In the last 2 blog posts, I covered Fear of Success and Fear of Change as part of the discussion on the 4 main causes of Procrastination. This post will focus on the third cause which is:
LACK of CLARITY
Ah, the concept of clarity! It is so easy to dismiss the concept of clarity as something that isn’t all that important but when you are not clear about what you want, you can become stuck and that’s where procrastination can get in your way. So, let's take a deeper look at clarity.
Clarity is all about Choice! It's making a DECISION around what you prefer to experience. When you don't make that decision, you have not made a clear declaration to Universe/God/Source for what you desire. How can you possibly expect to receive Divine Guidance to move you forward if your Choice is unclear? If your choice is unclear, guidance cannot move you and this is where Procrastination sets in.
You can also get hung up around the “HOW” of your choice but you want to remember that the “HOW” is not your job. That is where the Divine Guidance comes into play as the “HOW” is revealed through the inspiration for the actions you need to take. It is easy to allow the lack of clarity around how something is supposed to unfold to trip you up. It really is important to remember that Spirit's job is to guide you to the “HOW” that will serve your highest and best in creating your desire.
This also speaks to the concept of trying to “make something happen” verses “allowing it to unfold with ease”. OR, the paddling upstream verses going with the flow analogy that Abraham (as channeled by Esther Hicks) speaks to. The clarity you want to cultivate is around the “WHAT” and not the “HOW”. The “HOW” speaks to attachment. When you are focused on a certain way your desire needs to show up, you close the door to other ways that Spirit can surprise and delight you.
Call to Action
My mentor's request to you is to think about where you are procrastinating in your life and ask yourself if Lack of Clarity is at play. If so, here’s an exercise to help gain clarity around your desires.
What do I really want?
What does it LOOK like?
What does it FEEL like?
What SMELLS do I notice?
What SOUNDS do I hear?
What TASTES are in this experience?
When you involve all of your senses, the image becomes more real for you.
In actuality, people pay a lot of money for clarity…although they may not call it that. Clarity is essential. If you don’t know where you’re going, how can you expect to get there? It’s like having a map that is blank. You have no indication of where you are or where you need to go! You need to get clear – crystal clear on what you want. How do you want to FEEL? What kind of person do you want to be? When you get clarity, your internal GPS gets working for you and keeps procrastination at bay!
Guiding women to gain clarity around what they truly desire is part of the work that I do. I would be honored to support you if it makes sense for you to receive support.
