The picture above is an amazingly beautiful amaryllis flower I have that blooms every year. Eventually, it will have 20 to 24 flowers like this in full bloom. If you look closely, you’ll see there are flowers at various stages of blooming – some wide open, some just beginning to open, and others not open at all. They all bloom in their own right, divine timing.
Someone once said, “There’s man’s time and there’s God’s time.” Man’s time is typically the forced time of trying to make things happen when WE want them to. God’s time is the natural unfolding of events happening when THEY are ready to happen. Understanding there is a natural timing to all things, and then allowing that and working with that, is a great skill and awareness to have, especially for Major Good Mojo.
The tomato plant goes from seed to gorgeous tomato OVER TIME. A baby is created and, over nine months, grows to readiness for birth. The tomato plant and baby are good examples because so much happens behind the scenes – under the earth and in the womb. It would be easy to assume nothing is happening since you can’t see it. However, you would be very mistaken (setting ultrasound and the enlarging mother’s belly aside, there is still a lot going on that is out of sight).
Then, BOOM!, in a relatively short instant the tomato plant breaks through the surface of the earth, and, BOOM! the baby is born. Both the baby and the tomato plant begin to very visibly grow and our minds are relieved because we can now see the progress and trust that all is OK. But it is still happening one step at a time. The baby grows into a man or woman over years! And the tomato takes months before it is ready to eat. These are natural processes of living organisms growing and transforming in the world, just as we are, and it doesn’t happen in a weekend.
Much of what we are exposed to completely dishonors the natural process of transformation, growth, and learning.
Many of us want our happiness, success, and wealth in an instant and are all too ready to believe the promises of someone saying they can give it to us. Many “Fast-Track to Success” seminars do a major disservice to those new on the path by setting them up for disappointment.
Let’s take the baby example. Here’s the seminar pitch you hear on the radio (be sure to read this in your best “announcer” voice): “Tired of waiting for babies to be born? Want the beauty and brilliance of a baby of your own without having to wait? Come to the “Your Baby Now” Seminar where you will learn how to create a real human baby in only 2 days! Yes, that’s right, from conception to delivery in just 2 days! This amazing miracle has been transforming the lives of thousands. Call now!” Of course this is ridiculous, but the example points to the absurdity of ignoring natural law. Your growth and expansion are no different.
Promises for amazing transformation are rampant, especially in key areas of life such as health, wealth, and relationships. The truth is YOU CAN transform yourself and any area of your life, and programs and products CAN and DO help you do this. At the right moment, the right program can bring on a catharsis, a breakthrough, or a significant insight. All of these contribute to your growth. However, the REALIZATION of most breakthroughs, as recognizable change on a day-to-day basis, happens over time, not over night. If change does manifest instantaneously after a breakthrough, you’ve likely been working on that area or issue prior to the workshop/seminar. If you haven’t been working on that breakthrough, then it’s likely you’ll be working on its manifestation and realization into your life AFTER the breakthrough. Either way, it didn’t miraculously fully manifest into your life in an instant.
Like the old saying goes: “It takes a lifetime to create an overnight success.” Ask any successful person in any arena. If you can get their true story rather than the nutshell or magical version, you’ll discover it took them years. And even if they did produce some amazing result in what appears to be a year or two, if you look closely, you’ll find that in the years before the crucial year or two, they were working toward that “magical” success in one way or another. The truth is, in ALL areas, it’s a process. It takes time! What we are talking about here is your personal process of evolution and growth as a human being. For Major Good Mojo, you are wise, you respect the natural process of life, and you take it one step at a time.
Your Major Good Mojo Assignment:
Take a moment to look in your life for places where you may be holding tight, resisting the bloom, and/or places where you are forcing the bloom, pushing for results, and trying to open too fast. Where can you trust and open a bit more? And where can you relax, back off a bit, and allow some space for grace? Make a note of your insights and let go and open in those areas you are holding back. Back-off and relax more in those areas you are pushing.
Next, take a moment to look and see what Spirit is calling forth in you, for you, in your life right now? Perhaps a whole new area, or perhaps a familiar area in a whole new way or at a whole new level. What is wanting to bloom in your life right now? Make a list. Then, with your list, ask each item “What is my next step?” Then take it!
Congratulations! You are one step closer to Embracing Your Blooming, Divine Right Timing, AND Major Good Mojo!
