The Law Of Abundance At Work?

On the evening of New Year‘s day, Jose came back from taking Pablo for a walk and the moment I opened the door said, “I have bad news for you.” Now given the fact that they both looked safe and sound, I wasn’t too perturbed. “I’ve lost my wedding ring.” he said.

Apparently, Pablo had got into a friendly joust with another dog and José felt that his ring which was rather loose fell off when he was trying to control him. After leaving Pablo at home, José went back to the same spot to look for the ring, but had no luck. When he came back, I said, “Forget about it. Let’s hope that whoever finds it, really has need for it.”

I put the ring out of my mind as did José.



The Law Of Abundance At Work

The next morning, I got up with a strong feeling that we were going to find the ring. I told José, “Let’s go to the spot where you lost it.” So I was marching up and down the road looking for the ring. I was also pretending to be most casual about it, not to alert passersby that we were looking for something! But we had no luck.

Later in the day, Jose was vacuuming the house when he noticed something shiny under the bed – there it was – the ring!

We’re grateful that we found the ring – it is an expensive piece of jewellery and does have some sentimental value. However, its temporary loss reinforced in us the notion of abundance. When I said “I hope the person who finds it really needs it” I  believe was letting go of the ring. I  exercised the Law of Abundance: there is always an abundance of things spiritual or temporal. We all have exactly what we need at the present moment – and there’s plenty for everyone.

Do you think it was the Law of Abundance that was in operation in this situation? Have you had a similar experience with letting go of something – a relationship, a plan, an object – only to have it come back to you?

    I would think it is more the law of attraction than the law of abundance, but probably it is a mix of the both.

    I know I’m late to the dance. I found this post and i had to put my 2cents in. I think there was abundance at play, but tied to it was the law of attraction; you attract to you what you think of most.
    Anyway glad i found this post. Thanks Corinne.

    What a great story Corrine!

    It does reflect the power of “letting go” and especially with something that has value and sentimental meaning.
    I always feel that way. Guess it is part of my personality. I can let go of things very easily. When you said “I hope whoever finds it needs it” is a very powerful statement!
    Not only were you letting go, but also were in the mindset that was the process of giving. Glad you found it!

    It’s a good feeling when you get back something that is lost. This has happened with me too. It feels like heaven, especially if it had meant a lot to you.

    Corrine, I am so glad to know that the ring was safe at home. Many times I too have lost things and found them, and also many times I have not found them too. The times I have not found them are the ones really puzzling, for I am 100% sure nobody has taken them, still they have not been found. But somewhere deep in my heart I feel that they have purposely hidden from my eyes and have left the matter at that.
    Your blog reminded me of a blog of quotes compiled by me regarding ” Ocean Of Abundance”, written some years ago.
    It is:
    Happy New Year Corrine!!

    I lose people more often than money ~ some from sickness, some from death, some from separation and change of address and way of life… but I guess, they come back one way or another (in another form, through another person). It’s like God makes me feel that I’ve not lost anything or anybody at all 🙂

    But I love that this phenomenon has a name 🙂 Thanks for sharing that BS.

    Oh yes it has happened to me. It took me years to get over Randy, I was literally suicidal, (after I kicked him out), then suddenly as I let go and seriously moved on in my life, there he was at my door. Amazing. Also when I was little this happened with a cat who got lost. that too was amazing.

    The Law of Abundance is the belief that by willing yourself abundance you allow
    it to come to you.

    WOW such a touching post Corinne!

    Yes it has happened with me when I have let go of people who hurt me and walked out of my life only to have them come back to me only to have them come back to me asking for their place back in my life 😀

    I have recently discovered the term “Law of Abundance.” It really isn’t any different from what a preacher has preached on ALL MY LIFE!! I grew up listening to Kenneth Copeland. As an adult I just recently “get it.” I am such a happier person (still take my meds though!!) AND I see even more abundance coming to me. Husband says I am just more “aware.” I don’t think so..

    Oh.. I just hit me!! Blog time 😉 I had a $10 off if you purchase $25. I had a friend with me wanting the same stuff I did, but she was totally broke.. HER stuff put me right AT the “coupon off amount”.. SO I got it for her and still paid next to nothing for her stuff.

    Hi Corinee

    I need to dwell on this Law of abundance, but Glad you got the ring back.
    I would have said, Whatever God does, does for the best, more out of the reaction.
    Thanks for sharing this great Info.

    The one example I can remember is of my gold chain that I almost lost at my bro’s wedding. To my surprise, after digging the whole house and the box where I felt I had left it for thousand times, I found it in the same box 3 days later…. I am still puzzled about that vanishing act of my chain.

    Corinne, I’m hearing about the Law of Abundance for the first time but I have experienced this many times in my life.

    Glad that the ring came back (I’m thinking of The Lord of the Rings now)

    Joy always,

    So glad that you got the ring back! Letting Go is not an easy thing to do (may be one learns to do so with practice), but once it is done, things, situations become much simpler and happier!

    Definitely the law of abundance at work and generous thoughts. My favourite mantra is “Go with the flow, be Zen, and let it go”. So glad you found the ring.

    I love stories like this! I have had several similar experiences. As soon as I let go of something, it turns up. Most recently, I had lost a watch my mother gave me. The clasp was loose and I thought I lost it while I was out walking. I looked everywhere and retraced my steps all over the neighborhood several times. I asked store clerks if someone had turned the watch in to their lost and found. No luck. I gave up and let it go. Hours later, I was outside and I felt something fall to the ground. There it was.

    Glad you found the ring! Hmm… did it travel all the way home by itself?! LOL!!! I’m really touched by your attitude and the concept of the law of abundance. That is truly wonderful!

    Glad you guys found the ring and I would definitely chalk that up to the law of abundance. By letting go and knowing that you were okay with it helped you find it and really, it’s the full meaning of what it represented that truly helped I believe.

    I’ve tried that a few times myself Corinne with no luck at all. Huh, wonder if that meant it wasn’t meant to be. Oh well, those items really weren’t important.

    Have a fabulous 2013.

    lovely. i think it’s good to experience ‘letting go’ of things we think are crucial to our happiness sometimes. it keeps us flexible. wonderful that you had that liberating experience and also got the ring back, too! win/win!

  20. Vishnu Vishnu January 4, 2013

    I’ve had the same experiences Corrine – when we let go of something, it comes back to us. And if it wasn’t meant for us, it won’t come back. haha The universe has a funny way of working things out – it’s own intelligence. If we can let the universe lead us (to going for walks or vacuuming 🙂 and get out of the way, we’ll probably lead wiser lives and allow the laws of the universe to bring more of what’s right for us into our lives. congrats on the find!

    Your willingness to let go is an inspiration to me… I tend to fret too long over things lost. Perhaps I need to take your attitude.

    I am glad he got his ring back. I am frantic when I misplace mine. I think that your kind heart was rewarded. I like to think the way you do about money, or food (people have taken my lunch from the fridge at work a number of times, so I figure they need it more than me..) When I lost my first husband, I thought I was lucky to have had a great marriage. Some never can say that, so I didn’t expect to find love again, but I did and am now happily remarried. I think being “open” brings things into your life.

  23. UmaS UmaS January 4, 2013

    Many times Corinne…the situations changed from bad to good, when I let Go !!! Its amazing and its always worked!!
    Am glad you found the ring 🙂

    the law of abundance or the law of surrender? I’m not sure but I’m glad you were persistent and found the ring.

  25. Martha Orlando Martha Orlando January 4, 2013

    The Law of Abundance . . . What a wonderful thing to experience, knowing we can be grateful for what we DO have, not longing for what we don’t. So glad you all found the ring, though. I know I would be sad if Danny or I lost ours.
    Blessings and love, Corinne!

      Gratitude is certainly a large part of abundance – it’s amazing that the more grateful we are, the more we seem to find things to be grateful for! 🙂 Yes, we’re happy to have found the ring too, Martha6

    I really don’t know about law of abundance…but, yes, this has happened to me in relationships I had given up on.

    • Corinne Rodrigues Corinne Rodrigues January 4, 2013

      I’ve seen it happen with relationships too, Janaki. Only they didn’t come back – other people came into my life.
