Making Peace with Our Choices
This is the lesson, the message that has been coming up for me lately and I want to share it with you.
Sometimes we make decisions about things we know we need to do, like me letting go of all of the coaching and readings I was offering to focus on writing, but we have a hard time getting behind those decisions fully. We still kind of hang on to the side of the pool. We don’t dive in fully. That’s me right now.
I’m not the only one that does this. Many people, especially entrepreneurs, make decisions within their business that are “right” for them. They are listening to their guidance, they know what needs to be done, but then they struggle after making the choice. Instead of looking inside of themselves and trying to figure out why that choice didn’t work, they just go back to an old way of doing things or they give up completely.
The part they missed was that they didn’t get okay with their own choice. The choice was still causing them conflict, even after they had made the choice. Because it was still causing them conflict, they weren’t able to get behind it and focus on it fully and so it didn’t work so well. The conflict is just a distraction that keeps us from putting our full energy into what we want to do.
This is part of that process of alignment that we talk about in spiritual circles. It’s the idea of lining up with what we want so that we can allow it in and in many respects, free ourselves. We free ourselves from having to figure out how things are going to work. We free ourselves from needing to figure out what the solution is very often. Louise Hay always said, “I don’t fix my problems, I fix my thinking and the problems fix themselves.”. That’s it in a nutshell right there. Get the brain to cooperate and stop telling stories, fully line up with what is wanted and let go of the rest.
I’ve been all tied up for a long time. I have a lot of third-dimensional thinking in my head that keeps me trapped and trying the same solutions over again but no longer getting the same results. The old ways don’t work anymore. So if I’m not okay with my decisions, I set myself up for a rather dramatic fall off the side of the cliff or I just drown in the proverbial pool. Neither of those is really much help to anyone, especially me.
So how do we get okay with our decisions?
At this stage, for me, it’s where I choose to put my attention and my focus. The more I focus on what I want to do and achieve, the less time I spend worrying about what might go wrong or questioning my choices. I can use the focus on my work to allow me to find the peace I need to find.
If you’re busy trying to get okay with your own choices, there are two aspects to it. The first is to do what I have done and just move forward without too much thought of “what if?”. The second is to trust yourself and know that things will work out as they are meant to. It’s possible to be okay. It’s not only possible, it’s a given. Being okay is nothing more than a matter of deciding that we are okay. There is nothing else to do. Being okay requires us to fix nothing, solve nothing, and change nothing. It’s just a choice that we can make regardless of our circumstances.
When we make choices about which direction to go in, we have to actually go in that direction. The problem we all have is that we go back and forth between both paths. We keep peaking back to see what’s happening on the other path because we’re unsure if we made the right choice. That’s the part that needs to stop. Quit peaking back over. Stop checking. Just move down the path and be confident about it. It will all work out.
Love to all.
