This week has been quite a week. I’ve heard this shout out from a few people feeling stressed out and exhausted from ‘putting up with’ conditions and relationships that are PAST DUE.
Their frustration and disappointment is coaxing them to LET GO, SET CLEARER BOUNDARIES and MAKE HEALTHIER CHOICES.
Making changes and moving on is hard–it’s natural to be afraid of change; even the most courageous people get nervous. Facing the unknown future and living with uncertainty is frightening. The nature of the mind is to create safety and control.
Here are 4 SIGNS that it might be time to change it up and move on:
1. You’re taking your unhappiness out on others.
Maybe your job is creating too much stress. You may need to set healthier boundaries about how much you really can work, rather than take your unhappiness out on your partner or kids. No one else causes your unhappiness, this is a condition that lives inside of you. A great master once said, “One of our worst sins is be a nuisance to others.”
2. You’ve lost your sense of self.
Toxic and taxing relationships will suck the life-force right out of you. You’ll recognize you use more energy on feeling resentful and hoping your partner will change than you use on creating a life that works for you. If you wish you could expand into greater expression and harmony, it may be time to rediscover you.
3. The bad outweighs the good.
While your mind might be telling you to ‘keep on keepin on‘ and gives you all the logical and scientific reasons your condition or relationship is okay, listen more deeply. Your truer wisdom arises inside; from your gut, your spirit and your feelings. Your insides don’t lie! They are your compass attempting to direct you to a freer, happier life.
4. You’ve stopped Dreaming.
Day and night we dream, our mind is a dreaming machine. If you’ve stopped Growing to settle, if you’ve stopped Creating to be comfortable, if you’ve stopped Expressing you in order to feel accepted or safe–then you’ve stopped Dreaming.
Every choice you make has an energetic consequence. Even making no choice is a choice. Know that your choices today are creating the energy field–the life you live tomorrow. What do you choose?
