Why We Are Never Rejected, We Are Only Re-Directed

BY Chayla Baer        September 29, 2015

Sometimes in life we feel rejected. You may feel rejected due to feeling like you were passed over for a promotion. You may feel rejected due to feeling like you were left out of an activity with friends or a significant other. You may feel rejected due to losing a job. You may feel rejected when you were not accepted into the university you wanted to attend.

For me physically, rejection feels like an ache or tingles in my spine. For others, it may feel like a knot in their stomach.

Rejection is actually a false sense of reality. Rejection is not real. We are never rejected, we are re-directed. We are re-directed to people, places and activities that best serve our divine purpose.

Have you ever heard stories of people who thought they were rejected from getting the job of their dreams, when they actually were guided to something better? My sister, for example, applied for a job at a technology company and went on an interview. The company seemed like a great fit for her – great pay, location, perks. Fortunately for her, she didn't get the job. She felt defeated, low and confused. She pondered what she did during the interview process that warranted her not getting employment. She began to ponder if she had a purpose.

I said to her, “Why don’t you think about how you can best serve others?” “Have you thought about your passion and how it can impact others positively, while still having fun?”

A short while later, she found out about a company that is dedicated to helping those in the community with medical needs. She applied for the position, went on an interview and landed the job! Her boss told her weeks later that she knew they had found the right person as soon as my sister walked through the door. Due to her previous experience, coupled with her positive attitude and demeanor, my sister felt that she would be an asset to the company.

She was not rejected from the technology company she interviewed with; she was re-directed to something better.

Once we figure out how we can best serve the world at large, with our individual, unique talents - magical things can happen for us. Doors open just for us – sometimes suddenly and swiftly. Other times, it seems that it takes a long time to get where you need to be, but that's okay! Maybe you are being re-directed to take a course or seminar to help you fine-tune your gift. Maybe you are being re-directed to meet the right person who can help you on your path.

Everyone, hang in there! We’ve all got the “X” factor!
