Feeling Lost and Don’t Know What to Do?

If you are depressed, lost, no direction and no clue….how will your entities help you?  They could let you know what you are supposed to do, how you are supposed to do it, when you're supposed to do it, and how long it will take….but their job isn't to live your life.  That is your job.  

Their job is to help you get to your destiny in the most expeditious way, guide, consult, assist, suggest, and be your friend.  They can help make things happen, bring you more opportunities, and help you hone your skills.  They can provide a general direction, but you are the author of your own biography.  You write the story, they just help along the way.   

They will not remove all obstacles and make life so easy that you just have to show up.  There will be trials and tribulations along the way.  That is how you learn and grow as an individual.  

But what if you have no idea how to live?  You wake up, shower, eat, sleep…etc.  But you have no direction, no goals, nothing planned in the future.  You don't know what to wish for because you don't know what to do.

First things first.  What are your goals?  Do you have an ideal future that you want to achieve?  Do you want to be a therapist, a nurse, or police officer?  If you have no idea where you are headed and what you will do, how will your entities know how to help you?  

Write a list of your goals.  You want to move out of your parents house, you want an Associates Degree, or you just want a job. Write them out in detail, and visualize your ideal life.

Now, how will you achieve those goals?  Well, in order to move out of your parent's house, you need a job and maybe a car at some point.   For those you need a job.  Go apply for jobs online, in person, or go to temporary services.  Private or State Government temporary agencies are great places to go.  Go to more than one.  And remember that some companies only hire through Temporary Agencies.  It makes it easier if you can apply for several jobs with one service.  Check out your local Department of Labor, as they sometimes list employment websites.  Go to job fairs and talk to the employers.  Ask them about the jobs available.  
Apply everywhere until you think your fingers will fall off.  Apply over and over again.  Don't get discouraged when you get turned down.  That happens to everyone.  I think the last time I really looked for a job I received over a hundred rejection letters.  It just takes one employer to say yes.  Don't get discouraged. 

If you plan to go to school, you need to research your ideal school.  Does it need to be small, affordable, or prestigious?  What tests do you need to take to get in?  Is your high school education and grades adequate to attend the school?  Have you applied for student loans?  Have you applied to go into the school?  Visit the schools, look at the degrees, services, and the programs available.  My school offered free tutors for certain disadvantaged individuals.  Every school tries to stand out from the next, which one will help you the most?  

Make sure the college is accredited, and find out the hiring rate of their graduates.  There are a lot of businesses out there today that pose as colleges, but basically they are money making schemes.  Many of them conduct school on-line, and they are barely accredited.    

Stick with the State Colleges or the Community Colleges that will transfer credits to the State Colleges.  I know we have a few "colleges" in my state that are money making schemes.  These schools are 4 times more expensive than a state college, you can't transfer any classes to a state college, and many employers refuse to hire individuals with degrees from these schools.  Do your research before you lay down any money.        

If this seems too daunting and you just can't take the first step and even write down your goals, maybe it is best that you speak with someone.  Counselors, therapists, social workers are a great place to start.  If you don't have any funds, you can check out local universities.  They have therapists in training that will fit all budgets.  

Or you could go to a non-profit agency for assistance.  A great place to search in the US is .  It's a list of non-profit agencies in your area that may be able to assist you.  Sometimes you have to search by the county and what you are looking for.  Sometimes you have to search by the city and state.  There are resources out there, sometimes you just have to search a bit more.

I always recommend human doctors and assistance along with your entities.  Especially when it is mental or physical issues.  Otherworld Entities work best in conjunction with other methods when it comes to physical and mental issues.  They can help to grease the wheels, but you have to get the party started.  

If you are dealing with obstacles in your life that are impeding your goals, sometimes it helps to get a 2nd opinion on the subject.  Talk to a friend, relative or a qualified professional.  

If you aren't sure what your goals are or what you should do, at least move forward in your life.  Go to school, get an education, and explore the world while you do it.  You can check out the Occupational Outlook that is published by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.  It gives you an idea of jobs that may be in demand in the future, a description of the job, the amount of money you will earn, and what kind of education is required.  You can check it out at   

Or you could visit your local University Career Center.  I know at University of Nebraska had a Career Center with all sorts of tools available for anyone that walked in.  You could speak with career counselors, take tests to determine the best job for you, and they can direct you to all sorts of information.  The Career Center even assisted students with finding jobs through job fairs and in-house interviews.

You don't need to start out big, you can start small.  Get a small job in a restaurant, department store, or a daycare center.  Get some experience and start building your resume.  

Step out of your comfort zone and expand the possibilities of your life.  You need to take the first step, but your entities will be with you along the way.  They help people out more than you think, but they can't live your life for you.  Go out there and live.  Enjoy your time here.  You are the writer of your own reality TV show, what happens is up to you.  What will your character do?
