The world is changing constantly and as it does, more and more people are stepping outside the box of what they are "˜supposed' to do and reaching for more soul, passion, and purpose in their lives. But, how do you know when it's time to make a change? Below are six signs it's time to shake things up and how you can begin to change your life for the better starting today.
Feeling stuck in any area of your life is a clear sign that something is amiss. You might be feeling stuck in your career, in the place you live or in a relationship and no matter what you do to get unstuck, you just can't seem to make any progress to move forward. Feeling stuck is a strong message for you that it's time to let go of the old and welcome in the new vibrant energy of the world so you can begin living the life your soul intended.
2. You're lacking passion and inspiration.
Going through the motions of life without a feeling of passion and purpose is a huge sign that it's time to shake things up. Life is meant to be enjoyed to the fullest and we as humans are meant to grow and evolve with new ideas and aspirations and if that is something you are lacking right now, it's time for a change. There is nothing like the vibrant energy that comes from fresh new ideas and I guarantee it's exactly what your soul is craving right now.
3. Life feels stagnant.
Far too many people get sucked into staying safely tucked away in their comfort zone while time (and life) passes them by. If you are feeling like your personal growth has become a bit stagnant and you are missing that loving feeling that comes from new experiences, fun adventures and new projects then it's time to take things up a notch. Life doesn't fit inside simple, square boxes and neither do you. It's time to break out of your comfort zone and enjoy all that life has to offer. So, what are you waiting for?
4. You feel lost.
Your soul communicates with you in a lot of different ways and feeling lost or out of sorts is one of the ways to get you to shake things up. You may be feeling a bit scattered without a plan or feel like you are floating through life in a fog, but deep down you know this is no way to live. If you are feeling lost my friend, it's time to reach out and find yourself again. The rest of your life depends on it.
5. Your world is seemingly falling apart.
Many people don't take action to change their lives until the very foundation on which they have built their lives begins to fall apart. If you've lost a job, just ended a relationship or are finding yourself going through a major life upheaval, you may be feeling a bit shaken up already. You are here to live an exquisite life with passion, purpose and connection and sometimes the only way for your soul to get the message across, is to tear down the old so you can build anew. If your world is falling apart, it's time to take action and get really clear on what you want in your life. You don't have to settle for what is in your current reality. You have the power to create and build a life you love starting today.
6. You've lost that loving feeling.
We are going through a major shift in the world where we are being forced to look at our lives and get clear on what we truly desire. You may find yourself feeling a bit bored with life as it is right now and are craving more fire and passion. Now is your time to be honest and true to your desires and to what your soul is calling you to do. It's time to step up in spite of your fear and be true to you. I promise your soul (and the world) will thank you for it.
So, now that you know it's time to shake things up, what should you actually do? Here are a few suggestions.
Get clear on what you want.
Far too often we get so caught up in the "˜doing' of life that we forget to check in to see if what we are doing is actually what we desire. Take some time today to get really clear on what you want the rest of your life to be. What is important to you? How do you want to feel moving forward? You deserve to live a life you love and getting clear on what you want is the first step.
Release what no longer serves you.
This might come in the form of letting go of old beliefs or physical things that are holding you back from the future you desire to live. A great way to get started is to clear out the clutter in your physical space to make room for the things you truly desire. Once you have done that you can begin working on the beliefs about yourself, the world, or life that might be limiting you right now. Letting go of the old "˜stuff' shifts your energy and the energy around you to allow more amazing opportunities that are in alignment with the life you desire, so whatever you do, don't skip this step.
Reach out for help.
For many people change (even when it is invited) is a hard thing to deal with alone and reaching out for support is key. Whether you reach out to a friend, family member, partner, or you seek the help of a coach or other professional, having someone to support you when you need it most is invaluable. We are not meant to live or evolve in a vacuum and our connection with others is a key ingredient for creating positive change in our lives. Find your support system and reach out when you need it. I promise you won't be sorry you did.
