U is for the Unlimited Gift in “Unattainable”!
Updated: November 11, 2013
Dear wonderful you,
Hope this week leaves you with a sigh of relief now that mercury retrograde has left us. One of the gifts of the retrograde has been the opportunity to ponder what is or is not attainable and the beauty of surrendering to that.
Yes, I know the more you look at the words unattainable and unlimited you might wonder what they have in common. Yet put them together and you’ll find they hold the key to your uniqueness and your ability to make that uniqueness a service to the world. The two combined gets you super grounded in manifesting what’s best for you and the highest good for all.
I believe in unlimited potential and possibility in the universe. Yes I do.
I also believe in the importance of trusting in what is unattainable, what is withheld and what says no to you.
My favorite expression is “rejection is God’s protection.” It means when something is unattainable in the moment, it’s for our own good, for our growth and to lead us to something better, a better way to express ourselves with our talents and skills.
It’s hard to hear “no.” I remember when I pursued a music career I was rejected over and over again. I could not accept my dream was completely unattainable. At the same time my career as an intuitive blossomed and grew all by itself without any help from me.
I finally just couldn’t take it anymore and let go of the music and recognized how much I loved working with people. But interestingly enough, once I let go I got the record deal anyway. I was 40 years old when I recorded a CD I’m so proud of called Magdalene’s Garden. The success I wanted was still unattainable though and I eventually had to concede it was not meant to be.
The gift here was I although I was able to prove myself as an artist my true purpose was to help others with my skill as an intuitive. As soon as I surrendered to the truth that a successful career in music was not going to be for me, a series of synchronistic events led me to Hay House. Four books and four oracle decks later, here I am!
It was as if a floodgate of unlimited potential was awakened and I saw first-hand how the universe was conspiring on my behalf.
The point is, when the universe makes your desires unattainable it may mean “no” or it may mean “not yet” but no matter what, it’s a sign to let go, and let go now. Pay attention to what is working in your life and trust that the process of manifestation is not only in your hands nor driven solely by your desire.
You have a purpose that is unique and sometimes the only way you find out what that is, is to hear a lot of no’s when you’re pursuing something else.
So, when you get enough no’s and you say “I get it,” surrender and you too will see all manner of synchronicities align to bring who you’re meant to be forward. You may, like me, get a gift and the thing you thought you wanted most in the world will yet be delivered.
It’s truly a universe of unlimited potential and opportunity. It just has a Mind of its own.
Today consider all the things withheld from you as gifts in strange wrapping paper, bless everything unattainable as it leaves a lot of room for the unlimited potential in what is truly for you.
What is for you, will never go past you.
I know I’m not alone. Have you also heard “no” and instead had the universe conspire on your behalf on a different path? As always, love to hear from you!
Love to you always and forever
May you get what you truly need to be who you’re meant to be.
