Day 24: Impatiens
Oracle Card for the Day: Abundantia ~ Prosperity // Oonagh ~ Easy Does It (but pulled my birthday tomorrow)
Mindful Moment: My last day of being 30!!! Big day! Form here on out I hope to always celebrate the day before my birthday (April 19th) in a state fo reflection and gratitude for the year that has passed. Namaste – from the light in me now honouring the light that shone brightly and grew in its radiance over the course of one year in the human experience.
I went into 30 heavily channeling masculine energy and thinking I was finally coming into my own as a fierce tigress in a world full of lions. I felt empowered, experimental, oddly secure yet totally directionless. Of all the traits that I listed, directionless ended up serving me best. I reached a new level of burnout after quitting my job and found myself unemployed, financially drained, unchosen in three romantic endeavours, and best friendless. And although I should have felt empty and alone, I realised no matter what my life looks like on paper, I will always just be me and that is enough. And so began my journey of everflux and self-discovery.
I learnt my heart has a voice and that it wants to be heard. I am committed to listening and doing as it wishes . . .
I danced home that evening from Marylebone and my heart clearly spoke to me: To dance is to play. To play is to honour my inner child. To honour that child is be in abundance. Money will follow but always continue to play. Synchronicity – I pulled Abundantia.
Meditation: Not documented but it happened.
Arrangement: I left the remedies in their beds and selectively moved someone into the two open loops.
The Pick: I caught a glimpse of one of the labels and I thought it read as Juniper which I knew was not a remedy. I was flooded with nostalgia from a school project I did when I was much younger and we got to do it on our favourite planet. I chose Jupiter because it started with a J and therefore I love it <3
Always honour your inner child . . .
The remedy was unbelievably difficult to open which is ironic since it turned out to be Impatiens, which looks like Impatience.

 Impatiens people are known for their quick-witt and ever buzzing state. They are exceptionally competent, they have quick learning curves and work ethic like no other. They tend to lack patience for others, hence the name, and struggle in leadership positions as they would prefer to just do it themselves at their own rapid pace. Often they assert themselves into positions of teaching or mentorship where they try to implement their methods of efficiency.
Due to the nature of their impatience they are not ones to hold grudges, but rather move-on. Sometimes they can appear clumsy as the speed at which they are doing is most important. Additionally their body feels like it can’t keep up with their mind which is already five steps ahead!
Nervous tendencies give way to an Impatiens person: nail biting, finger drumming, fidgeting, toe tapping etc. Other physical indicators include: nervous rashes (constant itching), indigestion and rushed eating.
I 100% have these symptoms. Last year I came into a chronically itchy scalp which lead to hair thinning. I also went through severe bouts of bloating, constipation, and rarely but sometimes diarrhoea. It was the most stressful year of my conscious life and my symptoms only subsided when I was at home, in my mum’s house, with no expectations. I am happy to report that coming into 31, I have nearly shaken all of these disturbances and back in my own independent London life.
