The incidence which I am sharing here occurred around six months back. In 2013, on my birthday, one of my friend presented me a wrist watch:-) It was really a beautiful surprise gift. I was really happy. Everyday at work I would wear the watch and feel so good.
After about one year, while I was at work, I don’t know when and how my wrist watch fell down somewhere. I searched in all areas around my desk, corridor, canteen way and other places I visited that day. I was really upset. All time I would think of the watch. It really meant to me because it was a gift watch. I would not have mind much if it would have been bought by me. I informed security persons at our factory and other colleagues to inform me if they find my watch any where. I lost the watch somewhere on the way to my desk I suppose. Two-three days went off as it is with out any information about my lost wrist watch. I was hopeful to find it some where in office premises and did not go for a new watch. But after 4 – 5 days also, I could not find my lost watch. I just prayed to god and said that the person who has found my watch, if he/she needs my watch more than me, then please give him/her my watch and if not then return it to me. When it seemed that I will not get the lost watch now, I decided to buy a new one:-). I started feeling good about buying a new wrist watch. I felt that the one who might have found my watch would be needing it more than me and so without any more disappointment, I decided to get the new one.
As soon as I decided to buy a new one, suddenly a thought came to my mind and I asked universe to give me new wrist watch as gift because the one I lost was received in gift:-)….. You must be thinking how greedy…again I want a gift watch?…but trust me this thought was a sudden thought, I don’t know why and also I was not sure that whether I would really receive a gift of wrist watch.
With full mind set of buying a new watch, feeling joyful I went home in evening from work. I planned to visit the shop in coming two-three days and buy the watch. The time I reached home in evening, I totally forgot my request to Universe for a gift watch. I even did not tell this to any one in my family nor in my friends circle. When I reached home, mom informed me that while cleaning almirah [cupboard], she found a gift envelope which was presented to me 3 years back by my aunt on some occasion and that gift envelope was kept as it is. I had not opened it and all forgot about it until mom found it while cleaning. And guess what? The gift envelope was containing INR 1001:-))). Mom said take this gift envelope and the very first thought came to my mind was my new wrist watch. I told mom that I had asked universe to present me a new wrist watch in gift as I had lost my gift watch. I was really very surprised and joyful how fast Universe responds. I had given the request in the afternoon and Universe gave me gift money in the evening the same day. Wow!!!!
In weekend I went to mall and bought a really beautiful wrist watch with that gift money.:-) Cost was INR 1300 in which INR 1000 was a gift money and INR 300 mine:-))) Universe financed 76% of cost with gift money, so for me that was gift of wrist watch. Below is the pic of my new wrist watch I bought with gifted money:-)))) Its really beautiful…have a look. Its been over 6 months now using this watch:-))))
I am really blessed and grateful to Universe for all the gifts I have received till now. Many people tell me that do you only receive gifts or are you interested in giving presents. Whenever I hear these words, I just smile because I love to give surprise gifts. And universe gives me even more than I expect every time. Giving is receiving. I receive because I always give my best whole heartedly and in return universe gives me awesome pleasant surprises. Universe is so fast and perfect in its response.:-)))
