Occasionally in life we find ourselves in a position of being in a rut. It seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. These issues are down to a predictable pattern and it is important to become aware of this so that you can move forward in life and achieve the best you can.
When it comes to anything in life, we have patterns. We follow patterns and then there is a result. For example – slumping your shoulders and putting a frown on your face is a sure fire way to depression! It is obvious what happened. We put ourselves in a sorry state, and then did the patterns that causes such feelings.
We can find a better and more vibrant state, however, we can’t without awareness. The ingredients to make the rut is simple. Same as the pattern which results in sadness, there is a pattern for being in a rut.
This pattern usually manifests with a monotonous repetition of things. This could be doing the same thing every day over a period of months.
The key will be to become aware just when these problems presented themselves. Then you would seek to find events and lifestyle changes and other things which has caused this issue.
Once you know this, you can pin point the things that you did that made the result culminate in a rut at this time. The good news is that knowing this, you can then adopt the changes fast.
There are some other things which causes the rut situation.
Bad sleeping patterns. The Sun is a good measure of how humans should operate, and you might find that not being in sync with the natural flow of life, is likely causing the issue. Getting into sync and being an early riser is a great way to get into a flow state.
Energy blocks are an issue also. This manifests from your perception as feelings. And these happen from the focus in your mind. If you consistently have negative thoughts, then it is likely that it will gradually move from thought to feeling. It is important to break the chain and then find the good things in life.
There are 2 keys that will help immensely. One is the act of being grateful. That is to see the good in life. Everything has 2 sides to the equation, and the glass is either half full or half empty. With this wisdom, we can remember to take the time to be grateful.
The other important key is meditation. The act of letting go of past and future and being present is a good idea as it will help you to take back your power which you likely have at least for a portion of your time invested into past, which is no use in most cases, and future, which hasn’t happened yet.
As you move into acceptance of things as they are, then you can move toward looking at the solutions. A better state is starting to stir up in you, a more positive state. And as you read these words, a good feeling will come over you, as you descend into happiness and joy.
The process is simple – become aware. As you become aware, then you can seek to find the benefits. From there, you can move forward to a new place.
All problems pass. Some people tackle them, and some don’t. The key is not to take life too seriously in the face of assumptions.
