You Are Not Stuck

Have you ever felt that you couldn’t change certain aspects of yourself no matter how hard you tried? Do you keep finding yourself in similar situations over and over again even though you promised yourself that you wouldn’t go down that road again? Sometimes we hit a roadblock in life and it feels like we are truly stuck, it feels like no matter how many moves we make it’s always the wrong one. I’m here to tell you some good news…you are not stuck!

People are generally creatures of habit, we like the same route to work, we keep a similar schedule every day, and habit is what makes us feel comfortable. What if however, our habits are what is holding us back, causing us unhappiness, or giving us a sense of failure. As hard as it can be, you have the power to break the habit, you have the ability to free yourself from being stuck in life, you have the tools to overcome any obstacle that stands in your way. In most cases, the only thing stopping you is yourself!

Often times we make a promise to ourselves to change, we might make a decision to eat better, to exercise, to devote more time to our families, or we may simply be working on a part of ourselves that no longer serves us in life. We may feel that certain situations in life may be preventing us from moving forward and living our true authentic self. No matter how stuck that you feel, there are ways to help you become a better version of yourself and ways to move past certain situations in your life. Sometimes the solution is just taking another step in a different direction, a sort of indirect move that will ultimately land you where you are destined to be.

So often we find ourselves saying that we cannot leave a relationship because we have been with our significant other for many years, we can’t change our job because we don’t know if we have the skills to perform at a job much different than the one have, we cannot stop certain behaviors that we possess even though we know they do not have a positive effect on our lives. Many times we feel stuck because we don’t know what to do, or we may know, but not have the push to actually follow through. As with many things in life, true change takes a lot of hard work and determination.

Part of trying to get through the feeling of being stuck in life is knowing that there will most likely be consequences and sacrifices, but keep your eye on what you are wanting in life, keep your eye on your hopes and dreams and know that if you truly want change in your life, you have the power to do so in some way, shape, or form. Imagine the feeling that you will have when you reach a goal, when you no longer live with the daily burden of feeling trapped. I hope that in some way this gives you a sense of motivation to keep pressing for all that you desire your life to be!

Look Around You – There are Signs

Has anything like this ever happened to you?  For the last month or so, every single day without fail, I have seen the numbers 11:11 on the clock, whether it be day or night and sometimes it’s both, seeing it twice in one day.  Yes, it could be a very rare and strange coincidence, or my body automatically syncing to that time like an internal clock, but I believe that it may be due to something far more. 

There are some people that don’t believe, or are maybe on the fence about what I have to say in this blog post and I respect that.  Your views are your views and my views are mine.  It doesn’t mean that you are right, or that I am right, everyone sees life and the world differently.  There are certain things or circumstances that I chalk up to being a mere coincidence and some that I believe hold some kind of message. 

When I first started seeing 11:11 on the clock about a month ago, I made a wish and didn’t think much of it.  The next day and then the next, I saw it again.  I made a few more wishes and went about my day.  I continuously saw 11:11 daily, sometimes twice a day and still see it every day a month later.  I have only known 11:11 as the number sequence to “make a wish.”  I have done some research since I have been seeing it so much and I have read about some really interesting things like that it has a connection to the universe, angels, and it is considered a very spiritual number. It could mean that you are on the right life path, or that your spirit guides are trying to contact you.   Seeing it a few times doesn’t alert me, but seeing it daily has me very curious.

I am both a religious and spiritual person.  I have a wide range of experiences with the afterlife and paranormal.  I was always a believer in these things before, but having these personal experiences has really been amazing and eye-opening.  I tend to always seek and search for a deeper meaning or purpose.  I have always had the mentality that everything happens for a reason and that each of us is given a life path full of joys, lessons, and experiences to help us become the best and strongest person that we can be. 

Throughout my life, I have had several of these little patterns emerge.  Right now, it is seeing 11:11 and about a year ago, I was having non-stop repetitive dreams about a certain major life even that ending up coming true.  In the past, I have found bird feathers after asking for a sign from my departed loved ones and I have seen little clues here and there to let me know that I am on the right path.  Every step seems like a nudge in the right direction. 

There is honestly so much that I could write about on this topic.  I have had a very strong connection to God since I was a very young child and I have felt His amazing presence throughout my life, guiding me, helping me, making me stronger. I can’t help but think that many subtle signs like seeing 11:11 are messages for us from the other side to keep going, keep out heads held high, a sign that we are tiny beings in an infinite universe.  There is so much more than meets the eye here on Earth, there is so much beyond our comprehension as human beings.  The other side is in constant contact with us in one way, shape, or form.  If we just look around us, there are signs, but we must be open and welcome them.
