Love Jones for Chicago
I have to share this story with other believers and like minded people who have been inspired by The Secret and the law of attraction.
I created a vision board on 1.1.11 on Oprah’s website. As you may know or for some of you that may not know, a vision board provides a visual of the words or images of the people, places, things or feelings you want to manifest in your life. On my vision board I have images/words of optimal health, money coming towards me from four different directions, happiness, peace, places I want to visit, soul mate, two homes, career in medicine, family..etc. One picture in particular is very meaningful to me. It is a picture of a particular scene in a movie I absolutely love called Love Jones. The movie is about a couple meeting each other, that initial attraction, love when you’re not looking for it, trials and tribulations of relationships and the very powerful emotion of love that prevails and withstands all. For me this movie symbolizes meeting your soul mate which is why it is on my vision board.
Now here is where the rabbit hole gets deeper!!! Four months ago, a friend of mine invited me to go to Chicago and I said YES!! For me, that is major because I’ve been a single parent since the age of 18 and ALL of my ALL has been and still is about raising beautiful, intelligent young ladies. The youngest of my two daughters graduated from high school last month and will be attending college in September. To celebrate I decided for the first time to say YES to me!!! This mini vacay to Chicago was the first vacation I’ve taken since being a parent and it was long overdue!! Dubai and Egypt being my ultimate dream vacations which are on my vision board, I didn’t view Chicago as being a desirable destination for myself but nevertheless I needed to do something for myself.
So in the interim of planning for this vacation to Chicago it occurred to me that the movie Love Jones was made in Chicago and I thought to myself WOW, things are manifesting on my vision board without any effort on my part. Because again, Love Jones represents for me finding my soul mate, the man the Creator made for me!!!! So off to Chicago I go with the thought WOW, this vision board is really working.
Needless to say I had the most awesome beautiful time in Chicago, beautiful city and the architecture is a phenom in itself. BEAUTIFUL!!! As I was sitting on the plane preparing for take off going back to New Jersey with a huge smile inward and outward something else occurred to me. While I was attending an event in Chicago (The Taste of Chicago, food festival), I saw from a distance water shooting in the air, assumed it was a fountain and had to see it up close. Naturally as a tourist you take pictures. My friends and I took some beautiful pictures in front of this water fountain, thought nothing else about it at the time besides it was simply a beautiful water fountain. Well, it occurred to me while preparing for take off that the scene that I had on my vision board from Love Jones, the leading man and woman, characters Nina and Darius were on a date and were walking in front of this EXACT SAME WATER FOUNTAIN!!!
The thought of this made me feel so good because nothing is a coincidence, again, let me reiterate, Chicago was not a desired destination, nor once I did arrive there, me finding this water fountain. I did not know the name of this fountain nor did I have an interest to. It manifested because of my deep love for this movie and what it represents for me and simply because the Love Jones scene with the water fountain in the “BACKGROUND” is on my vision board.
I’m here to tell you that the law of attraction is AS real as this very experience you may be feeling by reading my story. I’m loving my life right now just knowing that all possibilities are real, whatever I want I can have, will have. Just think if I can attract something as minor as a water fountain in the background of a picture to me then I can attract the major things that I want in my life.
My fellow believers, be patient, be grateful, be determined and the deepest desires of your heart will come to you as the Buckingham Fountain in Chicago came to me.
