Sometimes in my life I have so much to do that I make the mistake of trying to focus on everything at the same time. Of course, at the end of the day, I just end up feeling tired or bored. How often do we not make this mistake of trying to create a structure and order to our minds and our life and expect to do everything at once? When I have a particular project in mind, I like to have order, but when I am in a hurry this mistake always comes back and bites me in the backside.
Surely the intelligent thing to do is to concentrate on the things that we can have a positive effect on, but sometimes our patience is tested. What we actually need to do is to put things to one side for a while and then, when the time is right, the solution or a key will come, quite unexpectedly, which will help us resolve the question in hand.
In the last few days, I have realised that I unwittingly have been about to make the same old mistake. Why? Because sometimes I find myself in a situation where I have a lot to do, but limited time to do it. Personally, I believe that everything has the right time and place, which I have touched upon many times before. Unfortunately, old mediums like me do not like to waste time, so old mediums like me can also be impatient, which can create stress. I laughed at myself yesterday when I realised I was going back into an old way of doing things, instead of focusing on the things I can change.

At the moment I am going to step back a little bit and just enjoy summer. There are a lot of things I would like to do, but how easy it is to fall back into old ways of doing things. The interesting thing is, when I realise that I am falling into an old trap, nowadays I can recognise it much quicker. When I cannot change in the immediate, I try to deal with what I can resolve, then I have much more energy and feel so much more relaxed.
It must be so funny for the guardians of the spirit world to watch us sometimes. I am thinking they are saying to one another: “There they go, falling into the same old trap again. When will they ever learn? One of them is soon going to call us asking for help: Why is this happening to me!?”
The more in touch you are with yourself, you will be able to pick up the answer quicker, whether something is right or wrong for you. Having an idea or a thought is like planting a seed, it needs water and sun to germinate. If it is planted in fertile ground within our mind, quite unexpectedly the flower will show its bud and begin to blossom. When I write that I hear Ascala laughing and saying: “Oh, ye of little faith!” He makes me laugh at myself and think: Maybe I could have gone a little slower? Then I would have had more time to relax.
