How many of us greet change by digging in our heals and holding on to the status quo for dear life? I know I have been forced into many changes over the years – kicking and screaming the whole way. None of us like change. We would prefer that things stay as they are, even if we are miserable. It is better to face the known, no matter how horrible that known is, than to face change and the unknown.
We pray for our lives to become as we want them, but then when Spirit causes the changes necessary for our prayers to be answered, we fight them every step of the way. You ask Spirit for prosperity. Maybe to have the prosperity you have asked for, it is necessary for you to lose your present job and find a better one. So, your job becomes a burden, the boss is cranky, you have problems with your coworkers, etc. The longer you attempt to hold on to the job, the worse your working conditions become until finally you are fired and no longer have any choice in the matter.
If we only realized how much easier it is to take a deep breath and allow the changes to wash over us. To embrace the changes and allow Spirit to work in our lives. To have the total TRUST necessary to know that we are moving into the future we have craved.
When we can do this, change happens much faster and much smoother. Instead of spending months or years in an unhappy job situation, we listen to Spirit and keep our eyes open for the new job Spirit has planned for us. Within a few weeks, we hear about a job opening which is everything we have ever dreamed of. Instead of fighting the changes, we embrace them and step into a wonderful job. The transition is smooth instead of traumatic.
So, as you are faced with the changes coming up, learn to take a deep breath when things seem chaotic, ask Spirit to guide you, and be open to all possibilities. Embrace the changes and look to the future with enthusiasm.
With Love & A Greater Understanding,
