I just came from an out of town workshop I conducted the other day in a Hotel in Caliraya, Quezon, here in the Philippines. On our way home a thought came to my mind which I pondered as I lay on the car seat slightly tilted. The thought was “In God’s Perfect Timing” or similar to “In His Time”. I asked myself how come most people would resort to that thought (reframing) when they didn’t get what they wanted or when their prayer was not answered on the day they expected it. Like my parents or siblings would always remark “In His Time it will happen, it is not yet time”. I am sure you are familiar with the phrase. I was watching a documentary program on TV the other day where a mother was being interviewed. Her son did not pass the exam and she said in filipino language while trying to console her son… “ayos lang yan anak, di pa kalooban ng Diyos na pumasa ka (Don’t feel bad my son, you will pass when you take the exam again in God’s perfect timing). Does it mean that when you did not pass the board exam or the bar exam or any licensure examination it is because God did not want you to pass yet? I asked myself. I am sure there will be different interpretations about this. Please bear with me, I just wanted to share what I just realized.
One of the few reasons why our prayers will not be answered at the expected time is because of our internal resistance or attachment to the outcome of what we are praying for. In the same manner, the reason why some deals will not materialize on time or a project will not push through is because of the internal resistance or attachment to outcome. It can greatly influence our perspective in a negative way. Ergo, it will affect our results.
Internal resistance is lack of faith or trust. Doubt. It is like keeping your long list of “What If’s” in your mind. It is more likely that you will not receive what you asked for on time if you don’t let go of your internal resistance. Let go of the “what if” like “What if my prayer was not heard yet, what if it doesn’t come on time, what if I fail, what if a problem crop up” and so on and you will receive it. However, the guarantee will not come from the Universe or from me, it will come from you. Stat working on it now. And improve on it. For some, it may take time. It doesn’t always happen overnight. You have to get the hang of it before you experience the positive result. In my future article I will post an NLP technique on how you can program your brain to interpret the phrase “In God’s Perfect Timing” every time you say it or hear it as a reminder from your conscious to command your unconscious to release all resistance or doubts at once. It will shift your vibration and set your mind and action on the right track.
God’s perfect timing is the present moment. The “Now”. The Universe doesn’t understand the term “yesterday”, “today” or “tomorrow”, “in the future” or “later”. It only understands the present as there is no time and space in the Universe. Therefore, God’s perfect timing is only “Now”, the present. So when you ask the Universe for something or when you pray to God, make sure you release your resistance right away. Accept the fact that it may not happen at the time you expect it and it will come. Why? Because accepting the fact that it may not happen at the time you expect it does not mean it will not come on time. It means you are relinquishing your control of the outcome to the Universe. Let God work for you. Always say- In God’s perfect timing or in His time. And when or before you utter the phrase, make sure you believe the fact that the perfect time is now. Expect my post on how your unconscious can facilitate the letting go or resistance release quickly…in God’s perfect timing.
