View Full Version : Path blocked
05-22-2005, 06:20 AM
When one is on the healing path (or so she thinks), is it especially common for chance (and frequently bizarre) mishaps to routinely block the way to the very things (cures, teachings, healings) which are purportedly there to teach and heal? What are the possible interpretations for this type of repetative negating synchronous effect when it appears to the seeker there are no other avenues available?

Can you be a bit more descriptive on that please, forteana?
I've found that when something was blocking me from reaching something I felt like I needed it, it turned out that I already had what I felt like I needed and I only really needed to look within to find it.
How frustrating! Sounds like some sort of challenge or lesson may be involved...or perhaps a control issue?..are you clinging too much to a certain set of beliefs?
Just some objective-view guessing here...

obstacles that indeed turn out to be useful
the dark matter is messin with ya
you dont really want it
you are not sure if you really want it

test of your will

maybe you're already where you're trying to go, and you just need to realize that. from my naive, short-lived experience (consciously), my advice is to be careful about "paths." when you begin following a set path, you are repeating something; otherwise it wouldn't be called a "path." if you are heading somewhere that you've never been, and need to be, the universe will lead you there if you just let go. following a "path" comes with preconceptions and expectations, which is grasping. grasp not. that's "my" input.

Its what Timothy Speed Levitch would call "the anti-cruise". So you're like on your cruise, cruising along, and sometimes there is a lot of anti-cruise energy, throwing up obstacles. "Resist the anti-cruise!" (check out the awesome film - The Cruise).
Perhaps its a test. Do you really want this? How bad do you want this? Perhaps it is a way of focusing you on your path. Will you make the extra effort? Is this really the way?
There is always that doubt of - wait maybe this is a sign - I'm not really supposed to do this. So then you have to really figure it out.
Sometimes you're trying to do something and everyone tells you you can't do it. Or sometimes everything goes wrong, and then more and more problems arise. And everyone says - See its a sign, we told you you couldn't do this. So it can certainly make for a lot of questioning. But I guess that works out to be a good thing whether the obstacles were there to turn you away or to test you and reinforce your determination.
Maybe just as we might have helper spirits, there may be spirits working against us. Probably they can't really stop us.
I guess I'm thinking pretty generally, rather than in response to seeking out some type of healing. I wonder about your statement "when it appears to the seeker there are no other avenues available".
There's always something else. There's always more and more and more. I had some tremendous difficulties with my hands a few years ago and struggled for a long time to figure out what was going on and how to fix it. I thought I knew all about it but the more I looked, the more I found. As long as I was looking, I kept on finding more.
I have a little web page with some general ideas on self-healing, in case that would be of interest: http://www.ionet.net/~tslade/selfheal.htm
More specific details might yield some more specific help...

it's trite, but i've found it useful 'what you resist persists'...
...i can deffinitly empathize with this state you're describing forteanajones....i often feel blocked, and thwarted as i attempt new things, and things that i know i need to do, and want to do...
...one of the obesrvationtion i've made about these situations is there are usually other more pressing concerns in my life at the time, or that i already have perfectly workable tools to accomplish some of what i feel i need to be doing, and that when i begin to master those my way becomes unblocked, and i naturally regain flow, and able to then attract what it was i was after... kind of like 'two steps back, to get three steps forward...' which then leads to 'five steps back, to get ten thousand steps forward' LOL...
'do what you can, where you are, with what you've got.' i dunno, i think that's teddy rossevelt or somebody like that...
you've probably already got the tools you need...

I really appreciate these replies. I was purposefully vague because I am accutely aware that there is a fair amount of 'blocking' I myself am responsible for, and I probably should have opened with a caveat that I was 'fishing' for information to help explain the coincidental shit that so baffles me. Part of the problem is that in addition to the internal transformation process every single element of my life is changing at the same damn time, so it's like negotiating a moving a obstacle course in the dark. Right now I don't have the time or energy to present anything without it sounding like a bunch of whining (as I know it already does), but these comments were great.

Heh, that's normal, Forteana. I fly by the seat of my pants a lot, just knowing that somehow I'll manage to make it through...
and if I don't, I'll somehow adjust anyways!
Best of luck to you in your journey.
