Somebody said to me many years ago: “Do you want to know how to make God laugh?” Without thinking I just said: “I do not know”, and the reply was: “Tell him your plans.” Lo and behold, those words became a key factor in my life and my thinking about the future. I am going through a phase at the moment where I am thinking a lot about the future, but many things I have planned to do has not quite worked out. I find myself in a no-mans-land, realising that some of the plans I have made is not meant for me, not at this moment in time anyhow.
The last three years have been the biggest growth period in my life. The plans that I made kind of was right, but they took me in another direction. The place this new direction took me to was even better than the place I had planned to go to. One could say I have now found new, fertile ground where new people and opportunities simply have just entered, offering me new thought and new challenges that 18 months ago I would never have believed possible. So, a thing to remember, when you feel as if your plans are not working out: there is always a reason. Once I am standing still that is when I have the opportunity to see what actually is around me and what is happening in the here and now.
‘If we speak from the heart we do not have to make plans, we just send out the request to the universe.
A few years ago I asked them about something very special and personal to me that I wanted to achieve success in, not dreaming that it would ever be possible. On this occasion I did not make a plan. I just sent out a request, not thinking I would receive a reply. Therefore, quite unexpectedly one day, a person that I did not know knocked on my door. I allowed that person to come into my private world. It is fascinating, because if that person had not appeared I would not have realised that I was ready to meet the challenge and going forward to working with something new.
For me it was like an awakening. Somebody heard me and offered me the challenge. This has also proved to be a time of discovery, realising facets of my personality that was either long forgotten or completely new for me. If we speak from the heart we do not have to make plans, we just send out the request to the universe. Then when the time is right and we are ready they will send a messenger that will activate the process.
So when we make our plans, do they come from us or do they come from spirit? My spirit counterparts work so hard to keep me in touch with myself so that I can follow a road that is right for me and my soul; the soul’s journey.
