How I Learned To Let Go Of The ”How” Process.
Even though I knew that I’d attracted things before and I could use visualization, affirmations and manifestations, I still had a bit of a trouble with letting go, especially the ”how” part. I always thought that I had to do something to get what I want, that I have to ”help” the Universe, even if I knew that this is not the part of my Creative Process.
This month, the Universe gave me a ground-breaking lesson of letting go. It’s as if The Universe finally snapped and thought ”That’s it, I’m going to shock the lady so much she’s going to have no choice but to let go!”
So let me just say that my favorite band is from Asia and almost never performs to Europe. The last time they were in Europe was in 2012 and it wasn’t even a real performance, they were judges during a dance contest. Since then, I thought that the only way for me to see them live was to save money for years in order to go to Asia. To see them there, somewhere at the back of the concert hall because I would only be able to afford the cheapest ticket.
But the reality isn’t as dark as pessimists make it look. On Friday, November 27th, out of nowhere, I found out that on December 5th not only was my favorite band confirmed to perform in Europe, but they were to perform in Czech Republic. I’m from Poland, and Czech Republic is our neighbor country. And, the tickets were for free!! I was so shocked, it was completely unexpected and I actually got more than I had ever wished for! I was determined to get those tickets and I was ready to do whatever it takes to see my favorite band live.
However, on Saturday, LiveNation confirmed that yes, the tickets were for free, but due to the huge interest, they can be only won through a contest. The winners were going to be informed about the win on Sunday, shortly after 4 pm. I really hate contests and for a second, my confidence went incredibly low, but then I thought ”No, I’m going to get those tickets!!”
So I entered the contest and printed my own manifestation ticket, inspired by The Secret’s Magic Check. I wrote my name on it, the date of the concert and the name of my favorite band. Every day I held it in my hands and visualized myself having fun at the show, singing with my favorite band and thanking the Universe for this incredible experience. I tried to make my visualization as real and exciting as possible and I was really happy during my visualizations.
Sunday came but no e-mail confirmation. It was 4 pm and I was pins and needles. I could see other fans writing posts about having won the tickets and I sat at my desk, trying not to lose my faith and hope although I started to feel disappointed. I started thinking ”What am I doing wrong?”, but the second I had that thought, I would shake my head and tried to keep a positive attitude. I still held my fake ticket in my hand and visualized myself at that show.
When I almost lost hope, a thought popped up in my head. I have a blog on Tumblr and I thought to search the tag of the concert, to see if someone from another country wrote something about the show. So I scrolled through the tag and I found one post, written by a girl from Hungary, in which she admitted to miraculously have won 4 tickets! The winner could only win 2 tickets so how did she win 4 tickets? She didn’t know herself. But I wrote a message to her, asking her if she could give me 2 tickets. She said, ”I’m going to ask my friends to come with me, but if they’re not allowed, then I will give them to you. I’ll let you know on Monday.”
Monday came, time went by, hour after hour and I was so nervous I barely registered eating dinner. I got no message from her for the whole day and at 8 pm, just when I was about to say ”Oh, forget it!”, she texted me on Facebook, ”Hey! I sent you the e-mail with 2 tickets! See you on Friday.”
When I realized what happened, I started crying. I don’t know what made me happier, the fact that I was going to see my favorite band or the fact that I clearly, obviously manifested what I wanted! I got the tickets in a most unexpected way! I had a very limited conviction that I would only get the tickets by winning them in the contest. I thought about asking someone to give me the extra ticket, but I was usually too late and I wasn’t the only desperate person wanting a ticket. And to make it all even more incredible, the girl that gave me the tickets rarely visits her blog! She hasn’t been on her blog since our last conversation! Which can only mean one thing; I attracted her.
As unbelievable as it sounds, I honestly believe that somehow, The Universe made her win 4 tickets in order to give me those 2 tickets. My dream of seeing my idols came true in a way I had never imagined! It’s all so amazing I still can’t believe it. I have never thanked The Universe so zealously before. I thanked so much I cried, because yes, it showed me that the ”how” isn’t my job at all.
Now the ”how” part doesn’t stress me anymore, it actually makes me excited. I’m excited to see how The Universe is going to deliver my dreams to me. I’m excited to know that my goals will be delivered in a magical way that everyone around me will scratch their heads in astonishment, thinking ”My god, how was that possible?”
Now when I ask The Universe, I add jokingly ”OK, Universe, go on, impress a lady.” So yes, everything is possible and The Universe works in ways we can’t imagine. When you think something’s impossible, let The Universe impress you.
