Divine Timing

I talk about time a LOT, because it’s one of the things that is really pronounced in my life.

.

For example, I used to always “run late”… like… STUPID late… like… ALCOHOLIC late (for my recovered friends… I know you know JUST what I mean!)

.

One of my amends to myself & others was to honor their time (& mine), so I did my best a long time, sometimes making myself sick with anxiety trying to ensure I was not a minute late, no matter what.

.

But that wasn’t really honoring myself- making myself sick over something.

.

I also got very into manipulating the illusion of time, & I do love to play with time in this manner! (But that’s probably for another post entirely…)

.

Anywhoooo! At some point more recently, I’ve learned to really trust the Divine Timing of things.

.

I don’t mean, “hey, I’m not being responsible and running late…” because being RESPONSIBLE is a HUGE PART of having a spiritual practice that is NOT BASED on spiritual bypassing.

.

But there are some days, like yesterday, where, due to circumstances beyond my control, I was 10 minutes late to an appointment.

.

I could feel the anxiety rising up, & then I would try & dissipate it by saying to myself:

. “okay, Freedom, is this anxiety helpful to you? By that I mean: is having this anxiety going to get you there in time?”

.

“No.”

.

“So is this anxiety SERVING you in any way?”

.

“No… I just USED to think it would help me be quicker…”

.

“Can you do anything to be quicker?”

.

“No.”

.

“Well, there is you answer. Let’s try to relax into all of that now… how do you feel?”

.

“Better. More grounded…”

.

…but closer to the time I needed to be there I felt the anxiety surge up again… & I said to myself:

.

“I talk an AWFUL LOT about Divine Timing… so I suppose to be living in my TRUTH, I should ACTUALLY BE TRUSTING THAT THIS IS ALL ON TIME AS IT IS…”

.

😅

.

And so it is. It is ALL PRACTICE, is my point here, y’all. (And it’s all ON TIME ALWAYS!) I PRACTICE making responsible choices. I PRACTICE being on time. I PRACTICE releasing my anxiety. I PRACTICE putting my faith into actions..

.

I PRACTICE TRUSTING.

.

Trusting myself, trusting God, trusting the timing of my life.

.

Love🧡Freedom
