Funny things have happened lately... the self-doubts have been creeping in again. I'm hearing other people talk about how they're experiencing it too. Not sure if it's the celestial goings on... or just that we all cycle through moments of stability and ease, to some sort of discomfort, and back again. I think it's called "growth" or "life".
Some say that we go through our lives constantly being pulled toward our "true purpose". They say we came to this life for a reason... to share a gift of who we are. But how do we know if we're showing up in the fullness and richness of who we are? We only know it in the place in which doubt doesn't exist. Because as soon as we doubt, we don't know anymore.
How to grapple with doubt? Whoa. Not sure I have an answer for you there right now. I'll keep playing with it and I'll get back to you. I suspect, that doubt, like fear, just points to places that we carry conflicting ideas. Like... "should I go this way?" or "should I go that way?"... because one belief supports one way... and another belief supports another way.
I'm going to throw out the possibility that the way through doubt is to look for the beliefs that support each possibility... then consciously choose the direction that is supported by the belief structure that you most want to cultivate in your life. Choose... then shelf the doubt. Yes? No?
I do know that when I make choices with clarity, I'm much happier... it's easier to keep moving forward... the doubt is less likely to keep hounding me. I know WHY I choose what I do... and that makes me stand taller (which is no small feat! :) I'm not terribly tall!). What is doubt like for you? How do you deal with it? Are you in it right now? What's your next step?
I'm an explorer of inner realms, a pattern observer, and an invitation maker. I believe that healing the world starts within.
