I had a confusing situation happen with a potential colleague that I’d like to clear about – I wanted to approach her as I am interested in being her ‘go-to’ source for graphic design work. She’s known to work with entrepreneurs and I thought that might be a good fit. We scheduled a phone call and I blew it! I totally forgot – it’s the first time I’ve ever done that! So we rescheduled – and I did it AGAIN! Then when I called her to apologize, she was understandably distant. Eventually, we ran into each other at a networking gig and smoothed it all out, but I don’t think we’ll be working together. Is there something I should know here?
The Bigger Message Answer
Sometimes the thing we think we want isn’t the thing we need. In this case, your goal was to cultivate a professional referral relationship; however, divine protection interceded on your behalf.
There is some unknown, larger reason that this relationship was not going to serve you. Rather than letting this become a sore spot, a reason to beat yourself up or project that she’s got something to do with this outcome, consider that this relationship would not have progressed smoothly. You were the beneficiary of divine protection running interference to block it before it started.
We humans tend to personalize such scenarios when the reality is that if it were meant to work, it would be easy. Follow the flow to know that something – anything – is the next best step for you, whether that’s work, relationship or something else.
For example, what would happen if you pushed this situation? If, after two strikes, you were to schedule for a third time (thinking ‘the third time is the charm’), you’re telling the Universe that you really, really want this experience. This is despite circumstantial evidence that it’s not an easy process. In essence, you’re challenging something far bigger than you by saying ‘yes – I really want that’. And so, you will get it – challenges, bumps in the road and misery included.
When things don’t come easy, consider that you are being protected from something you can’t yet see. If it’s meant for you, it will come to you in another form or different time. The key is to not personalize what’s happening as a negative.
And that’s the Bigger Message about divine protection interceding on your behalf.
