What is one thing that has been on your to-do list for a while and you aren’t ready to let it go, but you haven’t done anything with it either?
It just kind of sits there, taunting you.
What is holding you back from doing it? Is it fear or simply divine timing hasn’t aligned yet and how do you tell the difference?
A little story for you….
I was writing a blog post last Nov and got the nudge from my angels to submit a previously written post to Huffington Post (an online publication ran by Arianna Huffington.)
Arianna – (hehe, yes I just put us on a first name basis) invited me to be a blogger and I was so super excited!
But….I literally never submitted the article for publishing and I stopped writing period.
Since then, I would try to push myself to do it, but I just couldn’t.
At first, I thought it was fear holding me back (and I think initially it was), but now I see it was pure divine timing. What I went through on a very deep personal level these last few months, the ‘stuff’ I released, the power I had to claim…all before I was really ready to put this out there and be seen on a bigger level.
Funny thing is, once I submitted it, the article was published within 2 days!

So How do you tell if it is Fear or Divine Timing:
I have discovered through this experience that Fear for me feels like it is HARD, like I have no desire to push through that giant brick wall in my way.
Divine Timing feels more like waiting for a birthday. You know it is coming and you have no doubt it will happen, you just don’t feel the nudge to ‘make’ it happen.
The same feeling I had the day I emailed Arianna (like it would be cool to do it that day…is the same feeling I had to submit it to get published.)
I had no attachment, no overwhelm, no pressure…just, hey, I think I’m gonna do this today ~ just like saying hey, I think I’m going to the grocery store today.
If there is pressure or struggle or frustration, then your energy is not aligned with it yet. Get aligned first and then do it – life will be easier 😉
