“Good decisions come from experience, and experience comes from bad decisions.” ~Unknown
If you are a second-guesser and you have trouble trusting your decisions, it’s important to remember, that you don’t have to make the right decision right now. Crucial for your own sanity is to learn to be OK with not knowing. By developing an exploratory beginner’s mind with the use of mental imagery, you get to step into, and try on each available option and its possible outcomes without any commitment. By practicing this you give yourself time to notice how each possible scenario makes you feel. This will help you to connect with and practice trusting your inner wisdom. The safest place for this practice is the testing ground of your own mind. So, when you are faced with a decision or choice, don’t give into the pressure to ‘make the right decision right now’. It’s okay (and extremely wise) to say, ‘I’ll get back to you on that’, or ‘let me sleep on it, and I’ll let you know”.
Learning to use your imagination to explore your options takes practice, but just like shampooing your own hair, certainly, you can do it yourself. But, it’s so much easier and more enjoyable when someone else massages your scalp; with that creamy lather. The same is true when it comes to employing the power of your imagination, with guided imagery.
Peace & Blessings,
