“Today is going to be your last day.” I felt my blood boil as I contemplated whooping my boss’s ass and fought back tears. She was firing me. Up until that point, I had never been fired from a job. Now I’ll be honest, I already had one foot out the door at this job. I wasn’t happy and I slowly felt myself giving up… but to be fired was the ultimate blow to my ego. And what made it worse was the way they did it and the fact that they literally walked my replacement in right before they fired me. It felt like they were rubbing it in my face. I had befriended someone at the job and she would constantly tell me how the place was shady, I finally got the chance to see it for myself.
That was back at the beginning of October. Fast forward two months later and not only am I teaching preschool, something I’ve been trying to do for a while, I’m also making a little more than what I previously made. Recovering from a job loss can be tough. Especially when you have bills to pay. I talked to my older sister the day I was let go and she said to me, “It hurts now, but months from now when you’ve found a new job, it won’t hurt anymore.” She was right. I gave myself a day to cry it out then started my job search. I almost gave up on my passion for working with children because behind each early childhood job I had, was bullshit. I knew my preferred age group and I knew I only wanted to work with preschoolers. But up until now, that hadn’t worked in my favor. I applied for a few work from home jobs and a few others…but teaching preschool was still in the back of my mind. I remember when I was still at my previous job I started a morning manifestation ritual. I’d voice record myself talking about my day as if it already happened. During this, I talked about being a preschool teacher even though I wasn’t. I spoke as if it were already happening.
After a week or two of applying for non-teaching jobs, I finally decided to look at teaching positions again. The market was saturated with positions but I didn’t see what I was looking for. I meditated on it almost every day. I prayed about it. I envisioned myself walking into my classroom each day. I started believing that if it’s meant for me to do this work, I’ll receive an opportunity. I logged onto the site I use to search for jobs and there on the first page was exactly what I’d been praying for; a position teaching preschool. I applied right away and within a day I received an email to set up a phone screen. After my phone screen, I was contacted by my current boss to set up an interview. I knew before the interview that this job was mine. I felt it.
When you’re trying to manifest something, it’s important to be clear about what it is you want. Speak it out loud to the universe. Write it down and read it to yourself every day. After that, actually ask for what you want and remember to start working towards your goal. Start a manifestation ritual where you voice record yourself talking about what it is you want as if it is already yours. Manifestation truly works. What we think, what we believe, becomes our reality.
Start believing that you can create change in your life.
