Be less specific: The universe knows what’s best for you!

A Note From Dr. Beverly Nelson, Director

Dr. Beverly Nelson (Photo: Michael Amici)We live life wishing for things to happen. Why shouldn’t we? After all, it’s perfectly legitimate to wish for certain events to take place; in the exact way we picture them in our minds. We want to be happy and most of us are taught from very early on that getting what we want is the only way in which we can accomplish happiness.

You know where I’m going, right?

I’m thinking about that line John Lennon wrote: Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans . We love planning and we believe so much in our plans, schedules and agendas that we think that, if the universe comes up with something else, there is no way that can make us happier than what we had already envisioned. We ignore the fact that the unexpected, the unforeseen, can be a beautiful surprise. How many opportunities and joyful moments we are missing out on if we think this way!

When you decide what you truly want and send it out for the Universe to take care of it; remember not to be so specific. Rather than focusing on certain events to take place or evolve in the exact way you want them to; think about the final result: how do you want to feel about that particular situation? Happy? Exhilarated? Grateful? Wish for the most positive outcome – the one that will give you and those around you the most joy and pleasure.

And, remember to catch the signs the Universe sends your way: keep your antennas up and then set out to make the best of all the positive things that are bound to come your way.

It’s worked for me. Has it also worked for you? I’m eager to know!
