“Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.”
We live in a word that moves faster and faster every day… a world that praises instant success and excels in making any success look as if it happened overnight because of the sensation value. It can be very discouraging when we look at this and then look at our own life and circumstances.
The 7 of Pentacles celebrates slowing down. To truly master anything, time is required in spades… so start digging where you stand. Dig with focused effort and perseverance. Don’t look around at what others have already achieved. Keep your mind on the dirt and your own dream.
Your dream, until you realise it, will go through many stages of growth, just like a plant… So where are you today? Take stock of where you are and what you have, as well as what still needs to come together for your dream to be made manifest. Vow to be faithful to the process of manifestation.
Affirmation: “I give myself the gift of perseverance.”

Dear Mother-Father God (or whichever higher power you acknowledge), thank you for bringing together all the elements for my goal to be achieved. Grant me wisdom to patiently nurture that which is now fragile or not yet ripe. So mote it be! (listen to prayer on Instagram)
