“Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.”
When it seems like everything is falling apart, things are going wrong, things are breaking down, and you can see no way out, it’s easy to believe everything is falling apart and we can feel helpless. But it is at times like these when we’re feeling hopeless and fear that we can’t go on anymore, that we should have faith that everything is falling into place.
Whether the change is welcomed or wanted, change is inevitable; it’s part of life. Everything is always changing and evolving, including us. When our lives turn to chaos, it is very easy to think everything is coming apart for the worse. But, when things are coming apart and undone, they are actually being re-arranged to help synchronize us with our desires, passions, and dreams.
If you feel like everything seems a mess right now and you’re feeling uncertain about what lies ahead, then here are some signs to look out for to let you know you are on the right track and that changes are coming your way.
1. When Little Dislikes Now Have Become Unbearable
Getting annoyed by small trivial things can drive us all crazy. When every small irrelevant thing starts to bug us and irritate us, this is a sure sign that some changes are on the way. We can all handle a certain amount of negativity; we all deal with minor nuisances daily. But when we reach the point that annoyances are everywhere, it is like the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Something snaps within us, and we can’t take it anymore, and we take action.
2. Feeling Lost
“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” – Henry David Thoreau
The best way to find yourself is actually to lose yourself. It may sound like a backward notion, but it’s when we feel genuinely lost we really listen to ourselves. When you are feeling lost, you’re without direction, and with no direction, you have no desires or dreams. It is during this time when there are no desires, wants or needs, that your soul starts to speak. This is the time we ask for guidance from our inner being, and this is the time we can truly hear and know what we want and where we want to be going in life.
At this time when everything may seem like it is out of control, it is a perfect time. You are at a point of craving answers and guidance, and it is at this stage that you are more open to acceptance, and understand unconditionally what your heart is trying to guide you towards. When you accept this, you will find yourself on a new path that leads you on a journey to help get your mind, body, heart, and soul in sync with each other. Try and go with the flow of this.
3. Leave The Incubator
We all go through periods where we seem to have a completely jam-packed schedule. Parties, friends get-togethers, trips, work commitments, kids’ school activities. The engagements seem endless, and we have no idea how we can keep up. Then we go from that to the other extreme and go through periods of isolation, solitude, or maybe depression, or we go through periods of deep introspection.
These cycles vary in length, but we all go through these momentum shifts to help form our perspective on the world. The time spent introspecting gives us a better perspective on our emotions. These times help our psychological and spiritual growth. While on the other hand, our outward interacting social times are when we manifest new experiences, travel, and meet new people. It’s a time for broadening our horizons. When you break free from the incubator period, it feels like a new lease of life, a rebirth. When you take the time to recharge your batteries and reevaluate the things and people in your life, it helps set you on another goal to a better-improved life.
4. Feeling Scared, Excited And Anxious At The Same Time
When the incubator stage you have been going through starts coming to an end, and you have a new vision for your life, it can feel scary and exciting at the same time. When you are feeling scared but excited at the same time, this is a sure sign you should go for it. When you can feel something big is about to happen, and you can feel momentum building, this is the time to take that leap of faith and go for it. You may have no idea what to expect, but you also know that you are on the right path. Feeling anxious is normal as you can’t yet see the light at the end of the tunnel.
You’ve set your intentions, and now it’s time to trust your inner guidance and go with the flow. It can feel like you face closed doors at every turn, but don’t take this as a failed goal or that things are not working out. These are just redirections to an easier path. Stay open, trust the process and go with the flow. These are exciting times, be mindful and remain present in the now. Everything is aligning.
When you start paying heed to all the little signs from the Universe, you will begin to notice more and more. Trust these; these are little clues from the Universe letting you know you’re on the right path and in alignment.
