I find myself extremely bored all the time. My job is boring, my relationships are boring, my life is boring. Even the things that used to excite me are now just mundane and repetitive. If I think about what I want, all I can really come up with is “I want to be happy” without really knowing any specifics.
I guess what I really want, is to know what I want. I have tried yoga, meditation, teachings of Abraham, The Sedona Method, brain entrainment.. nothing seems to help me get to the next level, and out of the mediocrity.
What am I missing?
I suspect it is love.. but then why am I not allowing it into my life?
Is it because I don’t love myself?
Well then how do I accomplish that?
I know I’m not alone.
You are not alone
When you say that you have “tried” yoga, meditation, Abraham, The Sedona Method – does that mean that you took a class or two – “practiced” it once or twice or 100 times, than decided it wasn’t working and then gave it up?
Also – by your answer – are you also saying that while engaged in these practices you weren’t able to move up in vibration – even a little bit?
Could it be instead that while actively engaged in your practice of choice there was a shift in how you viewed your life experience – but the shift didn’t last – and you found yourself again feeling bored with life?
Sitting in a state such as boredom can become a habit – and one that “feels” difficult to step out of. But it’s not difficult – it is simple (though not always easy) – it really is just a matter of choosing – over and over and over again – to feel differently.
My recommendation is that you keep it really simple – at least for the next 3 weeks. If you are up for the challenge I would like to suggest that you focus on just one of Abraham’s most powerful techniques…
Reach for Something that Feels Just a Little Better
For the next 21 days – each time you notice that you are bored or feeling down or frustrated with life – challenge yourself to reach for a thought that feels just a bit better. For instance, if you find yourself bored with your job you can tell yourself…
..At least I have a job
..This job affords me the opportunity to bring in $$ which I can use to purchase things that I like, like the meal I had last week with George. I enjoyed that meal – the food nourished me – body and soul – it would be fun to learn how to create meals that are nourishing and enjoyable – I think I may use some of this money I get to take a cooking class – yeah – a cooking class feels good….
“Reality” or even what you really intend to do has nothing much to do with this exercise. This exercise is simply about making the decision to continuously reach for a thought that feels just a bit better than the last one. Over and over and over again.
At first this exercise may prove challenging. The hole that you now find yourself in may appear deep – but keep reaching for that thought that feels better and it will become easier and easier.
Within 3 weeks of continuously reaching for thoughts that feel just a little bit better you will find that you have walked out of that hole and are beginning to decided which mountain you would like to climb.
And as for “what I want” I like your approach – “Intend Happiness” and let the Universe provide it to you in whatever flavor serves your Highest and Best Good.
Finally (for now) here’s Abraham speaking on the importance of reaching for that place that feels just a little bit better…
