720 Words – Personal Growth
You are in the perfect place in the perfect time – right here, right now. It may not be aligned with what your mind is telling you should be in your life, but the Universe has positioned you for growth by having you experience whatever it is you’re going through at the present moment. And the Universe keeps you there for as long as it takes for you to learn what you need to know for the next leg of your journey.
There are times when it seems you've plateaued, that your circumstances have lasted way longer than necessary. You're saying to the Universe, "Alright already! I get it!" yet the situation persists. This is reflective of the need to take right action in the situation. It's not merely the need to understand the lesson, but to determine the next task, decision, or strategy that will move you past the hump.
Start by looking at the circumstance and evaluate your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors as they relate to this particular situation. Are you thinking the same thoughts as you always have in regard to what is transpiring? Do you have the same feelings in relation to what is happening? Are you trying the same behaviors as always? If so, then changing one or all of these will be the thing that moves you past the standstill.
Take a different point of view when considering this condition. Rather than seeing it as right or wrong, good or bad, look at it from an objective, neutral perspective. Remove all of the emotion and see it as though you are a detached third party. Now what do you see? Do you see something that wasn't readily apparent before? Use this new insight to modify your approach, and the situation will shift for the better.
Additionally, asking the Universe for guidance to move past the impasse and then following the message that comes through will allow faster progress to be made. Check yourself for any resistance to change that may bubble up. It may be that it is not yet time to leave behind the current situation. There may be more to learn and more growth required before moving to the next level. If this is the case, accept it and seek to understand it at a deeper level. While frustrating, it is in your life for a reason.
If you really want things to be different, take note of what the Universe it trying to teach you. There are no random circumstances that occur to punish or inhibit. Even with Karma, the situation is there for you to learn and grow, and to put closure to certain relationships and ways of being.
Sometimes you may want to rush your progress, yet obstacles come into your path that prevent you from moving forward. In most cases, the delay will prove beneficial, as you strive to acquire new skills, a new perspective, additional information, or additional interpersonal support. It may be that the roadblock occurs to avoid a detrimental result or aggravation down the road.
By knowing that the Universe acts in the interest of forward motion and believing that everything happens when it is supposed to, it is easier to trust the process that you are going through and to take advantage of all that is held within the circumstance.
Trust is key - trust in yourself, in the Universe, and in the idea that you cannot see the rationale behind everything that happens. There are forces at work beyond your limited human understanding that reach far afield from what is happening directly in your life. Things need to align on multiple levels and they will if you stop resisting and go with the flow of the Universe.
"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." - Ecclesiastes 3:1 (King James version)
Let go of the fear, anxiety, and worry, and tap into the wisdom of the place you are in at this time and in this moment. Release the emotion and open to the guidance that is waiting to be received. What you need in your life is waiting being shown to you. Use gratitude to enhance your understanding of the magick in this moment.
You are always at the perfect place at the perfect time.
