Actions Are Key!
I used to dwell on this page as a hope for inspiration as I had a lot of issues with faith. I knew about the law of attraction since I was a pre-teen and applied it to a lot of things.
In high school you could say my life was great. I used it to get many academic achievements. I had a good group of friends and a boyfriend outside of school. However, since coming to uni, my life flipped upside down. I applied for vet school with high hopes of getting in. I also had a long distance relationship. During the semester holidays, my boyfriend and I broke up due to trust issues and you could say he completely broke my heart. I grew depressed, my grades dropped and I got rejected from vet school. I was so angry and depressed as I saw myself as a failure. I gave my power away to other people. I got used by others and I grew suicidal because I hated my direction and place in life.
This year I vowed to start different. My ex got a new girlfriend and I wanted to start my life again. The beginning of this year started good and I used the law of attraction to attract grades and a new partner. However, I attracted nothing but people who were wrong for me and eventually I gave in with frustration.
I came across a book ‘Leveraging The Universe’ by Mike Dooley. Using this along with The Secret, I worked hard every day. I held out on a new crush for three days, and on the third my crush came over and talked to me at the library. That night, he invited me over and we hung out. I couldn’t believe it! However, it was hard to maintain communication. We grew apart and never really talked after that. I thanked for the opportunity and I moved on.
My flatmates and I had a party one night and I met this boy who I instantly liked. We hung out that night but again, grew distant over time. Then our friend groups started mixing and we hung out more. For two months we were awkward and brief and I didnt know if the Universe was finally delivering my new boyfriend. Two weeks ago, he asked me out on a date after saying he doesn’t want a relationship. I was so shocked because I took life too seriously and didnt realise things can change in a heartbeat. We hung out every day, we were inseparable! Then he admitted he didn’t want to lose me and asked me to be his girlfriend one day in my room. It all happened so fast. In addition, I did amazing on my exams in such little time.
But how and why did it all happen so fast?
I asked for what I wanted and made a ‘contract’ with the Universe. I would be grateful every day, meditate and go out and do things I would need to do to achieve my goals. If I acted every day like this consistently, the Universe would do its part and give me what I wanted; the right circumstance, people, faith and results. I went to the doctor and checked something I had been postponing for a long time. I would sleep on one side of the bed. I would go to the library and study productively. Change came fast.
Looking back, I wanted everything for the wrong reasons. I wanted a partner because I was lonely, I wanted good grades because I had low self esteem. Change only came when I was willing to change, and I wanted what I wanted with clarity. Now I understand why that period of my life never worked out, and I hope this helps whoever is reading this reflect on their mindsets and actions and adjust them to the direction they want to be in.
Thank you to The Secret and the Universe!
