This is a sign I keep on the counter when my dishwasher is on. The dishwasher is so quiet, we have often opened it when it is in mid cycle. I can never seem to get it back on track when this happens so I made a sign to let everyone know when "not to open." I am becoming more comfortable with my own inner cycles and the times when I should not open. Sometimes ideas and insights are meant to share and sometimes they are not. When I share my inner promptings without discretion, I can actually feel the energy of the insight dissipate into thin air. And I can never seem to get that creative inkling back. Just like the bubbles we used to blow into the summer evenings, they disappear like magic right before my eyes. I wonder how many ideas lost their chance for expression through my compulsive need to share and connect. Ideas and projects need time to incubate and grow. They need nurturing and support. When the time is right, their birth will be that much more complete and rewarding. Now if I can only keep my mouth shut. Practice, practice, practice.
