Feeling blocked is something that we all experience from time to time! That confused and lethargic feeling usually arises when we’re feeling exhausted in one way or another. And it can take a long time to get better unless we actively focus on fixing it.
Does any of this sound familiar?
When you feel like your efforts just aren’t working out.
When you feel like you take one step forward and two steps back.
When you feel on the verge of something great happening but something always gets in the way.
Yes? Then you’re probably experiencing a mental block.
7 Signs That You’re Blocked
- feeling drained or tired
- attracting drama in multiple areas of your life
- cluttered space/desk
- mood swings
- chronic money issues
- other chronic or repetitive issues (work/love)
- just not feeling like yourself
There are a few different ways to deal with mental blocks. And some blocks will require a lot more work than others! But this list of remedies has something for almost every situation:
5 Ways To Zap Your Mental Blocks!
1. Declutter / Rearrange Your Space
A constant dance is required to keep our homes active and energized. Without movement and motion, things get clogged up energetically — and that can be passed on to you. And the best way to deal with it in my opinion? Attack it – literally. That means decluttering your space and switching things around to make the energy flow more evenly. Give your home (or at least your bedroom) a thorough cleaning and decluttering. Then analyze your space for any Feng Shui no-no’s and fix them as soon as possible.
2. Use A Mantra
Part of the process of getting unblocked is retraining our minds. Those old negative thought patterns are what’s keeping you from making progress. If you constantly say to yourself super strong statements like “Oh this stuff always happens to me!” or “That kind of person never likes me” your brain will begin to believe it (even though it isn’t empirically true!). So the first step is to stop yourself in the act. Only then can you begin to control those thoughts by replacing them with something that’s more positive.
3. Sweat It Out
Being physically active is a great way to release blocks. If you’re struggling through a problem, going for a walk or taking a run has a magic way of unlocking your brain and letting new ideas come out. If you’re stressing about something or feeling up against a wall, taking even five minutes for a physical activity can make a massive difference.
Being in water has an enormously restorative effect on us mentally and physically. It brings us back to our center, feeling present in our body. Plus since water is a natural element, being immersed in it naturally raises our vibe. Taking a long bath or shower is also super-easy to do!
5. Chakra Healing/Reiki
Your personal energy field is another space where a lot of blocks can build up. While there are loads of healing meditations and cleansings you can do to help yourself, sometimes the best thing to do is to seek the help of a professional. Making an appointment with a Reiki practitioner or chakra healer will zap your Chi or chakras right back into alignment. And your mental state is definitely worth the cost.
