Soul Story – Learning Soul Patience – Surviving an Illness Taught Me Patience
Two years ago, my life turned upside down. Seriously ill, forced to slow down and to silence the chatter in my mind, I had no choice but to wait patiently for the healing. During that time, I remember not being able to walk, drive, or do anything normal in my life which had been true before I became ill. I spent many days in bed not knowing what the outcome would be or how I would climb the mountain placed in front of me.
During that time, I nurtured my soul, I took time to just be me without all the obligations and the worries of life. The hardest part of it all, as a perpetual overachiever, was to be patient, to wait for the day I could begin to feel alive again. Determined to put my life back together and to live from my heart, I began repairing my soul. Although it was challenging to mend my heart and soul, reflecting on that time, I now know that was the easy part.
Gratitude Brings Patience
Now healed and in the normal routines of life again, I find myself going back to that feeling of being impatient with the process of things. I catch myself sometimes wanting to rush things in life. When I feel myself going back to that old habit, I remind myself of what it was like to be so ill that I did not have a choice of what my day would be like. Then, I feel the gratitude for just breathing air or feeling the sunshine.
Divine Timing is Key
Learning to be patient is a lesson that every soul must learn, for when there is patience there is connection to the spiritual realm and the divine source of love and light. Patience teaches your soul to listen and watch for the signs, to enjoy every moment as if it was the only one, and to trust that everything has divine timing.
Patience During Soul Awakening
Within this time on earth, when your soul may be awakening to your soul path, allow patience to be part of your journey. Every day you are learning how to shine your light a little brighter and how to know what feels right for your soul and what must fade away. Your soul needs to feel in each moment and needs to know that it is okay to take time to evolve and grow.
Patience is your friend soul. Wait patiently and see where your soul flows. Waiting is the fun part, as it is the part where your soul laughs, loves, and moves to the rhythm of the universe. With patience, waiting becomes enjoying and enjoying becomes loving. Your soul learns how to be free to love.
