Trip to Tahiti.
I am part Tahitian part German. My father is Tahitian. He passed away in 1997. We had been to Tahiti while I was growing up, meeting a lot of family and spending time with brothers and sisters. When Dad passed away, I was not sure if my family would be interested in me any more. He was the connection between all of us. I could not speak french fluently and was scared that communication would be a real issue.
My brothers and sisters are all older than me and were bringing up children and living their lives. I lost all contact and for years I was resigned to the fact that Tahiti was long gone for me. I had a burning desire to go back, every time I would see it on television or pictures, tears would well up in my eyes. This feeling got stronger and stronger.
2009 came and I wrote a story in my journal about a trip to Tahiti. The key points in my story were that we made the trip and it was the best family holiday ever. We were embraced with love and language was not a barrier because the family could feel my heart.
I joined Facebook around that time too and all these relatives started popping up. I was reconnecting with my family! I spoke with my husband about my desire becoming a reality and asked if we could focus on this together. He agreed, so on New Year’s Day, we cut an advertisement out on Tahiti that said ‘Welcome.’ We hung it up on the photo wall we have near the dining table. We changed the screen saver on the computer to a photo of islands over there. We told the girls that we are going on holidays in September 2010. We looked at these images daily. The girls would have their birthdays over there and meet family. Throughout the year, we would ask them what they wanted to do over there. My oldest daughter who was 6 years old at the time asked if we could swim with sting rays. I boldly said yes.
As far as money goes, we had at that time $800.00 in our account. Every pay check we paid our holiday fund and said thank you every deposit. It was in small amounts with a big thank you. At one point we were unsure if we really could go. It was July and we still didn’t have the amount we desired. We reminded each other to act as if and to focus on the feeling of having achieved our desire. We wrote on our water filter the date it needed to be changed, we affirmed again ‘Change filter, September. after Tahiti.’
What I love about this story is that in the past my husband has always thought that he has been my law of attraction bringing in money when I asked for it. This time, I get a call from him and he says ‘I just received a call from Social Security and they owe us $6000.00 back pay. They are sending us a cheque in the mail at the end of the week’. He was baffled and said ‘ How did this happen?’ He had nothing to do with this, so he was amazed too. I jumped for joy!
We booked the tickets for the 30th August around the price we asked for and arrived in Tahiti as written on the 1st September. We spent 3 weeks there with family. We were spoilt and embraced with so much love, I had arrived home. Language was not an issue, we speak Frenlish (French and English) and a relative even said ‘Don’t worry about your french so much. We hear your heart when you speak.’
My daughter also got what she asked for. My sister has a cousin who does whale tours, he asked if we would like to come with him. Of course we agreed. We went swimming with sharks, whales and stingrays. Price for this life time adventure.. free!
Now we are going back again in 2011! I am so thankful that the Universe provides exactly what we ask for. I tell everyone: focus on what you DO want not on what you don’t. It works.
