Have you ever experienced hitting a wall, a barrier in your life –
leaving you feeling stuck? This can also brings up feelings of
anger, disappointment, or even betrayal. Although this appears bad,
there is good news here.
This situation means you are ready
for a breakthrough that only you can give yourself. A breakthrough
to the next level, to the next stage, to the next period of practice
All of us are evolving souls. We sometimes
loose that notion in our hectic human existence. We are continually
called upon to learn and grow beyond where we are. One of the
vehicles that can cause this to happen is to experience something
that forces us to move up and beyond. Usually, this is something
that in the moment is not comfortable or pleasant – like being
I used to think, “Well, I mastered this and that, and
now I am ready to just be.” Well, yes in many ways that is true.
However, the evolution of the soul may be calling you to go further,
to learn more deeply, to practice the path one more time to ensure
assimilation and integration into your being.
So what do we
do when we get stuck? One course that we are all familiar with is to
cry and say ‘woe is me’. (Honor yourself if this is where you are,
but let’s try not to stay here too long!) Another course would be to
ask God to lift it from you. This is good, but it puts the entire
burden of the responsibility outside of you.
would be to state that you are ready for a breakthrough. Ask for
guidance regarding what is limiting you at this time. The Secret has
reminded us that what we hold onto inside of us – creates our
experiences. This also includes limiting experiences. Ask, what is
my current thinking about this situation or phase in my life? What
is the foundational emotion that I am involved with. If we are
feeling disappointed or betrayed, for instance, than we will get
more disappointment and betrayal. Shift yourself and your situation
by changing your thoughts and emotions…thus creating an opening for
something new to occur. Once done, ask for your wall to be removed
so you can move to the next step, with an open faith that you will
be safe in the vulnerability that new beginnings bring.
vulnerability. That is why it is hard sometimes to remove the wall,
the stuck, and the block. When you do, you have to take
responsibility for participating in the next stage. Sometimes it
feels safer to stay in the stuck and blame your misfortune on others
However, all of us have the creative force within us, if
we dig down deep and pull it out, to trust that God and the Universe
will make it right when you go to a place where you feel less in
control, less knowledgeable, or less safe.”
fears one by one. Call in your spirit supporters to help carry and
protect you on the next leg of your journey. State your intentions
clearly for this phase. Muster up your core faith and trust that all
is in right order and all is already taken care of. This is key -
get out of your own way and let the Universe reply to your
intentions. Then joyfully enjoy each day as it evolves.
favorite supporters for this type of experience are Horse to carry
me when I am unsure how to go. Tiger for courage and confidence.
Archangel Michael for protection, and Owl for wisdom. Try
establishing your own transition team or council to help you during
different periods in your life. I assure you, they are ready and
willing to help. All you have to do is ask. Try calling a meeting
and get the team focused on your intention.
Most of all,
remember you have the power to breakthrough your barriers, whenever
they occur and no matter how difficult they seem. The definition of
breakthrough is “an act of breaking through an obstacle or
restriction; a major achievement that permits further progress.”
This does not mean going back to things as they were. The definition
of progress means “movement; development; unfolding; steady
improvement; to advance; to improve.” Soul’s breakthrough most often
means spiritual growth.
So, breakthrough is also about what
happens after the barriers are removed. It is up to you. When up
against a wall - choose to breakthrough and experience personal and
spiritual growth. I know that you will be glad you did!
