Are you stuck right now? I have been stuck many times, and since I’m a DOER I’ve always struggled and fought against the condition. It happens when I don’t have clarity of where I’m going.
It’s ok to be stuck. Actually, invite the sucker in and sit with it for a while, fix it some tea, and see what it has to say. Stuck came to me like a brick wall, and I sat by the wall and asked what it needed to be happy.
Security, safety, it said. I don’t want to change; it’s too risky.
To get unstuck involves change.
If you have an idea what you want to do, but stop yourself before you even get started, you have fear. My brick wall was solid fear, but when I accepted it, relaxed into it, and had the conversation over tea, it released somewhat. It became more reasonable.
Embrace the fear, allow it a voice, and see how you can accommodate it and watch it melt away. Make a friend of fear, and know it’s not the end of the world.
When you are struggling and trying to break through with force, you’ll only get more stuck.
Making friends, relaxing, allowing, embracing all of you in a caring manner is the way to release the resistance.
Stuck no more!
It might take a few tries, a few conversations with your fear, but after a while it will melt away, and the path forward gets clearer every day.
I have been painting quite a lot lately. Here are some pictures of my latest art.
