Pink Truck With White Polka Dots.
I am writing this story to help anyone who is still doubting the law of attraction. When I first got into The Secret I had a very hard time believing. I did what Rhonda suggested and asked for “little” things. I asked for a cup of coffee and got a cup of coffee. I went to my bank the next day and it turned out they had just added a coffee machine for customers, but surely that was just a coincidence, right?. I manifested so many “little” things, but no matter what I manifested, it always seemed like it was just meant to be there and it would have come to me regardless of whether I asked for it or not. I decided that I needed to think of something that would 100% prove that the law of attraction was true when I saw it.
Rhonda told the story of the man with a feather in the movie and book, but that wasn’t good enough for me. I’ve seen thousands if not millions of feathers throughout my life. I heard of another person asking to see a purple car, but I was sure that at some time, somewhere, I had seen a purple car. So I asked for the most ridiculous thing I could think of at the time, a pink truck with white polka dots. Who has ever seen a pink truck with white polka dots before? I knew that if I saw a pink truck with white polka dots that there could be no doubt that the law of attraction was real and that my thoughts really do create my reality. I visualized it and jumped up and down with gratitude as I imagined seeing it in real life, and then I let it go and forgot about it.
I live in New York City and subway problems are a way of life. A few days later I was taking the subway to an appointment and the subway line I was on was changed from local to express because of a stalled car ahead. So I had to get out and walk the rest of the way to my destination. As I was walking down the street I looked up as I approached an intersection, and guess what I saw?
A huge ice cream truck painted pink with white polka dots!
I couldn’t believe it! I literally started hysterically laughing and crying and jumping up and down in the middle of NYC! No one even batted an eye, we see some pretty weird stuff on the streets of New York. The Universe had brought me exactly what I asked for! I immediately took a picture of it with my phone. Now, any time I have doubts I just bring up the picture and remember that the law of attraction is real and The Universe is always working with me.
This experience has taught me a few things:
1) The Universe really can and will deliver you anything you ask for, so long as you do not resist it’s manifestation with your thoughts and feelings. I had never felt anything about pink trucks with white polka dots before or after I asked for one, so it was able to bring one to me in a matter of days.
2) Do not judge any experience too quickly. Even though at first it may seem like things are going “wrong” or “against you”, it may just be the Universe moving you towards your desires. The Universe always knows best. Trust that it wants to give you what you ask for and is always working to bring it to you.
Since then I have gone on to manifest so many things, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. I literally cannot say “thank you” enough to Rhonda Byrne, The Secret team, and all of the other amazing teachers, both past and present, who deliver this knowledge to the world and help move us to a higher vibration. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
