Patience is a Virtue

Do you hate waiting for things? I’m referring to things like a job offer, a promotion, moving house or going on holiday. Or maybe it’s the smaller things that really try your patience like waiting for a bus, waiting in the traffic or waiting at the dentists.  Is there a difference in your patience? Do you have more patience for bigger events and less for the mundane things? Or is it the other way around?

What things do you do whilst you have to wait? What emotions are present when you are waiting? Frustration, anger, fear, guilt? Make a note of your feelings around these issues so that you can compare with how you feel after you have done some tapping on the issue.

So, as usual, write down your score on a scale of 0 -10 (where 10 is maximum impatience).

Tap on the Karate Chop whilst repeating three times:

  • Even though I hate waiting for things, I’m willing to accept myself anyway
  • Even though I get so frustrated and angry when I’m waiting, I’m open to accepting myself anyway
  • Even though I have no patience, I accept how I feel anyway

Eyebrow: I hate waiting
Side of Eye: It makes me angry and grumpy
Under Eye: It’s so frustrating waiting
Under Nose: I have no patience
Chin: I get so mad if I have to wait
Collarbone: It frustrates me waiting for things
Under Arm: I don’t have any patience
Top of Head: It feels like I’m wasting my life waiting

Eyebrow: I can’t sit still when I’m waiting
Side of Eye: I have to keep checking how much time has passed
Under Eye: and how much time is left to go
Under Nose: I find it so annoying
Chin: It makes me so mad
Collarbone: It really winds me up waiting
Under Arm: I find myself fidgeting and pacing back and forth
Top of Head: I have no patience and hate waiting

Eyebrow: I’m open to feeling different about waiting
Side of Eye: What if I could feel calmer about waiting
Under Eye: Maybe I can feel less frustrated
Under Nose: I’m open to having more patience
Chin: What if I could do something constructive when I have to wait
Collarbone: Maybe I won’t get angry and frustrated
Under Arm: What if I found it easier to wait
Top of Head: I’m open to letting it be easy to feel patient

Use your words where appropriate to really tune in to how you feel. Keep tapping until you no longer feel so impatient. I’d love to hear your feedback, so please leave a comment.

Keep tapping!
