Last week I talked about how I came to find my purpose. I shared how the discomfort of loss caused me to question life.
When we are uncomfortable long enough, many of us eventually decide to try something else. Maybe we become more willing to open ourselves, ask questions, and allow guidance to come through.
I was reminded of this yesterday.
The question asked was, "what is the simplest way to receive guidance?".
The answer: discomfort.
As humans, most of us don't like discomfort. We will do almost anything to avoid it.
And yet, by avoiding it, we perpetuate it. We also lose connection to wisdom and ultimately healing when we ignore discomfort.
What to do?
When discomfort shows up, we can welcome it as a source of guidance. We can connect to it instead of avoid it.
We can connect to discomfort by asking questions.
For a simple example, if we are uncomfortable because we are tired, we can ask things such as:
Why am I tired?
Am I always tired?
Does something need to change?
Maybe the guidance is telling us to rest. Or perhaps we are being guided to make some other changes in our life.
For a more complex example, if we are uncomfortable because our love partner isn't showing up in the relationship, we can ask things such as:
How long has this been happening?
What is going on with them?
Do I need to get support?
Maybe the guidance is telling us to speak up, ask, advocate. In short, to take action.
Energy healing and meditation are 2 practical tools to help us navigate discomfort and tap into the guidance awaiting us.
After all, if we weren't uncomfortable, nothing would change.
