It’s common in metaphysical groups to encourage being focused on the positive, say affirmations and visualize success. All of these behaviors are important to help keep your energy upbeat and attractive to manifesting. In addition to focusing on positive life-affirming behaviors, it can be just as important to be aware of and change negative behaviors and attitudes that can block or stall your highest Divine life and good from coming in.
Although it seems obvious that negative behaviors aren’t in our best interest, it’s easy to become angry, fearful, or lost when an overwhelming challenge or an unexpected life event happens. Remember that the Universe is always there to help. Just like using a navigation system when you travel, it is important to stop, reassess, and recalibrate if you start straying from your Divine destination.
Check for any of these Path blockers that can delay or pull you off of your highest Divine way:
Becoming bitter and disillusioned with life including constantly focusing on past mistakes and failures.
Many of us have had painful, challenging or disappointing events in our lives. We may have made a bad decision, lost a relationship, or missed that opportunity that we desperately wanted. Be especially careful about hardened attitudes and shutting down over life’s events. There is an energy with both positive and negative thoughts. Strong emotions around negative unforgiving thoughts and attitudes can repel and stall new options coming in.
Recalibration: For everything that you have lost, there are new opportunities and abundance waiting to open up for you. Grab spiritual tools to help such as deliberately sending love to the situation, person, or event. Allow yourself to be willing to forgive even if you don’t feel it. Just having the willingness calls Universal energies in to start the healing process. Other options might also include seeking professional counseling, grief recovery, or 12-step work.
Holding onto something when it’s best to let it go.
Resisting change when you’re getting clear signs that something no longer serves your higher good can block your Soul path and growth. The unknown can be scary, but if a person, place, or thing is trying to leave your life, it usually means that something much better is on its way. It may be time to let go because you’ve been changed, you’ve learned the lesson, or you are needed somewhere else.
Recalibration: Try allowing, trusting, and being open to the new instead of using your energies to resist. This gives the Universe a chance to bring in different opportunities and new directions. Deliberately choosing to expect the best to happen is also a good way to set up possibilities for miracles and the extraordinary.
