breaking through

Breaking through obstacles with ease and grace doesn’t always come that easy does it?

So if you’re not quite sure how you can say yes to breaking through barrier and actually get it done, why not dip your toes in the water right here and see if we can’t get through the roadblocks together.

Tell me:

Are you fed up enough to be ready to say yes to breaking through any obstacles that hold you back?

Ready to discover your inner power?

Ready to jump to a higher plane than you’ve ever operated on before?

Ready to have breakthroughs in every area of life, without trying harder?

Because if you are, then life is prepared to say yes right back to you. Yes to breaking through obstacles that might have been holding you back for longer than you care to remember.

Life is prepared to give you the most dramatic breakthrough achievements you can imagine, where you can enjoy totally new levels of success in your wellbeing and health, in your relationships and financial affairs.

Let’s dive in right  away to three  power principles that can turn you into a Kung Fu Master of breaking through.  Handling those obstacles with ease, so you can take yourself to levels you’ve never operated on before.

1. Change your rules 

Think of it this way.  Doing more of the same usually gives you more of the same. 

It’s time  to shift gears. Your old, maybe successful, maybe not, but dependable rules you’ve lived by can became huge stumbling blocks to breaking through anything that’s currently standing in your way.. 

So get ruthless about trying something different.  Rely more on your inner direction than working out ‘how’ something can happen.

If you start to focus on what will be involved, you’ll get bogged down in methods of ‘making things happen.’

That’s just walking the same path you’ve walked before.

We’re always being outer distracted or inner directed.  So switch to the inner directed method for a totally different, more holistic way for getting through what’s holding you back.

Take time every day and imagine the outcome you want. See it in your minds eye. Live the experience in your imagination. Feel in your heart what it feels like.  And then go about your business in your normal way.

Feeding your subconscious mind with these images has a direct impact on you and your life experiences. Especially when repeated, at least once a day.

Your subconscious can’t tell time.  It thinks everything is now. So as you share thoughts, affirmations and images with your subconscious it believes them to be true.

That’s why when you watch scary movies, even though your conscious mind knows they aren’t true, your subconscious doesn’t and believes they’re happening right now. And you get goosebumps or those chilling feelings in the pit of your stomach.

So feeding your subconscious with positive mental images and words is vitally important and in a little while you will find yourself naturally having new ideas, and new thoughts.

Ideas and thoughts that will help you in breaking through those obstacles that keep getting in the way of the journey to achieving your dreams.

And that doesn’t count as working harder to experience more now does it?

Your subconscious mind being the magnet for events, experiences and people that show up in life just works quietly in the background…no heavy lifting required.  Pretty easy really…all you have to do is practice.

2. Suspend disbelief

What if you knew you couldn’t fail at anything you tried?  I mean really knew.

Right now your mindset is probably filled with doubts about how anything can be different in your life.  After all it’s been that way for so long. Right?

And you’re probably skeptical that things can change.

Switch that up.  Be skeptical of those doubts that keep you in place. Doubts do the most damage to your ability to break through the barriers to your happiest life.

Right now all you need is an aiming point (maybe the dream of success you want to see) and the suspension of old beliefs that tell you you can’t make it.

By following Number 1 and visualizing your arrival at your aiming point you’re magnetizing the ways and means.

So suspend all those old doubts and beliefs as often as you can during the day and remind yourself everything you need is within.  It’s always been there.  You simply haven’t learned how to access it yet.

The more you can practice this, the answers to getting from here to there will come to you…and they will be much simpler and more streamlined solutions.  As I said, no heavy lifting involved, just more ease and grace.

3 Plug into your power source

All of this can sound unrealistic, impossible maybe if you think of it as something you have to do on your own.  But it isn’t

Your willingness to suspend disbelief and to change your rules for living are part of the process of using your inner outer worlds differently.

This opens the door to possibilities that already exist, that aren’t visible to you just yet.  Your willingness enables unseen forces that I can’t even explain but that I know are there because I’ve connected with them myself, to come to your aid.

These unseen forces operate through your subconscious mind. Your conscious rational, thinking mind can’t connect to them. So don’t waste your time in trying harder.

Instead as you paint the picture in your mind that the first point mentions you might be hit with a ‘flash’ of inspiration.

If you fall asleep instructing your subconscious to bring you solutions and give you ideas, you might find the answers in a dream, or as you wake up in the morning.  I often get inspiration in the shower, or doing some mundane task during my day.

Somehow these ideas just seem to come clear out of the blue, except they don’t.!

They come because of youbecause you are tapped into an unseen energy that is designed to support and help you, but can’t play any part in doing so without you reaching out and tapping in.

And just in case you think trying harder will work, let me  tell you a little story about a fly.

There’s a fly desperately trying to fly through a glass window. Wings are whining as the fly tries ever harder to break through and get out into the world it sees beyond the window pane.

We know it won’t, can’t work.  No matter how much harder the fly tries, no amount of effort will help. The little creature is doomed.

And yet the window is right next to an open door – just a few feet away.  Easy flying time would get the fly there and out to its goal.

Why couldn’t the fly switch its approach to freedom?

Bless its little heart, it’s hopelessly using all its energy on breaking through the obstacle that’s preventing it from reaching freedom, whilst continuing to try more of the same only harder? 

But it’s just a little fly and doesn’t know any different.

You, on the other hand don’t have to stake your breakthrough on trying harder.

You my darlings have everything you need to breakthrough to that happy fulfilling life you desire.

You can plug into a remarkable power source, which you honestly don’t have to understand in order to use it.

Much like you don’t have to understand the physics of electricity when you flip a witch and voila, you have light.

So there we have it:  3 ways to have breakthroughs in every area of life, without trying harder.

1. Change your rules for success because doing more of the same usually gives you more of the same.

2. Suspend disbelief. Because right now all you need is an aiming point (maybe the dream or success you want to see) and the suspension of old beliefs that tell you you can’t make it.

3 Plug into your power source because you are tapping into unseen energy that is designed to support and help you, but can’t play any part in doing so without you reaching out and tapping in.

And the way you do that is by beginning to give mental directions through words, affirmations and images to your subconscious mind, which is ever connected to that creative power within.

Not only are you now ready to become that Kung Fu Master who can do more than kick all and any obstacle out of your way, you will also have learned how to build and maintain a life that helps your dreams come true.

Encourage one another.

  1. Thank you for this encouraging post and reminder. As you say, our self-talk creates our reality and our ability. Suspending disbelief and encouraging and supporting yourself makes all the difference. I know it has for me.

    • We seem to be members of the same club Debbie. The one that pays attention to how life is working and what we can do to make it work even better!

  2. Elle, I really love the idea of tapping into an “unseen energy!” I want to experiment with that. I’m lucky that I don’t have any major obstacles in my life right now, but there are repetitive thought and behavior patterns that could shift. These ideas will help!

  3. Wow, really? I stumbled across this website and instead of calling it that I shall call it “Insight”. You are magical. you bring out the magic in me. You are one of my angels helping me along my journey. Rooting for me to find my celebratory life I dream about. A life I have just now starting to co-create. I don’t know how, what, when, who, etc. I now know my dreams are not only possible but are just a doorway next to where I stand. Switching from gazing to walking through to the desired dream of a lifetime.

    Thank you,

    Love Chrysalis
