. . . soulful musings and mindful reflections on everyday living
September 10, 2014
Dear Clare & Posey:
I have been in the throws of indecision lately. I cannot decide how to move forward on a project. I am just stuck. Can you give me some clarity?
Clare: Indecision is a very stressful tiring soul waiting game. A few questions: is this project in alignment with your soul’s purpose and needs? Will it bring you both human and soul growth? Is your intention with this project in integrity or has it grown to something you do not recognize? Is it strictly for your exterior sense of accomplishment to show the world something or for your inner wisdom and wealth?
When you are truthful with the above questions, and you continue to be stuck, it is highly possible that Divine Timing is stalling as Source puts unseen elements in place to bring an even brighter project to you. The soul sees patience as an inherent lesson slowing you down as you start to recognize patterns you cannot see when you are full steam ahead.
Take a moment to sit calmly, go into a neutral space, and feel where the indecision has landed in your physical body. Ask your body to show you if you cannot sense it. Ask your guidance if this project is really what you choose to do or something you decided to do no matter what (Posey will comment on this approach). Take time to listen to the answers without judgment. What will you do if you want something that is energetically out of alignment with your true purpose? Will you plow ahead? If so, you are missing a key subtle soul lesson. Your soul wants you to move forward and be in a spacious place. However, sometimes, you do get in a rut where indecision overrides your heart and soul.
Posey: There are two egoic ways to look at indecision – stop because you have tried something like this before and failed or bullet ahead. Is this indecisiveness new relating to your current project or a familiar trait that is in your persona? Sometimes we egos get your mind going so circular that you stay indecisive; you do not act and you remain safe in your little world. Notice I said little and Clare mentions spacious – that is a big difference between us. I want you to stay the course, I remind you of past bumps in the road and indecision could just mean that you are trying something new and you do not know the territory. I worry when something is foreign and unknown to you. Then, of course, I make you worry.
Naturally, you can plow ahead no matter what, create what your want and ignore the consequences – who cares if it satisfies your soul? Not me! This is the real dynamic ego at play – make a decision to do it no matter what so you can look good to others. Puff yourself up, shine in your righteousness, prove your mettle, etc.
Whether you test the waters with this new idea or just suffer with no movement at all. It is up to you, with free will and all that, but remember, egos are designed to keep you in a box without too much new that could be scary, or they can propel you towards a very unrealistic yet shiny goal.
