Putting Yourself Out There

There will be times in your life when you feel disengaged from the world.

You might find yourself avoiding connections with new people such as work colleagues, potential friends or love interests.

Maybe you believe that you can't speak up and be yourself and that you must hide from reality.

You might feel stuck, stagnant or bored. Perhaps this boredom is leading to self-destructive behavior...

These are all signs that you need to create new experiences in your life. The best way to do this is to put yourself out there.

But what exactly does it mean to put yourself out there?

It means expanding your comfort zone and doing things that challenge you. It means shaking things up and trying things that you normally wouldn't.

It's about being open and allowing your energy to be more out there.

Practice taking a leap of faith and saying yes to things. Accept an invitation or better yet, initiate something.

Don't be shut down by perfect pictures. Almost any situation is an opportunity for growth if you stay connected and true to yourself.

Don't be afraid of failure or embarrassment! You will regret missed opportunities far more than the occasional stumble.

Putting yourself out there can be uncomfortable. Practice being in the uncomfortable place. Visualize yourself acting in these moments. Practice using breath and gold energy to stay grounded.

Your spirit is constantly working to create new opportunities for personal growth. You'll begin to notice when these moments come up. It feels exciting and organic.


Break the Cycle of Boredom

Last week, I re-watched one of the newer Star Trek movies.

In this particular movie, the scene opens with Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) sitting in the Enterprise bridge. 

Kirk and his crew are on a space mission and they have been traveling for years.

Each day is tedious and a repetition of the previous day. Kirk is depressed, lonely and bored.

Does this sound familiar? Are you stuck in a cycle of tedium? Do you feel that life is passing you by?  

If this is the case, it might be a sign that something in your life is misaligned spiritually and that it's time to make a change. 

Common Feelings of Misalignment
-Feeling stuck
-Fear of trying new things
-Feeling blocked
-Feeling disconnected from your intuition
-Feeling shutdown

The first step in getting realigned is to acknowledge that there is a problem, that something is out of sync.

Tune into yourself to get clarity on what's not working. Take notes, write down the problem. Keep a journal.

Anytime you are about to make a change in your life, it’s a good idea to get an intuitive reading. Don’t make changes out of panic or because you’re reacting to something. You should make intentional changes that are guided by your higher self.

Take action to create your change. Even small steps in the right direction make a big difference.

Finally, you should accept that continual change is a part of life and get comfortable with the process.
