This Week’s Flower Essence: Patience

Our flower essence of the week is the Patience blend. It seems especially appropriate as we launch into a new year and endeavor, perhaps, to make certain healthy changes in our life (not an easy thing to do). Cultivating patience when we are feeling angry or upset, tense or exhausted, or just generally overwhelmed requires real discrimination, restraint, and a certain level of integrity. 

When tied up in a traffic jam instead of cursing our luck (or other drivers), we can choose to take a few deep breaths, play some calming music, or even make up a funny story about what is causing the delay. When we feel our patience eroding, we can consciously practice letting go of control, being a little more flexible, less in a rush, and a bit more resilient to the stresses that threaten us. 

Setting a clear intention of patience helps us begin to adopt a soft, gentle, flowing approach to life through non-resistance. Our Patience blend comes in a handy one ounce spray bottle for quick access while at work, driving, parenting, or other potentially challenging activities.
