My story began a little more than a year ago when I found myself in the midst of the hardest situation I have ever faced in my life. I had received my calling to pursue a specific career path but wasn’t in the position to do so as this was a very competitive field, and by competition I mean 7 people being chosen out of 300-500 applicants. I had just graduated from my undergrad and dreamed of pursuing higher education in an IVY league school. This was my deepest and most sincere desire, one that came from within the heart and the soul, my dream.
I faced almost every possible obstacle one could think of. I ran into the wrong kind of people, every door seemed to close on me, felt alone with minimal help and guidance as to how I would pursue my dream. And to top it all off, was in an abusive relationship with a guy whom I thought loved me but was just playing games.
But it was not all bad.
After I read almost every Rhonda Byrne book; The Secret, The Power, The Magic and Hero which gave me a lot of strength and courage, I started practising the Law of Attraction.
After all, why not?! There is nothing to lose when all you see is people fulfilling their dreams by applying this in their lives?! If anything, it will at least make you feel better. And that’s exactly what happened.
I was on a path filled with fear, self doubt, anxiety, confusion and uncertainty and was determined to transform this into a positive path of hope, love, faith and freedom where I pictured and visualised myself having already accomplished my dream and finding myself in a relaxed, stable, clear and certain position. With a positive state of mind and removing the word ‘fear’ from my dictionary, I went and visited the school and the professor I was interested in. I did not plan these things but took every opportunity I found to create my own new doors. By the end of our conversation, the professor looked at me right before I left her office and assured me that we would keep in touch. These precious words resonated in my ears and sounded like magic to me.
After this I walked through the campus, the buildings, the city and pictured myself already being a part of it. It was the most beautiful feeling ever!! When I returned home, I took a picture of the school and stuck it in my closet with my picture on top of it as if I was part of the school, and below the picture, I wrote the word ‘Accepted’ into the program of my choice. I kissed this picture every morning and every night and thanked the universe for fulfilling my wish.
As the months and days passed by I started hearing from other schools that were my 2nd, 3rd and 4th choices. I had still not heard back from my first choice, the IVY league school.
I decided to continue to do what I was doing and not give up hope or assume the unnecessary until I received that final letter of outcome. Meanwhile, I accepted my acceptance into the 4th school of choice and regardless of how it was, I remained humble and grateful for what I had received. By now, I had still not heard from the IVY league school and they did not even call me for an interview. I had every reason to believe that I was rejected. But I refused to do so and kept wishing upon that star!
Finally the day had come, the same week I found my soul mate and a the following tuesday after my dog had left me for heaven. As if my little baby had gone up and done some magic. I received an email from the school and I ran downstairs where I had kept my laptop. I felt nervous from outside but at peace from within, like I knew what was coming.
The letter said: ‘I am pleased to inform you that due to your exemplary background you have been ACCEPTED into…’. OMG OMG OMG I had done it!!!
Everything that I could imagine had come true!!! I always wondered what success felt like and how people feel when dreams come true and here I was present in ‘my own dream coming true’ moment. I was filled with tears of endless joy, gratitude and love. I had met some really kind and unbelievably generous and selfless people, the so called heroes in my journey, when I decided to step on the positive path of hope, love and freedom and overcame the negative cycle I found myself in. I realised that in order to achieve one’s full potential and fulfill one’s dreams one must absolutely believe in the power of his/her dream, do the best one can, then surrender. The outcome isn’t in our hands but the effort certainly is and all the gratitude, love and belief that one puts into one’s dream will show one the way and open doors or bring one to people you could have never imagined.
The world is indeed filled with beauty, wonder and love!!!
Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!
I wish abundance, beauty and fulfillment of one’s deepest desires for everyone’s lives.
