|Impatiens Flower Essence:Positive
Patience, acceptance; flowing with the pace of life and others.
Patterns of imbalance:
Impatience, irritation, tension, intolerance.
The souls who need Impatiens flower essence find it difficult to be within the flow of time;
their tendency is to rush ahead of experience. In doing so, they deny themselves full immersion in life, even
though they may appear very busy and engaged.
In particular, these individuals miss the more gentle and subtle exchanges which can occur with others, or with
the world around them. Their overabundance of fiery force flares up easily into irritation, impatience, intolerance,
and anger. Although quite mentally agile and extremely capable, the great inner tension and excitability of
such souls leads to various physical disease states or premature aging due to 'burnout'.
The Impatiens flower essence type needs to experience not only the powerful flaming of life, but also its gentle
flowering. Through the Impatiens flower essence, the soul learns to still the attention and deepen the breathing
so that the inner Self becomes more receptive to the unfolding moment. The precious flower of life is then experienced
in all of its fleeting fragility and delicate beauty.
