Feeling stuck and indecisive? 11 tips to get moving again

When we’re feeling stuck and indecisive, we don’t know where to go or what to do. And in the end, we don’t do very much. Strangely enough, this inaction is very draining and takes up a lot of our mental energy. So, the next time you want to get un-stuck, follow these 11 tips and get clear again.

  1. Listen to your feelings

Neurologist and author, Antonio Damasio, has discovered that when the area of the brain, which processes emotions, is damaged, we lose our ability to make decisions. That’s how important our emotions are when forming decisions! So, when you’re not sure which way to turn, pay attention to your emotions. Often, they point us in the right direction.

And if you can’t figure out what your emotions are telling you, make a decision and then observe how you feel. Feelings don’t lie!

  1. Just start

Sometimes, we have a hard time getting started because we think we don’t have anything to work with. If that’s the case, give yourself something to work with – and it can be anything! A rough draft, an outline, or even scribbles on a napkin.

  1. Forgive yourself and be compassionate

You can be your own worst enemy and hold yourself back more than anyone or anything else. This can lead to self-sabotage and shame. Instead, try to be very gentle and compassionate and forgive yourself. It’s easier to move forward when you feel loved – even by yourself.

  1. Believe in yourself

Internationally-acclaimed yoga teacher, Kathryn Budig, has a strong devotion to Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt. You can follow Budig’s example by incorporating her prayer into your daily mantra: “Artemis, huntress of the moon, make my aim true.”

This practice could strengthen your self-belief, self-confidence and inner resolve.

  1. Done is better than perfect

Sometimes, our need for perfection prevents us from moving forward. But the truth is, perfection isn’t possible, so try not to get too hooked up on it. In fact, done is better than perfect. So, be proud of what you finish, even if it’s not “perfect” because guess what? It would never have been anyways!

  1. Stop comparing

Do you think other people are better, smarter, prettier, more worthy and more eligible than you are? If so, you won’t give your dreams the energy and focus they need to come to fruition.

What’s worse, you won’t reach for your dreams anymore. So, stop comparing yourself. This might mean taking a social media break. It might also mean cultivating a gratitude practice. Both of these things can help clear your mind and give you more mental space.

  1. Go where you’re curious

It’s easy to get stuck when we feel that we “should” be doing something. But why not step away from this sense of obligation and move toward pleasure instead? Why not migrate to where you’re curious? The way out of indecisiveness can sometimes be found in our own curiosity.

  1. Ask the universe for a sign

Why struggle alone? The universe is loving and generous, and it’s at your disposal. You just have to ask for help. Pam Grout shares in her book, E-Squared, that the famous Bible verse, “Ask, and you will receive. Seek, and you will find,” isn’t a timid and uncertain request.

Instead, it’s how you claim what’s rightfully yours. So, don’t be afraid to tap into the abundant universe.

  1. Set the intention to find clarity

When you’re lost in the woods, you might not know where to go. But one thing’s for sure: you want to get out! When you’re stuck and indecisive, it’s hard to know what you want, but at least you know that you want clarity.

So, every day, set an intention to be open and receptive to answers and inspiration, no matter what form they take. Doing this can make you feel better without necessarily having a clear direction.

  1. Give yourself positive reinforcement

It’s hard to build momentum – especially if you’ve been stuck for a long time. So, whenever you make even a little progress, celebrate! You can celebrate by praising yourself, by indulging in a nice treat, or by taking a little break. When your brain is rewarded, it will be more inclined to get back to work when you’re ready.

  1. Go somewhere new

Our minds can get stuck in a rut when we’re doing the same thing over and over again. A great way to shake things up is to go somewhere new. Take a new route on your commute. Visit a different part of town. Go away on the weekend. Relocate for as long or for as little as you want. By doing so, you help your brain create new neural pathways. These new pathways make it easier for you to develop fresh ideas and become more creative.

How to Prepare for and Utilize the Energy of the New Moon

Do you want to clear the slate and start fresh? Every month, the new moon gives us a perfect opportunity to set new beginnings. With simple rituals and intentional mindsets, you can prepare for and utilize the energy of the new moon to manifest your goals and dreams.

Why is the New Moon powerful?

Compared to the Full Moon, the New Moon is hidden from us. But don’t underestimate her power. The energy of the new moon is empty and open, and even though it’s a good idea to continually set your own intentions, why not tap turn to the New Moon for some help? It can powerfully supercharge your intentions.

Preparing for the New Moon

The New Moon gently graces the sky every month. You can find out when the next one is with an easy online moon calendar.

  • Gather your sacred tools

You might be into divination decks, crystals, gemstones, incense, sage smudging, candles or journaling. Whatever your sacred supplies are, gather them up for your New Moon rituals.

  • Cleanse

The day of the New Moon, focus on cleansing the negativity out of your life. You can clean your physical space with a sage smudge stick or incense.

It’s also a good time to detox and nourish your physical body with whole, unprocessed foods, too. And if you practice yoga or meditation, use these mindful activities to cleanse your mind, body, and spirit as well.

Why all this cleansing? Think of it this way: before you can serve a special dinner, you need clean plates to serve it on. It wouldn’t make much sense to prepare a special dinner and put it on a dirty plate, right?

The same thing applies to the New Moon. In order to tap into this power, you have to make a clean space for it. Only then, can it work its magic.

Be grateful during the New Moon

Most of us turn toward the New Moon to improve our lives. This suggests that we’re not completely satisfied with our current life situation. But even if that’s the case, work to cultivate a grateful mindset anyway. Gratitude is the highest vibrational energy available to us.

And when we stand in the fertile space of the New Moon with gratitude, it’s easier for us to attract and manifest better experiences for ourselves.

Write a gratitude list during the New Moon

It might seem overly simplified, but writing a gratitude list is probably one of the best ways to cultivate gratitude. At first, you might feel like you’re coming up empty.

But just start by being grateful for the simplest, smallest things, and you’ll find that the gratitude will just grow. That’s the wonderful thing about gratitude – it’s contagious and starts a domino effect.

By cultivating gratitude for the present moment, you help to welcome the experiences that haven’t manifested yet.

What to do after the New Moon

Now that you know how to prep for the New Moon, here’s what you should do once it’s occurred:

  • Write your intentions

Just after the New Moon happens, write your intentions down on paper. And as you write them, be sure that they feel right to you.

For example, you might write an intention that sounds good on paper, but if it doesn’t feel good, or if it makes you feel uneasy or restless, reconsider your intention.

This might mean rewording your intention or letting it go altogether. Try to trust your inner wisdom and intuition here.

  • Be open to the New Moon’s power

The New Moon can supercharge your intentions. And while it’s important to be specific and sincere about your intentions, it’s also important to remain open and ready for what comes.

For example, you might want a pay raise because you don’t feel valued at work. Now, you might end up with that raise, but you might also end up with an even better career opportunity.

It might be a change you weren’t expecting, but the New Moon can be very generous!

The New Moon is empty and open before it fills in all of its blank spaces. And when you take time to prepare for the New Moon with mindful rituals and practices, you can create a blank, fertile space where you can manifest positive and joy-filled experiences for yourself, too.

How to Prepare For and Create Healing During a Full Moon

People have been looking to the moon and tapping into its power for millennia. That’s because the energy of the moon is incredibly powerful. With some simple preparation, you too, can access the moon’s power and begin to create healing in your life.

Why is a full moon so powerful?

Imagine holding a magnifying glass up to a small object. It appears much larger, doesn’t it? Now, imagine that the full moon is like that magnifying glass. When it appears every month, it magnifies whatever energy is inside you.

Therefore, if you’re experiencing positive energy and emotions, the full moon will increase them abundantly. On the flip side, if your life is full of negative emotions and energy, you can really begin to feel, well, like a lunatic.

Negative energy can manifest as scarcity mindsets, feelings of lack, emotional blocks, grudges and relationship problems. These states of being are already difficult, with or without the moon. So, you can only imagine how a full moon can leave many people feeling overwhelmed.

Therefore, it’s important to do some mindful preparation before a full moon. Then, you can come away feeling better rather than worse.

Basic preparation tips for the next full moon

The following steps will help you make the most out of each and every full moon and create space for healing to occur.

  • First, find out when the next full moon is with helpful sites like this one and click on the moon phases calendar. That way, you’re not caught unaware!
  • Pause for the cause. If you want to discuss something that’s upsetting you, leave it on the back burner until after the full moon. As we already know, the moon’s energy intensifies the energy you’re already feeling, including negativity. So, if you try to tackle these difficult emotions during a full moon, the situation could get messier.
  • Cultivate as many positive thoughts as you can. You can do this with a gratitude journal, a gratitude walk or simply say thank you again and again. Remember, whatever you experience during the full moon is magnified. It’s like buy-one-get-one-free, and who doesn’t want the uplifting experience of gratitude in their lives?
  • If you have a vision board showcasing your dreams or goals, add a little more focus on it when the full moon fills the sky.

How to purge negativity from your life during a full moon

Apart from supporting your positive emotions and kickstarting your goals, you can also remove darkness and negativity, too.

So, if you’re fed up with all the disruptive energies wreaking havoc in your life, a full moon is the perfect time to clear the slate and make room for a more positive life experience.

To assist the moon in purging negative energies, create a sacred space. If the weather permits, you can set up a small altar outside. Otherwise, arrange one in your home. It can be as simple as a table, countertop or shelf. The important thing is that it’s set aside for this sacred purpose.

You can use many different objects to adorn your altar, such as healing stones, crystals, candles, fresh flowers, bowls of water, as well as sacred images or objects.

Before the evening of the full moon, take time to identify any negative elements in your life. Are you struggling with certain people, job concerns, your body image, self-love, or anything else?

Whatever it is, create a list of everything that’s clouding your life. Then, write each problem down on separate pieces of paper. You’ll probably end up with a little pile of big problems you’re ready to release or change in your life.

During the night of the full moon, clear the energy of your altar with a prayer, smudging, or by asking the spirits and angels to join your purging ceremony. Then, take each slip of paper and read it out loud.

Imagine that the moon is a sentient being, who listens to each and every slip of paper you read. After you read each one, make a bold command: “Be gone!” with lots of strength, resolve and confidence.

Remember, the moon magnifies whatever you focus on. So, even if this ritual seems small and insignificant, the moon has your back and will add a lot of power to your little actions.

To close the ceremony, burn the slips of paper and offer a prayer of gratitude to the healing energies you’ve just ushered into your life.

Even if you wouldn’t consider yourself spiritual or well-versed in astrology, you can benefit from and find healing during a full moon. Share your full moon experiences in the comments below!

How to Set Boundaries

Boundaries are very important. You must know what you are okay with and what you are not okay with. Without boundaries, you are setting yourself up for disappointment and pain. If you don’t want people to take you for granted, you have to know where your boundaries begin and end. It takes skill to develop and preserve your boundaries.

No matter how hard it has been for you to stick to your boundaries, take heart and trust that it is a skill you can easily develop.

Listen to Your Heart

You can’t set your boundaries without knowing who you are. Knowing yourself implies that you have to identify what matters to you and what your values are. It helps to develop a deeply introspective approach in general. Analyze what feels good to your heart and what doesn’t. Making your feelings an emotional thermostat for analyzing your boundaries is a good place, to begin with. Generally, anything that doesn’t feel good to your heart should give you the cue that the other person’s actions are violating your boundaries. Don’t fool yourself by trying to justify their actions if the little voice inside your heart tells you that something is amiss. Remember that the wisdom of the heart is always far superior to the logic of the mind. Give your heart more credit for everything it knows.

You have to identify and set your boundaries in all key aspects of life. This means that you must know what your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual limits are. Identifying and understanding your boundaries is already the job half done. As ironic as it might seem, most people go through their entire life not really knowing what their boundaries are. They constantly express great disappointment when someone says something or acts in a way that is not really acceptable to them. They also make the mistake of seeing it only as a one-time instance, instead of understanding that the words and actions of the other person were actually a violation of their personal boundaries. Therefore, I’d advise that while determining your boundaries, you go back to all those instances in your life when you felt deeply saddened and hurt by the words or actions of another person. Ask yourself why it hurt you so much and are you willing to let something like this happen ever again?

Set Your Boundaries

You have to make sure that others know what your boundaries are. Sometimes this can be achieved by being subtle and indirect. However, other times it may call for a far more direct approach. Usually, when two people are similar in their communication style and socio-cultural background, a subtle approach can be quite effective. On the other hand, if people hail from different socio-cultural backgrounds and have distinctly different communication styles, then a direct approach is the best.

If anything happens that makes you uneasy, you must make sure that the other person knows how you feel about their behavior. Of course, this is not always easy. There are risks involved as it can change the dynamics of your relationship with the other person.  However, this is where it becomes very important to ask yourself what you are willing to live with and what you are not willing to take on your stride.

The best way to communicate how you feel about something is by discussing your feelings without any obvious finger pointing. This allows the other person to hear you out without getting defensive. For instance, if you feel that your partner does not allow you enough space to truly be yourself, convey it in a way that doesn’t make them instantly defensive. So, instead of, “You don’t let me be myself,” you can say, “I know how much you love me. I also understand that you always want the best for me. However, sometimes I find it very hard to completely be myself with you. I know it’s not your intention but sometimes I feel as if you don’t fully accept me for who I am.”

When you bestow sincere appreciation and thank the other person for the good things they are doing, it instantly puts them at ease. Besides, when you talk about your feelings without any blame, it allows them to truly listen to you without getting defensive.

Of course, setting boundaries is no easy task. You will have to deal with a lot of difficult emotions that might come up while you are trying to enforce your boundaries. Don’t forget that nothing worthwhile is ever easy. You have to exercise patience and constant self-awareness. Choosing to stick to your ethics and personal beliefs is an act of self-respect.

Love Yourself First

You can’t give to others what you don’t have for yourself. If you don’t love yourself, then you can’t fully love another person either. You are your greatest responsibility. Looking after your needs and providing for yourself is not an act of selfishness but one of self-care. Give yourself room to be yourself. Stay assertive when communicating about your boundaries to others.

It might take the time to identify and set your boundaries. Start small but remain steady.

What is Human Frequency and How Can You Raise Yours?

The Law of Vibration

The Law of Vibration states that everything is constantly moving, shifting, and vibrating. This early twentieth-century theory by Albert Einstein suggests that when matter is broken down into smaller components, it enters into a different realm where everything is made of vibrating energy.

What is Frequency?

Frequencies are based on vibrating cycles. Faster vibrating cycles mean higher frequency, and slower cycles make a lower frequency. The measurement of vibration cycles per second is called Hertz. A frequency of 500 cycles per second would be 500 hertz (Hz).

 What is the Human Frequency?

Humans are no exception to the law of vibration. The frequency of a healthy human should be between 62 and 68 MHz (megahertz= 1 million hertz). Higher frequencies are related to a happier and healthier you. High frequency relates to high energy, which is positive. When vibration is high, you are more likely to attract positive people and outcomes in your life. Like attracts like.

When frequencies drop below the 62-68 MHz range, it can lead to a number of negative impacts in different areas of your life, including poor health, negative relationships, or poor finances. Typically, sickness and ill feelings will set in when your body drops down below 58 MHz, but many suggest staying over 62 MHz to stay healthy.

How do I Raise my Frequency?

There are many ways to raise your frequency and thus improve your overall being. One simple method is to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Water flushes the toxins out of your system and helps keep your organs going.

Taking a break from the hustle of life to appreciate the beauty around you is another easy one. When you recognize the beauty in life, you can appreciate it more and your frequency will rise with your positive energy. You can also eat good food or enjoy nice smells. When your energy is positive, you will attract the positive things in life.

Of course, meditation also raises your frequency as well as being grateful and practicing acts of kindness.  These are all simple things you can do daily to keep your frequency up.

Connecting to Source: Guidance from Today’s Most-Loved Spiritual Teachers

There is so much more to life than the physical world. Nonetheless, the physical world is very good at distracting us from the spiritual realm. It can be challenging to connect to the Source amidst the hustle and bustle of daily life. So, let these spiritual teachers inspire you to reconnect again. You’re much closer to the Source than you realize!

Deepak Chopra

“Human beings are made of body, mind, and spirit. Of these, spirit is primary, for it connects us to the source of everything, the eternal field of consciousness.”

Deepak Chopra’s is reminding us that our human nature is actually designed for connection to the Source. Your spirit – just like your body and mind – needs to be nurtured properly. And it’s important for your spirit to connect to a greater Source.

Eckhart Tolle

Even though this Source of everything is greater than we are, it isn’t far away. Eckhart Tolle teaches that Source “is deep within every form…it is accessible to you now as your own deepest self, your true nature. But don’t seek to grasp it with your mind…You can know it only when the mind is still.”

Your spirit doesn’t just connect you to the Source of everything. It’s already deep within you. Pretty amazing, right?

We only need to find silence and stillness to connect with it.

Mother Teresa

Another revered teacher, Mother Teresa, affirmed Tolle’s teaching when she said, “God is the friend of silence. See how nature—trees, grass, grow in silence; see the stars, the moon, and the sun, how they move in silence…. We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

You can move in silence, too! Just take a cue from the beautiful world around us.

Lao Tzu

This ancient teacher recognized the importance of silence and his words are still relevant today. He continues to remind us that “Silence is a source of great strength.”

Why? Because, as Dr. Wayne Dyer taught, silence is where you “make your personal and conscious contact with God.”  

So, from Lao Tzu all the way up to Eckhart Tolle we see that the Source is already within us, and always accessible to us. We just need to enter into a state of stillness and quiet. But how can we do that when we’re all so busy and distracted?

Create Stillness and Silence

When you acknowledge and honor your spiritual nature, you can set aside time to cultivate this much-needed stillness each and every day. Here are some easy ways to do that.

  1. Find a quiet place
  2. Set the intention to connect with the Source
  3. Still the mind and open it to the Source by choosing any of the following methods: Breathing Techniques, like Nadi Shodhana and Kapalabhati; meditation; writing to your intuition; journaling; prayer, and yoga.

 Open Your Third Eye with Carol Tuttle

It’s easier to connect to the Source when your 6th chakra, or Third Eye, is open. With mindfulness and awareness, you can open it again.

“Om” is a perfect mantra for the crown chakra. By chanting “Om”, you can actually activate the pineal gland and pituitary glands, which in turn activate this chakra. This is important because as Carol teaches, this physical location is where the spirit sits in the body.

You can also support your 6th chakra with purple and violet colors. So wearing purple clothing, or keeping crystals like amethyst nearby, are helpful practices, too.

These teachers can support you as you deepen your connection to the Source. We hope their wisdom will open many peaceful and joyful experience to you.

How Powerful Affirmations Can Impact Your Life

Affirmations are a very powerful method of creating things that we want and changing the quality of our lives. Affirmations are declarations or thoughts that work to create a certain result; concentrating on a goal to make it a reality.

There are three aspects of affirmations, the first aspect is the words we use to express our desires. Once we establish our message, we will use visual images(the 2nd aspect) to accompany it. For example, if you are affirming a trip to Hawaii, you might want to use a postcard or brochure to take in the palm trees, lounge chairs, and beaches that the trip might entail.

The third aspect is to recreate the feeling of your affirmation. For a trip to Hawaii, you may feel relaxed or excited to be in such a unique destination. If you bring a loved one, you may feel a sense of romance or an increased bond. Try to feel these emotions, and they will drive you to make your affirmation a reality.

Be Aware of Your Affirmations

We give ourselves affirmations throughout our daily lives—though we are not always aware of it. The things that we say and think to ourselves are affirmations. The things others tell us that we accept and believe are also affirmations. Sometimes when we are not aware of their presence, we can create affirmations that are not good for us.

Negative Affirmations

These negative affirmations can creep into our daily thoughts, and if left unchecked, they can become beliefs that we base our lives upon. Some of the negative affirmations that can affect us are thoughts like: “the world is against me”, “life is full of suffering”, or “no one loves me”.

 Discover Your Negative Beliefs

Discovering these negative beliefs is the first step in dissolving them from your life. You must be conscious of these thoughts. One exercise to help catch yourself thinking negatively is to think of a positive affirmation. “Good things come easily” or something similar is a good start. When you think of something positive like this, your mind can quickly come up with reasons it is not true or why it will not happen.  Thoughts like:

  • They never have before
  • Some people aren’t meant for good things
  • Why should I be optimistic?

Another negative approach some take is to think of the benefits of a negative situation. The benefits of not having good things come to you may be:

  • No good things mean I have nothing to lose
  • No one will ask for anything if I have nothing
  • I won’t feel guilty for others who have nothing

Catching your negative affirmations right when they happen will help you to nip them in the bud. When you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, you can supplant them with positive affirmations and begin your path to making those thoughts a reality. Also, consider how you are looking at things through love or through fear. One gives us negative thoughts and the other positive. Happy Affirming!
