Do you find yourself feeling impatient a lot of the time? Feeling impatient can be more than just unpleasant; it can affect your choices, decisions, the actions you take, your relationships and communication.
It can have a serious knock-on effect on all areas of your life, from your health to your finances. However, knowing that you need to be more patient doesn’t help you to be more patient. Impatience is not a conscious choice, it’s a physiological state.
The reason you feel the feeling of impatience is because your organs are producing the chemicals that cause that sensation that your conscious mind recognizes as impatience.
Impatience, like all negative emotions, is a fight-freeze-or-flight state. While it may not be as intense as that of anger or sorrow, it is a level of the emergency stress state known as fight-or-flight. In the same way your organs produce cortisol, adrenaline, and other stress chemicals when you are in danger, they produce them to a lesser degree when you are feeling impatient.
Your body goes into a milder form of fight-or-flight, but it’s still fight or flight. This means that your cognitive thinking is affected in addition to the rest of your system. During fight or flight, the prefrontal cortex of your brain reduces activity –lowering your ability to think clearly, solve problems, see opportunities, and communicate effectively.
How to Free Yourself From Impatience
While you are feeling impatient, you are at a disadvantage emotionally, mentally and physically. However, since the condition is physiological rather than mental, it is very difficult to stop the process using the conscious mind. The way to free yourself from impatience is to change the original cause of the impatience.
Changing the original record that is supporting the pattern of impatience will mean you will naturally and automatically no longer go into that state — because the structure that supported it will no longer be there.
Since every problem we experience is rooted in a record in the subconscious, we need to go to that record and change it in order to experience a change in the problem. For more information on how these records are created and how they affect our daily lives, read: The REAL Cause of All Your Problems.
Take a moment to think about the last time you felt impatient. Remember what happened, and notice how you feel. Notice what the feeling feels like, where in your body you feel it, and how strong it is.
Then, use the FasterEFT technique to clear that feeling and flip the memory. Next, think back to your earliest experience impatience. It may not be your earliest experience, but the earliest one you actually remember at the moment. Go to the feeling you recognize as similar to the one you feel when you feel impatient in your current life.
Take a moment to notice everything about that memory — see what you saw, hear what you heard, feel what you felt. Then, using FasterEFT, tap out all of the details of that memory until it completely flips. To find out more about how and why we flip memories in FasterEFT read: Why do We Flip Memories in FasterEFT. It is essential that you keep repeating the process until all feelings of impatience have gone, and any memories have flipped.
From now on, whenever you feel yourself starting to get impatient — whenever you begin to feel those familiar sensations — use the FasterEFT technique right then, in the moment to clear the feelings and any thoughts and memories that may come with them. If there are other people around, or you can’t tap physically for some other reason, use Mental Tappinginstead.
