Huh? Wha? (dazed and confused)
Feel like you're on the treadmill of life, running on empty?
Feel like your light has been dimmed under the weight of decisions that perhaps weren't aligned with your integrity?
Does each day feel the same?
Or perhaps you don't even realize because you've never stopped to wonder why you're bored or unfulfilled?
When life loses its flavour, it might be time to take a pause and bring closer awareness into your life. Life is meant to be examined and reflected upon - it's part of the growing process.
Remember, you are important and needed!
Below are 5 questions to ask yourself if you feel as though you're sleepwalking through life.
NUMBER 1: "Am I Being Honest With Myself?"
It can be hard to look yourself in the mirror and be honest about how you're feeling. But suppression can lead to depression. Vulnerability with yourself opens the gate to truth and authentic power. You can't hide from the truth, and with it you create a platform to make changes and clearer decisions. Be bold and ask yourself that question.
NUMBER 2: "What Really Feeds My Spirit Joy?"
Do you remember what lights you up? What are the experiences, activities, interests, memories, topics that get the motor running and creative juices flowing? Some simple investigation can sometimes shed light on where you should be directing your energy for optimal wellbeing and vitality.
I'm a big fan of focusing on your BEING state as your foundation. Let that lead the DOING. Start with your vibration - feel good first - and then focus on what you need to do to get to where you wanna go.
NUMBER 3: "What Am I Unwilling To See Differently?"
What do you need to let go of? Who do you need to forgive? What narratives are running your life? I like these lines from Byron Katie - "reality is a lot kinder than the stories we tell about it," and "the nightmare becomes laughter once it's understood." Meaning, a lot of the time our minds are our own worst enemies!
With a simple shift in perception - a whole world of suffering can be undone. You then invite clarity to the party and into the present. Now, you can begin the process of bringing more awareness into your life.
NUMBER 4: "What Do I Need To Accept About Who I Am?"
Again, I come back to the truth. Deep down you know who you are. Deep down you know the light that exists within you. It may feel like it's buried right now, but it's there.
Beyond the excuses of:
My life will change if I bring forth my truth.
There will be family drama.
I'm too old to start anew.
I'm too this that or the other....pick an excuse. Excuse BEGONE!
There are 7 plus billion people on this Earth. Each with their own unique light and flavour of love. It yearns to be expressed. Remember it, own it, share it, live it:) You are so needed to shine your light.
NUMBER 5: "What Do I Want My Legacy To Be?"
This may sound like a BIG one to ask. But seriously...are you selling yourself short in this life? Have you numbed out your potential and capacity and given up, so to speak.
Do you give a shit?
I mean if you're happy, you're happy - you're a hero to me if that's the case. But in this one shot at life (this time around, lol), why wouldn't you want to feel great in mind, body and spirit. Share the love and music in your heart.
How do you want to remembered? As someone who settled well below what they were capable of? Or someone that led with their heart and did things that elevated their spirit and had an impact on people?
On a final note...change is a process and it can be hard. I know. It took me over 10 years to move through some pretty deep stuff. We all have challenges, but it's these hurdles that are designed to bring life into focus and move beyond confusion.
They are designed to bring you home to your truth.
