Getting Clear : Decide!

Create something special . . .

Many of my clients want to make a career move, but are unsure of what they love to do. They have guessed wrong in the past, and they’re afraid of doing it again. But moving forward requires a decision. So, many are stuck, waiting for “the right answer.”

To help find it, they ask others. They look to the past. They reference culture. Their left brain clicks into high gear — it is determined to find the answer. It looks and looks. (And makes us crazy in the process.) In the end, it doesn’t know… it just has to guess. It can’t know, it does not have access. The answer lies in the right brain, and it lives in the left.

To get to the right brain and your answer, use your body. The spirit uses the body to communicate our tru* path. If you’re stuck, find a quiet, peaceful place and try this:

1. Make a list of the options you’re considering.
2. Take the first one and imagine doing it. Close your eyes. Engage all the senses: sight, sound, touch, taste and smell. See yourself in action and really feel it.
3. On a scale from 1 to 10 (10 being the most excited), score your excitement.
4. Go to the next option. Do steps 2 and 3 again. Don’t worry about why, just stick to the body sensations.
5. Experience each item on the list with your body and score it.

The option that scores the highest is the “winner!” It most aligns with your true self and the work you’re here to do. Start there! I know, it’s not how you’re used to making decisions. It’s a NEW way. Try it, if you’re tired of waiting.
