How to get more clarity around what you want?

What do you want for your life and your home? Those can be big questions with no easy answers. It can take some time to come up with the answers that feel right for you. It is definitely a process which can also change over time.

The more we focus on ourselves, honour ourselves and take time for self care, the more we will know what we want. The answers are already there if we are open to listening. 

Here are some ideas that can help:

Spending time alone! Doing activities that are quiet and help you to look within. Having a daily practice of yoga, walking or any kind of physical activity that gets your body moving. Taking time to think (without your phone) Noticing what comes up for you while having a shower or on your drive into work.

Journaling! Getting your thoughts down on paper helps with getting them out of your head. It allows your inner self to have a voice. It can help with feeling more aligned with your thoughts and emotions. Write down your intentions and goals, look at them often and see what fits and what doesn’t. 

Visualization! Listening to visualization exercises which take you through a personal journey imagining different scenarios and being aware of what comes up. It can take some practice and is really helpful when it comes to setting your intentions and goals and developing insights. 

Meditation! is a great way to tap into your inner wisdom. It is amazing how much meditation can help with feeling calm at other times in the day as well. It can also help you to relax before falling asleep. You can focus on just breathing and see what comes up, just witnessing, not judging. Pay attention to the thoughts that come up. You could even do a walking meditation focussing on a question or a situation you are feeling challenged about. 

Declutter Your Life and Mind! You didn’t think I would leave that out, did you? Whenever, you are trying to get clear, its a good idea to work on sorting, organizing and decluttering any or all areas of your life and mind (physical and emotional clutter). This clutter can really get in the way of our attempts to move forward in our lives and to be able to manifest what we truly want. 

These are just some of the ways that we grow and learn to trust ourselves, our intuition and to have more clarity about what we want for ourselves in our homes and in our lives. 

I also did a short YouTube Video on these ideas.

  1. I love ALL of the suggestions you made. Taking time to care for ourselves includes some quiet time to self-reflect and tap into our feelings and thoughts. Doing things that nourish our souls, like meditating, journaling, doing yoga, being in nature, and enjoying our own company, go a long way toward grounding and feeling calm. It’s from this place we can find a path forward.

    I’m a regular practitioner of these activities and know it makes a huge difference. They have become essentials.

      Hi Linda, I am not surprised that you are a regular practitioner of these activities. I forgot about being in nature and have really been missing that in my life. I can’t walk as far as I could before and tend to stay on even ground at the moment. Thanks so much!

  2. I think sometimes we are so busy just staying on the treadmill that we fail to slow down, pause, and consider what we actually desire. Not only is it not wrong to consider what you want, but it is actually helpful.

    I love your suggestions for ways to enter into that self-reflection. I love to pray, journal a bit, do yoga, and be outside (when it isn’t cold). I’ve found I need to cease from being productive to allow myself the space to dream.

    Identifying priorities is so worth the effort because having them really does make decision-making so much easier.

      So true Seana
      I really think it is getting harder to slow down and to actually pay attention to our own thoughts and feelings due to social media. It can really be uncomfortable for a lot of us to to shut our phones off. I forgot about praying and I think that is really important as well. Thanks so much for commenting.

  3. Self-care is super helpful. These ideas are lovely and a great reminder for everyone in a turbulent time. Thank you for the ideas.

  4. You suggested great ideas, sometimes we need to slow down to find a way to help us get to what we want. Thank you for sharing.

  5. These are all excellent tips. I tend to not want much of anything for my home; if it’s not a practical tool (like a keyboard) or something to stare at (book, device), I mostly ignore it. Your tips for gaining clarity are stellar; they all guarantee focusing on areas we tend to avoid because we’re concentrating on whatever in our homes or lives is shouting for attention (because it’s broken or lacking).

    To all of your stellar tips, which are great for turning inward, I encourage extroverts like me to turn to a trusted sounding board, like a BFF. I don’t ever come to important decisions on my own; I either know what I want immediately, or I gain clarity by having deep pro/con discussions with a close friend. Slow down, but know yourself as to whether turning inward or outward works better for you.
