Patience. I have to admit, one of my toughest ongoing lessons. I’ve had visions of me literally sitting on my hands to keep me grounded in a place that is true. Growing up, I remember my mother’s words, “patience is a virtue”, never really understanding its meaning, until now. Much of patience is living in the “now”, putting one foot in front of the other and allowing spirit to lead you. I remind myself that “it’s in God’s time, not mine” when I want to jump without thinking and feeling through the process. When we do the work that is required, and trust, we are led to the place we are meant to be at the time.
How many times have I heard a client, friend or family member say to me, “but I want it now!” We have become such a quick fix society that we have trained ourselves to believe that instant gratification always meets our needs. I suggest that allowing the process to play out, while focusing on your inner work, will get you to your destination with a firmer foundation in place. It may not be in your time frame, but it will come. My dad used to say, “if it sounds too good to be true, it always is.” As I experience life, I have found his statement to be real.
Be patient. Listen, follow your intuition and your truth will find its way.
