Blockage

As I sit down to write once again I have run into the thing known by all writers. The blockage that prevents me from being able to share my thoughts in the mode I like. The question I periodically face is how to break through this "writers block"? What works for me is to write about it, and then the thoughts begin to flow for me again. This time my blockage is not because a shortage of ideas, this time I am faced by the on rush of ideas all wanting me to express what it is that they want to say. I realized that although the thoughts come to my mind the ideas are not mine. They have selected my being to express themselves through me. For the last two weeks I have been presenting either old ideas or others writing because I don't want to leave my regular readers hanging, nor do I want to break my circle of sharing things. This helps me probably more than it helps the reader. Through this blog I have found a tool that assist me in my never ending journey to SelfMastery™. In order to publish something everyday I have to take time to sit down on a computer or my phone and write.  At this point and time this is a personal cycle that I have developed for myself (I highly suggest setting up a cycle or system for yourself as well). This cycle or system is mine and it helps me embrace the power that is truly mines.
Understand that this blog is the result of years of preparation. I make many mistakes in my writing, and this fact has prevented me for years from sharing my talents.  I have identified in blogs in the past ( I highly suggest for all new readers to check out my archives) that FEAR is a major block and takes many forms. What I have discovered through my writing and the many classes I have taught fear has many faces. In Gye-Nyame we call these the unbalanced passions. Every last one of them are rooted in our personal FEAR. The unbalnced or deadly seven as we call them are (once again for those new to the journey) fear (the mother of them all because all of them are her), pride,envy, greed, sloth, lust, and anger. When we break these down we can see FEAR is the root. For myself I was to proud for many years to publish because I was fearful of people pointing out mistakes or giving their input. I had to learn to move past that and I ended up publishing many of my works. Im still finding mistakes myself and having others pointing them out and it is not as bad as I thought. Actually it is making me better.
Back to my blocks maybe these blocks come periodically to make me better, and If I push through, maybe there is some type of prize I can find. Hell who knows. Now to you what is blocking you? What's stopping you from moving to the next level with your skills and talents. Don't overlook the importance of knowing which of the deadly 7 is blocking you. In order to overcome one's enemy you must know his/her/it's face. So take time today to explore yourself and this will help you push through your blockage as well.
