Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine ~~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
Sometimes we just get in our own way. Sometimes we want something so bad that we actually end up blocking what we most want to happen. The energy you send to the Universe is the type of energy you will receive back. Try to clear your mind of clutter and go to a peaceful place and imagine what you want, send it out into the Universe and just let it go.
Bring peace into your being. Things will happen the way they are supposed to happen. Most often, in a short amount of time, what you are wanting or looking for will come, and sometimes it is not what you thought you wanted. For then, what you truly need and want does come to you in time. It is the Law of the Universe.
