Are You Trusting The Universe To Conspire On Your Behalf?
Updated: Oct 28, 2020
Have you ever thought to yourself “Is my purpose here on Earth really what I am supposed to be doing?” Sometimes life throws you a curve ball which can put you out of alignment of who you really are. You begin to second guess yourself and then fear starts to set in. Then you base your decision because of your fears.
This exact thing happened to me recently. Due to illness, the energy of my Reiki business plateaued. I had a severe diverticulitis infection back in February where I was down for a month. I was just getting better from that and because my immune system was down, I became sick with a nasty respiratory infection and was down for another 3 weeks. I realized that it was my body’s way of warning me that I needed to make some changes of priorities in my life. It was the Universes way of putting those things in my path to make me STOP and PAUSE.
I put my business first but I had put myself lower on the list of priorities. I was not taking care of myself. I was helping others but not helping myself. I got caught up in the fast pace of I HAVE to work hard at my business and succeed. So as a result, fear set in. I was in a whirlwind and I was ready to close my business and walk away, all because of fear. Fear that I would not succeed, fear that I am not good enough, and fear of failure.
I began to take a look at where this was coming from. In doing Shadow Self work, I realized that even though I didn’t show it, I had these fears growing up as a child and carried them into my adult life. Once I realized this, I began to take a look at those fears, honoring them and letting them go. Loving the light and dark sides of me and integrating them. By stuffing those things deep inside of myself, my inner child was running my life. We have now melded and are navigating life together.
The other morning while sitting outside having coffee, I had come to the realization that I was basing my decision of closing my business from fear. I decided to step out of the whirlwind of that energy and just BE. I had asked the Universe to show me signs of what I was supposed to do. I let it go and trusted that the Universe would show me the way.
Ask and you shall receive!
To quote Ralph Waldo Emerson, "Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen". Just this week, I received emails from four individuals wanting to take Reiki I class. An opportunity was presented to me to be part of a global venture that allows me to use my spiritual creative writing skills to write mystical and magical messages for oracle card decks. This all happened in the last 3 days because I stepped aside and trusted the Universe. I have also rearranged my priorities to put me and my family first, and work my business around that.
The moral of the story is, NEVER give up. Never base your decisions on fear. When you are faced with bumps in the road, take a moment to pause and just be present with yourself. Things happen for a reason. Look at this as a positive opportunity to grow. Take time to do an emotional inventory and work through the emotional baggage to release blockages that have been holding you back. Once you clear them, it makes room for new energy and new things to come into your life. Live life happily, be authentically YOU!
Always remember, you don’t have to do anything, you GET to do things that are in alignment with who you are. Make it fun because if it isn’t, what is the point of doing it? Change your direction to make it fun. Life is too short.
Live what you love!
