Nearly everyone ends up in a situation that was not what they expected or wanted it to be.  For example, you may find your soul mate and discover that they lack the maturity necessary for your relationship to grow and blossom. Another example may be finding the perfect job and discovering within the first month or two that the environment is toxic, and your supervisor or manager is determined to destroy you or have you fired. Things like this happen all the time. Instead of beating yourself up, feeling like a caged animal and letting your fear take over, stop for a moment and just breathe. Remind yourself that you were in that relationship or job because you needed to be there. Whether it was due to financial necessity, fear, timing, it seemed to be the perfect fit or just a hiccup in your ability to manifest what you wanted, you were meant to be there.

Sometimes you need to weather the storm for a while and wait for things to change. In other instances, recognize when the winds of change are upon you as it may be a sign that you need to move on. Stay present. Don’t let the energy shifts and other people’s fears trigger yours. Trust your intuition, common sense and see things for what they are – not what you want them to be. When you do this, you can get back on track more quickly. Utilizing yoga, prayer, meditation, and getting out of your head will help you achieve clarity.

Going forward, look at the experiences you had in these environments and relationships. Have you grown as a person – spiritually, emotionally or in some other way? If so then these situations have done their job. Make sure you assess your belief systems because you will need to change them.

Once you become calmer, make a list of what you want going forward.  Note all negative thoughts, feelings or limiting beliefs that you may have inadvertently included in your original list. Assess how negativity or fear may have sabotaged you. Re-write your list and make it more empowering. Remove any negative words and replace them with positive, empowering ones. Make sure you keep your list, short, sweet, and to the point. Leave out saboteur words like “and”, “not”, “but”, “until”, “once this is done”, etc.” They can limit your ability to manifest cleanly. If you include these words, you may get what you want AND also get what you don’t want. Let go of the past – that which no longer serves or supports you. Stay focused. Go forward with renewed vigor and passion. Most important of all – live your life as fearlessly as you possibly can. Make the next job you take, or the next partner you choose, better than the last one(s). Take your time and remember any delays you experience are there for a reason. Be patient and choose wisely. Timing is on your side.
