4 Questions to Ask Yourself to Cultivate Clarity

My dear friends,

For so many years in my life, I found myself constantly seeking clarity. I’ve always wanted to know and to be certain of every aspect in my life. This dynamic led me to often feeling frustrated and confused, because the simple quest of seeking clarity oftentimes feels elusive.

When so much of life is uncertain and unknown, it can feel natural to want to grasp tightly to the things we can control and be sure of. But, in my experience, the energy of clinging and grasping never serves me, but rather leaves me feeling exasperated and overwhelmed.

What I’ve learned over the course of my life is that clarity is not something that can be found, but rather cultivated. And, clarity is not stagnant, but fluid.

Rather than holding tightly to concepts and ideas that we find to be true in fleeting moments, we can cultivate a relationship with clarity that ebbs and flows over time.

My relationship with clarity has changed drastically over time, it no longer feels elusive, but rather, an innate part of me that I tap into when I need reassurance or affirmation.

This week, I want to share with you four questions I ask myself often, that help me to cultivate that deep relationship with clarity that I used to yearn for. I hope they help you and serve you in cultivating your own relationship with clarity in your life.

  1. Who am I?
  2. What do I really, truly want?
  3. What matters most to me and what do I value?
  4. What impact do I wish to have in this world?

I ask myself these questions in quiet and in stillness and allow whatever answers to come through. I also like to have a journal close by to write down any new or insightful answers that come through. Use this practice as a friendly conversation with yourself, and remember to release any judgment of the answers.

xo, Michelle
