Keep Your Cool Year Round with the Power of Patience

Posted by Chaya | Posted on 07-25-2013

There’s no substitute for being patient and keeping your cool in the middle of a topsy-turvy world. You can remain Patience - boy and dog 2013peaceful in the middle of challenging situations, and be a calming influence on everyone around you. It sure makes dealing with the many demands in life a whole lot easier!

To find out if patience is a lost art in your world, ask yourself these questions:

  • Does your blood pressure shoot off the charts every time you find yourself stuck in traffic that’s moving about as fast as you could walk?
  • Do you have big emotional swings? Going back and forth between hot and bothered, and cold and withdrawn?
  • Are your relationships like this: irritation building, tempers flying, saying things that cause pain and can’t be taken back? Then a lot of time spent trying to patch things up and rebuild trust?
  • Are you a door-slammer, a yeller, one of those people who always seems to be storming out of the room when things don’t go your way?
  • Do you tap your fingers (and your feet!) in frustration when the people ahead of you in line are taking their sweet time, and ignoring the fact that you have more important things you’ve got to get to?
  • Do you feel guilty about how judgmental you REALLY feel about other people much of the time?
  • Are you spread so thin, that you don’t have an ounce of patience with your kids anymore?


If a puppy can learn patience, surely you can too!

When we got Coconut at 8 weeks old, she had what we saw as an ‘eating disorder’, meaning, whatever she saw, she ate: paper, socks, mulch, rocks…if it was on the ground it was in her mouth and down her throat.

And when we gave her actual food, she snorted and inhaled it in the blink of an eye, and then had hiccups and indigestion. She had no patience!

It turns out there are a lot of cool dog toys that make them work hard for their food. They have to toss the toy, or roll it, or pry it open to get their food, and even then it’s only a little at a time.

One of our favorites was a bottle you put the food in, with a rope at the opening. She would have to stand on the rope and push the bottle back and forth to make a piece of kibble fall out. Sometimes a meal would take 15 minutes.

But she learned it – now she eats normally, and leaves the mulch for the plants and the socks for our feet. So yes, you too, like Coconut, can develop the Power of Patience. Maybe you just need a food toy.

Equanimity here you come! The Power of Patience is a frequency all around you – yes, even in your body.

When you’re connected to the Power of Patience, you will:

  • Feel calm and centered while you’re waiting in slow traffic. You’ve learned…stressing over it doesn’t speed things up.
  • Stay so even-tempered that people just love being around you. You calm THEM down without even trying.
  • Have time to enjoy the good stuff in your relationships, because you are no longer pouring your energy down the rat hole of petty fights.
  • Revel in your ability to keep your cool no matter what’s happening around you. How strong and capable you’ll feel!
  • Peacefully wait your turn in the check-out line. The folks ahead of you need a little nurturing too.
  • Feel free of judgment as it melts into appreciation and acceptance.
  • Keep your cool with your kids, regardless of how much they try to test you.


2 ways to steep yourself in the Power of Patience:
#1: Tired of feeling tied up in knots over the circumstances around you? Next time you notice that you are ready to bite someone’s head off over nothing, sing this affirmation to yourself 7 times:

“I am patient, loving and even-tempered.”

Then let yourself get nice and peaceful and go on with your life in loving way.

#2: Keep a bottle of Patience Vibrancy Essence at your fingertips this week. Every time you start to get riled up over the “small stuff”, whip out your bottle and take 7 drops. Then let your angst transform into emotional ease.
