The Inner Voice

by Marilyn Gelfand


When we have to wait for things to unfold, it can be so difficult if the situation is of earth-shattering importance to us. If we are waiting for a diagnosis or medical report or witnessing a family crisis, we want to get the answers right away. How can the peace be maintained when it is so difficult to wait?

The first requirement is to have the trust that the situation is unfolding with divine order at hand. We can imagine our loved ones or ourselves in a safe place. When we feel the fear, we can immediately switch it into one of trust that the person is safe in a divine place.

It is important to remember to take deep breaths and give the body some healing. If the person is a concerned outsider, then this individual must remember to watch when crossing the streets, etc. Being concerned about someone else to a great extent, might take us away from our current surroundings. It is important to keep the focus.

The next step is to go day by day. Instead of worrying about all the what-ifs that can be created by the mind and an insecure emotional state, it is important to remember that life is not controlled by my worrying.

When things go awry, often it happens in surprising ways not according to my worries. I have to check if the person is safe in the present moment. If yes, then I would continue to send energy of calmness. If the situation is dangerous, maybe things must change or a situation needs some action today. Often the worrying is over the future, not what is occurring right now. We honestly don't know what will occur, but we can say that this is what is.

If this is an outside situation, remember that cleansing our energy and protecting it is good for ourselves and the persons involved. If we are directing our fearful energy, it will be picked up by the people in the crisis and they will feel worse.

The best is to trust that all will be revealed at the moment it should and actions will be taken appropriately as life unfolds.
