Clarity is a very powerful tool.
When I talk about clarity, it’s all about having a clear understanding about what you want and what you’re working towards.
This works both internally, as a feeling, and externally, in our ability to communicate clearly about what we want and need from others.
What does clarity feel like to you? See if you can access this feeling and lean into it right now.
A well-developed sense of clarity will help you stay on track regardless of what’s going on in your life.
Most people approach clarity as a fleeting feeling that they don’t have any control over – it comes and goes, feeling amazing while it’s there and horrible when we can’t find it.
It’s important to realize that clarity is something you can cultivate.
Clarity is available to us in every situation if we’re willing to look. All you need to do is use the information around you to understand more about what you want.
When times are tough, it’s actually really easy to think about what you want – when you’re surrounded by what you DON’T want, you’ll receive some great information about what you’d prefer instead. Don’t get all worked up about not having it yet. (Remember Acceptance?) Realizing what you’re working towards and putting some intention there is a very important step.
Challenging emotions can become useful here, too. They’ll alert you when unhelpful patterns are playing out in your life, inspiring what you’d rather experience instead. They can highlight what needs to change about your life experience to cultivate the feelings you’d love to have.
This component has been essential for me when it comes to getting through hard times. I use clarity – my vision for what I’m creating – as my light at the end of the tunnel. My candle light in the dark.
And when times are groovy, clarity helps us decide which actions to take. More importantly, it can help us decide which actions NOT to take, and what to say “no” to.
Understanding what feels so amazing about the good times can help you cultivate more and more goodness in your life.
Here’s a video I made about Clarity, if you’re hungry for more.
Take a deep breath, connect with the highest version of yourself, and ask: What am I creating right now? What do I WANT to create? What will I see/hear/smell/taste/touch when I’ve succeeded?
Stepping into the feeling of what you want is very important. More on that next time.
