On Lee’s birthday, he had a cathartic awakening. He realized he needs to take himself and his talent seriously and do a course correction. I’ve had it happen several times too, and it has always produced profound change.
This type of awakening is the cathartic jolt that makes you wake up and get moving, often coming on the heels of feeling stuck, dissatisfied, and depressed about your life. Lee had this happen before, and now he needs to do it again – move his music career up a level. This knowing will give him the energy to do it. At 25, my awakening pushed me to go to graduate school, and in my 50s it resulted in needed changes in both my personal and professional life. The Aha that comes gets you moving forward.
Here are some hallmarks for knowing you are ready for a cathartic awakening:
YOU’RE SICK AND TIRED OF BEING SICK AND TIRED
Being dissatisfied, even depressed is often the catalyst that makes your awakening happen. Don’t be afraid of it – take it seriously and look at the why of your feelings. They are telling you something important. You are ready for something different. Change is always possible, it’s never too late. Lee and I have made big changes at several stages of our lives.
YOU SEE YOURSELF AND YOUR TALENTS MORE CLEARLY
If you look deeply at your feelings, you will likely notice that you are not following through with what you know is your truth.
You need to do something that honors what you want different in your life, a change that puts you in a better circumstance or one that highlights your gifts and talents. Lee and I have done both. It’s a huge relief to face your truth.
YOU’RE READY TO TAKE ACTION
Often when you’re stuck and depressed you don’t have the energy to make a change.
It’s the awakening that brings a catharsis, releasing you from the malaise that keeps you locked in a place you don’t like. Sit with yourself, journal about it and see what wants to happen. Your truth is just below the surface ready to be discovered, it will provide all the details you need to take action. Be still and let it bubble up.
