The Reason You Feel Stuck
A few months ago I saw my psychic for one of my biannual readings. I’m always very excited to see her because she offers scary accurate revelations and guidance when I’m not entirely clear on what direction to take. This time, however, the first thing she told me when I walked into her space was, “Your energy just made me feel tired”. Bitch, what? I was indeed feeling like I needed some guidance but I’m constantly working on having a cleansed, vibrant energy so her pick-up rattled me.
This reading in particular didn’t offer any revelations, it was more of a wake-up call. It opened my eyes to knowing that I was feeling frustration from being stagnant. There were things that I wanted and I believed I could attain, but that was only half the work. I wasn’t doing the other half which was to actually go for them. That lack of momentum had me stuck and it showed.
We live our lives in cycles of highs and lows and it’s because of this that it’s inevitable to feel the effects of stagnation at times. We feel like we’re emulating this better version of ourselves, and perhaps we are, but everything stays very much the same with no change in sight and it gets increasingly discouraging.
It’s easy to get caught up in what’s showing up (or not) in our outer worlds, especially when it’s not what we want, but remember our external circumstances are always only mirroring what’s going on inside. We have to ask ourselves if we’re really moving our energy or if we’re just going along for the ride, complaining and hoping everything changes out of the blue.
Even if we are more evolved, when we want something, we have to be in motion for it to flow to us. Think of a revolving door, nothing leaves or comes in unless that door is moving. It’s the same with us because we are energy. It’s also the same with money, dating - everything.
When we truly understand our experience is entirely up to us, we’re empowered and less likely to fall into feeling “stuck”. We know it’s on us and that blaming anything else is futile. If you’re really deep in that hole (that’s what she said), then start off being gentle with yourself. When we’ve been idle for too long, we’re not going to immediately be Michael Phelps with the swim moves. Do one thing at a time and build from there. Even just physically moving our bodies immediately makes us more dynamic.
Mentally claiming something is one thing but going for it gives the right thing momentum for it to come. Since my reading, I applied for the grad program I’ll be starting this fall, I re-launched this site and have just been seizing more and more opportunities to put myself out there. If this is resonating, let this post offer perspective and push you to get moving after what it is you want. Shoot your shot, apply for that job, launch that new endeavor.
