It may sound strange, but often people seek or wait for permission before moving forward in their lives. I would be willing to bet that, in one area of life, or another, you’ve been stalled around permission too. As you already know, inner conflicts may occur around all sorts of ideas, experiences, and goals. We could explore how the conflicts arose and why they’re present, but why? That takes forever! It’s so much quicker and easier to just resolve the conflict.
Most internal conflicts are resolved easily. One approach is to give yourself permission to either experience something (i.e. healing) or to otherwise move forward in some way (i.e. change). Throughout my career, I’ve noticed that conflicts tend to cluster around certain issues:
- Being present to and focused on the moment of now (rather than the past or future)
- Personal responsibility – obligations – sacrifices – other
- Power/Being powerful/empowered
- Sex/sexual expression
- Letting go
- Being oneself/Self expression
At times, there may be a “need” for permission from oneself. Other times, the “needed” permission is from someone else, like a parent, child, loved one, or from the surrounding community (including your faith community), the world at large, or even from a spiritual source (i.e. God, Source, Universe).
Have you been waiting for an apology from someone before letting go of an old hurt?
Have you been waiting for acknowledgement or gratitude from someone in your life?
Have you been waiting to see what other people are doing, saying, or feeling before committing to an opportunity?
Have you been waiting to be ready for something or someone?
If you answered yes, then could you choose to be open to your own healing, acknowledgement, and opportunities now?
Consider for a moment the areas in your life that you are waiting for permission. Maybe you are seeking permission before starting a new project or relationship, ending a non-productive behavior, or simply being more you.
Regardless of where and how you became stuck, could you simply give yourself permission to move forward anyway? Could you simply choose to be present to more good in your life? Could you simply choose to enjoy your life now, just as it is?
Take a moment to revisit the listed areas where inner conflict often exists. What opportunities exist for you there? Could you give yourself permission to let go of the habits, beliefs, ideas, and patterns that have held you back from the joy, happiness, peace, and celebration that you truly deserve?
Once you’ve given yourself permission to move forward, it will be easier to focus on the action steps that build momentum, personal growth, and success.
