I am always amazed by what the universe provides. In a forced day off waiting for the boiler man to come and fix my heating I came across this article. Sometimes we find ourselves in a muddle, a muddle being a place of uncertainty. I like what the author says about people making choices made out of fear. Read on if your in a muddle.
What I remember most about my early adult years is being confused all of the time. I had many questions that no one was able to help me find answers to. These were important questions that had to do with issues that would affect the rest of my life, such as whether to attend college or to marry, when to have children, where to live, what kind of career path to follow. At the time, I had few people to turn to for advice and the ones I did consult were not always helpful or did not understand me. So I made many decisions from a point of confusion and fear, or based on what others thought I should do and then lived with the consequences. Had I known then what I know now I would have made far different decisions because I now have clarity and follow my own inner guidance. Of course, I also have the experience of my choices as well, so I know what works for me and what doesn’t.
It is an enormous blessing to have absolute clarity about what we want, where we are going and what we want our life to be like. We can use this clarity to guide us as we make choices, create our reality and move along our path. Clarity can come from the wisdom gained through experience, which can take the form of having experienced what we don’t want, but it can also come from learning to trust ourselves and our guidance even if it is different from that of the people in our soul group. What we learn is that we find clarity when we accept ourselves and move forward despite our fears, even when everyone around us thinks we are making wrong decisions.
As many Lightworkers know, we are different from the people around us and we have different ideas, goals and beliefs about the world. While we may not always have clarity about the path to take, we are often confused by the array of options instead of the limitations of having a single one. Since we tend to be the pioneers, the first ones who are willing to try different things, we find ourselves standing alone when it comes to creating the clarity needed to fulfill our dreams, without the support of people who we wish were there to support us.
One of the areas of confusion for me was that I was surrounded by people who made choices out of fear, so their opinions of what I could or should do came from their belief that nearly everything was impossible with a very narrow number of things that were possible. While I was confused about what I wanted, I knew that there were many options and I was not afraid to try them. Asking questions of fearful people made me wonder whether their fears were valid and then caused me to mistrust my own guidance. What if they were right? What if the worst that could happen did? What would I do next?
We find clarity when we realize that we can always change our minds and that even difficult choices provide valuable lessons. Sometimes we have to experience fear in order to learn to not choose it again. Sometimes we have to experience powerlessness in order to find our power. The lesson of these choices is one of perspective—do we berate ourselves for making yet another ‘mistake’ or are we grateful for the opportunity to make other choices? The result of these choices is clarity.
Creating clarity is a process, one that we can take a lifetime to learn. We gain clarity by making choices and then seeing what the results are. Each choice has several components, emotional, physical and spiritual. When we look at each of these components we can gain clarity about who we are and what we want. The emotional component of our choices is how we feel about them and how they make us feel. It is easy to get stuck in the emotions if we feel powerless or afraid or if the results are not what we want. The physical component of choices is what happens in our physical reality—are we closer to or farther away from what we want. The spiritual component has to do with what we have learned. Together, these components provide us with valuable tools that help us gain clarity. We have to be careful not to get stuck in any of them, however, or we will not be able to learn what we need to in order to fine tune our clarity.
Telling the Universe that we want clarity can bring a range of experiences to us, each of them designed to help us become clear about what we want. So we may get relationships, jobs or other life situations that teach us a lot about what we don’t want or that help us focus on what we do want. This is not done to make our life more difficult, but to help us become very clear about what we want in our reality. Since we are able to create our reality with the power of our thoughts and words, knowing exactly what we want make it so much easier for us to create a reality that is truly effortless and blessed. This is the purpose of our life here, to create peace, joy and unconditional love for ourselves and for everyone. When we find clarity and use it to make every choice that we face we will create heaven on earth and our reality will be exactly what we want it to be.
