The Magic Brought the Perfect Job to Me!
Hi, everyone! I want to say thank you to all for inspiring me all the time, and I will get right into my very long story!
Like many of you, I have known about The Secret for a long time and used it to attract things over time, and I definitely have a life to be happy about! I was just finishing up my degree from a very prestigious undergraduate school, crediting my admission to The Secret. I had a very specific interest in an area of research which I so badly wanted to focus on in a job after graduation to gain experience and get published in some papers before I apply to graduate school in a few years.
With The Secret, I would write down every day at least 10 things I was happy about that day before I went to bed and I attracted many amazing interviews at the best places! I knew I had a desirable resume and education in the field, but for some reason after a few interviews with places, I would never hear back. Although it had only been about 4-6 weeks in my quest to get a job, the beginning of May came along, meaning there were only 3 weeks until I graduated and I had no plans. While I knew I was qualified and a desirable candidate, I became very anxious as I had no plans yet.
As fate would have it, I went with my friend to a bookstore one day to study before finals and I was roaming around the store. I came across The Magic. Now, I knew I owned it and read the practices, but had forgotten about it really. I picked up the book and decided to scroll through it and realized, this is what I need to do!
I will spare you the details of all the small things I manifested (many dollars in graduation gifts, discovery of savings bonds given to me at birth that were worth a few thousand dollars, purses, etc.), I just did the first two practices every night: I would type out each day 10 things I was so happy and so grateful for and why, and would hold a Magic Rock and think about the best part of my day. I would always have as part of that list, “I am so happy and so grateful that my dream job found me!” That was all!
One day I randomly decided to apply to a lot of places at amazing institutions that had posted positions a long time ago, on the off chance that maybe their positions had not been filled yet. This was the day after I graduated, on a Saturday. I thought nothing of these applications, as I was not emotionally set on getting them and really just applied because I had the cover letter ready and it was so easy.
That Monday I received two emails within about 10 minutes of each other from the best place in the country for my field: one inviting me to do many interviews with numerous doctors in the field, and another saying that they were about to hire someone, but wanted to talk to me as they are very interested.
I interviewed with the one the very next day, and they were so excited to have me they implied that if I let them know that I wanted the position, it would be mine! I had no idea that the job I mindlessly applied to would be absolutely everything I wanted in a position. I know HR takes some time to finalize offers, and on the second day without hearing from them I started to get nervous as I had not received a phone call. A holiday weekend was coming up, and I kept thinking how great it would be if I could get the official offer before then. Wouldn’t you know, Thursday I opened my e-mail and found an offer! I got my dream job on day 22 of doing the first two of The Magic practices, and I put almost no effort in! Best of all, they are so thrilled to have me and I start in a few weeks! Everything came together so nicely, and I could not be happier!
My advice: when I focused too much, I became really aware of the “lack” and got very nervous, which slowed everything down. I wanted a formula to just get everything perfectly, but the reality is, I didn’t know what I wanted so specifically, so don’t force it! One thing I found hard was when I wanted to “let go”, I was torn as to whether or not I should continue to search/apply to positions online. I found that if I went online and felt in a zone/focused, I should continue searching, if I felt anxiety or frustration, I should go do something else.
I hope this is encouraging to someone looking for a job or just trying to manifest something in their life! I know these helped me when I felt worried or sad about my current state, but just know that if you busy yourself with other matters and follow your feelings, you will get what you want! I had such expectations about where I wanted to be, when, etc., but the reality is that the actual job that came to me is in a much better facility for my career and interests, and the opportunities there are going to be SO much better than in the original city I had set my hopes on!
Thank you, thank you, thank you all!!!!
