'Manifestation will come as soon as your frequency matches your desires" - Abraham Hicks.
I wish I could have said it better...but this is exactly on point for me. It's what my clients and I talk about all of the time - of putting ideas in crock pots so they can cook properly, and not rushing the cooking process. They will be ready when WE are fully.
We work hard at the doing, at the creating. We keep stirring the pot, adding more salt, messing with the damn recipe.
But that's not what will make it great.
What will make us GREAT is raising our vibration, becoming more and more expansive so that that things we put out into the universe to create will come to us faster and easier.
It's like putting the crockpot on high instead of warm (or worse, forgetting to plug it in, or worser -continuously lifting the lid so all the heat escapes so it never really cooks right).
Put it in the crockpot and leave it alone.
Set the table, get dressed, light the candles, have a snack so you don't starve, pour a glass and hang out.
Spend 95% of your energy on the energy work.
The rest is plating up your masterpieces.
