“A tree that is unbending is easily broken.” ~ Lao Tzu
“Cathy, you gotta be flexible” my Dad would say as I was complaining to him about how my plan for changing the educational system as a 1st year teacher wasn’t going exactly as I expected. Why weren’t my ideas working? Why was I receiving so much resistance? I was steadfast in my thought process…never allowing for any other ways to “skin – the – cat”, so to speak. I was not open to the Universe setting positive plans in motion to bring about the results I desired. I was not being FLEXIBLE. Thank you, Dad, for those wonderful words of wisdom. Now I finally get it. And so does Life Coach, Andres Schulman as she shares her thoughts on “Being Flexible”.
Sometimes the universe surprises you with unique opportunities, and often these unique opportunities have been presented to guide you exactly where you wish to be!
A chance encounter at the grocery store might lead to a soul mate relationship. An impromptu vacation may lead you directly to your dream career.
All manifestations happen this way: You’ve gotta be in the right place at the right time!
Now, it’s all well and good to have daily routines and a way of “doing” things, however for many people, routines get in the way of conscious manifestation.
When we are unwilling to change our routines, or give up some control, we block a great deal of the guidance coming from the universe. After all, how can we be in the right place at the right time if we’re not willing to show up when the time is right?
It’s important to realize that flexibility is a core component to conscious manifestation.
Despite the fact that many people believe you must do things the “right” way, or only “your way” in order to be successful, this is simply not the case. Conscious manifestation is about following your intuition, NOT about following a pre-prescribed path you decided on earlier.
You can do everything the “right” way, and still fail. You can also do everything the “wrong” way and be successful. This is why some of the most successful people on the planet never went to college, while some of the most dedicated students end up in dead-end jobs.
In conscious manifestation, you decide what you want, and then you let the universe work out the details. The universe will guide you to your dream, if you allow it! The universe knows where the things are that you want, and it knows how to get you to them.
In other words, you don’t figure out the path in advance. You follow the path that is revealed to you.
In order to be guided to your dream, you have to become aware of the guidance and you have to be willing to take the guidance, even if it violates your typical routine or rules of behavior.
So, the next time you find yourself invited to an unusual event and you feel interested in attending, GO! The next time you feel inspired to take a different route to work, take it! The next time your work is interrupted with something exciting and engaging, take a break to explore it!
Remember, from your physical perspective, you are unable to see the direct path to your dream. To get to where you want to be, you have to be willing to accept the guidance that is coming your way. This guidance comes in the form of interest, excitement and happiness. Let those feelings be your map.
To follow your path, be flexible about where you go, who you see, when you leave and how you get there. If you feel called to do something unusual, understand the universe is directing you. Take the hint!
