If you feel something is blocking your progress, it could be several things. Learn how to identify the roadblock and remove it.
When you feel stagnant or just not getting anywhere, it is time to diagnose what’s going on. It could be the Universe attempting to teach you something. It could be an issue from the past that needs attention. Still, it could also be interference from some unhealthy programming.
When Your Path is Blocked
When you feel blocked, this can be very frustrating. You may feel your life isn’t moving in the direction you think it should. Something’s blocking your path and holding you back. Others follow routines ingrained by self-hypnosis. They aren’t growing; they are stuck in a rut. This is usually because they follow a religion, a teacher, or both. That’s when it’s time to diagnose what’s going on.
Removing spiritual roadblocks is something we learn to do with a simple exercise. First pause for a few minutes. Stop thinking about what the issue could be. Give the active mind a rest. Sometimes just pausing the active mind will clarify the issue or issues. Be sure to use a spiritual journal to document everything. If you don’t know what this is, follow the link first.
On the positive side, when your path is blocked, it shows you are making progress. It means you have new insight. Good for you.
The sources of your roadblock could be one or more of the following:
- Unhealthy programming from the cultural narrative or our Ego.
- The Universe prompting you to move in another direction.
- An issue from the past that you need to resolve.
- You are stuck in a victim or survivor mindset. You are ready to progress to a victor.
Removing Spiritual Roadblocks
1) Pinpoint the Obvious Issues
First, try this simple exercise to help identify the issues.
Close the eyes. Sit up straight but comfortably. Allow your head to float above the shoulders. Bring your attention to your body posture and breath. Observe the breath. Breathe deeply and naturally. Do not force the breath.
Sit and breathe for 3 to 5 minutes. When thoughts invade, gently bring your attention back to the body and your breath. At the end of 3 to 5 minutes, ask yourself the questions, what is blocking my path? What is the lesson? Then write in your journal.
If this isn’t clarifying the issue, we suggest the automatic writing technique.
2) Automatic Writing
This is a more in-depth process similar to the above exercise. When you use the automatic writing technique, it will unlock everything subconsciously. We recommend you document your sessions in your spiritual journal so that you can spot patterns or issues. Follow this link to the automatic writing process.
Trust your subconscious to explore and bring new options and resources. An excellent place to start is asking yourself the question, “what is the lesson?” Again, it is important to document everything in your spiritual journal. This will help you identify any trends. It’s also a way of cultivating your intuitive powers.
This is a simple but effective strategy for finding solutions to those issues blocking your path. However, even if you think you have identified the first two roadblocks, we recommend another tool to confirm your findings. Removing spiritual roadblocks is something we all face. If you are not using the Enneagram, you should add it to your spiritual tool belt.
3) Enneagram Personality Profile
The Enneagram Personality Profile is a tool that will identify the default programming scripts of your personality and instinctual type. If there is an issue here because of unhealthy thought patterns, this tool will show them to you.
How to Remove the Roadblocks
When your path is blocked, using the right spiritual technology will help you deal with the issue. If you are using all the above diagnostic tools, then you are already using some of these technologies.
Removing spiritual roadblocks is a common issue. The more we progress down, the more likely to encounter things we need to resolve. Sometimes the larger issues come up first, but sometimes we run into them after years of practice. It’s also not uncommon to have the same issues resurface. Don’t be discouraged.
You at least recognize that there is something in the way. The dominant cultural narrative fixates many people, and they do not see they are in a trap. The mind trap of faith is a debilitating condition. We know that denial is an effective tactic to maintain any paradox.
Spiritual technologies are methods for exploring human consciousness. These methods come to us from cultures worldwide, and they comprise a diverse body of practical mental tools. You can use these tools to develop your potential, open spiritual gifts, expand awareness, and reach higher states of consciousness.
We select scientifically verifiable methods that are repeatable and safe for our blended learning process. They are methods time-tested by generations of use, and they stand up to the rigorous tests of science.
Several of these ancient techniques produce positive, measurable effects on our physiology. These changes include increased brainwave coherence, lower heart rate, and increased skin resistance. These changes prove these techniques produce states of consciousness that differ significantly from waking, dreaming, and sleeping.
Anyone can use these processes to develop their full potential. They do not require faith or belief in any religious doctrine. All you need to do is follow the process, and it’s like following the recipe for baking a cake. If you combine the right ingredients in the right way and you get something delicious.
We divide these tools into four major categories:
Everyone has their own path, and you can start with any of these methods. The more of them you use, the faster your progress.
When your path is blocked, it is a sign that you have made progress. Don’t be discouraged. Removing spiritual roadblocks is something every warrior of light encounters.
