One of the hardest part of this human journey is when you think you have done everything in your power to make something happen and… instead of getting better things start to fall apart.
This is a question I get from people all the time. I hear it from client, I hear it from friends… I even hear it from my husband.
“Patty, explain why this is happening !”
Let me stop for a moment and just say … I feel incredibly grateful that people trust me to channel that answer for them. I feel lucky as hell that the Divine chose me as one of the warriors of this particular brand of love.
Because I have gotten to a place where I no longer doubt the darkness. My faith in the light is strong enough for me and every heart that holds this question. You can lean on my faith.
But what I want you to also know is I got that faith by having it “all fall apart” many, many times. Each time it felt like the rug was ripped out of me until one day it didn’t.
It was somewhere between the day my mom crossed and the day my dad crossed. Those two events seem to book end a period in my life where I felt tested over and over again.
I know what it feels like curled up in the fetal position wondering how I was going to get through – whether it was the day I realized my mom was definitely going to die, the day I looked at our bank balance and wasn’t sure I could pay all the bills that week, or the many times I concluded I failed one of my kids.
In fact, each of those events are what gives me the power to hold someone’s hand, look them in the eye and tell them they will get through this, it will get better and they must receive what is happening, including all the emotions that come with it, if they are going to get to higher ground.
My success has come from no longer seeing “it all falling apart” as a bad thing. In my experience “it all falling apart” is the Universe’s way of showing you something greater is in store for you.
Right now you may be having an “its all falling apart” moment. I’m not going to suggest you leap to where I am – believing it is for your highest good. But what I can offer you is my faith. Lean on it for a little while. Trust that I believe for you something greater is making its way to you.
Let go of your gripping and resisting. Open your arms wide to all of it. When you allow what is being taken away to go, You are in the exact position the Universe needs you to be to allow goodness in – with your arms wide open to the world.
