“When Goliath came against the Israelites, the soldiers all thought, ‘He’s so big we can never kill him.’ But David looked at the same giant and thought, ‘He’s so big, I can’t miss.’”—Ode to Joy (Society of Paul)


My friend, Paris Salido, a terrific masseuse, wanted to go on a vacation to Australia, yet had other budget priorities for her money. Being a graduate of the Financial Stress Reduction Workshop, she knew the importance and power of affirmations, so she invented one for vacation purposes: “I now receive free first-class travel and accommodations all around the world.” (She told me that it is important when saying this out loud to move your arm in a circle three times with “all around the world.”)

Four months later, she was talking with a friend of hers in the travel industry—someone with a large family who always had plenty of relatives to whom to give any travel vouchers or discounts. She had never given Paris anything before. But this particular day, she said to Paris, “We’ve been friends a long time and I want to give you this voucher for a free airplane ticket anywhere in the world!”

Today’s Affirmation: “I now receive free first-class travel and accommodations all around the world!”


In “Money and the Law of Attraction”, Abraham Hicks mentions that you should wake up every morning and luxuriate in bed before you get up, telling yourself how warm and good you feel. Part of attracting the experiences you want is relishing your good when you have it and staying with that energy. One of my favorite all-time quotes of theirs is this:

“The Universe is responding to you in your NOW. So whatever you’re feeling right NOW means that is what you are sending out vibrationally right NOW, which means that is what you are attracting to yourself right NOW, which means your future is FULL of a bunch of stuff that is gonna feel pretty much like right NOW feels.”

I put this into practice one day after my birthday, and I had received so many lovely notes from my Facebook friends, I wanted to take the time to read through them. I heard from past clients and long-missed friends, and dolphins everywhere. Many of them mentioned that they were still doing their affirmations and reading “The Wealthy Spirit” every day.

After I read a few of these special notes, I started to really take them in and feel the love they expressed. I wanted to write back, but there were so many of them! But just posting a group thank you on my wall wasn’t enough. I made the decision to devote the time to write a response to each person, and I did. It took me over two hours, but the entire time I felt loved and appreciated. I sat here at my computer with a wonderful smile on my face. I feel good and am smiling right now just thinking about it.

And when I played poker that night, I won another jackpot…and another one the following day! That makes three jackpots in one week, which must be something of a record, I imagine. Everyone asked, “How did you get so lucky?”

You know how. Keep reading and practicing your affirmations, feel joy and love in everything you do, know that you’re already lucky just being on the planet. Little problems and setbacks are just contrasts to show you what you really want – don’t dwell on them or you’ll get more of them. Focus on what you want, instead of what you don’t want. Then send out your ships. Believing is seeing.
