We’ve been talking about the phenemenom of obstacles popping up on the path to your dreams.

Sometimes this happens because we’re heading for the right Dream, but we’re taking the wrong route….

As we discussed a ways back, if you want to get some where, first you need to know where you’re going (or you could end up any where…). When climbing the ladder of success, you need to be sure that you’ve leaned your ladder against the right wall.

Once you’ve gotten clear on that, one of the other major stumbling blocks most of us run into is to think that our dreams will come to us in one specific way, and that way only.

Dream – marriage. Wrong route – just like my parents had.

Dream – professional success. Wrong route – through a field that most people think of as sucessful

Dream – serving the Universe. Wrong route – working with people in poverty overseas.

(By the by, when I’m listing these things as “wrong route”, it doesn’t mean that this may be the wrong route for you. It may be your perfect route. These are just common examples of how you can be heading the right direction, but get sidetracked by an expected route off of the way that you are supposed to reach your dream…)

Some times we get so set on reaching our dream by a particular method, that we lose track of the fact that there’s another (or several other) ways to get there that would be easier, quicker, more pleasurable.

It’s like if there’s a big traffic jam on the highway,

You can get on and sit there listening to the radio and going nowhere for a couple of hours…

Or you can take an alternate route and be there in 15 minutes….

Feel like you’re banging your head against the wall in trying to reach your dream?

Then it might be good to stop, step back, and take a good look at whether you’ve gotten so attatched to getting your dream in a particular way that you’ve closed off the avenues to better options…

We’ve been talking about blocks that pop up in the path of manifesting what we want. Sometimes these blocks are there to test our commitment to our Dreams, or to develop the strength or other skills we need to achieve what we want (kinda like an exercise program with weights, no?)

But what causes these blocks? Why might we even create blocks?

There are¬†a number of¬†options here….

First, we¬†might need to¬†take a step back and figure out if what we’re asking for is really what we want.

Many times, we think we want a certain item, when what we actually want is something we  believe that item will bring us ( for instance, the person who thinks he wants a sports car, when what he actually wants is to feel young and attractive.)

Second, we can look at whether we have beliefs (conscious or unconscious)¬†that are in conflict with what we’re asking for.

Like “All of the good men are taken.” or “Rich people are unhappy.”

Third, we may need to check if we are being too attached to getting what we’re asking for in a particular way, and ruling out other ways for it to arrive.

Like the person that is so attached to winning the Lottery that he closes out the possibility of writing a best-selling book.

Tunnel vision, contradictory beliefs and mistaking what one really wants are three causes for blocks to manifesting things that are on your path.

And there are ways of overcoming these obstacles…

More on the way…
