I like to think of myself as a pretty patient person. I began practicing meditation when my children were small and would often burst into the room saying “muuuuum”. I think this strengthened my persistence muscle.
However when it comes to achieving my goals I notice I can become like a petulant child who wants to stamp her foot because its just not happening fast enough.
Over the past few days I have been observing this way of being in myself and coming back to that place of surrender. Knowing I continue to take every step I can towards my goals and then surrendering to the timing and the magic of the universe.
A beautiful example of this came from nature. Nature is such an awesome reminder of the way things truly are.
As a family we are big snow sports fans and yes our season and mountains in Australia are more condensed compared to the rest of the world however we do make the most of it.
Both of my sons and the rest of our snow lover friends are eagerly awaiting the beginning of our season. Even though our official season opened a few weeks ago, the rain had washed away what little base we had.
I watch the preparation and the action steps both of my sons are taking waiting, showing patient persistence for the heavens to open and send those magical white flakes down to earth.
This morning I opened my emails and received the above picture, care of Perisher Resort. The universe has shown us the magic. We have received 15cm in the last 24 hours. Our resorts have gone from nothing to skiable runs in a short space of time.
This is how our goals also manifest. By patient persistence, continuing to take the action, the universe will create the magic and you can go from zero ( no evidence of achieving your goal) to hero ( your goal manifests) over night. This is the exhilarating part – the magic of the universe.
So my advise today is keep patiently persisting, take all the steps you can and expect the magic to show up.
