Resting and Waiting

Waiting and Resting

The words waiting and resting can be used to label the same lack of activity, and yet there is a difference between the two. How we perceive them depends greatly on our state of mind, and the thoughts that we are applying.
Waiting usually suggests that physical activity has paused or stopped. 
Resting, on the other hand, is a time of renewal, when in the absence of physical demands, we are able to refresh our mental, emotional and spiritual selves. When we rest, our energies are renewed.
I am writing this in the northern hemisphere, as nature is drawing in as a response to the shorter days and colder nights.

      There are no new buds, no unfurling blossoms. Creatures are feeding on fruits and berries which appeared weeks ago and will not be replaced until after the new growth of next spring.
Despite this apparent inaction, this is not a season when nothing happens. The living layer of Mother Earth: the plants, insects and animals, are now shifting into a time of quieter, less visible behaviour. 
In some cases it would be fair to say that they are waiting for conditions to change again. Waiting for longer days of sunlight and the warmer temperatures that will accompany the light. 
Waiting is about the suspension of physical activity: sap will cease running in tree trunks,  roots will stop digging through the soil, and many animals will stop hunting. 
It is also true that nature is resting: there is cessation of movement which focuses on the restoration of energy. Hibernating animals are resting, the soil is resting as nutrients filter into it. Coniferous trees photosynthesize at reduced levels during winter, maintaining their structures while still resting during the long dark nights.
Humans are part of the web of physical life, and we are affected by the changes in physical conditions: the cold, the winds and rains, the darkness. Humans also have a second energy source: we are able to access cosmic energy even while our physical selves are not moving very much.
When we feel stuck, or when circumstances seem to be delaying our progress, we can shift ourselves from the waiting which might cause us to feel impatient or even angry. Without changing anything else, we can adjust our thinking to resting. 

Instead of sitting in a chair in a waiting room, anxious and irritated by delay, we can decide to use our time for rest and renewal. We can look out of the window and acknowledge the natural cycle of which we are a part. 
When we examine the truth of not moving, not progressing, not producing, we may recognize the opportunity to gather new energy and resources, to generate new ideas which can improve the journey forward when it recommences.
Rumi wrote: When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it. 


I have been practising Numerology since the 1980s, as well as accessing synchronicity through various systems which connect individual lives to Cosmic Wisdom.

October

    The store displays are already filling with the October accessories for Hallowe’en, and in some cases even with Christmas supplies. Getting caught up in the excitement and planning for these festivals can divert us from living each day to the fullest. It is not difficult to stay connected to the richness of the Here and Now when we put a plan in place: a daily meditation or mindfulness practice can keep us from being swept up in mindless activity.

Remember to Turn on the Light
Numerology is an ancient system which remains relevant and useful today. It provides an interpretation of the intentions that the immortal soul has carried into this Human experience.

A basic chart, drawn up quickly, can reveal four major Numbers which have a vital role in shaping experiences and how they impact the individual.
