… it was coming for you.

Have you ever been blindsided by an event? Was something taken away from you completely out of the blue?

If it was surprisingly ripped away from you and you never saw it coming; YOU WERE MEANT TO LOSE IT. 

As humans, we struggle with making the right decisions for ourselves. What if we let go of something and are left with immense regret? We might forever beat ourselves up if we make the wrong decision, right?

Here’s how your life works — if a decision is made BY YOU, you can forever regret it; but if a decision is made FOR YOU, know that THE UNIVERSE HAS CHOSEN IT.   

Free will can mess up a lot of stuff. Fate knows better.

Never lament something that is ripped away from you. Trust that universal forces are at play on your behalf. Whatever was taken off your path was NEVER going to stand the test of time.

When you never saw it coming, it was certainly coming for you. Look past the pain. Feel comfort in the decision that the universe made on your behalf. If it wasn’t right for you; it wouldn’t have happened to you. It may not feel very good at the time, but the wisdom of that decision will see to it that you be placed onto a much better path.

… wrong place, WRONG time.

Timing is everything.

If you’re in the right place in your life, things work seamlessly. If you’re in the wrong place, things don’t come together as easily.

When things come together easefully, you know you’re in the right place. However if you’re struggling for something to come together, it’s a clear sign that it’s not yet time and/or the situation is not right for you.

The universe presents a natural barrier to any situation that is EITHER not right for you or where the timing is not yet right. It has a way of creating resistance on your path to slow you down in order to keep you from advancing in a given direction. Don’t push through that resistance, it’s very purposeful — it protects you from getting onto the wrong path.

Right place, right time. Wrong place, wrong time. Life is like a dance — when you’re out of step with it, nothing works. Trust your path. Trust the fluidity with which things come together or don’t come together. Rest assured that the universe will always bring you to the right place at the right time; you just have to trust in the process to get you there.

cryinggirlwallpaper6… it WOULDN’T be happening.

You’re never dealt a hand you are NOT able to play.

Your life exists in perfect orchestration. All situations that show up, show up for a reason. They show up because they need to be worked through. They show up because there is a key lesson in it for you. They show up to make you BETTER.

Don’t avoid them. Don’t lament them. Don’t get angered by those situations. Just put your head down and get through them the best way you know how. Trust the process of your life — if it wasn’t meant to be happening, it wouldn’t be happening. It’s NOT up to you to fight against what is happening, it is up to you to move through the experience and positively transform it.

When something is challenging you or frustrating you, HAVE AT IT. Don’t run away from it. Accept its presence, stand up to it, and allow it’s wisdom to wash over you. Don’t make it harder then it has to be. Don’t focus on the drama of the situation, focus on your ability to transform it. Before you know it, you will have learned what you needed to learn and a new and improved situation will very quickly show up in replacement. What are you waiting for?

laundry_room_wall_quote_sticker_decal_it_all_comes_out_in_the_wash_d5fc2a17… looking better than it ever did!

Life doesn’t always seem fair. It doesn’t always seem just. But I will tell you this…. it is always divine.

There is always a plan in place that you might not realize.

We never really understand why things happen the way they happen. Never judge an event as being “unfair” to you because you never know exactly why it is happening. We rarely see the bigger picture in place. It may feel as if you continually lose battles, but you may indeed be on the path to winning the war.

Never judge a book by its cover, they say. The secret is to always to do YOUR best and not try to compete with others whose practices might seem dubious at best. Everyone’s efforts will yield the results they sow however long it takes to get there. People can only hide who they are and what they have been doing for so long, the universe ultimately catches up with each and every one of us and makes us accountable for all our actions.

So instead of getting upset the next time “your promotion and raise” goes to someone whom you feel is not as worthy, remind yourself that there is always something there that you do not realize about the situation. Life has an uncanny way of rebalancing the scales and they always get rebalanced when the time is right.

Everything always comes out in the wash. It has to. When you come clean, there is nowhere to hide. Trust your path. Trust that the efforts you put out will always be rewarded. Even if it seems in the short term that you are being “punished.” Trust that your path is divine and that your rewards are just around the corner. No good deed ever goes unrewarded. That is just the way life works.

Letting_Go_by_TheMadScientist… until it has taught you what you need to know.

People and situations come in and out of our lives to teach us something. It is a part of life. The true learning comes from recognizing that if someone or something has left your life, it is because it was time for it to do so. Once we learn the lessons we move on to a much higher playing field (happier, more abundant, etc..)

Trouble begins when we are reluctant to let go of what we know is not serving us (toxic job, relationship, etc..). It is up to you to recognize when a person or situation has outlived its purpose and let it go. You know you are holding on too long when the situation becomes uncompromising, frustrating and you are beating your head on a wall over and over again with no new result. You can hold onto that old lesson but doing so will assure you of reliving that lesson over and over again. But we rarely acknowledge this pattern in ourselves. Instead we prefer to hold on and hope the situation will change in our favor but it never does.

What’s worse with holding on to old lessons is that you can only hold onto them for so long before they get ripped away from you and you are you left with nothing but a sense of loss and abandonment. The universe will eventually clear the decks and take away what you were not strong enough to do yourself.

Why keep yourself back? Recognize when you get the lesson and be strong enough to extract yourself from the negative pattern. Invite change and new life in. You cannot hold onto your “accomplishments” forever, eventually it is time to evolve them and encourage yourself to grow past them. This is how we grow. You cannot lose what is real for you, if it leaves your life, it is because you are meant to grow beyond it.

… and they happen everyday.

Does it seem as if you are always getting the “short end of the stick?” Does it seem that the harder you work, the more you are tortured? If you are feeling this way, it is important to see that, yes, bad things do happen to good people. But more often than not, they happen for a specific reason – to bring you to a better place. 

You can spend your life lamenting situations and feeling bad for yourself as if you are being unfairly punished, but what does that afford you? It only spirals you downward in a negative frenzy where you continue to attract more “bad things” into your life.

Remember life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you. Life happens for you to learn. The wisest amongst us learn that we are not being victimized, but that there is a lesson here and once we grasp the lesson, the sun begins to come out again.

It’s not that bad things happen to good people, it is that good people know how to respond to bad things and subsequently know how to turn those situations around for the better.

Ultimately, it is not what happens to you in life, but how you react to what is happening to you. If a bad thing is happening to you, instead of falling into a victim pattern, choose to see the lesson. Know that you deserve better and are worthy of it – trust in that. That is all that is required of you. Know that goodness is always rewarded because good is its own reward. You cannot control what happens but again, you can control the way you react to it. Good people are conscious, they know how to “change their luck.” It is the nature of duality and karma – everything has its own equal and opposite affect.  When you learn to turn around the bad situations, you will inherently bring about the opposite – the good situations.
