Are you facing a crossroad? Have you been considering a couple of choices and both seem to be good for you but you need to make a move and don’t know which way to go? Are you afraid to make a mistake and choose the wrong option?
First of all, consider this: What if you couldn’t make a mistake? As an Intentional Creativity® facilitator, one of the powerful teachings I share with my clients is that there is nothing you can do wrong. You can’t choose the wrong color, the wrong paintbrush, and you can’t paint the wrong strokes. True that your inner critic will try to convince you otherwise, doesn’t mean it’s right.
By "trying on" this new way of operating, you learn to quiet down the Inner Critic and turn your attention to your Inner Compass to receive guidance.
Practicing accepting that you can’t make a wrong choice in front of the canvas
helps you build your trust muscle and strengthen your capacity
to see new perspectives which you then bring in your every day life.
Second, if you believe that you have a large invisible team of beings ready to offer support, you can ask them for specific signs to help you in your decision making. I’ve used this technique many times and when I had the courage to follow through, I haven’t been disappointed.
The special trick to this technique is that it needs to be specific. Ask to see something specific that you wouldn’t expect to see and within a time frame.
For example, my daughter was hesitating between 2 majors in College. She felt that she was receiving signs that guided her both ways, but she had to make a choice. So I taught her this technique.
1- She got clear on the life she wanted to experience after College,
2- She chose a specific sign: a butterfly,
3- Within a timeframe: 24 hours
4- Meaning: Seeing a butterfly within 24 hours would mean that option A would be the most in alignment with who she is and her dream for her life after College. And it had to come from her… not me pointing out the butterfly to her 😉
And just to be clear, we were on a 12 hour road trip in the middle of winter in Canada so the chances to see a butterfly were zero to none. Well, within 4 hours, she was watching Netflix on her phone when she saw 2 butterflies on the wallpaper in the background of the scene. And after that, it was a butterfly sign after the other. She said she’s never seen that many butterflies in such a short period of time, not even in the summer. She had her answer. She changed her major and she is sooooo happy she did. She feels so much better and she is so enthusiastic with the possibilities.
If you think that you see the signs because you’ve asked for it and therefore your awareness is just heightened to see these things specifically, I can tell you that often, when I desperately wanted to see the sign I was asking for, I didn’t see any. I was looking hard but it just wasn’t the time to choose that option.
If you don't receive the sign that confirms option A, try the same technique to see if option B is the best choice. If you don't see signs that confirm Option B as a good option, maybe it's time to explore other avenues and wonder about new possibilities. I have some tips to do so but it will be for another post.
Try out this technique and let me know about your experience, I would love to hear!
