I believe in magic(k). I’m a fan of all things woo-woo, defined by Merriam-Webster as “dubiously or outlandishly mystical, supernatural, or unscientific.” I’m still learning in a lot of ways. My mindset needs a lot of work and I take in personal growth content like my life depends on it. And, to some degree, I guess it does. I’ve been learning about manifestation for years but it suddenly became clear to me just a few months ago. The spark? I experienced my very own law of attraction success story.
In one of many iterations of my learning more about LOA, I set out to make a virtual vision board. With Pinterest at hand, I turned to Canva (the perfect tool for creating a digital vision board!). It was amidst this process that I came across this image:
At this point, we were a few months into the COVID-19 pandemic. Consequentially, I was a few weeks into my first serious skincare regimen. Although it was a new interest, it was one I was already starting to love (and still do!). As I researched the best products and tools for me, I came across skincare fridges countless times. But, seeing the hefty price tags, I knew it was a long-term addition to my arsenal, at best.
Still, between my newfound love for skincare and the gorgeous aesthetic of this picture, Hayley’s photo made its way onto my vision boards. It fit the mood of my ideal life perfectly. So, even if it didn’t seem possible just yet, it was a must-have addition.
I ended up with two vision boards using the photos I’d accumulated. One was a landscape grid, which I set as my laptop background and the other was horizontal, formatted for my phone’s lock screen. This way, it would be the first thing I’d see whenever I opened or closed my phone or computer!
For months, I saw my digital vision boards countless times each day—I spend a lot of time on my phone & computer as I run my businesses! I didn’t see much in terms of success. Like so many others, I struggled through 2020. Still, I stuck with it. And, come autumn, the vision boards paid off.
My mom and I headed out on a (masked) shopping trip, in search of Christmas gifts and a few necessities. As we started into Walmart, we spotted a display of colourful mini fridges as part of their pre-Black Friday offerings. I was excited to see the discounted price, about $25, the vintage style, and the stunning colours.
At first, I was drawn to the gorgeous mint fridge. In part due to my love of Tiffany & Co., mint has been my go-to colour for years! But something about the blush pink stood out to me and I broke my own rule of thumb—I picked up a pink mini fridge and brought it home, adding some of my favourite skincare products and some other goodies.
It wasn’t until a few weeks later that I connected the dots. This was the same fridge I’d saved to my vision board! I could hardly believe it—and had a hard time believing that coincidence alone could explain it. Could there be a more mundane explanation, a simple matter of pretty colours catching my eye amidst happenstance? Sure. But I choose to believe in magic(k), manifestation, and the law of attraction…and will keep on working on my mindset.
Because my first law of attraction success story came from my vision boards, I recently recreated them. Who knows what my next manifestation success will be?
