love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
I know I’m in a rut when
… I don’t feel like being around people. People annoy me.
… I don’t want to talk. I shut down and stop communicating.
… I feel like I’m not living up to my “shoulds.”
… I focus on every single thing that’s not working in my life, no matter how disproportionate it is to the joys and successes.
… I eat a lot of carbs.
…I am angry, even if it’s not demonstrative.
… I’m not motivated to go to church or read or write.
… I feel resentful.
…I feel like I have nothing to contribute.
…I feel used up and taken for granted.
… Doctors not being able to heal me is a push for me to heal myself. Maybe it’s a sign that this is the lesson I am to learn.
…Things are always better than they seem.
.. Energy and issues in my relationship stem from me not putting that same energy into myself. When I take the focus off my relationship and onto myself, things seem to improve.
… Activities that allow me to be in a zone when I’m purely feeling and not thinking (processing) raise my energy and vibration levels. These include prayer, exercise, deep breathing, meditation, sex, being in nature/outdoors.
