To say the last few weeks have been frustrating would be the understatement of the year. Everything we had planned for and expected has not worked out.
It’s been baffling. Things that were over the line, suddenly weren’t and great rows of hedges appeared in the middle of barren deserts.
What the hell was going on?
“Gosh, Craig, I’m really worried about what this means. Maybe we aren’t meant to go on this road trip. All the signs seem to be saying that. But deep down I feel this is the right thing to do. Then why is this happening? I just wish the Universe would talk directly to me, so I know what to do!!”
I looked at the sky and emphatically pleaded for the voice to boom on down and give me my instructions.
I almost heard the chuckle and felt the words from within say, “I’m always talking.”
And in that magical way of it, for the remainder of the day it spoke directly to me. Words on a facebook news feed jumped out at me amongst the noise of images, quotes, and embarrassing jokes:
During Kalyra’s story time, Aunt Milicient’s words of wisdom to Barbie stuck in my awareness when all the others were just barks at print,
“Magic happens when you just believe in yourself”
To turn my mind off my worrying, I took action based upon what needs to be done in this moment, writing my ebook.
I opened it to a place I thought needed refining and again the Universe spoke to me through my own words.
I’ve always had a motto in my life,
“Never expect things will happen in a certain way, but don’t lose hope that they won’t.”
Expectations are saying you know better than the truth. It’s rare that things will turn out the way you expect them to, nevertheless they will turn out the perfect way.
If you release your control on the outcome, you welcome in that perfection and your open the senses to enjoy and learn from it. Loosen your grip and just enjoy the magic of the ride.
I can feel this gigantic swirling pull happening around me. The Universe is at work, I know it, I just don’t know what it’s working on and it’s slightly killing me.
How do you let go of the fear that surrounds the need to know what is happening and have control over your outcome?
You don’t. You never do, and its the greatest illusion of our life.
All this listening and understanding guided me towards the final chapter of my next eBook, the principle I was missing,
“Let go and trust.”
I think the book is ready to be finished now. Perhaps this is why everything was not working out, to guide me to this place of deeper insight.
Or, maybe I just over analyse things and instead of trying to always put the pieces of the puzzle together, I should just relax and let them all fall where they may. Because they will fall and tehy’ll land exactly where they are supposed to.
Boy, the Universe just never stops talking to you!
How does the Universe talk to you?
