Patience

They say, Patience is a Virtue. It is a virtue that is increasingly being forgotten in this world. When you look at job postings, they all emphasize that the job, the company is fast paced and by implication, don’t apply if you cannot keep up. Yet, I never see a job description for a company that operates at a sensible pace and that you will not be worn out and frazzled at the end of the day.

Newspapers are getting thinner, and with less sections. News that once took days to be gathered, reported on, printed, and distributed can now be seen live on TV. If a news program takes less than a few minutes to report on a topic, it is ignored and gone. There is no patience for a more in-depth analysis. If there is no analysis, we do not have the full picture, we do not have the information we require to be able to develop our own opinions. 

We are no longer informed and we no longer have balance in the opinions and statements we make because we have not slowed down enough to give ourselves the time, we need to make them.

Our lack of patience extends to just about everything else we encounter. The person at the cashier at the gas station. There is only one cashier because it is assumed that transaction will be completed quickly. If transactions are completed quickly, only one cashier will be employed. So, when a person is having a problem with the passcode on their credit card, a line up quickly forms. Frustration mounts.

All of a sudden everyone involved is annoyed and some are becoming aggressive. Our egoic mind that loves to dwell on problems, errors, frustrations and anger sweeps into action to magnify and amplify what it perceives to be wrong.

Take a moment to diffuse what is happening inside of you and look at life through the moment. Be in the moment. Enjoy the things around you. The sun is out and the weather is mild and nice for the time of year. A lot of effort has gone to getting you where you are today, waiting to be served at the gas station. Breakfast, fresh clothes, you arrived at the gas station free form accident and your car is running well.

There is a lot for you to be pleased about, happy even. The moment when the sun warms you, is a wonderful experience to be cherished and thankful for. Take a moment to thank your angels and guides for being with you and brining you to this moment so you cane experience all that is good.

Be patient with the person at the cashier having problems with their passcode. In the past, that has been you and may yet be again sometime in the future. Of course, your egoic mind says it will not be because you have your pass codes sensibly stored… bit perhaps in the future you may forget this and still have problems.

Use Reiki to help you disengage the egoic mind that is behind so much instability, fear, worry, and doubt. Take some time at the start of each day to separate yourself from that part of you that is annoyed the coffee maker is not brewing as fast as it did yesterday. Separate yourself from the fear, worry, and doubt that you have for the day ahead. 

Breath deeply, calm yourself you have not even left the house yet and you are worried about what you will say at work or what will be said to you. This will energize you. The egoic mind not only worries about things it, and you cannot change it saps your energy and reduces your ability to be in the moment. It deprives you of seeing, experiencing and appreciating all that is good and rich and enjoyable around you.

As you experience this change in you, appreciate all that is available to you, just “smell the roses.”

At the end of the day, take time to release everything that has happened to you today. Most important disengage from the egoic mind. The day is past, you cannot change it, stopping the egoic mind form churning, on and on about what happened will not change anything, just, deplete you. Release everything and replace it with peace and quiet. If you are attuned, the Reiki Energy symbol Chu Kho Rei will add energy and dynamism to the release. Draw it on the palm of your hand or with your finger in the air in front of you. Let it help you be patient with yourself and the people, things, and events around you.

Lastly, before you go to sleep, think of patience and releasing everything that drains your energy. Let the universe know that you are OK, and that you are grateful for Reiki and that it is the universal life energy; it is the universe in the simplest and most elemental form. If you are attuned to Reiki, you will already be aware of this, if you are not yet attuned, now is the time to book a Reiki Session. It may not be in person because of the COVID pandemic, but a remote Reiki session is just as valuable. Just as effective. Embrace Reiki.
