Stuck in a Rut?

Do you feel like you're trapped in a rut with a near-constant sense of frustration? When you don't know how to get back into the flow of positive energy, you can experience anxiety, depression, sadness, and fear from this sense of being unwillingly anchored to an unhappy life. You don't have to live this way! Take our quiz to figure out why you're stuck and what you can do about it.

When you make daily choices about how to spend your time, who do you think of first?

I check in with my higher self to make sure my goals align.

I think about what best serves my loved ones.

I have so many commitments already, I just keep to the calendar. I don't make many fresh choices.

How do you feel about change?

I usually prefer routine.

I like to change things up occasionally.

I love to keep things fresh, and I get frustrated when they're too monotonous.

Do you make time for yourself each day?

No, I don't take time for self-care.

I make time for self-care occasionally.

I do activities like meditation and journaling, but I keep circling around the same frustrations.

How is your activity level?

I'm so busy I barely have time to think, but I feel like I'm not getting anywhere.

I go through the motions each day but feel listless in my down time.

I have some leisure time, but it gets away from me. I feel like I get stuck and spin my wheels.

Can you pinpoint the source of your stagnation?

Yes, there's a definite anchor holding me down.

Yes, I know what to fix but I don't know how.

No, I have no idea why I feel this way.

Take a Quiet Retreat

You're feeling stuck not because of stagnation but because of excessive business with repetitive activities. The best way for you to get out of this rut is to slow down and step back for a moment. Start saying no to commitments that don't make your heart sing and find time for yourself to do some soul searching. Conduct a life audit and analyze what you're giving precious time and energy to. Take a mental health day, turn off your devices, and meditate or journal on your heart's desires so you can return with a refreshed life map.

Make a Change

You feel stuck because you've allowed a powerful area of your life to stagnate. This may be a relationship, job, home, or family dynamic that simply isn't working for you. It's time to cut ties with the anchor that's keeping you mired. Let go of what doesn't serve your highest self and make room for new and wondrous things to enter. If you're not sure where to start, consult a psychic for help identifying the blockages in your life and finding a positive path forward.

Create a Vision Board

You feel both stuck and aimless. You're having trouble identifying your goals, and without a dream to pursue it's impossible to move forward. Get a large piece of paper or create a blank digital canvas and start cutting out and pasting images and words that inspire you. Let your passion and joy carry you along through the project till you have an inspiring image of what you want to do with your life. Then, get to work charting actionable steps to help you achieve it.

Find Support

Though you feel impossibly stuck, you have a good grasp of what's holding you in place. Whether you're in debt, in a dead-end career, or living in a home that needs major repairs, you're quite aware of the problem. You just don't know how to proceed. It's time to reach out for help, though that's not your natural inclination. Search for resources at the library, join a support group, start working with a therapist, or contact a phone psychic. Taking that helping hand will make all the difference.

Get Moving

It's impossible to be stuck and moving at the same time. You've let yourself sink into a place of stagnation and despair, and you won't get out till you get up and go somewhere. Play some powerful music in your earbuds and go for a run, dance it out in your living room, or dedicate yourself to a daily yoga practice. If you have access to a beach or pool, swimming is an excellent way to let the water wash your anxieties away so you can keep your movement going and carry it forward into the process of working toward your other goals.

What to do When You Feel Stuck

If you’ve been feeling stuck in a rut, our soul-searching quiz has hopefully revealed some useful strategies for getting unstuck. Over the years, many clients have turned to our psychic advisors for spiritual guidance and practical coaching when they’ve lost their way or feel like life has become an endless treadmill. It’s not always easy to untangle the many webs that can make our lives feel constricted. Sometimes all it takes to see the path forward is the intuitive insight of a friend or advisor, but more often what’s needed is a combination of objective 3rd party insight and inner reflection.

If you’re feeling like you’ve lost your way, a journey of self-discovery may be a good starting point for your soul-searching. There are many psychic-created resources available to assist, including this guided meditation podcast and these provocative questions to re-examine and rebuild your sense of identity. When you release habits, people, and patterns from the past that no longer serve you, you create a space to find your calling and discover what lights you up inside and out.

If you’re feeling like you’ve put everyone’s needs before your own, you may feel as though you’re treading water just to make it through another day. Self-love is not selfish, and self-care is crucial for having the capacity to give. Whether it’s for a few minutes each day, or you’re able to carve out some more meaningful time for yourself, taking care of yourself so you replenish your own energy.

Finally, if you’re feeling tired or overwhelmed, yet not clear where your time and energy is going, you might find it helpful to conduct a life audit. A life audit can reveal whether the way you prioritize your resources like your time, mental capacity, emotional energy, and other resources aligns with what is most important to you. Realigning where you spend your energy to account for unfulfilled needs can help raise your vibration and get you unstuck.

How to Release the Stuck Energy of Low Vibration

  1. Raise awareness: notice that it is there. This is a critical first step!
  2. Breathe into the space stuck energy is showing up (throat, gut, etc.) Learning about the chakra system and how to balance your chakras can help you identify the places you hold onto negative energy and release it.
  3. Ask the energy to talk with you. For example, if my throat is hurting or restricted, ask your throat questions. What are you trying to tell me? What am I missing?
  4. Be quiet and see if you are aware of receiving any messages. We may get messages in multiple ways, such as feeling, knowing, hearing, seeing, or even tasting. Some messages may take time to be noticed. You can also ask for clear signs or messages from the Universe that you will not miss or be confused about.
  5. Talk to your Angels or Spirit Guides to help you with this process. You can enhance this process through meditation, prayer, yoga, and journaling as well as using crystals, essential oils, and whatever objects connect with you at a deep spiritual level.

If you need additional guidance getting unstuck, give a psychic advisor a call or chat. We are here to help!
