“Peace and happiness are available in every moment. Find peace in every step you take. The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.” Cherokee blessing
The hardest time to hold the vision for our goals, is when we are faced with obstacles.
There are many types of obstacles we have to maneuver on our path. The most difficult is our mind.
The thoughts and beliefs that we dwell on each day, prevent us from moving past these barriers. These thoughts prevent us from listening to our intuition. These thoughts prevent us from making effective decisions and taking the right actions.
Before I trusted in the synchronicity of life, I would say “Oh of course this would happen” or “Why don’t I seem to achieve my goals?” It was always my fear and my mind that created the barriers.
Wanting life to be perfect was another barrier I faced. I saw obstacles as a negative experience. I believed that if I didn’t succeed the first time, or was presented with a challenge, that somehow I had failed. I believed I didn’t deserve to receive what I needed.
The challenges and obstacles that faced me were my learning curves. They helped me slow down and to seek clarity. They helped me change course and find a better way to move forward. They helped me become patient and strong.
Our barriers can be:
- Lack of inspiration or desire
- Lack of knowledge
- Lack of skill
- Fear of change
- Fear of failure
- Feeling unworthy
- Lack of discipline
Find all the barriers that prevent you from achieving your dreams. Practice stillness. In the stillness, you will find wisdom and the answers to shift any obstacles.
