4 Steps To Help With Indecision
I decided to write about being stuck or confused in our choices today since a lot of us have been little offbeat lately. Fear of making the wrong choice is one of the main reasons people hesitate to make a decision. And when we have timely decisions to make, it can feel even harder and more pressure-filled.
So here are four semi-eccentric tips to help you next time you're feeling stuck:
1. Stay hydrated
When your brain is even 10% dehydrated, it is said to be up to 50% less effective. You cannot make good decisions when you are not fully available. Make it a habit to keep some fluids with you at all times, especially when you are the move.
2. Breathe deeply
The simple act of conscious breathing will bring you back to the present. When our minds are too full it's easy to get carried away with every thought, making it harder to know which one to listen to.
Most people breathe through their chest, which is known as shallow breathing, instead of breathing deeply and properly -- through their diaphragm. Breathing properly takes you from the places your mind was scattered back to your NOW, which is where you can cause the most effect. It grounds you in, helps you focus and is a good place to start.
3. Put it out there
Get playful. Ask an "I wonder" or a "what if" question. The job of your subconscious mind is to find what you are looking for, and the job of the Universe is to bring you tailor-made answers to the questions you ask. The subconscious lives on instructions and the Universe likes to play and get creative in bringing you your solutions.
An example can be: "Hmmm... I wonder if I should go into business with Barbara," or, "I wonder if this investment will profit me." Then let it go. Let go of attachment to outcome. It only puts pressure on you. The Universe will find creative ways to bring you the signs.
4. Weigh it out
How does it feel? Ask yourself, "Does this feel light or heavy?" "Do I feel expanded or contracted when I see this happening?" Your body knows the answer according to the way you feel about it. Your inner guidance knows the answer before you do.
By weighing it out you are simply allowing that guidance to speak to you through you and through the way you feel.
In time it will become easier to find the answers you are looking for. The more you stay open, the less the fear has a chance to feed your doubts.
Stay open. Be creative. Your mind knows which way to go.
