What do you do when you have a setback?

Someone was asking me about what it means when you take action towards what you are wanting – and things seem to be working out and then things change, and there are a few obstacles in your way.

To me obstacles are always signs that there is some lack of clarity, or somewhere that I am not fully aligned with what I am wanting. The hiccup gives me clues to what this might be.(it can be a while before I fully see it like this – but that’s what’s always there when I am ready and willing to look).

This was my suggestion to them:

“I think if I were in your shoes, I would first sit with the feelings that were coming up about things not working out. Really feel them in my body and let them be there – breath into them and let me body do whatever it wanted. Or find whatever other way I know that works for me about releasing the feelings that this is bringing up.

Then I’d see what felt BETTER from where I was – not necessarily good, but better and sit with that for a while.

Then, when the time felt right, I’d get into as far into my Vortex as I was able in the way that felt best to me – walking the dog, listening to music, listening to a great call, dancing, etc

Then I’d look for more clarity on what it is I’m wanting – contrast is always a way of showing more clearly what you do want. So I’d sit with that and see what clarity came up for me. There are often things I haven’t thought of as possibilities that show themselves to to me. Or inspiration that just pops into my thoughts – or I may realise that I didn’t really want what I thought I wanted.

To me hiccups are always signs that there is some lack of clarity, or somewhere that I am not fully aligned with what I am wanting. The hiccup gives me clues to what this might be.(it can be a while before I fully see it like this – but that’s what’s always there when I am ready and willing to look at.

Hiccups always have a message in my experience. Hope you get greater clarity after yours.
