Replace ‘Why is this happening to me?’ with ‘What is this trying to tell me?’
No days are alike, I have mentioned this in one of my previous column and had also stated that what we experience yesterday is much different to what we experience today and what we will experience tomorrow.
Why does this happen to me? A question we must have asked umpteen number of times when we find ourselves in an unforeseen situation during theses uncertainties of every passing day. What can be the reason that all of a sudden all good things happen to you? Or why is this month the health issues have cropped up involving practically every member of your immediate family? It is often said that every situation you find yourself in can either make you or break you depending on how you handle it.
I intend to add one more word to it, besides make you or break you it can teach you. Yes! You learn a lot through experiences in life. But often we tend to ignore this learning experience by getting into forceful act of warding off the situation. Even if it’s only a temporary phase only to resurface again. Take a five-second pause. Try not to think of anything you have read so far. Absolutely nothing. Now begin with a new question. What is this trying to tell me? This here refers to the events happening with you. Something that you have been experiencing of late at regular intervals. Is it trying to convey something? What if these re-occurrences are trying to alert you about the things in the future?
Many must have experiences in their life a kind of pre-warning of it actually happened. For example, while getting down the staircase you missed a step and was about to fall and you didn’t. On the same day in the evening, you skidded off from your bike and had a nasty fall. At times we complain of the entire day gone waste due to one bad incident at the start of the day. Similarly, if someone falls sick and is hospitalised after several tests done, it acts like an indication or a learning experience to remain alert for any such signs and symptoms that might lead to similar medical situation in the near future.
Incidents that happen to you knowingly or unknowingly are the signs of the days ahead to come. They are the hidden messages sent across to you to be alert, to be prepared and most importantly to be a medium of conveying something well in advance.
From now onwards every time something unusual happens in your life, don’t panic. Take few minutes out from the existing situation, however good or bad it may be. And think upon what this situation is trying to convey. Who knows you may have something wonderful waiting at the other end.
