So you’re excited about some upcoming plans. You’re visualizing how much fun you will have, counting down until the big day.
And then…..for some reason outside of your control, they’re cancelled.
How do you feel?
Perhaps you feel disappointed, or jinxed, or worse….cursed.
“Nothing ever works out for me.”
Well, we all know that’s not true, but even if it were, that belief is simply an idea you’re having about it. And since your reality is created from your beliefs, that statement may set you running off in directions you probably don’t want to go.
In a world that is NOT random, those cancelled plans occurred for the benefit of all.
Sometimes, however, you might have to look for those benefits, because the Universe can be quite subtle. Those benefits are also in clear view, mind you, but you may have limitations that keep you from seeing them. It’s a dichotomy, to say the least.
Let’s take an example and view it from two angles.
My friend Krystal fosters cats rescued from really bad situations. She just got a new kitten, and she invited me to meet him! This, to me, is like visiting royalty, so we made plans for cat-cuddling, brunch, and Lavender Pear Martinis.
All week I looked forward to driving my underused car up north. After all of those trying times during the work week—like when that one guy refuses to mute himself on a giant Zoom meeting, and the whole presentation is riddled with feedback—there was my cat-hugging session to look forward to when the weekend came.
The night before kitten-cuddling day, Krystal sent an apologetic text. She had to cancel. She had finally found a home for Molly, an older cat she rescued from a really, really bad situation. Molly is 15, deaf, and has kidney failure; and yet she still pours her love on anyone that comes into her line of vision. In other words, a Lightworker in the cat realm. This was a great day for Krystal, who had been looking for a long time for exactly the right person to welcome Molly into their home.
So no kitten (or Molly) cuddling for me. No brunch. No martinis.
So why would the Universe “take away” something we’re looking forward to?
Because it serves us to do so. Not just you as the observer, but everyone involved. Otherwise, it wouldn’t happen. Now this sudden change may not appear to be of service at first glance, but that’s if you’re looking from a 3D perspective. If you choose to view the situation from higher levels, you’ll always see a more expansive reason for the occurrence.
Of course the human part may feel disappointed, let down. This is the result of having specific expectations about how an event will unfold. From a higher perspective, we’re learning that change is a constant. Expectations will always keep us in a limited box of possibilities, when we need not be.
When we can review the situation from multiple angles, the inherent lessons become clear. Compassion is a big theme right now on Earth, so that’s a good place to start.
Can you extend yourself past any initial disappointment to celebrate another’s triumphs?
When you can, then you are a Master.
