We really are always learning how to improve the way we decide. We are constantly making decisions all the time!!!
I very much hope to always develop my decision making skills. I hope to become more aware of all the different ways I receive information to make a decision; using my heart, gut, head and body, to inform me of what decision I want to make; to make them with more peace in my heart. This is definitely a time to practice. I have no choice but to continue to make decisions so… here I go.
When I say ‘develop’ I mean I want to make decisions with more certainty, confidence, and efficiency which I feel would partly come from my confidence with the signals my mind, and body and heart are giving me. So I want to be more sensitive to the signals that are always there; to be the clearest vessel I can to hear them.
Sometimes I feel no doubt with a decision, other times I feel lots of doubt. I acknowledge that there are so many decisions on a sliding scale of variences in perceived importance, significance and banality and am generalizing here, in wanting to address the times when I’m making a decision where I find myself in doubt.
There are so many facets to making a “simple” decision. We draw upon our beliefs, values, conscious and unconscious habits, our desires, our needs, our wants, our current state of mind and body…. It’s not that I necessarily expect the process of decision making to become easier or quicker, but that I want to feel more peace in my heart when I’m creatively deciding. I suppose this comes from me knowing who I am in that moment and what I want and what I value. Maybe it comes from me trusting that I’m doing the best I can and trusting that I want the best for myself and others. More so I think, this peace I’m wanting more often in this regard, comes from the knowing that I can handle whatever happens as a result of my decision; that I am supported by the universe and my ability to handle what comes my way.
hmm… I’m still pondering this.
I also suppose a good way to become more familiar with those times I feel doubt, is to also be curious as to how I come to other decisions with confidence. Getting to know one side by getting to know it’s other.
Do you have a particular way in which you make decisions? Will you share? How do you find the process of decision making?
I wish for you clarity in mind, confidence in heart, and wisdom in body.
