Patience and Right Timing

The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.

~ Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy

If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that I am a big fan of trusting in two things: Universal Wisdom and Right Timing.

You might wonder what that has to do with patience? Everything, my friends, everything!

Why? Well, when we are asking for a sign, when we’re newly on our path, when we’re in the early stages of love, a new diet, a fledgling business or a fresh story idea we are usually good with waiting, and things unfolding in a gradual or haphazard manner. We most often have a sense of support too, and that loved-up and cosy feeling of being listened to by the Universe, God, our Guides, Angels or whomever else we feel is out there for us.

But what happens when the newness wears off?

This is usually where we start to falter.

When things are new, or the search hasn’t even really begun yet, we run on excitement, hope, anticipation and adrenalin.

But when we are well into things, or what we want hasn’t shown up yet, or we’re staring up at the bigness of the project we have just undertaken, we can wonder if we are EVER going to achieve the thing we desire. We become impatient.

Doubt creeps in. Fear too. And once you’ve cracked the door open to doubt and fear, all those lousy opportunistic emotions and limiting beliefs from our past start tapping us on the shoulder: defeat, failure, not good enough, not smart enough, not pretty enough, not worthy enough, too old, too fat, too late…

All things take time.  And I have seen too many people walk away from the thing that was actually working, just because it wasn’t unfolding within the time-frame they’d set for it.

Oh, we say to ourselves.  Love is NEVER coming.

Oh, this business is NEVER going to make money.

I’ll NEVER get this book published.

Or whatever other sad story you tell yourself…

And so you stop what you’re doing.  You give up.  You go home.

But what makes you so wise that you can suddenly know the workings of the Universe?

What makes you think that you can have a plan better than Divine Timing?

It’s a bit like being three months pregnant and ready to have that baby RIGHT NOW, because the nursery is painted, the freezer is full of casseroles and you have a few weeks leave up your sleeve.  Come on, baby, you think.  I’m ready!  Let’s do it!!! Only problem is, babies take longer to make than three months.

If I have any advice for you, it’s this:

❤ Relax and enjoy the journey! When we are patient, we perfect our craft.  We grow, and learn and develop all manner of new talents and insights. We gain mastery. It’s never just about the destination – and it’s always about the becoming…

❤ Trust that Universal Wisdom has a much better plan than anything you could come up with on your own, and all you need to do is keep putting one foot in front of the other, living with an open heart and an open mind.

❤ Know that things have a wonderful way of working out with Right Timing. And that timing is usually not YOUR timing.  If it hasn’t shown up yet, if it’s taking too long, there’s a reason for that. You just can’t see that from where you’re standing, and you might be closer than you think.

You ARE supported and well-loved, and there IS a magic and a wisdom to the way things unfold for us.

Your job is to be happy, to follow your heart, to live with gratitude and compassion and to be open to opportunities and miracles. You’re not in this alone, so stop acting like it and start trusting! ❤

  1. Thanks for a lovely confirmation of how I’m feeling at the moment. So close to the pot of gold I can feel it, just one foot in front of the other, happy, relaxed and enjoying. Old energy out new energy flowing in, just how you said 🙂

    So love reading your inspiring, uplifting posts everyday, yeah I know I’ve told you that before…just saying!

    Love and hugs

  3. Great post. Nicole & beautiful meditation <3

    How do you recognize a sign from the universe to follow whats been presented because it is part of your hearts desire over the universe sending you a sign to test your dedication to your current plan or path?

  4. Hi Nicole, thanks for today’s blog. I’m heaps more enthusiastic about my future after seeing you. I’m trying to be patient but I’m still having a moment or two sometimes. Hearing what you have to say each day plants me back into the ground again. I’ve never been so grounded and content I can even feel the quiet peace starting to wash over me. I love all your blogs, cannot wait to read your books or screenplays. Yey I love today. Happy happy Friday xx mwah xx

  5. oh, Nicole…thank you so much…the guided meditation is so deep and moving and wonderful…thank you so much. I had been reading, creating, reflecting and sitting for the past few hours…and then your post/meditation arrived…. it pulls those all together so beautifully… I deeply appreciate your insights and words…

  6. I agree with Julie. When we look back, we can see how and why things worked out the way that they did. I am also guilty of being impatient, but it’s good to remind yourself to have faith. Great post, Nicole.

    Btw, I always love your images! That stuffed bear on the subway platform? So perfect! I just want to cuddle it!

  7. This is very nicely expressed and could apply to me at any stage of my life because I’m naturally very impatient, but it’s especially helpful right now. What you say is absolutely right, having to wait can be really useful. While I’m waiting for something to happen right now, I’ve been able to use the time for other things and to have a bit of a breather. I’m surprised to say this, but I’m glad of the enforced patience. I’m so used to having the pressure of endless deadlines when there’s not enough time to think everything through properly, that to have time to think calmly is very refreshing. Excellent post, and I’m looking forward to doing the meditation, which I’m saving up for bedtime. 🙂

  8. Nicole, I wholeheartedly agree with everything you say in this post, but sometimes being patient in ugly conditions is hard! Like, for example, my dad, he is in a heavy debt situation, and has been for 2 years now… he is a very huge believer in law of attraction and thinking positively, and has been taking action, but he’s beginning to think that all of it is just crap because his situation doesn’t seem to change! What to do in this situations of despair!?

  9. Nicole thank you for this. It is a beautiful reminder. I have had to learn the long way:) and am learning to trust and let go to divine timing.

    Blessings
    Joanna
