📺 IWFGG | How to Trust in Divine Timing





00:00:00.820 --> 00:00:30.690

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Hello! Hello, and welcome to Inner Work for Greater Good. I am Emily Eldredge. Your host s post desk this show, and i'm so glad you're here so happy to have you. I hope you will look around if this is your first time joining me on the show. Look around, check out past episodes in which I go really in depth in my work. The ChangeLight System which clears your inner struggles and reveals your inner strength so that you can fully live your Truth and have the greatest impact


00:00:30.700 --> 00:00:35.179

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: possible, whatever that is for you. So,


00:00:35.550 --> 00:01:04.149

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: as I often do, I lately, I've been sharing in my shows things that I've been like working on and struggling with, hoping that maybe it would help you with your own journey, and maybe stuff that you're trying to deal with. You know yourself. And so lately I've done this Actually, as I was planning to show I was like, you know. I think I've talked about this a few times sort of peripherally, and I think I need to talk about this a little more in depth, even though i'm still processing, and that is,


00:01:04.170 --> 00:01:34.159

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: uh trusting in what I would call divine timing, and that's not meant to be like a religious statement, more sort of a general spiritual thing, divine timing um, and learning how to trust and divine time, and see the smile on my face is because i'm kind of internally laughing at myself, because i'm really like I feel like the universe is really been like. Well, it's been happening for a long time, but I feel like, especially lately. It's like really forcing me to really surrender to some other timing


00:01:34.170 --> 00:02:03.539

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that is not mine. Basically, Now, I, like many of us, have lots of big plans and lots of big dreams and visions and things I want to create. And uh, you know, I've known this for quite a while like what I wanted to create or the vision I have. And yet it's like, okay, some of it kind of forms and shows up. But then other, but others still not there, and no matter how hard I tried to push the needle forward, or whatever the term is, no matter how hard I tried to like,


00:02:03.550 --> 00:02:18.249

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: make things happen, or to get things done in a particular time. It just doesn't seem to work that way. Uh I I I It's just always been envious of people where I felt like they could just put their notes to the grindstone. And it happens I have,


00:02:18.270 --> 00:02:47.549

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I would say, in my adult life I have never been one of those people, or rarely have I been. Now I say, in my adult life, because, you know, going through, you know, middle school and high school and college like I would do that. I would put my notes to the grindstone usually, and I could do pretty well I didn't. I did well in school, and so I could just really, you know, go for it. It wasn't fun. I didn't necessarily like it, but I had to write a paper I had to study for a test. Um, but it also, you know. I think about it now, and i'm like it really so. What


00:02:47.560 --> 00:03:16.729

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: contrary to my natural rhythm, like I was never even taught that I might have my with them, because it was always about trying to accomplish things or trying to get good grades or trying to get into the school or whatever, and so but as an adult, you know, without that sort of structure of school, it kinda has opened up a bit more of um, you know, free for all a little bit. And obviously I've got other types of structures in my life. But the point is that you know it. Create it, it has,


00:03:16.740 --> 00:03:25.669

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's. It's been an interesting journey when it comes to timing, and so I want to share with you, and let me know if you feel the same way. I definitely have


00:03:25.850 --> 00:03:53.910

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: these two parts inside me. One is like, Hurry up! Let's get it done. Go, Google now. It's calm down a lot over the years, mostly because I've had to work on it to calm it down, because what would happen is i'd be pushing to try to make something happen, or at least internally. And then for me, what happens, though, is something holds me back like it Doesn't work for me to stress about things. It doesn't work for me to pressure myself about things. I end up just feeling blocked. It actually has the opposite effect on me,


00:03:53.920 --> 00:03:57.340

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and I talked about blocks in the previous um


00:03:57.350 --> 00:04:26.170

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: episode where I talked about. When is something um, an actual fear block versus an intuitive block, and I've become much more aware again. See if this applies to you, or you could apply it to your life. I become much more aware of when is something an intuitive block and not a fear block. And what I found is that a lot of times the intuitive block Um, that's not really based on fear has more to do with um that it's not the right timing, like i'm trying to push internally to get something done.


00:04:26.660 --> 00:04:32.849

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the other part of me. So I got the part that pushes. But then I've got this other part of me. It's very calm,


00:04:33.350 --> 00:04:37.350

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: wise knowing I would call this my Truth.


00:04:37.610 --> 00:04:44.010

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It's just it knows who I am. It's who i'm here to be, and it has its own rhythm,


00:04:44.090 --> 00:04:46.250

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: its own pacing,


00:04:46.270 --> 00:04:48.579

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: its own timeline.


00:04:48.810 --> 00:04:53.120

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It's like it knows, so it's not in any rush,


00:04:53.290 --> 00:04:57.820

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: no pressure, no hurry, and it's so peaceful


00:04:57.900 --> 00:05:10.089

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and so what I've been super super aware of lately is the contrast between these two and that. And here's some in this. This is the way to some questions that might be good for you as well.


00:05:10.340 --> 00:05:13.659

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So when I just talked before about


00:05:13.780 --> 00:05:23.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: what works versus what doesn't work for me now, different things might work or not work for you. But I found that what what doesn't work for me is pressuring myself,


00:05:23.570 --> 00:05:36.999

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: hurrying things, stressing out like it. Not only doesn't work, it makes it worse. And so one of the ways that I've had to really really do is really surrender


00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:54.889

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: to the divine timing, if you will, and it's funny, because, actually, as I say divine timing. I don't just mean it in terms of sort of people. Talk about the Divine plan. Let's say that there's a divine plan. I'm actually in this moment talking more about divine timing within me


00:05:54.900 --> 00:06:01.039

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: my um, the timing of my inner Truth, that my Truth knows


00:06:01.050 --> 00:06:31.039

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: the timing of things, and it knows the pace that's natural for me, and it knows the rhythm and the pace that I naturally like to go at. And this is really really important, because I think that we all have our own inner natural pacing and rhythm. Now I also want to say that I think sometimes we might have a faster pace, and some things in our lives, and a slower pace and other things in our lives, I mean. I look at the way like my husband and I are.


00:06:31.050 --> 00:06:58.170

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And you know there's certain things that i'm like really fast at, and he's just slower, and some things that he's like really fast at. And oh, so in other words, it's not as though there's in my opinion. Yeah, I haven't really gone in depth on this. But it's not like you only have one rhythm for everything. But what I becoming so aware of is this pacing and rhythm and timing In my case, when it comes to my work. I'll give you an example.


00:06:58.220 --> 00:07:17.019

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Oh, and that and that it's absolutely vital to surrender to that. Now I know that can be kind of hard, because Obviously we all have our pressures. There are, or deadlines we have to meet, and everything. But I think there are ways, even within those kinds of structures, to surrender to our own inner timing,


00:07:17.170 --> 00:07:47.079

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and really sink into the the timing of our own Truth, the rhythm and the pacing of our own Truth, that it wants us naturally to go at that feels good and right for us. So here's why I here's an example of like what's been going on for me, and you might again. I always like to share this, hoping that maybe you'll be like, Wow, Yeah, that same thing, or what if I look at my life in that perspective. So for me, I we, my my teammate, and I. We got a deadline. I'm going to be creating a new course. I am creating a new


00:07:47.090 --> 00:07:53.109

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: for us. In fact, I've been Well, i'll tell you the story. But i'm creating a new course and online course, and


00:07:53.390 --> 00:08:23.360

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and she's so awesome like basically she said, Okay, I will create the dead, the timeline with the deadlines. You just tell me how long you think it's going to take to do each of these things, and so I set it up so that I would have enough time like. So, for example, recording the course, So It took me like two or three days to really organize it and figure out, Okay, here's the structure. And then I said, Okay, I want three days to record the course, and and then i'm another like two or three days to edit it, et cetera. So in terms of the recording the course, there's the part of me that goes.


00:08:23.370 --> 00:08:26.089

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Okay. You got your three days. Hurry up, do it. Let's go. Let's go


00:08:26.140 --> 00:08:34.979

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and it's like, And and and so then I think. Okay, I have to go ahead and record it because I don't want to save it for the last minute. Right? You gotta try to do your homework ahead of time.


00:08:35.559 --> 00:08:40.230

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Well guess what? No recording on that first day. Okay, That was Monday.


00:08:40.440 --> 00:08:49.179

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Today, yesterday, Tuesday I was like, okay, I was like, Yeah, I woke up. I'm gonna do the course this morning. It's gonna be great. So it's like, Okay, go ahead and do it.


00:08:49.290 --> 00:08:58.819

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And then it just didn't happen. And then finally, like I'm losing light in the day. It's getting dark here. I'm in New York. It gets dark by like four hours, and then,


00:08:58.930 --> 00:09:14.670

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and I've I've got my lights. But the point is I was like, okay. Now I've I've got to do it. So all of a sudden there's this pressure. I've got to finish the reporting, even though I also had today to report it. I was like No, no, I don't want to wait to the last minute. I've got to do My! When we show we write all these things that we tell ourselves


00:09:15.050 --> 00:09:24.539

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it didn't happen, and I I I was like, Okay, i'm gonna do it. And I sat down in front of the, you know, like I am right. Now you record this, and then it was just like Block,


00:09:24.710 --> 00:09:29.139

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and I I couldn't do it, and I saw her going.


00:09:29.810 --> 00:09:33.259

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I don't want to wait till tomorrow. I get one it,


00:09:33.390 --> 00:09:40.760

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: but I sort of tuned in, and I was like, Okay. So i'm not feeling it right now. Am I going to feel it tomorrow?


00:09:40.880 --> 00:09:53.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I just got this feeling that was like, Yeah, you're gonna do it. And I also got this feeling. That part of what was trying to be proved to me was like, Trust the timing relax. It's gonna get done. You just need to relax.


00:09:53.560 --> 00:10:13.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so, sure enough, I woke up this morning. Showered, did my hey, you know? And Then I sat down to the course, and I was like, This is fun. This is exciting. This is great, not blocked, not scared, not nervous. Just yeah. So that's what I've been doing this morning. One way of saying that, like


00:10:13.650 --> 00:10:20.710

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I was pressuring myself for the past two days, and then finally, this morning i'm like, Yeah, this was the time I was supposed to do it, so


00:10:20.920 --> 00:10:24.850

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I guess what i'm saying is like, i'm saying a few things. One is


00:10:25.250 --> 00:10:27.790

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: we have our own in our timing.


00:10:28.000 --> 00:10:44.529

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: There is a divine timing that we all have inside us. We all move at our own paces. We all have our own rhythms, and then I find, at least that when I trust my own rhythm, and I trust my own timing, things feel better.


00:10:44.540 --> 00:10:53.550

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: They work better when I stop pressuring myself to be a certain way, or do things at a certain time, it just doesn't feel right.


00:10:53.630 --> 00:11:13.250

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It it backfires, or i'm not as effective. I'm. Not as productive, et cetera. And so that's one thing for another. Another point I want to make is notice how like our brain will play tricks on us and tell us. No, no, no, no! You should be doing this. But when the really peaceful part in my case, that that that Truth is, Um, you're good.


00:11:13.260 --> 00:11:16.170

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You're fine. You really don't need to worry about it.


00:11:16.380 --> 00:11:32.659

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That's the part that I personally want to trust, and then i'm learning to trust that we're kind of laugh about it. I'm like It's still learning to trust my divine time that my own inter timing. And just as I would hope that you would learn to trust your in your timing. And the other thing that I really want to


00:11:32.670 --> 00:11:38.049

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: point out here. And I've said this in past episodes. But I really want to drive this home, too, is,


00:11:38.230 --> 00:11:42.409

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Look at nature. So where do we all come from? We come from nature.


00:11:42.620 --> 00:11:45.989

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: We come from planet Earth. We come from Mother Earth,


00:11:46.080 --> 00:12:13.960

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and you've probably heard the whole metaphor before about, you know you can't. You can't hurry up like you know the time from like a seed, then sprouts into a, you know. Let's say it grows into a flower, and then the pedals open right. You cannot hurry that process along. You can give it what it needs. No water soil, plants for whatever you can give it, what it needs to grow. But if you again, Players, if you if you go okay, the seed is planted.


00:12:13.970 --> 00:12:18.729

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Okay, Plenty of the seed for yeah, that one for you for it. Okay, yeah, great like


00:12:18.910 --> 00:12:34.479

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: the seeds. Not gonna go like to see It's gonna be like It's just gonna do it. It's gonna to do, because it knows because it knows how long it takes to what it germinate and sprout, and I don't know all those things. You probably know better than I do. I know


00:12:34.490 --> 00:12:39.630

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you know botanist here. Um! But like it it, there's a There's a a process,


00:12:39.890 --> 00:12:48.010

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and it needs to go through that process, and then, when it's ready, it'll come above the soil, and it knows when it's ready,


00:12:48.040 --> 00:12:55.349

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and then it'll shoot up, and then it may be a bud, and then the but if you go. It's a but it's gonna be a flower.


00:12:55.700 --> 00:12:59.689

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: What are you gonna do, You're going to destroy it. You've heard this before, Sure.


00:12:59.920 --> 00:13:08.739

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But the point is, Nature has its own timing, same thing as the seasons. You can't expect winter to be summer.


00:13:08.750 --> 00:13:23.069

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You can't expect spring to be fall. There are different seasons. There are different times of the year, the the plants, the animals that everything is going through its own process is their own processes


00:13:23.150 --> 00:13:37.810

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: to experience whatever you know they need to experience or grow, and whatever ways they need to grow or hibernate whatever is. And my point is this like really, really, really?


00:13:38.250 --> 00:13:40.580

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And again. I'm speaking to myself here, too,


00:13:40.910 --> 00:13:46.620

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it really tune into like what nature is teaching us. Nature doesn't hurry,


00:13:46.940 --> 00:13:54.500

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you know. If you see a stream bed, you know, stream rushing by really fast. It's not because it's hurrying to get anywhere.


00:13:54.650 --> 00:14:08.750

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It's just taken by gravity. It's just flowing over rocks. Now you might say, Well, the salmon, you know they're swimming upstream, and they're pushing hard against the current. Okay? Well, that's naturally what they do.


00:14:08.830 --> 00:14:22.910

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: That is their natural thing that they do so you wouldn't stop a salmon, or you wouldn't try to help it along. There's stuff i'm sure that experiences and learn from, and there's a timing, for when it even starts that journey,


00:14:23.160 --> 00:14:33.630

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: so the whole point is like, What if we really really tune in to our own divine inner divine timing


00:14:33.770 --> 00:14:35.520

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and trust it


00:14:35.700 --> 00:14:53.290

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and try to, even in the midst of stresses and pressures and other things that we go through. Because, yeah, okay, sometimes, like, yeah, you gotta make that train on time. Yeah, you gotta like, get to soccer practice for your kids on time, you know. Or yeah, you got, I mean, Yeah, but


00:14:53.880 --> 00:14:57.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: in. But as a general rule in our lives,


00:14:57.920 --> 00:15:00.150

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: tuning into


00:15:00.240 --> 00:15:11.819

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: the rhythm that's most conducive and the timing, and that piece that feels that rhythm that's most conducive and peaceful for us,


00:15:11.950 --> 00:15:23.180

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: so that as we're going to soccer practice or catching that train, we're doing it from that place of trusting our own timing and our own in a rhythm and peace.


00:15:23.870 --> 00:15:32.779

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Imagine if you lived your life that way, and this is something I talk about frequently is that it's not. It's not just about what you do. It's how you do it.


00:15:32.930 --> 00:15:45.819

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So we can be living our lives doing exactly the same things. You could have one life one day and a like in your life, and you can go through it with stress and fear, and anxiety, and worry, or anger, or whatever,


00:15:46.050 --> 00:15:59.519

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and you do the same activities, and then you could go through another day, and you're like, do the same activities. But you could do it with the acceptance. You could do it it. You could do it with, you know. Trust you could do it with


00:15:59.870 --> 00:16:15.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: calmness. You could do it with joy. You could do it. So it's not about the actions necessarily, but how we do them. And I think the timing I know that i'm being taught that timing is a big part of it, And timing is something that I've been really


00:16:20.480 --> 00:16:23.809

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: my Truth and everything. They're not forcing me, but it's kinda like,


00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:27.139

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Yeah, yeah, Okay? Well, you can try it your way, but


00:16:27.190 --> 00:16:41.619

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: not going to be good. So it's a forcing not really forcing. But you know It's really teaching me that I need to surrender to my own inner timing. And so some questions to ask yourself is, you know, what is your rhythm,


00:16:41.980 --> 00:16:49.749

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: what works for you, and what doesn't? And when I say works for you, I think i'm thinking in terms of what brings you piece


00:16:49.820 --> 00:16:59.129

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: versus what brings you stress like going about something this way, or having this approach to it, or having these thoughts around it. Does that bring you peace? Does that mean bring you stress?


00:16:59.140 --> 00:17:10.099

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Would it bring you more peace or stress to just trust that there is a timing for you and for everything, and to trust that, and to follow that flow within yourself and in your life.


00:17:10.530 --> 00:17:13.679

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Um! And also to


00:17:13.690 --> 00:17:31.940

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: think of something in nature like. Look at something that you resonate with in nature that you could use as even a bit of a wise guide for you in your life. Uh that you can use as as inspiring wisdom to help you. Uh, really trust in yourself and your own Truth, and your own divine timing.


00:17:32.250 --> 00:17:53.300

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Alright, I hope, as always, this has been helpful. My name is Emily Eldridge. Change light ChangeLight.World. Come, check us out. Lots of new stuff.
