These things are really happening around us all the time. If it doesn't feel like they're showing up in your life, it may be because that's not where you're putting your focus. It seems to be human nature to hurtle through the day, trying to "accomplish" as much as we can.

Sometimes when the momentum really gets going, you can find yourself on a roll. We're all composed of energy, and this is part of the vibrational frequency we're sending out into the world. Watch out -- that vending machine may just give you two items instead of one!
Of course, our energies ebb and flow. It's just fun to play with this concept and watch what shows up. Things may not change overnight -- or in the areas we think they ought to. With consistent attention to the "goodies" that happen around us, though, chances are more and more of them will occur:

If the spirit moves you, shoot me an email about ways this shows up in your life; and I'll look at sharing your insight with other readers. Who knows what we may discover? After all, the joy is in the journey.
