Are you in a state of discomfort?

What does being in a state of discomfort mean? Well, from my point of view, it can be a mental or bodily disturbance, such as, you can be annoyed at a challenging occurrence in your life and you don't know what to do about it or you are facing an emotional situation but you are too busy to pay attention so it gets out of control.

Discomfortisn'talways bad; in fact, it is often a warning sign to let you know that something needs to shift. Some of us have a high threshold for pain yet I have observed lately that many clients that we work with experience a low threshold. In fact, their poor mental outlook often triggers something physical, which seems to escalate depending upon their conscious desire to either stay stagnant or shift.

There is a direct correlation between stress, anxiety, boredom and even loneliness and the physical symptoms of pain. Many different emotional triggers can cause the onset of pain in the body and if not addressed can lead to serious complications.

So what are we to do about it you might ask? I can only speak from my personal experiences and hope that you might be willing to examine or re-examine your life and how you react to it.

There is an old saying: Fake it till you make it! That statement can be applied to various aspects of your life. I have told many clients over the years to change their perception and instead of continually saying that their glass is half empty, start looking differently at your situation and see that it is actually half full.

If you could say on a continual basis, I feel good and fulfilled, everything in my life is working out you will start to believe it and as you believe it, what ever it is that you are seeking will start to become attracted to you. The Universe cannot give you something if you yourself do not believe you deserve it. It is as simple as that! That is why I say, Fake it till you make it. For example, if you are seeking a new client who has the money to pay for your services, start seeing that client coming to you. Visualize that the phone is ringing and you are being introduced. A brand new referral has just called and asked to partake in your services. Place a value on your services and believe that you are deserving of receiving that amount of compensation. You have value and worth but if you do not believe that you deserve or are capable of receiving that kind of fee, you are actually sending mixed signals to the Universe and consequently, it cannot perform for you the way your heart wants.

If you do nothing else, there is one point I want to make: learn to speak to the discomfort in your body and ask it questions because when you do that, you will receive answers. If you are feeling stressed or pressured to do something that you really do not want to do, take a step back and ask yourself, "What is the root cause of these feelings and what can I do to shift gears and change them." Please remember we are all a work in progress so I encourage you not to stress that you may not be getting it right be kind and patient with you. Your mind, body and spirit will thank you.
