How is Patience Like a Microwave?
"A man who is a master of patience is master of everything else." ~George Savile
Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer
This year’s end is upon us in just 6 weeks and it’s a perfect time to review the goals you’ve set for yourself, as well as your big “to do” list as the holidays arrive. It’s a great time to get more clarity about what you still want to achieve, to celebrate your accomplishments so far and, most importantly, to stay patient in the pursuit of them.
Often, we are so focused on the goals that we want to achieve and the things we need to complete, that we begin to count the days in front of us. We think a lot about how much we want them RIGHT NOW. Sometimes we think that we can only feel relaxed and have peace when we are finished achieving it all. Sometimes we forget “the power of now.” We may begin to feel differently than we would like, as we move toward the end of the year in a race within ourselves to make it all happen. However, that very wise and aware being that you are can take charge again. That magnificent brilliant you can remind yourself that what you really need, in order to speed things up, is the patience to slow yourself down.
Patience is a funny thing.
Patience works differently than you might imagine. It is very powerful. Think of patience like a microwave. It actually speeds up the process, while you participate in a much more joyful, calm way. The more patient you are, the faster you achieve your goals. When you've truly committed to remaining patient, it keeps everything you’re doing flowing smoothly and effortlessly. You feel so much more “on-track” with getting things done. And, most importantly, patience allows you to enjoy the present moment, the one that you create from. The only one that matters!
How can you feel more patience?
Patience comes from the calm that we have deep within. It is the result of a calm mindset. And that calm mindset is what you must have to get you where you want to go quickly. You’ll feel so good creating what you want. How wonderful and amazing is that!
So, here is a scientifically proven method that you can use to bring you back to calm and help you maintain patience during this most wonderful time of the year. You can use it with the intent of reaching all goals... big and small. And, as you keep your patience, you are sure to enjoy the holiday season. You’ll be sure to have more fun!
It's simple... feel more love to get to calm. Then, calm will always take you to patience.
In studies done by The HeartMath Institute, it has been proven that your heart has an electromagnetic field around it that is 5000x more powerful than the electromagnetic field around your brain. In other words, the point is to feel more and think less for more success.
Try this exercise to activate the 40,000 most powerful cells in your body.
1. Close your eyes and put your hand over your heart to feel the warmth of your body. This can have an immediate calming effect.
2. As you do this, imagine that you are breathing love into your heart. On each in-breath, breathe in self-love and say "I love myself."
3. When you exhale, just imagine letting go of anything that does not feel good.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 again. This time, when you get to step 3, on the exhale, send love out all around you. Feel yourself surrounded by love and send it out, sharing it with the world. Do this as long as necessary to feel more peace and calm.
As you feel your breath going into and out of your heart at your own pace, it will be easier to practice the joy of patience.
Let’s enjoy what we really want. Let’s experience this most beautiful time of the year with joy, love, and peace in our hearts. Let’s enjoy a calm mindset, getting everything done with patience, in an easy and effortless manner, and faster than we ever imagined possible.
Have an absolutely magical day full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, fun!
