As some of you know my husband Butch passed away in 2008. I miss his physical presence and the love we shared on this earthly plane.
I was talking to a psychic friend in early 2010, who told me I was about to meet the love of my life, my soulmate and within the year I would be married.
This sent me into a state of panic. I still love Butch, who, I know with every cell
of my being, was my true soul mate. I wasn't in the market for a new man and the
fear that the Universe was going to push me into something I wasn't ready for
created all sorts of emotional turmoil for me. Even though I know this isn't how the Universe works, fear overrode any intelligent thought.
As soon as the words were uttered, I began to 'close down'. I stopped being friendly with any males, just in case I encouraged a situation to develop. I stopped going out socially and retreated back into my cave. ( I had only just started to explore my extremely 'different' life at that stage)
This morning I was thinking about what was said, my reaction and how my life unfolded at that time.
It never happened, because I didn't allow it to.
Although we are given the heads up about opportunities and challenges in a reading, the Universe doesn't force us to comply. We always have freedom of choice and really speaking we do need to meet the Universe at least partway for a reading to become a reality.
We can't expect a new job to turn up if we aren't even considering a change of employment. We can't meet the love of our life if we never go out of the house. We won't win money if we never buy a lotto ticket. We'll never see the world if we aren't interested in finding out what's out there.
Alternatively, if you are told in a reading that something bad is about to happen, you also have freedom of choice there too. If you know about it, you can take the steps to change it.
Nothing is cast in stone. Life is ever-changing, as are we. It makes sense that the energy around us will either attract or repel.
The Universe will always extend a helping hand, but it is through personal choice and our actions that we decide whether we take it.
with love, respect and integrity
