What I know for sure at this point of my life is that some things will remain stuck and we won't be able to get past them until we, straight up, face them. There are some things in life that until we allow ourselves to feel and pass through, will act as blocks to our best self and overall happiness.
In other words, there is pain that cannot be healed, relationships that can’t mend and feelings that won’t settle until we directly and whole heartedly face them. Until we face certain blocks in our life, they will continue to show up and create problems and resistance for us. Whether we are consciously aware of them or not.
These blocks have a way of showing up when they definitely are not invited. This creates hassle, stress and circumstances that we rather not deal with in our lives. It's difficult for things to work out in our favor when we're unable to look at the whole truth of the matter.
………..Man, I hear you. It’s a really hard truth to face something that creates a lot of discomfort. I know that I’ve, literally, wished in certain moments of my life that I can push a button and circumstances would change and the pain would go away. Like STAT.
With that said, here are my questions for you:
Is there anything that you’re (consciously) avoiding and not facing in your life?
If so, what is it?
Are you ready to say goodbye to it?
Your self awareness is huge. Admitting and acknowledging that you may have certain pieces of your life that you just don’t want to deal with -SLASH- face is a feat in itself. So, cheers to you for being willing and open to look at this.
What I can say is, from my experience of working with clients and helping them through their blocks, the fear of a situation is usually greater than the reality and truth of what it brings.
Generally speaking, us humans usually think that things are far more “scary” than they really are. When we begin to trust this concept and practice facing less scary circumstances in life, we start to build the confidence and courage to go after the bigger stuff.
The possibilities for AMAZING things happening for us when we begin to confront, face and deal with uncomfortable emotions is a huge reward. With truly living comes pain. It’s just a reality that's true if we're going to put ourselves out there, try new things, love and go for it. Accepting that it’s not always going to be smooth can help us to get through the rocky matters.
The way to get past most things in life is to go straight through them. Feel them. Learn to accept them. With acceptance comes the ability for stuck emotions to flow, which helps them to eventually pass and sit in a much more peaceful place within.
