Most of the clients I see are in a place of transition in their lives - actually, all of them are, in one way or another. For some, it's that they're in between jobs and aren't sure of where they want to go. For others, they've taken the "leap," knowing their dream job is out there but not quite sure what it is. For yet others, they've taken the leap and know what their dream job is, but they're not sure how to get there. And for still others, they're already there but are faced with choices they're not sure what to do with. What do you do? How do you know which choice is right??
The answer that comes through over and over and over is that it doesn't matter. Well, it does and it doesn't. Every choice in life we make puts us on a different path, or a different part of the same path, and understanding that is the first step to making the choices easier. The thing is, we get so caught up in the whole "right" and "wrong" thing that it adds pressure to an already confusing situation, and that just makes the decision harder.
In my intuitive consultations, obviously what comes through for each person is different. But invariably, it boils down to what is it you want in your life? There's certainly no right or wrong in terms of what you want, and if you can start to identify that, you're halfway there.
Each of us has a dream, a vision for our life. And when we're confronted with choices, it's an opportunity for us to clarify what that dream or vision is. When we're struggling against the place of having to make a decision, wanting it to be really obvious, we make it harder on ourselves. Struggle implies resistance, and resistance stops flow. Another way to look at choices is to be grateful that they're there. When we don't have choices, we are trapped, and we aren't in the flow. And when we have choices and resist them, we aren't in the flow.
We are given choices in life because they push us to identify for ourselves what it is we want in life and how we want to get there. And usually there's no right or wrong. Why usually? Because sometimes it's very obvious to us what's "right" for us, but we don't acknowledge our instincts ("right" for us means exactly that - for us, for what we want in life). We don't trust ourselves, but we know.
So here's my two cents on choices: When it's obvious, it's obvious. When it's not, it's because there's still "work" to do on identifying what it is you truly want from life. Either that, or it doesn't really matter.
When we know what we want, life moves for us. It responds. Figure out what you want, and choose. And if you can't figure out what you want, just choose anyway. You will continue to be offered choices until you do figure it out. And even then, there will be choices. So just choose. And be good with it.
