with Spiritual Timing
by Linda Mackenzie, C.H.T., Ph.D.(c)
Do you have a goal that is not being actualized? Do you feel Blocked
or Frustrated? Do you feel in your heart that you are doing things right,
yet there still doesn't seem to be any movement towards getting your goal.
Spiritual Timing may be the answer. To determine if Spiritual Timing may
be the cause of your delay take this 2-part test.
Instructions: Think about each question and
how it relates to your goal. Be honest with yourself when you answer each
question and if you are not sure of what answer to select check off YES.
THE PATH OF PERSONAL GROWTH
Are you trying to control the situation?
Do you worry about what people will
Could you be confusing happiness with
fulfillment of desire?
Are you insisting that your way is
the only right way?
Could you be rationalizing your situation
to maintain your own independence?
Are you living in the past or future
and not in the moment?
Are you trying to stop change?
Are you setting up too rigid goals
or ways to manifest your goal?
Are you setting up expectations for
Are you trying too much or too hard
to fulfill your desires?
Are you using the ego to set up significance,
projections, feelings or attitudes towards
the accomplishment of your goal?
Are you set in your mind on how your goal
If you answered YES, to some or all of these questions, it may
be your own personal growth that is stopping you from actualizing your
goal. To eliminate these obstacles you must work on eliminating any negative
thought patterns that may be getting in your way. Sometimes you may not
even be consciously aware of your negative thought patterns, but they
still could be affecting your goals and your life. Try taking our Find
Your Hidden Negativity Test to find out where your negative thought
patterns are and try to overcome them to help you reach your goals.
If you answered NO to ALL these questions go to Part 2
THE CREATIVE VOID
If you answered NO to all the questions in Part One of this test, the
next step is to find out if you are in a place that I call the "Creative
A "Creative Void" is a time in your life where you are shifting,
adapting and getting ready for a major change. It is a spiritual growth
time where, although similar to spiritual timing, there is little or no
movement. You may or may not know what your next step towards your goal
is or you might not even know the goal! You feel and know a shift is about
to occur and things around you don't feel exactly right - but nothing
seems to be happening. To determine if you are in the Creative Void time
here are some of the questions to ask yourself.
Are you holding on to ideas, methods or things that
inhibit your spiritual growth?
Do you need to get rid of attachment to people, places
Do you need to find the missing balance in your life
by including time for:
Self? Family? Significant Others? Community? Career?
Are you letting go and forgiving negative emotional
Do you have to eliminate the sources of fear in your
Do you need to make and accept changes in your mind,
body or spirit?
Are you allowing the process of change to flow?
Do you have a need to find your purpose or service
If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, you must
honor this time of spiritual growth. The Creative Void may be a time for
information gathering, reflection, sitting still or eliminating things
that are no longer necessary in your life. It is the time of spiritual
growth and advancement towards balance in your life. Consider these things
as opportunities for your spiritual growth and work on them one-by-one.
Always remember that the Creative Void is a time to resolve issues and
allow balance to come into your life. It is the time to throw away the
old and invite in the new. As issues and balance are resolved in your
life, action will manifest and movement towards your goal will follow.
If you answered NO to all these questions, it may be that Spiritual
Timing is at work.
Spiritual Timing is what I call God's Timing. It is a time when everything
is in synchronicity. The right time, the right place and the right action
all manifest when it is exactly right for everyone and every thing on
the planet and in the universe.
Everything is comprised of energy and we are all one and energetically
connected. Therefore, every thought or action affects not only us, but
everyone on the planet and in the universe as well. Negative thoughts
produce negative energy just as positive thought produces positive energy.
All energy is governed by Universal Laws which are based
in Universal Truths (e.g., the power of love). These Universal Truths
are not perceptions and have their own energy. Our perception, which is
another energy, is just that -Our Perception. Every thing and everyone's
perception is different from each other and is dependent upon their own
journey down their unique life's path.
When you think about the magnitude of all this perceptive
energy it can be overwhelming. Think of the energy of a flower growing,
an ant busily living its life, the earth's energy or the individualized
perceptive energy of the millions of people on earth. Each and every thing
with its own energy!
Spiritual Timing orchestrates this energy for the good of all. Not just
for the individual but for everything, everywhere. You may be coming from
the right place, doing everything right, having the right thoughts and
providing the right energy, but perhaps somewhere, some thing is not ready
for what you are to manifest. Synchronicity with the whole is missing,
so that's where Spiritual Timing comes into play.
When Spiritual Timing is the cause of lack of movement towards your goal,
patience and acceptance can help you cope with the delay. There are NO
mistakes and there is a reason why everything happens or does not happen.
Remember that we are comprised of body, mind and spirit and some or all
of these areas can be addressed to help you stay peaceful and balanced
until the Spiritual Timing IS right. However you choose to cope with Spiritual
Timing is exactly right for you. Here are some hints that I use when I
get into Spiritual Timing.
REDUCE YOUR PHYSICAL STRESS by taking care of your body...
Eat a proper diet
Take the correct dietary supplements
Get enough rest and sleep
REDUCE YOUR MENTAL STRESS by quieting your mind...
Accept that things are exactly right
and stay positive
Remind yourself that there are no
Accept that things will manifest when
and how they are supposed to
Let Go and "Just Be" without
Meditate and Pray
REDUCE YOUR EMOTIONAL STRESS by releasing attachment...
Maintain an attitude of love, joy
Know you will always be provided for
and everything's all right
Gain comfort knowing that things are
happening for the good of all
REDUCE YOUR SPIRITUAL STRESS by cleansing yourself of negativity...
Feel and connect to the Oneness and
Trust your inner guidance always.
Know that everything is exactly right
and the solution is already being taken care of
Following these hints doesn't mean that Spiritual Timing will work any
faster. After all, time is
man-made and not a prerequisite to the master plan. What WILL happen is
that you will feel part of the whole, gain understanding, attain peace
in this waiting time and be able to assist your goal with even more positive
