When It's OK to Be Impatient


As a kid, it seemed impossible to have patience. Now, I’m no spring chicken, but I still find that to be the case. The longer I’ve been alive on this planet, the faster time seems to go. It wouldn’t matter so much if I was going to live forever.


But that’s just not the case. And that’s why each individual life is so precious and the time we have to create a fulfilling life is priceless. Accordingly, having patience isn’t always such a great thing.


Life is short.


We don’t know when it’s our time to leave the physical world. We don’t even how things may change in any given moment. So why waste our precious energy reliving the past? Why waste energy sitting around patiently for our dreams to manifest?


When it comes to manifesting, patience isn’t always the best virtue. Part of co-creating with the Universe requires active allowance. That’s completely different than having patience waiting around for something to happen.


When I feel out of alignment with my higher self, I take the time to evaluate my surroundings. Am I taking on too much? Do I feel resentful because I did not set boundaries with others?


Sometimes all it takes is doing activities that are healing, fun or even mindless. After all, when the mind is still, that’s when we are most able to receive inspiration from intuitive hits!


Other times, after assessing my situation, I realized it was time for a leap of faith. Yes, I'm talking specifically about the time I quit my job without a Plan B.


Active allowance is different from having patience.


When manifesting big changes, it’s important to actively allow the Universe to do its part in configuring what is not in your control. When you actively allow, you are being open to receive signs, symbols and synchronicities from the Universe to guide you towards the next steps.


Furthermore, by tapping into your intuition, you are better able to receive messages from the Universe when it comes time to take inspired action. Remember, inspired action is very different from doing unproductive “busy work.”

Busy work is for bees.


There’s a difference between doing “busy work” to figure out how to achieve your goals. That’s when we end up getting in the way of our own manifesting. Why not take a more direct path by allowing the Universe to guide you along the way?


When you detach from a particular outcome, you create space to receive guidance from the Universe. You also are better able to shift your focus from anxious thoughts to faith and hope. In turn, this creates space for positive energy flow as you align your energy to a higher vibration.


It’s important to differentiate between having patience and slowing down. When we slow down, we are able to reflect on what’s good in our life so that we can enjoy the present moment before it passes unnoticed.


Can’t find anything good to reflect upon? Remember, there’s a silver lining in every challenge. It’s just up to you to see it. With practice, we can train the mental mind to reframe challenges as opportunities for growth. In turn, we create space to live in alignment with our soul purpose.


Shift out of survival mentality.


It’s easy to forget that life will one day come to an end. It’s just as easy to keep focusing on the negative things that are happening. Heck, that’s how we are wired...to be in constant survival mode.


But we’ve evolved from the cave man age. Unless we are living in the wild, there isn’t a bear that’s going to pop out of the bushes chasing us. Yet, a nasty email can have the same stressful impact on our body.


When negative thinking becomes habitual, it can be hard to remember that there are other perspectives on any situation. The moment we open ourselves to see a different perspective, we can shift our energy.


Shifting our energy completely changes how we feel about what’s going on. In that moment, we take back the control of our power by not allowing our circumstances to dictate how we feel.


Once you empower yourself by making that conscious choice to reframe your perspective, take a deep breath. Remind yourself that your circumstances will eventually change and in time, it will be just a memory.


Take the time to consciously shift your focus away from yourself and the challenges you may be facing. This will allow you to redirect your energy to the hidden opportunities that the Universe has in store for you.


Notice hidden opportunities.


With all the noise out there in internet land, it’s getting difficult to notice hidden opportunities. Such opportunities can be in the form of discovering valuable insights, financial gains, connecting with helpful people, and so forth.


Many times, hidden opportunities increase our wealth. Wealth means different things to different people. For some, wealth means financial independence. For others, it means having a healthy family and lifestyle. Wealth means different things to different people.


There’s no right or wrong answer. It is faster to manifest wealth when you have clarity on what wealth means to you and why you want to achieve it.


Specifically, the fastest way to manifest any form of wealth is to be in alignment with the vibrational frequency of the Universe. When in alignment, you are better able to attract positive energy flow each day.


Good news: We can all align with the frequency of the Universe at anytime throughout our busy day.


Save yourself months, if not years, of spinning your wheels. Through simple holistic wealth strategies, you can manifest more positive energy flow…even if you only have minutes to spare.


A holistic approach can make all the difference in clearing stubborn blocks getting in the way of raising your frequency to attract wealth. It’s time to create more positive energy flow into your life.
