Okay, so I’m this blonde African artist, muso (bass guitarist for Templeton Universe) and self-help writer/columnist (for CLN and Odyssey mag) from the Karoo, South Africa (yeah, that country where lions and zebras prowl the streets at night) with a burning passion for all things creative, kick-ass inspirational & ‘down the rabbit hole’ kinda interesting!

Got Blocks? This May Be Why…

Let’s talk about blockages — no not the physical kind (although…there is something later on about the physical manifestation). I’m talking about energetic flow kind of blocks — we all hit them at some point.

You’re cruising through life manifesting like a pro and then…voila! You hit a wall. The wall seems insurmountable — there’s no door, window, Easter egg or anything to point you in the direction of getting over this newfound hurdle, in fact the wall just seems to solidify. Your car has derailed and you are left feeling deflated and confused. Where did you go wrong?

I can only speak from personal experience, so here’s my take on it:

I’m going to be talking about hitting a ‘control’ blockage here. There are many speed-bumps on our path to awakening to our true power that pop up but the one I hit most often (and it could be through my anal Virgoic nature) is control. Yip, I’ve got control issues (join the queue).

Control is not a bad thing — it’s a grand discipline in most cases. However, to try and control everything in ones life is a dead-sure way to create a clog in that drain. Nothing blocks the flow of Universal abundant energy than your ego’s need to control every circumstance.

So, here’s my Einstein-esque formula: control=blockage.

SimSUBSCRIBE icon 1ple. But boy, do I have to keep on reminding myself of this.

The moment I try to manipulate and figure out my every move of how I’m going to get from point A to point B, I seize up. And not meaning to be graphic but I’m going to say it anyway…yes, I even have physical blockages. Constipation is a sure sign that you’re rigidly holding onto something.

As the Disney song states, ‘let it go‘. And make sure you’re cupboards are well stocked with toilet tissue.

Your HQ (higher self) knows how to get you what you want if it’s what your soul truly wants, so chill. If it doesn’t happen the way you wanted it to, chill. If it doesn’t happen at all, it wasn’t for you — know that you have potentially dodged a bullet, chill. Hakuna Matata.
