Impatiens: Bach Flower for patient relaxation
The world is spinning pretty fast these days, of that I am sure. It is hard not to get caught up in the spin and chaos and sometimes this can lead to the feeling that no matter how fast things occur, they aren't fast enough! So if you were the kind of kid that kept pressing and pressing that top until it just couldn't possibly keep up (I know this from experience!), then the Bach Flower essence Impatiens may be of help to you! As I look at my blog entry and comments from yesterday and my feelings about Haiti I realize I should consider my own advice and just sit back and "let be" a bit.
Impatiens is exactly as the name suggests, for people that are impatient. It is also for those that are easily irritated. It is helpful when you are wanting everything to happen instantly and you find yourself acting, speaking and moving quickly. When you are trying to pull the paper out of the laser printer because it is too slow, you stop the microwave before the 1 minute time is up because you can't wait that long, pop the toaster up rather than wait etc. etc. People that are prone to need Impatiens from time to time are usually capable and independent (whew, that makes me feel better!), but they prefer to work alone because they are easily frustrated by slower co-workers and time wasting. Hmm...
If I have described anyone besides myself, you might want to consider a couple of drops of Impatiens to help you relax, remain good-humored with others and cope calmly and diplomatically with irritating problems. If you find yourself with more bruises and injuries in an "accident prone" cycle, that can also be a clue. Impatiens can help you slow down in a fast paced world.
If you'd like more information on Impatiens or any other Bach flower essence check out my website www.pixiedusthealing.com or send me an email- now you know I check them constantly because I just can't stand to wait!!
And if you were thinking of buying that spinning top in the picture- slow down and read the reports- it's on a recall list due to lead paint- sorry Pooh Bear...
