If you are new to energy healing, what is your main challenge when it comes to allowing yourself to experience it? The key here is ‘allowing yourself.’ Think about the last time you sat down trying to work through blockages using whatever method you felt comfortable with. Did any specific obstacles show their faces when you got too close to a breakthrough? Sometimes it can feel difficult to work through your own limitations when you haven’t even gotten close enough to see any change. We subconsciously prevent ourselves from exploring this growth because that would mean letting go, having to do things differently, and leaving your comfort zone. If you’ve experienced this before, know that this is completely normal. This is actually a sign that you are moving in the right direction because you are feeling some resistance. This resistance is a call to action to press on. As a spiritual guide who has worked with dozens of clients, these are the two most common blocks women have experienced when it comes to the healing journey. Let me know in the comment section if either of these resonates with you.
Blockage #1: Self Sabotage
Self-sabotage is by far the most common block when it comes to healing. During your healing journey, it can feel scary to move outside your comfort zone. It requires you to be vulnerable, to see yourself in a light you’re maybe not ready for and to let go of some things that you maybe have used as a crutch for too long. When you feel yourself getting too close to a goal, you might find yourself purposely or subconsciously ruining your progress. This could be looking for problems, blowing things out of proportion, or avoiding taking action. Self-sabotage is fear in disguise. It is doing everything it can to prevent change in order to protect you, although it doesn’t realize that it’s actually doing the opposite. Self-sabotage can quickly become a habit that robs you of great opportunities.
Blockage #2: Fear of Success
Fear of success is often the other culprit that causes disruptions on your healing journey. Fear of success is the fear of actually achieving what you desire (i.e., peace, freedom from the past, or joy.) This happens when there is fear of the unknown. In your heart, you might have no idea what these desires will look like in real life. What does it mean to be free from the past? What does it look like to not be held back from your past circumstances? Once again, this is fear coming from your ego in an attempt to protect you from the unknown, even if that means being miserable by not changing your circumstances.

How to Discover Your Block
You might resonate with one or both of these blocks. To find out what might be standing in your way and preventing you from healing, do this process to receive guidance from your spirit guides.
Find a quiet space where you can spend the next few moments in peace.
Get comfortable in whichever position feels good. Begin breathing deeply as you close your eyes when you’re ready.
Take 3 to 5 deep breaths. Then tap into your body right now, do you feel any resistance? If so, where?
Breathe into this space by visualizing your breath flowing to this location.
Ask your body, what is this resistance? Allow the answer to come forward naturally. Don’t try to force it. A response may come up as a word, an image, or a sound. All is welcome.
Sit with your answer for a bit. What does it mean to you? For example, if you received fear of success, where does this stem from? How does this show up in your life currently? What would be the worst that could happen if you were in fact successful?
Whenever you’re ready you can open your eyes.
When you are new to healing, every minor challenge can feel like a major setback. But as a spiritual guide, I can affirm that the more challenges you face, the juicier the results will be. Keep moving forward. Keep showing up. And remember your end goal: joy on all levels. It’s all possible for you.
