How to Overcome an Existential Crisis


You know that feeling that causes you to question your current circumstance and wonder if there’s something better for you? It may be disenchantment, a lack of motivation or boredom that prompts you to ask the question.

Sometimes asking that question can result in experiencing a full-out existential crisis, where you find yourself wondering whether your life has any purpose, meaning or value.

And while this all seems very sad and dreary, the truth is that existential crises are good – it’s a sign that your soul is telling you that you’re in the wrong place and you need to take action to get yourself back on path.

Overcoming an Existential Crisis Through Energy Healing
The chakra that is associated with understanding one’s life purpose is the crown chakra. If you are going through an existential crisis, chances are that your crown chakra is closed or imbalanced.

Other chakras that are associated with existential crises are the third eye chakra, which is the energy centre of insight and the throat chakra, which is the energy center that allows you to express your purpose in the world.

Working on these chakras through energy healing can assist with providing clarity regarding your purpose and what steps you need to take to live a soulful life.

Here are some other tips on how you can overcome an existential crisis:

Pay Attention to Your “Haunting Hobbies”
You know those things that you love to do but feel like you have no time for them and yet they continue to possess your mind? Craft space in your life to follow through on them. If you feel like something is missing in your life without them, chances are that they are meant to be part of your life path and purpose.

Consult with People You Respect
Sometimes when you lose faith in yourself and have a lack of mental clarity, the people who are dearest to you can remind you of your uniqueness and what you can contribute to the world. Also pay attention to any compliments you may receive from them or others – if someone tells you that you are good at something, consider whether it’s a skill or activity that you’d like to pursue and develop.

Get Away
Sometimes when you are caught up in the day-to-day activities of your busy life, it’s hard to take a step back and give yourself a reality check. Plan a mini-getaway or even a day where you are far-removed from your usual activities so you can contemplate on what you need to do to get things moving in the direction you’d like.

Have Patience
Change takes time so be sure to focus on the silver lining in your current circumstance while you await the fruitful return of your action steps.

Remember that it’s in your control to end your existential crisis – so embrace your inner power and create change!
