How To Move Forward
Do what I suggest in this post and see what begins to unfold in your life and consciousness, because this is by far the most powerful thing you can do for yourself in any situation.
If you feel stuck and unable to move forward, if you need inspiration, guidance or direction, whatever it is,
Take a bottle of water and a pen and paper with you.
Go outside in nature, find a place to sit where you can be undisturbed.
As you walk to wherever it is that you’re going also speak to yourself while you walk there and tell yourself what you are about to do and that it is important.
“I am going to go out and talk about all the things that I need guidance about and this is very important and I know that the part of me that knows the way forward is listening to everything that I’m saying right now”.
When you have found your place; sit down and relax.
And then when you are relaxed you can begin writing your heart out; write down every question you can think of, everything, as if this was the most important thing you ever do in your entire life and as if this was the one and only time you did it.
Really give it your all.
When you feel you’re done, ask yourself “is there anything else that needs to be expressed?”
Continue write if needed until you feel intuitively that you are completely done.
And when you are done, read out loud what you have written and explain to yourself/elaborate on what you have written and talk with the higher aspect of yourself about everything and ask for help/clarification/guidance etc.
No whining and complaining allowed I might add!
Talk to yourself (the all-knowing part of you) and ask for guidance in a way just as you would if you were talking to your very best friend that you know would help you.
When you are done doing that;
Put down paper and pen and take a few deep breaths and close your eyes.
Breathe and relax yourself into a meditative state, which might take a few minutes or so, just give it the time it takes and don’t give up if you’re a newbie to meditation.
When you feel relaxed, stay there for a few moments (establish yourself in the relaxed state of mind).
And then begin to listen.
You can ask silently within yourself too as if you’re communication at the same time, but most importantly is it to really listen.
Let the answers come to you.
What you have done is that you have just dropped all the questions about your life that you need help with into the depth of your inner wisdom and intelligence, and now you’re in a position to receive the answers you seek.
Sit and listen like this until you ‘wake up’ from the meditation naturally.
If no answers came up immediately (in the meditation) then simply know that things has already started to move and rearrange themselves and that guidance will come (or what needs to happen next will simply happen to you without you doing anything).
Before you leave your meditation-place you need to release the whole thing because when you leave and go back home there needs to be a break from your attachment to the answers and everything you have just done.
You need to let it go.
You can of course save your writings but I would suggest that you burn the papers (if it’s safe to do so of course), otherwise do as your guidance tells you to do, but the point of this is to release your concerns, questions etc and to actually let go of them.
So burn the papers and let it all go into the Truth of who you are.
This should bring a sense of relief and peace to you – and now it’s just a matter of letting the answers come to you.
Next and lastly;
Go back home, take a shower, slip into your pajamas or bathrobe, make some yummy dinner; do something nice for yourself, relax and trust that whatever you need to know will come to you in perfect timing.
You can sit inside too of course when you do this, but to be in nature is something special;
it speaks to you, and there’s great peace there, stillness and beauty,
and it creates a different kind of sacred space in which you do this
and then when you leave,
there’s a sense of completeness that you can’t necessarily get in the same way
when you sit on the couch in your living room.
