Sometimes life closes doors because it is time to move forward

Sometimes life closes doors because it is time to move forward

 

 

 

I found a quote this weekend that read:

‘Sometimes life closes doors because it is time to move forward. And that’s a good thing because we often won’t move unless circumstances force us.’

And the funny thing is that I really needed to read this.  A door closed for me on Friday, and not just on one aspect, it had a domino effect to a whole bunch of other things that were then not going to happen. And on Friday night I was disappointed, but today I am happy.  I had let this one aspect change my focus and distract me, so the universe said ‘wait a second, let’s get you back on track here Joy!’ and thank goodness it did!

Sometimes we need a serious push in the right direction.

I honestly believe that when you ask the universe for something, it listens.

I also believe that if you ask you have to trust that the universe will bring it to you, but if you keep on asking you give off a sense of desperation … which is not conducive to being open to receive … if you get my drift, you have to trust.

And further to that, I also believe that if you ask, and it is meant to be, but you let something else get in your way or you allow yourself to be distracted, the universe will do what it needs to do to realign you … you know that wakeup call you sometimes get, and you think, wowzer, I needed that!

And lastly I believe that when the universe is trying to teach you a lesson, it will keep presenting the lesson to you until you actually get it. And if you miss the lesson each time it comes along, the lesson the universe presents to you will get bigger, and more noticeable each time in order for you to deal with it.

Shu, that is a lot of belief right there …

But let me help to explain myself with some examples because I have been going through all this throughout this year and I have to keep reminding myself of this … even though I believe it to my core, I need a reminder, often.

 

I honestly believe that when you ask the universe for something, it listens.

My husband, my mum, friends and colleagues have all said to me at different times that I am determined, if I put my mind to something I will get it!

And yes, this is true. Mostly because when I want something I put it out into the universe, I make it very well known that I want it, and because I do this I make everything I do in relation to this, work towards the thing I want.

I was working at an advertising agency many years ago, and I wanted a certain promotion, a big promotion. I was young, but I was ambitious. I made sure I said yes to every opportunity that would get me to seen to be doing the job I wanted to be in. I offered my help when I wasn’t asked, and I just did stuff I knew should be done without being asked.  Within about 18 months, and 2 promotions, I got the promotion I actually wanted, and everyone said ‘it was like you were doing the job already Joy’. This is because I put it out there and asked the universe for it.  I didn’t make it known to anyone else, just the universe and me. And every day I spoke to myself and told myself I would get it, and told myself what to do to get it. And it came … big and glorious and wonderful. And I had that job for 7 years, and I loved it.

 

I also believe that if you ask you have to trust that the universe will bring it to you.

Once you have asked, you have to trust it will come. If you keep asking and asking you will give off a sense of desperation and scarcity, and that is not conducive to being open to receive.

I have been almost begging the universe for something for some time now, and it hasn’t been coming. A large portion of my begging is because I am impatient, but some is also because I want it so badly. And it wasn’t coming. I realised the other day that it is because I did not trust that it will. I have been doubting myself in this area and because of that the universe has held off … once I believe in me, and trusted in me and the universe, it will come. And it came, today!

I believe that if you ask, and it is meant to be, but you let something else get in your way or you allow yourself to be distracted, the universe will do what it needs to do to realign you.

I got that wakeup call that you sometimes need to get on Friday, and boy, did I need it!

I was given a few opportunities a few weeks back (I had mentioned this to you) and over the weeks that have followed I realised just how distracted I have been with them. And on Friday something happened that set me back on track and in place! I have always said ‘if I am meant to have a kid, I will’ and I truly believe this, but the same can be said for almost all I ask for … if I am meant to be it, have it, do it … I will … it will happen. And I have always trusted in that, so why was this any different for me. Who knows, I certainly do not, but what I do know is that I got the wakeup call, a great big flatty to the side of my face, and now I am so gigantically back on track to what is going to be me!

I believe that when the universe is trying to teach you a lesson, it will keep presenting the lesson to you until you actually get it. And if you miss the lesson each time it comes along, the lesson the universe presents to you will get bigger, and more noticeable each time in order for you to deal with it.

I tell this to my Clients all the time. This is your lesson, and until you get it, learn it, feel it, believe it, make the change and the shift you need to … a new lesson will keep presenting itself to you, bigger and more noticeable than ever before.

I finally got my lesson this morning too … and mine has always been around being honest about where I am at, and what I want. And probably about what I need help with … this is my worst! I hate admitting I need help of any kind because that could mean I am not good enough to do it myself.

But today the opportunity presented itself to me, without me doing a thing.

My lesson was right in front of me, and I wa sin the car, so I couldn’t escape. I had this sense come over me that was ‘it’s now or never Joy’ and I did it, I started talking and talking, and telling everything … and the outcome at the end of the drive was amazing!!!! I am so excited with where this is all going now that I cannot believe I held back. Talk Joy, about everything you thinking and feeling.

I have just today finished a new book, that I will share via my book club, The Joy Club, and the book is called ‘The 5 Second Rule’ by Mel Robbins. It is nothing short of life changing, and I encourage you all to go and have a read of it. Click here to join The Joy Club and you will get this book link and loads more links of books and inspiration from me to you, to keep you on track with what you want and the universe will give.

The universe will bring what you need to you when the time is right

Just trust and believe in you

 

If any of this has made sense to you and you think one of my examples might help someone else, then please, please, pretty please share via one of the links below.

Lots of love and gratitude,

Trust in you and the universe will trust you to give you what you asking for.
