When You Feel Blocked: Six Powerful Rituals to Help You Break Through
Have you ever felt blocked, stuck in a rut? Like part of you wants to change, grow, or move forward with something, but another part of you seems to be standing in the way? And no matter how you try, it seems you are unable to make a difference?
Being blocked can become a vicious cycle because the longer you are blocked, the more difficult it becomes to believe in yourself.
When you encounter a block in your life, what you are facing is actually the doorway to the next stage in your soul's journey. The mere awareness of your "stuckness" is a call from within to live more fully. Yet, how do you break out of this state? A lot of people say the answer is to follow Nike's advice and "just do it." But if you've ever been blocked, you know it's not quite that simple. If you could bring yourself to "just do it," you probably would.
Sometimes we need a starting point. Some way of shifting our gears, to get our momentum going.
When I was in Kindergarten, we made Christmas presents for our parents in school. I still remember what we made for our dads, because it was a source of light humor for the moms: coffee cans filled with sand. We lived in Indiana where there was always a lot of ice and slush in the winter. The coffee cans included instructions for the dads to keep the can in their car and throw some sand behind their wheels, should they happen to get stuck.
Sometimes we need a little sand behind our wheels, spiritually speaking. A ritual can be just that. We use rituals all the time, to mark transitions, to honor endings, to celebrate new beginnings, to rejuvenate ourselves and to remind ourselves of what's important to us.
Here are six rituals that can help you break up the ice and slush in your life and get the lift you need to move ahead:
1. Create an Altar
2. Purify Your Body Inside
3. Purify Your Body Outside
4. Clean Up Your Personal Environment
5. Have a Day of Silence
6. Write an Interactive Letter to God
You can try one of these rituals, a combination, or all of them! It doesn't matter what you do as long as it inspires YOU and makes YOU feel wonderful! Remember, rituals are not so much about what you do, but about your intent. Whatever ritual you choose, do it with the intent of pausing long enough to let love do its work and get you un-blocked.
Ultimately, being blocked is caused by denial. Denial of our power as spiritual beings. When you use a ritual to lovingly acknowledge and accept that power, blocks begin moving out of your way. You will emerge with a stronger sense of connection with all that is.
And you will discover that you DO have the power to change the course of your life!
