I had always dreamed of going to school in the UK but I could not see how to make it happen as I did not have the qualifications or the money. I read The Secret when I was younger and though the truths resonated with me I never consciously practiced it. It was only when I fell into a deep depression that I came across The Secret book and movie again. Coincidentally, my mother who has always practiced The Secret, also encouraged me to read the teachings of Abraham Hicks.
It was just what I needed and I became hopeful. I was watching Abraham Hicks videos every day and most importantly, I started visualizing myself studying at the school of my choice in the UK. I came across information about a foundation course which would bridge the gap between my education and the qualifications I needed and gave me a guaranteed progression to my preferred degree at the University of my choice. I found a video online of a tour of the accommodations at the school which is in the same building as the classes. I memorized as much detail as I could and every night before I went to bed in my mind I would walk around “my” campus, “my” suite, look at the view through “my” window and go to “my” bed in the UK. I did this every night and things just started to unfold perfectly.
When everything looked like it was going my way, I had secured money for the accommodations and tuition fees, things started going wrong, I experienced delay after delay in the VISA process and missed the opening date for my semester. But even through all these “difficulties” I kept visualizing every night before I went to bed.
After all the ‘delays’ everything was resolved and I was on a plane on my way to the UK. Even though I arrived 23 days late, I am in the top 5 of my class and I am living my dream. I am walking around in real life on the same routes I used to walk around in my mind. From no school to studying at a University and ranked in the top 1% in the world.
Visualization works! I have so many dreams and I feel exhilarated knowing that as long as I visualize they will inevitably become my reality. So whatever you are hoping for, keep visualizing.
