Living Life More Abundantly — Identifying and Addressing Blocks Part 1
Posted by Second Chance to Live on July 30, 2012
Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. In my experience, I discovered that there were blocks that got in the way and hindered my ability to receive and grasp who I was created to be in this life. In my experience, I discovered that these blocks served to keep me confused, baffled, isolated and distracted. In my experience, I discovered that these blocks served to deplete huge amounts of my time and my energy as I sought to live my life on a daily basis.
In my experience, I also discovered that I had subsequently used huge amounts of my time and my energy to justify and defend the credibility, validity and legitimacy that these blocks had on my life.
I like visual metaphors, as they help me to understand concepts and ideas. One such visual metaphor is that of a hose. A hose provides an opportunity for something to flow freely from a source to supply a substance that in turn is designed to bring energy and life. The hose essentially works as a conduit or channel. If the hose is blocked in some way, the substance flowing from the source will be slowed and hindered. The greater the blockage, the less ability that the hose will have to allow the substance to move freely through the hose to bring about energy and life.
As an illustration, one of the reasons why heart disease occurs is because the arteries supplying the heart become blocked by a build up of cholesterol and other substances on the walls of the arteries. As arteries supplying the heart become increasingly blocked, so does the heart’s ability to function properly. As the heart’s ability to function properly declines, so does the hearts ability to supply energy and life through oxygen and nutrients to the entire body. The greater the blockage, the less ability the heart (source) has to supply energy and life to the entire body.
The good news is that there are treatments for heart disease that will correct or work around blockages in the arteries to and from the heart. Once these treatments are implemented, sufficient blood flow to the heart resumes which in turn enables the heart to pump oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the entire body.
