We all have experiences in our lives that dramatically shift our path and enrich our Life as we understand it. There are those people who touch us in a way that change us forever and events that wake us up to a new connection with ourselves.
“When I feel impatient - it is because I have a powerful desire - that I haven’t come into alignment with yet.” ~Abraham/Hicks
Impatience. I know the feeling. In fact, impatience has become a driving force & a weighted anchor in my Life. Feeling impatient can be nerve wracking, frustrating, & annoying.
When I feel impatient, I hold my Breath. Impatience is where my “mistrust of Life” lives. When I experience the feeling of impatience it is because I am unsatisfied with some aspect of my Life in the moment.
I need to get beyond what’s limiting me. And the more I need to “get there” the more impatient I feel. The more hurried I get, the more behind I become.
My feeling of impatience surfaces in a response to my ego. I “need” something I don’t have yet. Whatever I want is not coming to me fast enough, in the way I want it to, or in a format I can recognize.
Louise Hay tells us “that everything happens in the perfect time/space sequence.” When I resist this idea, I project my focus into the future. I desperately want what’s out there to be here now. Maybe I’m just not ready to experience that yet…
Pay attention the next time you notice you are feeling impatient. What are you feeling impatient about? What message could this feeling be offering you?
Could it be a clue to some unrest that lies within you at the moment? Could you make a decision to “let go of needing” whatever that is? Give yourself permission to be patient with yourself and the situation.
What is one situation in your Life where you felt impatient and later recognized what that impatience was showing you?

“Everlasting happiness is based on a basic Trust that your Life is not happening to you; it is happening for you.” ~ Dr. Robert Holden
How very simple Life might be if we could trust that everything really does happen for our highest & greatest good. When we deem what is happening as positive or pleasant, it is easy to believe this quote from Dr. Robert Holden.
But what about when our lives seem to be catapulting out of control? Or when the other shoe has definitely dropped and there seems to be no light at the end of our tunnel?
How could these seemingly negative or challenging situations be to our benefit?
All of us experience Life. And Life is comprised of events, situations, relationships, & circumstances. How we respond to our Life creates the quality of our experience.
Take a moment to conduct a quick review of your Life. Focus on remembering those big things, those monumental shifts in your journey. What do you notice being the end result of the upheaval, trauma, or illness? Where has this experience taken you?
Again the quality of our experience rests in our thoughts & the choices we make. If we are stuck in looking outside ourselves for validation, love or success, the world’s offering will always fall short.
If we look for someone or something to blame for our unhappiness, we will continue to attract more evidence to justify why we are so unhappy. And in the meantime, we are incapable of seeing any of the gifts or support that is being presented to us.
Living from a victim consciousness fuels the belief that we’ve been singled out to suffer. Life is unfair and we are being punished.
When we come from a place of gratitude we experience a Life of trust. We slow down our focus to the present where we can recognize ways we are indeed, being taken care of.
We live from a firm belief in the reliability, the strength, & the truth of Life to care for us. We experience faith & confidence in whatever is happening to offer us an opportunity to see, to choose & to grow.
