The Power Within

Not very long ago, I had a heart to heart with a friend which opened up my eyes. I was in a really happy phase of life then – perfect job, perfect love life, friends for life. I had the confidence that comes with being in the happy zone.

As I was sitting there, in the lobby of our hotel, waiting for my colleagues to join me, I felt like connecting to one particular friend of mine. We hadn’t spoken in a while, but she is one of those friends who you are always connected to even through long dry spells. After the general banter I soon realised that I didn’t feel the same energy coming from her. She is atleast 20 yrs my senior, working, independent lady, married and happy. Atleast that’s what I thought. On probing further little by little this amazingly beautiful person that I knew started to open up about the darkness in her life.

It was then that she told me that she had separated from her husband a few years ago. She lived alone with her daughter while the son lived with the father. She independently raised her daughter and slogged between jobs to put her daughter through school and college. But that’s not where her ordeal was bad. The worst part about all this was the ordeal her husband and son put her through day in and day out even after separating.

For my friend to separate from her husband was a very bold and risky step as she had no job, no source of income and no support system as her husband had pulverised her confidence over the years of their marriage.But once out she realised that wasn’t her only hardship. Whenever she tried to apply for a job her husband made sure it went away somehow. He bad mouthed her everywhere she tried to go – whether for job or to stay with her daughter. And worse for her a lot of men tried taking advantage of her in disguise of being her well wishers.

But today after years of taking abuse and living in the shadow of darkness, I don’t see a shade of grief. Everytime I see her, I see this beautiful woman, so full of hope and love! And I wondered out loud to her, “How do you manage to be so radiant and positive?” And her answer was quite simple really, she said,”I chose to feel radiant and positive! That’s the only choice I have in life.”

That summed up everything for me. It’s not your present life that decides your reality, it’s your outlook on life. What you feel within shows in every action of yours and sets ahead your future. So don’t let your present life decide what or who you are and where you want to go. Do things with love and be love.

The Wonder Raise – Not Exactly a Surprise

boss-employee-handshake-140300414-small

So in continuation to my initial post about how I manifested my dream job offer, comes this one! So there were many reasons why I decided to not take the chocolate cake with cherry topping. The one that topped the list was that I didn’t feel I had exhausted all learning opportunities that my current job had to offer. So when I decided to stay back I was happy with the opportunities I was getting in my job but the pay in comparison to what I was offered now seemed low. This made me wonder how much more I could have done with that kind of money(I must admit…most of it would have just gone into savings…but quite a bit of it would have been used for my love for travelling). So instead of sulking I decided to manifest! I wrote an increment letter to myself with the exact hike I desired to get. I calculated all aspects of my variables and decided to make it very believable. I photoshoped signatures on it, printed it on on letterhead of my company through my office printer ( I was really scared someone might read it before me, but that was such a “cheap thrill” like rush!)

So with this printed, fake yet believable appraisal letter tucked away nicely in an envelope branded with my company logo and my name, I would travel everywhere. I kept it in any handbag I chose to travel with. Every morning on my way to work I would read the appraisal letter. If I am travelling with someone I would read it on my phone. And this slowly got the belief in me that it is surely and absolutely possible for me to have exactly all those things I had listed out in the letter.

And finally, less than a month later I was called in by my boss to discuss my appraisal. And I opened the letter with such an excitement to see how I had favored in my belief. And to my absolute delight there it was! The exact figure that I had wished as my appraisal. Although the designation came in the next appraisal. But what I really wanted I got immediately 🙂 Keep believing in what you desire! It’s as simple as that!

Manifesting the Dream Job Offer!

“Success will be within your reach only when you start reaching out for it.”

I have been a huge fan of the Law of Attraction for a while now. It has got me through some of the most stickiest, toughest of times. The Law of Attraction entered my life in the time when I needed it the most; when I was vulnerable and lost. And there are many many stories I would enjoy sharing here today of those times. But we’ll keep that for another set of talks. Today I want to talk about how I have fun with the Law of Attraction now and manifest everything I want – just by believing that I already have it! That’s some really clean thought.

So one of them many fun things I have done with the help of LOA is manifest one of the best job offers till date. This was during the time I was feeling really bored with my job. I didn’t feel like there was any challenge left in the job, no spark. So I got to thinking – what if I got a job offer right now from one of the big firms of my industry? Sure doesn’t seem like a big thing to manifest but what you need to know is that at that time I had been working with my company only 7 Months! That’s it! That was my entire work experience. But that was the whole point of it. To imagine the unthinkable and make it happen!
