8 Affirmations for Uncertainty: Embrace Curiosity, Be Okay with Not Knowing

8 Affirmations for Uncertainty: Embrace Curiosity, Be Okay with Not Knowing

Today I’m sharing some affirmations for uncertainty to help you swim with the mysteries a little more gracefully than you did the last time. Embracing the unknown is a sign of trust in something larger than yourself. It’s a practice that reveals answers to questions you didn’t even know you had.

“Life unspools in cycles, some lovely, some painful, but in no predictable order.” — Anne Lamott

We’re not meant to know everything, certainly not all at once and not according to the perfect timelines in our heads.

It pays to be open to the mysteries of being alive. One of the gifts is that you learn to relax in the middle of chaos.

I’ve learned a whole lot more about the light by being open to the darkness than by enclosing myself in light.

These affirmations for uncertainty are reminders that the answers will come when your soul is in perfect position to receive them, and that’s only if you’re meant to know…

8 Affirmations for Uncertainty to Encourage Curiosity, Trust & a More Joyous Experience

1. I am in the process of exploring who I might be.

I am learning, shedding old ways and unnecessary weight. I am expanding into new territory. I am remembering how to see the world through curious eyes and a heart open to another way.

2. “I give up freely what is no longer serving me. I release it to create space for what inspires me.” — Unknown

I gently make my way back to the present moment and see what is not serving my forward movement. The things I have been holding on to, I give up to the Great Mystery. I step into new, open space, where Inspiration can find me.

3. Where I think I am lost, I am ready to feel found.

I honor this confusion as a messenger of greater clarity. Every answer grows from its question. I open up to the answers, and if they’re not meant for me right now, I offer space for the questions to be as they are. To be free from toxic obsession is a gift beyond understanding.

In times of uncertainty, what you want is clarity and resolution, but what you get instead is resilience and depth.

4. “I have the freedom and power to create the life I desire.” — from The Maven Circle

Uncertainty is my sign to embrace all that has yet to be written and to start fresh with a new story that I begin writing today.

5. I believe in my ability to figure things out.

I am capable and everything is trainable. I give myself credit as I try new things and practice new skills. I am brave enough to tap into my capacity for change.

6. I am ready to encounter opportunities I never thought were possible.

Possibilities are all that I know.

“Choosing to be curious is choosing to be vulnerable because it requires us to surrender to uncertainty.” - Brene Brown

7. I am curious enough to appreciate the vastness of life.

There are beautiful skies far above my natural vision and a solid foundation far below the surface I stand on. The beautiful and the awful is all part of a larger picture. It is not my job to paint the landscape, but to find relief in my awe at just being part of everything.

8. I find revelation in my stillness.

I am patient and paying attention and though I find that much is hidden from plain view, there is plenty being revealed.
