Timing

I am on holidays this past week and I had a definite plan for spending my time effectively. Well, the plan isn’t unfolding as I thought. Not because I didn’t want it to. I truly had intentions of launching the preliminary steps in achieving a goal.
Every time I sit down to start, I get this feeling in my gut that says, “Not now, not yet…” What do you mean not now, not yet? My mind argued with my intuition. Yet every time I sat down to start the process of turning my goals into reality, I stopped. This is NOT what I had planned. I am a go-getter. Why has my “getter” decided to stay in neutral, instead of going full throttle for what I want? Tears came to my eyes as the answers came in my quiet moments…
…. the foundations are being set Liz… be patient…
…. you need to stay where you are for a reason… but it will all be clear soon…
…. what you think you want, even though you have wanted it for a year, and feel it in your soul, might not match the awesomeness that is waiting for you…
…. when you relax and let go, your heart’s desires come to you…
Blah blah blah. I didn’t want to hear that wisdom come from within me. I wanted what I wanted and I just wanted it. So there, Universe! :)
Arghhhh – okay, okay. I get it. Wait. Sigh. I understand that waiting for the right time is crucial in realizing dreams. But I can’t help but silently scream that I want things to happen now!! Tee hee!
I understand that setting an intention is not magical. There is a process, and I have to grow into the next stage of my life, and know, know, know that I am ready at many different levels.
I have experienced the joy of letting go of a desire, and when I least expected it, it comes into my life easily and effortlessly. All of my needs and dreams have been realized in the past, but only after foundations of new learning have been cemented into my character. So I guess metaphorically the cement hasn’t quite solidified. That’s okay. I will be happy and continue living the best way I know, a day at a time.
It is growth for me to realize that taking action when the time isn’t right is just silly. I have had plans go sour by forcing them to happen. It really is about letting go and being happy without what I want. Double sigh. I am laughing at myself and my humanness. Life truly does teach me daily what I need to remember and know. :)
How can you gently remind yourself that timing isn’t yours to control? How can you honor your intuition and let life unfold naturally instead of trying to force it? This can be a key to living beyond limits.
