Setbacks–How Do You Deal With Them
Yup! Another SeededBuzz column today. And another from Bonita Kay Summers Intuitive Perspective. When You Don’t Get What You Want is a bit different as it is a video blog from Bonita. It’s the first time I’ve linked to a video here. I like her message as it is truly what I believe. One of the things that resonated deeply with me is what she said about The Universe knowing that we don’t need what we want when we seek it. God/Source/The Universe whatever entity you put your trust in knows beyond doubt what is best for us. As I’ve maintained here at my own blog since its inception is the fact that we have a predetermined set of circumstances that we simply cannot change, as in predestination. I truly believe this and if you look back at that link I just inserted with the word predestination I think you’ll come to see the value in understanding exactly what that term means to me and quite possibly to you as well. Another example in her video column that spoke deeply to me is where Bonita discusses about Messages, warnings and events. I have some really good friends who owned a business in the town I live in and for the longest time they kept the business open long past when they should have.
They’d been getting subtle messages from the universe that it was time to move on. They ignored those messages. Warnings came next. Then the event happened where the business was taken away from them. If they had heeded the messages then the event would not have occurred as it did.
Fortunately, as is ALWAYS the case, my friends are now in a much better place then they were when they owned the business. That’s another thing we all have to remember, that no matter what the challenge that arises in our lives, the challenge always makes room for something better.
Bonita also uses a phrase I’m fond of:
When a door closes, a window opens. We have to be cognizant of looking for that opened window.
We have to make a habit of looking for the window. Many of us are unaware that this even happens. We automatically think that when something we deem destructive occurs in our lives, that life as we know it has ended and there is no way out of the current sent of circumstances we happen to find ourselves in.
That can’t be further from the truth! God/Source only wants what’s best for us and what’s best for us may be a clearing away of the old to make room for the new. When something of a challenge arises we must be prepared to find the blessing. For there is always a blessing. As Bonita said in her blog:
When you don’t get what you want, trust that you’re on the right path. Trust that the universe knows better than you.
The Universe always has your best interest at heart.
I LOVE her quote where she says:
So often when we’re trying to make things happen and they don’t it may be a message that our lives are supposed to take a different direction.
If we can ONLY remember this and not only remember it, but put it into practice in our daily lives, can you imagine how much stronger we can be? How much better we can be? How much healthier we can be?
Let’s see if we can start down a new path where we recognize when a door closes and find that opened window.
Let’s see if we can start down a new path and recognize when something we want so badly that doesn’t occur and see if we can realize that something better is waiting around the next corner.
Can we do that? If so our lives will markedly improve.
Let’s make a resolution right here and right now that we will.
Be Happy! Be Well! Be Positive!
Blessings to you.
