Feeling Impatient for Change?

by Danielle MacKinnon

I know it’s crazy but we are still feeling this wonky, chaotic energy and many of us are going to continue feeling it for some time more. A normal reaction to this out of control energy is to strive to take more control over it. Many of my clients are coming into their private sessions, working their butts off to make their dreams come true. They are either working longer hours at their jobs, taking nine million classes to try and improve themselves, going extreme with their time management, and committing themselves to anything and everything that could possibly move them out of this wonky energy towards whatever goal they are striving for.

The thing about this energy is that it’s not about controlling your life or your environment anymore. It’s not about forcing the future to come upon you or making your life look the way you want it to look. Instead, it’s about trust and the merging of your human wants and desires with the faith that you are being taken care of and guided toward experiences that help you feel fulfilled, happy, aligned, and excited. This can be very hard to do for those of you who are go-getters (I know – I am one myself!). You’re used to taking control, figuring out the answer and going for it.

Well, taking control of everything is just not going to work in this energy, this time. Sorry!

Instead, we’re all being asked to spend more time allowing the universe to show us what really works – allowing ourselves to slow down just a bit so that we can catch and experience all the scenery as it goes by – allowing ourselves NOT to have to be in charge all of the time. I know it’s hard to do (I certainly struggle with it myself at times), but you’ll find that you enjoy yourself much more NOW if you stop pushing so hard for everything to happen on your time line, in the way that you want, with the outcome you’ve decided is best.

The universe/God/Source/Spirit is working for your benefit. Trust! Just Trust!

Love & Light,

    I just love finding things that give me clarity in the moment. So, yeah, I’ve been cocooning for a year now, and the past couple of weeks, suddenly feel I’m supposed to be doing something. The wonky chaotic energy is propelling me to find self help projects, and I find myself signing up for everything on the internet, But don’t make half of the commitments (aha, a. Hidden contract with myself). I’ll have to meditate on this one and see if I can uproot the reason I feel tied to my bed being sick and the pushing I feel to “do something”. Might need a reading Danielle !

    Right on, as usual, Danielle! This is exactly what I’ve been feeling. It’s challenging at time to maintain the trust and allow this slower pace … especially as work dumps on more and some co-workers disapprove. BUT I definitely feel this is exactly what is needed right now and have been helping to coach a few of my friends on this as well. Thanks for the affirmation.

    It’s been nearly a year of ‘letting go’ for me, since i left a very toxic and stressful job. i was a workaholic for 15 years. and then i just let go and decided to let God and the universe help me out..’progress’ is extremely slow and painful, and you are 100% right about the energy! thank you for confirming what i knew on some small and unformed level of awareness.

    Thanks Danielle. I was being driven feeling that I just had to find answers a purpose and make it all work. This is an interesting quirk to feel urged to respond but to have to wait for answers. I trust that some will come.

    Thanks Danielle – I so needed to hear that at this time of major transitions in my life. I keep telling myself to trust in the “bigger picture” and not try and control the details. I know I need to do my work but I also need listen to the source and allow it to unfold as it should. Thanks again!

    Thank You so much for this, right at a time when I needed to hear it and needed to hear it now. I have been having a hard time with one of the tenants in our house and was thinking it was just me being to controlling. Funny God or the spirits always seem to come through just at the right time. God Bless you for your wonderful advise Danielle!!!

    Thank you Danielle, Such a relief. I’ve been trying to put together a business plan and I’ve been feeling so guilty lately because I just can’t seem to make much progress at this time. No wonder. How long will the energy be like this?
