Our card for the day, Wednesday, September 18th, is taken from the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards – Make a Decision – “Feeling stuck or indecisive? Listen to your intuition and make a decision!”
We all are faced with decisions every day of our lives. Most are trivial, like what to have for dinner, or what outfit to wear. Then there are those major life changing decisions we are called on to make from time to time, like whether or not to apply for a new job, or should we move to a new place, or should we end a relationship that no longer meets our needs. Those kind of decisions are often harder to make and have us second guessing ourselves. Should we do this or that, what if we do this and it doesn’t work out, or we regret it for one reason or another. We tend to focus on the bad things that can happen if we make a choice when we should instead be focusing on the good things that could happen.
Sometimes we hold onto things, jobs, relationships, homes, etc., because they are comfortable, we know them. This has sometimes been called “better the devil you know than the devil you don’t”, which is something that we say when we think it is better to deal with a person or thing we know, even if we don’t like them, than to deal with a new person or thing who could be even worse. It also means we would rather stay in our comfort zone than try something new that may not work out. This feels to me like a self-imposed prison. We are so afraid of change that we stay in situations that make us miserable.
Well it’s time to break out of our prisons and start taking some risks. It’s time to start making some decisions about who we are and who we want in our lives, about the kind of work we want to be doing, and where we want to live. It’s time to take a chance to find who and what makes us truly happy, because staying stuck in unhappy relationships or situations is not being true to who we really are. If making decisions is a daunting task then we need to listen to our hearts, our intuition, our gut feelings if you will. If we are still uncertain, we can ask the Angels to help us, we can ask for a sign as to what decision would be the right one to make for us. “At any moment, you have a choice that either leads you closer to your spirit or further away from it.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
If we want to live an authentic life then we have to make some choices. They may not be easy choices or decisions, but they will be very worth it in the end. “Right now you are one choice away from a new beginning – one that leads you toward becoming the fullest human being you can be.”~Oprah Winfrey
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
