Even though a woman might want to open her belly and check on her baby every few days (or even hours), she knows that that’s not how it works. There is a specific time frame that the baby needs to be in the womb growing and nurturing before it’s able to survive and materialize into what it’s supposed to be – a baby. She knows she has to wait approximately 9 months for everything to mature properly and if something happens that it’s sooner, sometimes extreme measures have to be taken to make sure the baby does well.
Why am I going on and on about babies? Because it’s the perfect example of the Law of Gestation.
Remember that we go through a few simple steps.
1) We ask for something. That’s easy and it’s why there is so much contrast in our life – we can see what we don’t want and then ask for what we do want.
2) The Universe delivers it. It’s immediately manifested. The Universe doesn’t know if it’s a fleeting thought or not. The Universe is just there to provide us with what we ask for.
3) We have to ALLOW it into our life – that, then, is materialization – when we can actually see and touch whatever it is we asked for. This is the most difficult part for us because we have evolved into creatures that want instant gratification.
There are two particular aspects of the Universal Laws that serve to protect us.
1) We don’t have enough wisdom so fortunately we don’t have the power to materialize everything we say immediately even if the Universe has manifested it – it has not been brought into our lives. A good example of this is this: A mother is outside and sees her sons playing way up in the top branches of a tree. The mother panics and screams for the kids to get down but this is what she says – “Get down from there or you’ll fall and break your neck”. Aren’t we glad at that point that we can’t immediately materialize what we say or think. If we had such power and ability the boys would fall and break their necks.
2) The Law of Gestation. It’s funny how we can accept this law in nature and other parts of life but not with ourselves. You wouldn’t plant a rose seed or an acorn and then the next day dig it up to see how it was doing or be upset that it hadn’t poked above the surface yet. You know that there is a specific time that the seed has to be buried and go through the various stages before this tiny little round object becomes a beautiful flowering plant.
