So, I’ve been re-reading one of my favorite classics, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles, which is really the science of manifesting anything you want in your life, when….
Well, let’s just say I was thrown off course by the unexpected. You see my husband had a number of surgeries recently and just prior having them I called my health insurance company to verify our coverage.
Being self-employed, we pay over $800 a month for a high-deductible “catastrophe” policy, hoping that we’d never have to use it, but knowing that it was (at least on paper) an excellent policy if we ever did need it. In almost 10 years we’ve never put it to the test as we keep ourselves pretty healthy.
So after being told that we had 100% coverage after we met our deductible, I went white when I opened the mail on Saturday to find bill after bill has been denied, and for no reason that makes any sense. It adds up to a LOT of money.
So, how do I stay positive and feel abundant when facing a mountain of unexpected medical bills? Of course I’m going to appeal it, but who needs to deal with that!
I noticed that my mind keeps wandering to the “lack” side of the fence and I have to go get it and haul it back to the reality that it is an abundant universe.
So it was somewhat comforting to read in The Science of Getting Richthis morning that…
Every person has the natural and inherent power to think what he wants to think, but it requires far more effort to do so than it does to think the thoughts which are suggested by appearances. To think according to appearances is easy. To think truth regardless of appearances is laborious and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work a person has to perform.
So now I don’t feel quite so bad. It’s not just me that has trouble with this. Wattles goes on to explain that sustained and consecutive thought is the hardest work in the world. Especially when the truth it is contrary to appearances. That’s because every “appearance” creates a corresponding form in our mind. The bills certainly made an impression on my mind!!!
Yet, to create true abundance and wealth, I have to return time after time to the truth that it is an abundant universe, and that I can be, do and have what I want?
Boy, I’ve got my work cut out for me today…
