We all get stuck from time to time. Seriously, it happens to every human being, no matter how enlightened they might think they are. Sometimes, it can feel like something just out of reach – something that once discovered, will make everything easier. At other times, we’re not aware of being stuck at all. Instead, we’re left wondering why things aren’t just working out.
Well, in today’s video, I’ve got a quick and easy hack for you (aren’t those the best??). A simple little but incredibly powerful trick you can use today to help you get unstuck quickly and easily. In fact, it’s so simple, it’s unbelievably easy to forget (part of the reason I made this video is to help remind myself…)
So, if you’re up for a little easy reality hacking, today’s video is for you.
Hello my happy shiny puppies, this is Melody Fletcher and I’m coming to you today from the Sheraton Downtown in Phoenix, where I’ve spent the last couple of days being part of a mastermind group, and meeting with some old friends.
I had a thought yesterday that I wanted to share with you, a little epiphany, one that I’ve had many, many, many times, and one that is so easy to forget the value of. And so, I thought you know what? I’m going to share it with you; but I’m also going to immortalize it here in video, as a reminder to myself of just how important this can be.
Change your geographic location to get new insights
And that is the sheer value, the incredible power of simply leaving home. And, I don’t mean leaving your house; I mean leaving home, like going someplace where you don’t live, changing your geographic location, changing your environment completely. And I’m not talking about just going down the street to the store or going to the park. These can be helpful, but I’m talking about really getting out of your environment completely. So, going to a different town, going to a different country even; going to a different environment.
Every time I do, I get tons and tons and tons of insights. I was talking about this with some of the members of my mastermind group and we all agreed that there’s such power in coming to a different place. There is, of course, a lot of power in masterminding, in meeting with other people, and in having those great conversations, but just changing your environment already creates a ton of aha moments all on its own. Especially if you’re stuck on something, if there’s something you’ve been chewing on, something that you haven’t been able to really even get a hold of or define. Coming to a different geographic location for a couple of days, especially if you’re going to take a little bit of time to think and to ponder, and you’re not, you know, spending the entire time distracting yourself in various ways, it can be so incredibly powerful.
From the moment I got on the plane, I’ve began to have tons of aha moments. About halfway through the plane ride, my brain already started to get access to clarity that I didn’t have before. And, the reason for that is, that by changing your environment, you are changing your perspective; and we all know how powerful it is to change your perspective. So, this is a really, really easy thing that we can all do to get more clarity.
So, if you’re stuck on something and you want to be able to get a hold of what it is and even shift it, or if you just want to receive new insights, because maybe it’s been a while since you had a big download, and you’d like to create a little bit of a catalyst for change (I’ve certainly done that), you can just go to a different place. Now, if you can’t afford to go to another country, if you don’t have the time or the money to do that, you can certainly go to the next town over, maybe a place that you haven’t been before. Take a train ride for an hour, have an adventure, or go to a different city, for a couple of days or for a weekend, and just allow your brain to acclimate to that different environment, to that different perspective.
Getting a new perspective
You’re seeing things you haven’t seen before. Even just taking a different route to work, one you’ve never taken before, taking a walk through a neighborhood that you haven’t been in before, already starts to kick this off. Just changing your environment a little might not be as dramatic as continent hopping, but it can already provide a great deal of clarity.
Again, I’m sharing this with you because I’m hoping it’ll benefit you; but I’m also immortalizing this message for myself, because it’s something that can be so easy to forget when you’re working away passionately (particularly, if you’re somebody like me who works from home). I tend to be super, super focused, and when I come out of that state, it’s a really good idea for me to actually go away somewhere, and kind of do a little bit of a reset. I take a look at my priorities, take a look at my next steps and what feels right for me. I tend to get a ton of information, a ton of clarity, which can lead to shifting any resistance I might be experiencing, which I couldn’t really get a hold of before, or which I didn’t even know was there.
So, hopefully, this has been helpful to you. Leave me a comment below on how you’ve used changing your location to shift your energy. Also, what are some other quick and easy ways that you’ve found that help you get clarity? I’d love to hear from you, so leave me a comment below. Until next week, I’m Melody Fletcher and I want to send you all smooshy, smooshy, happy shiny puppy hugs, and thank you for bringing your light to the world.
