Trust is a powerful word. It takes such a leap of faith to fully trust in something when you are feeling a little unsure. Learning to trust & let go of my control has been a great challenge for me. Especially when you go through life being a trusting person to then have that trust explode in your face leaving you hurt.
Since I’ve been learning to work with the invisible universal powers that be, trust had to come into play. Especially when you’re dealing with something that is not tangible. Our poor restricted, conditioned human minds struggle so hard to believe in something that hasn’t been ‘proven’ or we can’t see ‘see with our human senses.’ Oh we can use our human-ness to connect with the invisible we just need to get out of our heads and trust.
Last week was huge for me in trust land. I had no control over a situation & had to place my trust in the hands of the universe. Are you sitting comfortably? Now I shall begin my story…
I’d been working super hard on a personal design project with a very tight deadline. I thrive on a bit of excitement & pressure it was great to have something to get my teeth stuck into. I gave up a whole Saturday, rearranging and cancelling commitments in order to give me lots of time to get my project underway. It went very well, I was pleased with the out come of the full days work. The project continued through out the week to its final completion. Friday I had everything in order and printed out on lovely glossy stock ready to take home in a folder specially purchased for its transportation.
It was a very quiet day and most of my colleagues had left early. There was no point me staying as there was no one to actually give me any work so I headed off two hours early. What luxury for a Friday. Special folder in hand as well as two other bags I looked like quite the packhorse getting myself to the station.
I deeply desired to get a seat at the end of the carriage so I could tuck my folder down the side without it getting bent. The seat as desired materialised for me as I wished. My folder was safely and straightly stored down the seat. You can probably guess already what happened next. Yes I got off the train and forgot my folder!
Exiting the train I bumped into a friend who actually knew I’d been working on my project & enquired how it went. Realisation hit me so hard I felt physically sick. All my work had been completed & was now heading unattended on the train north. My poor friend was abandoned in the car park as I quickly thought of a plan. A man who must have over heard my flapping pulled over in his car to tell me the phone number I needed. Nice man, thanks for the advice, I now had plan B.
The station has an attendant’s office but I had no idea if it was manned. Hot footing it over there, again willing so deeply someone would be there to advise me what to do. The station attendant was there and didn’t seem fazed at all a customer had a lost property enquiry. He got straight on the phone & made arrangements for a transit officer at the end of the line to go check the carriage for my folder.
A nerve wracking ten minutes came next. I was putting out so much energy and visualising myself with my folder again. ‘Nothing is truly lost in the eyes of the universe’ I kept repeating to myself. I’d only given this advice out to someone else the other week and his ‘lost item’ was rediscovered. I knew I had to trust deeply that the outcome would be the right one. All that work, all that paper and effort. It wouldn’t have been a huge problem to reprint everything but I didn’t want to redo it all again. I stayed calm, breathed deeply and didn’t waste precious energy on thinking the worst. I only thought about my desired outcome positively.
Trusting paid off. The phone call came the folder had made it to the end of the line. Another passenger was in the process of bringing it off the train when the transit officer arrived to collect it. It was waiting for me in the office at the station. I could not thank the attendant enough. I sent so many thanks; gratitude and love out in return as I drove up to collect my folder.
I didn’t make it home much earlier that day I trust that is how it was meant to be. There was definitely a lesson in this for me mainly to stay present & trust in what is meant to be. If the folder had gone missing en route I had to trust it was for the right reason.
It is truly magical when you surrender control and put trust in the universe the out come will be the right one. When you work with the universe things happen so simply. It’s our human-ness I feel that complicates matters. We over think & over look what is right under our noses. From following my own Soul’s guidance I am noticing even more the answers are so simple when you go with flow.
