Ever hate to wait? Well why wait when you can meditate?
Many of us hate to wait. It happens all the time. In the line at the grocery store, at the airport or in the doctor’s office. When we find ourselves feeling frustrated, we can be mindful and then balance. This is the perfect opportunity to take some time for ourselves to breathe deep and relax.
Instead of being irritated over having to wait, use the moments as a blessing to meditate or pray. If we focus on our bodies we can become present in the now. Where does the irritation lie in our bodies? As we breathe deeply we can feel if there are sensations in the neck, head or back. As we breathe more we can feel this subtle restrictive sensation more and, as we do, it dissolves.
When we can bring our awareness to the body and the now, we can release the resistance that had been making us hating to wait in the first place. When we instead breathe in fully we can feel the tension melt away. That tension is there regardless, and if not released, we carry it around with us all day.
So use waiting as a gift from the universe to take time to be mindful of body and breath, and to free emotions and thought. The hating to wait feeling is actually a divine sign for us to relax and focus on our breath and being. In this way we can touch the beauty of the light and love that is always around us at all times everywhere.
So whether in traffic or waiting for friends, instead of focusing on something is wrong with this situation, we can take the moment for what it really is: An opportunity for us to be present in the moment and truly breath in and be conscious of the divine being that is all around and within us.
