Yesterday I reviewed what I’ve already said about Abundance ~ please see Part One of this post here:
Dissolving Blocks to The Flow of Abundance ~ Part One.
So today I wanted to move on to sharing a list of blocks and talking about how to dissolve them. I want to start with discussing what Abundance really is so we will all be on the same page. If you want to experience and enter into The Flow of Abundance, you have to understand what Abundance is. Although I did not share this link yesterday, Eddie and I have also talked about Abundance in our Primer (from this post: On Abundance and Awareness). Here is some information from that post:
To live in Abundance is our natural state. In Reality there is no lack and all Beings have everything they need to thrive. That also goes for our existence in the matrix or illusion. We all have everything we need to thrive. Some people only experience a lack of abundance because they have chosen to, to learn from that experience. Others mistakenly perceive that they lack abundance because they feel they do not have everything they desire or as a result of some fear that has created a block to The Flow of Abundance. Abundance is not about money; it’s about the flow of the Golden Energy of Love. The fact is that everything is Energy and there is always an abundance of Energy available to all.

Abundance is Love appearing as the beautiful Souls we call our friends, the green trees in front of your house, and the birds singing in front of your window. Abundance is blessings in the form of opportunities, unity, spirituality, information (light), freedom, free will, choices, experience, wisdom, flowers, music, art, animals, and so much more.
Please remember this ~ Abundance is not about money.
Abundance is not about money.
Abundance is not about money.
This is a good example of a block to the Flow of Abundance. If you think Abundance is about money, then you probably feel like you’re constantly running alongside The Abundance Train, never able to get a seat on board.
(And probably feeling like it’s because you can’t afford a ticket.)
Of course, money is something we all need right now. We all have bills to pay. However, the bills and the money are really just part of the illusion. It’s more helpful to see them for what they really are ~ representations of energy. Everything is energy and money can be part of the energy of Abundance. When you understand money this way, you can see that it is not something that should be considered more important or necessary than anything else and you can see that by embracing and living in Abundance, there is no need to worry about money. Money represents energy and when you are in The Flow of Abundance, you have everything you need to thrive. It can be no other way.
Now let’s discuss some blocks to The Flow. I talked to several people about this yesterday and it was a great discussion. Not only did I get some helpful information, but we transmuted and moved some energy and we helped The Collective move more into The Flow of Abundance. We removed some blocks! So, thank you Eddie Seanan, Amanda Goins, Debra Jane Ciavarella, Alexandra Snow (Deanna), and Andrew Martin for participating in all of that. I think we started September off with a bang, it was a lot of fun, and I am grateful to you! (By the way, you can see most of this discussion on my Facebook page if you are inclined to look for it. Message me there if you need help finding it.)
Following is a list of blocks that is meant to serve as examples ~ it is not a list of every block we could think of. You can use these examples to guide you in discovering what your own blocks might be.
I have decided to present the blocks listed as a result of the fears they come from. In other words, it is always a fear of something that creates a block. I feel that understanding where blocks come from helps to see a bigger picture, address more than one block at a time, address the fears that actually create our struggles, and bring us that much closer to letting go of things that no longer serve us. I also note that there is a lot of cross action here. In other words, these fears can create other blocks, not just blocks to Abundance. And, blocks can be rooted in more than one fear.
Blocks To The Flow Of Abundance
1. Fear of success which can lead to guilt, frustration, stagnation, anger, blame, finger-pointing, judgment, etc.
A good place to start this discussion is to ask yourself how you define “success.” However you choose to define success is up to you. There is no right or wrong definition and your definition will change over time but it may very well be that your definition is not in alignment with who you really are and where you really want to be on your Path. If this is the case, you are throwing obstacles up in front of yourself and moving forward will be more difficult. It may be time to re-examine what success means to you. When you know what your goals are and come into alignment with them, your Path becomes less rocky.
2. Fear of failure which can lead to contraction, resistance, an inability to receive, competition, aggressiveness, passive-aggressiveness, not taking responsibility, etc.
Fear of failing can really put the brakes on your journey. It can make you feel like you are frozen in place, contracting rather than expanding, and afraid to even look out of the box much less leap out of it. Fear of failure can make you feel relatively helpless and much smaller than you really are.
Please remember that there is no such thing as failure. It is IMPOSSIBLE to fail. IMPOSSIBLE. Integrate that knowledge and tattoo the words on your wings if you have to. As I said the other day,
“After you’ve fallen and gotten up a few times, then you will know the Truth ~ you never really fall and you never really fell. The only direction any of us has ever moved was up and forward.”
You are here to have experiences and to learn from them. You may feel tested and you may be tested, but you will never be graded. You will always, always succeed. Even when it comes to your calling and mission as a Lightworker, you will always, always succeed. We all serve Love. You serve Love. You are Love. You cannot fail. Love cannot fail.
Love always wins.
3. Fear that you are not good enough or that there is something wrong with you which can lead to martyrdom, a victim state, guilt, persecution complex, depression, feeling undeserving, giving your power away, waiting for assistance from the outside, waiting for events to happen, etc.
This is a major issue for just about everybody, if we are being honest. Somewhere along the way, as we were growing up, most of us developed the fear that there was something wrong with us. That some thing or those some things may be different for everybody but most of us have felt, at some time, that there is something wrong with us and worse, that other people will find out that there is something wrong with us. Isn’t that why we started wearing masks and armor? To hide our perceived flaws and to protect ourselves from the expected backlash to our faults?
We start dropping our masks and armor as we begin to understand who we really are because as we begin to understand who we really are we realize that there isn’t really anything wrong with us. We only started to feel that way because of the experiences we chose to have in duality and polarity. Living in 3D causes most people to start hiding under layers and layers of protective gear that belies who they truly are.
I’m going to tell you The Truth about yourself right now: There is nothing wrong with you. Nothing. Period. Full stop.
As you begin to integrate this Truth, you can start saying good-bye to your fear and blocks, knowing that you are a Unique Spark of the One Divine Flame. What you are is Love incarnate. You are The Holy Grail of Humanity. It’s time to Love Yourself in all of your Divine Perfection. Think of a Being whom you admire, like Jesus or Archangel Michael, and understand that you are just as awesome as they are. You are them and they are You. Unique yet still One. You may focus on your Human “flaws” all you want but I assure you they are not Real. Seeing yourself or anybody as flawed is just a distortion; an illusion. It’s time to let that false perception go because it does not serve You or Humanity or Love.
4. Fear of change which can lead to stubborness, selfishness, dominating, controlling, power struggles, hoarding, clinging to old ways and things, etc.
As above, so below ~ Change is a constant in our lives just as it is in all of Creation. Energy is never still; it is always moving. This is Life! Since things are always changing, embracing change will make your journey a lot easier.
Most of us fear change because it represents the unknown. We feel like a change might turn out for the worse or that something bad might happen. We tend to develop expectations, often just setting ourselves up for disappointment.
Well, you can stop worrying about change right now because The Divine Plan works to ensure that everything will always turn out for the Highest Good of All. It may not feel that way in any one moment but it’s True and this will become apparent to you at some point on your Path. And we all co-create the Divine Plan in every moment, so it works for each of us. You are not a puppet or slave to The Divine Plan, you are a Co-Creator. Surrender the desire to control what appears to be happening around you and embrace change and you will start to free yourself from worry about the future. There is one safe expectation that you can have about the future, so make a note if it helps:
“Whatever happens will be for the Highest and Best Good of All.”
5. Fear of lack or scarcity ~ that you will not have or get what you think you need or want ~ which can lead to greed, envy, pettiness, materialism, poverty consciousness, and an inability to give or be generous, etc.
This is probably the fear that comes to mind first for most of when we think about blocks to The Flow of Abundance. Most of us feel like we can’t afford everything we need much less everything we think we want.
Question: What does that tell us?
Answer: That we are making money more important than it really is.
When we do this, we are perpetuating a state of Being that we say we no longer want to exist in. We have to let go of the fear that we will not be able to get something we need, whether it be food, new shoes, or a new car. We have to let go of the fear that we cannot afford something we feel we might need, like a trip to the hospital or flood insurance or a new heater.
Those fears are what is keeping us from moving into the Abundant State of Being where those fears no longer exist. They cannot exist in such a high vibrational state. It’s not possible.
Know that when you are ready, when you have dealt with and released your fears once and for all, you will no longer acknowledge lack or scarcity as possibilities. They will simply not exist for you.
I would never tell you to be reckless about your finances and I would never give you financial advice, but what I will tell you is that money is not Real and you should not give it any power. Money is nothing, whereas You ~ You are a Powerful Co-Creator. Start looking at money differently and see it for the energy that it represents. Then, work your magic. You are a Master when it comes to working with energy, you know.
Related to this is something that I mentioned in an earlier post
(11/11 and Other Shifts ~ My Recent Experiences ~ Abundance):
“I know that the best way to increase The Flow of Abundance is to participate in it! Always sharing and not fearing that I would run out of money if I gave some away. Truth ~ You will never experience Abundance if you are afraid to share what you have. You must give as well as receive. Hanging on to every cent, only thinking of your own needs and desires, and being unwilling to share are huge blocks to The Flow.”
So, if you have a dollar, consider giving away a dime. It’s not about the dime. Ten cents doesn’t seem like much, after all. But the energy? Oh, wow! The loving energetic ripple you create when you engage in this type of activity?
Since I don’t want to end this by talking about the totally non-important thing that is money, I will make another suggestion. Forget about money and how much you have and how much you need and what you need to buy and whether or not you can afford to give some away. Look at other things around you. See. See them. You are blessed with Abundance. You are blessed with an Abundance of Love. Give some of that away. You are surrounded with an Abundance of Energy. Send out some of your Positive Energy and bless all those in your field. Do you have flowers? Tomatoes? Lemonade? Drawings? Songs? Poems? Smiles? Socks? Books? Toys? Share the wealth! Do you have enough Hugs that you can afford to give some away for free? Do it! Share what you have. Share your Abundance, share your Blessings, and you will see that the more you give, the more you have.
This post turned out to be pretty long so I am going to wrap things up in a third post where I will talk more specifically about dissolving blocks. Although that topic has been touched upon in parts one and two, I would like to expand on the subject with more information, tools, and guidance. I will try to finish part three tomorrow.
* Abundant Blessings! *
