The next morning I woke up to a gorgeous view of the Old Town. I couldn't believe I was living my dream. I quickly got ready and rushed out of my room to explore the surreal Old Town. It was a beautiful sunny morning. I stepped into the lane immediately adjacent to my AirBnB and I just couldn't believe my eyes.
I was standing in the exact same lane that had been my computer wallpaper for so many months. It was the very same lane that had, in fact, ignited within me a strong urge of travelling to Croatia. Somehow, I had unknowingly booked an AirBnB right at the top end of the exact same lane.
I pinched myself. It was all a reality. Tears of joy were involuntarily rolling over my cheeks. The vacation that followed after that turned out to be the best vacation of my life.
Now the reason why I write about this is that I didn't know what I had done until recently when I read about the 'law of attraction.' The law of attraction states that if you desperately want something, you should put up pictures in front of you which give you the feeling of already having got the thing you desire. Doing this ultimately leads you to get exactly what you want!
As I read about the law of attraction, the story of my trip to Dubrovnik played in my head. I realised that by looking at the wallpaper of that lane of the Old Town every day, I had unknowingly let out signals to the Universe of what I wanted. And thanks to the law of attraction, the Universe had delivered exactly that to me.
Today, Croatia is a popular destination and Indians know about it thanks to the widely popular television show, 'Game of Thrones.' But back in 2014, it was a totally unknown tourist destination for Indians. For that matter, I had never even heard of the place 'Dubrovnik'. At that time, I didn't have enough savings to get a Croatian visa or to go to Europe for a multiple entry Schengen Visa. But the Universe set aside all these hurdles and a trip to my dream destination materialised!
I am sharing this story with you only to tell you that no matter where you want to travel to, no matter what the difficulties involved are, you will be able to visit that place. Just have faith and practise the law of attraction!
