A State of Allowing

I have to thank my mom and dad’s cat, Khan, for the idea behind this month’s blog post. I channelled his message before deciding what to write about, and after hearing what he had to tell everyone it was just so obvious that this is what the major theme has been lately, for many of us. Kudos, Khan.

The past couple of months, I’ve begun to notice that the one thing that really ruffles my feathers about living on this planet is the fact that nothing is for certain and there is such a lack of understanding attached to… pretty much everything. We don’t know how difficult our finals for school are going to be. We’re not sure if the boss is going to give us that promotion we’ve been working so hard for. We have no idea when our life partner is going to show up (or if we really will be with them for life)… There are just so many questions left unanswered, and so few clues that the Universe seems willing to give us.

Book cover for Alyson Noel’s “Evermore” – the first in “The Immortals” series. If you’re interested in past lives, reincarnation, the law of attraction, the akashic records, etc., give this YA series a read.

I remember reading a quote in “The Immortals” book series, by Alyson Noel, a few years ago that went something along the lines of “Life isn’t an open-book test”. Reading it made me realize that it doesn’t matter how skilled the intuitives and practitioners who I seek out for answers are; it doesn’t matter what questions I ask when I’m channelling with my Spirit Guides, or how I word the questions when I’m pulling oracle cards: there are just some things we’re not allowed to know.

Admittedly, there are still times when I have difficulty accepting that, as humans, we’re not omniscient. It would just make life here on Earth so much easier if we knew what to expect and when! We would know how hard to study for those exams. We would know whether or not to go ahead and put in an offer for our dream house. We would know when to start shaving our legs on a regular basis and buy some lacy new underwear. It just doesn’t seem fair to be so often left out of the psychic loop.

However, because we can’t change the rules that the Universe has laid out, we might as well work on our ability to just let things unfold as they will. And, admittedly, it feels good to give up the stress of trying to control everything and to figure out all of the answers before they’re ready to be revealed. It feels good to stop trying to force a particular outcome and just be present and experience a state of total allowing. When we do manage to live in the moment and give up control to the Universe, issues and concerns can resolve themselves much more gracefully and easily than when we’re in a rigid state of struggle and manipulation.

It’s normal, even for a Lightworker, psychic or intuitive, to feel anxious about certain events, people or situations, or maybe even a little miffed at the Universe for putting them in one’s path in the first place without making one privy to their purpose and outcome. Even those who provide spiritual guidance to others and are almost constantly connected to the unseen still experience doubt, worry, fear, sadness and anger over not being given all of the answers. None of us get to see all of what the future holds and it sucks. Personally, I’ve shaken my fist at the Universe multiple times in the past couple of months, due to some things just not turning out the way I wanted them to. I too am working on my ability to trust in the Universe and it’s plan.

There definitely is a plan – there’s no doubt in my mind that there is an intricate, elaborate, master plan for each of us and the time that we spend here. I suppose, for the sake of adventure and learning, we just won’t understand it in full until we turn that final page in our life story. And we can learn to be okay with that.
