Midweek Musical Magic – Que Sera Sera

I’m learning to listen to my intuition, allow the right things, people and experiences to come into my life and trust that the Universe has my best interests at heart and will guide me if I surrender to its power. That feels new, a bit scary and even a bit woo woo; and it also feel refreshing and exciting.

What is – just is right now and what will be will be with a little help, nudge or shove by the Universe.

Que sera sera is a nostalgia inducing song for me that speaks in part to this idea. It was made famous by the recently departed Doris Day in the Alfred Hitchcock movie The Man Who Knew Too Much. It sums up a way of life, way of thinking and way of being “back in the day”.

I agree in part with the sentiment in that what will be will be AND I also believe that we can shape and even create what will be rather than waiting to see, being a victim to or assuming a predestined future.

“When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother what will I be
Will I be pretty will I be rich
Here’s what she said to me
Que sera sera
Whatever will be will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que sera sera

Within these words are two “beliefs” I think are still prevalent in many people that often keep them trapped and victims to their circumstances and external opinion.

1. “Will I be pretty?” – assumes a belief of not being pretty already. This could lead to a view of oneself of not being enough. We often look to external sources to get our self worth and validation of who we are when I believe we are already enough – pretty, loveable, worthy, smart etc. Yes of course we can often do more to improve ourselves or change something we want to be different but I believe we must start from a place of “I’m already enough”
2. “The future’s not ours to see” – yes we can’t (yet) “see” the future from where we are but we can imagine it, picture it with all our senses and create that future with our thoughts, actions and beliefs.

“Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother what will I be
Will I be handsome will I be rich
I tell them tenderly
Que sera sera
Whatever will be will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que sera sera
What will be will be
Que sera sera”

And so if we are not careful we might live out and pass on our beliefs to the next generation which keep them stuck in outdated or unhelpful thought patterns and disconnected from their brilliance and beauty.

Que sera sera – if we create it.

  • Who do you want to be?
  • What do you want to be?
  • How will you imagine and created what will be?
