So you’re feeling like you are in a rut. It’s a mindset that we all have sometimes. Normally the best thing to do is to push through it, but can getting stuck ever be a good thing?
We can feel stuck for a number of reasons. Regardless of what the circumstances are, it always points to the fact that what we are doing isn’t working anymore. It can feel like there are only two options in this situation; fight our way out of it, or give up. There is a third option, though.
Stop and observe.
Sometimes we get stuck because we are focusing attention on things that don’t benefit us, or aren’t in alignment with higher self. We are missing clarity. A rut can be a wonderful gift that keeps us from moving on a path that might not be in our best interest.
Become mindful of what’s going on in your life right now. Take a step back from the struggle and look at things from the observers’ standpoint. When we try too hard to get out of a certain mindset, we tend to overlook things. Ask yourself a few questions, then observe.
Are you stuck because you are being obstinate in your desire to get exactly what you want, how you want it, and when you want it? The need to control every aspect of an outcome can keep what you yearn for from manifesting in your life because you aren’t open to new possibilities.
If you feel that your way is the only “right” way to accomplish things in your life, then let me ask you this; how’s that working for you so far? As the observer in your life, take a look at where you are micromanaging your creation.
Getting stuck can remind us to detach from the outcome of our intentions. When we ask for what we want, then let go of what “should” or “could” happen, we allow creation to unfold in its own time, in its own beautiful way.
