Lately I’ve been feeling stuck. I want to be unstuck. Ever been there?
I’ve tried prayer. I talked to God. I cried to God. I pleaded with God.
I tried counseling. And I got really honest with myself and with others, baring my deepest feelings.
Today in the car I decided to follow Rebbe Nachman of Breslov’s advice and sing. I sang along with the songs my son played on my Ipod.
I still felt stuck.
Tomorrow I will get off my butt and start moving my body. I will exercise. No more staying at my desk all day long. I need to get the energy moving.
I also will start doing my own Kabbalistic conscious creation visualization and exercise on a daily basis again.This will help me focus on what I want in my life rather than on what I don’t want–on being unstuck rather than stuck.
Additionally I will implement affirmations into my daily practice–a.m. and p.m. These will help convince me on a conscious and unconscious level of who I truly am and can be.
And I will start using gratitude exercises in the morning and evening, reminding myself of the things for which I am thankful.
And I’ll get one thing knocked off my to-do list each day that gets me closer to my Big Goals.
The point is to change my energy as well as my thoughts and to feel like I am getting unstuck, almost like I’m pushing a car out of a muddy rut.
That’s the problem with getting stuck: All you see is the mud. All you hear is the spinning tires. And all you feel is exhaustion from trying to get unstuck.
You have to do something different. Wait for the mud to dry. Turn the tires. Reverse. Get out of the car and walk…or run.
What do you do when you get stuck? What gets you stuck?
