I’ve been so busy helping friends who were impacted post-Hurricane Ian, and I wanted to post this about my recent re-release, Changing Destiny. I actually wrote this book many years ago, but edited and updated it twice. This idea came to me at the beginning of my writing career, when I decided I wanted to do this for a living (well, as much as you can in this business LOL). I love the idea of being destined to meet a person, so much so that you repeatedly dream about them. And when the BIG moment comes that you meet them—wait, what? It’s nothing like a destined romance meet. And that schism propels the heroine down a rabbit hole that tests her character, her vulnerabilities, and her belief in destiny itself. I also played with this idea in my first Offspring book (as Jaime Rush): A Perfect Darkness.
I do believe in destiny and soulmates, though in a broader sense than the lovers and meant-to-be-together-forever idea. We’ve all met someone whom we feel like we’ve known forever. We just click, right? We pull them into our orbit and we are in love, even if it’s friendship versus romance. It’s fun and fantastic…and then it’s not. Sometimes it falls apart. Or you drift apart. Our egos hate this. What did WE do? Why are they being so cruel???
It's taken me a lot of soul journeying to realize that this phrase is deeply true: sometimes we come together for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Accepting this is paramount to our wellbeing. As one of my soul-sisters says, we dance, and then we might waltz off to another person or another dance club altogether. Looking at the people in our inner circle tells us a lot about the vibration we’re putting out. Awhile back, I was grappling with an issue that had just come to light, and I kept attracting women who had the same family issue. It was so validating to be able to talk about it! I also attracted a friendship with a couple, and she had the same issue. But when I was able to come to peace with mine, and she was still caught up in the drama of her situation (and losing family connections), our friendship fractured. They said we were giving off weird vibes, and I realized that it wasn’t that exactly but that our vibes were no longer aligned. Seeing this made it much easier to let that go and bring in the amazing friends we have now.
I also noticed this in my other work life as an agent. When some issue diverts us from moving forward, and my gut says “yes, this is not supposed to be,” I am grateful when things don’t work out. And it may be that someone else is the right person to shepherd the project to its fruition.
In all parts of our lives, when people move on, it makes room for others to come in who will support our journey now…exactly where we are. And always remember that the person most integral to our growth, our happiness, and peace is ourselves. Be kind and loving to yourself first, because that’s the only way you can authentically be kind to those around you.
Love & Light,
