We all have those times when we feel out of sorts, like things aren’t quite right and we feel lost in some sort of perpetual fog we can’t quite find our way out of. We automatically tend to look for what is “wrong” so we can “fix” what we think the “problem” is. What we’re often missing is that sometimes, there’s really nothing to be “fixed” at all.
In fact, sometimes we’re just asking the wrong question. Instead of asking “How do I fix this?” or “What is wrong?” the question we really should be asking is how we can return ourselves to balance – to that state of wholeness where we are well again and all is right with the world. Try asking:
What is missing from my life in order for me to return to wholeness again?
Because it’s sometimes the case that we simply need to find a way to return to that state of things we were in previously where we felt good and balanced and whole, but maybe we lost it somewhere along the way without meaning to. Or maybe something shifted and we didn’t quite realize the effect it had on us at the time. Or maybe it’s time for us to take a step in a new direction and bring new energy into our lives. Rather than going back to where we were, it might just be time to move forward.
Either way, the answer is always about returning to WHO WE ARE – to health, wealth, happiness, and pure abundance – even if that means taking steps forward to become MORE of who we are and less of what we were.
A simple shift in perspective can be all we need sometimes because when we are in a negative frame of mind, we are not viewing things from the place that would benefit us the most at the time. When we are in a place that’s not healthy for us, there’s usually a much better place we can reside mentally and emotionally, even if we don’t see it at the time.
And it’s often that subtle shift in our perception that can allow us to go from a negative state of mind to a positive one very quickly. It’s also that same shift in perception that will allow us to see our circumstances from a much better view so we can get unstuck and move forward again to create new pathways and find new opportunities we might have been missing all along.
So, the next time you feel stuck and in a rut, try asking Spirit to show you what you’re missing and how you can move forward. Ask how you can return to that state of clarity that lets you fully experience yourself and your gifts and return to expressing them to the world in the greatest capacity possible. You just might be surprised at the answer.
