I wish to record events in my life that led me to conclude that the Universe (God) is answering my prayers and working miracles in my life, in this wonderful year of 2012.
I remember sometime in 2011, thinking to myself and making a resolution that I really needed to shift my career. I consciously told myself that my intention was to wind up the job that I was doing at the end of my contract year which was to be June 2012. I told myself that my path had to change as I felt that I had a whole lot of other things that I needed to accomplish in this life time. Perhaps my mission was calling as I felt that I had some purpose that I was not yet fulfilling in my current situation. So my intention was to find work or a project that I could do from home that would allow me flexibility so as to pick up these other activities which I had not yet fully embraced. However, I knew one of them had to do with my writing and the other with my spiritual evolution and also working with women and children to help them transcend the challenges they faced on a day to day basis.
So it so happened that I put these thoughts and intentions in the back of my mind or into my subconscious mind as I concentrated on getting other pressing tasks completed as well as taking care of the day to day responsibilities of raising a family. The year 2012 has been touted as the year
when shifts are bound to happen on a grand scale in people’s lives. I started
the year studying a lot of the spiritual events taking place as well as the writings of several great light workers. One of my favorite bloggers is Christine Hoeflich whose teachings on connecting with the higher self-have
opened my consciousness to a higher aspect of my soul. Her explanations about how things will seem to go wrong for some people just so that they will begin to seek inside for solutions and connect with their inner guidance could not have come at a better time. She states that some people will go through issues such as losing their homes, jobs, marriages etc. just so that they would be awakened to this reality. So from the beginning of the year I felt I was on the right track and preparing myself for any eventualities. However, deep inside something told me I was not going to face any disasters so to speak. I suppose that was my inner guidance.
Late in January 2012, I received a job offer even though I had not yet started actively seeking. I was actually headhunted and my inner campus told me this was it, I had to take it. Even though this would have been contrary to my earlier resolution of scaling down so that I could scale up on the other purpose areas of my life, I did not feel any hesitation at all. In fact, this job came with higher responsibilities and going into a totally new ball game that would be taxing on my time and commitment. I justified my decision by saying that this was the change I wanted, that I was itching for something new, though not looking deep into the side effects of starting something of that magnitude. Anyway, I joined this new organization towards the end of March and it was a whirlwind transition because I was leaving an organization I had worked for , for the past 10 years and joining a company that had recently set up in the country. Plus I took up the management of 3 demanding departments.
As I began to settle into the new routine, the first couple of months were really challenging as I had to learn the ropes while at the same time managing staff and top management expectations. In my mind, I had the highest priority and challenge of raising staff morale and commitment, while also introducing new improved methods of doing work. By the third month
things began to stabilize as we were also coming out of winter but I became very unsettled within. It was like a big dissatisfaction with my work which just whirled up and overshadowed all the good work I had been doing. I became very unhappy and could see an uphill struggle looming in the horizon. I had to make a decision fast. Should I continue with this work or quit and find something new to do? I could feel in my bones that this work was not right for me. This was not what I had intended to do in my next life. I had made a big mistake plus barely a month after my move from my former job , I had been offered and declined a different version of the job I had been doing by my former employers. I was stuck with a job I did not like while I had closed the door on a job offer. I started checking deeper inside for a solution which I felt I needed fast.
I started thinking of approaching my former employers to open dialogue on the offer I had turned down but now was not sure if the door had not been completely shut. I began speaking to relevant people to try and glean some information and I established that the job was still open and now the only challenge was to master enough courage to approach my former bosses. I must say an angel came in the form of my daughter who I shared my dilemma with. She immediately encouraged me to open dialogue with my former employers and I thought it was good to take the confidence of a young soul and apply it to my situation.
Sure enough, the moment I decided to connect with my former boss, things started moving with supersonic speed and I was caught up in another whirlwind spin and before I knew it I was back at my former employer but in a different capacity. All these changes, i.e. leave my old job, join new company, and leave new company and re-join my former employer happened within 8 months such that by August of 2012 I was back at the old
Now the sweetest part to this, which has raised my awareness of what the universe is doing for me is that; in my new role, I have a choice of where I want to work-home or office; I decide on my own schedule and what I need to accomplish on a day to day basis. I now do mostly virtual work with a few trips outside the country to support the countries in my portfolio. Isn’t this what I dreamt of doing or becoming, way back in 2011? I can now factor in the other areas of my life where I felt I had been abandoning due to lack of time and flexibility in my former role. I can now work around the demands of my job so that I give my employer value for his money while at the same time incorporating time to pursue those interests which were suffering in the backburner like writing, mentoring and coaching others to help raise the consciousness of humanity, just in time for the great shift which is happening in 2012.
My shift began at the beginning of 2012 and I will have an opportunity of celebrating with the rest of the world as it awakens to the new world that is unfolding. The universe answered my prayers in 2012.
