I made a list of the features I wanted, the color, year, make and model of the car. These were my non-negotiable. I also searched for it online and saved a picture and made it my wallpaper on my laptop. I was seeing "my car" everywhere I went. I kept telling everyone it's a sign! But truthfully I thought it would be at least 6 months to a year before I'd actually be able to find one and buy it. I had no idea what was to come only days later.
When i went to Nissan on Valentine's Day to have a headlight bulb replaced, i decided to walk around the entire parking lot looking for my dream car and didn’t see any cars I liked in my price range. When I went over to the guys in the sales department and told them i want a new car, a white used maxima to be exact, none of them did anything to show me any cars or calculate any payments for me. They also made my son cry which made me leave. My 3-year old son is my detector. Whenever he behaves a certain way, it is a sign and I follow that. When he cries or misbehaves, it is a sign to leave.
February 26 New Moon:
At this time my current car was out of service waiting to be fixed. I just recently learned about manifesting on new moons. So every new and full moon, I do a little ritual of making a wish, writing what I am grateful for, and doing some releasing and forgiveness. I decided for this new moon that what I wanted to manifest was a white 2013 Maxima 3.5 SV. See my actual ritual wish. Usually you’re supposed to burn it to release it to the world, but we had heavy rain and wind here in southern California and at my first attempt, my ritual list flew out of my hands and landed in the rain. I quickly grabbed it, folded it up in hopes of doing it another day, and totally forgot about it.
During this time, I had a new found connection with my car. I felt sorry for her. I felt like I was neglecting her and she felt unloved and unappreciated. I felt guilty thinking about replacing her with a new fancy car. She’s been very reliable and kept me safe for 6 years. She sat in front of my house for 2 weeks not running and I almost felt her pain. She was getting old and it felt like an old dying pet who was about to be put down and she could feel it. I prayed for her to get fixed and finally, she was- and it was something very simple and free! I finally had my car back. It felt so great driving her. I felt her power, she was alive and well! I hugged the steering wheel during my first test drive.
I decided to stop obsessing over getting a new one. I fell in love allover again with my car because she's been so amazing and reliable for the last 6 years, I just wanted her to last me until I did find a new car, whenever it was going to be. I decided to let the Universe decide when that would happen. I did however hope to get a new car within a year because of all the new problems my car was having, but I was completely ok and fine with waiting. I no longer worried about a new car, in fact I got really sad thinking about letting her go.
The very next day, my headlight went out again-only 3 weeks after the bulb was replaced. So I was back at the dealership. I wanted to make an appointment to go to a different dealership in hopes of talking to some sales people of a possible trade in deal while someone looked at my headlight. But when I called they told me they are understaffed and don't take new customers. So I had no choice but to go back to the same dealership. I had a weird feeling this was all part of some divine plan. This time, I had no intentions of looking at new cars or talking to those sales guys again. I had no idea what was in store for me.
When I brought my car in a few days later to have the headlight looked at, the service guy offered some discounts for me to get get some necessary repairs done, I nicely declined saying I am looking to trade my car in so I think I'll wait. :) For me that meant, wait a few months maybe even a year if my car would withstand it. They told me it would take about 3 hours to have it looked at so I took my son for a long walk and we went out to kill some time by the nearby mall and grabbed some food.
2 hours later we began to walk back to see the status of my car. On my way back I was a bit worried of what the diagnosis of my headlight would be since it was likely to be an electrical problem. I then out loud said to the Universe “Please help me find a way to fix my headlight for free, or get me a new car.” I believe in miracles and was waiting for one. A few minutes later, I was back at the dealership was passing through their parking lot to get to the service department I noticed a white maxima. I saw it was a 2013 with a sunroof and dark gray wheels. It matched the car I had on my wallpaper on my computer.
The whole experience was so surreal that I began to get a migraine. I couldn't believe what was happening. A part of me wasn't ready to say goodbye to my car just like that. I was also prepared to hear that my application got denied. I just didn't think it was possible to go home in that car that day, only weeks after I made a decision to get a new car, and only days after I let go and detached from even getting it. The main reason I thought I would get rejected is because I have been a stay at home mom for 3 years. I didn't have a stable income. The only thing I managed to have is good credit. I believe the main reason why it manifested so fast was because I knew what I wanted, wrote it down, wished for it on a new moon, I detached from the outcome, and showed my appreciation and gratitude for my existing car.
Here are the features that the car had in relation to what I had written on my list:
2013 White Maxima, V6 3.5 SV. It has 57,000 miles although my list said 50,000 or less, I still think that it was extremely close. There were other features I really wanted, but I did not think they came in 2013 models so I didn’t even write them on the list. After purchasing and driving my new car, I realized the car did not have a navigation system, it just happened to have a big screen that mislead me. However, I later discovered it had features I really wanted more than the navigation, I was so ecstatic that I no longer cared about the navigation (especially since I usually used google maps on my phone) The features that I discovered were a usb charger that also connected my phone ipod to the car, so I was now able to listen to music from my phone while charging without using an AUX cable. My driver side seat had a seat cooler. It gets really hot here in the summer reaching over 100 degrees and I often have to sit on sweaters or blankets, so when I tried out the seat cooler, it was an exciting and yet weird feeling that felt like I was sitting on ice cubes. My backup camera had a guide that would turn as I turned the steering wheel, showing me exactly what my limits were so I didn’t hit anything. These were the main features that excited me.
I believe that my gratitude and detachment were the main key factors that made this work. Also, it was that dark headlight that lead me to my new car. It was the third time I had taken my car in for that headlight. Although initially it made me panic, I also hoped that there was a divine reason for its malfunction. This is one of the things I try to remember and used in my affirmation deck, to always remember that there are always hidden opportunities behind life's challenges, and this was one of them. Had I gone to a different Nissan that day, I also would not have seen that car, and the Universe made sure I didn't by making them refuse to take new customers. What about those guys that didn't help me on Valentine's day and made my son cry? Well I am pretty certain that my car was not there that day and the Universe made sure I didn't end up buying a different car because this is the car that was meant for me and I really didn't want to settle for a car I wasn't in love with.
How did I get approved for a bank loan? I truthfully don't know. I also know that it doesn't matter. The Universe has its ways. I believe that the stars aligned for me. In the Law of Attraction, the how doesn't matter, and this is why I believe in miracles.
I am so in love with my new car. I also miss my old one. I hope that she provides someone else a secure, safe ride as she has for me. After having a depressing birthday the previous year, I accepted this as an early birthday present from the Universe which was less than a month away. Next up-my dream home.
