A Dream to Open Own Law Office
Tatiana Ferreira Da Cunha Florida, U.S.A.
My first contact with Seicho-No-Ie was 30 years ago through my grandmother, when I was only 5 years old. My grandmother never missed a Seicho-No-Ie meeting in our city, Porto Alegre, Brazil. I grew up learning Seicho-No-Ie’s wonderful teachings and I became a very confident person who always achieved my goals. As a child of God, I always knew that I have infinite power and that I can do anything I want.
In Brazil, I graduated from college and I was an attorney working with my father in his law office. I first came to the U.S.A. in 2004. My purpose/dream was to get a master’s degree in law. And I met my husband, who is from Brazil, and married him in 2006. We soon started to face problems, such as shortage of work and lack of money. We were very concerned and were even thinking about going back to Brazil.
Around that time I found a Seicho-No-Ie advertisement in a Brazilian newspaper and had no doubt that I should go there with my husband immediately. We went to the Seicho-No-Ie Miami Beach Readers’ Meeting. I did not know that I could find Seicho-No-Ie here. We joined Seicho-No-Ie Miami Beach and we now attend the Tuesday meeting every week. Our lives changed so much that we cannot count the blessings we have received since then.
The greatest blessing we have received is our son Anthony, who was born in February, 2009, exactly one year after a doctor told me that I could not become pregnant. Of course, I did not believe what the doctor said, because I am a Seicho-No-Ie member and I knew that my True Image is perfect and that I could become pregnant. I prayed, “Yes, I can become pregnant because I am perfect and I am healthy.”
My first opportunity to attend the International Spiritual Training Seminar was in December of 2009. My husband, my son and I participated in the 48th International Spiritual Training Seminar held in Florida. It was a wonderful weekend. From Friday night when the International Spiritual Training Seminar started until Sunday afternoon when it ended, I felt in peace and harmony. I felt I was at home and indeed I was at Home of Infinite Life, Wisdom and Abundance.
On the last day I participated in the Shinsokan for Mutual Prayer. I asked them to pray that my husband's application for a residency visa be approved soon. We had been waiting for the residency visa approval for more than eight months. Twenty-nine days after the Mutual Prayer we received the news that my husband's request was approved.
I also asked that they include my dream in their Prayer that I be admitted to a graduate school of law and I become a lawyer in the U.S.A. I am now preparing to be admitted to a graduate school in June. I am sure that my dream has already come true in the True Image world.
I could not be happier that my participation in the 48th International Spiritual Training Seminar brought only good things. After the Seminar, when I wake up every day, I say to myself “I’m happy, I’m healthy, and I’m wealthy! Only good things come my way!”
We started monthly English meetings six months ago and they are getting better each month. My dream is to have my own law office and help people who cannot afford attorney’s fees. Another dream is to build a huge Seicho-No-Ie Headquarters in Miami like the one in Brazil and have meetings in English, Spanish, Portuguese and other languages.
