good question was posted on a Feel Free to Prosper forum...
I thought this was an excellent subject to pursue as I have no
doubt that this subject is probably
on the minds of many who desire to maintain a prosperity consciousness
when outer appearances support the opposite, especially in a down
"I consider myself a good shopper: use coupons, wait for sales, buy
generic, etc. But are these smart shopper "actions" sending a bad
signal to my subconscious? After all, the message I want to send is "I
can afford anything (at any price)." How about it, do we have to be as
careful with our actions as we are with our words?"
What a wonderful opportunity to express my views relating to prosperity
consciousness vs. bargain consciousness...
On the subject of sales and bargains, there is something magical that
happens when you acquire a prosperity mindset.
One of the great perks of acquiring a
prosperity consciousness is that savings and discounts of all kinds
will follow YOU on the path. When we are connected to our Universal
Source, suddenly it seems like the Universe becomes your personal
shopper whose goal is to provide you with the best for your needs at
the very best price. You no longer have to shop to seek the best prices
- no comparison shopping, no bargain hunting. Discounts and savings
seek you and appear before you spontaneously as if you are the elite
of a private wholesale club. Except that the savings you attract are
often far below wholesale!
This is not to be confused with
a kind of "bargain" mentality that is based on lack and the fear of not
having enough. The spontaneous manifesting of savings – the real
bargains – come when we accept prosperity
as natural to us and we know
that the Universe is providing for all our needs. It's a joyful
experience. We attract bargains at the highest possible level. We are
intuitively led to the right place at the right time.
Let me share just a few of my
numerous experiences of being spontaneously guided in this way to
'Universal' size bargains …
I have always loved beautiful, fine quality handbags.
One year I walked into Nordstrom's department store and found an
absolutely gorgeous black leather and leopard-print handbag. It was
extremely expensive looking, but I didn't recognize the designer name.
The attached sales tag showed the price of $135 – not at all
unreasonable for such a beautiful bag. It was the only one of its kind
in the department. I had to have it. I handed it to the saleswoman but
she looked at the tag and told me she couldn't sell it to me. She said
this designer's bags sold for at least $500 or $600 and this one must
have been mislabeled. Although the label was attached, she believed she
was justified in refusing to sell it. The department manager wouldn't
be in until the following day. We arranged for the saleswoman to put
the handbag on hold and have the manager call me to give me the correct
The next day, the department
manager called and told me the price of the handbag was $600. But since
the attached tag read $135, she told me that by store policy, she had
to sell the bag for the labeled price. She invited me to come and
purchase my bag for $135!
I have found that expensive handbags stay new looking for years and
that one still looks beautiful to this day.
Another year I found an elegant Donna Karan Couture clutch handbag in a
department store. It was $900 – way beyond the price I chose
But I had a "hunch" to ask the saleswoman if the bag might go on sale
in the near future. For some unknown reason, she looked over the bag
very carefully and found an imperceptible tiny flaw hidden in a fold
that no one would ever see. I certainly would not have found it. But
she said that since it had that tiny flaw, she had the authority to
sell it to me at half price! I never asked for this. She offered.
Another beautiful bag I still use that receives many compliments.
One of my most striking experiences was the purchase of an entire
collection of Villeroy & Boch dinnerware. I didn't set out to
buy a collection – I intended to buy a few place
settings of the
gorgeous Plantation and Tropical Collection, which was on sale in a
department store's catalogue. But when I called to place the phone
order, the store had none in stock. I discovered that particular
pattern had been discontinued by the manufacturer and any remaining
items in circulation were selling at up to 80% off retail prices. I
jumped on the opportunity and using only the telephone, I was guided to
manifest the entire collection from several stores around the nation.
The retail cost of the collection: over $7,000. The price I paid for
everything: Under $1,500. This included not only ten settings of the
dinnerware, but all of the accent pieces, accessories, flatware and
Another time I was shopping for a specific item of sleepwear and didn't
intend to buy anything else. But I was irresistibly drawn to a sale
rack where I found two beautiful Ralph Lauren casual pieces – top and
bottom – in my favorite shade of red.
They were the only two items of
that kind, both in my size and they fit perfectly. They were marked
down half price but I loved the outfit so much I would have paid full
price. When the items were rung up at the register, the saleswoman
informed me that the half-price tag was incorrect. Instead, they
scanned at $6.52 each!
A major coup was when the
Universe literally handed me a beautiful new car and opened the door
for me to purchase it – brand new – for about $10,000 less than
Do I look for bargains? No. Do
I love a bargain? Yes!

wanted to share with you what I have experienced since listening to
your teleclass call Tuesday...
is really neat. This morning my husband, who is into guitars, said
he had just found one on Craigslist a guy was very eager to sell to pay
bills. He went on to say the man had only bought it a month
ago. It turns out my husband had seen that very guitar in a
local store about a month ago and when he went back to buy it, it had
sold. The man is selling for half what he paid. I
told Randy, "You claimed this guitar, it is rightfully yours and the
universe has adjusted to allow you to receive it." He smiled
and said, "Damn skippy!" as he left to go get it. Well, a few
minutes ago he called and said, "This is just weird, the guy who was
selling it walked up to me, looked me straight in the eye and told
me, 'I don't know if you believe in this kind of stuff or not but you
were meant to have this guitar.'" Randy told him that is what
I had just said.
think this is awesome because it shows me once again the universe is
at work in our lives.
I left out a little bit of that story. The man who put the
guitar up for sale had also listed it two weeks ago for sale and no one
responded. When he again listed it yesterday, my husband
contacted him within 10 minutes and the man and his wife were both
amazed. Furthermore, an amp was part of the deal. My husband
didn't really want to keep that and sold it to a neighbor last night
for $100.00. Thus the final price of the guitar is about a third of the

Loved your Lands End
manifestation story in your newsletter. I have an interesting Lands End manifestation
I've been shopping at their outlet stores and ordering from their
catalog for a few years now. They have great quality clothes.
I saw a leather jacket on their website that I really liked. It was a
golden brown color. The jacket was over $200 so I didn't order
A few months later a liquidation warehouse that had just opened down
the street announced that they would be receiving a shipment of
products from Lands End. They were also having a VIP Members night on
the night before products would be available to the general public. I
signed up to become a VIP member shortly after the store
My mom and I went to the VIP night and were amazed by the variety
products available. One product in particular caught my
attention. It was the leather jacket I saw online. There was
only one and it was my size. Here is the real kicker. The prices of the
products were $10 each or 3 or more for $7 each.
I got the leather jacket and 3 other beautiful blazers for $28. Can you
imagine :) Really anything is possible when you understand
and believe in the power of the Universe.
Congratulations on your new book. Thanks for teaching me how to put the
Universe on speed dial.
