The roadblocks that stand in front of us in life are there to help us. Really, I know - it probably doesn't feel that way, but its true. The more we face, the more we see things differently in life and understand things that the average person does not. Yet, I fully understand the frustration in dealing with all of this and wondering how to move past it.
When dealing with blocks in life, it is important to allow yourself to be there with them in peace. As hard as it may be for you to be at one with them, the more you allow them to overpower you, the more power they hold over you. The more power they hold over you, the more they rob you of precious strength to make the changes you need to in life. Hence, allow yourself to be there with them in peace.
The blocks in life are going to come up at various points. You can guarantee that they will show up. It is up to each person individually as to what they do with theses things. The part that will hold us down is the part where we give our power over to these moments.
Realizing that roadblocks in life are sometimes difficult and slow to change can be helpful. After all, if they are a major block to bigger and better things in your life, you most likely won't change and move them in 1 second. They will take some time and allow yourself the time to figure out creative ways to move these roadblocks out of your life. Trying to do it all at once, is not going to be advantageous to you. In fact, it most likely will just exhaust you.
It might also help to reframe how the roadblock looks in life. While it may appear impossible to move and too difficult to attempt, we may just need to take another look. Our eyes may be tired or our glasses too dirty to see through, but all too often, looking at the roadblock from a different angle gives us a different perspective. Sometimes the change in perspective is what is needed to move things through in our life.
While we may wish to have this block removed from our life, often there is a reason we have invited it into our life to take up permanent residnecy. We hold on to these blocks as if they were our only friend, all the time wishing they would disappear. It is imperative that we be honest with ourself and ask ourself what these roadblocks do for our life. There is often something they give us, even if it is a negative pleasure. If we are honest with ourselves, we can then ask ourselves if we are ready to let go of it in our life.
I wish I could write that this process is easy and here is step 1,2,3 but I know it is not always easy. I know it takes time, perserverance, and a willingness to see things in a new way. It isn't about how fast you can get rid of the roadblocks in life, but what you learn in the process. How you evolve in new awareness and consciousness as a human is the key, not in how quickly the process happened.
Give yourself a break and give yourself encouragement along the way, because some of these blockages in life can be quite difficult and challenging. Go easy on yourself because if you beat yourself up to badly, it will just tire you out when you begin the heavy lifting part of the process. Rests are welcome and breaks are expected. Just give yourself the permission to adequately take care of yourself through this process. If you don't do this, no one can or will do it for you.
