Inspirational Snippet: Self Doubt

Good Day Beautiful Beings of Light!
So many changes have been happening, so many decisions have been pressed to the forefront and so many choices are still being weighed out--these are the times on our planet right now and no one is left untouched.  Some people may be distracting from what needs to be decided or done, while others are ready to go forward full throttle, but the energy is not so easy on us.  The pressure is on and yet, some of us still hold back. I came across this quote today and it inspired me to write my thoughts about it below:   

Doubt is the vestibule which all must pass, before they can enter into the temple of truth.—Charles Caleb Colton
On our journey we encounter much doubt, especially within our self and for our self.   This is true within this journey upon earth.  Doubt not only keeps us humble, but keeps us in authenticity with ourselves.  It is what helps us find our way.  So if you are going through life confronting some self-doubting that is okay, as it is what it is.  Simply remind yourself that you are learning to trust in who you are.  Trust your path....and accept that there will be moments of doubt; but move on from there as there is no need to linger and rehash what you are doubting....just make your decisions from your heart and trust in your choices. 

I know sometimes I write things that seem easier said than practiced.  We all often revisit lessons we think we have learned and thanks to Mercury Retrograde, we often revisit for a few weeks several times a year.  Rather than look at it a s a bad thing, it may benefit you to view it as an opportunity to pull back another layer to discovering who you are. 
Ask yourself some questions  to help you through the experience of doubting yourself:
  • In what areas of your life do you find doubt creeps in the most?
  • In what areas of your life do you find that the doubt is influenced by societal beliefs, familial beliefs or even religious beliefs? 
  • In what areas of your life do you find that you nurture your doubt by surrounding yourself with negative energy (people that are not uplifting to your soul)?
Some Tips for you:
1. Surround yourself with love-inspired people as those relationships are the most rewarding to have.  It is powerful beyond all belief.
2. Acknowledge that you are feeling self-doubt, but do not let it defeat you.  Acknowledge it for what it is: perhaps it is fear of change?   Fear of success?  or simply fear of the Unknown?  Whatever it is, it is okay that you feel this way presently, but do not allow yourself to stay stuck in it.  Think for a moment, what will bring you closer to your heart's truth.

Many blessings to you all on this sunny, winter day in CT.   My wish for you is to embrace the doubt to find your way to inner truth.

Love to you,
