At my “day” job, there is a co-worker (one of my bosses, actually), who is fond of telling me to “trust the process” when I’m in the middle of a petulant tantrum of injustice.
This phrase has been on my mind lately, not only because he’s correct in his advice, but because when we recall how we all set our own plans in motion, devised our own blueprints, gathered with our Team and came up with this particular life’s path, the “process” is exactly what we are immersed in, daily.
When I’m feeling at my lowest (recent global news has not been helping), I try to rest my mind and recall that I made these choices. I intentionally placed my soul in this body, right here…… the only question then becomes, why?
And that, is our message. We need only wait, trusting our earlier selves, our spirit-selves, to know what and when would be the most perfect way for us to learn and grow.
It’s about Time.
As we’ve always been told, patience is a virtue. Well, I’ve bristled at and struggled with this forEVER. Turns out, the virtuous part is not necessarily valid, but the patience aspect, that certainly is.
To worry and fret and whine and bitch gets us nowhere but unhappy. Waiting, however, and viewing our blessings, acknowledging our gifts, this helps to ease the passage of time, just long enough for us to look back, glancing over our shoulders to the recent past, and seeing the “why” as well as the “when” as we notice patterns and reasons.
To trust that we’ve originally laid things out for our highest and best possible good is a waiting game. It can be trying and annoying as fuck, but it’s a Universal Truth. Time, truly, will tell.
It will tell us that we have chosen well. It will tell us the process is a good one. It can also tell us that if those selections aren’t going in a direction we now like, we can change them.
And in perfect validation, here is our draw.
“Making a Choice ~ 30
You are required to come to a decision now.
You’re faced with a dilemma or a fork in the road and must make a conscious choice regarding the next right action.
Whatever that choice is, you must take responsibility for it – yet you needn’t be afraid. You may not have all the answers right now, because the way ahead can’t be known until you have embarked and traveled a few steps.
Trust your intuition. Ask for a sign from the spirit world and you will be led to the right path.
If you remain conscious and aware, your selection will be the right one at this time. Life is always about learning.
Success lies in choosing consciously, guided by your Inner Voice and heeding the messages that the Universe sends you.”

Autumnal Equinox has come and gone, the Full Moon is just ending, evenings are chilly, the sun has moved, it’s most definitely a new season. I am embarrassing the changes, and hoping that you are, too.
It’s a process, but I’m trusting in it.
