This is quite a story and when I look back I can scarcely believe how it all happened. It started on the 1st of Jan this year when I quit my job with a very high profile Radio Network based abroad. I was unhappy with the job and had written and read much about ‘jobs’ on this forum .Then I quit work when EVERYONE – everyone around me thought it was crazy to give up what they saw as a cushy job – and also realized that part of the reason for me staying on was because others saw my job as great :).
Not it starts – So I THOUGHT I had 300,000( local currency ) in my savings. I figured I could live on 20,000 a month with extra to spare . I wrote this down.  That would take me a long way without a job and that would also leave me enough time to switch careers ( I wanted to be an interior designer – or at least dabble in it ) .  I didn’t have time to do a course, and so decided I’d just work free for a bit.This mainly because I listened to some very ‘respected’ architects who didn’t see this taking off in any other way ! This proved to be a wrong move as I was to realize later . Anyway while I was doing some free work , I made some more money in the stocks 20,000 exactly and so I didn’t have to touch my savings that month . Then again I got some freelance work for the old Radio Network I worked for and they paid me 100$ a day – so I made more cash and didn’t touch savings . All of this time I used Principals from AAIG and Think and Grow Rich .
Then  the free work took its toll on me and slowly I sunk into bitterness and exhaustion and…….. I checked my bank account only to find that I had only 1000 left !!! I hadn’t spent a penny from it and was just as you can imagine SHOCKED. I’d misread the statements when I thought I had 300,000. I remember going through statements and just weeping my heart out , because all my life I’ve been such a  saver and this was the first time I’d ever screwed up – And so more days of tears …. until I remembered – came back to the forum – reread stories – did the processes- went to church again – re-read The Secret and The Science Of Getting Rich- started playing the prosperity game in particular and doing MASSIVE rampages of appreciation for all I had. Then I went on a holiday (my parents generously gave me money for it) and  the guess what ? When I returned I got this call – actually three calls from this one man asking me to please come down and redecorate his office and state my fee!!! And so I did.  I did this despite :
Nearly every major architect in the city saying I’d start with earning peanuts .
Nearly every interior decorator I spoken to saying I would always get paid in part , because people withhold the last payment ( never happened to me )
People telling me I should play it safe and stick to Radio forever :) or get married !
All of this was of course in my vibration and only started to change when I got up and said 'No more self pity or wallowing i sorrow - just enjoy the day and feel good'.

And here’s the icing – every month since January- with or without work I have received 20,000 or more EVERY MONTH as I wrote down . And I now have two more projects to work on .
Also when I let go and went downstream – the ideas came at the speed of light ( that’s for another post though). I’m learning – still learning, but when I need help, I have it here most of all through all the success stories and wonderful words of advice . I’m not done yet – and will be writing in another post sooner than this one.  I hope this encourages those thinking of a career switch and aren’t ‘qualified’ for the new one .

Great story, splanet! Very inspiring!

I love especially the part about how new ideas came to you when you got back into the Vortex. It reminds me of that lightboard quote from the Sara Books that someone quoted:
Paraphrase--However we light up, people and ideas of a similar vibration light up, too, and that is what we have access to.

Love that!

It's reminding me--just get into the Vortex, and any 'problem' will solve itself.

Thank you, and congratulations!!!

Hi!
I'm so glad you liked my story! But that's only a small , small part of the story . SSOOOO many other things happened as well-  like - manifesting  5 sushi dinners at the Shangrila Hotel ( really snazzy in my City ) for FREE when I wanted them ( I love Sushi and have no trouble manifesting expensive Sushi dinners because its so easy to imagine eating it :) ).Manifesting a fantastic Greek dinner for free at the only Greek place in town. Getting gifted a brand new,expensive mobile phone . Getting gifted a car service free.And being featured in Marie Clare Magazine( A magazine that's quite popular here ) - all with hair and make up and great clothes. All of this Free stuff happened without me ever having to ask for it verbally - all except the car service! And umm - also I'm a yoga practitioner, loved it , but never considered teaching seriously . Until I was offered a deal i couldn't refuse . So that gets  a lot of the money in as well, besides I'm doing what I JUST love so its not the least bit like work.  And one last thing I've learned - that the timing is ALWAYS perfect - Always and that I feel so good - not because of the stuff but because I was already singing to myself before it happened .Abe is a great thing ! :)

Hi splanet,

That is inspirational and I'm so happy you're manifesting what you want.  Something that came to mind (I've thought about this before) is the fact that you were taking action to earn this money.  For example, you did work to redecorate that man's office.  Does it make sense what I am asking? Meaning the impression I get is that you have to do something in order for whatever it is you want to show up. 

Blessings,
Tosha::critter

Hi Tosha !
Before I got in the vortex and things literally began falling in my lap - I tried SO hard - I made cold calls - gave my card to everyone I met - sent mailers out - NOTHING happened . This client of mine was a man I'd never met before , though we did have a common friend who connected us . But none of the work i did when I was out of the vortex really paid of in a  positive way - so I got no responses from the mailers or the others that I tried so hard to sell myself too.

And yes, I did have to work on this man's office - but you see - I was following my bliss- many times I just let go and solutions would show up as if by magic and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED and LOVE what I'm doing - so it really doesn't seem like work - I could do this forever! And this for someone who hasn't any experience in the field of interior decoration or architecture !!

Another thing that proved to me that the LOA works is a script I wrote sometime last year about redecorating a Ms. Singh's house( just a  name I thought sounded real enough) and guess what ? My second project is with a Ms. Singh !Amazing huh ?

The diference between my old job and this one is this: On the Old one I had So much time to myself , but I was just miserable and exhausted all the time -here the schedule is sorta hectic, but that's only because I make it that way and love doing it and somehow the energy shows up !
