Some days or weeks we’re all over life. We’re motivated and feeling anew, inspiration aplenty. Other times don’t feel quite so promising, and that’s okay.
We all go through times that have us feeling discontent. We feel stagnant, almost like the world is stalling and won’t give way to anything hopeful. I’m going to let you in on a little secret… discontent can be a seed from which a beautiful garden grows IF you’re able to channel it in positive ways.
How do we recognize the difference between discontentment and just an urge for the next part of our timeline to happen NOW? Discontentment is the dissatisfaction of one’s circumstances. It’s not only an ambitious need to jump, it’s the feeling that if you don’t jump, you will drown. It by very definition has a negative connotation, but it’s time to stop that reaction in its tracks. Rewrite the connotation of your mind and your energy. Here are three things you can do right now to turn that discontentment into positive change.
Tune into Your Intuition
In my book, How to Use Intuition to Change Your Life, I talk a lot about those gut feelings we get and the ways intuition can speak to us when we learn how to tune in. Discontentment is one voice of our intuition. It is a voice from our inner selves telling us not what we necessarily want to hear, but what we need to hear. When we start to realize that discontentment is a nudge from our inner selves to move forward and not a stab in the back we can start to utilize it to not only inch forward but propel forward into versions of our best selves.
“It’s so easy to get lost in your head trying to “figure it out.” Meanwhile, your heart often knows the ONE thing you need to do to get you closer to your goal.” – Joy Martina, How to Use Intuition to Change Your Life
Visualize & FEEL Your Desired Feelings
We can actually use the illusion of stagnant energy and transform it into star power by visualizing discontent as a catalyst for change. Whether we are intentionally doing so or not we are constantly creating energy. When something is as emotionally saturated as the feeling of discontent it just creates more energy and faster. Imagine instead feeling how you want to feel, visualize what you want your life to look like and use that enormous amount of energy and light you have created to make it a reality by taking one baby step towards your goal. Do something positive.
When we start seeing our discontentment with the potential it has as an energy creating tool, we can start utilizing it to break through sabotages keeping us from living our best lives. Draw strength from it to propel yourself forward. To start working through and clearing this type of sabotage, check out our clearing exercise below.
This is your sign to not only shift your mind but shift your life. This feeling of discontentment is actually your superpower. Listen to its whispers and use that as fuel to light the flame under your ass! I see you, I know what it’s like to feel like you’re trapped in life stuck on the pause button. It’s not only time to hit the play button but time to throw out the remote. You are in charge and you are capable of living life on your terms with the power of visualization and your innate Intuition!
