What can we learn with Patience

patienceI have an affirmation programmed in my phone that I receive twice a day – “The more I allow myself to receive the better I am able to help others.”

This couldn’t be truer as I surrender to life and open myself up to receiving that which the universe wishes to offer.

Here I am once again in awe of life.  This year has so far proven itself as a roller coaster of emotions and experiences.  I have felt rejected, blissful, confused, inspired, lost and content.

I am grateful for summer time as it persuades me to slow down and feel the feelings I have suppressed allowing my emotions to come to the surface and flow out of me like a flower in full bloom as I become consciously aware of so many aspects of myself.  The shadow me and the God me, the suppressed emotions Kamy and the authentic Kamy.

Patience, as I have explained to many of my followers, is where we give ourselves the time to learn.  It is with patience that I allow myself to reflect on my experiences and not re-act upon them.

A woman in her late 80’s told me last summer, “Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears!”  I loved this quote she shared with me and found it to be very true.

With every experience I am drawn to go within, to ask myself what has this experience brought me; to discover the beauty and acceptance within myself and others.  As I go within and commune with my God self, I realize that every choice I make and every experience I have is OK!  I am able to release the need to criticize myself as I release the thoughts that I have in some way done something wrong.

Louise Hay would say, “If you made a choice that didn’t work, just make another one.”  Why is it that we feel we need to beat ourselves up over every decision/choice we make?  It is my belief that we don’t make mistakes but experiences.

Call to action: Allow yourself some time before re-acting to something. Give it space and invite patience in to see what the learning is for you and perhaps even the other.
