Living in the Stream of Yes

Mastery of Murphy’s Law


Some of us feel we can be a victim of Murphy’s Law, i.e. when unwanted events start coming forth in a continuous and uncontrollable stream. No! Here is the news: we are never subject to some external force messing up our lives! We are the creators of our lives. If we keep our minds on unwanted, and hold the vibration of victim, unwanted may show up in a sequence. But that is not outside our control!

We can have a day where we stub our toe, burn our toast, receive bad news.

We now know we can master that situation.

Stop that Progression

What response could we make to turn things around?  

We know humans are all subject to the universal law:  “That which is like unto itself is drawn.”  

To Begin

Slow down that momentum of thought.


Distract ourselves.

Smell whatever roses are available.

Notice our Breathe.

Take a Nap

Wait till the next day after a good night’s sleep.

Then turn to appreciating what you see and conjuring what you DO WANT.

The Illustration

Here is what one woman did when she started to predict unwanted coming:

Roseanne planned time away visiting friends for a couple of nights each. One friend, Cammy, unexpectedly had complex dental procedure two nights before Lana’s time to arrive.

R felt a pull to worry–

At the time of the visit, Cammy cannot eat regular food,  has many rules in her kitchen, keeps herself on a busy schedule.

Plus, Our heroine’s hand had begun to swell, an occasional symptom.

Oh dear. In an old internal habit Roseanne could predict this lead to discomfort and tension.

But NO, R would NOT let a belief in Murphy’s Law take hold. Roseanne CHOSE not to envision continued difficulty, tension and distress.

Instead, Roseanne brought flowers! Our star put clear intention of fun and affection into each moment. What could she enjoy right now? Dinnertime? She enjoys cooking and eating, answering questions about herself, inquiring about her hosts.

Roseanne regaled herself with appreciating:

  1. How lovely to stride on morning walk, to attend an art class at the historic home of a famous poet, to create in the shelter of the wide old veranda and to use umbrellas to view the garden. Beautiful and sweet!
  • What a treat to eat fish fresh from the harbor!

Our star looked for the good and kept asking “What can I appreciate?” She became aware of more and more.

She chose What she would think and then she had fun.

In fewer days than expected, Lana’s hand returned to normal, resolved without any worry.  

Isn’t it great to KNOW we each have this power to create a roll of what we WANT.
