My MAMAs Miracle!
I’d like to share with you one of my many manifestations. This one was so incredible it left me with goosebumps. It’s somewhat of a long story but I’ll try summarize it as best as I can without losing any of it’s magic.
I’m South African and I absolutely love African music, particularly music from West Africa. The MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs) were going to be held in my city of Durban this year and would see some of my favorite African Artists descend into my little coastal town for the awards. Not to mention international stars Neyo and Jhene Aiko. This meant that I would be seeing the likes of D’Banj, Yemi Alede, Flavour, Diamond Platnumz, Don Jazzy, Sauti Sol and Patoranking live on stage. From the day the announcement was made I was filled with a fever pitch excitement.
Unfortunately due to being crazy busy at work and also being somewhat broke, I left buying the tickets to the awards till the week of the awards. The previous year’s tickets had been on sale right up to the day of the awards so I wasn’t too worried about getting tickets. Unfortunately, the tickets sold out the Thursday before the award ceremony so when I tried to purchase tickets on the Friday and Saturday, all outlets told me they were sold out. I was crushed. I had been looking forward to this for weeks and it appeared that my dream of being at the awards would not come true.
It was in my moment of despair and through the tears that I remembered The Secret. Having been a firm believer in the LOA and having several successful manifestations in the past, I knew this was the only way I was going to the awards.
I instantly tried to stop feeling sad about the situation and began to feel grateful that I was attending the MAMAs. It was difficult I must say, especially when every single avenue I tried to get tickets led to a dead-end. I had an outfit made for the awards and so I went to fetch it, still without tickets. I decided to play a game with myself to generate the feelings of having the tickets. As I drove, every time I saw a street sign, I would mention one thing I was grateful for about the awards and end with the magical words “Thank you, thank, you”. For example, “I’m so grateful that I’m seeing Favour N’abania perform later this evening. Thank you, thank you, thank you”. I really focused on feeling good and getting excited that I was seeing all my favourite artists that night.
After trying several avenues unsuccessfully, I decided my best bet was to go to the venue where the awards were being held really early and try buy resale tickets. I couldn’t wait so I went to the venue at about 2 pm. The awards were scheduled to start at 6 pm.
Naturally there was nobody there selling tickets. I felt a pang in my heart when I saw a buzz of activity around the venue in preparation for the awards that night. I asked anyone I saw standing around if they had tickets to sell but none were to be found. I resolved to go home, change into my awards outfit and come back around 4:30 pm to again try find some resale tickets. At this point, I’d prayed, practiced gratitude and had myself convinced that I would get tickets.
I walked back to my car and once inside I decided to call a friend I was supposed to go with, to tell her that I hadn’t been able to get tickets. As I’m sitting in my car talking to her on the phone, I notice a guy come out of the venue carrying a white envelope with the MAMAs stamp on it. I watch him walk to the car parked in front of me. He was also on the phone, so he didn’t drive away right away. Something inside me, something I can’t explain, told me to approach him, a random stranger, and ask for tickets. There was nothing so say that what was in the envelope were MAMA tickets but I quickly ended the call, got out my car and approached him as he ended his call. This is literally how the conversation went:
Me : Hi, did I see you carrying MAMAs tickets? PLEEEEEASSE can you sell me one.
Him: Eish, the thing is, these tickets are for other people.
Me: Please oh please, can you sell me just one. Pleeeeaaaase?!!!
Him: They’re complimentary. I didn’t pay for them so I can’t sell them to you.
Me: I really don’t care that you didn’t pay for them, I’m willing to pay you for one.
He looked like he was thinking very hard as I flashed him my best “please pity me” smile. He proceeded to reach into his backseat and grabbed 2 tickets and hands them to me and says that I can have them for free!!!
Yes, free!!! I almost knocked him over as I hugged him! Can I again remind you that this is a complete stranger! He did not seem too phased by what had just happened. He then drives away and I literally skip to my car, get inside and scream at the top of my lungs. That was one of the happiest moments of my life. If that isn’t a miracle I don’t know what is.
I went to the awards that night and it was amazing!! I even managed to hold hands with my celeb crush Favour N’abania.
Gratitude is a very powerful tool. Being able to generate genuine feelings of gratitude for something before you have it is one of the most powerful manifestation tools we have at our disposal.
Thank you to Rhonda and her team for sharing this knowledge with us. Happy manifesting everyone!
