We live in an era of instant gratification. We know what we want, and Google can tell us where to get it fast. In many ways this has made life incredibly easy. Things are happening at a record pace, and technology keeps trying to break it’s own record in terms of convenience and timing.
Yet for many people, this has lead to a mindset that all things in life should happen at record speed. So when it comes to the business of your dreams, finding a soul mate, or the book deal, you want it to have happened, yesterday.
When things don’t happen in your time frame it can be incredibly frustrating. Many people either tend to lose faith, or force solutions that don’t end up actually bringing forth their desired results. As my dear pal Kris Carr says, you can’t yell at your kale to make it grow faster.
Beyond your idea of what should happen, and when, there is a divine order. As spiritual activist and author Marianne Williamson often says, this is a self-organizing and self-correcting universe: the embryo becomes a baby, the bud becomes a blossom, the acorn becomes an oak tree. Clearly, there is some invisible force that is moving every aspect of reality to its next best expression. Trust in the force. Take a moment to look back at the timing of your own life and remind yourself that…
When you can relax into the flow of life, you can enjoy the process more. Try to stay connected to the way you want to feel and have faith that the details are being worked out. You’ll feel more relaxed and at ease with, and in the present moment. Remind yourself that as long as you put forth the effort and take the necessary steps towards your dreams, good things will come your way.
I’d love for you to share with me in the comments below one situation that you would like to surrender to divine timing. Then throughout this week, if a moment should arise where you begin to feel stressed or frustrated that things aren’t happening according to plan, take a breath, and come to back to this blog. Use it as a gentle reminder that life is unfolding as it should. There is a master plan, and your happiness is very much a part of it.
Have a divine week and as always, take care of you
