The Law of Gender states that in all creation there is someone to plant the seed and someone to grow it. For an idea to grow there must be an idea planter and idea grower. The Law of Gestation states that every seed has an incubation period. So, once a seed is planted and the grower starts to grow it, there is a set time before it will bear fruit. This is probably the most difficult of all the laws because it requires patience.
Many years ago, when our children were still young, Brian and I just could not imagine making the decision of handing our boys over to the care of anyone. We couldn’t imagine finding anyone who would love them and care for them as we did. So, we chose to wait until our gut told us when the time was right for our boys to move into the next stage of their lives.
When I first wrote this chapter in May of 2019, I had planted the idea into my husband’s mind that the timing for the move was nearing. He was not ready to grow that idea, but the seed was planted. He was seeking to feel when the time was right.
I received the answer a few of months later, but Brian had not. Brian is the best father I have ever known and I am not saying that just because he is the father of my children. He loves his children so very much in a very special kind of unconditional love that I have not seen, ever. I couldn’t ask for a better father for my children. Some of his hesitation was because he loves the joy our sons bring into our daily lives. I get that because it’s true! However, I have experience with a brother who has special needs and lived with my parents into his mid-40s.
When my brother finally made the choice to move out on his own, he was like an 16-year-old trying to find his way in the world. He could have learned all those skills so much earlier and would have been able to do it in a safe environment with the support he needed. My parents didn’t push him to take advantage of the services available to him. This experience taught me there would come a time when I would be a hinderance to my children’s progression. Not only that, I was ready to start the next phase of my life with my husband. My sons were in their late 20’s and waiting any longer would only be a detriment to their further growth and to our marriage. This gestation period was really starting to cause a strain because I was ready to move forward and my patience was wearing thin.
The gestation period, as I waited for Brian to come to the same realization as me, was over a year and half.
In November 2020, we both agreed it was time and we started the process to making it happen. Brian and I, together.
I encourage you to plant your seeds for whatever you are wanting in life and be confident in its fruition. “How long must you wait? You must wait as long as it takes. It if came sooner than the Law dictates, then it wouldn’t be what you want. A mother-to-be may be anxious to have the baby, but she must be patient. She doesn’t want the embryo, she wants the baby” (Hidden Treasures, Leslie Householder, Pg 159).
I knew in my soul that forcing this transition to happen sooner than it was supposed to could have ruined my marriage and created havoc on my children’s lives. So, please, be patient. Wait for as long as needed so you get the baby, not the embryo.
