Feeling Stuck?


What does being blocked and stuck in your life look like? What does that mean?

❣️

For me, being blocked meant that I wasn’t fully living because I wasn’t fully feeling. This became apparent to me some years back, but it was really amplified as a pain point once I had my son.

❣️

I wanted to live fully for him and with him. So I knew this needed real intentional attention.

❣️

I feel my perinatal depression and anxiety issues (and those I have dealt with from a very young age) stemmed from this block. There was a lack of flow to my emotions and expression of self that was causing a disconnect with what I wanted out of life and what I was able to access and make happen.

❣️

I withheld-from myself and others. I played safe, nice and small. I co-depended. I often doubted myself. I was somewhat cut off from my body. I thought I was going deep when I was really staying pretty surface. I was shut off to parts of myself that held the most beautiful expression of living and loving.

❣️

I was feeling really stuck.

❣️

I believe these go hand in hand. If you feel stuck in your life, chances are there is a block present. And if there is a block, chances are that “stuckness” is showing up in your life. Internal blocks lead to feeling stuck in our external realities.

❣️

I also believe that to even acknowledge the feeling of stuck or blocked indicates a knowing, at least subconsciously, that you are meant for something else. That there is a call to something greater, more aligned and just (seemingly) out of reach. That perhaps, somewhere along the way a light was dimmed that is calling for reignition.

❣️

Of course, this is all an illusion. We are always exactly where we need to be, so in essence we are not stuck. But the story we get caught in is painful. If we can harness the energy and power behind the block, behind that feeling of being stuck, that energy that is pent up and waiting to be used, we can move through and towards that which our soul is destined for.

❣️

To work through my block, I had to get back in my body through very intentional work of movement, therapy and self-compassion. It has been a beautiful coming home. A reawakening to the joys life has graciously laid out for me. I have been able to get unstuck and find the peace, joy and motivation that was there waiting for me to free it. And I now have the skills to meet any block or feeling of being stuck with grace and patience, ushering them through more quickly and with compassion, so I can get back to what's important--living with an open heart and focused purpose.

❣️

What have your experiences been with feeling blocked or stuck? If you are currently there, I hope you find the healing path that works for you and brings you back home.

❣️

In loving hope for your transformational healing.
