I picked up Sonia Choquette's 'Ask Your Guides' as a little light reading the other day. I like her easy going style that still contains a lot of wisdom. I was reminded that we don't always need to have huge issues to ask for help and that you can ask to be assisted in life whenever you want. I had a number of things to sort out on the practical financial front, so I asked if there was a helper that was willing to guide me to the right people and places to get the best deals. A 'spiritual bargain hunter'.
My mobile phone contract was nearly up, my contract phone had broken about six months ago & I bought a very cheap phone to see me through the remaining months. Unfortunately the cheap phone wasn't nearly as easy for me to use as the previous phone and every text was a painstaking endeavour. I wanted to see what my mobile phone company could offer me now. I called them, imagining I'd have to bargain & sound like I was close to leaving. Funnily enough I was put through to another 'Lauren' who was very nice (all Lauren's seem to be, but perhaps I'm biased!) Immediately she offered me a very nice new phone for no extra cost and slashed my monthly payments by more than half- in fact my monthly payments are now half the minimum amount advertised on the site and include unlimited texts & free minutes! I hadn't expected that one- thank you to my bargain hunter guide for being swift to my assistance!
