In the universe I trust…

Do you have that one thing, whether it’s an object, a quote, religion, person, etc, that grounds you, helps you sleep at night? Mine, is trusting the universe.

Easier said then done of course, but sometimes, from life experience, I have learned that the pieces of the puzzle ALWAYS work themselves out. When my mind starts to race about an outcome out of my control, I calm myself down by reminding myself that this too, shall pass.  It doesn’t help your body/mind, or the situation, if you stress about outcomes in or out of your control.  You as a human, are stronger then you even know.  You will always get from A to B using your instincts and life experiences.  You will always find your way.   With every challenge we grow, with every struggle we learn, we make imprints on our soul.

I watched most of my friends get married before me, have children before me, and obtain careers before me. I wondered if I would ever find a husband, get my career into gear, have a family of my own. As a human, I too had times of doubt.  Mostly, I trusted the universe. I pictured my dreams coming true so much, that it became a reality. I knew deep down inside my heart, that my love path would fall into place when I was ready.   I had faith. I waited for “the one”, I didn’t settle, and sure enough I found my big love eventually, worth every second of the wait.

Some may think I waited a long time. I think I waited for the right time….

It happened with my dream job(s) as well. It took me until I was 26 years old to fully land a full time position on the radio at WDHA. I worked from the ground up, took many part-time jobs to be able to eat and pay the rent, but eventually everything worked itself out. It was timing, it was fate, it was a little bit of both, but I never gave up hope, and my trust in the universe.

That’s my mentor and I in the photo above, a career favorite of mine….

I’m not saying that everything my heart desires I trust the universe to hand to me when I’m ready. I’m saying that the meaningful goals, the ones that you know you need and want to exist on this earth, big or small, come at the right time. We may even learn a lot while walking on our journeys.  It’s all a part of it, I do believe…..

I never gave in to the pressures of society in life or love. I didn’t get married until my mid 30’s, I didn’t get hired full time on the radio until well after I graduated college, and I didn’t start teaching yoga until one year ago! I did however, always feel that I was destined for more, and wouldn’t settle for less. I had faith that the steps I took, the heart aches I had felt, the bad jobs I endured, were lessons for me to better roads ahead.

It doesn’t matter what age you are, or what society has decided is the “right” time. What truly matters is what’s inside your heart, and what your own clock is. I suggest setting it to the beat of your heart. Don’t let too much time pass you by without taking the necessary steps to achieve your desires, but also trust that with the right persistence, passion, and patience as I talked about here http://www.lindsaykleinrocks.com/inhale-in-2015/ , you will find your answers.

In 2015’s fast paced society, with the constant need for instant gratification, what if we all just stopped for a few minutes of the day, gave our brains a rest, and just breathed. Have gratitude instead of instant gratification, have less stress instead of more deadlines? Sounds dreamy right? Just remember that no matter what you are going through, and what obstacles lay ahead, shift your conscious mind to something that comforts you.  Ground yourself before panic shows it’s nasty face. Know that you will get to the light at the end of the tunnel, you always do…..

    Aww, I love that you did things on your own time frame and pace. And by the way, you are so right, when it does happen, it just happens and the best laid plans definitely have nothing to do with it. I speak from experience and never quite thought I would be doing what I am doing and yet I love it and works for me. Took me quite awhile myself to get here though, but still glad I did 🙂

      And you’re amazing! Im so glad you did!!!! People that try to plan their lifeline too much end up just with stress…….I love my timeline in good times and bad! xo

    Such a great message!!! It is so hard sometimes when you are in the waiting phase but, like you said, so worth waiting for the right time, the right place and definitely for the right person!!!

    • January 20, 2015 at 8:42 pm

      So hard!!!! But, things work themselves out for better or worse, we always find the outcome;)

    I love this post. This is something I really needed to be reminded of!! I’m currently in a job that I don’t love, and I just turned 32 and I’m single. I have always believed things will workout the way they should, but I have kinda lost hope with the way things have been lately. <3

    • January 20, 2015 at 9:42 pm

      Thank you Amanda! I got married at 36 and didn’t meet my husband until 33? 34? We were engaged 9 months of dating because we had both seen it all! Keep believing and make some stepping stones for a future BETTER job…As for the love, NEVER give up! I know it’s hard to date in your 30s, I was there, and always imagined I’d find true love. The best part about finding it at a later age is you both are soooo mature and its just easy! No BS from the 20s:) Keep me posted! I’m rooting for you in life and love xo

    Perfect measage that I needed tonight. It is so amazing how mothers and grandmothers teach their daughters and daughters teach mothers and grandmothers. And so on! Amen and Awomen!

      Awww I’m pretty sure you’re the reason for all of my “trust” in the universe! love you mama klein! my kindred spirit!

    Love this Lindsay. Having faith and believing in the Universe is hard, hard to wrap our minds around because we can’t see it. But it’s worth waiting and believing. And I love your flow!

      Thank you Christine! I hope to one day be able to take one of your classes!

    I love this post and am so glad that you have the universe to trust in. It’s hard to let go and trust in something, but you have gotten so much out of it! You truly do float into those positions, as well. Completely amazing!

    • January 21, 2015 at 6:12 pm

      Thank you sugar, yes easier said then done but surrendering is sometimes the best alternative ! xo

    A few things stood out to me in this post:
    – Use of the word “meaningful.” Yes, when you’re living from your true self, you’re living from a meaningful place. Swoon!
    – Trusting the universe. Yes, because even what is perceived to be a negative is transformative, has purposes, and presents an opportunity for growth.
    – Silencing the mind and being still. Yes, yes, and yes!

    This post is pumping me up to get still!

    • January 21, 2015 at 6:11 pm

      HAHAH! I love getting people excited to sit still:) Hey I do it every yoga class for savasana! AND we as humans need to rest our brains! Thanks for the awesome comment love!

  8. January 21, 2015 at 8:14 pm

    Another amazing post, Lindsay! This is so very true and still something that I have to remind myself of, every now and again! I have to say that you are inspiring me to follow through and work on making some serious changes for myself. I actually dusted off a couple of my work out videos to give them a try, and tried to get a bit more fruit and veggies on my latest grocery store trip. Even at almost 42, we can continue to learn and grow, to achieve our dreams! 🙂 Thank you so much and have an amazing week!

    • January 21, 2015 at 8:24 pm

      Yea girl! Inspiration comes at any age:) I was talking with Mama Klein today on how to eat “healthier”. I love the dusting off of the workout videos..Baby steps equal footprints! love love love!

    This is seriously a very inspiring post! Got married pretty early in my life and I thought that that’s it. It’s over. I can’t have fun anymore or I won’t be able to pursue my dreams anymore. But I realize that yes, pretty much like you, trust in something and having faith can lead me to my dreams.. maybe not now, but at the right time! Great message from you! 🙂

    • January 22, 2015 at 12:35 pm

      Thank you Rea and age is only a number as they say….Your entire life is spent making your dreams come true! xo

    I jurst re-read and am trying to “remember that no matter what you are going through, and what obstacles lay ahead, shift your conscious mind to something that comforts you. Ground yourself before panic shows it’s nasty face. Know that you will get to the light at the end of the tunnel, you always do…..”

    Mondays early at the office….I needed a quick reminder.
    Namaste
