The credit card payment didn’t take on the first try, so I’m not meant to do this program.
I typed in the email address wrong once, so I wasn’t supposed to write and ask for this favor.
I misdialed the phone, so I wasn’t supposed to make that call today.
I do believe in the power of providence. I believe that sometimes the guiding hand of Spirit reaches out, and saves us from ourselves. And I am grateful for these interventions.
I also believe that it’s far too easy to let fear stop you as you pursue a path of stepping up. When you’re contemplating creating big and busting loose, what better way to protect yourself than to look for any excuse as a ‘sign’ you aren’t supposed to?
If you believe you shouldn’t sign up for that training program because you mis-typed your credit card number, then look at your fears. What’s really challenging you here?
I’m guessing it’s one of these:
- I’m afraid I won’t succeed.
- I’ll get into this and won’t follow through.
- I’ll look stupid if I can’t do it right.
- If this doesn’t work, there is no hope left.
- This could prove that I’m really a failure.
- It’s a big investment – I should just work on this in a cheaper way.
If you find one of these lurking, then address that first, before you decide if there’s really a spiritual message for you.
You can also look at it another way: if the Universe throws up barriers, maybe it’s testing your resolve. Maybe someone out there knows that the way will be a little tough, but SO worth it, and wants to make sure you’re not going to get halfway down the road and give up. So a little resistance, a few obstacles, and presto – your tenacity gauge gets set at ‘Not giving up!’
And that’s a powerful way to start anything.
