Exercising The Power Within
I have always been a huge believer in the power of the Universe and the importance of positive thinking. I have had things manifest for me over my lifetime, but never as intentional as my latest manifestation. I had recently been practicing the believing part of the process. I feel like this is the most difficult part, to 100% believe that you will receive what you’ve asked for.
I have been a fitness instructor for about eight years. I had been wanting to increase my fitness knowledge and begin teaching yoga classes but the trainings were always so expensive. I had been lucky enough to take two separate yoga trainings, both free of charge, over the past few years. The trainings I’ve taken have given me a good base knowledge but I wanted a more intensive training to become an ever better teacher. The training I have wanted to take for over three years is extremely in depth; it’s 235 hours over the course of eight months with a world class yoga instructor. The training costs $3200. Even if I did have an extra $3200 in my account, being a single mother of two teenage boys, I could never justify spending that much money on a fitness training. I had contemplated taking out a loan or charging the fee on my credit card. In my heart, I knew that wasn’t right for me.
About four months ago I had seen yet another flyer up in my gym advertising the upcoming yoga training. The flyer had small strips of paper on the bottom for people to take with more information. When I saw the flyer I took a slip, put it in my pocket and I said to myself, “I know that I will take this training, when the time is right, the opportunity will present itself.” I didn’t know how, I didn’t try to figure out how I was going to make this happen, I just knew in my heart that I would be taking the training.
Three months after I had seen the flyer and set my intention, I was at the gym getting ready to teach a class. My boss came into my class a few minutes before the start time and asked me if the reason I had never signed up for that specific yoga training was because of cost. I explained that I had wanted to take it for years but couldn’t justify spending that much money on a training. She then told me she had a complimentary spot to give away because the woman who was supposed to receive it had quit the week before. If I agreed to be the Teacher Assistant, the spot was mine, free of charge! I was speechless, shaking, and nearly in tears. I knew I would take that training, but I never dreamed it would come to me in that manner and so quickly after I set my intention!
I am so incredibly grateful for this opportunity and can’t wait for the training and to manifest more and more into my life! Just about the time I set my intention for the yoga training I found the love of my life using the same process, but that’s a different story!!
