When I work with clients in a private mediumship session, some will want to ask questions about their life direction and are seeking some intuitive insight. I often encourage my clients to trust in “Divine timing.” What exactly does that mean?
As human beings, we often have set ideas in our mind about when things should happen–and even how. When things do not go the way we had planned or envisioned we may get discouraged, or even downright depressed depending on the circumstances and our individual personalities and patterns. We often get timelines in our minds about things such as being married or having children by a certain age. Or perhaps we have a certain salary in our head that we should be earning by the time we reach a certain age. We have a lot of “shoulds” in our minds–whether conscious or unconscious. As I’ve heard it said, we need to stop “shoulding” all over ourselves!
We naturally derive such ideas for our lives through our own family members–either the way they themselves have lived or are living, or by what they tell us we “should” (there’s that word again!) be doing. And let’s admit it, many of us are molded and influenced for better or worse by the omnipresent media stories and images–of people doing, achieving, and “being.” These people, mind you, often live in a rather isolated reality that is nothing like what the majority of us have ever experienced. They are famous, wealthy, privileged, or being raised by family members who are those things. But if we can’t gauge our progress or success by those around us, how do we get a sense that we are on the right track?
This is where developing our own “inner compass” comes into play. We need to get a better sense of who we are as unique individuals–souls–with a unique path, purpose, and desire. After all “success” is a very subjective term, and to think we are all content or happy with the same kinds of lives is silly. We need to allow ourselves to view what seem like “mistakes” as part of our soul journey, and try to learn from them instead of dwelling upon or beating ourselves up over them. But most of all, we need to TRUST that God/Universe/Source has a greater plan for us than our current struggles. When we begin to trust that things are unfolding as they are meant to for us, we are more tolerant of what may seem like “obstacles” on our paths. It’s often the case that we are not being “held back” from something we desire; we are instead being “redirected” and placed on a path to something that will ultimately be much more rewarding–but we can’t see that yet. If we accept that what we want will come in “Divine timing” we can more easily go with the flow and enjoy life–one day at a time.
