“I feel like I’m on the right path so far, but I feel like there’s something in the way. Is there something or someone blocking me from reaching my full potential?”
First, know that you are always on the right path. You are always exactly where you are meant to be. Although there is a destination our Soul is heading towards, there are many paths laid out for us to have experiences that will contribute to our evolution along the way. You are meant to experience every encounter, every situation, and every challenge that comes your way. This includes every “block.”
I once heard that the idea of us having “blocks” is an illusion created by our own mind. I delved further into this theory and read from Catalyst Yogi that, “When it seems as if you have come up against a block in your life, it means you have come up against a block in your own mind. You may need to let go of self-limiting beliefs you have about yourself, other people and the world.”
Why do you feel that there is something or someone blocking your way? Is it because you are faced with challenge after challenge and feel like those challenges are meant to hold you back? What if those challenges are there to help you learn a lesson that will uplevel your life and prepare you to better handle a future event? Is it because you feel like you get to a certain place in your life and then don’t know where to go from there? Do you feel resistance when taking the next step or even feel clueless to what the next step is? Even without knowing the answers to these questions, I will take a wild guess that the person holding you back, is you. There’s something within you that is creating resistance towards moving forward. Often it’s fear. Sometimes there is a lesson the Universe wants you to learn - a lesson that you must learn if you want to proceed. Sometimes it’s because you think you want one thing, but your Higher Self knows it’s not in alignment for you, so your energetic vibration doesn’t match and you think you’re “blocked.” However, the reality is it wasn’t meant for you- at least not at that time you want it.
The Eight of Fire literally fell from my Dreams of Gaia tarot deck. This card symbolizes transformation through action - change on a physical level that brings freedom and joy.
“If you need to make real changes in your life, now is the time to do it. No more thinking, no more planning, and no more dreaming. Now is the time to act and transform yourself or your life, or to take an idea, a possession - something in your life or space- and repurpose or transform it. Regardless of what action you take of what change you make, once experienced, it will bring you a sense of freedom...of weight lifted. You will feel reborn and will face the future with a renewed sense of purpose.”
My advice is to go within yourself if you really don’t know what your limiting beliefs are towards reaching your full potential. I think automatic writing is a great way to communicate with your Higher Self! Ask a question and just start writing - you might uncover some really deep-rooted fears that are holding you back. There are many different ways in which you can work to release your fears, but you will have to if you want to keep going. Then, take action! Commit to being uncomfortable; commit to continuing even if you don’t know all of the “hows.” Just commit to yourself and you’ll see that those blocks were just in your head.
