Life is All About Timing
Welcome back to my Spiritual Awareness series. In this episode I’m talking about Timing and how significant it is to everything we do in life.
When life feels like it is at a standstill, the universe is giving us a pause. Like anything else we do in life like expending physical endurance, we need to take a minute to recover. The universe takes pauses too.
The universe will take us to where we need to be when the timing is most appropriate and in the right moment of our life. I’m a firm believer in divine timing.
The right timing is crucial for events to run smoothly. If you’re late for work, you may be in trouble. If you give up on something too early, you may miss a good opportunity. If you keep doing the same thing over in the same way with the same unwanted results, you are wasting your time. If you get to the concert early, you’ll get a good seat; if you’re late, you may be in the back row. I think you catch my drift here.
Just as the examples above state the importance and relevance to timing, divine timing in life is just how the universe works with time and how those timings affect different aspects of our lives. How many times have we heard stories about people missing their planes, getting stranded and meeting someone then who’d they never have got to meet had they caught their flight? The universe decides when it’s time for us to meet someone who is supposed to be in our lives. It makes the circumstances around our lives at a certain moment coincide with where we need to be at that right particular moment to meet someone who may eventually become our life partner, and it may potentially be saving our life in divine timing because it’s not our time yet to leave this earth. An example of this:
My husband, who loved to tell me stories, often repeated pertinent stories that held great significance in his life. He’d told me about a trip he’d taken with a few guys for a hockey tournament they were playing in, about thirty years ago. In those days, my husband was a naughty playboy who was always in for a few drinks. The three men were sitting in the bar waiting for their flight when their names were called and told the flight was overbooked and asked if one of them could wait for the next flight. My husband put up his hand and offered to hang out at the bar and wait for another hour for the next flight. The flight he missed crashed. No survivors. I can only imagine digesting that moment when your plan was changed and you find out if you hadn’t done that, your life was over. Divine timing was responsible for that one. No different than the people who were sick or late for work, or day off from work when their work was in the towers warred down in New York on 9/11.
Timing is akin with reasons and seasons, we meet people for reasons and sometimes only for seasons, and if we don’t allow the time to come to make what needs to happen, we’ll get something else than what was meant for us.
Famous sayings with my thoughts attached:
There’s a time and a place for everything. Not everything is for now. If you make it so, it’s not going to be as beneficial as if the universe’s plans.
Time to call it a day. The end of the day, the mission, project, visit, etc., has ended.
Time is a healer. Is it? Time heals all wounds. Does it? The idea is that in time a physical wound will heal, an emotional wound will heal, but more like, soften. As the immediate sting dulls itself down, it is part of the healing.
Time to move on. We’ve over-extended our welcome. The project or relationship is finished.
Time is up. You must make that decision. You must stop what you’re doing now. The party is over.
Bad timing. When you meet someone in your life who could possibly be ‘the one’, but circumstances can’t allow it to happen.
Divine timing. Meant to be at that precise moment the universe makes something important, fun or good, happen.
A prime example of the right timing meant for me in my own life – I was stuck in a bad relationship for seven years before I met my husband. The circles I traveled in were the exact same circles my husband traveled in during that time frame, yet we never crossed paths. . .please continue reading at Sally’s blog
