The Law of Divine Compensation
“…there are four rules for miraculous work creation: Be positive. Send love. Have fun. Kick ass.” – Marianne Williamson
“The whole of what we know is a system of compensations. Every defect in one manner is made up in another. Every suffering is rewarded; every sacrifice is made up; every debt is paid.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I want you to solidify this very positive thought into your mind today. I want you to study it and I want you to believe it.
The Life Law of Compensation will do exactly what Ralph Waldo Emerson is quoted as saying – whatever you have lost, be it love, finances, purpose, your home, possessions in a divorce, or if you are currently entrenched in a less than happy circumstance – if you do the work and let go of any bitterness, resentment, fear and unforgiveness that is blocking you from receiving, trust me, not only will it be returned to you, but it will return a double portion – you will get double for your trouble!
Maybe not in the exact same form, but if you can imagine, it will be even better!
Yesterday while enjoying lunch with extended family and while we were reminiscing about life, I felt compelled to share a story with them.
Many years ago when my Grandmother was organizing her estate she asked me if I wanted her entire Royal Albert china set. Being kind of an old-fashioned girl who loves to entertain my first response would have been a resounding yes!
But with seven children and lots of grandchildren, anything that had true monetary value would have to be purchased and put back into the estate to be divided amongst the 7 children. With a brand-new baby and on maternity leave, disposable money wasn’t exactly available. And though I had no bitterness, I will be honest, I felt a little sad about not having my Grandmother’s china.
Well wouldn’t you know? Twelve years later my Aunt who did buy the china set for her daughter (who didn’t want it) called me to see if I wanted it and for free! It was in that moment I understood that in good time, what is meant for you, will come to you – only bigger than you could even thought possible. I was beyond grateful that she thought of me and gave this incredible gift.
This is not the first time I’ve experienced this life law. On one of the toughest nights of my life, one that included having my car towed after months of hard times, I met my husband the same day and boy did my luck change! It’s quite incredible how life always has a way of working out.
In her book The Laws of Divine Compensation, author Marianne Williamson gives us the bottom-line: “such is in the power of our thoughts to either attract or deflect miraculous breakthroughs. The universe is set up to work on your behalf.”
When you trust that the universe is for you and not against you, it becomes easier to forgive others and let go of resentment as well as fear because you know things will work out, and you know that there is no lack, but in fact there’s more enough for everyone and for you!
Today I want you to recount the times in your life when you were divinely compensated? Was it after a rough patch or a period of bad luck in your life or did it come after a long period of paying your dues? How did you feel when you received your divine compensation? We’ll talk more about this throughout the week. It’s all so exciting!
