Have you ever wanted something in your life that you had no control over the timing of when or if it would actually happen? We hear about creating our reality. We learn tools to make that happen. And yet, we don’t always get what we want when we want it.
Currently I am in a situation where I find myself in a holding pattern. Last September, I made a decision to change a big part of my life, the specifics of which I am not able to share at this time. It is now August, and the change still has not occurred. I have used my manifestation tools to the best of my ability. I am staying in the mindset that it is complete. However, the timing is not what I would have wanted it to be.
This isn’t the first time I have wanted something that took longer to come to me than desired. In recent years, two situations really stand out to me. The first was when I met my current husband. He was not ready to date anyone when we met, and it took eight months of patience and being friends before he was ready. The second was when I was in a competition for a speaking event. I had to trust that my application was as strong as it could be and the message I wanted to share was valuable to the audience.
When I look back on these past experiences, the biggest lessons that I learned and remind myself of are to have trust and patience. If it is meant to be, it will come in the timing that is for my highest and greatest good. I also learned that I need to let go of the outcome and neutralize my emotions. Of course that’s easier said than done. In both of these situations, the outcome was favorable for me. I have been with my husband for five years, and I won a spot for the speaking event.
As I sit now in this holding pattern, my job is to raise my frequency to the vibration where this change already exists. I must have faith and trust that it is a done deal, rewiring my brain to know that it has happened. When I catch myself in the fear and doubt, I can actively flip my thinking and re-center myself to get to neutral.
What I am not supposed to do is to try to figure out the “how” or the “who” to make it happen. When we worry or try to figure out the logistics, our ego mind limits us to the possibilities. It restricts new potentials from showing up.
The Universe will provide to us when we are congruent with what we desire. Our job is to stay in that congruence for as long as possible. The more we can raise our vibration to match it, the more likely and quickly it will happen. This takes us being conscious of our thoughts. We have to get out of our complacency. And sometimes we just have to be patient and trust the outcome.
