The Power of Receiving
I lost my mother and single parent at the age of 17, and thought that this would be the end of my world. I have an unemployed and not-so-helpful brother who doesn’t even know where I stay at the moment, and this bothered me a lot until a cousin of mine introduced me to the book The Secret and my whole world changed for the better.
I used to cry a lot about how I was going to survive on my own since I don’t even have a home. My mother was renting a place when she died and so we were chased out after her death, and so I currently live with my cousin. I got accepted at Wits University and as much as this was a blessing to me, I didn’t really feel very grateful because I didn’t know how I was going to pay for my fees after my financial aid application had been declined. Then I read The Secret.
After reading The Secret my whole attitude towards my ‘problems’ changed. I signed The Secret cheque and started feeling like my fees were already paid, and never even worried about the monthly letters that I got from the Fees Office about outstanding fees. I continued thanking the universe for paying my fees and ignored the notices from the fees office.
I went for my winter holidays in June and when I came back at the first week of July, I just felt like going to the fees office to check my statement. When I arrived there I got the shock of my life. The consultant told me that I had to rush to the financial aid office. When I arrived there I was told that I had to sign an agreement for financial aid. A week later my fees were settled. And it was no surprise to me, because I was expecting it. I just continued thanking the universe for being on my side at all times.
A few days ago, for the first time since February, I opened an old statement from the fees office, and it was a final notice. It stated that if my fees weren’t settled by the 30th of July I would be denied access to the University and other countless threats about the actions that will be taken against me were stated. I felt so humbled by the power of believing and receiving that I just broke down and cried. Only this time it was the tears of joy.
This is just one of the many ways that the truth of the teachings of ‘The Secret’ were revealed to me.
