Column: The magic of divine timing

We live in an era of instant gratification. If we know what we want, we can find it online in a few seconds. Technology is advancing so rapidly that it’s “spoiled” us in terms of convenience, thus cultivating our impatience.

When what you want is “not happening” in your life, it helps to make the effort to look at it differently. Look at it from the point of view that what you desire is coming together for you, but in ways that are not yet apparent.

Meanwhile, to make the best of it, remind yourself often how much has to go on behind the scenes to bring what you want into reality.

Something else to consider when what you want is not manifesting, is because the direction is not right for you. Your delays and challenges are simply fate, saving you from something that is all wrong for you. This is because a bigger plan is in play diverting you from the direction you wanted, so that you can move toward something better.

Relax into life’s flow. When you can do that, you will enjoy the process of life more. Trust in the force of life that is moving every aspect of reality to its next best expression.

Daily mission: Focus on the blessings in your life and marvel at the wisdom in the universe that brought it to you at the right time.

Trust that everything that happens is for your highest good, even if it doesn’t feel like it.
