Being Late

Do you, or someone you know, have issues with being on time? There seems to be an energetic or spiritual component to this aspect of personality. According to author Phil Fox Rose, self-seeking is when you choose your own gain over the interests of others. Self-seeking behavior intends to maximize the productivity or convenience of your own time at the expense of other people’s schedules.            

Self-centeredness, on the other hand, means you are so focused on yourself and your concerns that you don’t even realize you’re harming others. Self-centered behavior does not notice people are bothered, or might not consider that your lateness has an impact on their serenity or productivity.

One of Rose’s blog readers pointed out that we all have grown up with over-stimulating crisis movies, which have imprinted the need for drama. This could lead to creating one crisis after another in the race against time to get things done! (tee tee) Does this explain an overall energy that most have been programmed with? Is chronic lateness part of some type of thrill that helps some people know they’re alive? Is it rude, and does being late do harm? Questions are building, which indicates a whisper is forthcoming on the subject of being late:


Being late can inform the individual that there are many layers to unfold, some going back to childhood. Not feeling seen as a child could create a hidden need for attention, or some form of resistance to time management. The subconscious may be driving the hidden perplexities of such a behavior pattern. On the surface, it could appear that the person being late has made a conscious choice to exhibit rude behavior, which may not be true.

A bad relationship with time can be karmic by nature. Once the pattern has manifested, it can be incredibly challenging to break away from. What lives in the hidden realms of human consciousness is like the vehicle you fail to see in your rear-view mirror while driving. Breaking the karmic pattern requires gleaning the lesson from the behavior, which can be delivered in the form of a harsh response from others. Once the lesson is accepted, sacred ceremony is recommended to make declarations of freedom from the need for more lessons with time.

Failure to keep your word, in any form, is the inability to express love for yourself and others. Unreliability erodes trust and serves to harm relationships, especially the relationship with yourself. The physical incarnation is the agreement to experience the continuum offered by time within the constraint of space and matter. These are the dimensions that offer the most practical aspects of knowledge for the souls. The vibrations that emerge from movement through these dimensions create resonant frequencies that hold the light and love that lead to awakening the soul with upward movement into the higher self.

The limitations experienced with time can feed an urgency with the life process that illuminates wisdom. Creating strategies that address the issues relating to time can build a structure of stability. A true awakening can come from healthy relationships that include keeping your word, earning the trust of others, and avoiding any behavior that fails to express love. Free yourself from limiting behaviors with regard to time as you journey on the path to finding peace.
