Hi, I am Akshay from India, a successful magician by profession who has a magical story to tell about the law of attraction.
It all started back when I was in the sixth grade. At that time, I had a keen interest in performing magic. However, my fellow schoolmates, teachers, relatives and others didn’t think I could do it. They were constantly poking fun of my dreams. As the years passed by, the jokes continued–different people, but same response.
However: I knew better.
Even from that young age, I always had a very strong idea in my mind that I would travel the world–yes, travel internationally–totally supported by my magic.
And so, because of my faith and belief, that is exactly what happened.
When I was in the second year of my Bachelor’s Degree program, I got a phone call from a cruise line based in the U.S.A. They wanted to hire me for eight months to entertain audiences in the U.S.A. and Mexico! I was twenty at the time, and just starting out, and I couldn’t believe it.
Because I wanted to complete my major before leaving India, I waited for a year before accepting their offer. Then, just three weeks after my degree was in hand, I was on the flight from India to the U.S.A.
Now it is two years later, and I am twenty-two years old. I completed my international trip, having performed over 153 shows internationally. I also renovated my house in India and am now planning to take things to the next level with my career.
Sometimes, I still bump into some of the colleagues who used to ridicule me, and I notice that there are those among them who are still searching for jobs. Enough said about that, I guess!
Inspiration from the other side.
You’ve been on the spiritual path for a good while now. You’ve read the books. Maybe even met a guru or two. Sometimes, though, you need a different kind of inspiration. Inspiration from someone who knows how hard this inner peace stuff really is.
