When Things Seem To Be Falling Apart, Miracles Are Happening!

I have had quite an experience this week after being in NYC during Sandy. I was in lower Manhattan for days with no power and used that time to do a lot yoga and meditation by candlelight. I spent time reflecting, sending light and prayers to all the people affected by Sandy. I know that many people felt their world was falling apart. As I returned home, it seemed as though everything in my life was falling apart. I stayed strong in my prayer and meditation and asked for guidance on my next steps, knowing that this is only an illusion that is creating miracles. That is when I was reminded by my beautiful friend about the process of chemicalization. Bestselling prosperity author Catherine Ponder wrote a lot about Chemicalization; her books always help me shift my awareness.

“You’ve heard it said that things have to get worse sometimes before they can get better; that the getting worse process is actually a part of the improvement process; that what seems failure is actually success being born in the situation. That’s chemicalization! Chemicalization sounds like a negative process, but actually it is a very positive one – a natural, normal one. Though it is an uncomfortable experience, it is worth going through, because it is always a sign that cleansing is taking place. Something higher and better always results from this experience. When these periods come, remind yourself, this is nothing to fear. This is not evil. There is only good at work in this experience. Healing is now taking place in my world. I rest, relax and let it.” As you nonresistantly meet chemicalization in this way, very soon brighter conditions will appear.” – Catherine Ponder

When it seems that everything is falling apart, that is when miracles are truly happening. Even though these changes may be scary, there is a divine healing taking place that is creating better situations for you. I have been through this process before and it is challenging. When you stay aligned with faith knowing that there is a divine plan unfolding, you allow this process to go much smoother. Hold on to the belief that the Uni-verse loves and supports you. Trust that these shifts in your life are bringing you closer to your heart’s desire. You may feel sadness arise as your release old patterns of attachment. Love yourself through this and give yourself space to do whatever you need in the moment to support yourself, whether it be going on jog, yoga, meditation, a bath, reading, chanting mantras. Try talking to someone who can give you a higher perspective; allow the support in. By releasing sadness, you are opening to more joy – let it flow. This is a time of change and unwavering faith. Despite appearances the Uni-verse is working in your favor to help you grow and create more. Beneath the illusion of this human experience is pure Love and Light, -there is nothing to fear.


I trust the Uni-verse loves and supports me unconditionally. I am open and ready to be guided in the direction of my heart’s desires.

    In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy when many of our lives and worlds have been turned upside down like a bad dream, not to mention dealing with heartbreak from failed relationships and the everyday stresses of financial burdens, etc. I have felt that ‘world crashing down’ feeling a lot this past month.  Knowing “the Universe is on my side” and trusting in the grace of a perceived disaster are mantras I’ve been holding onto for support.  Thank you for this blog – I agree with the others that it was beautifully written and needed now more than ever.

    • Thank you Lauren. Allow yourself this release. Every time the harsh thoughts come up affirm that you are supported. Regardless of outer appearances, your good is now coming to pass! As you allow these situations to help you release any ideas that are no longer serving you,  you are creating room for your life to be filled with Grace. Om Shanti~

    Thank you Hilary. Your words are very supportive and centering. 
    I resigned my job two weeks ago. I was working in a place where I was experiencing much pain and suffering. I knew in my heart that it was 100% the right moment to go. I had a new job lined up, a back-up job and a back-up, back-up job. Following hurricane Sandy, the jobs that I had ready to go all changed. The path before me is not clear and its scary. Your soothing words reminded me to trust my intuition and my choices, not to doubt or stress-out. I didn’t expect this gap time. Im not sure what the best next step is, but I do know that the Universe has my back – in the best way.Thank you.

    • Thank You Kerri,
      These situations come up with the purpose of triggering us to release. Don’t judge the fear or any emotions, just love yourself. Know that by going through this process you are letting go of what has been holding you back form creating your heart’s desires. You are not alone, we are all clearing this on a mass energetic level. Meet these circumstances with faith and non-resistance. Affirm your good and allow the Uni-verse to show you how abundant, loved and supported you truly are.

        Hi Hilary,
        I wanted to follow up because your loving advice was so helpful. It’s been 2 months since I resigned my job and ventured through a flurry of opportunities that came up and fell apart in that time. I am now happy employed as an architect again in NYC, but the greatest lesson that I realized just yesterday was that this time of termoil exposed to me my old relationship patterns and beliefs that weren’t serving me. Patterns like running away and starting anew when relationships are painful and beliefs like ‘I am not supported’, ‘I am not valued’, ‘I can do everything on my own’, and most strongly ‘I am not worthy of deep commitment’. This transition time has showed me that I am deeply supported and valued by my family, dear friends and professional community, that it’s ok to ask for help, and that my heart truly knows that I am worthy of deep loving commitment. I am taking steps to be more commuted to my own promises to myself. Thank you so much for your advice. It came at a crucial time for me and in a way that touching and helpful and that made all the difference. Much love to you and happy new year!

        • Thank you Kerri. Sending you much love and light. Love and forgive those thoughts whenever they come up. You are truly divine and you offer and amazing gift to this world. Allow yourself to be supported and loved, you deserve it. I see you. Namaste.

    Thank you for sharing…it is so true. When we are in resistance to the changes taking place we create suffering for ourselves rather than an opening for change that may be illuminating. It is our egos that create the resistance. When we can choose to just move through our struggles, we are more likely to be stronger and wiser!

    • “When we are in resistance to the changes taking place we create suffering for ourselves rather than an opening for change that may be illuminating.” words of wisdom! Thank you Estee <3 <3 <3

    • I am so glad to hear that. Stay focused on gratitude and your heart’s desires knowing the rest is clearing. Many blessings to you.

  • Karen

    Wow – talk about serendipitous messages! 
    I was just reading a book this morning that mentioned the concept “chemicalization” but didn’t really expand much on it.  Then it comes up again in your blog and I find  it relates directly to something I am currently working through.
    Uni-verse, thank you…thank you…all is well…
    Awesome post, Hillary – *hugs*

    • Yes the Uni-verse gives you everything you need at the perfect time. I am so happy that divine synchronicity is lighting your path. Your attitude of gratitude is bringing you many blessings. Lots of love to your Karen!

    Thanks for the article Hillary. I am interested in the chrystalization process. I will read more into that. I know a lot of people including myself are going thru a lot of uncertainty right now. Thanks for showing your light and fresh perspective.

    • Thank you Jjprana! It the Chemicalization process and Catherine Ponder talks a lot about it in her book, The Dynamic Laws Of Healing. I highly recommend it. Catherine Ponder lives in Palm Desert too! It is important to give yourself space to go through this process. Lots of love~

    YES!! I love this so much, having faith, and knowing through chaos and through the storm there are clear skies on the other side has helped me so much through a recent tumultuous time. I hear we are also in Mercury Retrograde which is a time of things falling apart, in order for things to be built back up stronger, with a better foundation to build an even mightier future to come, yes! Your words are so powerful and full of truth and love always, thank you Hillary!!

    • Yes, the Uni-verse helps us to release what is not longer serving us in many ways. Let go of any ideas that come up without self judgement. The grace of God is now illuminating my life in every way. Thank you, Theresa!

    Reading this was the perfect way to end my long night. You always bring light into my life & I love you for that.

  • Rosijr

    As I contemplate changes in my life, reading this could not have come at a better time. God and the Universe always know what we need and provide accordingly. I have let fear stop me many times from finding my true path. I won’t any longer. Thank you!

    • Yes!! That is what I like to hear! Fear is only an illusion and the light of your love with clear any fear. I believe in you! Jump.. the net will be there.
