The little lamb had her head stuck through the red barn gate.
The grass on the other side of the fence looked greener than the dirt patch in her pen.
Little horns on the Jacob Lamb(a breed with horns) prevented her from pulling her head back through. Unable to free herself she bleated continuously.
Her mother responded to her every bleat with a long “Baaaaaah.”
I was staying with friends on their ranch when I was asked to help free her. I stroked the little lamb’s forehead and spoke in a soothing tone to keep her still as my friend worked to unwire the double gates.
When we try to push our way forward, leading with our heads, we often find ourselves blocked by spirit. If we do not recognize that Divine Timing is delaying us for a good reason, and our egos push to make something happen before it’s time, we may become hooked in an unhealthy way to a situation that requires our constant attention and energy to make it so.
As we relax in our lives and allow Divine Guidance to help us, we learn patience. We learn if we wait in faith, the gate will open effortlessly.
As the lamb relaxed my friend was able to unwire the gate and set it free. Joyfully it bounded back to its mother’s side.
In my life I have often found I could make something happen with a lot of focused attention, but it often was not the best that Spirit had for me. However when I have waited patiently and allowed it to happen, it comes out better than I had hoped. Working with Spirit, and Divine Timing, allows blessings to come to you, and the gates to open without effort. And what comes is often better than what we could have ever imagined.
If we follow our heads through life, making things happen from an ego state of being, we may find our little horns hooked.
If you are having a difficult time making something happen, relax and wait.
Take it easy. Be at peace now and wait for the gate to open.
When it swings wide before you step through with ease and grace into the life you have been waiting for.
Stay centered and learn to lead with your heart, not your horns!
In love and peace,
