When Things Don’t Work Out as Planned

When things don’t work out as planned something timeless and magical is taking place. Something so much bigger than you is happening, only you can’t see it from your perspective because you’re in the thick of it.

This is the secret to discovering all the good things in life, seeing the life spinning all around you, and feeling safe and secure in the knowing that whatever is happening to you in the now is all leading you toward your highest and best.

It’s a sacred fact of life which at present cannot be proven by science. To see it, to understand it, to know it takes seeing through the eyes of love, realizing (or alt least “allowing”) that everything is connected and perfect, and faith that something that surpasses your ability to understand is at work, here.

There are those of us, maybe you are one of us, who have had a chance to have a glimpse of the power of love and the greater good which is at work and ever present with every breath you take, every 1 volt beat of your heart.

You know this is true. How?

Because, if you look back on your life, you can see (hindsight is 20/20) that everything that has happened to you that was bad or when things didn’t work out as planned that something far better for you was waiting in the wings. Something you would have never seen, known was waiting for you, or was yours for the asking, was not available to you at the time.

You were in the wrong place, the wrong time, distracted by your place in life which you had become so embroiled in that your opportunities to achieve your highest and best were just beyond your reach. For you to be better positioned for the best things in life to be within your reach, something has to change. The further away from it you’ve wandered, the greater the change must be.

Change is shocking and painful, especially if you’re resistant to the idea of change. Drastic readjustments can be tragic, traumatic, and create wounds that leave scars which take time, attention, and love to heal. Not dealing with the pain will hinder the journey to all the best things this life has to offer.

This life has made the idea of just maintaining one’s level of survival, sucking it up, and settling for far less than your highest and best, that there’s an unspoken respect and honor among your peers for settling for mediocrity.

We justify it by looking around and saying, “It could be worse,” as long as we can find someone else who has suffers greater than we do, and so the world (the factions which run it) make certain that everyone, no matter what station in life they are in, can be aware of someone else who suffers more than they do.

Meanwhile, the ultimate force of all life, and even you, your higher self, is hard at work creating challenges to help redirect your path or prepare you for something which lies ahead, which you are unable to be aware of because its impossible to see from your current perspective. And you know this from experience.

So, relax, let your love light shine through the blackness of the darkest night and remember everything happens at the right time.

Settle into the idea that every step you take is right. You never make a mistake, nothing is wrong, and you are not broken, only greater prepared for what lies ahead.

When things don’t work out as planned this is always for your highest and best.

Everything is perfectly perfect.

And so, it is.

Flesh vs Spirit Evolving

You come to Earth and inherit a human body and your journey begins with reconciling your existence as a young spiritual being acclimating to your new environment. At the earliest of age, you are tasked with finding out who you are. Your discoveries accumulate as your identity develops chaining experience upon experience as your sense of self evolves.

You have an inherent desire to be cared for, but it doesn’t take long for you to figure out that taking care of and defending yourself is up to you and you establish patterns to see that your needs are taken care of. This establishes an energy pattern of a particular vibrational frequency which will vary as you make your way through this life, which affects all areas of your life, mental, physical, and spiritual.

The more you struggle to find your own way, the more your ability to connect with your higher spiritual self is closed off as you gain mechanical systems to survive and do the best you can to mitigate the challenges you face in life on Earth. In most, if not all, cases, your higher self is squelched altogether, but it never dies.

At various stages in life, your spiritual self will find ways to garner your attention if an effort to awaken your higher self which has been subdued.

Your higher self will try to poke through in times of stress and struggle. It’s up to you how you respond to hearing this still small voice when it speaks up. Most people just push it away as nonsense, as you continue to make your way through life on your own accord by force of will, determination, accompanied with blood, sweat, and tears.

Flesh vs. Spirit Evolving

This is man’s struggle of flesh against the spirit. Only, as we evolve the struggle of the spirit to emerge becomes more pressing.

For centuries man’s will stomps out potential emerging spirit most of the time, but there’s something happening now, today, right now, our planet is moving through a stage of metamorphosis affecting all matter, life, mankind, including you, too.

A sacred resonance exists in all of life and matter within and throughout all molecules, this energy is no less than purely divine and resonates at the vibration of pure love or above. There exists a harmonic orchestra among all life, matter, and the absence of matter.

Like a sacred carrier wave, God is in all things, everything.

Either this is true, or it is not. What you do with this rejection or realization is up to you.

Your cells are evolving with this harmonic resonance and if you are prone to reject the very thought of it, no problem, for there are forces, highly powerful forces very hard at work to prevent this evolutionary process. So, who of us could blame you, for we were raised from birth to think thusly. Even so, people, just like you and me, are at various stages of awakening the expanding life of liberty and expansion which awaits our species.

Ever notice your desire for change? It’s growing. You find yourself wanting change, finding ways to grab hold of what change you can, only to find it lackluster. You cannot substitute the natural evolution of your being with change which you have been granted or provided yourself via your physical abilities. While it may appease your desire for change in the moment, your human mind/body system is still not satisfied.

Nestled deep within your heart is the central nervous system of your higher self and your connection to the source of all life, but so much emphasis has been placed on the central nervous system of your functioning brain, and little or no attention is placed on your spiritual nature which is where your true self resides, where you hail from, and evolving toward.

Once you begin to awaken you are able to see things as they really are and not like you’ve been trained to interpret life. Life becomes less about you, and more about “us” and our interconnectedness, which is counter-intuitive based on your terrestrial training might dictate.

At some point, as you continue to grow, evolve, and expand you realize that not only are we all “one,” but you have a clearer understanding about your connectedness to all that is, seen and unseen.

If this concept is contrary to how you’re feeling in this moment, no problem. Keep doing whatever it is that is working for you now.

If you are awakened by a moment of clarity from your innermost and highest self? You decide what to do, to push it back down or listen.

There is no judgment as we are all just doing the best we can.

You are still playing an active role as we continue this evolutionary process.

God bless you as you make your way.

Why Do You Get More of What You Don’t Want?

Why is it that when you really don’t want something, it seems like you get more of what you don’t want? You don’t want overdue bills, driving around crazy drivers in traffic, being late for school or work, to lose track of your words mid-sentence, forget where you put something like your cell phone or car keys, or God forbid, get into a romantic relationship with a person just like the last one, or worse. Yet here they are.

Why do you get more of what you don’t want?

Here’s the deal, there is far more to you than meets the eye. Sure, you may have your life under control, and you’re able to help others keep their lives orderly, but why is it that your life seems to be increasingly problematic, when you know better?

Because you’re not just a biological machine, an animated bag of meat with a brain. You are also an energetic powerhouse and spiritual being as well. As much as you might like to deny it, this is true, and both of these parts of you are looking out for your highest good, while society and your support system may not be looking out for your best interests.

The Energetic You

The energetic part of you is responsible for attracting to you the things you think about. Like a magnet, this energy draws in what you think and speak about and doesn’t care whether you like it or not. The more powerfully you think about a thing, the more often it shows up.

So, if you’re thinking of something with a lot of emotion attached to it, you will see more of that thing showing up in your life more often and with more intensity. If you really want more of what you don’t want, simply think about what you don’t want and it will come to you.

Want even more of what you don’t want? Then actually talk about what you don’t want. If you want even more, then increase the emotion you have about it, and begin talking about it with negative emotional energy, and try starting off your topic with, “I hate…” and end your sentences with an exclamation point. Now, watch it roll in even more!

Once you understand how this, you can find ways to adjust your thought process to affect your personal energy field. You can not only start managing your negative thoughts and emotions, but you can start to think and speak in more positive ways about the things you really want to see showing up in your life.

This will attract more of the things you want in your life. This is called manifestation in the Law of Attraction 101.

The Spiritual You

Then there is that spiritual being, which you also are. It works a little differently, and it a lot more sophisticated in how it works than your energetic being.

The greater part of you vibrates at the highest of energetic frequencies, knows only love, and is only concerned about what is best for you. It sees all, knows all, and can summon all the powers seen and unseen to see that you are served up only those things in life which will lead to your highest and best.

The thing, here, is that you and your higher self are not always in agreement as to what would best serve you. While you are easily overwhelmed by the details of life, not unlike being lost in the forest, the greater part of you has an aerial view and can see everything around you. Which direction you are headed, the terrain ahead of you, and the footsteps you’ve left behind.

Since you cannot see the forest for the trees, without a compass you may be walking in circles through your life or may actually be going in the wrong direction. Each step moving you further and further away from where you want to be.

Your higher self can come to the rescue, setting up circumstances, which may appear to be tragic and traumatic, calling in your angels and guides if necessary, to get you back on track, moving in the direction of what you really want in life.

This is why bad things happen to good people because it takes that kind of tragic circumstance to wake us up out of the trance of life and begin to see things as they really are. The most traumatic experiences in life often lead to our awakening. And for those of us who are the most resistant to the awakening, we may have to suffer more than others.

When bad things happen to you, it is serving your higher purpose. It may be hard to imagine when you’re in the thick of it, but it’s true, and you’ll be able to see it more clearly once you are on the other side of it.

Your Social Support System

It’s so easy to get distracted and derailed, even totally lost, when you are desiring a better life, and your friends and family are not as concerned about your well-being as you might think. Granted, they don’t want to see you suffer (too much) and they want you to have good things in your life… Only, not better than the life that they are experiencing.

Of course, this underlying energy is not spoken of outwardly, unfortunately, for the most part, the people you care about want to see you have a better life for sure, just not better than theirs. Why? Because they are seeing your intention to move your life from mediocrity to magnificence. An idea that may have crossed their minds earlier in life, only they gave it up for folly, as most people are likely to do.

If you were to succeed, what message would that send to them?

They might think they had utterly failed in their life, failed their family and friends, and above all, failed to their true selves, and ultimately God. This is a process of thinking that no one would like to entertain. So, better to talk you out of it or even help you fail a little bit, than you have to endure the trauma of having to deal with the decisions they made to settle for a “safe and sane” lackluster life. It’s just too much to have to face for the average person.

Often it is a good idea to find support from like-minded people who desire to see you rise to the heights of your highest and best and encouraging you to grow and change, as necessary, to traverse from where you are and transform into the better you which is waiting for you fully embrace all that you can be.

There are many reasons for tragedy to visit the lives of those who are lost, all of them for your highest and best. The more you understand and embrace this idea, loving all the life you are presented with and in a sense going with the flow, the far easy it will be to adjust and adapt to the changes, allowing you to more easily be in the right place at the right time, moving you more swiftly to that which is your highest and best.

Your Higher Self

There is that higher part of you which resides off campus which is very much a part of you, just as your mind and your body is a part of you. Some people refer to it as your soul, your spirit, or your higher self. Others maintain that these are all different parts of you, your higher self is that part of you which is both outside the body as well as inside and a part of your body.

This is the divine part of your body which has a fuller knowledge of who you are completely, where you have been, where you are going, and seeks to guide and nurture you as you travel this journey of life. Your higher self knows your purpose, message, passion, and mission in life and desires to see you live your life to the fullest, enjoying all that this life has to offer.

Part (if not the primary focus) of society’s mission of is to program you, to keep you separate from, unaware, and even fearful of your higher self. So, it’s no surprise if you think the idea of having a higher self seems preposterous the first time you hear about it. Nonetheless, it is there, waiting for you.

Whether you are aware of it, or not, your higher self is always there inside you, walking beside you, above and all around you 24/7.

While your mind is more focused on your body’s concerns in the third-dimensional world, your heart, intuition, and your feelings are more connected to your higher self which is more concerned about the big picture of your life.

Because of our social programming, usually, it is our mind which stands between us and our higher selves. Knowing this, your higher self uses your heart, intuition, and feelings to knock on the receptors in your head to urge you to break free from your societal trance.

Every once and a while, it does, and you have clarity, even if it doesn’t seem to make sense, but the more it happens, the more sense it makes. Your higher self will present you with circumstances and decision-making opportunities which will result on realigning yourself with your higher purpose.

These redirections may be unpleasant to the experience of the body but are necessary to recalibrate your life and get you back on track.

At some point, as you become more aware of the existence of your higher self and the divinity of it all, you may seek to take a more proactive role in connecting to your higher self to better accomplish your highest and best.

When you awaken and become aware of your higher self and begin the process of integrating the power of your mind with the power of the superconscious part of you, you make a massive evolutionary shift from a slave of society to master of your own destiny.

You possess the power needed to fully engage in all your gifts, talents, and special abilities to accomplish all the greatest things in this life, to enjoy life to its fullest, filled with love, peace, harmony, and happiness. This is the personal empowerment which affects not only your world but the world at large. This is your true reason for being. This is your destiny.

Knowing that your higher self uses your heart, intuition, and feelings to communicate with you, means you can start trusting and listening to what that part of you is trying to say.

When you want something, and your desire is inspired by your higher self, in the moment that you became aware of your desire for it, it was given to you in all its fullness. The higher part of you can see you already having it because this part of you is unencumbered by the same restrictions of time and space that you are. If you can trust and listen to your higher self, it can guide you through the maze, removing anything which stands between you and your heart’s desires.

You can use your higher self as a compass to help navigate and guide you throughout life, more effectively from where you are to where you want to be.

You know when you are on track when you are feeling good, you know it’s time to readjust your direction when you are not feeling good. When connected to your source, the right track feels good. Trust your feelings.

Just like anything else that you desire in life, good health is waiting for you and your higher self will help guide you to a healthier you, full of joy and longevity as you achieve and receive more from this life than you previously thought possible.

It is not uncommon for those who awaken and maintain this connection to find themselves receiving healing from life-threatening disease with little or no effort by stepping into their divinity.

Quieting your mind and listening for what your higher self has to say to you in the spaces between your thoughts is another way to deeply connect to that part of you which is divine in nature. So, you may see yourself prone to consider taking time out for rest, relaxation, and meditation.

As you allow this relationship to blossom, life will get easier as you start to understand the truth behind what is going on, and you will be able to find joy in all things as you celebrate your newly expanded life.

Why Life Doesn’t Make Sense

You’ve been living your life, doing the best you can with what you have, still, you wonder why life doesn’t make any sense.

That’s because you’re not looking at the whole picture. When you look at your life from the perspective of your “self” through your eyes, based solely on your life experience within the confines of the life that has been set out for you by your family, beliefs, society, and the world as we know it, it is nearly impossible to make any sense of it all.

That is, unless, you resign yourself to just being a cog in the wheel, a part of the machine which only needs to operate at a bare minimum to affect the greater whole for the benefit of someone somewhere else, and that is all.

You are defined as the “you” that was born into a particular family, in a body with its limitations which you know all too well, the situations, circumstances, and experiences which you’ve endured up ‘til now, all representing the result of you as expressed in your flesh, and that is all.

If you are thinking there’s something just not right about all of this, you are right.

You do not have enough information, from this perspective, to realize who you really are, so how could you make sense of any of this?

Embedded in your DNA are the keys to unlocking your higher self and your purpose.

You are right to wonder if there is something more, because there is so much more for this life for you.

Clues can be found among your natural talents, passions, and gifts. These are indelible markings which long to express themselves but may be muted by the constraints of this life.

As your conscious ponders why life doesn’t make sense, the higher part of you is calling your forth to release that sacred and divine part of you fully engaged with your purpose, message, passion, and mission. Yes, you did come to this planet with a destiny and it is longing to be expressed.

From the perspective of your higher self, all the challenges and struggles of this life take on new meaning. All this was perfect in every way. Nothing bad, or wrong, all divinely set forth to perfectly equip you for your emerging self.

Now, you are beginning to realize that there is a purpose for your being. You are here to heal others or the world by connecting in a way that only someone could having lived the life you have lived.

You have come with a particular message to deliver to others of the world, in a voice and method of delivery which is unique unto you.
Or, you have come to be an active part of the evolution of the human race. Your active role is critical to bringing humanity to its tipping point of enlightenment, the next evolutionary leap forward for our world.

Seek to align yourself with everything that you are. Make the adjustments in your life to be doing the things you love, connect to your unlimited powerhouse of unconditional love which resides within you for yourself, others, and the world at large and all these things will be added unto you.

You can become all you could be and so much more.

You have an exciting journey just ahead.
