Patience: “You must develop patience in all areas of your life.”
“Patience does not mean that you give up and do nothing. On the contrary, you need to be aware of several aspects of the circumstance that you are facing. Patience requires you to stop pushing, rushing and creating potentially explosive situations. Instead it asks you to see the bigger picture and become aware of the ingredients that might be missing.
If you are impatient with a particular person, instead give them space.
Avoid jumping to conclusions and making up dramatic stories about a person or a situation without being aware of all the details. You have an opportunity to let go of judgment. Always look for the truth of the situation, not what someone is saying or doing, but why?
Patience can also be connected to a health condition you are recovering from, a new diet or an exercise program you have embarked on, or a new course of study you may have begun.”
“Focus on one thing at a time.
Say to yourself: ‘I accept what is without judgment. I am willing to practice patience and presence.’
Breathe slowly and deeply while focusing on what is. Be aware of the air hitting your nostrils and lungs. Soften and relax. Be the explorer of the present moment. Discover what is magical, beautiful and serene in this moment. If you are feeling unwell or stressed, just allow yourself to explore these feelings with the awareness that they will pass.”*

Have patience, Dear One, for you are almost there. It may seem like things are not moving as quickly as you would like. You may feel that you have put in so much effort for very little return. But things are almost there. You are exactly where you need to be. Have faith in the process. Breathe.
You may be feeling restless, wondering why you feel like you are struggling to manifest your desires. It is simply a matter of timing, things are not quite in alignment yet but they are coming together nicely.
Sometimes the best thing you can do is take a break from your focused intention and action and do something that brings you joy and relaxation instead. Give up the work and take a day to do something different. Exercise is a great way to mix up the energy. Or a little trip out of town if you can swing it. Do something fun, playful and light. Get outside if you can. Walk on the beach, hike up a mountain or sit with your back against a big, beautiful tree. Create, craft, cook, paint whatever brings you bliss and erases the worry and doubt you may be feeling. Yoga is magical medicine for that restless feeling.
Know that things are happening, even if it is behind the scenes. And soon you will realize that this was just a little bump along the way. Have patience.
