Why Things Didn’t Go the Way You Wanted Them To-Mastin Kipp

This was in my inbox this morning…talk about perfect timing ❤

 

A Divine Storm, as I call them, are moments in your life when you feel like life/The Divine/The Universe is against you. Nothing is going well.

You question everything and maybe even say something like “Why is this happening to me?”

What I’ve come to find, is that moments like this are powerful opportunities to grow. Divine Storms are wake up calls. They are not ushering in the end, but rather clearing space for what’s trying to be born in your life.

But – we tend to interrupt the process.

We hang on to how it was and fear how it could be. And perhaps we slip into assuming the worst, instead of preparing for a miracle.

You see, when you go through a crisis, a hard time, a moment of pain – there is always, and I do mean always, a breakthrough on the other side.

And just past the breakthrough, the new awareness, the inevitable “aha moment” you’ve been searching for – comes redemption.

We live in a Universe that specializes in redemption.

We need not worry. We need not assume the worst.

But rather, make our aim to surrender our Will to Divine Will.

Instead of trying to make The Divine make sense, we release the need to know why things happen as they do and step into the trust that we are being guided in every moment.

And we choose to believe that what we are going through now is preparing us for what we desire.

You are not being punished; you are being prepared.

Prepared for more love.

Prepared for more impact.

Prepared to inspire change in others.

Prepared for more awareness.

Prepared for your dreams.

When we step out into the sweet unknown, we can release the thoughts of pending doom, or life falling apart.

We can choose to believe that when life falls apart, it’s not over, but rather the energy is moving, changing, shifting to reflect the changes in our inner world.

We need not fear the changes but embrace them with a feeling of sweet surrender that our Creator knows what’s best for us.

And in doing so, we can begin to find peace within transition; we can bring meaning within loss, and we can find recovery within our addiction.

You are being prepared.

What no longer serves you is being removed from your life, and new life and a new power is coming to you.

At first, it won’t make sense. But soon, you will know why things had to be the way they were.

Until then – assume the best. Don’t stop a miracle in progress.

Remember to get out there, take action and make it real.
