The other day, I asked my son, Dougie to pick up his “blocks” from all over the living room floor. He’s 6. And, he has just started to enjoy arguing with me. “They are not blocks,” he said. “They are Legos. They build things”
Woah, my child is a genius, I thought!
What if those things that we think are blocking us from becoming who we want to be and getting where we need to go could actually help build our path? Could your greatest weaknesses truly become your greatest assets?
I’ll tell you that I think YES, of course they can!
A few months back I enlisted the help of yet another healer. I was trying to get over my “block” of not being able to conform. For years, all I have wanted to do is be able to conform just enough to do certain jobs without hassle. Do you want to know what she told me? She told me that I am on the right path. She told me that I am not conforming because I have a different purpose.
When I tell you that I cannot conform, I mean it. I mean, no matter how hard I try, I cannot follow rules. Never been able to. I have lost money because of this. I was hoping to get an exercise I could do to get me beyond it.
So, I started to rethink everything else that was “stopping” me. And, I decided that instead of judging myself for it, I would honor that part of me and see how I could use it to become more the real me.
What are you afraid of? What do you think is your deepest-buried block? Maybe you don’t even know yet. Let’s start with one fear or weakness. Spill it! Tell me! and I’ll tell you more of mine. Put it right out here in the open. There’s no shame because the bigger your fear, the greater your so-called weakness, the more you have to benefit from. And you how, we will show you how.
I’m afraid of drowning, being suffocated or hit by a car. I can’t spell. I swear a lot. Sometimes my body gets tired and my mind wants to keep going. I’m slower at some things that I wish I could be faster at. I worry way too much about EVERYTHING.
I’ve gotten over my need to conform. I’ve gotten over my fear of my sixth sense. I am using both right now to serve all of us. How I use these other blocks will be revealed right here in front of you. I have no idea of the outcome. Only that these blocks will FOR SURE become assets to me.
Spill the beans. What’s “blocking” you? Think my blocks are lame and that yours are harder to crack?
Don’t be shy! share away.
