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!

I Knew That Was Going to Happen

Have you ever just been going about your life when all of a sudden you are hit with a very strong gut feeling, an urge/push, a premonition about something that ended up happening? That little feeling is called intuition.

Having a sense of intuition is something that is innate, it is inside us all, but in varying degrees. Some of us are extremely in tune with our ability by either gift, or simply working on strengthening the ability and others are not in tune, or even possibly not aware that they possess such a trait. You may have noticed for example when someone calls, or sends you a text message, you may automatically get a sense of who is contacting you before you even reach your phone…that’s intuition!

Ever since I was a little girl I had a very strong intuition, this ability has only grown as an adult. I’ve always been interested in this topic and I do try hard to strengthen this ability, so perhaps that is why I notice it more as an adult. When you are at one with your intuition, you will notice that it just “feels right” and you feel at peace. Have you ever gone against your gut feeling? How did that make you feel? Chances are it made you feel pretty uncomfortable and worried. Our bodies are telling us information all of the time. We can discover some pretty amazing things if we sit down to listen to what it has to say.

Try to follow your gut feelings because most of the time they will be correct. Your mind and heart can get in the way of a lot of things, including messages that your true inner self is trying to tell you. I have such a passion and interest on this topic. Please feel free to share any intuitive experiences that you have had!

A Thing Called Life

Life…a little word with such big meaning and importance. We are all human and on a journey very different, yet in many ways similar to each other. We wake up every day with a goal, responsibilities, working on personal growth, and we all walk this earth with challenges.

There are different walks of life everywhere you turn. There are people who have struggled a lot in life and those that have not known what it’s like, there are those that look at the glass half-full, while others see it half-empty, there are people who will continue to go down the same path and those who work hard every single day to strive to reach their goals.

For me, I have known many challenges in life, but I also am extremely fortunate and blessed. I try to look at my challenges and struggles as ways that are making me stronger and making me a better person. Struggles give you a goal to work towards, they give you motivation to do your best and to want to change. Personally, I see life as a big lesson, something that will help our soul grow, life is the biggest test with an ultimate reward.

No one’s life is truly easy, we all deal with many struggles, it’s a part of being human. We learn every day and we try our best. Although we cannot change our circumstances, mentally we can change so much. We can choose to look at our roadblocks as motivation instead of failure, we can choose to look at our struggles as defining our strengths instead of showcasing our weaknesses, we can choose to see life as the beautiful and precious gift that it is. You are on this earth for a reason, keep shining!

A Message For Me

The world around us is in constant communication with us. If we take time to notice, there are signs and messages meant for us to discover. Some messages are blatantly obvious and others are more subtle, but each are important to us as we navigate through life.

For over six months now, I have seen 11:11 on the clock at least once, but sometimes twice a day. This number I have always referred to as the “make a wish” number, but it wasn’t until I started seeing it all the time that I learned of another possible meaning. Apparently the numbers 11:11 are strongly connected to the spiritual world and when seen, are a sign that you are on the right life path. I of course was happy to hear this! The interesting thing is that now I am aware of this, one would think that I would stop seeing 11:11, however I don’t, it doesn’t stop no matter how busy I am, it’s still there. Maybe I have not discovered its full meaning, or maybe it’s merely a strange coincidence.

Some of you may not believe in these sorts of messages, everyone is different, but for those of you that do, are there any other meanings of 11:11 that you know of? Have you ever received a message from Above that drew your attention? Please feel free to share!

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.
