Are You Struggling to Be Perfect?

Recently, I spent quite a bit of time trying to do a class exercise. The exercise was Imagining your Perfect Average Day as presented by Frank Kern. While the exercise is certainly useful, I found that focusing on specific details was actually causing me great distress.

calm womanI found that by trying to focus on specifics of how I would feel, what I would see , smell, eat etc., I was caught in the dilemma of choosing “the right thing.” The idea that you would choose details in your perfect average day that you would be willing to live over and over, like in the Ground Hog Day movie, was keeping me stuck. I didn’t want to live the same day over and over.

I was focusing a lot of time on a future ideal day and not embracing the current day. What would be helpful instead? I immediately thought about how I have been making changes in two areas of my life: decluttering, systematizing activities and adding more physical movement into my life style.

I know that I want my home to be less cluttered and more organized and have some household activities more systematized. Instead of trying to get a big picture with every detail, I choose to focus instead in small chunks.

This is where I notice my clients often get stuck on. What is “THE BEST THING” for me to do? When we ask that question, we often get stuck in a whirlpool of judgment.

Give this a try. Get centered and in a meditative state. Then, ask your inner self, “What is the next small doable step that is aligned with my direction at this time?” Then wait for a response. It may be immediate or a few days later.

Often times, I read or research a topic like decluttering. I don’t take any immediate action. A few days later, something clicks in my body mind and I find I can more easily take action.

There was a book called Slow Down to the Speed of Life. I don’t remember the book’s content. But whenever I recall the title, I give myself permission to embrace and be with what is. So slow down, and allow things to click for you.

If you would like some help with clarifying what’s emerging for you, I am offering a limited number of intuitive readings.
