As I work out decisions and issues in my lives I see the issue with having so many choices. We want freedom to choose and the options available, but sometimes all of those options cause stress. The question becomes is it more stress to have the options or NOT to have the options. I personally still prefer the struggle over the options vs. the limitations. I am grateful for the opportunity to get to know myself and what I do want, when presented the choices. Sometimes people turn to me to answer these questions on choices for them. I understand the lure of it. I wish I had all of the answers and knew the BEST choice at all times. But the truth is, sometimes the best choice is the "wrong" choice, because it takes us where we want to go on a level we couldn't do with our thinking mind A friend of mine gave me an article today about how people can get addicted to having someone else tell them what to do next, aka calling psychic hotlines. I don't have a psychic hotline... in fact, I don't charge by the minute and I rarely work with anyone without an appointment. But, I do still see people lured into the idea that someone else might be able to tell them what decision to make.
If you have had a reading with me, you know I don't give you any answers, just information about the energy regarding each of your choices. Then you are free to choose as you wish. That being said sometimes it is helpful to get another energetic perspective in that regard. But never to take away from your own intuition on what is right.
Insightful Inspiration of the week
Take a pressing matter you have in your mind right now. Something you think you "should" decide on soon. Maybe it is about a relationship, a job, or just what to have for dinner. Layout all of your options on a piece of paper. Listen to yourself about these choices. Have a conversation with yourself.
Is the issue that you feel you don't have enough choices or you have too many? How can you give yourself more choices? Get creative. There are always new ideas to be had in regards to choices. If you have too many, are there ones that are just there because you want to weigh all of the options? Do you really need them on your list?
Do you have to decide right now? Can you wait until things get a little clearer?
How does each choice feel in your body. Does your stomach clench up when you think about doing it? Does your energy feel lighter when you think of that choice?
Breath deeply into the choices you have and see if anyone feels more peaceful than the rest.
See if you can just step back now from the decision and come back to it later. Not to be procrastinating, but to let yourself see things as they unfold after you spend some time with it. Let yourself off of the hook a little bit too. If this seems like a challenging decision do get some perspective. Ask a for help, find a counselor, minister, or someone you can trust to help you get some perspective. There is no harm in asking for help from your guides and the universe either.
Have a fabulous week!
