When we feel we are stuck in a situation and have no power to change it, remember that there is a reason why we feel that way. Even though one part of our psyche is ready to move on, change things and do something different, another part is still not quite ready. This part feels insecure with change and uncertainty, diffident and fearful. That is why we choose to stay. A known evil, as they say, may be better than an unknown one. Can you hear the voice of fear there?
The day the pain of staying in that situation becomes greater than the fear of moving on, we move. We will muster enough will power, confidence, get-up-and-go, what have you to make that change. It all comes to the surface.
When we wish to step out of a web proactively, some steps become necessary. The first is the acknowledgement that the situation is my own creation, and there is an underlying pay off that keeps me here. Once I am able to acknowledge that, I can also come to a place of gratitude. Our last month's meditation (see below) was about acknowledgement.
The next step is to determine and commit oneself to making the change. We don't have to know how or when. We just have to be clear in our minds and deep in our hearts the time has come to change. It is the strength of this desire that will release the power to make the change happen.
