Spiritual Slaps are SIGNS that the Universe is Course Correcting You


Do you feel like the universe is slapping you around sometimes? Do you sometimes wonder why so many things are seemingly going haywire in your life? Do you feel 'unlucky' or feel you may even be 'cursed' because there's drama in your life? Keep reading and you will finally make sense of it all...

Humans are tremendously stubborn creatures. We have a great tendency to neglect our soul's truth and persist along a path even when it's causing us pain. We have mostly fixed mentalities and sometimes hold on too tightly to beliefs, people or things that do not serve us. Ego, the great deceiver, often misguides us along our soul's journey and we end up losing our way in a maze of illusions and distortions. Thankfully however, the universe is brilliantly equipped with a built-in realignment protocol to alert us when we are NOT on path according to divine design. How genius is that!? 

The universe is a master of arranging signs, synchronisities and situations to catalyse spiritual change and ensure you fulfil your divine purpose -even when you're digging your heels in!

There are no mistakes or meaningless coincidences in the cosmos. Everything happens by divine design! It's not an exaggeration or a hippie philosophy- It's quantum physics. Science has proven that the universal law of cause and effect is encoded in our very existence. Yet we stubbornly continue to turn a blind eye to the synchronistic signs that appear in our life- even when they smack us square in the face! I happen to know precisely what that feels like...

I started my year with a metal shelf literally smashing me in the third eye! It seriously hurt and I totally embodied the 'poor me' mentality for a while, but upon reflection, I quickly realised that it served to realign me to my truth.

I was being very cheeky at the time. I was dishonouring my soul because I was resisting my medium abilities and willing them away. I was burdened by insights at times and just wanted to switch it off! I dropped out of being grateful and forgot how truly blessed I was to have an ability to help others. I was stuck in fear and started to selfishly want out. I was consciously planning to stop offering readings in the new year. Then on New Year's Eve afternoon, I visited a retail store right after completing a reading when SMACK BANG ...I received a big spiritual slap from the universe! 2016 literally went out with a 'BANG', and it was not the kind I had in mind! Boy did I get the lesson loud and clear!! I needed that to wake me up out of the ego trap that was consuming me, and I sooner realised I needed to stop blocking my psychic flow. Course Corrected! 


Spiritual slaps may seem scary, but they are sacred course correctors that serve to keep you on path. You invite them into your life when you ignore your intuitive insights, dismiss your inner compass and robotically preference your ego's so called 'rational thinking' over the spiritual intelligence of your soul. 

These events are cosmic awakeners that bump you out of the hynotic ego state so you recognise where you are violating your truth and stepping out of line spiritually. So when did you last get your serve?

Spiritual slaps take many forms. Generally they present in the form of unwanted circumstances and events. Some are harsher than others. It all depends on how much hold your ego has over you! If you're truly tuned out, stubborn, resistant or not aligned, you're cruising for a bruising! As they say, God throws a pebble, then a stone, then a brick! Basically if you're not inwardly tuned in, you will miss the signs that are continually appearing in your life and you may keep attracting challenges until you 'get it'. 

Here are some examples of spiritual slaps that serve as powerful course correctors:
