Day 225, Reason 225: Today I am so happy and very grateful that going for my blood test turned out just the way I had intended! 🙂
This morning, I woke up with a flutter of anxiety in my stomach in anticipation of my appointment for a blood test.
It’s not the actual blood test that worries me – I’ve had so many of them throughout my life, that I’m a seasoned pro by now – it’s the feeling really lousy afterwards that I dread. I have super low blood pressure and often feel very faint and wobbly – a feeling that can last for days afterwards.
But, as I cleaned my teeth this morning, I remembered something I had read in an Abraham-Hicks book about pre-paving. Basically, pre-paving means visualising or imagining how you’d like a situation to go ahead of time.
Pre-paving is really useful for 2 reasons:
Firstly, it puts positive vibes out into the Universe, therefore it works with the law of attraction to help bring the things you intend into your experience.
Secondly, it’s a form of brain rehearsal, which helps to put yourself in the best possible mindset to deal with whatever it is you have to deal with. In my case, a blood test.
I also added gratitude into the equation, giving thanks out loud for how great it all went… BEFORE I had even left the house.
Here’s a sneaky peek into my pre-paving thoughts:
Wasn’t it wonderful how we (my Mum was driving me) easily found somewhere to park right outside the clinic?
And how amazing that there was no one else in the clinic and I didn’t have to wait at all.
Oh and it was great that the nurse happily let me add some extra tests I wanted done to the prescription from the doctor, even though it’s not strictly allowed.
And THANK YOU Universe that I didn’t feel a thing during the test, and not only that, but I felt pretty good afterwards. 🙂
So, you can imagine my complete and utter amazement when we easily found a parking space right outside in the shade, there was not one single person in the clinic so I didn’t have to wait at all and the nurse let me add some more tests to my prescription without batting an eyelid.
And the very best thing is that today there was a new nurse taking the blood, who was not only very kind but also REALLY gentle and I literally didn’t feel a thing. Yippee!
AND afterwards, well afterwards I felt just fine. In fact, I even managed to go into the shopping centre with my Mum on the way home, whereas normally I’d have to sit and wait in the car.
Nothing short of miraculous! 🙂
