Like most people, I appreciate lightning staying away from where I am.
Notice this is different than saying that I don’t like lightning I am fine with it, as long as it stays away from me.
One day I was reading a book: The Diary of Saint Faustina. In the Catholic Church she is noted for The Chaplet of Divine Mercy which Jesus gave to her. Her diary has many conversations with Jesus that she transcribed. Pope John knew her, and of her, and made the Sunday after Easter, Divine Mercy Sunday.

Imagine being so sure of an outcome, that it has to happen. In fact, to you it has already happened, as you look back from the future and see it so.
This is really fun, once you get into the mood and mindset.
What does abundance mean for you in your life?
Money, health, material stuff, people.
What is it you are looking to have in your life?
Think of a magnet which has an invisible field,
Which either attracts or repels materials.
If you think of your self as a magnet
To things that you are seeking to have in your life,
Your perception of how you attract or repel things,
Is part of how this magnet works.
Thank you for allowing me meaningful work.
Work I believe in, work I am interested in.
Work that is like play for me.
I appreciate my current job, my current situation.
Let me see it in a different way.
Please bless my frustration. Show me how to relax.
I know you hear my longing for better work,
More suited to my temperament, my gifts, my interests.
I feel good about this, knowing you are arranging my right livelihood.
Beyond my awareness, people and events are happening,
I was thinking in my life I wasn’t receiving things.
And I felt stuck.
And one day, a good friend of mine called me on the phone, and as we were talking, she said, “You’re not stuck. Try this. It worked for me, and I think it will work for you too. Try saying, ‘I am always receiving.’” I thought about it, and said, “What the heck, I’ll try it and see if it works.”
So the very next day when I woke up, the very first thing I said was, “I’m always receiving.”
Whenever I am in the car, and about to enter a busy place,
I always say, "Thank you for allowing peace in the traffic."
Feel it, even a little.
Almost every single time, and I mean 100's upon 100's,
there is a gap in the traffic when I get there.
I usually see a large block of cars that have just gone by,
and another block approaching in the distance, but for me,
there is clearly a nice, wide open space, right at that moment.
I believe that everyone involved has either slowed down or
sped up, to open the gap just for me.
