Gratitude Eliminates Worry!
In 2009, I started college. And from that moment, I was telling myself that I’d be in debt until the day I died, but I wanted to pursue a higher education and a degree in theater.
Through my college journey, my best friend and I watched The Secret one night during one of our movie nights. And the idea of the Law of Attraction stuck with me. So, I started to apply it. If life started to overwhelm me, I would take some time and listen to some guided meditations on YouTube. These guided meditations always focused on being thankful for everything I already had. I strongly believe that if you pulse out this feeling of gratitude, then the universe will respond by giving you more things to be thankful for. And that was always the case. Whenever I was worried about something, I would sit and change my train of thought from the negative worry thoughts to the positive thankful thoughts, and soon my problems would be resolved.
Now, here comes the big part:
I graduated in the winter of 2013 with a degree in Theater and $30,000 in debt. I was terrified, there was no way I was going to be able to pay that off. But I did what I could and pushed forward in my life. Never forgetting to stop and be thankful.
Now in the year 2015, I have received incredible news:
You know how in the movies when a long lost relative passes away and gives someone a bunch of money? Well that kind of happened to me.
Earlier in 2015, my great-grandmother (my grandfather’s mother) passed away. Apparently my great-grandfather, who passed away when I was very young, had owned well over 160 acres of land and my great-grandmother was the sole owner of that land.
After she passed away, her will stated that the land was to be sold and split between her three children. My grandfather passed away in 2003, and since then his mother and his sisters never maintained contact with our family. Since my grandfather had passed away, his portion of the money gained from the land was split between his two children, my mom and my aunt.
The 160 acres of land was appraised at $1,600,000. The land was sold, and even after all the taxes and lawyer fees, my mom and aunt are receiving $200,000 each!
This money came out of the blue for us. My absolutely incredible mother, without hesitation, is using some of this money to help pay off my student debt. My fears of being in debt for countless years has vanished instantly. My worries about being able to build a life with someone else while being in debt are gone. All I have to say is: Thank you, universe!
A word of advice to others applying the Law of Attraction. When life stresses you out, or worry and fear become almost too much to bear, step back and take a deep breath and change your mindset to gratitude. Gratitude eliminates worry, and tells the universe you’re ready to receive more things to be thankful for.
Things to be thankful for will come, seemingly, out of the blue. Don’t lose faith, and always, always be thankful.
