Lack mentality sees things as finite, like money, time, health, or happiness for example. There is a deep underlying belief that there is not enough to go around. It limits the infinite supply of joy and abundance that is available to us. Essentially a lack mentality cancels out the positive potential of any given outcome through fear-based thinking. Thus perpetuating scarcity in one's life.
This Freedom Block is connected to the root chakra, which has to do with feeling secure, stable, and abundant. When this block is operating, our own lights are dimmed as we give our attention and focus to a lack of what we have in relation to others.
This is one of the most common, and deeply rooted, blocks. It feels downright icky to be stuck in a spiral that you feel you can't get out of. It will typically manifest in the following ways:
feeling jealous, judgemental or resentful towards someone else's wins
fear of taking risks financially, even if you know it is best
a constant need to do more
the tendency to compare & compete
having a glass half-full mentality
problem-oriented (struggle to find solutions)
feeling like there is never enough
An abundant mindset is crucial for longevity & success -- it builds confidence and resilience, it will allow you to see the light through darkness, it will continue to guide & support you even when times feel tough.
To overcome a lack mentality, try the following:
recite this mantra: there is more than enough to go around. I am divinely supported and rewarded.
write a daily gratitude list -- observing the abundance all around you will help you attract more
commit to a daily self-care practice that feels really good. You'll develop deeper self-compassion & respect necessary to shift to an abundant mindset
Low self-esteem affects our confidence and self-worth, making us feel just plain bad about ourselves (hello, pity party for one). It impacts our ability to give and receive openly because we don't feel we deserve it, nor do we have the guts to ask for what we want.
This Freedom Block is related to our heart chakra! Your resistance to freedom comes from feeling unworthy, in other words, not believing in yourself. The inner critic is a vicious one, and it definitely runs the show at the best of times. This may also affect how we interact with others as there is an underlying feeling of being awkward, unlovable or incompetent.
Love is the highest frequency for attraction -- when we focus on what we love we become a vessel for giving & receiving. This attracts so much abundance and light.
Through conditioning and external experiences we may pick up this belief that we’re not good enough but that’s not true at all. To overcome this block, try the following:
Remind yourself that we all come from the greater whole, we are one & therefore each and every one of us is a worthy being. We all enter this world with the same opportunity to succeed as the next person
Acknowledge that your low self-esteem is a story you’ve picked up from past conditioning and doesn't belong to you. This can bring relief as it enables greater self-compassion & self-forgiveness, bringing you back to your purest self
Pay attention to the inner critic and for every negative phrase, rewrite a more empowering & positive affirmation instead. Read each one aloud, while forgiving yourself for ever believing in anything less than love. BONUS if you read them to yourself in the mirror.
Recite this mantra: I am loved. I am open to receive love. I am open to give love. Love surrounds me in every way, everyday.
Self-sabotaging habits are tricky because they often occur unconsciously so we aren't even aware we are doing them. These are self-inflicted behaviours that stand in our way of freedom like: negative self-talk, overworking, making excuses, procrastination, drugs & alcohol, and one you’re probably familiar with - the feeling of Imposter Syndrome. They keep you in a vicious cycle where we basically become our own worst enemy.
This Freedom Block is connected to our sacral chakra, where our emotional & creative energy comes from. When we are distracting ourselves from our highest purpose, we are neglecting our gifts & cutting off the energy flow to our most connected & aligned self.
Perhaps you’re distracting yourself with substance abuse by spending your weekends getting blackout drunk instead of spending the time working on your business. Or maybe you are making every excuse in the book as to why things aren't going the way you want -- whatever the reason you are putting off Freedom, girlfriend!
To overcome your self-sabotaging habits, try the following:
Become aware of the behaviours at play -- how are YOU standing in your own way?
Get real with yourself and dive into what the root cause of this habit really is.
Write out all of the ways you can start making changes today -- make them small, yet meaningful.
Write down all of the things you’re good at and love doing. Focus on even the tiniest of things -- then start doing more of them. Get those creative juices flowing again.
Are you preventing yourself from starting because you’re already playing out the scenario where you fail? First of all, there is no such thing as failure, only lessons and opportunities to grow. So if we shift our perception, we will see that there really is nothing to fear -- but I get it, you’re still feeling hesitant.
The fear of failure can be caused by other blocks such as low self-esteem or self-sabotage. It puts a full stop to achieving our goals, paralyzes our progress, and causes inaction.
This Freedom Block is connected to our throat chakra, our ability to express ourselves fully and authentically. It’s really about us not being connected to our own source energy and realizing that the world needs us, and it’s doing us and others a disservice by not starting and sharing our gifts and talents with others who NEED you.
Many of the most successful companies out there have had several shifts and pivots, redirections, “fails” but those all lead them to great successes. We don’t know what will work until we try and if you have a message & mission to share there is far more potential for massive impact than failure.
To overcome the fear of failure, try the following:
Visualize your desired outcome every day. Play out the best possible scenario so that with enough repetition, your subconscious aligns to make it a reality.
Break down your larger goals into smaller, achievable benchmarks that set you up for success. It's important to keep the momentum going.
Recite this mantra: I am a lightworker with a message to share. I authentically speak my truth for the greater good.
Fear of Judgment could be seen as a projection of self-judgement. Before anyone else can criticize or condemn, you do so yourself -- likely stemming from insecurities. When we get in our heads and let the prospect of someone maybe saying something negatively about our latest project, we give them all of our power. It keeps us small and prevent us from freedom.
The Freedom Block is related to the solar plexus. It has to do with your personal power and it holds so many people back. We let others control and dictate how we show up in an effort to save face. But in doing so you are giving up so much more.
It’s time we take back our power -- those who judge are not our people. True loved ones will support you and if they’re like my mom, promote the heck out of you! It’s an illusion!
If Fear of Judgment is affecting you, try the following:
Notice where you are judging yourself and how that is being projected.
Based on what comes up, what can you do to invest in yourself to improve?
Remember if someone is casting judgement towards you, it says more about their character than you!
Recite this mantra: I trust that when I am aligned, I am celebrated and honoured.
