Feeling Lost

February 29, 2016

th… is an indication that you are not where you want to be – YET.

But clearly you are on your way because feeling lost is the FIRST STEPit’s the step of SURRENDER. It’s the step of “my career is not working, my relationship is not working, I need out of here.” It is the healthiest step one could make because it acknowledges that where you are in life is NO LONGER WORKING for you. It’s the hardest step to make BUT it’s the only one that will yield you the greatest propensity for change.

Once you make that first step away from what is not working, the feeling of “being lost” is inevitable. But believe it or not, in “being lost,” you are actually open to the myriad of possibility around you. In other words, when you surrender to “being lost,” the universe can bring new opportunities to you. This is because expectation blocks the manifestation process but when you have no expectations (because you don’t know where you are going), it opens up a whole universe of possibility for you. Think about it – when you are lost, you stumble upon so many new places and unexpected experiences that you would not have encountered had you had taken your usual route.

Stop thinking you have all the answers – especially if those answers are no longer working for you. Staying stuck somewhere you do not want to be doesn’t make you safe, it gives you a false sense of security and an even falser sense of identity which is truly the definition of BEING LOST.

Don’t fear and avoid feeling lost because let me tell you, “uncertain happiness” is ALWAYS much more productive than “certain unhappiness.” Knowing where you are isn’t better than being lost if where you are is making you unhappy. 

Feeling lost isn’t the problem, it is a temporary by-product of the solution towards change and finding real happiness. No one likes to feel lost, but when you realize that it’s actually a first step closer towards being in a new situation that is better suited for you, then there is no need to fall into the drama of feeling lost.

Feeling lost is temporary, but it’s presence guarantees you permanent happiness if you allow yourself to go into it fully. So don’t run from feeling lost, embrace it, open up to it and joyfully accept all the new opportunity that it always brings to the table for you.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
