How to Make a Decision

Integrate the Four Bodies into Decision-Making

Some decisions can change the course of your future. To ensure you are making the highest decisions for yourself it is important to measure the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual pros and cons.

Below are some coaching questions that can help guide you through the decision-making process:

The Emotional Body

Which choice(s) inspire you the most?
What is your intuition telling you about each possible choice?
How does each choice make you feel (e.g., anxious, motivated, dread, uneasy, peaceful, etc.)?

What are the pros and cons of each choice emotionally?

The Physical Body

Which choice(s) promote physical wellness?
Which choice(s) allow for your basic needs to be met (e.g. shelter, safety, food, financial stability, etc.)?

What are the pros and cons of each choice physically?

The Mental Body

Which choice(s) are healthily balanced with reality?
What is the impact of each choice on your thoughts (e.g., creates empowering, draining, clear, or confusing thoughts)?

What are the pros and cons of each choice mentally?

The Spiritual Body

What choice(s) are most aligned with your values and beliefs?
What choice(s) promote a sense of meaning and purpose?
What are the pros and cons of each choice spiritually?

Making Good Decisions

Decisions that are aligned with your deepest priorities will help you to stay on a path that is right for you. Take time to ensure that your decisions reflect your inner truth.

Identify any external factors and/or outside influences that may be affecting your choices positively or negatively (e.g., friends, family, coworkers, obstacles, barriers, etc.).

Remember to focus on the things that are within your control to change. Although it wise to carefully consider all the possible outcomes to a decision, worrying will only cause an energy leak.

Make decisions based on love, not fear.

Making choices aligned with your passion and purpose will help you to create the life you want.

Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.
