What to Do When You Don’t Know What to Do

what to do when you dont know what to do

Feeling lost? Stuck? Confused over which path to take?

We all feel like this at times, and the longer these feelings linger the stronger they become and the more tangled with emotions.

What is life trying to teach you when you feel so unsure, when you feel like you continue to reach a dead end, or lack clarity to take the next step?

Life is saying- Be Still. Stop going down the path that you are going down because it is getting you no where.

If you feel like you have reached a dead end, it’s because you have. And you can either turn around and retrace your steps, or you can learn to jump over the wall.┬áNeither is better, it’s up to you, but life is getting you to stop and wait for guidance.

Stopping can be a scary place to be for many, but if you allow yourself to fully accept and move your awareness into the present, you will see how easy and fluid this step will become.

Here is a breakdown of what to do:


1. Stop what you are doing and all your thoughts, if you have been thinking one way, change your point of view or try to explore another option or line of thought, doing this will create new energy and this new energy will have the power to move you into a new direction.

2. Pay attention to your feelings as they are your emotional guidance system. Pay attention and see when and where you feel good. Follow the good feelings. Confused about how you feel? Go back to step one, and try to just focus on the facts without the emotion. Imagine you are an outsider looking in, what would you say to yourself?

3. Trust your gut. When logic alone is not enough to solve a problem, you must turn to your next tool, and that is your intuition. Our intuition is more often than not correct, and rarely will it guide you wrong. In order to connect with your intuition practice meditating, go for a walk in nature, relax your mind and your body, seek help, or practice this exercise.

Life will guide you, but only once you stop and surrender to your situation. When you do, the answer will come like a speeding bullet, and you will see that it was probably staring at you in the face the whole time, you just couldn’t see it yet.
