Top 5 Ways to Get Unstuck

Stop unhealthy mind-body habits with awareness and these 5 tips.

Inspirational quote and photo of sunset

We all get stuck in unhealthy mind-body habits because they are familiar and comfortable. There is a part of your mind, I call the ‘comfort-seeker’ that actually wants you to keep doing what your doing and avoid change at all costs. Do you know why? Because the comfort-seeking mind thinks old habits mean safety and change means danger.
In order to over come the comfort seeker you must connect with your Authentic Sacred Self. You must remember the truth of who you are behind all the ‘programming’ and habits. You must connect with your intuition and your inner wisdom that gets buried under all the busy-ness and chatter of everyday living.

Try these 5 Top Ways to Get Unstuck

and Reconnect To Your Authentic Truth:

  • Slow down – Take a few minutes each day to slow down, breathe mindfully and just notice how you are feeling. Notice what thoughts are running through your mind.
  • Spend time in nature - Take walk or just sit and observe nature it could be in a park, in the forest, at a beach or in your back yard nature is close by if you take time to look and listen.
  • Scribble or journal – Write down how you are feeling. Write about what is bothering you. Write about how your day was. Write about anything! Putting it down on paper will give you a new perspective and often sparks insights. Try it.
  • Speak your truth out loud – Talk with a trusted friend, counselor or a coach. It is powerful when you share what you are feeling and have someone who is open-minded and nonjudgmental listening. You will have your wisdom and your authentic truth reflected back to you. This can allow for some amazing insights and shifts to happen!
  • See yourself differently – This means visualizing what you DO want instead of imagining the worst or draining your energy with worry. Visualization is a powerful tool that takes practice.

Are You Blossoming or Stuck In Fear?

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~Anais Nin

Have you experienced this?

I know I often do. There are times in my life when I could no longer remain tight. I just had to stretch, expand and blossom despite being scared and unsure of my next steps.

Like when I quit my career as a scientist to become a life coach, yoga teacher and earth medicine healer. It took the help of a life coach to keep me focused on the expansive energy of my dreams and vision instead of falling into the restricting energy of fear.

Our beliefs will determine whether we take the risk to blossom and grow.

If we believe it is too scary to try something new then we won’t. If we are stuck in thoughts of: ‘What if I fail. What if I look stupid. Or who am I to think I can do this? Am I good enough? Do I deserve this?’ - we will never dare to stretch beyond the stuck-ness.

All these restricting, fearful thoughts/beliefs keep us stuck in the bud instead of blossoming into our full beauty and potential.

What you spend your time thinking about over and over ends up manifesting in your life.

 If you want something different to grow in your life, you must plant different seeds, different thoughts in the fertile ground of your mind.

As you may know, what we focus on expands and shows up in our life. It’s the now famous, Law of Attraction. Since I spent a large part of my life as a scientist, I think of the Law of Attraction as ‘being in resonance’ with what I want.

Resonance can be described (semi-scientifically) as an increase in amplification (getting louder or expanding) when the an input into a system matches the natural or resonate frequency of the system. We can think of ourselves as such a system where, due to our thoughts and beliefs, we are vibrating at a frequency that is natural for us, our resonate frequency.

For example, when you blow into a glass bottle with just the right force and angle you get a deep sound because your breath and the bottle are ‘in resonance’. They are vibrating at the same frequency.

Similarly, we attract that which is vibrating at the same frequency. This adds to our being, amplifies our truth, and causes us to ‘resonate’ even more ‘loudly’.

A bottle can’t change shape, so it’s resonant frequency stays the same through time. We, as humans, can change our natural/resonant frequency by changing our thought patterns. If we want to attract something different, we must
 modify our frequency. It’s just like changing the dial on a radio to a different station/frequency to be the match to that of our dreams.

Most of us spend a lot of time thinking about, worrying about, what we don’t want. And, magically it keeps showing up. Oops! With each thought, we are vibrating with the frequency of that truth. We are tuned into the radio station of what we don’t want. Oh no!

By changing our thoughts and beliefs, we slowly change the dial, and begin vibrating at a different frequency. The more we spend time thinking about what we do want, the more we vibrate with THAT frequency. We then naturally start to attract what we DO want because we are a match to it. We are in resonance with what we really want and we amplify the results as we naturally begin to grow our dreams into reality!

Drained or Overwhelmed? Try this!

If you are a heart-centered compassionate woman, your health can easily be affected by people around you.
Do you often feel drained by events, people or life in general?

stop energy drains

You might think you need to change your diet, take vitamins, see a doctor or search for some other physical solution. Or maybe just a strong cup of coffee or tea. Hum. That sounds good. Doesn’t it?

Instead … I invite you to consider this: There is a deeper, longer lasting solution.

You can fix something on a superficial level by taking medicine or working on the physical level.

When we take it to a deeper level, the healing is more complete.

In yoga these levels or layers are called koshas. Pranamaya kosha is the next level after our physical (annamaya kosha).

When we give our attention to things outside of us (more often than we give attention to what is going on inside of us), we drain ourselves and give our power away.

Feeling drained is the result of being emotionally sensitive to external situations and people. There are tools and steps you can learn that will stop the energy drains. Wanna know what they are?

I have lots of tips and tools to cope with energy drains and strengthening your pranamaya kosha.

When I’m Stuck, What Do I Do?

I’ve not been writing here for awhile because I’ve been busy relaxing, having fun, and being a little cranky and unmotivated. Basically I’ve been feeling stuck.

Photo of tired kitty

I know. I know. Are you thinking, “But, Rena, you are the Get Unstuck Coach. How could you be stuck?”

But I do. I get stuck. I get cranky. And I get unmotivated.

And, in the end, I know the truth is – my thoughts about my life and the story I am telling myself – are creating my STUCKNESS.

Because – “Thoughts have power; thoughts are energy. You can make your world or break it by your own thinking.” ~Susan Taylor

I know this. Yet I forget and need to be reminded. So what do I do?
Usually a combination of these…

  • Write about how I am feeling in my journal.
  • Go on a walk.
  • Call a friend.
  • Take a bath, a shower or go to the beach - water gets you in touch with your emotions.
  • Coach myself through my 5 ALLOW steps.
  • Ask a friend, coach or my husband to coach me through the 5 steps. - This one is always the most effective!

When we have someone else take us through these 5 Steps, it opens us up and allows a quicker shift.

Me-Time – It Can Be Quick and Easy!

“To take time for myself, as a practice, not as an emergency, allows me to be my True Self and better able to receive.” ~Busy Mom and Workshop Participant.

Recently I hosted my annual workshop for women here at the Oregon Coast. We enjoyed tea, organic raw chocolate, quick and easy yoga and tons of tips on de-stressing and manifesting what you want in your life.

Photo of Rena teaching workshop June 2013

It was delightful to spend time with a group of heart-centered, amazing women. I shared my 5 Steps to DeStress-Manifest and we dived deep into each step with lots of tips for each one. (Get your own copy of the Guided Meditation of the 5 Steps here.)

The most important point I stress during the workshop is that Me-Time doesn’t have to take long. It doesn’t need to be a weekend retreat or spa-day. What does Me-Time look like to you? It can be done in just 2 minutes a day. The 5 Steps to DeStress-Manifest are meant to be done in only 2 to 12 minutes. You can feel refreshed, relaxed and re-energized in just a few minutes.

When you take 2 minutes for yourself to just breathe deeply and connect with your heart and your feelings, you shift your energy. You start moving the stuck-energy in your body and mind out! By allowing yourself 2 minutes you create a practice; a habit that then becomes a part of your life.

Each day I take 2 minutes to do a sun-salutation and followed by 2 minutes of meditation. I also take 2 minutes to visualize myself completing my top goal for the week. It’s quick and easy!

Manifestation tip: When you take time to visualize, write down and talk about what you want, it easily manifests. (You may have restricting beliefs that block the manifesting – contact me to find out more about how to get unstuck from them).

Me-Time becomes much more doable and more likely to be a part of your life when you put it into bite-size chunks of 2 minutes.

Try it!

Take 2 minutes each day to do one of the following:

  • Light a candle and think about what you DO want.
  • Breathe deeply.
  • Stretch your body.
  • Visualize your goals.
  • Pray.
  • Do some sun salutations (yoga).
  • Meditate.
  • Journal.
  • Sit quietly and listen within and around you – be curious.
  • What will you do for 2 minutes of Me-Time?

Please share – What will you do for 2 minutes of Me-Time?
