E9: Spiraling in the Shoulds

Posted by Jaclyn Shaw on

“I did all the things I was supposed to do! Why didn’t it turn out the way I wanted?” 

If you find yourself asking this question, one thing is clear: You are spiraling in the ‘shoulds’. When you run your life based upon the things you ‘should’ do, you can only follow a rigid path of control and hard expectations. This is a path that is out of alignment with your true soul’s purpose.

Don’t fret, though! There is a way out. 

In this episode we explore where these ‘shoulds’ come from and how they create entire worlds in your mind. We break down how these shoulds are rooted in ego and masuline energy, and give you guidance on how to shift your energy to the feminine flow by allowing your soul’s force to lead instead. Finally, we talk about how to make space and gratefulness in your life for the shoulds that you must do, those everyday necessities, in order to make them realign in a better fit for you.

Tips to help you shift from masculine energy to feminine energy as the driver your life: 

  • When you wake up in the morning, don’t ask yourself what you have to do. Instead, ask yourself: ‘what do I WANT to do today?” 
  • Intentionally make time to incorporate some of what you want into your day. 
  • Take a look at your schedule and identify one thing that you said yes to based on a ‘should’... and cancel it. 
  • Insert gratefulness into the things that you must do during your day by changing your language. Shift ‘have’ to ‘get’. “I get to do this”.
