Life is All About Timing

Welcome back to my Spiritual Awareness series. In this episode I’m talking about Timing and how significant it is to everything we do in life.

When life feels like it is at a standstill, the universe is giving us a pause. Like anything else we do in life like expending physical endurance, we need to take a minute to recover. The universe takes pauses too.

The universe will take us to where we need to be when the timing is most appropriate and in the right moment of our life.  I’m a firm believer in divine timing.

The right timing is crucial for events to run smoothly. If you’re late for work, you may be in trouble. If you give up on something too early, you may miss a good opportunity. If you keep doing the same thing over in the same way with the same unwanted results, you are wasting your time. If you get to the concert early, you’ll get a good seat; if you’re late, you may be in the back row. I think you catch my drift here.

Just as the examples above state the importance and relevance to timing, divine timing in life is just how the universe works with time and how those timings affect different aspects of our lives. How many times have we heard stories about people missing their planes, getting stranded and meeting someone then who’d they never have got to meet had they caught their flight? The universe decides when it’s time for us to meet someone who is supposed to be in our lives. It makes the circumstances around our lives at a certain moment coincide with where we need to be at that right particular moment to meet someone who may eventually become our life partner, and it may potentially be saving our life in divine timing because it’s not our time yet to leave this earth. An example of this:

My husband, who loved to tell me stories, often repeated pertinent stories that held great significance in his life. He’d told me about a trip he’d taken with a few guys for a hockey tournament they were playing in, about thirty years ago. In those days, my husband was a naughty playboy who was always in for a few drinks. The three men were sitting in the bar waiting for their flight when their names were called and told the flight was overbooked and asked if one of them could wait for the next flight. My husband put up his hand and offered to hang out at the bar and wait for another hour for the next flight. The flight he missed crashed. No survivors. I can only imagine digesting that moment when your plan was changed and you find out if you hadn’t done that, your life was over. Divine timing was responsible for that one. No different than the people who were sick or late for work, or day off from work when their work was in the towers warred down in New York on 9/11.

Timing is akin with reasons and seasons, we meet people for reasons and sometimes only for seasons, and if we don’t allow the time to come to make what needs to happen, we’ll get something else than what was meant for us.

Famous sayings with my thoughts attached:

There’s a time and a place for everything. Not everything is for now. If you make it so, it’s not going to be as beneficial as if the universe’s plans.

Time to call it a day. The end of the day, the mission, project, visit, etc., has ended.

Time is a healer. Is it? Time heals all wounds. Does it? The idea is that in time a physical wound will heal, an emotional wound will heal, but more like, soften. As the immediate sting dulls itself down, it is part of the healing.

Time to move on. We’ve over-extended our welcome. The project or relationship is finished.

Time is up. You must make that decision. You must stop what you’re doing now. The party is over.

Bad timing. When you meet someone in your life who could possibly be ‘the one’, but circumstances can’t allow it to happen.

Divine timing. Meant to be at that precise moment the universe makes something important, fun or good, happen.

A prime example of the right timing meant for me in my own life I was stuck in a bad relationship for seven years before I met my husband. The circles I traveled in were the exact same circles my husband traveled in during that time frame, yet we never crossed paths. We traveled the exact same nightclub circuit, he actually owned a condo two floors above mine for three years in the same building, yet we never knew or recognized one another, and my cars were from the dealership he worked at – and his son-in-law was my car salesman! Yet, the man was not in my radar. And oddly enough, I met my husband bumping into his son-in-law at an event where he’d brought my husband along with him.

If I’d have met my husband a few years before, too many elements in both our lives would never have allowed for anything to happen between us, or worse – maybe a whole lot of trouble because of my circumstances. I believe the bad relationship I was in was ‘holding space’ until the timing was right for me to meet the love of my life.

So, in essence, everything we do, time is factored in. If we eat a fruit before it’s ripe, it’s not going to taste as good. If you buy groceries with an expiry date, it’s letting you know if you don’t eat it by that date, the item is most likely to go off after the recommended date. If you make a big purchase without taking the time to do your homework by checking out all the available options, you might have missed a better deal or opportunity. The clock is set for everything we do in life, and the universe has the upper hand on deciding when it’s our best opportunity for best outcomes.

Can you recall any time the universe had redirected you after a roadblock and it turned out for the best?

Books by D.G. Kaye

One of the reviews for Fifteen First Times

Reviewed in the United Kingdom

Fifteen First Times’ fully describes this short, entertaining read in D G Kaye’s inimitable open and honest style – no subject is too difficult to approach or describe.

As with some other reviewers, there were several experiences I didn’t relate to, but found Kaye’s explanations of them engaging and sometimes eye-opening. The one that amused me most was ‘From Blonde to Wrong’. I began experimenting with dying my own hair quite early in my teens, and also chose to go red – a colour that both my cousins have by nature, and I coveted. Unlike Kaye, my first foray into hair colouring was using henna, and I was pleased with the results, so I have continued to dye my own hair, and the only time I ever got it done at a salon was the one time it turned out so dark it was almost black and I hated it – just as happened to Kaye with her first home effort!

No matter how painful the memories of some of these ‘firsts’, Kaye does not shy away from sharing the depths of feelings she experienced, and still manages to highlight the humour that characterises her welcome positive approach to life. I’m sure everyone will find some ‘firsts’ applicable to them – well worth the read.

  1. Divine timing is one of the most fascinating things to me. When I think about the odds of two people ever crossing paths, it’s mind-blowing. The odds are astronomical, and yet, through divine intervention, we are put where we need to be for a certain thing to happen. I’m always in awe of the way it works. Thank you for sharing, Debby!

  2. Great post, Debby:) I do believe everything had its time. That story about your husband gave me chills. It shows how things are meant to be in their own time. Hugs xo

  3. Wow, divine timing certainly worked for you, Debby! Similarly my husband and I had been in the same holiday hotel at the same time and had attended the same discos for a few years as teenagers and had never met. However, fate stepped in and we finally met up in September 1979. x

  4. Excellent post, Debby. I’m also a firm believer that everything happens exactly when it’s meant to happen, whether we realize it at the time or not. Thanks for reminding me of this today. Now and then, it slips my mind, and guess what? The TIMING of this post was perfect, and definitely eased my feelings about how a few things have gone in recent weeks. Thanks! 😀 ❤

  5. I’m totally in agreement with you on this one, Debby. And I just loved the example of the role timing played in meeting the love of your life. All the near misses were amazing, almost out of the realm of possibility. Then, of course, the stars aligned. Great post, Debby, and thanks for hosting, Sally.

  7. Interesting post, Debby. I guess it is impossible to know what would have happened if we had been, or hadn’t been in a particular place at a particular time, and if the results would have been that much worse or just… different. I’ve always been intrigued by the thought and by what ifs. I love the movie Sliding Doors, because there is a moment when the protagonist misses the underground, but then the story splits into two, and we see what would have happened if she had caught the underground and what if she didn’t. Nothing like that (at least important) has ever happened to me that way, but then again, I might simply not be aware of it. Thanks for making me think, as usual, Debby, and thanks, Sally.

  10. They say timing is everything, but there is also the element where decisions and actions change one’s path. Letting go is another aspect, one I haven’t quite achieved! Great post, Debby. xx
