It’s easy to say “everything happens for a reason”, “when one door closes, another opens” or “the universe is waiting for the right timing”....after the fact. But how do you believe this during a stressful event?
I still have not figured it out fully, however, after a stressful series of events yesterday, looking back and in the moment, I was able to see where I was guided.
I had to take my car in because it was making “funny noises”. As my regular place could not take me, I had gone to another place. I received a phone call to say that my car had a problem that would cost $600 to fix. For most people, this unexpected cost would elicit a stressful reaction, as it did in me.
Just before I was going to tell them to go ahead and fix the problem, a voice inside my head said, call the dealership. So, I asked the garage to wait and that I would get back to them. I called my dealership and the part turned out to still be under warrenty so I was spared!
When I went back to pick up my car to drop off at my dealership, I had asked someone to meet me so I could get a ride. When I arrived to pick up my car, it was not put back together yet and I had to wait. I was trying to get a hold of my ride who was already on the way and the phone rang and rang...she was driving of course and couldn’t pick up. I decided to send a thought (“telepathic”) message to come back to get me. I also prayed that she would hear the phone ringing many times and know something was wrong. And she did!
At the same time, I had called my husband to tell him what was going on with the car and that I would not have my car for 2 days. It just so happened, he was in the area because he had dropped off his boss at the airport when his boss’s taxi did not arrive! My husband was able to meet me at the dealership.
Everything had worked out the way it was supposed to. It was stressful at the time and I was able to follow my hunches. Looking back, I could see that I was guided throughout the process. The right people were in the right place at the exact moment I needed them to be.
My car is now fixed and I had great learning opportunity in trust.
