Why is it that when you are manifesting something, and really looking forward to it, does it seem to take forever to come to you? This could happen for many reasons, and divine timing is one of them.
Also, there are times when we are hung up on getting what we want when the universe is preparing us to receive our desires by giving us what we need first. Just as a squirrel gathers acorns for the winter, we are gathering what we need before getting what we want.
If this process didn’t happen, we may not appreciate what we wanted in the same way.
While this can be frustrating at times, it’s actually the greatest gift that the universe can give us. Also, remember that change doesn’t always happen overnight.
In our society, there is this idea that we have to take on as many tasks and obligations as possible, preferably without anyone’s help.
While independence is an important value of mine, it can be taken to extremes, and this could have consequences for us.
First of all, we can become completely overwhelmed if we try to do everything by ourselves. This could decrease our energy and increase our stress levels. Also, when we ask for and receive help from others, we are allowing those people to be of service to us.
The third benefit to asking for and receiving help is that we actually increase our ability to receive abundance and prosperity. This is because we are literally telling the universe that we are open and willing to receive. Doesn’t that make asking for and receiving help much more exciting?
You set your intentions, said your affirmations, and cleared out some limiting beliefs. You engaged in your spiritual practice, took action on your goals, and continued your mindset work. Now, you are in alignment with your manifestation efforts.
However, time has gone by, and nothing seems to happen. What’s going on? Were you so focused on the timing of your goals that you missed the blessings? When we focus on the “when” and “how” something will occur, we miss the signs, synchronicities, and messages from the universe that are directing our steps.
Several days ago, I took uber to the bank. The driver asked me whether I was working or going to school, and I explained that I am a psychic medium. He told me that his family received comfort from visiting a medium, so I took a risk and offered some business cards. The message from the universe was clear. Take action, engage in your manifestation practice, and Spirit will work out the rest.
I attended a private Catholic college which happened to be very expensive. Each semester, there was some concern over how to pay my tuition without taking out more student loans.
At the end of each semester, I would repeat the ritual of saying goodbye to my friends because I wasn’t sure if my grades or financial situation would allow me to return. However, I was taught that if I prayed for something and it was meant to happen, God and the universe would provide. Well, that’s exactly what happened.
Whenever we are in need, the first thing to do is ask the universe. However, be mindful of what you’re asking for because the universe always says yes.
