What Do You Do When You Don’t Know What To Do?
We all get here at some point. I wrote a blog for my subscribers yesterday about hitting a plateau and wondering what to do next. The message I gave them was not to push. Don’t struggle against it because once we start struggling, we tend to create more reasons to struggle. That’s not helpful!
So if we’re not pushing, we’re not struggling, and we’re not going to identify as stuck, what are we going to do? We’re going to rest. The reason we rest and not try so hard, is because in the intuitive realm, struggle blocks our intuition.
One example of this that happens frequently is when a loved one passes and intuitive family members want to try to communicate with them. The sheer desire to communicate with a transitioned loved one, and the struggle the desire creates, blocks the communication. The fastest, simplest way to communicate with transitioned loved ones or hear our intuition, is to stop the struggle.
I’ve experienced this feeling myself. My last job was a sort of plateau, where I didn’t really know what I was doing. I took a job to take a job. It was a good job and I enjoyed it. But it wasn’t fulfilling to me. It wasn’t what I wanted to be doing, but I wasn’t completely clear on what I wanted yet either. So I stayed in that job for 2-years.
Then clarity came. I remember because it was December of 2018. I remember the realization that I had that I was meant to help people intuitively in some way. I wasn’t yet ready to be an author or spiritual teacher, although that has always been the end goal. But I hadn’t figured out how to get there yet and I didn’t feel like just jumping in was an option. That explains the last 2-years of my life if you’ve been following my business.
I decided to quit in January of 2019. I gave them 2 or 3 weeks’ notice. I didn’t burn the bridge. I left them on very good terms, knowing that my position was essentially waiting for me if I decided to go back. I’ve thought about it a handful of times over the last few years. But I haven’t, I’m stubborn like that.
So where did my clarity come from?
Not pushing. I just allowed my life to go along as it was until I was hit with that clarity. I didn’t identify as stuck or lost. I just allowed it to be. That’s the trick. It’s okay that it took 2-years. It’s okay if it takes you 2 or 3 or 4 years too. It’s not about time. We’re always in a hurry, but there’s no place to get to. It’s human to want to charge forward, but there’s nothing to charge at. Just make a choice and go with it.
Be careful about being unhappy where you are. It doesn’t mean that everyday is a celebration, although it can be, it just means that we aren’t miserable along the way. We don’t have to argue with where we are all the time. We can just be okay right now, just for the sake of being okay right now. It’s a choice. The more comfortable we can get with where we are, the quicker the inspiration will come. I know, it’s backwards, but it’s true. Be happy where you are right now because it’s pretty much a given that it’s going to change.
What do you do when you don’t know what to do?
The same thing you’ve been doing but without the struggle, without the pushing, and without the questioning. The answer will come to you one day, when you’re not looking and when you don’t expect it. It’ll just show up and you’ll wonder how you didn’t see it all that time. But it’ll be there. Don’t count days, or months, or even years. Just allow time to flow and enjoy what you have and where you are. I promise, it will change, it always does.
Love to all.
