The “Invisible” Cause of Our Struggles
Can we talk about blocks for a moment?
You know… those things… inside us…that get in the way of what we want to have or experience? Those things that are causing us to STRUGGLE?
If you’re working through any blocks at the moment, there’s something you need to know…
There are two kinds of blocks that we deal with: visible and invisible.
Visible blocks are, well, blocks we KNOW we have: specific fears, resistances, restrictions etc.
For example, after my marriage breakdown 5 years ago I KNEW:
– I was terrified to live alone
– I was allergic to getting a 9-5 job
– I didn’t have a reliable income source after having traded in my career to parent
…among a laundry list of other blocks.
And because I was aware of these blocks I could actively work through them, bit by bit, both on my own and by enlisting help.
But what I didn’t know at the time was that there is a whole other breed of block which is INVISIBLE. These are the fears, resistances and restrictions that I DIDN’T know I had.
Turns out, these blocks, because they are covert, are not as easily tempered or worked out, so they become many times stronger than the blocks we are conscious of. Largely, it is our invisible (or unconscious) blocks that are most strongly sabotaging us. Like ninjas in the night they create chaos and struggle in our reality!
So how do we deal with these pesky blocks?
We must BECOME aware of them! Shine a light on them and identify them…which brings them into our conscious awareness. That task, in and of it self, already has the power to vanquish them.
Use the following 3 steps to dig up your hidden blocks so you can stop inadvertently creating struggle and chaos!
1. Take a good look at your current life and identify:
What is not working?
What causes you pain or grief?
Where are you not flowing or receiving?
Are you struggling with money? Do you relationship always end in betrayal? Is your health taking hit after hit?
2. Take responsibility for creating that reality (unconsciously, of course!)
This is what its sounds like: “OK so I’m struggling, and I’m creating this reality without realizing it. Time to get to the bottom of it.”
You can’t change anything you don’t take responsibility for. If things are “happening to you” you will never be able to change them. Even though it might feel like you’re not personally creating what you experience…I promise you, you are. The sooner you own it the sooner you can change it!
3. Make new decisions about what’s true!
Our experience is always reflecting to us what we have decided is true about ourselves or the world. If we are struggling with cash flow chances are, we have decided that “money is hard to make” or “we can’t manage money.” If our partners end up cheating we’ve probably decided “we’re not worthy of love,” or “it’s not safe to trust men.”
We have a whole system of stories that we have made up as true (aka. our belief system) that we may not even realize we have! If you’re not loving life it means some of your stories are NOT true and need to be discarded.
Your entire life is SHOWING YOU what you have decided to be true. What you perceive and experience is dictated by your past decisions – most of which you haven’t even realized you’ve even decided!
Your past decisions are the invisible blocks causing you to make choices that keep you stuck in chaos and struggle! Don’t like it? GOOD! Start to decide what you’d rather see at what us true. Start deciding that “money is easy to make and manage,” and “that you deserve to be loved by a man you can trust.”
Remind yourself daily of what you now decide is true and you will begin to see the blocks melt away!
Unblocking you always,
