The Blocks Standing in Your Way of Manifesting Freedom
What's standing in your way of Freedom? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've identified 5 common blocks, based on conversations I have with my clients, prospects, and peers, that prevent all of us at some point from standing in our power and going after what we want. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let's reveal which are affecting you, so we can heal and move on!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1️⃣ Fear of Judgment could be seen as a projection of self-judgement. Before anyone else can criticize or condemn, you do so yourself -- likely stemming from insecurities. When we get in our heads and let the prospect of someone maybe saying something negatively about our latest project, we give them all of our power. It keeps us small and prevent us from freedom.
The Freedom Block is related to the solar plexus. It has to do with your personal power and it holds so many people back. We let others control and dictate how we show up in an effort to save face. But in doing so you are giving up so much more.
It’s time we take back our power -- those who judge are not our people. True loved ones will support you and if they’re like my mom, promote the heck out of you! It’s an illusion!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2️⃣ Fear of Failure: Are you preventing yourself from starting because you’re already playing out the scenario where you fail? First of all, there is no such thing as failure, only lessons and opportunities to grow. So if we shift our perception, we will see that there really is nothing to fear -- but I get it, you’re still feeling hesitant.
The fear of failure can be caused by other blocks such as low self-esteem or self-sabotage. It puts a full stop to achieving our goals, paralyzes our progress, and causes inaction.
This Freedom Block is connected to our throat chakra, our ability to express ourselves fully and authentically. It’s really about us not being connected to our own source energy and realizing that the world needs us, and it’s doing us and others a disservice by not starting and sharing our gifts and talents with others who NEED you.
Many of the most successful companies out there have had several shifts and pivots, redirections, “fails” but those all lead them to great successes. We don’t know what will work until we try and if you have a message & mission to share there is far more potential for massive impact than failure.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3️⃣ Low self-esteem affects our confidence and self-worth, making us feel just plain bad about ourselves (hello, pity party for one). It impacts our ability to give and receive openly because we don't feel we deserve it, nor do we have the guts to ask for what we want.
This Freedom Block is related to our heart chakra! Your resistance to freedom comes from feeling unworthy, in other words, not believing in yourself. The inner critic is a vicious one, and it definitely runs the show at the best of times. This may also affect how we interact with others as there is an underlying feeling of being awkward, unlovable or incompetent.
Love is the highest frequency for attraction -- when we focus on what we love we become a vessel for giving & receiving. This attracts so much abundance and light.
Through conditioning and external experiences we may pick up this belief that we’re not good enough but that’s not true at all.⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4️⃣ Lack mentality sees things as finite, like money, time, health, or happiness for example. There is a deep underlying belief that there is not enough to go around. It limits the infinite supply of joy and abundance that is available to us. Essentially a lack mentality cancels out the positive potential of any given outcome through fear-based thinking. Thus perpetuating scarcity in one's life.
This Freedom Block is connected to the root chakra, which has to do with feeling secure, stable, and abundant. When this block is operating, our own lights are dimmed as we give our attention and focus to a lack of what we have in relation to others.
This is one of the most common, and deeply rooted, blocks. It feels downright icky to be stuck in a spiral that you feel you can't get out of. It will typically manifest in the following ways:
feeling jealous, judgemental or resentful towards someone else's wins
fear of taking risks financially, even if you know it is besta constant need to do more
the tendency to compare & compete
having a glass half-full mentality
problem-oriented (struggle to find solutions)
feeling like there is never enough
An abundant mindset is crucial for longevity & success -- it builds confidence and resilience, it will allow you to see the light through darkness, it will continue to guide & support you even when times feel tough.⠀⠀⠀⠀
5️⃣ Self-sabotaging habits are tricky because they often occur unconsciously so we aren't even aware we are doing them. These are self-inflicted behaviours that stand in our way of freedom like: negative self-talk, overworking, making excuses, procrastination, drugs & alcohol, and one you’re probably familiar with - the feeling of Imposter Syndrome. They keep you in a vicious cycle where we basically become our own worst enemy.
This Freedom Block is connected to our sacral chakra, where our emotional & creative energy comes from. When we are distracting ourselves from our highest purpose, we are neglecting our gifts & cutting off the energy flow to our most connected & aligned self.
Perhaps you’re distracting yourself with substance abuse by spending your weekends getting blackout drunk instead of spending the time working on your business. Or maybe you are making every excuse in the book as to why things aren't going the way you want -- whatever the reason you are putting off Freedom, girlfriend!⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Take the Freedom Quiz to find out which block is standing in your way of Freedom and how to overcome it with actionable tips instantly.
