Clearing The Path
How often do we place roadblocks in our own way, blocking our path forward? Do we realize our self-doubt, negative self-talk, and our false beliefs, hinder our ability to live the best life possible? These roadblocks can be cleared from our path by searching within ourselves and discovering our true self-love.
We may think we are living by our true self-love, but the question to ask would be, how happy are we? Have we learned to clear the path from unwanted emotional blocks? This will allow us to silence the negative chatter, both mental, and physical, and begin to hear our authentic inner voice.
One thing many of us forget, is that we can control what thoughts we focus on, and how these thoughts impact our lives. This is where we begin the inner work of sifting through our roadblocks and releasing those blocks that are not founded in love. By letting go of these negative restrictions we allow positive energy to flow into our consciousness. In this positive state of consciousness, we are able to love ourselves without judgement, no matter how well, or how poorly, things are going in our lives.
With these thoughts in mind a conversation with my Inner Voice may give some insights into clearing the path to a better life experience. My questions will be in italics for clarity.
How do we create the roadblocks that limit living our best life?
Many roadblocks originate from insecurities you may have learned as a child. Through time, they build in strength, because there has been little effort, or desire to question or challenge their validity.
Often these insecurities are taught to you by those in your life. A comment by a teacher, or parent, can have a negative impact on your life if there is no intention of resolving the reason for the comment. In this case, there is little opportunity to learn and grow emotionally from the experience. The comment becomes part of your identity, and can create a roadblock in your life.
Our negative self-talk, self-doubt, and low self-esteem may have been caused by a comment made by those who claim to love us?
There is tremendous power in the words people use. It is important for parents to become aware of their words and the intention behind their words as well. A simple word said with a negative intention can have a devastating effect on a child. The impact of strong negative words can begin to shape the way a child sees themselves, thereby creating limiting beliefs, self-doubt, and low self-worth.
What causes us to create our roadblocks when we are adults?
Fear can be the catalyst for developing roadblocks. The fear of failure is one type of fear. Looking foolish for trying something new, or different is another. Even the fear of sharing the truth of who you are, a truth few people may understand or accept, can produce powerful roadblocks. Although small things that appear insignificant may build in strength to create roadblocks limiting the way forward.
How do we overcome these roadblocks, and clear the path to live our best life?
Many roadblocks do not have a foundation rooted in self-love. They were created out of negativity, and can be overcome when you begin to be true to yourself. Every roadblock at its core, has an untruth within it. It is these untruths that can be dissolved by the awareness of your true self-love.
To realize your self-love, begin by searching your thoughts for any beliefs that are not founded in love. These are the thoughts that create the roadblocks in your life. As these thoughts are released from your consciousness, self-love will begin to flow, and the path ahead will be cleared.
Do we realize we create many of our own roadblocks? Much to contemplate. Let me know what you think. Leave a comment below, or email me at, firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m always open to exploring the conversation further.
Each week I email a newsletter/article to those who have subscribed to my weekly. This week I write about the consciousness of lack. Here is an excerpt.
Oftentimes we are taught by those around us, that the world has an inadequate or limited supply of everything, lack of money, a lack of good jobs, on and on it may go. When we maintain a consciousness of lack, we will then see proof of our beliefs, thus re-enforcing our beliefs. So, if we believe there is not enough money to go around, we will experience a lack of money in our lives, thus proving our belief that there is a lack of money.
