The Power Of Believing And Letting Go.
Thank you very much to Rhonda and her team for introducing the principles of the law of attraction in the simplest way possible. This has really changed my life. I’m much more positive ever since I read The Secret book and also watched the movie.
This story is about how I manifested a one-year multiple entry Schengen visa. I’m a Ph.D. student living in the UK, and I was invited to attend two academic conferences in Europe, one in Switzerland and the other one in the Netherlands. I had applied to The French embassy in the past had been given 6-month multiple entries. However, when I applied to the other countries before, I was given a visa only for the duration of my travel. This time I was more keen on getting multiple entries for 6 months at least but I didn’t really want a visa for just the duration of the visit. Both the conferences were almost 2 months apart and so, I was worried that I might have to pay for the visa fee again in case I got the visa only to visit the first conference.
I decided to apply to the French embassy again. While I had some confidence that I would get a 3-6 month multiple entry visa again, my friend told me this would not be the case with my situation this time. My current UK visa expires in Oct. and I was told this might affect the duration stamped on my Schengen visa. Most of my friends said that I would be given a visa only for the duration of the trip or at the most 3 months but definitely not more than 3 months. Moreover, though I had sufficient money to show as my bank balance, it was not big enough to convince them to give out a long-term visa.
I read a lot of stories here on the power of believing and letting go. I gathered the courage to apply to the French embassy again and told the Universe and the beloved God I pray to, Shirdi Sai, that I should be granted at least 3 or 6 months and not for just the duration of the first conference. I filed my application and said, “I’m sure you are going to do wonders and bless me with six-month multiple entries”. I started doing verbal affirmations to myself. I felt immense happiness and gratitude during these verbal affirmations. As I went on with the affirmations for some time, I started really believing that I was getting the visa for 6 months to one year.
While the visa application was in process, some of my friends who applied were only issued either for the duration of their travel or for 3 months. Even when I heard these scary stories, the affirmations that I repeated made me really believe I would get my long term visa. I started planning for travel to other countries and was browsing for reasonable flights and accommodation options for my future trips. While I was visualizing this travel, it really got me excited and I was always able to feel the happiness that the travel planning gave me.
The visa process took almost ten days. When the passport arrived and I opened it, I couldn’t believe it. I was granted my visa for a year!!
During the process, my verbal affirmations really got me believing in my desire and I felt immense happiness. I believed in it and I let it go, let go of any doubts and any negative thoughts. I had no doubts about getting for a short term at all since I filed my application. I remained very positive in those ten days while the visa application was in process so I believe in asking and letting go.
To stay positive and do affirmations as they drive you to believe that you are manifesting it.
Sprinkling love and magic to you all. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Happy manifestations!
