Meditation doesn’t create patience, it fosters letting go of impatience. I’ve heard many people who are very active, comment that they feel impatient, fidgety and bored during meditation. If this is true for you, I encourage you to give it a try, starting out with a 5 minute meditation and gradually building yourself up. The practice of meditation helps the busy “monkey mind” to slow down and become present. This is difficult for some people, because they’re either in “review” of what was; or in anticipation of what will be. It’s helpful to acknowledge your incoming thoughts, but not hanging onto them…..just let them pass by, and become more like an observer.
When I lead guided meditation I begin by giving participants a chance to unwind and shake out their physical tension….and slowly allow them to feel more grounded. One of the reasons I love leading guided meditations, is to inspire your imagination to find the answers to your questions and bring you more clarity and peace.
What you’ll notice when you meditate more often, is that it quiets down anxiety and lets go of impatient thoughts. Meditation cultivates a calm and clear mind. You will connect with your spiritual source, and feel more centered, balanced and peaceful.
