Everybody knows someone who has had or is going through a mid-life crisis.

It starts in their 40s. It’s a time in their life when they’ve had some accomplishments in their career, most had a family, and a nice home but it doesn’t seem to be enough. 


This statistic describes this as by what is out of character for someone in their 40s, acting like someone half their age. They buy a sports car, have an affair, change jobs, they are looking for something new and different.


Deep down they feel they are missing something. It’s “the grass is greener” syndrome. If you ask someone why they are having a mid-life crisis they really won’t have a definitive answer. All they know is that they were tired of their life the way it was. 

PEOPLE’S REACTION TO A MID-LIFE CRISIS … People on the outside who view somebody having a mid-life crisis see it as someone who is attempting to regain their youth. Someone who is looking for the excitement they remember experiencing in their 20s. 

WHEN YOU MISS THE SPIRITUAL MEANING OF THIS ISSUE … The person having a mid-life crisis want’s one thing, excitement. When was the last time you experienced excitement in your life? It really wasn’t in your 20s. If you want to regain your youth you must go back to the time you arrived when you were a new person. Everything was exciting, everything was new, you were curious about everything and learned by self-realization. It’s the time when you had a connection to us. We presented you with new things that you chose to follow or not. You lived in a state of bliss. People having a mid-life crisis are not in a state of bliss.

WHEN YOU DON’T FOLLOW YOUR GUIDANCE …The reality is you are not happy, you have more stress as a result of your actions or inactions, like the choices you may dread making regarding family and friends … but for what? The exciting part of your life can happen at any age. It happens when you are fully connected and present in the moment. It’s spontaneous. Are you happy and excited at this moment? What makes you happy or excited? Or what is it you want that you don’t have? Do you believe that having something in the future; a new spouse, more money, or a new car will make you happy?

YOUR DECISION TO FOLLOW YOUR GUIDANCE … having a connection to your guidance is everything you need and nothing you don’t. It’s as basic as going back to the time when you were a baby, a new person, when you felt you could achieve anything … and restart from there. First, look at how you can make your current life better without discarding it. Each time you evaluate a segment of your life, ask yourself, is this what I want? Am I receiving guidance to continue moving this way or not? Ask yourself, why do I think my life will change if I just change the stuff in it? Accumulating and balancing all the stuff in your life isn’t much of a life, let alone an exciting one. You may not need to change the people and stuff; you may only need to change how you perceive all of it. That will only become clear when you listen to the guidance we are always sending you on a daily basis.

HOW IT WORKS: A mid-life crisis is the result of compromises made early in their lives. One compromise led to the next, and the next until one day they hit their 40s. That’s when it all caught up to them, but they are not conscious of what caused it, so they continue to mindlessly do anything to fill that void. What really needs to happen is to go back to the beginning, to that first compromise. You had a choice and you made it. Now that you are older you have the power to make a better choice. My Guided Journey© take you there. It’s your second chance to get it right, so you don’t miss out on what you feel is still missing, the spiritual reason for the mid-life crisis. ~ Linda Deir
