Clearing

By: Elaine Murray

A "block" is a place where energy is constricted... not moving, not flowing. Usually blocks are caused initially by repressed emotions of fear, guilt, and/or resentment (anger) that cause a person to tighten up and close down spiritually, emotionally, mentally and even physically. In dealing with a block, what is needed is to get the energy moving and flowing in that area. How?

  1. Mental and emotional acceptance(on a physical level this manifests as relaxation and release.)

  2. Clear observation, which leads to understanding of the root of the problem... which is always a limiting attitude or belief.

In dealing with an area of consciousness where we have a block, we need to first experience (as fully as possible) the emotion we have blocked up in that area, in a loving, accepting way. In doing so, we get the blocked up energy moving and we have a chance to observe the underlying negative beliefs, or attitudes which caused the problem in the first place. We can take a good look at them and let them dissolve themselves. By pinpointing the constrictive belief and accepting the feelings you have around it; the difficulty disappears, once you have understood and accepted yourself. It is much simpler than you think. The trick is to love and accept yourself compassionately for having this belief, and at the same time, to see clearly that you are ready to let go of it because it is limiting, destructive, self defeating, and untrue.

Some examples of troublesome common core beliefs are:

  1. I'm not okay...there is something wrong with me... I am unworthy and undeserving.
  2. The world is an unsafe place.
  3. Love is dangerous... I might get hurt.
  4. The world doesn't work and never will. In fact it is getting worse all the time.
  5. I don't have control over what happens to me... I'm powerless to do anything about my life or the state of the world.

Every one of us has bought into these negative viewpoints to some degree... otherwise we would all be manifesting as fully realized beings. The important thing to realize is: they are only beliefs and they have no objective truth. It is only the degree to which we accept these "beliefs" that separates us from our God-like nature. THE MOST POWERFUL THING YOU CAN DO TO CHANGE THE WORLD, IS TO CHANGE YOUR OWN BELIEFS ABOUT THE NATURE OF LIFE, PEOPLE, REALITY, ....TO SOMETHING MORE POSITIVE... AND BEGIN TO ACT ACCORDINGLY.
