Divine Creating - Free College Education is the second in a series of stories that demonstrate how the universe creates through us. We are always manifesting through our thoughts, so let’s remember to create more consciously with intention.

In Divine creating we focus our thoughts and intention on co-creating positively in union with God. Sharing stories of Divine creating encourages and inspires more consciousness in manifesting. What we focus on we create more of with the love and support of Source. Energy follows awareness.

In 1971 I got married right after graduating from high school. After working at various jobs including retail, house cleaning and nanny jobs for two years I was ready to go back to school. How could we afford it with our meager incomes and an apartment and other living expenses to pay for? Determined to improve my life through education was my intention in spite of not knowing the details of how I was going to accomplish my goal.

Bronx Community College

Bronx Community College, part of City University of New York, was just moving to NYU campus just a few blocks away from where I lived with my new husband. CUNY was about to start an experiment which provided free community college education starting in September 1973. Paying the $35 registration fee and paying for the cost of books were the only expenses I had for school. Registering for 10 credits and working part time to pay my half of our living expenses helped me to keep a balanced schedule. This was the Divine creating with me and for me organically.

How grateful I was to go to Bronx Community College for free! Grass, trees and flowers surrounded me as I walked to my classes in the park-like setting. It felt so abundant, like attending a private college with well-kept acreage. This was truly a gift!

At Bronx Community College I excelled in all of my classes. I was on the Dean's List for the three years that I attended the college thanks to the excellent professors there and my readiness for school. My classes were from 8 a.m. to 12 noon Monday through Friday. I eventually landed a job across the street at University Heights Day Care

Center for the after-school program. This was so convenient and helped me to pay for my share of the living expenses at home.

All My Needs Were Met

All my needs were met by the Divine creating through me. Looking back I see now that I was using spiritual tools of manifestation to accomplish my goal of returning to school. I just wasn't aware of it at the time.


Staying focused on my intention to go back to school is what I did back then. Although I didn't know the details of how I was going to be able to do it, I didn't let that stop me. Like a magnet all the details were drawn to me, unfolded, and manifested before me.

Affirmation: "I am going back to school."

I remember saying the affirmation "I am going back to school." When friends and family asked for more details I would say that I didn't know how. All I knew was that "I am going back to school." The universe took care of the details and all I had to do was to keep showing up, affirming my truth, and be open to receiving.


Gratitude for the Divine creating through me was so sweet and palpable. Even now I feel it and I am still in gratitude to the universe for manifesting a wonderful free college education. My world expanded as a result of my experience at college. It was a stepping stone in my path to living my true potential.

Divine creating is available to each of us as we are Divine beings. Stay focused on the intention of what you want the universe to magnetize to you. Use affirmations, positive statements of truth, to keep your thoughts focused on the goal. Be sincerely in gratitude for everything and everyone in your life. Stay open to receiving what the Divine is manifesting in your life as the result of this creative process of Divine creating.
