When bamboo is planted, it can take up to five years to break through the soil, but then it can grow up to 3 feet in just 24 hours.
It also takes weeks for a young chick to develop and finally break through the shell on it’s own, now ready for life. Thus, if a hen tried to rush the process, the fledgling chick might not survive. And so it is with you. You will destroy the precious chick if you tamper with the shell in your impatience to rush the process. You have to give life time to hatch.
Roses take six weeks to grow from bud to bloom, but all the conditions of sun, soil, water and temperature must be right for the brightest and most aromatic blossoms. We cannot force open the bud without destroying the bloom. The rose cannot be rushed. It must unfold on it’s own time, not ours.
Life is not instant coffee. It’s not a drive-thru where we ask for something and it magically appears. Life and quality take time. So when we pray, why do we expect our answers or hopes to show up with the snap of a finger?
One of the most powerful tools in manifesting the life of your dreams is patience. Impatience can damage whatever it is you’re hoping for. When you rush into anything it usually has desperation or panic attached to it. As we all know; positive thoughts breed positive outcomes. When planting your intentions, fill your mind with faith, not fear and watch your manifestations blossom, hatch, sprout naturally. Just let it happen.
When you plant a watermelon, does a cantaloupe grow in its place? So how can fear or doubt ever lead to the change and miracles we seek? Every thought is a seed you plant into your consciousness and what shows up will match the thoughts you ruminate on all day long.
Good gardeners don’t rush the process. Neither should you. Plant your seeds, give them time to grow and reap your newfound harvest.

As I taught yoga, my client barked back at me, blaming ME for the blast of heat coming in through the windows on a 90 degree day. She wanted it cold and viciously yelled at me as if it were all my fault.
Do you have people in your life who blame you for things that are out of your control? Do they pull the “victim card”, blaming you, society or the world at large?
Well, Ester Hicks succinctly discusses this conundrum of people who are a little (or a lot) out of alignment and calls them "pinched off from Source". In other words they are unplugged from God.
People tuned into their Higher Power don't need to put others down, yell, shame, complain, judge or gossip. They know better.
When you are aligned with source, God or whatever you choose to call it, you feel nothing but a connection with all things. You don't feel the need to throw anyone under the bus. When on the right tracks, you uplift, empower, enrich, empathize, console and nurture.
Remember, when you have one finger pointing at someone else, three fingers are pointing back at you. Go ahead. Try it. It’s always best in most situations to put down the magnifying glass and pick up the mirror.
When you feel the joy of living, you know it inside. When you are feeling anything but good (God) it's time to get your train back on the tracks and find a way to fill yourself up spiritually, so the nastiness doesn't contaminate you and those around you.
When clients, friends or family are being anything but kind, I say to myself, “they are unplugged”, and remind myself to never take anything personally. Ultimately I know that hurt people, hurt people. Let’s be good to one another.
