I know a few people who always have bad luck. In fact they even say things like "with my luck..." followed by something negative. Both of them immediately expect the worst things to happen to them when a problem arises. I on the other hand remind myself to always, ALWAYS expect the best no matter what. So when I got pulled over for speeding, before the officer even made it to my car, I had already decided at that very moment, that I not going to pay for any tickets. "With my luck, I will get this baby dismissed" I thought, not having any clue on how to actually do that.
After he finally wrote up my speeding ticket, I thanked him and gave him a big smile, while thinking that he has just wasted 30 minutes of his time because I was going to get out of this ticket one way or another. I got my friend to her car in 1 piece and she seemed ok to drive home.
After careful examination, I saw that this speeding ticket was for over $400 plus points taken off my license. I was determined to get his ticket dismissed. I spoke with several friends who had speeding tickets. One told me to plead guilty and pay it because I stood no chance of getting it dismissed. “You are guilty” he said. Another told me to hire a lawyer. I decided not to listen to any of them. I didn’t want to hire a lawyer and I definitely did not want to plead guilty. I thought I will just explain what happened and hope that the judge will see this is my first moving violation and will lower my fine due to me having a sick passenger.
I went over the court hearing in my mind over and over dozens of times. I thought of all the possible scenarios. I knew that my chances of getting it dismissed were slim but I felt like I could still try. I also believed I had some sort of magical power and I can make miracles happen.
I started by going online to request a hearing. Instead, I clicked on something that made no sense to me and accidentally pleaded guilty. The next day I went to the courthouse to try and fix the problem. I told them I want a hearing. I don’t want to plead guilty. The woman at the window told me that she would now have to give me a new hearing date which was now months away. She also informed me that I could pay the fine in advance, and if I somehow won my case, I would receive a refund. But if I didn’t pay it, and did not show up to court, unless I was in the hospital or incarcerated, I would be found guilty and there would be a warrant out for my arrest (if I remember that correctly, either way it sounded serious). I decided to just pay it in advance and then hopefully get a refund.
The next morning, I dressed up to look professional, innocent, and sexy, wearing a button down blouse, pencil skirt, and high heels. I found the room where my court hearing would be held, I waited outside with all the other people who had their hearing as well. I saw to my right, police officers gathering together. I immediately recognized one of them and knew instantly that had to be the officer who gave me my ticket. I became nervous. I was really hoping he wouldn’t show up and my case would get dismissed. I was hoping it would be that simple. But there he was standing there. I was now preparing myself to defend myself in front of a judge.
When the doors opened, I found myself a seat and sat down. All the police officers sat together where the jurors usually sit. The judge came out and began to take attendance. He began to list names of people who were being dismissed because the officer who issued their ticket, was not present. I kept hearing a name, then “you are dismissed”. I sat there hoping to hear my name by some miracle but was pretty certain that the officer who wrote my ticket was right there. Although it had been months, I remembered his face so clearly. After a while, what felt like 10 or 15 minutes of names being read, I heard my name. Immediately after the judge said my name, he said “you are dismissed because officer so and so is not present. I see here that you paid your ticket, you will receive a refund in 6-8 weeks.” And then he moved on to someone else. What just happened!? I couldn’t believe it. I was so convinced I recognized that officer. I was wrong! I tried to compose my face as I was walking out of that room, but I couldn’t help but have the biggest grin on my face. I had pulled off another miracle!
What do you think? Did I manifest this or was it just good luck? Have you ever manifested something that other people were telling you was impossible? Let me know in the comments!
P.S. It took almost a year for my ex to declare his love for me again and want to get back together with me. Although we broke up several times since then, I can also vouch that I have healed and no longer feel obsessively in love with him but feel completely content with or without a man. I have also been more careful about speeding :D
