3 Signs You Are STUCK Spiritually & Psychologically!

Are you Spiritually, Mentally, & Emotionally Stuck?

It is crucial that we always evaluate our spiritual, mental, and emotional state. Our inner world affects every other area in our life: our acts of worship, our relationships, how we approach our day, and our over all quality of life!

Without checking in with ourselves and engaging in reflection, we may end up being spiritually, mentally, and emotionally stuck for days, months, and even years without realizing!

To help you check in with yourself, I wanted to share with you 3 signs that may indicate you have been spiritually, mentally, and emotionally stuck:

1. You Feel Disconnected from Yourself Being disconnected from ourselves is a key sign we are stuck on a spiritual, mental, and emotional level. If you are disconnected from yourself, you may have a hard time identifying your needs yet alone authentically communicating them to God or others. You struggle to know what you are feeling and you do not feel settled. You do not feel a sense of inner peace. And you may find yourself constantly seeking external sources for validation (i.e. people's approval, excessive shopping, food, entertainment) and anything that will distract you from the emptiness and lack of nourishment you may be feeling internally.

2. You are on Cruise Control Do you ever feel like your life is just on repeat, like you are going through the motions, but not really feeling anything? Do you wake up in the morning with a "blah" attitude, ready to just repeat the typical routine you engage in daily? Do you have very few days in which you wake up feeling alive, and deeply grateful and excited to maximize the day that God just gave you? This is a sign you may be spiritually, mentally, and emotionally stuck. You feel like you are doing everything you are supposed to do but do not feel internally nourished, and wake up the next day to do it all over again. You feel desperate for a change or shift that will awaken you to your life. You wish you felt the spiritual, mental, and emotional benefits of the tasks and actions you engage in daily.

3. You Have a Hard Time Being Present When you are disconnected from ourselves, you are disconnected from the tools within you that you need to be present in your life. As a result, it is very easy for you to be physically present in your conversations, tasks, meetings, and even at home with our family, but not feel like you are fully engaging or benefiting from any of those interactions. Being present for long periods of time may even make you feel uncomfortable, and you may find yourself unable to sit still without reaching for your phone or scrolling through your social media news-feed.

Now that you have read about these three signs, do any of them sound like something you are experiencing? Take a moment to reflect!

If they do resonate with you, then you may be spiritually, mentally, and emotionally stuck, and as a result, you may not be receiving the nourishment you need to improve your relationship with God, others, and maximize your potential! These signs may be calling you to make changes that will empower not only your spiritual health, but your mental emotional health as well.

It becomes imperative then that you take the steps to renew the way you view yourself, God, and your path on this earth, to awaken your heart to your life and what God put infront of you, to put effort to stop living on cruise control, and to start gaining the nourishment you need to feel more enough, whole, and empowered!

This life is a gift. Every day we are given should not be taken for granted. We are not meant to live our days on cruise control. We are meant to live with a heart that is nourished through its connection with its Creator and everything it encounters!
