Riding a Roller Coaster of Emotions
Riding a roller coaster of emotions does not have to be the way to live. However, many people, once out in society, tend to get thrown around by societal ups-and-downs and the result is mental confusion. These people can be upbeat and positive around positive influences and down around the negative.
As we become a master of our situation and personal energy, we stay clearly tuned into our positive, clear inspiration and insights from within and from our inner guidance or angels. We learn to be in charge even when there is a storm blowing around us.
Clear Facts Cut Through Mental Confusion
First, let’s delve into the basics of confusion. To start, you can acknowledge that sometimes mental confusion and negative attitudes can be difficult to release. But, with understanding and determination you can do cut through to your innate positive sense of well-being.
To start, give yourself credit for not just the experiences you’ve had, and then learning from them. Now, you can move forward. In clarifying what you have learned from your life so far, you apply your growing wisdom to handle any confusion more astutely, or avoid it altogether.
Why Mental Confusion?
Purpose in life is important. So, if a person does not have a sense of their purpose here on planet earth, they are more susceptible to confusion.
And, it’s important to acknowledge that everything in the material or physical world is a means to an end, not an end in itself. When people lack a bigger picture of life and themselves, they can get stuck without direction. They are unclear about what they need and want to be doing with their lives.
They may not realize that life is about learning, growing and sharing. This sharing, or outflowing, or giving helps us learn and grow. In addition to boosting our own evolution, we help others on their journey, too, although we may not be aware of it.
Having said that, when individuals have not clarified their purpose for their life and how they fit in the world, they can flounder in confusion. Inadvertently, they may find themselves cascading into pitfalls, being overly influenced by confusion, or taking unfulfilling detours.
World of Spirit
When we leave the physical world and transition back to spirit, we take our state of mind with us. While on planet earth, we can gain greater clarity about ourselves as we accomplish, learn, grow and do what we are here to do. Our life is an opportunity to evolve and build on this expanded state of mind as we continue on our journey.
If we do not have a sense of our real selves and what life is about, when we leave the physical world, we continue on in this confused state. Religions refer to souls in this state as unclean spirits or earthbound souls. They can remain in, or around the physical world even though we no longer have a body. This confused energy is represented by the ovals below the stick figure near the top of this page.
What is Limbo or “So-So” Energy?
People can be in an in-between state of consciousness. So these are the individuals, while not immersed in confusion or negative emotions, can sit on the fence much of the time. They may not be negative, but they aren’t clearly tuned into their soul being and inner guidance, either. And, they are not fully living the life they came to planet earth to experience. This state of consciousness can lapse into dull contentment, apathy, lack of initiative or commitment. They can also experience restlessness and impatience.
Some individuals in this limbo state may be well regarded, but they have not taken time to understand or follow what they feel is best for themselves. They may lack enthusiasm and true fulfillment.
Moving Beyond Limbo and “So-So” Energy
People experiencing limbo and “so-so” energy may be existing in one of the states of consciousness shown by the lines in the diagram at the top of this page. If they are taking charge of their life and their attitudes, they are moving up in their state of mind.
As these individuals become more tuned into their true feelings and follow their inner feeling, they rise above limbo and live more frequently in their groove. A key to their moving forward is that they made a decision to follow what they feel is important in life.
As a result, their energy is higher and they are often connecting with their spiritual helpers or angels. They are on an upward spiral with positive spiritual forces working with them.
How to Keep Our Energy High?
How to rise above mental confusion and limbo? That’s a big question and, ultimately, we each have our own answers.
One of the best solutions to banishing mental turmoil, bafflement and negativity is to seek out and work with clear facts—your “4Ws” of what, when, why and why. (The “who” is you!).
In working with the facts, you may want to ask yourself questions like these:
- What is really going on here?
- When does situation tend to happen?
- Where does this happen or where is it best to take place?
- Why is this happening?
Working with Facts
Working with facts sounds so simple, yet it’s powerful. In fact, certain professions, such as journalists, are trained on getting the five “Ws” of who, what, when, where and why. Maybe you have learned to ensure your facts are straight, especially in areas where confused has taken hold?
I (Patrick speaking) like to write out my four “Ws” for certain situations. By writing out my facts, I ensure they are clean and clear. This run-through of my 4 “Ws” saves time and helps avoid mental confusion. Just think of an occasion where you did not have the correct time or location. Sometimes, it’s a good idea to re-check our facts, such as timing, location, etc. Have you ever had hunches to re-check information and that hunch was right on?
These are simple examples, but they apply for all kinds of situations in life. For example, you can take situations from your work, home, school life and evaluate them from your 4 “Ws” viewpoint. That way, your clear facts help you cut through problems and negative sensations so you can arrive at solutions.

What Kind Of Thoughts Do You Dwell On?
Should you dwell on thoughts that are not positive or solution-oriented, you can attract mental confusion. Do you remember a time you kept thinking about someone who triggered anger or a situation that you were annoyed about? How did that feel?
On the other had, think of an experience where you changed from being annoyed or having a problem mindset to finding a solution or getting involved in something else. Was that better?
Because you are a sensitive soul you pick up on different kinds of outer energy. This does not mean you need to take on this energy and make it part of you. You can let the negative go by and stay on your own track.
Also, while immersed in the daily routines of life, you can keep returning to your bigger picture of who you are and why you are here. You can continue to take the high road as you learn and grow in your state of awareness.

A key to avoiding confusion and remaining connected within is relaxation. The ways to remaining relaxed and avoiding pressures and stress are numerous. You can find additional resources in this website and through our programs, newsletters and webinars.
One example of relaxation is taking time out daily to detach from the world, either through meditation, prayer or simply “quiet time” and deep breathing. Another routine used by many is to get away periodically, especially to a natural setting or where others are also relaxing and connecting within.
