I am in the process of relocating and I’ve never made such a big move before! I am fast approaching the final stages of preparation to move my household to another state. Soon, the movers will be arriving, and I have to admit I haven’t been feeling all that calm and spiritually centered. At this point, I’d rather describe myself as a hysterical control freak, who babbles much more than usual. Where does one find space for spirituality in this frame of mind?
It’s hard to find that calm center of my being. There’s a lot involved in moving to another state, and I haven’t been able to take my eye off the ball for one minute, for fear of forgetting a very important aspect of the move. That’s what I tell myself anyway.

Obviously, when it comes down to it, I really am a control freak. Why is it so difficult at times like this for me to trust the flow of life and my destiny? One would think I might have learned by now that when something is meant to be, it’s mine and it happens, regardless my mental chatter and drama.
So many aspects of this move could have gone sideways and upside down, and although it’s appeared to be very close to the crash and burn zone, everything has fallen into place and is working out fine. I’ve asked my angels over and over to please intercede for me and talk to all the people involved in my move – to get everyone in agreement on the order of things to get us all there in one piece, with an actual roof over our heads.
The angels have never let me down in the past and I’m always taken care of. So, why all the stress and control freakishness, I ask myself. Why can’t I just relax and smile when things look bad, and just trust that all things will work out for my highest good? Life would be so much more fun and a whole lot less stressful if I would just embrace that truth. But, oh no!
So, let’s say things didn’t work out or fall into place, and all my stuff ended up in a dark void called storage… somewhere between having a home and not having a home. Then what? Is that meant to be, or is it poor planning? Good question. Both, maybe?

I think if I give something my 100% best effort and things don’t work out as I had hoped, then there’s another plan for me. I’ve seen it happen over and over. I always look back and realize things worked out for the best after all, because I wasn’t meant to do what I had tried to force into reality.
So, with all this understanding and experience, why am I still a control freak? At some point in life I think we need to accept that we really don’t control everything. I think I comfort myself by being busy planning, and it does set my clear intention towards a goal. But how much of my outcome is me and all my planning, and how much is divine intention and destiny?
When I think about it, I realize I really can relax more and just enjoy the process of life. More importantly, I can trust the flow of life and my destiny. Doesn’t that sound like a lot more fun than being a control freak? Exactly! Practice. Practice. Practice makes perfect!
