student asking question

Could you paraphrase the sentence "the universe will not be ignored" please? Does it mean "the universe will not ignore me"? Because of the passive voice, it's tricky to understand this sentence.

The meaning of "the universe will not be ignored" here is "what is meant to happen will find a way to happen". She is saying that even though her mom said she couldn't skip school, school was cancelled anyway. Therefore, she thinks the universe "helped" her not go to school on this day.
