There is great wisdom in staying still if you do not know how to proceed in your life. You may need more information to know how to move forward in a way that truly matches who you are and what you wish to experience. Biding your time is allowing yourself to can get more clarity, either through self examination or through the flow bringing you more details that help you know the right way to proceed.
By staying still until you are sure, you are being non-reactive. You are staying in a space of balance and wisdom, and trusting in your own ability to make wise decisions for yourself when the time is right. It is giving yourself the opportunity to navigate through your heart and what the energies support for you, rather than just making decisions simply to appease the part of you that likes to control things.
Wisdom is waiting for the right wave of energy that will seamlessly take you where you wish to go, that not only feels right but is created from a space of alignment, surrender, faith, flow, and trust. It is loving yourself enough to be the expert on you, and feeling into what is a match to your soul's desires, as the empowered co-creator of your life expression. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
