Although we’re not always akin to understanding how the universe works, I believe the universe sends out pointers to help us work through certain situations.
I remember an incident many years ago through work, where it didn’t matter what I did, I never seemed to be able to please my boss who would fly off the handle at every opportunity. I had to be one step ahead of him all the time. Then out of the blue he told me to go. I had been working there for eighteen months. I had received no verbal or written warnings. I had until the end of the day to clear my desk.
I remember being angry and annoyed that somehow he had the upper hand over me; but what I didn’t see back then was that the sign from the universe was telling me that I was never meant to be there long term. I was struggling to make something work that would never work. I also later learned that two to three months after I left, another two members of staff that I had worked with, left to set up their own practice citing unreasonable behaviour.
I believe every situation or problem we deal with has a message, a sign from the universe that points us either in the same direction so that we finish what we started, or it points us in a different direction altogether. We need to be able to read the signs of what the universe is telling us.
We must open our minds to its teachings. The messages are there and they’re clear. We must learn to recognise, extract and use the universe’s guidance to help us understand, how to steer our lives.
