Getting Unstuck

Written by Natasha J. Rosewood

“What kind of people come to see you?” skeptics sometimes ask,repparttar tone of voice implying that I only consult with lunatics.

“People from all walks of life, “I respond oh-so-patiently, “Male and female, young and old, rich and not-so-rich, powerful and famous come with all kinds of queries. But it’s not a matter of who comes butrepparttar 135482 issues they come with,” I add. “A common one for a lot of people is “feeling stuck,” not knowing which way to go in life.”

“And what do you tell them?”

“That they are in good company. And stuckness is part ofrepparttar 135483 process.”

Psychic or not, sometimes my own future is indefinable. I just don’t know. Or that’s what I tell myself anyway. Some hidden fear may be lurking in my unconscious mind and creating a smokescreen.

Metaphorically, energy or “chi” is like a flowing river. When we feel stuck,repparttar 135484 flow of that river is caught in an eddy. Our chi is going around and around in circles and being sucked down into a bottomless vortex.

Remember, though, this is only your mind telling you that you are stuck. Energy by its very definition means motion and, therefore, cannot stay still. “Stuckness” is just an illusion and sometimes, merely a judgment of where you have not yet arrived. Your ego mind, your conscious waking-state chatters at you, berating you constantly with “I should be doing. . . ” or “what’s wrong with me?” or “I don’t know…” et al.

But stuckness does not have to be suffered. It can be celebrated.

The good news is that feeling stuck is part ofrepparttar 135485 human process and, believe it or not, serves a purpose. Stuckness is about standing still for a while and allowing us to take stock. In our Western culture and our headlong rush towards success and then death, (not always in that order) we do not allow ourselves permission to not know our destination. And if you resist your stuckness, it will only expand.

4 Ways You Can Get Over Your Need For Acceptance And Get On With Your Life

Written by Larry Bilotta

Imagine what your life would be like if you could just be yourself, without thinking twice about what other people think of you! Here are four quick tips that will help you learn how to accept yourself. Make these four things a part of your daily routine and you’ll find people will judge you less and accept you more!

1.See Yourself as a Success

You’re probably familiar with that little voice inside your head that tells you you’re never good enough. Instead of letting that voice continuously judge what you didn’t do right; focus on an actual moment in your life that makes you feel wonderful.

This could be a moment at your wedding,repparttar birth of your first child, or a great victory you achieved. Picture it as if you were living it all over again. Right before you think of this moment, say these words: “You know what this (sayrepparttar 135481 bad feeling you are having right then) reminds me of? It reminds me ofrepparttar 135482 time…

Then remember or in essence “live out” your great moment. Endrepparttar 135483 moment withrepparttar 135484 words: “That’s what this reminds me of.” This is exactly what Olympic athletes have done for years to increase their physical performance. They see it first in their imagination and then they reach their goals.

2.Restore Your Self Confidence

The second key to getting over your need for acceptance is self-confidence. Confidence isrepparttar 135485 result of how you see yourself in your imagination. The way your nervous system makes you feel isrepparttar 135486 direct result of what’s going on in your imagination.

That’s why when someone describes a great meal; you begin to salivate even though there is no actual food in reality. To your nervous system, this “food” is more real than actual food itself. Since that’srepparttar 135487 case, just think what would happen if you imagined yourself being successful and confident?

When you see confidence in your imagination, your nervous system believes you are confident which changesrepparttar 135488 vibes you give off. People will treat you better because they can feel your success and want to be around it. THIS is what actually makes you stop worrying about what others think of you. Those days of wishing someone would take an interest in you can now be ancient history.
