The Fast

  • Baha’is abstain from food and drink between sunrise and sunset for 19 days. While this abstention from food and drink is a test of one’s will and discipline, the Fast is not just about abstaining from food. The Fast is, primarily, a spiritual practice.

CALMING Positive Affirmations for Patience

January 24, 2024, in Videos > Guided exercise, by

The third video in Day by Day’s “Shaping my Day” affirmation series assists us with practising patience! Day by Day is an initiative from some of the Baha’i Blog team that offers meditations and affirmations to connect with your spiritual self. We hope that repeating the positive affirmations shared in this video give you a boost this week!

In the Baha’i Writings, patience is frequently praised, and in fact in the Kitab-i-Aqdas, Baha’u’llah says that “God, verily, loveth those women and men who show forth patience.” At another time Abdu’l-Baha writes:

“Be thou a mountain of quiescence, a sign of meekness, a sea of patience, a light of love, a standard of utter separation (from all else save God), so that thou mayest become everlasting in the Kingdom of God.”

The affirmations that we are gently and lovingly guided to repeat in this video are:

  • I’m going to see what happens if I don’t give up.
  • Everything worth doing needs time and perseverance.
  • Some of the best moments in life happen when I’m waiting.
  • Where there is love, I can always make time.
  • I am gentle with myself when things don’t go to plan.
  • There is more to look forward to than I can possibly imagine.
  • Even if the path doesn’t look how I thought, it’s going to be OK in the end.
  • I shape what I can, and adapt as I need to.
  • I am patient and filled with love.
