I'm stuck - Universal Laws of Attraction & Blocked Energy
Question: I have been following the Universal Laws of Attraction for a while now. Things are pretty good in my life, I am happy most of the time (I think) and things are fine, nothing bad is happening, but I am not making much progress on my biggest dreams for my career and relationship. I just don't know how to move forward, I feel like something is blocking me and the Universal Laws of Attraction just keep giving me more of the same old, same old, same old sh## every day. I must do something different, but I don't know what. Do you have any ideas?
Real Life LoA Answer: I'm really moved by your question, it has sparked something big within me, I'm very glad you were inspired to write, thank you. I have been thinking about the answer to this question for the past few days, even before you asked it, because different examples from among my own family and friends (as well as my own life, and some things I've seen on TV lately) have all had a similar theme. Here is what is coming forward:
If you want to know what is blocking you, look at what YOU are blocking. What are your secrets, what are you hiding from others, what are you ashamed of, or embarrassed about in your life? What would you rather that other people not see, or know about you?
These are the things that have their hold on you, that have power over you, and that are sub-conscious (or unconscious) patterns that are simply running in the background of your life without question. And these are the things that are actually gaining more steam in the form of what you create for yourself through the Law of Attraction. It's because keeping the secret, and contorting your life to protect yourself from letting other people see, or know, that about you takes a tremendous amount of energy! And, anything that takes your energy and focus, even sub-consciously, IS re-creating itself over and over in your experience. ...The harder you work at "pushing it away" – the faster other experiences with similar vibrations and feelings are drawn to you.
A different area to check is the parts of your life where you are suppressing anger. Maybe you are trying to convince yourself that it isn't that bad, or maybe you feel it is wrong / not socially acceptable to be angry about it, or feel that you have no choice in the matter. But again, trying to push it down and keep it under wraps will almost always take more energy than gets devoted to appreciation. It's hard work to try to ignore anger, and because it is hard work, the Law of Attraction is getting a lot of signals to magnify that vibration, so it does. You end up getting more things to feel angry and resentful about (including the experience of NOT having your dreams fulfilled.)
Another clue could be: "What do you wish your life looked like; what kind of image of yourself or your life are you trying to project to the world?" This is not something you need to "own-up to," to anyone except yourself, but, the places of your life that you are wishing were different are the places where you are not currently appreciating yourself authentically. When you are not appreciating yourself, or your life, you are not in the vortex, not in the flow, not aligned with the truth of how Source Energy / your own Inner Being sees it, and you are not attracting what you DO want with the Law of Attraction.
And, your energy blocks are not necessarily about the thing you think it is about, in fact they very rarely are – if you are sad and upset that you do not yet have the relationship you desire, the block will almost never be about relationships. Rather, it will be about whatever else is "not right" in your life (besides the relationship) – your secret shames, your 'not completely accurate' projections, your embarrassing little secrets, the areas where you have suppressed anger, or those things that annoy you every day. ...That's where you need to look to find out what is blocking you, and consciously shift, change, or re-create a new truth (and a new focus) for yourself!
Basically, when you are really honest with yourself, what do you wish were different about your life? If you could wave a magic wand and change your existing reality to a "new and improved" version, what would you change? List them. Take out a piece of paper right now and make a list of all those little things that annoy and irritate you, that you want to keep hidden from yourself or others, that you don't want anyone else to know about, that you are angry and upset about – write them down! ...THOSE are the areas where you are holding yourself back from your dreams.
Now, pick one, and start to change it. That's it. That's all you have to do. Start to change one of those things for yourself.
And, while you are doing that, remind yourself that you are NOT the same person you were when that situation was first created. YOU have evolved, YOU are a different person now, YOU are ready to empower yourself to expand beyond that old situation now. I guarantee you are a different person now than you were then – you would not be reading this site if you weren't. You CAN do it!
When you empower yourself to either:
1) Start changing those parts of your life yourself right now, or
2) Start authentically appreciating them exactly the way they are, or
3) A combination of both options at the same time,
then you will be truly liberating yourself, and you WILL feel the difference! When you take this one tiny step of empowerment, at that moment you will be back in the flow and properly aligned with your life, and you will be vibrating more in tune with Source Energy and the Law of Attraction for the attraction and manifestation of your REAL dreams!
And the BEST part of this approach of is: By taking a step toward changing something that is within your control, you are instantaneously taking your mind OFF of any perceived failures in desires that haven't manifested YET, and empowering yourself with "solution thinking" – it doesn't matter what subject it is in. In fact, it is even better if what you start focusing on is NOT in the same area of life that houses your biggest desires right now. Solution thinking in one area of life, particularly when combined with the satisfaction of small successes and motion forward, is attracting solutions to every area of your life!
Blessings to you as you empower yourself to move forward on your magnificent journey. I invite, and encourage you (and all others who are reading this) to share any thoughts you have around the idea of taking control over the hidden blocks you have uncovered and shifted – I look forward to delighting in your success with you!
