Lost? Find yourself by doing THIS

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

David… I HATE when someone asks me what I want. My brain literally goes blank when faced with that question. I have tried everything to get a clear picture of what I want and where I want to go, and all I see in my mind is static. Is there something I can do to help me get clear?

Neagle Code Answer

Thanks for the fantastic question!

Most people don’t spend enough time looking deeply at their own life.

Here’s what I suggest:

Take an entire day, and go sit in nature where it’s quiet.

(If you’re in a big city, and can’t find a quiet place… get everyone out of your house for the day, and spend the entire day just sitting alone).

Get yourself a notepad, pen, or pencil. (Don’t use the computer for this exercise.) Something magical happens when we put pen to paper.

Just sit there.

…And start writing whatever comes into your mind.

It doesn’t matter how crazy or off topic it seems… write it all down.

I’d suggest giving yourself a full 12 hours to do this exercise. Start early in the morning, maybe after you’ve showered. (The shower is more metaphorical than anything else. It’s like you’re cleansing yourself and your mind.)

Prepare yourself a cup of tea, coffee, fresh greens, or whatever you like. (No alcohol.)

Sit down, and be quiet. Be present. Pay attention to whatever is running through your mind. As different ideas and topics go through your mind, write them all down.

As you do this, you’ll begin to find a sense of “order” coming into your mind.

Your thoughts will become more orderly and clearer. They’ll become more directed.

Once you get the most “common” thoughts out of your head and on to the pape… you’ll find that new thoughts start coming to the surface… thoughts you’ve never had before.

You can ask yourself a question.

You could ask your subconscious mind, “Please show me what I want to do in life.” “Show me what my next goal is.” “What do I really desire?”

“Reveal to me what I want most. What do I want to be, do, or have?”

You could even drawn three columns on the page:

“Be” in the first column.
“Do” in the second column.
“Have” in the third column.

Write down anything that comes to mind in each column.

Eventually, you’ll start coming up with things that inspire you, things that bring you freedom, joy, happiness, and excitement.

As you write those things down, you’ll open the door for more of that “road” to reveal itself to you.

  1. This method is simple yet yields profound results when I used it in the past. One of these days I must do it again. Thank you for the reminder

    I know my calling has something to do with speaking, telling my story along with solutions that worked for me along the way and writing, which is a big passion of mine. I will pinpoint my message/topic and build another business

  2. Thank you David. I have done this exercise today…couldnt do quite the 12 hours, so am blocking out the weekend to continue. For me, the biggest win so far is that after many hours I am able to put all my jumble of thoughts together some sort of order, and it feels do – able!!

    So grateful for all your help.
