I am hoping you can help me understand a complex situation. I have tried very hard in the past to re-create my life and make new goals and plans based on the twists and turns my life has taken over the past five years. It seems that no matter what I do nothing I plan ever works out. Can you help me to understand why this happening? Thank you for guidance with this, J.C.
The Universe does work in mysterious ways. It is benevolent and is always working for us even when all that is evident would suggest otherwise.
One thing that I have learned, and helps me from day to day, is to have crystal goals and intentions and to leave the plan, or the details, to the Universe.
When we get caught up in the how we lose sight of the what. Focus on what it is you want, visualize and affirm it as though it were a reality and leave the rest to God, or a higher power.
Life will inevitably throw twists and turns at us for many reasons, the main one being to test our faith, our commitment and our willingness to be flexible with the outcome.
It is very important to not take things personally when things seemingly are not going according to plan but rather trust that the reason is because of better outcomes that are not even occurring to us at the time.
If you can take one situation in the recent past and look at it from this higher perspective and then allow yourself to imagine all the good that will come from this plan not working out you will actually create an opening for the Universe to bring you results that your plan did not include. Results that are more in alignment with your purpose and desires and that will bring you greater happiness and abundance than you originally thought possible.
Try to imagine yourself as a willow tree. You are solidly grounded in the earth but each time the wind blows you move through the winds of change, as is your case, gracefully ….bending slightly but also moving back to center and even stronger than before.
This is the magic of allowing, being flexible and living in faith that you are not alone; that there is a force greater than you working to create the best life for you possible.
Now do the same for the rest of your goals that are ’seemingly’ not going according to plan. This will serve to give you a better view of what actually is working and at the same time giving you the hope and faith you need at this time in knowing that you are on the right path and have been over the past five years.
Every day is a new day… Just for today allow yourself to be like a willow tree and have faith, knowing truly that what is meant for us cannot go past us.
