There are many opinions around you. Some are helpful but others are distracting you from your truth. Although it can be helpful to hear the thoughts of others, when it comes down to it, you will have to come to your own decision. Do you know how unique you are? How your path is your path to be chosen, lived and created – only by you? Someone else cannot become the source of your decision-making power without negative repercussions for both of you in the long run.
You have become swept up in thinking things through. You have been thinking about which way to go with a matter of importance and you have got a bit stuck in the logic of the decision-making process. Sometimes we have to accept that any path is a path forward and if it is not the best path, we can change our approach later on if needed. If we are slightly off-base with a decision, life will often shift and move to guide us back on track. We don’t have to be perfect. In fact, there is rarely ever a perfect choice to be made – just some choices that feel more heart honoring than others. Sometimes we can only really know in hindsight if we made the best choice possible in that moment. At the time of decision-making, we only really have our internal wisdom to rely upon. And that is all we need.
There is no need to punish or traumatize yourself with possible choices. Just making a choice will set things in motion. The best way to catalyze the situation you are in and bring about healing change, stimulate your creative juices and find a more inspired, energized and enjoyable approach to your life, is to just make a choice based on what you feel right now. Not based on anyone else’s feelings. Just yours. So ask yourself – what do I feel right now? And go from there.
If you cannot relate to the need to make a choice between two or more clear alternatives, know this, you are at a crossroads in your journey and the choices you make at this time – even simply choosing to do things a little differently, without much drama associated with the decision – are powerful triggers for some great magic to enter your life.
Take a different approach to something. Be open to that which makes you uncomfortable but could be exciting and interesting. Even small adventures will yield big rewards right now. It matters less that you do the most wonderful thing ever (too much pressure!) and more that you simply take action from your heart. Open up to the creative magic of life and don’t worry about how it is all going to work out. The bigger creative flow of life is sorting out all the details and you are not immune to that plan. In fact you are a natural part of it! So just spend some time with your own feelings and know that all is going to work out perfectly.
Healing process ::
Close your eyes and relax, rest your open palms facing upwards on your legs. Imagine that you have a ball of light in each hand. If you find it hard to visualize or feel, you may prefer to draw this process in your journal instead.
Focus on one ball of light first. What color or colors does it feel like? What feelings, words, symbols or qualities does it have? How heavy or light is it? How substantial? What do you feel about it? Do you like it?
Turn your attention to the second ball of light. Repeat the investigation or exploration that you did for the first.
When you are ready, choose one. There is no wrong or right choice, just whatever captures your attention, energy or heart most at this moment. The other may be there waiting for you later on, if it needs be – or it might be easily released, if that most serves your life’s path and creative journey.
You may like to take that chosen ball of light and imagine sending it our into the universe with love. If you have drawn it, you might like to add words, feelings or colors.
When you have finished, simply say, “My choices flow easily from my heart and I tread my path with certainty and grace, always within the merciful protection of unconditional love. So be it.”
When you are ready, simply open your eyes and you have completed your healing process.
