I've been away for a while, but I'm back. And better than ever. Let's get into today's blog which, interestingly enough, doesn't revolve around a specific Tarot card at all. Let's dig in!
I'm finding in my readings for people a sentence is coming up time and again. In fact, it's coming up so often nowadays I feel comfortable with sharing it on my blog page, newsletter, and facebook and twitter feeds without jeopardizing the confidentiality of my clients. The phrase that's coming up over and over again is this: "The Universe is waiting for YOU." So I decided to post it to my facebook page to ask my family, "What's the Universe waiting for YOU to do?" Is there a higher calling you've been dismissing? Is there a passion you've put on the back burner? Is there somebody you've forgotten you were that is BEGGING to come out and be free?
I say this time and again: While the Universe is waiting for you to make a move it puts everything else behind schedule as well. We are INTRINSICALLY tied to one another. We are NOT alone. We are in this thing together. So when one person holds back, it gums up the entire process. And the Universe can't evolve as quickly because somebody's sitting on their thumbs. Waiting. And while we're waiting, the Universe is waiting on us.
As it is above, so it is below. If we subscribe to the theory we are ever evolving spiritual beings here on earth, then it stands to reason the Universe is ever evolving as well. To be sure, the Universe has been around a LOT longer than the sum of it's parts (us). So it's got a leg up on the whole "evolution" thing. It's been doing this for a while. However, the Universe needs US to continue to evolve so that WE can add to the "collective evolution" of the Universe itself. So when we don't actively pursue our own spiritual evolution, (HOWEVER that may manifest in our lives), it slows the Universe down.
I can already hear some of you grumbling. "You don't know me, Stephen! You haven't lived my life. You don't know what I've been through. You don't know what I can and can't do. The truth is, this 'higher calling' I've supposedly been called to? Guess what? I can't do it." And you know what? You're right. You're absolutely right. If you've already determined in your heart, and even through the compelling "evidence" of what's happened in your past you've determined you can't do it, guess what? You can't. There's nothing I can say or do to make you feel otherwise.
But before you click the red X, let me give you a couple more things to think about. 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV) states: "No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." So God doesn't put anything on us that we can't handle. So first of all, if you're saying, "I can't" it's YOU that's saying "I can't" and not God. God believes in you. Do you believe in yourself?
The other thing about 1 Corinthians 10:13 that can sometimes go unnoticed is what's BETWEEN the lines of the verse. I've always felt the other thing implied in that verse is this: "You Are Uniquely Qualified For The Specific Job The Universe Sent You Here For." Let me say that again: "You Are Uniquely Qualified For The Specific Job The Universe Sent You Here For." One more time: "You Are UNIQUELY QUALIFIED For The SPECIFIC JOB The Universe Sent YOU Here For." Now whether or not you BELIEVE that is up to you.
So I ask my family again: "What is the Universe waiting for YOU to do?"
I wish us all nothing but blessings as we figure out and ultimately embrace what the Universe wants from each of us.
