Early on, you discover that so much of life is about waiting. Waiting for your next birthday, for that new bike on Christmas morning. You count the days until you get your driver license. Impatiently, you wait for your big dream to manifest or for great love to arrive.
It happens in less dramatic ways -- waiting for your spouse to change, your roses to bloom, your sweet tooth to have less power over you.
Some waiting is interspersed with guilt - waiting for your youngest to finally move out; selfishly hoping for no snow this winter.
This week, many are on pins and needles waiting for election results.
Waiting is a skill, something children learn to develop, often kicking and screaming. Even as adults, waiting is challenging to say the least.
But this valuable ability can end up putting your life on hold to some degree. Waiting for something or someone to either defeat or restore you can keep you immobilized.
Most of waiting is another word for having expectations. Expecting the next moment to make you happy, provide a missing piece, or prove your life was worthwhile.
Expectations are traps, haunting you in ways you may not realize. You are caught in needing something external to validate you. If you happen to receive an expectation, it offers temporary gratification until the next one arrives. Usually pretty quickly.
Energetically, expectations can actually be why you are not manifesting what you want. The vibration of neediness keeps things out of reach. They show you that you are coming from a fear-based attachment rather than a pure-based want.
The gift from noticing expectations is discovering the part of you that believes you cannot have, or don’t deserve. A way to expose your denial.
Sadly, expectations, AKA needing things to be a certain way, have you not appreciate what the universe is presenting. Like turning your nose up when receiving a dozen red roses when your favorite color is purple.
Right now, there is a planetary struggle taking place as we try to help the world get to its next evolutionary level. Observing this from a more expansive vantage point, you will see the bigger picture bending toward love.
But does knowing that make it easier to wait?
They key is doing your part, going where your higher consciousness leads you, letting go of expectations and trusting the process.
And, of course, waiting.
Patience, patience, patience.
