Patience and Understanding Can't Co-Exist•
Posted on February 28 2019
January of this year, I signed up for a 1 on 1 coaching/transformation program to heal my inner child. I am currently about 1/3 of the way through and will be sharing more about this in the future, but today I want to focus on something that my Healer said. Something that has resonated very deeply with me.
During one of our sessions, we were talking about patience; the one thing it seems most of us need more of. Then it happened – the curveball shift. The one tidbit of information that has changed the way I look at things. It was at that point that she shared knowledge with me that would change both my life and my views.
She informed me that throughout the history and teachings of Indigenous language, there was never a word for patience. The reason is that patience isn’t something we should have to ever ask, or pray for. If we truly understand and respond from a place that reflects that, what do we need patience for? With understanding, there is no need for patience. Our understanding comes from a place of love, and true, unconditional love, doesn’t think twice about patience! It just lives unapologetically and flows freely.
The next time you find yourself frustrated with a person, a situation, or something that has you praying for patience, I urge you to shift that perspective. Look inside yourself and try to bring yourself back to a place of love. And in that place of love, you will find the understanding to get through whatever you face!
