Remove Blocks to What You Want

Remove Blocks to What You Want

If you’ve ever wondered what keeps you from getting what you want, this may help you remove the blocks to your heart’s desire. This is one of the simplest but most revealing little exercises you can do.

1. Close your eyes and relax. Now, silently or aloud, ask yourself, “Why can’t I have what I want?”

2. Watch for any images that come up and listen for any words that pop into your mind. Whose words are they, whose voice is speaking, and what is it saying to you?

3. Examine any information you receive, with the object of getting very clear on what you are being told to believe. The messages you received in the past may have been true for the messenger, but may not be true for you.

4. When you examine them in the light of your own day, you can choose which of these beliefs are useful to you, and which are cluttering up your life and keeping you from having what you want. Whose voice do you hear? What are you being told to believe?
