment around 11:10 pm MDT I had a brief thought of how cool it would be to drive the open road from ABQ to SAF in a convertible.”

That was it. A passing fancy. And voila, a convertible appeared on his rental contract, billed at the Compact Car rate.

All I have left to say, is what I might say on Twitter, via hashtag syntax:

Translation: How. Cool. Is. That.

It’s very freakin’ cool and I love it when that happens! Attached here is the actual car he drove. (Thanks baby for taking a nice photo for my blog.) Check out his gorgeous photography at

Do these “inexplicable” things happen to you? Do you allow a wider intelligence to play in your life? I would love to hear your stories of how all this “plays” out!

  1. Graduated college in April and was looking for a job for three months, and nothing was happening. I began to apply for graduate programs and found two schools that were perfect. Things just fell into place and my attitude began to chage to one of great positivity. My two weeks ago my father walked in and set down a local newspaper with an add circledM it was for a cellar worker at a winery five miles from my house that I did not know was in opperation. Went down the next day applied for the job, and it was less than 2 hours and I was asked to return to fill out paperwork. Started working the job and realized that an old famli friend was on of the head managers. I also realized the job wasn’t exactly what I was looking for. Then I heard a rummor there was a position that had just opened up in the wineries laboratory. I made a phone call as soon as my shift ended and was asked to come in for another interview. Got the job and I love it. The power of positive thinking is amazing,it has had a huge impact on my life, and who knows where it will take me.

  2. Ahhh, “My attitude began to change…” That is the so-called secret right? I love your comment. Thanks! Rox

  3. I was living up in New Hampshire preparing for my move to the beach in south Florida. Everything was going smoothly with one exception – I didn’t have a place to live.

    My choices were either to get stressed out or to trust that everything would work out. I chose trust. When the real estate agent assured me that I’d never find a place that met my criteria, I just knew I would. And I did. I found exactly what I was looking for just a few blocks from the beach.

  4. “I chose trust.” #LoveIt! And love you for commenting. 🙂

  5. Looks like a Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder – not a Mazda

  6. @Ryan B – You are correct! I fixed the tags on the post. Crossed a few wires when watching a user video about Mazda on You Tube. 🙂
