Impatiens (Bach Flower Remedy) is one of the 38 Bach Flower Remedies.
Bach flower remedies are selected based on the emotions a person is experiencing at the particular point in time at which he or she uses the remedies.
Impatiens may be appropriate when some or all of the following characteristics apply:
- frustration and nervous irritation when progress is not considered fast enough
- quick-thinking impatiens types are often content to work alone unhindered by the percieved slowness of others; they don't feel the need to control others
Impatiens is the Bach flower remedy whose indications are most clearly implied by its name. We can all be impatient at some time or another but sometimes this characteristic can dominate a personality, even if only for a short period of time. In this case the impatiens Bach flower remedy may help to re-establishing balance.
Many books about Bach Flower Remedies suggest that most people can benefit from them at some times and/or during certain types of circumstances. The main question at any particular time is which of the remedies is appropriate for the specific person (or animal) at that time, remembering that the choice need not be of just one remedy. Although it is possible to use only one remedy at a time, a small group of remedies is often selected and used together.
