Sept 23 Blog: What Should You Do When You Don't Know What to Do?

Published by: janean strong on 09-23-2018

What Should You Do...
When You Don’t Know What To Do?

I recently heard or read that when you don’t know what to do....
Just do something, sometime!
(from my recent guest, Karen Sperling)
So here I am... doing something because I didn't know what I was going to write about this week.
Sometimes, when we don’t know what to do, we don’t do anything. We get stuck, unable to move forward. Ever feel like your feet are firmly planted in cement?
The challenge can be that there are too many options to choose from or perhaps the path forward isn’t clear.
I have often felt that the reason I can’t make a decision is because I don’t yet have enough information. Most of the time if I have more information the choice will be obvious. Sometimes it's best to let go and 'ask' for higher guidance. I like asking the Archangels.

Often the best choice just hasn’t presented itself yet. The important thing here is not to try to make something happen. When you force something to happen it usually backfires. If roadblocks are constantly coming up it’s time to look at whether or not this is the best direction to move towards. I find that when I am making the best decisions for myself I am 'in the flow'. Opportunities and people show up with ease and when that happens I know I am on the right path.

Another aspect to look at is whether you are moving away from something you don’t like/want OR whether you are moving towards what you want. It makes a huge difference in your ability to create your reality in the way you would like.

I have often shared, and I use this myself, that if the decision isn’t clear between several options, check in with your body. The mind can rationalize any decision but the body will always tell you the truth. Lie down. Do some deep relaxing breathing. Think about something that makes you anxious or feel crappy. Your body will feel uncomfortable and muscles will tighten (especially in the abdomen and chest). Now think about something that makes you feel happy and good. Your body will relax. Use these as your guideposts and think about your choices one at a time. Which one causes your body to relax and feel good. That’s the best highest choice for you!

Good luck! And remember... just do something! It is better than doing nothing!

Know Nothing, Access Everything w/ Karen Sperling
Karen Sperling accesses shifts and changes through Good Listening and creating a state of At-Ease. Our world is constantly in chaos, creating change. Everything in your life can be chaotic at times and is constantly changing. It’s the natural way of life.
In a STATE OF AT-EASE you can shift how you perceive and deal with every concern, issue and interaction. You are already there. Karen helps you hear yourself and others, to notice what is available in an expanded state of awareness and to heal.
Karen said: “It has been an enormously stressful time and boy, I hope I can practice what I preach…"

When people comment that I do so much (which I don’t feel I do), I always say, “Just do something, some time”. For 30 years I have belonged to a service Ashram that takes care of hungry people in the streets, people with AIDS and addictions. I learned from that community to be present in the streets, hospitals and hospices and to make food and feed people. Over the years, I have monthly, weekly or daily made meals and walked the streets and Venice Beach Boardwalk, having the privilege of talking to homeless people, learning from them and loving them. I took in 5 African American children whose mother died of AIDS and have been their care giver, support and comfort zone for the past 25 years.

Karen Sperling also has a successful career as a writer. She was the first women in this country to write, produce and direct feature films and the first to hire an all woman crew in 1973. She has written screenplays, novels (published by Doubleday), a Broadway musical about the first woman to run for President of the U.S.

As an educator, writer and publisher she developed a unique series of interactive children’s books to encourage children’s creativity: - “Where every child is an artist and a story teller”.

Your Healthy Yummy Recipe

Awesome Pizza Crust

I love homemade pizza and this is my favorite crust. The original recipe is from “Artisan Pizza and Flatbread in 5 minutes a day by Jeff Hertzenberg and Zoe Francois. I have adapted it to suit my taste. I used to use all whole wheat flour but the texture really is better with some Italian “00” flour.

This makes 2 pizzas. The size depends on how thick you like your crust.

1 1/2 C + 2 T lukewarm water
1/2 T yeast
3/4 T coarse salt
1T coconut sugar (or sweetener of choice)
1T Olive Oil

2C White Whole Wheat Flour (Organic is best)
1 1/2 C “00” Flour (from Italy)

Mix first 5 ingredients in a bowl or food grade lidded container that isn’t airtight ( I put a little hole in my lid to let gas escape)

Add in the dry ingredients. You can use a stand choice...or your hands.
Cover loosely and let rest at room temp for about 2 hours. The dough should rise and collapse.
Then refrigerate and use within 10 days. Can also be frozen.

Preheat oven at 450 for 25 minutes.

Use 1/2 of dough and roll out to desired thickness. Place on parchment paper on slide onto pizza stone in oven and bake for 5 minutes.
Add sauce, toppings and cheese and bake for another 12 minutes or until done.
