The Universe Never Lies!
It takes a special kind of blessing to be able to write this story. Not everyone has life experiences such as these. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be blessed by the Universe.
I have always been guided and protected by the Universe and I always used to joke to my mom that I am ‘God’s Child’. Everything always works out for me!
I did well in almost all aspects of life. The one area that the Universe asked me to keep patience and hold my faith was my love life. I was never the kind to have an idea of a dream man and did not even consider myself to be the kind to attract men. Guess what happened? I never took to liking any of the marriage proposals that came my way and none of those whom I expressed interest in, reciprocated.
This went on for 11 years.
I finally entered into a semi-relationship with a guy that I had always liked and who after initially declining interest had returned. Though I was invested in it but I had this nagging feeling that something was not right. This anxiety manifested itself with him calling off the relationship abruptly.
I am so grateful he did! It opened new avenues for me.
I hopped onto several dating apps and had some not-so-great experiences there too. I realized all these are just manifestations of my inner world so one day I decided to take matters into my own hands. I started therapy to address some known and unknown issues. I was also simultaneously talking to guys on dating apps. One day I saw a profile that held my interest. I visualized receiving a text from this person.
What happened next is where my miracle begins.
I never received a text from this person but I did receive one from an old classmate from 15 years ago. I was happy but did not think much about it. We chatted infrequently until one day I happened to mention this to a common friend who instantly patched us on a phone call. On that call, I felt a sort of connection to this old classmate, let’s call him ‘J’, that I had never felt before. It was at another level, very visceral. I once again did not give it much thought and we continued to text randomly.
A few months later J decided to meet up with me and our common friend. But again, this meeting did not materialize. I had pretty much given up hope of meeting J since he was also leaving for a trip for a long time and I did not know when he would return. On an impulse, I scripted a story of J and me and left it at that.
On the eve of his departure, our common friend called me asking me to meet up with him and J. I was taken aback, my story was coming true. I was skeptical but decided to go along to meet J.
I will never forget that night.
It was after 15 years that I was meeting this guy but what I felt was ethereal. I felt that I had known him all my life and that our meeting was a continuation of the conversations we had been having over all the years. I had never felt this way before. The connection was spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical. The meeting which was planned for 30 minutes went on for 8 hours.
We dropped off J at the airport and I learned that our common friend had been trying to set us up all this while! It was as if the Universe had conspired to bring J and me together.
I continued to affirm and practice gratitude not knowing what was on J’s mind. I was determined to give this time and not interfere with the trip that J was on. Three weeks into this, J messaged me saying he wanted to talk. He called and we spoke for a few minutes and what he said next reaffirmed my faith in the LOA. He said that he had felt a strong connection to me the first time we spoke on the phone and once again when we met. He practically spelled out the script that was running in my head. If this was not the power of the Universe I do not know what is.
He then went on to tell me that he was in a difficult place in his life and not in a position to make any big decision regarding a relationship. I was not dissuaded and continued to assure him that all was good. This went on for a few weeks and unfortunately, this was when my anxiety spiraled. This led to me breaking down in front of him one day. I had gotten desperate about making this relationship work and all my anxieties from my previous relationship had resurfaced.
Two days later J called to say that he would not be able to take the relationship ahead because he had a lot of issues to sort out in his life. I cried my eyes out that entire night. I prayed for things to get resolved, we spoke again after a week but he said he was clear. It still made no sense because every fiber of my being knows that he is the one for me.
And then in a eureka moment, I realized that J had gifted me the biggest lesson of my life. The best gift that any relationship can give is for each to discover love within themselves. J was doing this for himself and in the bargain, did it for me too.
It was as if a switch just toggled within my mind. I switched from fear to faith. I realized this was the Universe telling me to practice self-love without burdening J with it. For this lesson, I am eternally grateful to J. This to me is the biggest hallmark of a relationship. J is the purest, most genuine, and beautiful person I have met. The Universe spoke to me the night we met and the Universe never lies. Anything created by the Universe never dies, it only manifests into something more beautiful.
As I write this, I am experiencing more gratitude and happiness than I have in my entire life. I am learning to take care of myself and love myself the way J loves me. I am reading The Power and The Magic and practicing meditation. I am sending all the love that I can to J. It has been 10 days and he has already taken the initiative to call and text me once each, something that had never happened earlier. I am the happiest I have ever been, knowing that the Universe has my back and that I am being guided and protected. In a way, J and I are preparing to enter this relationship together.
I know that I do not ‘need’ J for anything. What I do know is that I ‘want’ him in my life. I am a happy person and J just amplifies my happiness. I have only good thoughts for him and wish for him to find his peace and happiness.
I am deeply grateful to the Universe for the emotions I am experiencing and am sure I will be writing another story very soon. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
