In this episode, we discuss how exactly divine timing works so that you know you’re on the right path, why certain things are happening for you and spiritual bypassing.
Topics covered include:
- What divine time really means
- How to know when you’re ready
- How to decipher hints from the universe
- When to surrender and when to take action
I’m currently just getting over a cold and I have to share that it’s been really weird being sick because this I’ve been really high vibe despite being sick. This is the first time that I’ve felt so good while also being sick. And I definitely know that it’s because I’ve been putting so much work and effort into my energy. I’m really focusing on having this aura of love.
I’m doing EFT tapping for love (EFT=emotional freedom technique). I’m meditating on love and I’m focusing on being this great energy so that I can attract more love into my life and so that others can feel that too. It’s been really crazy because I’ve definitely noticed a shift in myself and my energy. And by a shift, I mean I’m just smiling all the time.
I’m one of those ridiculously happy people for no reason, but of course, it’s not for no reason. I’ve been working really hard at this and I want you to understand that you can do this too. I’m not special for feeling so much joy and for feeling so great and smiley all the time. You absolutely can do this too.
Some of the things that I’ve implemented, I noticed shifts in myself within a week and within less than two weeks, I had not one but probably four comments from friends that they could feel me either radiating love or that I just felt different, but it felt good to them.
How freaking cool is it to have someone else feel your good energy?
What is divine timing?
What exactly does divine timing mean? First, you need to know that divine timing is always happening. It wasn’t something that I personally recognized until I looked back on my year of spiritual awakening. I began to notice that even the year before my awakening that the universe was placing certain people or certain ideas into my life in so many different ways.
It didn’t click for me that certain people were there to introduce me to certain things, or understand why I kept seeing certain themes or ideas come up multiple times. Now, looking back, I’m able to understand that it was all in divine timing.
Soon you’re going to be able to see the people or the ideas that have come into your life within the last little while and really understand why they’ve been put in your life.
It’s an incredible feeling to know that you’re being guided and that things are really happening for a reason. I absolutely believe that everything happens for a reason and that there’s always a lesson that can be made out of everything, but I also believe that we are co-creators in our life. It’s up to you to co-create with the universe by seeing these things that are being put into your life at divine timing and then working with them.
You’ve got to take the signs and do something with them. The universe is going to keep giving you the signs and keep helping to guide you, but if you’re not doing anything, you’re not going to go anywhere and nothing’s going to change. Your life is not going to become absolutely incredible and as high vibe as it can be.
Divine timing is really just things being placed in your life at the right time for you to act upon them, when you’re ready for them.
How to know when you’re ready
The universe will never give you anything that you’re not ready for. You may argue that and say that things come at you at bad times but you are absolutely ready to deal with whatever it is when it comes.
You have to look back and think about how many challenges you’ve had in your life and see how much you’ve grown from those challenges. Maybe you’re going through a really difficult time or a challenge right now and you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Know that you are absolutely ready for whatever it is you’re facing and you can get through whatever it is that comes your way. You just have to have absolute faith that this test, this challenge, is what you need to grow through in order to up level, in order to become your best self. What you’re going through will teach you the lesson that you need to hear.
Divine timing, the universe, will never give you anything that you’re not ready for. If you weren’t ready you wouldn’t be receiving signs, you wouldn’t be getting the ideas or downloads to do whatever it is you want to do or feeling that you should do.
I know for a lot of people, especially if you’re like me, a type-A personality who absolutely loves to control things and know when things are going to happen, divine timing and the whole concept of it can be really difficult to wrap your head around.
You have to begin to trust that things are being shown to you at the right time, that you are on the right path, that things are happening for a reason.
And remember, things are happening for you, not to you.
You must absolutely grow through whatever is coming your way. You don’t have to go through anything. You are always growing. With every challenge, with every setback, you are growing and when you grow you will always come out better and happier on the other side.
When you’re able to look back and see how far you’ve come, it’s so powerful. And that’s really, really powerful. So I wanted to give you a few examples of divine timing in my life so that you can begin to see that it’s real. And for me the most obvious ones were all around spirituality because as I was really losing my passion for travel and my passion for my travel blog, even before I even connected the dots, that that’s what was happening.
Examples of divine timing in my own life
For over a year I was getting sick when I travelled, was burnt out and overall had a feeling that I should settle down. I also had a feeling of unfulfillment. And I was beginning to burn out from traveling so much and working so much on my blog and really not feeling fulfilled anymore. Those feelings are what brought me to Bali the first time. I thought I went to Bali because everyone comes to Bali, but really it was me being guided here because now I’m back for the fourth time!
There’s just something so special about the island that I’m so connected to. I absolutely needed to come here for a reason at the time that I did, because funny enough, I turned down an invite from a cute boy to go with him to Bali that I met on my backpacking trip in 2016. It didn’t feel right going to Bali and so I continued onto Thailand. The best part was that I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything because it wasn’t my time to visit Bali yet.
Two years later I got the calling to go to Bali and I started being introduced to a lot of people who are into spirituality and personal development. At first, I thought these people were crazy, but so many of them were coming into my life. Of course, it was because I was in Bali but I also felt really drawn to these people. There was something about them that made me want to be around them.
I wanted to hear what they had to say about these woo and crazy topics that I didn’t really understand yet or understand why I was even curious in listening to them. It made no sense. It wasn’t practical to me.
These people were introduced into my life at the right time (divine timing) who had ideas and ways of looking at life that really pushed my boundaries. But I really needed to hear what they had to say because it’s gotten me to where I am today.
But it wasn’t just people, these ideas and concepts I saw coming up in ads and through books and through podcasts as well. None of them were connected, it was like the ideas of spirituality and personal development were coming at me from all different sides and the universe was like, “Okay, now it’s time for you to learn this, now you need to focus on this.”
For a long time I was ignoring the feelings of burnout and being unfulfilled and all the signs of what these people and things were telling me. Eventually, I realized it was my own stubbornness that was stopping me from continuing on the path that I really needed to go down.
I let my walls down, I let go of my stubbornness and I was like, “okay, I’m going to tiptoe into this area of spirituality and see how it goes.” My life exploded from there and has gotten much better and things just make a whole lot more sense.
Now I’m able to look at other areas of my life and be able to understand things better. For example, I’ve been single for quite a long time and I was just waiting for the right person to walk into my life.
Until I realized that I didn’t need to just wait, I actually needed to work on myself. I thought I was working on myself and I thought I was really embracing being single and being independent.
But I kept getting the same lessons over and over that I need to work on myself more than I was, that I wasn’t actually truly working on myself. Now that I’m working on myself, now that I’m working on my energy, like I was saying at the beginning, people are naturally gravitating towards me more, not necessarily men, but I’ve had a lot of women especially who I really feel are going to be great friends and who I connect with so easily walk into my life effortlessly.
This whole lesson of being single for so long is not just about finding a partner. It’s taught me to work on myself first and then I will become a magnet for the right people.
How to avoid spiritual bypassing
I think it’s also really important to note to not use divine timing for spiritual bypassing. This doesn’t mean that you get to sit back and wait for this to happen or to surrender (which a lot of people in the spiritual community like to say).
There must be a balance between the doing, the masculine energy, and surrendering and the flow, which is the feminine energy. If you’re off balance, things aren’t going to work. Sitting back and waiting for everything to happen for you is not going to happen.
You’re being given hints and signs as divine timing and you need to take inspired action in order to level-up, in order to become your best self.
For the last couple of months I’ve been going through some stuff and I kept asking, “why is this happening to me? I’m doing all the work, everything should be flowing to me more easily and it’s not.” I
It’s been a struggle in one aspect of my life, but I’m now starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and understand why it’s been happening for me.
Know that things will get clearer to you. You just have to look for the signs and to understand that it will all work out so long as you take inspired action and not just wait for things to happen. You must take action.
What a lot of people don’t know is that one of the universal laws is the law of attraction, which is what everyone thinks manifestation is about.
But another one of the universal laws is the law of action. The law of attraction is great, but it encourages people to just sit and wait. You’ve got to help create the things that happen for you, you’ve got to follow the universal law of action.
Remember, everything is happening for you, not to you. And it all happens in divine timing, which you are always, always ready to receive.
