How To Get Unstuck
Be easy about it. Don’t rush into things. Savor them more. In all that you do, let your dominant intent be to find that which pleasures you as you imagine it. Let your desire for pleasure — your desire for feeling good — be your only guiding light. As you seek those thoughts that feel good, you will always be in vibrational harmony with the Energy that is your Source. And, under those conditions, only good can come to you; and only good can come from you.
We’re in the process of replacing our car. Looking ahead at the time, it was in our five-year plan to do so, and, well, that was seven years ago.
We’re not in Emergency Status, we’re just trying to do the responsible thing. We’ve been peeking at stickers and in windows for about a year, mostly on Sundays (wink). Lately we’ve actually test-driven different models. And we’re doing the math, moving from imaginary numbers to real numbers. (car (squared)= 2 therapeutic chocolate shakes on the way home)
Did I mention car shopping is not fun for me?
I want to accomplish this task, solve this problem, complete this assignment, get my gold star, and check this box off my current To-Do List of Life.
Except that I also want to do it right, and by that I mean making smart decisions–which I am not clear about yet . This leads to indecision, inaction, and being stuck. When I’m stuck, I’ve lost my perspective and don’t know how to move forward. For what feels like far too long. And then I go into overdrive on my mental hamster wheel of “I’m not getting done what needs to be gotten done.”
It’s a process that many of us resonate with–and I don’t mean the car replacement. But going in circles, faster, doesn’t produce forward motion.
I know how to get unstuck. And the reason I forget is that it’s contrary by nature.
Stop doing. Start being.
Yep, it’s true: to get things done when you’re stuck, stop trying. Let them, and yourself, be.
Marinate. Percolate. Validate. Gestate. Assimilate. Saturate. Permeate.
Really feel it.
You might think you are spinning your wheels, when in fact you are generating insights. Instead of creating frenetic energy, you are increasing potential energy.
And this time of being will produce calm, clear direction upon which you will then be able to act. I promise.
You are not being irresponsible. You are creating authentic outcomes. Just on a different timeline, and–surprise!–with greater results. (Which, really, is more responsible anyway.)
Mindful inaction leads to focus in action.
Now breathe. Find the joy in it as it unfolds. You’ve so got this.
You know, exploring random cars is actually kind of fun! Hey, look what got posted on Craigslist today…
