Sometimes you can find yourself at a place where you look around and sense you have fallen out of alignment with the people, places and things around you. It’s time for change. You can feel it.
Like outgrowing an old article of clothing, you find yourself trying on the idea of a new relationship, job, home or town for size. You might even have begun explore and research a new idea. But all the while as you’ve done this, you sense the gap (sometimes a gorge!) between your life now and how you would like it to be, and for all your wishing, wanting and hoping, how you can get across this divide is frustratingly unclear.
Isn’t it ironic at times like this, that you know you need to start creating new experiences and yet feel suspended in time as you wait for inspiration about what you can do next?
This feeling of being suspended can also be another way to describe the detachment from life’s creative flow that comes when you are waiting for that single, mind-blowing, earth-shattering idea to strike. In other words, you withdraw from truly living, responding to and engaging everyday life because you believe when this bolt of insight hits, you will somehow gain the self-confidence and certainty needed to take ‘right action’. And of course, without realising it, as you hover in this space of detachment, you stray further from your inner knowing, self-awareness and your true, heartfelt needs.
