Clarity can be the difference between feeling lost and feeling free. It’s potent medicine that can shift you from suffering and into momentum. Clarity is the type of thing that often you don’t even know you’re searching for, but it’s been the answer all along.
Here’s how clarity works…it’s a doorway to understanding what you need, why you need it, and how to honor that need. The fog that’s hovering over your feelings, your decisions, and your doubt will finally clear and aha…clarity. It feels like freedom and sings like gospel song. Soft, beautiful, and uniquely true.
It’s clarity. Because it’s you.
So much crap can get in the way of what it takes to get clear. Clear on what to do. Clear on how we feel. Clear on our truth. Clear on what’s next. Clear on why. And that crap is normally a cocktail of fear, hiding, other people’s opinions, the patriarchy’s bullsh*t and our own justifying, and doubt.
Here’s the deal…clarity requires:
1.) HONESTY, and honesty can be wildly uncomfortable.
2.) YOU GOTTA BE BRAVE…To have clarity, to know what you feel, to know what to do, you’ve got to be brave.
3.) YOU MUST TELL THE TRUTH….The truth of what’s working for you and what’s not. The truth on what you really want, and what you don’t really want. The truth of what living in your power looks like. The truth of where your boundaries actually land. The truth of where you’ve been playing small in order to be accepted, anywhere.
4.) STOP TRYING TO FIT IN!
Fitting in. Don’t do it. Don’t listen to the people who ask you to do so. Don’t fit the molds. Don’t shimmy yourself in anyone’s container. Live freely and expressed, however and whatever that means for you. Your spirit knows no limits.
5.) THE SCROLL MUST STOP
Scrolling. Screw the scrolling. It’s not helping. It’s chipping away at who you are. So stop.
6.) GIVE TO INSECURE PEOPLE
Insecure collaborators. Their insecurity can easily become yours. Look at what’s going on. You spend so much time with them. Create a plan to navigate it.
7.) DONT KILL MY VIBE
Negative humans. Out. Get them out right now. Or do everything you can to minimize how much time you spend with them. It’s more important than you’ll ever know. Once you get to the other side of them in your life, you’ll realize you should have done it so, so long ago.
8.) THE NOISE IS TOO LOUD
Trying to do it all. Housework. Childcare. Homework. Work Work. Party work. Creative work. Drop some balls. Let some of it go. Including your expectation that you’re going to get it right all of the time.
9.) DONT SURROUND YOURSELVES WITH THIEVES….they steal your joy.
Comparing. They are not you. You are not them. Please put on your blinders.
10.) FIND A NEW LIGHT LIKE THE SUN
Fluorescent lights. They’re spirit suckers. Get outside. Breath in real, fresh air. Get the vitamin D that will surely be a happy shot to the blood stream.
11.) FIND COMFORT IN YOUR BLOODY SHOES
Uncomfortable shoes, ain’t nobody got time for that. Your spirit is made to move. So find soles that let you dance without pain.
12.) BE COOL WITH THE UNKNOWN ZONE
Fear. You can’t control what’s to come. So stop trying to rehearse and strategize it. Stay here. Right here. It’s all fine right where you are.
You are bigger, braver, and more ready than you realize. You’re ready to look your truth square in the eyes. Because when you do, you’ll find clarity has been waiting there for you all along. And no matter where she takes you, you’ll be able to handle the outcome. Because it’s clear. So clear.
