“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
~ Paulo Coelho ~ The Alchemist
yes, Yes, YES…. I love it when the universe conspires in my favor! I think it happens more times than not for most of us and yet we don’t receive it because we shift the universal energy in another direction and before the blessing can fall from the sky, we send our lives on a detour away from our dreams without even knowing it. Let me tell you what I mean.
The other day I was texting with a friend a number of wonderful things happening in my life right now. One of the texts I sent said… “The universe is conspiring in my favor and knowing that the window only stays open for so long I know I have to slide through it while it is open…” While that IS the text that I sent, what I was about to send was a text that said… “The universe is forcing my hand…” Fortunately, before I could send that message, I realized that THIS statement/text could have, in an instant, blocked my blessings for many years. This same type of blocking, self sabotage may be happening to you. Why was I saying “forcing my hand?” The things happening in my life are wonderful things I have wanted, envisioned, prayed about and meditated on… and now I wanna say I’m being forced?? Seriously?? The nerve of me!! LOL
I am certainly not a “Secret” guru nor a great student of the Law of Attraction but let me say this… No one, and I mean NOBODY can prove to me that the laws of the universe, including the Law of Attraction are not in affect for us, ALL of us, all the time. The Universe does, and will continue to conspire for us in our favor bringing to us what we ask for and affirm, no matter if its “the Universe is conspiring in my favor” OR “the Universe is forcing my hand.” The latter sounds a lot less pleasant sending a message to the universe that I don’t like it and don’t want it.
“I remember the point in labor when I knew I just had to LET GO…”
I hear this all the time. Women who are having an empowering un-medicated birth often will say in that moment of realization, when they let go of controlling the outcome, and shift to having faith in things happening the way they have envisioned it… That’s a beautiful space to be in and that’s when Birth… Magic… Blessings happen.
Whew… I’m happy I changed that text message :-). It can be a scary, revealing, empowering, exciting, spiritual, transformational, thing to experience the truth of the Universe…. When we Let Go and Let God… things happen in our lives and we move into the space to “Birth Something Beautiful”

You can’t force birth. You can’t force the timing of your dreams, desires, and blessings. All we can do is speak it, believe it, scratch that…. KNOW it and then put in the work towards it and when it is time… we have to take a step back, Let Go and Let Birth and in that space… magic happens.
