She Showed Up Right On Time — Divine Timing

She needed help. She needed to feel safe. She needed a home. And we didn’t think we were ready. The Universe had other plans.

WHAT IS DIVINE TIMING? WHEN WILL I GET WHAT I WANT?

Let’s answer your questions about divine timing.

This is Tootsie, the newest member of our family.

She waddled into our lives on November 9. Let’s talk about Tootsie and then about manifesting!

She was found outside, needing a bath, back legs not working well, and her breathing raspy. She was thought to be in labor or even poisoned. She went to a vet and then the people who found her needed to find her a safe place for the weekend, in out of the cold. I volunteered our apartment home.

I sort of immediately became a cat mom. I was studying her face, her body. I tried to pet her. And I begged her to poop before noon the next day.

And she DID! Overnight, she pooped and I was literally SO EXCITED to see the poop in the pan when I woke up.

She was eating. And enjoying rubs more frequently. And drinking water. And more pooping. Haha

I wanted to give her a new name to honor her new life with us. Nothing was coming to me immediately. And then a few days ago, I was talking to her and used “Tootsie” as a nickname and I KNEW in my body, this is her name!

I’d been mentally/energetically preparing for cat ownership for a while before she showed up. My thoughts were turning to cat ownership many times a week for at least a month before Tootsie showed up.

I’d feel how much I loved the idea of bringing a cat into our home while honoring my fears and doubts about being ready; and then just before I let my thoughts wander to other subjects, I’d surrender, “It’ll happen when it’s meant to happen.” I wasn’t taking any actions toward it. I just let my thoughts and feelings line up with a cat entering my life when it was meant to, and I took action when I knew I needed to take action (saying yes to taking her for “the weekend”).

About Divine Timing

Divine timing may not LOOK convenient. It may not feel like you’re ready yet. Actually… you might as well call Divine Timing this instead: Looks-Totally-Illogical Timing.

Once I saw her in those first moments, I KNEW she was going to be my furever pet. I was afraid to admit it, but I knew. Because I’d been preparing*, though I hadn’t prepared for a pet in any specific time frame, and this was divine timing. Divine timing may not LOOK convenient. It may not feel like you’re ready yet. (I had multiple moments of surrendering to the idea that I could do this and do this NOW.) There’s another name for Divine Timing that you can use: Looks-Totally-Illogical Timing!

How Preparation Plays into Divine Timing

I was only vaguely aware that I was mentally/energetically preparing for owning my first cat as an adult. (I grew up in a house with as many as four cats at a time so I’ve always loved them but I didn’t believe I was ready to own one yet.) Still, that’s what was happening.

My thoughts were turning to cat ownership many times a week for at least a month before Tootsie showed up. I’d feel how much I loved the idea of bringing a cat into our home while honoring my fears and doubts about being ready; and then just before I let my thoughts wander to other subjects, I’d surrender, “It’ll happen when it’s meant to happen.” I wasn’t taking any actions toward it. I just let my thoughts and feelings line up with a cat entering my life when it was meant to, and I took action when I knew I needed to take action (saying yes to taking her for “the weekend”).

The lessons here about divine timing and energetic preparation apply to any new experience you’ve asked to receive (no matter the degree to which you’ve consciously asked for it). This is manifesting.

Have you ever manifested something when it felt like you so were not ready? What does the story of Tootsie’s arrival in our lives bring up for you? You’re invited to share in the comments!
