Can’t Believe It Happened To Me!
I still am not able to believe, and still am dancing with joy. Gosh…. THANK YOU UNIVERSE .. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!
Okay so here is how it goes, sorry if I make it lengthy but I am just too thrilled at the moment and I want everyone to discover what I just discovered !!!!
I went for my zumba class on Saturday(11th May 2013) at the library. On the way I dumped few items at the community recycle dumpster. When I got back home, I saw I did not have my ring in my finger. GOSH… I freaked out… The ring mean’t a lot to me. It was given to me by my mother, who sold off some of her gold to get me that ring. I freaked out at first. And then I went back to the same way I went to the library, scanning the road with my husband. I was so sad and unhappy as I was walking the road, but I thought I would find it in the library, as I might have dropped it while dancing. I reached the library. I went to the dance room and scanned it all. No signs of my ring. I then met the library staff and asked if the cleaning staff would come on Sunday. They said Yes, and told me that they would ask the cleaning staff to look for my ring and asked me to come back on Sunday. I had another fear – Did I drop the ring in the dumpster? Gosh…Those were the community recycle dumpsters belonging to the San Diego City folks and they had big locks on them and it said “It is illegal to remove anything from here”. The dumpster had a phone number and I called the number but it said that the office was closed and I needed to call back on Monday. I was like – Oh no, What if they empty out the dumpster on the weekend?? But I didn’t have a choice, so I went back home and looked for my ring everywhere at my home – every nook and corner. And when I couldn’t find it, I was all sad and burst into tears and cried and cried for my ring. My husband consoled me and said its okay we will try and get another one, but I was like no, I want that same ring back. I want my ring back. After much of crying I slept and then woke up and then I realized. I have been reading The Secret, The Magic and The Power. Why do I not try that? It was hard but, I tried to forget about my ring and looked forward to a Birthday Party that I had to go to. I went there and had a lot of FUN !!!!! I started thinking of how my ring felt in my finger. I started kissing my ring in my imagination. I started feeling the coldness of the gold when I would really touch it.
Sunday came, and I went to the library to ask if they had found my ring. But NO, they did not. I felt sad for sometime, but again. Got back to believing and feeling. I consciously tried to feel how it felt when I held it. How the green stone would look when exposed to the sun. I had a red religious thread tied around that ring. I started to feel that thread.
Monday came, I called the City of San Diego Environmental Services Dept. I got a call from a lady from the Environmental Services Dept. and she heard my story and said she would have to check if the dumpster has been serviced or not. If it has, then they must have dumped everything onto the city recycling facility and it would not be possible to look for a tiny thing as a ring. But I held on to my belief that she would call me back saying that it has not been serviced yet. So, I did get a call from her saying , it was to be serviced today, but for some reason it had not been serviced yet and so she asked them to hold it for today and they would do it tomorrow. I was so happy to hear that and my belief strengthened and my faith planted more deeply. To make my never ending story short, finally after many phone calls and a lot of help from people, they opened the dumpster for me (something so unusual for the city offices) and I actually looked inside it for my ring. ALL THE TIME IN MY HEART I BELIEVED I WOULD FIND MY RING. I had thought of how I would celebrate on finding my ring. I called my husband as I would need his help to get in the dumpster. So he helped me and we both looked in the dumpster – something I never thought I would do in life. Getting inside a dumpster in broad daylight , that too at a public place. You must be thinking I found my ring !!! But NO, My ring wasn’t there. For a moment I got disappointed. And also a little shocked that “WHAT??? BUT I REALLY BELIEVED THAT I WOULD FIND, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MAGIC, THE SECRET ETC ETC… ” Such thoughts came to my mind, because I had already given gratitude to the Universe for getting my ring back, and I did it with all my HEART !!!
But AGAIN, I controlled my thoughts. I thought no, I will find my ring. So what, dumpster is not the only place. They UNIVERSE can get it to me from anywhere. My husband told me “I am so sorry that we did not find your ring” and I said “Don’t be sorry. I am not. I know I will get my ring back.”
I came back home, happy and still with gratitude and considering the dumpster thing as an exciting adventure without regrets. MY husband left for work. And I called back all the city offices people, who helped me in the process to get this unusual thing done, to express my GRATITUDE.
And I sat down to treat myself, I said “I am still going to celebrate as I had thought I would”. Just as I sat down to celebrate. I got a call from my husband.
He sounded so excited and said “you won’t believe what just happened”. I was like “What?”. He said ” I started driving and since, it was hot, I opened the window panes and suddenly a strong wind blew and flew off my parking ticket and it got stuck at the joint of the car seat, where the seat and the back rest meet. And when I was trying to get my ticket out, my hand touched something like metal and I pulled it out and IT WAS YOUR RING.
I was like “WHAT????????????” I SCREAMED AT THE TOP OF MY VOICE. I COUDN’T BELIEVE IT” WOOOOOWWWWWW….. SO THIS WORKS, IT IS TRUE… I GOT MY RING BACK. I AM STILL SINKING INTO THIS FEEING AND CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT JUST HAPPENED. BUT I AM SO HAPPY AND EXCITED AND SO GLAD TO KNOW THAT I HAVE REALLY FOUND THE SECRET, THE MAGIC AND THE POWER. LIFE NOW APPEARS TO BE FULL OF POSSIBILITIES.
I again called the city folks people to say that I found my ring, and they were all so happy for me !
I am really grateful to Rhonda for giving the world The Secret. I am really grateful to M (not writing the full name for I haven seeked any permissions for disclosing anyone’s name) from City of San Diego Environmental Services Dept for helped me with getting all permissions for the dumpster diving 🙂 I am really grateful to R from Allied Waste Services who helped me throughout the process and got the dumpster opened for me and who said the MAGIC WORDS “I WISH THE RING JUST TURNS OUT FOR YOU” 🙂
I am really grateful for the San Diego Rec. Centre for giving the permission to dive into their dumpster. I am really grateful to my husband for helping me in the ring hunt and finally finding it for me. I am really grateful to the Mira Mesa Public Library staff who helped me find my ring in the library. I am really grateful to myself for BELIEVING. And FINALLY, I am so grateful to the Universe for receiving and accepting my gratitude and belief and arranging and moving things to get me to my ring 🙂
FINALLY ALL I WOULD SAY IS “JUST BELIEVE, EVEN WHEN YOU CAN’T SEE ANY REASON TO BELIEVE” and the Universe will show the MAGIC 🙂
