Blocks to Developing your Intuition
Many people ask me about possible blocks to expanding their awareness and developing their intuitive abilities. Some Intuitive Sensitives have reached a certain level of growth and spiritual advancement but currently feel blocked, others feel as though they have plateaued.
One of the key aspects to psychic awareness is to embrace, rather than avoid, an open curiosity and fascination with human life. Therefore, two of the main blocks are avoidance and denial. If you try and hide from your life determining there must be a some sort of monster the size of an elephant in your cupboard, then developing your intuition is not going to be easy for you, no matter what your natural gift.
No one has anything in their cupboard they cannot face. We are well equipped to deal with our lives no matter what the immediate circumstances are. All we need to find is a little faith in ourselves and the ability to ‘admit’. Sometimes we are following unconscious patterns from our past that we need to adjust. Those adjustments require our participation. Without our participation our out-dated patterns reoccur more times than we like to admit.
Bethany sat in front of me. As she sat down I could immediately feel that her energy was very heavy in her heart. After a few moments she began to become very emotional about a relationship that had broken down in the last few months. Her partner had come into her life as a very strong and loyal figure. He had been a good influence on her three children showing them boundaries they had never experienced before.
Suddenly Bethany’s partner started to withdraw. He became distant from her before announcing he was going to return to his country of origin to deal with his depression. A few months after he left, he sent Bethany a letter. It was a rant about how awful she was …and with many cruel words.
Bethany was extremely intuitive. Her psyche had been giving her the distinct information she needed in order to deal with the situation and begin healing. But she was ignoring these insights to remain in the pattern of the past. Determined that her feelings were telling her to go and find this man to heal the situation, she almost booked a plane ticket.
She was in fact blocking her psychic awareness. The last thing on earth she should do was visit this man. So why was she feeling so compelled? She was re-exercising her patterns of rejection. She had been creating draining situations for people around her in order to be rejected. This man she had been involved with was very ill with depression and following him around was only going to make the situation worse. Her ex-husband had been a secret drinker. When his addiction became out of control the marriage collapsed. Her father, a violent and aggressive depressed figure, had been a shadow in her childhood years.
Bethany had thought all her past to be just that – her past. She wanted to help other people and become a healer. However, in her current state where she was blocking her own intuition and progress to such a degree, the last thing she needed was to become a healer. This was her way of blocking and denying the energy that was demanding it needed to heal. She did though accept a chink of her intuition. Deep in her psyche she knew the right place for her was within a development group. Although her behaviour created rejection many of the others knew this. They were collectively determined not to allow her to create rejection. They became very aware of her demands on their energy but, instead of rejecting her, they encouraged
her to speak up and offered her support as her patterns became highlighted. For the group it was, metaphorically, hugging a child who had never been hugged. It took Bethany a few months to recover, but once she had, she realised all her previous relationships were a reflection of each other. Once her energy had moved on, she was no longer interested in the type of relationship she had created in the past and was able to set about finding what she deserved in life and it was at this point that her energy really opened up. Her intuitive abilities became heightened, her attitude was lighter and she was able to become an excellent help to others around her.
Top Tips for Clearing the Blocks to your development
Facing the Shadow
You may argue that some people do have horrendous patterns and pasts and beliefs and experiences and memories to avoid; things they would rather leave buried deep in the psyche and never face. The truth is, facing them with trust in the self will get a person positive results every time. I have seen people come out the other side having dealt with horrific experiences such as childhood rape, being left for dead after an attack, domestic violence and many other extreme traumas at the hands of people without a conscience. For some it has taken years to overcome the damage, but they have done it and done it successfully. Often it has been as a direct result of their trust and willingness to face the unseen shadow part of the self and moving through it with direct energy work on their mental, emotional, and spiritual energy field.
When we feel stuck around our psychic development often the psyche is calling for a little more inner work. This is the exploration of the subconscious world. Blocks in the subconscious hold up our ability to see or sense our psychic and spiritual progress. It is natural to experience pockets of old energy in the subconscious. Part of our development is about clearing out the old energy from the past in order to be a clear and uncluttered for the present. How do we do this? Go through any of the meditations, exercises and articles here on my site and see which ones jump out at you. Those will be the areas you still need to explore.
Accepting that everyone is different
Sometimes blocks can be due to individual differences. Not everyone is the same. Unique qualities affect how quickly a person can open up their intuitive side. For Intuitive Sensitives this is often very simple and you can find your intuitive progress steams forward dramatically. The adjustment that comes is a person’s self-worth. Most people’s self-worth could do with a boost. Very often when we accept our differences, work on our self-worth, our apparent blocks evaporate and we very naturally move into the best of who we are. And then, just like that, we open into the natural progression of our authentic selves…waiting to be unleashed. Waiting to gain momentum.
