I met One Direction!
Sorry it’s so long, but it’s worth reading! I truly believe this was the secret!
To start off I have to thank The Secret, the Universe, and my wonderful older sister has always been a huge believer in The Secret even when I was sKeptical. She made me believe and helped the secret work for me!
I have been a massive fan of the boyband One Direction ever since they appeared on The X Factor in Autumn 2010! That was over 2 years ago now and I have never stopped being dedicated to them – I’ve been there throughout their journey to the top, where they are now!
The story of meeting them starts back in 2011 when my mum found out that an elderly lady from my town was related to Niall Horan, the Irish member of the band!
At Christmas 2011 she gave me a signed photo of the boys and I went to see them in concert in 2012 again.
The tickets for their 2013 tour were released in early 2012, and I got tickets for 2 shows in Belfast and Dublin.
In 2012 at Christmas, I read the Secret and at New Year I decided my goal was to meet One Direction that year, and I had this unexplainable gut feeling that this was the year that I would meet them – I just knew it.
This year though about a month before the concert which was in March, Niall’s relative came to me and said she had gotten me, my sister and another girl from my town backstage passes to a show, I could not believe it! I was ecstatic, I have never felt so happy in my life! My sister assured me this was The Secret working for me and kept teling me to be thankful to Niall’s family for this opportunity, so I did.
The part of my story I find most striking, however, is that 3 days before the concert Niall’s relative came back to us and told us that unfortunately we would not be meeting Niall anymore as the venue couldn’t allow us backstage for practical reasons – I was heartbroken. My sister found me crying in the kitchen two nights before the show and sat with me for an hour telling me to list all of the things in my life I was thankful for, and then to tell her all of the reasons why I love One Direction. She stayed there until I was laughing and smiling through the tears and then told me to keep believing I would meet Niall, to picture it and pray to God that I would meet him and over the next two days I did that constantly. I told none of my friends what his relative had said, and they still believed I was meeting him.
Then on the night we met with his relative, his mum and stepdad and we all drove to the venue. When we went to get out tickets a member of One Direction’s crew was going to bring Niall’s mum backstage to see him – and snuck the rest of us in too! I gripped my sister’s hand so tight and I knew in my heart that this was The Secret at work – out of 10,000 people at that concert, we were the people who Niall’s family had made a connection with and brought along that night!
We were waiting outside Niall’s dressing room for him to get ready while his family went inside. While waiting, Harry Styles came out and greeted us all! He’s my favourite from the band so getting a hug was an absolute dream come true and he took picture with all of us. It was so surreal. We met Niall and got photos with him, as well as seeing all 3 other members of the band as well as their support band!
Meeting the One Direction boys was my dream for over 2 years and now it’s happened thanks to The Secret! Not only that, but I have that gut feeling that I will meet them again this year and I know it will happen as long as I keep loving them and using the secret – this is the first of many times I will meet my boys!
Thank you to The Secret, the Universe, and to my sister!
