Recently our sibling was talking with our mom about what mom was going to do when she went back home. Our mom had fallen, hurt herself and was in a care home for a short time. Our sibling was telling mom that she had to make some changes when she got home like getting rid of a couple of dogs and the house. Mom wanted to keep all her dogs and to stay in her home.
With this story, I was reminded about a valuable experience I had with my husband a few years ago. My husband Jimmy is an amazing journeyman carpenter. He loves finishing work and back then in his current job he wasn’t getting much finishing work to do. I found myself trying to talk him into quitting his job and starting his own company. When Jimmy was upset about work, I would bring up the topic of self employment. It wasn’t received well. Eventually after years of being with him I learned it wasn’t about what I wanted and stopped talking to him about changing jobs.
Now as I heard our sibling talking with mom…it helped me to have a greater understanding of what the ‘soul’ wants. I hadn’t looked at it that way before. What I thought Jimmy should do and what he wanted to do were two different things. It wasn’t about what I thought he should do! That realization was very humbling for me…very freeing for me.
In hind sight I can share the perfection in what I observed in the unfolding process:
- Jimmy experiences so much support from the Universe in his current job…confirmation he is where he is supposed to be. I have witnessed if the timing isn’t right for him…he experiences a lot of conflict as he wrestles through challenges that show up unexpectedly. When he does decide to do something…the timing is ‘right’ for him and magic happens!
- Years ago, mom didn’t have a great experience in a care home. She didn’t even want to discuss moving into a home. After this current fall, she was put into a care home and had a very positive experience. The Universe was so gentle with her…guiding her to feel better about the pending decision to move one day soon.
When it comes to the people in your life…what are you learning about what you think they could or should be doing? Do the people listen to you…or are they somehow guided in ways we may not think about?
What are you learning about yourself? For yourself, are you aware of what your soul wants…what your soul is longing for? Maybe people around you are trying to convince you to do things that don’t feel right to you. Maybe you are doing that to others. Can you see how the Universe has a hand in our day to day life?
There is nothing to change…this is about awareness. The awareness may help you on your journey forward.
