I am in love with waiting patiently these days, because I have found the POWER in this space in time.
The waiting period between now and a dream actualized gives us time to PREPARE for the moment.
Mohammed Ali put on those boxing gloves long before his first fight. Oprah Winfrey practiced speaking as a little girl, long before the cameras were rolling. And everything you (and I) are doing right now is preparing us for OUR moment.
My recent attendance at an Abraham Hicks workshop reminded me that waiting is a juicy time.
Before I can see it, smell it, taste it or touch it, I can ENJOY it.
I see the lines of smiling people as I sign my books. The light on my face is warm, as I encourage a standing room only audience to love themselves in a dark auditorium. I can taste the salt in the air at the yellow house on Casey Key with a writing room that overlooks the Gulf of Mexico.
Yesterday morning, I even saw the sunflowers on the windowsill as white curtains billow through the kitchen on a sea breeze.
It’s PALPABLE! And not complicated.
Complication enters when I entertain conflicting thoughts on the same topic.
When I meditate on the details and how-to’s and uh-ohs, my power stance putters.
When I meditate on what is being created, it jazzes me so much I could levitate. It fills my faith tank so fully that I’ve got too much readiness to believe the bad.
What a thing to NOT to feel guilty about what the world deems important. (Note to Mom: No, that doesn’t mean I’ll stop being responsible. I will continue to work hard, pay my bills, remember peoples’ birthdays and to eat my vegetables.)
What I am learning, rather, is to not give attention to the squeakiest wheel and instead give focus to my INNER BEING.
My life – your life – is a petri dish. We establish (or not) a vibrational ecosystem that supports (or not) what we desire.
What is manifesting (or not) is what is dominant in our thoughts. Thoughts become THINGS.
“If you are not realizing movement on a topic, this influence of your inner being is being dominated by opposing thought.” – Abraham Hicks
What? You mean I’m hamstringing my own progress by entertaining opposing thoughts?
I thought I was just being practical!
Instead, I choose to be impractical and simultaneously psyched about the pipeline and its contents. THAT is where the fun is!
And SATISFACTION – right here and now, while you are “waiting” is proof that you are in alignment with SOURCE, God, the Universe, or however you wish to describe the Almighty Power that created ALL of this.
Find as many ways to feel as good as you can feel.
Worry is not how you love people, least of all yourself. Worry is clutter and resistance to that which we seek to manifest.
So what do I do today?
What inspires me.
My inner being (just like curling in the Olympics) creates a path of least resistance to my dream (which shall be referred to as REALITY from now on) as I chip away at little pieces through inspiration.
Find the POWER as you patiently wait. Don’t wait in loss or longing or lack. Wait in joyful anticipation. Enjoy it BEFORE it shows up in the physical.
And know that for this very thing; this moment in time, you exist. The spark of Divine put inside of you the desire to create this very thing – not to frustrate you! No! To give you a juicy vision, full of vitality and friskiness, as the cake bakes in the oven.
Who knew patience carried with it such power? Here are my parting thoughts and the new WOW:
A two-fer! That makes sense since it’s going to fuel us for two weeks!
May your “to-do” list be completed. I trust that it will.
And don’t forget to let your SOUL win the day, not the drumbeat of what you can see, feel, taste, smell and hear.
