Hi Happy Spirits,
This week I want to talk about what to do once you have identified what is keeping you stuck. Last week I wrote about Being Authentic: Telling your Truth and keeping it Real and I shared an experience that lead me to discover what it is that is holding me back.
Now the what can be different for every one and it is just fear and negative energy that manifests in your daily life and it’s job is to keep you small and safe. Problem being, small and safe doesn’t equal happy does it? I’m talking about shifting the negative thoughts, emotions and beliefs so that you can live from your happy place and chase your dreams, what ever they may be.
We all exhibit our ‘stuck-ness’ in different ways. Some examples of how it shows up in our lives are:
- Poor Health
- Bad or repetitive Relationships
- Feeling deep Anger/Sadness/Regret/Fear
- Building barriers and isolating yourself
- Feeling numb, helpless, unmotivated, tired, lethargic
- Falling into the same cycle again and again
- No self-esteem, confidence or self-love to make positive changes
- Working in a job that brings no joy
Regardless of how it turns up in your life, nothing will change unless you decide that enough is enough and you are willing to see and do things differently. When you are willing to take action, small steps at a time you will see major changes in your life – inside and out.
So, have a think about where you feel stuck and have a read of the below. I promise if you just pick one of the below and start to incorporate the advice and affirmations into your life, you will experiences change and shift.
CHANGE YOU MIND
Life kicks off as soon as you decide to change your mind. By that I mean, what you focus on is what you get. You change your mind everyday, in what you have for lunch, what book you are going to read, the dress that looked fab last week…looks awful today! Change your mind, listen to the chatterbox, interrupt when you hear its silly opinion and change it to a positive one.
Change your mind affirmation: Today I choose to see things differently and invite positive energy and new opportunities into my life
GET IT OUT
Do what you can to get what is keeping you stuck and fearful out by expressing it in a way that resonates with you. Maybe you enjoy painting or writing, if so start doing it every time the familiar feeling of stuck comes up. If you aren’t a writer or painter then use a worry box and write a couple of sentences and hand it over to the universe. If you need to express your fears emotionally, cry openly for as long as you need to. Try this exercise: When you feel tears coming up imagine a big pink bubble over your head, filling up with your tears. When you have finished crying see the pink bubble being taken by your angels and turned into love. When you see your grief transmuted into love, have the bubble come back to you and find yourself in the middle of the bubble being cleansed by the love inside of it. Keep your bubble around you for as long as you want.
Get it out affirmation: I am able to express my fears and worries in a way that best helps me. I know that by releasing what keeps me stuck I am inviting love and joy into my life.
I’ve repeated this a lot on my blog, once you start the healing process you can’t just sit back and relax. You have to take action. The beauty of it is that once you start to shift the negative energy that is holding you back, you can invite more positive energy in which will give you the energy and drive to take action. Taking action doesn’t have to be a massive thing, often the action we are being guided to take is something as simple as updating our CV, having an honest conversation with a loved one, making time for more self care or paying attention to the food and toxins you are feeding your body, mind and spirit with. Every step in your journey is guided, you just need to pay attention…which leads me to the next tip…
Take action affirmation: I expect miracles when I take positive action in my life.
Meditate. Be still. Just 5 minutes a day. Breathe in 188.8.131.52 breathe out 184.108.40.206. When you quiet your mind, even for a minute or so, you allow yourself to open up and hear the guidance of your helpers and higher self. Regular meditation will fast track your healing process and keep you focused and on purpose. Experiment with different mediation techniques until you find one that you resonate with. Belinda Davidsons Chakra Cleanse Meditation changed my life so if you are new to mediation then I can recommend as a game changer.
Be quiet affirmation: I happily make time to meditate daily because I know that it helps me to heal quickly.
MEET YOUR MIRROR
Louise Hay is famous for her mirror talk techniques. It is the beginning of self-love and it is powerful, even if it makes you cringe at first. Every time you catch your reflection in the mirror, stop and say (out loud or in your head) I Love You. Thats it. The first few times may make you blush with embarrassment but keep going. Soon enough the embarrassment will make way for sadness and then maybe regret…you will realise how you have neglected yourself all these years, and do you know why these emotions are coming up? Because you are starting to love yourself. Its beautiful.
Meet your mirror affirmation: I love you.
GET ENERGY MOVING
If you feel like you need help kicking off the healing process, do your research and make an appointment with an energy healer. There are so many different practices out there, some like Reiki that you can do in the comfort of your own home! But you might be interested in experiencing how the needles in acupuncture work on the bodies energy meridians, or maybe the physical touch of massage is what you need to imagine the negative energy leaving your body. Tapping or EFT may resonate with you. Exercise is a great way to get energy moving in your body, yoga is a great example and has been used for thousands of years to promote union between the body, mind and spirit. Heck, just put on your shoes and walk in nature, silently asking mother nature to help you cleanse any negative energy.
Get energy moving affirmation: I am willing to release the negative energy that holds me back by finding practices that resonate with me. I know that I am safe while I experience different ways to heal.
