Life is filled with twists and turns. Just when you think you know what is coming, the path deviates. There you stand at the crossroads, paralyzed with fear, trying to decide which way to go. Making the decision is difficult because you never know what will meet you when you go one way or the other. Instead of standing there stuck, try these four ideas that will give you some insight as to which path to take.
One way that can help find your footing and choose the right path is to make a pros and cons list. Making a list like this lays it out so you can assess the risk of one choice versus another. Having it all written out makes it easier to make an educated decision.
Sitting in a quiet place and meditating can sometimes clear away thoughts that keep you from hearing what your gut is telling you. Find a quiet place, sit down, straighten your spine, and close your eyes. Then take a deep breath for four seconds. Hold it for five seconds, and breathe out slowly for six seconds. Repeating this sequence a few times calms the nervous system which can get louder than that small voice inside that might just know where you’re meant to go.
If your natural intuition is lacking, or you still feel uncertain, seeking someone more intuitive to help guide you might be the right answer. Tarot card readings can offer much-needed guidance in any situation that leaves you unsure of what to do. A psychic or clairvoyant can help reveal your path, give you some insight as to what’s next, or offer reassurance that you’re going the right way.
Another way to find direction is to seek the advice of a close friend or family member. Someone close to you, that has your best interest in mind and knows you well can give you an outside perspective. Sometimes just talking it out can help you make sense of things enough to make a decision.
When life throws a detour into your path and you are unsure of what to do next, don’t panic. Take a deep breath and know that you don’t have to succumb to the overwhelm that threatens to creep in. With one or all of the suggestions above, you can find your footing and start heading in the right direction.
