I’ve been hearing from all over the place how there seems to exist in a lot of people’s lives right now a great deal of unknown. By and large, it really seems to agitate folks.
I’m not really sure why but as long as I can remember I’ve felt comfortable with the unknown. It doesn’t scare me. I thought I would write this post to give you a couple of analogies to come back to if you are in the camp where it does unsettle or scare you.
I think of the unknown like a dark room. Just because the lights aren’t on and I can’t see all the cozy furniture doesn’t mean it is not there. Maybe I’m at home in the unknown because I am by nature a psychic—which even for me is mysterious! For example, I would be hard pressed to describe to someone exactly how I do readings. I mean I could describe to you what it feels like from my perspective— and maybe if you are interested I will do that in another post sometime. (Let me know in the comments if you are.) But even so I still think it’s all very mysterious!
Last weekend I was at a party when a woman approached me. She said, “I’m Maria—do you remember me? You did a reading for me in person about 9 years ago.” She looked familiar but honestly, I purposely try to let go of the details of the readings I do after I do them—that’s just too much information that doesn’t belong to me or have any action points for me to keep in my head/being! In any case, she went on to say, “At that time you told me that there was another man for me and you described him. When you said it I just couldn’t really believe it—I was still reeling from my divorce. Well, I wanted to tell you– he’s here with me tonight! We’ve been together for almost as long!”
Obviously I love this! It’s so fun when my clients approach me to say, “You know that thing you said to me ____ years ago well it’s happened.”
But that is not the point here. What I want to say is– the world is mysterious. Sometimes things don’t turn out how you thought, sometimes they shift or change form, sometimes the timing doesn’t align in exactly the way YOU had hoped– but it is okay. Or sometimes it looks as though the room is dark when there is really a surprise party of your friends waiting for you in there!
When I was a teenager one of my best girlfriends threw me a surprise party. I walked in her house—and because she was one of my besties I just headed up to her bedroom to put something in there before joining her downstairs. When I got to her room—and I’m not even sure she knows I saw this—the floor was covered in shoes. Girls shoes, male shoes, shoes everywhere. I remember my mind went totally blank. Sort of like– in today’s speak “WTF!?” (We didn’t text in abbreviation, or in any form, in those days.) But my brain literally couldn’t even compute it– it was so surprising to me. I saw the shoes and then —- zzzz! It was like the screen of my mind went blank. Slowly I turned around and walked downstairs to where I knew she was. I still couldn’t put together the meaning of it but obviously I understood there were likely many people there. You can guess what happened…
Still when I think of that memory, those shoes, I feel the love. It didn’t matter to me that the surprise was accidentally blown by my own random errand— even in my mind today those shoes symbolize the love of all those people who HAD shown up to celebrate with me—and my girlfriend who made it happen!
I would like to encourage you to think of this time period of unknown like that. You may, depending on how sharp your intuitive senses are, be getting clues like I did with the shoes. (Not saying my intuition led me there that day—it was probably just my PJs that I wanted to drop in her room!) Still, be okay with the mystery and the “WTF” of it all. Because guess what—that is what is happening. Fighting it, or coming to conclusions that you don’t yet know are true or not, will not help you!
Time and time again I’ve seen in my life (and that of my clients) that when one thing that I thought I wanted doesn’t work out—it is because another better thing is waiting for me. Like the client who approached me last weekend– still sitting in heartbreak then and now well on the journey with the love of her life. I could give you MANY other examples from my life and my student’s and client’s lives. And I do share some of my own personal stories in my book, “Getting Answers: Using Your Intuition to Discover Your Best Life.” (And if you haven’t already– you can download the first part of it for free on my website.)
Instead, I’m just going to say now, consider this unknowing period like the dark room—filled with– even if unbeknownst to you– comfy furniture, friends, love, and the sustenance and goodness you need to move you to the next level/moments/period of your life. I’m telling you from experience—if it’s not what you thought or hoped, what is waiting for you is even better than you can imagine.
