Late in July I had the privilege of attending a Goddess festival, a celebration of the feminine and all we have to offer eachother and to the world. It was epic! We shared love, our hopes and our dreams and sealed it with some of the most magical moments I have ever experienced.
When the ceremony started, we all gathered together in a line as the hostess (priestess and lead goddess), saged us and cleared our energy as we danced to the perfect song for the moment. I was filled with happiness, hopefulness and an indescribable curiosity.
That song stuck with me the whole night. That moment forever etched in my brain.
You know how a song can change a moment, make it feel infinite and transcendent? Well the song that was playing did just that.
I vowed to myself that the first thing I would do once I had access to my phone again was find that song.
But as with all important things we plead with ourselves to remember, I forgot. I got to my phone and my mind immediately went blank. What were the lyrics to that song again?
I searched for hours on my phone, typing in any thing I could think of. “Popular songs to play at weddings” (this was totally a song I have heard at one), “popular songs of the 1970’s”, “Soft rock of the 1970’s”… I think you get my drift.
No. such. luck.
Disappointment flooded me. That song, that memory, it filled me with this incredible peace and bliss and it was gone.
Feeling defeated I took a deep breath and a voice spoke up inside of me, reminding me that the universe always knows exactly what I need. When I needed to hear the song again, I would.
Fast forward about a month and a half and you’ve got that magic moment. Remember when all of this happened? Well one morning I had stopped at the story to pick up a few thins before heading into work. As I was getting ready to check out, the man in front of me started talking to me and he reminded me so much of my grandma it made my heart ache. Between the stress of my job and the reminder of my grandpa, I was put over the edge. Tears filled the corners of my eyes as I rushed to get back to my car. Once inside, I turned the key and what song do you think filled the space between my speakers? Come and get your love by Redbone.
A smile exploded across my face. IT WAS MY SONG! I thanked the universe more times than you can imagine and of course, my grandpa because as much as he would have complained about the song being turned up too loud, I bet he didn’t like seeing me sad.
Divine order teaches us to trust where we are and be guided by what takes us. Believe it or not, the greater whole knows exactly what we need and how it can best be given. Have you ever had something not work out, only to have something even better happen?
They say “what you focus on grows”? Well when you start to let go of what you are trying to control and make happen, and start putting trust in the path that the universe is taking you on, you will find that instead of experiencing resistance and stress, you will have effortlessness and flow. Instead of spending your moments worrying about making things happen, you can take empowered action and trust that what’s coming is always going to be the best possible outcome.
With faith comes freedom.
I challenge you to spend the next few weeks letting life flow for you. As things come up, know it is all part of a greater picture, that you are being guided to something far beyond anything you could have concocted yourself. If something doesn’t work out, know that it is because something better is on the way. When doubt fills your thoughts, reassure yourself with the idea that you’ve got the universe (god, love, etc.) and nothing trumps that.
Remember what you focus on expands. Trust deeply that the divine is taking you exactly where you are meant to be and prepare yourself for all the magic that is about to unfold.
Smiles and love,
PS If you love this and want to hear more about divine order, I cannot recommend the book, “Outrageous Openness” by Tosha Silver enough. Seriously, pick it up today!
