5 Ways You May Be Keeping Yourself Stuck, And What To Do About It

waterfall with rainbow

If you feel like you are in a rut, or things are not happening the way you want despite your efforts, you might be keeping yourself stuck without even realizing it. Here are 5 ways you may be keeping yourself stuck and what to do about it.

Resistance

You’ve probably heard the saying “What you resists persists.”  What are you resisting? Resistance requires a lot of energy that can be used for other things. It will also wear you out until eventually you either surrender or it manifests as illness, relationship difficulties, financial difficulties, etc.  What if resistance is a gift? Not something to fear or a sign that something is “wrong” with you but a blessing?

The Desire to Control

The desire to control is ultimately a way to try and protect yourself from what you fear.  It can show up as trying to manipulate people to get what you want (which is still protecting yourself from what you don’t want). It may be a bunch of requirements you feel need to be met before you are willing to do or try something.  This is very common and often you may be unaware your requirements are actually limitations.  By comparing your fears and the conflicts in your relationships you can get clearer on how they are connected and how you might be controlling with others. To get clear on “requirements” you have put on situations it is often helpful to ask for the perspective of others you know and trust. Pay special attention to where you feel resistance or reactivity to what they have to say.

Believing You Already Know the Answers and Options

Need money immediately, but your paycheck is not for another week? You have nobody to ask to loan you the funds and cannot think of any other options so you conclude it is not possible.  Do you believe that the type of illness you have is genetic and you are stuck with it for the rest of your life? Think all the good men/women are already taken? These are just a few examples of how you limit yourself with your beliefs of what is possible.  However, if you can be willing and open to not having all the answers, it creates space for something new.

Incomplete Forgiveness

Take a look at the behaviors of the people who hurt you. Think of each person and what they did (or did not do).  If you look closely, you will likely notice similarities in what the people did and how you felt inside about yourself as a result.  Forgiving the person is only half of the healing process. It is like the flower on a plant. Addressing how you felt /feel about yourself is the root.

Your Stories

Everything you think and believe about yourself, about others and about life are just thoughts and beliefs. Who you actually are, who others are and what life is, has nothing to do with your thoughts and beliefs. These are stories not the actual thing itself. With this awareness, you can choose to experience beyond the stories or to choose stories that work for you…and to change the stories as needed rather than get mired down in them when they don’t work.

As you work through these 5 ways you keep yourself stuck, you will be opening yourself to change, flow, and greater ease.  Think about your life and how it would feel to have change, flow and ease. If you feel any fear or sense tension or construction, go back through this article and apply the information until you feel comfortable and ready to move forward.

Testimonial

” I was taken on the most wonderful and unexpected healing journey using Linda’s “Becoming Delightfully Unstuck” 21 day audio healings. Feeling “stuck” is an on going pattern for me in my life. I chose to make Career Stuckness my sole focus to clear during the 21 days. That was my intention, but that’s not what happened.

Turns out I rarely thought of my career issues or goals. My need to control the way the program was supposed to go and supposed to heal me vanished during the first audio session. Instead my mind and thoughts were instinctively directed to letting go and letting Linda guide me with her gentle guidance. During each audio sesh, as I called them, the lifelong belief systems about my lack of self worth and forgiveness, my need to control things out of fear and resistance started emerging. Most of them I was fully aware of. I like putting things on the back burner to someday get to, look at and resolve. Some were surprises to me. All of these were aching to be seen in the light of day to be revealed like little children needing love and attention.

At first glance some of the titles I thought I didn’t need. Or they probably wouldn’t do much. They turned out to be the gems of the group for me. There were audios that made me weep, others I immediately felt a shift from and others lead me in a lovely trance like state for a few moments.

Linda’s audios are deceptively simple and yet are so profound in the loving healing punch they deliver. I love and appreciate how short they are and that I have the ability to play them silently. Linda explains in each audio how and what each one is used for. She gives visual examples which help so much. There is no thinking or guessing on how to use them. Linda did all of the work for me. I just sat back and let go.

Without even focusing on it, I am actually closer to my career goal than I thought I would be after 21 days. It was the shifts in how I saw myself, my feelings of capability and self deservingness that I cleared in the program that is leading me closer to my dream. This is a program that I can use over and over again on every issue and challenge I have. I’m so excited that I have Linda’s healing love to help me through each one of them.” ~J.H.

Acceptance and Non-Attachment

rainbow tree

Acceptance and non-attachment are two of the most important attributes to develop in living Oneness. Although at first it may seem like these are opposites that contradict each other, they actually work well together, each adding to the other.

Acceptance is letting go of the struggle mentality around something. With struggle, you exert a lot of effort that can be better put to use. When you struggle, you are so busy fighting and pushing away, you are unable to see the problem for what it is and find the solution. When you push something away, you deny its existence and therefore cannot address it because you cannot address what you do not experience.

Many people think acceptance means giving up; being passive. That is not acceptance. Acceptance is mental and emotional flexibility. It is a form of mental and emotional martial art, like aikido. Aikido teaches how to work with the “energies” of push and pull. It teaches that when someone pulls you towards them, instead of resisting and trying to pull away, if you move in their direction, working with the momentum they have provided, they have no power over you. Acceptance likewise involves going with the flow, using the energies present in a situation, regardless of how adverse it may seem, as a partner in your process. Acceptance means rolling with the changes. Nowhere does aikido say that it is about allowing yourself to be harmed. And although aikido is referred to as self defense, it is also common sense.

Non-attachment is about un-attaching from the details of the smaller picture of individual fears and limiting beliefs in order to know the larger picture, the holistic context in which the individual situations exist. When you are attached to (invested in) fear and limiting beliefs, you manifest in accordance with that and the result is more fear and limitation. When you realize the fear and limiting beliefs for what they are, you can disengage from them and engage something more fulfilling.

There are several common misconceptions about non-attachment. One common misconception is confusing non-attachment with detachment. Detachment is disconnecting from yourself, others and the world around you. Non-attachment is a deep engagement with and trust in the larger picture of life that allows the person to not need the details of life to be a specific way. It is way of living which allows you to experience, appreciate, enjoy and nurture the spiritual in the material. Living in non-attachment is a form of mental and emotional flexibility and is very different from detachment which is like rigidly shutting down. To live in non-attachment is to realize that every emotion, thought and response to life has the same unconditional love as its core essence.

Another common misconception about non-attachment is that it means not caring. Friendships and other relationships are formed based on common desires, compatible beliefs, shared emotions and similar responses to everyday experiences and global events. Underlying the shared beliefs, emotions and responses is often a shared sense of lack, limitation fear and anger. When you move beyond the lack, limitation, fear and anger, you still care, but you have different responses to other people, world events and your own experiences. Acceptance and non-attachment enable you to experience the perfection; the wholeness in every moment.

The Sacred In Sacred Sexuality

heart hands light

THE SACRED IN SACRED SEXUALITY

The term sacred sexuality is in a way misleading because it can be interpreted to imply that sometimes sex is sacred and sometimes it is not. As human beings we are born with certain instincts and urges such as the urge to eat when we are hungry and to sleep when we are tired. We also have a sex drive. All three of these natural urges are necessary for our survival. Food and sleep keep us alive and so the innate need for them is an important part of our being human, so much so that it the urge is automatic. Go long enough without food and your hunger increases and increases until you can think of nothing else but how hungry you are and/or you will waste away and die. In the case of sleep you will eventually fall asleep whether you consciously want to or not.

As humans, our sex drive also has a purpose. Yes, it helps us keep our species going by creating new life, but it has another purpose as well; it is a homing signal, a reminder of from where we originated and of what is important in life. In fact, our sex drive is so strong and so important to express that it will be expressed in one way or another. Even if we try to tame it, express it in only in ways we think are socially acceptable, hold it in due to shame, fear of what others will think, cultural conditioning or other reasons, it will express, just perhaps in a way that is unfulfilling or even violent in its misdirection. Sex in and of itself is not dangerous, it is how we approach it, stifle it, misdirect it and color it with our own agendas based on past experiences, beliefs, etc. that make sex seem like less than the innate, beautiful, fulfilling experience that it ultimately is.

One of the reasons we crave sex so much is because of how wonderful it feels. This is such common knowledge that it is woven into our culture in just about every way possible. It is on our minds a lot (have you ever read one of those studies asking people how often they think about sex?!) and it is even part of how many of the products we use are promoted. Sex is part of how we respond to the people around us, and based on their response to us, we form opinions about ourselves. Sex is probably part of most every interaction we have, one way or another. It is a mental process as much as a physical thing that we “do” with someone. It is a foundation for how we feel about ourselves and how we take that sense of self into the world on a day to day basis. You can even think of sex as a currency or current of energy that we exchange in how we perceive others, how we respond to them based on that perception and how we feel about ourselves as a result. And interaction and exchange takes place, even if it is very subtle.

One of the gifts of having a sex urge is that it drives us to meet that need which often brings us together with others who also wish to meet that need. In the sexual interaction, an energy (current) exchange takes place physically but it again also takes place in how we feel about ourselves and the other(s) based on the interaction. Our past experiences have created expectations of ourselves, of our partner(s) and of the experience created together. Where it falls short of fulfillment, it is easy to attribute this to something about men, women, sex, the person or people you are with or to yourself. Thus sex has the capacity to stir up a lot of baggage, which we often continually perpetuate upon ourselves and each other. When this happens, sex can feel unfulfilling both physically and emotionally. Regardless of how much sex we may be having, if it is not fulfilling, it just leaves us wanting more and more as we try to get our fill. And if we have sex while feeling lack of trust, past hurts, repressed anger, etc. it is hard to really enjoy it fully because we are closed off to what makes sex most juicy (openness to experience it). This is similar to how some people approach food or other substances or experiences. More is not necessarily better. Nor is variety in terms of partners necessarily going to bring about the fulfillment we seek, it is how we choose to experience something that makes it fulfilling and sustaining. Experiencing the sacred in sexuality is a path of sexual and life fulfillment because it helps us to experience the whole of what sex is and what we are. Once we experience this wholeness, everything can be fulfilling if we so choose. Sex is never quite the same again.

Sacred sexuality can be thought of like stopping to smell the roses. Life is full of colors, textures, small details, tastes, sounds and more that are always present when you choose to take notice. A piece of fruit can be savored for its color, shape, size, scent, texture, taste and how it is presented (among other things). Or in a hurry to feed a hunger, we can gulp it down and not notice any of this, and feeling like we are still hungry for more of something. Sacred sexuality brings our attention to what is already present in our own bodies, in the bodies of others (if you choose to share the experience with others) and in what is created between people in the moment. In this regard sex is somewhat like dancing. An exchange of current (energy) takes place that is not just two or more people, it is something in and of itself that contains and includes whoever is present as one experience together. What’s more is that as you become aware of the sensations in your own body, it has a positive impact on the body of your partner(s) and of the overall experience.

Some people equate sacred sexuality with specific types of practices and/or techniques such as those of Tantra. Tantra is one approach to sacred sexuality but there are others such as Kama Sutra, Healing Love and more. Also, sacred sexuality can be experienced and enjoyed any time a person or people chose to savor the sensations and experience of pleasure in the moment. It can be independent of any specific approach or practices. Many people find the practices/techniques to be helpful in learning how to be aware and present to what is happening in the moment instead of stuck in the mental and emotional baggage and limiting self beliefs from the past. Since this type of conditioning is so much a part of how we interact, I believe learning and using practices and techniques such as breathwork, sound, eye contact and body movements are extremely valuable and helpful. However, it is important to keep in mind that these practices and techniques are not the full picture of sacred sexuality; they are just ways to be present and open to the fullness and wholeness of the moment. Many people equate sacred sexuality with techniques and lose track of sacred sexuality in its whole and ultimate form, which is the gift of being present (presence).
When people are truly present to themselves and each other sexually, their thoughts and baggage melts away and they become aware of the life force that sustains and unites them. The experience of divinity from which they came opens inside and around them and the feeling is exhilarating and pleasurable and much more. It is as if your senses open up even more and you feel pleasure/divinity/life force in greater depth and breadth because you are open to feeling more of it. It is always there and it is limitless. Sacred sexuality opens you to more of what is always present and this openness extends beyond “having sex” to an openness in everyday life, although the sex is really wonderful and that is a great reason for sacred sexuality in and of itself!

One of the great things about sacred sexuality is that you can choose to experience it at any time. Sexuality is life force energy (current) and it is always present. With practice you will be able to feel and enjoy your sexuality any time you wish, even if you are not with any other person or not in a relationship. Sacredness is about how you perceive things, about the openness to experiencing the divine within and around you. Any time you experience life force energy, you are experiencing sexuality. And when you shift your perception to go beyond mental conditioning, baggage, etc. by being present to the sensations in the moment, you are tuning into the sacred. Sacredness and sexuality are one…if you choose to experience them as such. From the experience of sacredness and sexuality being one, you can sense the sacredness in all experiences and all people. In life and in the bedroom, sacred sexuality can include things that many people would not typically define as sacred. However, if you are open to experiencing sacredness, you will learn from experience that it is everywhere. It is life changing and ultimately I believe it is what sacred sexuality is truly about.

A friend of mine once told me that sacred sexuality is not so much about knowing the sacredness in sex, but more about knowing that sexuality is the foundation of everything sacred in life and about life. He dreams of the day when not only would sacred be used to define sexuality but sexuality would be used to define and understand sacredness. Humanity has separated itself from sexuality; and when we objectify sexuality, we objectify ourselves by cutting ourselves off from our sacred source. Sacred sexuality is about being present to the fullness, the perfection, of our experience as human beings with our hearts and senses open to the depth and breadth that life is.

The Dangers of Psychic “Protection”

peacock heart

This article is an excerpt from my book, “Dancing Your Life.”

Working with energy is like working with nature. We find ways to use what nature
provides, for example some people hang their clothes outside to dry on a sunny
day, or harness the power of wind and water. When working with energy, we are
not so much changing what exists as we are learning to use what is already
provided and eternally present. It is an infinite resource including every possible
option of things to create.

There are as many ways to use energy as we can come up with, yet energy itself is
impersonal. It is our motivations in how we use energy that creates challenge in
our lives. As with the weather, energy is neutral. If someone were imprisoned
outside in the desert and died in the extreme weather, the weather did not “want”
the person to die. The death resulted from the dynamics of the people involved.
Working with energy in the field is about illuminating our motivations and
underlying beliefs that keep us interacting in ways that limit rather than fulfill. As
we do this, we evolve from having fear as the foundation behind everything we do
to having love and fulfillment. Free from fear, your motives change, along with
how you work with energy.

Situations that seem harmful or painful help you to move beyond fear and limiting
beliefs. Many people, when working with energy, use energy shields, bubbles and
other approaches to protect against the ill intentions of others. However, by trying
to protect yourself, you are sending a message that you are afraid, and your infinite
self brings you what you fear so you can move beyond the fear into empowerment.
Shields and bubbles may seem to keep what you fear at bay for a while, but in
order to move into Oneness and fulfillment, you will have to face the fear
eventually. That which you fear will continue to present until you face it. For the
time you are trying to protect yourself, you not only keep yourself from knowing
your empowerment sooner rather than later, you also expend a lot of energy in
resistance.

Some people use shields and bubbles to invite in only the energies they desire, thus
screening out other energies like a form of setting boundaries. They believe that
since it is healthy to have boundaries, shielding in this way supports them in
attracting what they want. I believe, however, there may be things you would
not invite in that would be very important, empowering, and perhaps even joyful
for you to experience, including things of which you are unaware. Additionally, if
your intent to invite only certain things is based on fear, then you will still resonate
with fear. That is what you will manifest with your boundary regardless of how it
is worded. It is the intent behind the boundary, the reason you are creating it, that
manifests.

If you feel the desire to protect yourself, the first thing to do is to
examine your motivations for the shielding. What do you fear? You might have a
clear answer to that or you might not, but you can work with it either way. Feel the
fear in your body for a few moments, then call upon what it would feel like to have
moved beyond the fear and notice the sensations that come up in your body.
Avoid trying to conceptualize how that might feel and instead allow your body to
bring forward the sensations. Stay with the sensations for a few minutes as the
changes unfold.

This approach to working with energy is called transparency because as you
address the fear, you will be transparent to it and fear-based challenges will pass
right by you without connecting because you do not resonate with them. Working
with transparency requires commitment to a level of openness to what the field
has to offer. While this openness leads to really powerful awareness and evolution,
it can also be overwhelming at first, leading back to the desire to protect yourself.
There is another option: clearing your energy. Clearing your energy in addition to
resolving the fears that make you want to shield, is a complete and powerful
approach to working with energy.

Healing Technique: Transferring Intuitive Knowing

creating magic

To learn more about this technique, and to learn many other innovative ways to play with energy, go here.

Transfer of Knowing

Another way to use your infinite nature and the infinite nature of your client for healing/awakening is to transfer knowing. This works especially well for those intuitive hits you get while offering a healing, coaching or intuitive session.

For example, I was offering a healing session for a friend who was not feeling very hopeful about her romantic prospects. As she was talking, I felt very clearly that she could have the type of relationship she wanted. I wanted her to have the same knowing; to sense the same likelihood for herself that I felt for her. I also wanted to help it be more likely to come to fruition. So I “transferred” my knowing to her.

I am using the word transfer in quotation marks because the knowing was not technically transferred. As infinite beings, both my friend and I include all energies, which means we both include all possibilities. That same knowing and that same possibility is in me and in her. I simply noticed that it was in her; I sensed it in her energy, which brought it to the forefront of her energy. She was surprised that she could feel it so strongly, and a bunch of inner shifting unfolded from the “transfer.”

So, if you want more concrete instructions on how to transfer, here they are (copied from level 7 with a few small changes).

Step 1: Experience your client as infinite.

Step 2: Sense in her menu of options (in her energy): the same intuition I have in me (or however you wish to word it). You will have a flicker of knowingness that it is done (that it has been sent). Depending on your intuitive senses you may have a flicker of knowing, a very quick visual confirmation, you may sense it with clairsentience, hear a confirmation or get the information in some other manner. Regardless of how you receive it, it only takes a few seconds.

Step 3: If you do not have the flicker or some other sign, or have doubts that it worked, just acknowledge that your map of what is possible is not necessarily the same as what is possible. Choose from the menu of infinite possibilities “trusting my infinite nature has taken care of it even if I have trouble believing it.”

Done.
