It often sounds like the stuff fairy tales can be made of, when you meet that person that just clicks, when the event pops up that was meant to be or you turn left instead of right and find just what you are looking for. I often refer to it as divine timing, gotta love the word divine and well nearly everything is about timing wether we like it or not.
I have had a couple of experiences lately that have really struck me, I have met a person who is so on the same page as me yet not doing the same as me, it has opened a whole new channel of possibility and growth which is beyond exciting in my world. I am also amazed by the amount of experiences that simply present themselves even when not searched for, yet they line up exactly with my needs, like stepping stones in a movie that magically appear in the water.
I don't know if you will remember from a previous blog post that I had been searching for the 'thing' I was destined to do since my 30's, since I first definitively knew that there was something coming, something that would help others yet not in nursing. I used to swing from excited to frustrated and even pissed off, laying awake some nights talking to the sky, saying come on show me! I just want to know and get on with it. But even back then as frustrated as I would get I knew and understood divine timing, I actually could see it as a child, I have always been able to see the bigger picture of things quickly, often taking things into account others couldn't see.
( As a kid I would often overhear adult conversation and be thinking why can't they see that this may be the reason or that influences the outcome, or its all falling into place, back then though kids were absolutely not allowed to speak up in adult conversation - and don't get me wrong I didn't have an adult brain I could just see stuff they couldn't that affected what they talked about )
Divine timing to me isn't necessarily about the thing being divine, it may even be unpleasant or down right awful, to me it is about when things happen and how they line up with all that came before and all that will come after. The divinity is in the flow, the feeling its meant to be and what we gain from the experience. Thats why negative experiences are also divine timing because they have a purpose and there is always something to be gained, the hard part is working that bit out when things feel so awful.
For me there is less negative now and more fabulous, and I will embrace that with open arms as I have had many moments of both.
So how does it all fall into place? Well I think it is as simple as acceptance and allowing for things to happen in the time that they will present. The more I seem to try to control things the less flow there is, the more I try to analyse things in detail the less progress I make. It really is trusting and believing that all will work out. Oh and a wee bit of understanding that there is no finish line, life is constant evolvement.
Now don't get me wrong, I am not sat on a cushion at home facing skywards waiting for life to happen, I have a list as long as my arm and I happen to have long arms (useful for other shoppers in a supermarket), Of course there needs to be action and I can feel time pushed and frustrated, but on the whole I stop - breathe take a step back and bring it down to if it ain't happening yet well its just not the right time. Are my responses/emotions feeling good ? - nope - then there is resistance somewhere to the flow of things so it just ain't the right time. And BOOM when it is the right time there is that aha moment of knowledge &/or that blissful feeling of things 'just falling into place'.
To tune in with what feels good/right, listen to your heart, your mind and your gut.
