We all experience dark days, I think the term “dark nights of the soul” describes it best. Those spaces in time filled with pain, challenge, heartbreak, grief, and fear. Periods in life when it feels almost impossible to find the light of possibility.
It’s during these days you may notice yourself constricting or closing off, your body and soul instinctively working to protect and conserve itself. These periods of time can be scary and overwhelming, even trick you into believing that you’re somehow failing and there’s something wrong with you. That you will never get to the other side.
The ability to be patient during dark nights of the soul is a vital component for growth and transformation. But, how do you have patience during a time when you want nothing more than time to move quickly?
The answer…Actively engage in the creation of patience.
Patience isn’t a passive activity, or something that just happens to you. Patience, like happiness, is an action that involves intention and choice. It is something that you must create while you live your dark night, knowing that expansion is up ahead. It’s active patience that allows the dark nights to be your greatest gift.
HOW DO YOU CREATE ACTIVE PATIENCE?
Active patience is a choice, a habit you create through repeated effort and intention.
It is an act of abundance and an empowered way to navigate through the discomfort of constriction. I encourage you, look within yourself and make the conscious choice to create patience when you encounter dark nights.
With love and joy,
