Tonja’s Inspirational Story (Part 1 of 2)

Posted by admin - Under: Blog

Have you or someone you know ever had a child or pet that was taken or kidnapped?  Well, there’s one Spirit in the universe who knows where this loved one is.  This Spirit is our all knowing, all powerful God, Creator of the Heavens and the Earth and of all living organisms therein.  Doesn’t He have the power to lead you directly to your beloved?  This is exactly what He did for Tonja.

Dream Program student, Tonja Wilkes of Rossville, Georgia, was miraculously led to her best friend and horse, Ringo Star, after seven long months of being kidnapped and sold.  Ringo is a Percheron Draft horse similar to a Clydesdale, and very well trained. Ms. Wilkes used to show him often.  Tonja was betrayed by one of her closest friends who offered to let Ringo stay at her barn for free.  After a while, this friend cut off all communication with Tonja and later admitted selling Ringo for $1,000.

After following the Seven Step Method in the book, “Dream to Destiny”, Tonja was miraculously led right to Ringo and was even able to bring him back home. “Stolen horse stories rarely have happy endings,” says Tonja, “but thankfully I had the faith to rely on God and stay positive with the help of the Dream Program and friends.  I just did as God told me to do which is what Dina teaches in her book, Dream to Destiny.”

We share this true and inspirational story with you to let you know that you can achieve your dreams as well.  Go after them with FULL faith and perseverance when you apply the same method to your life as Tonja did!  In this story, Tonja shares what she did to find Ringo.

Tonja’s Story:  Originally I saw Dina teaching about the Dream Program on an ABC PrimeTime TV show.  After this inspiring episode, I went on Facebook to find her and I did. She accepted my friend request right away and we began communicating back and forth. She sent me her award winning “Dream Program Kit” which includes her book, “Dream to Destiny”. The Los Angeles Times voted this kit one of the Top “Recession Busters”.  Originally I used the Kit to help my fiancé get a job after being laid off for two years.  Two months after reading the book and applying the method, he was called in for an interview from a company that he applied to over 24 months ago.  They hired him right away and now he’s making more money than he made before he was laid off. This victory convinced me that the Dream Program Method works!

A few months later Ringo was stolen and sold by one of my close friends. To manifest his return, I got my “Dream Program Kit” out again.  With many pictures of Ringo and me together, I created a Dream Board (13” X 15”) and hung it on the back of my door where I could see it often. On it I wrote, “Ringo and Me Together Forever”.   Several times a day I’d pop kiss my hand on his face and say, “You’re coming home soon”.  Throughout each day I’d visualize having him back.

I didn’t follow the method perfectly.  At times I floundered in my faith but would always get back on the horse, so to speak.  Ha Ha!  With the help of my friends, family and mentor, Dina Beauvais, along with many of Ringo’s Facebook fans, I’d muster up the strength to persevere in my faithful quest to find him and bring him home.

I got the brilliant idea (from Above) to use social networking to find Ringo.  So, I started a “Bring Ringo Home” fan page on Facebook to spread the word across the U.S. and around the globe for everyone to be on the lookout for my boy.  Many people were joining me in prayer asking God to bring Ringo home. When I was down, Dina would encourage me on Facebook to remember that God knew exactly where Ringo was and to continually ask Him to lead me to Ringo. She also coached me to visualize riding Ringo every night before falling asleep.  She reminded me to believe with all my heart then follow the leads from Above. I diligently followed this advice. (This is an important action step I am sharing that is also laid out in “Dream to Destiny”.) Every night before falling asleep I’d lie in bed, close my eyes and focus all my energy on visualizing my boy back with me.  The room had to be dark and perfectly quiet.  I’d concentrate on my breathing and the visual would come to me.  I’d go to “my little place” in my mind and imagine riding Ringo early in the morning across lush green pastures. I could feel the dew on my skin and see the fog in the air.  As I was joyously riding him, I could even smell his scent as well as the dirt he kicked up on our run. Then I’d drift off to sleep, often having wonderful, vivid dreams of Ringo being home with me.
