How to make peace with uncertainty
How do you feel about uncertainty?
In one of my favourite books, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Deepak Chopra shares this inspiring take on the topic;
“Uncertainty is the fertile ground of pure creativity and freedom.”
“The unknown is the field of all possibilities, ever fresh, ever new,
always open to the creation of new manifestations.”
Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?!
And I’ve learned from my personal experiments that an ability to allow uncertainty creates room for miracles and serendipity.
It also creates calmness of mind and peace of heart.
By demonstrating faith and trust in the face of the unknown – the realm of uncertainty – we get to reap the many, many benefits of surrender, a spiritual superpower advocated in so many of the world’s belief systems.
So, that’s the good news. ?
Our human brains are solution-seeking machines – we are hard-wired to want to know HOW?!
We like to have a sense of how things can happen, we like to have a map, a list, a plan – and for some of us, the more detailed the better.
So, it can be extremely challenging to embrace uncertainty, to sit with the unanswered questions, to let go of the need to know How?
I speak from experience.
Over the last couple of years, as my studies of the creative process have expanded into the realm of success creation and the art of manifesting, I identified this dichotomy as possibly my biggest, if not my only, challenge.
The need to be at peace with those three magic letters; T.B.C.
The ability to trust that all those unknown, uncertain, unanswered To Be Confirmed details would be resolved, somehow.
So I did what any self-respecting Sage archetype would do…
I devoted my study time to courses that helped me in this area.
I spent my reading time with books that share insights on this topic.
I used my daily walks to listen to experts who were masters at trusting, keeping the faith and making space for the magic of uncertainty.
And since it’s the nature of focussed attention to yield results, I discovered A LOT.
And I’m happy to report that my learnings have made an incredible difference to my work and my quality of life – on so many levels.
So, naturally – I want to share what I learned!
Because here are some of the benefits of a blossoming ability to make peace with uncertainty;
More time – there’s less need to be doing all the time.
More inner calm – an almost tangible serenity arrives with a deeper sense of trust.
More freedom – when we feel less need to micromanage outcomes, we’re free to do more of the things we love to do.
More confidence – there’s a lovely inner boost of esteem and empowerment when we can allow more uncertainty with less anxiety.
More resilience – challenging times are MUCH easier to navigate when we have a strong core of trust and faith.
More clarity – when we don’t feel the need to know the Hows, it’s easier to identify what we really desire, rather than stay stuck with what we feel is possible.
It seems my inkling that faith had been a missing piece in the puzzle was spot on, because it really does now feel that I have my pieces in place.
Of course, there’s still work to be done – and thank goodness, I LOVE my work!
Also, making peace with uncertainty is a practice, a lifelong journey of mastery – something we cultivate over time to deepen both the ability and the benefits.
But as I identified that faith, trust and belief play such a key role in our creations, along with the awareness that it can be a tricky business – I knew there would be other soul-seeking creatives who feel the same disconnect.
And so, I am thrilled to present my latest labour of love…
I’ve compiled all my insights on this potent topic – a collection drawn from my studies and experiments over the last couple of years, as well as all I’ve learned from my three decades on the creative path.
If I can short-cut your journey to a stronger faith, a deeper trust in life, and a heightened sense of self-belief, then my own journey will have been a double blessing.
It’s a short programme and an infinitely doable format, yet it contains some of the most potent and liberating gems that I’ve discovered about the role of faith in creative living.
It’s also one of my new Hybrid Online Coaching Courses – meaning that you get to access the material in your private learning portal, so you can go at your own pace, but you also receive Q&A opportunities, to get your personal questions answered.
I LOVE this Q&A coaching format, and it’s the easiest and most accessible way to work with me and enjoy the benefits of creative support.
So, if you like the idea of enjoying more peace, power, clarity, and freedom in your creative adventures, I hope you’ll take a look at my latest creation.
It would be such a joy to help you embrace the power and potential of these three magic letters; T.B.C. – the blessings of creative faith.
Because, that way, so much magic lies – just ask Deepak. 😉
The Creative Faith Collection is included in the Creative Well All Access VIP Pass, which gives you full access to my entire suite of online creativity courses, as well as all the new courses I’ll be bringing to life next year.
Just imagine what that leap of faith would do for the creative dreams that matter to you…
“In your willingness to step into the unknown…
in every moment of your life you will have
excitement, adventure, mystery.
You will experience the fun of life
and have an exuberance and zest for living.”
