If you took a container filled with fresh, rich soil and placed it outside and then left it completely untended for months, when you went back to look at it, it would have a wild assortment of things growing in it. You would likely have lots of weeds, perhaps some grass, the odd wildflower, maybe even a sapling tree. It is unlikely that you would be completely happy with the results of what has grown in your planter because it had been left so undefined.
But let us suppose that you purposely planted an assortment of seeds that would produce your favourite flowers. You tended the planter, making sure it had the water and sun it needed. You might get the odd weed popping up, but because you know what you have planted, you can excitedly look forward to the plants beginning to grow and bloom.
Sometimes the planter might need tending. Other times it may need nothing other than time to allow your seeds to expand and grow. You know that growth happens behind the scenes (under the soil) before it pops into your physical awareness, so you patiently allow things to flow as is divinely perfect. You know you have done all you can do from your end, and you allow Source to do its part, as well.
This is an excellent example of co-creation. You set your clear intention, planted the seeds and through your efforts, along with the support of the sun and elements, you will get a much more satisfying result that matches what you desire. Do you see? Clear, consistent intention and effort allows the universe to respond in a clear, consistent way. It is simply up to you to decide what you wish to grow and experience. ~Archangel Gabriel
