Setbacks Didn't Spoil This LOA Success
When Terry shared this manifesting success story, I knew you guys would enjoy hearing how an LOA newbie conjured up her $22k dream horse against intimidating odds.
Pay special attention to how she didn’t let two significant setbacks spoil her success …
My family and I breed Arabian horses and have done for over 40 years, here in Oz.
For many years, my mum and I had dreamed of breeding black Arabians, the rarest colour of all and not easy to acquire or breed. One day we had what appeared to be an overseas buyer for one of our stallions, for a quite substantial price.
We both agreed that this would be our opportunity to buy a black stallion or colt (a juvenile stallion) to start our long dreamed of black breeding program. So I started emailing various breeders both here and in New Zealand to see what was for sale.
As it turned out, one breeder from New Zealand had a magnificent black, straight Egyptian 2 year old colt for sale. His name was RNZ Scorza. (Straight Egyptian is even more rare and expensive – all their lines in their pedigree must go back to Egypt’s original state run stud.)
Scorza had been awarded 2011 New Zealand National Champion Colt. His price was $22,000 AUD, which was a hell of a stretch for the budget of small breeders like us. But we were counting on the sale of our stallion to pay for our new colt, so it was all good – or so we thought!
Soon after receiving the photos of this magnificent colt and deciding then and there, that he was “the one,” we learned that the sale of our stallion was not going ahead.
Mum and I sat down to try and figure out a way to come up with the money. The only thing left was to apply for a loan from the bank. Mum and dad had always had a good credit record and had paid a couple of previous loans up in good time, so there should be no problem.
We applied to the bank, who indicated that there should be no problem. I then emailed the colt’s owner and told him that we definitely wanted to purchase the colt and that we were just waiting on the bank. He was very happy and was even happier when I sent him photos of the mares we wanted to breed to Scorza and when I told him of all our plans for him.
A couple of weeks went by before we heard back from the bank – the application had been rejected! They had changed their lending rules and mum and dad no longer qualified!
I had started to read John Kehoe’s Mind Power Into The 21’st Century just before our attempts to buy Scorza had begun, so, once we had decided that he was “the one,” I figured this would be a great time to try this LOA business.
So every afternoon, I would walk about feeding the horses, repeating the affirmation, “RNZ Scorza is mine!” Then, just before finishing and going inside, I’d stand at the paddock we had ready for him and visualise this gorgeous black colt running around and then coming to a stop at the fence and looking off into the distance. My visualisation wasn’t any longer than a minute or two, but I did it all religiously, every evening.
So, when we got the knock back from the bank, we naturally thought that that was going to be the end of our dream. I no longer looked at Scorza’s photos and I emailed his owner to let him know that the bank had said no, and that we had no other means to come up with the money.
Mum and I were bitterly dissapointed. The owner emailed back and said how sorry he was. He also said that he had a cash buyer from China and a cash buyer from the USA that were now looking at Scorza. That just made us feel worse.
We both decided to just forget about Scorza and get on with our stud. After all, we still had some beautiful horses to breed with.
That evening, I went out to feed up, but I couldn’t stop thinking about Scorza. I had this feeling that wouldn’t go away, that I should just keep doing my affirmation and visualization anyway, just for a while. I didn’t know why, but I figured I had nothing to lose.
So every evening I followed my LOA routine, and exactly a week after the big let down from the bank, the colt’s owner emailed me.
He said he’d thought of a way for us to buy Scorza! He offered to let us pay him $2,000 and he would then sign Scorza over to us so we could get him transported by boat from New Zealand to Australia. We would then have 12 months to pay the remaining $20,000!
Now, this man is a multi-millionaire, a director of multiple companies, a very accomplished business man. He didn’t know us from Adam, except via the few emails we had sent him. No one, and I mean no one, EVER, EVER signs a horse over to a buyer before full payment has been made. Especially a very rare New Zealand National Champion black straight Egyptian colt worth $22,000!! (Black, homozygous straight Egyptian Arabians horses only make up 3% of all the Arabian horses in the world!)
Not only that, we were being given permission to take the colt out of New Zealand and to Australia before paying the $20,000!! Not only was he prepared to take such a huge risk with people he didn’t know, he was also passing up selling Scorza to either China or the USA for cash!
Mum and I couldn’t believe what we were reading!
Well, as you would expect, we did whatever it took to get that $2000, and in only a few weeks, our dream boy stepped of the truck and into his paddock, the very same paddock I had visualised him in all those months before. And Scorza paid for himself, as we were able to sell enough breeding services from him to other Australian breeders to pay up the remaining $20,000!
That was one hell of a first time manifestation, I can tell you! If the universe can make that happen, then absolutely nothing is impossible!
Our beautiful black boy is still taking pride of place in his paddock here in Oz and his foals are breathtaking! And the thing I’m most grateful for, is that my mum lived long enough to see our shared dream come true!
