Tag Archives: Overcoming Obstacles

Blinded By The Light

Possibly the most exciting phase of any project or relationship is the start up. The steep learning curve pushing you beyond your own personal glass ceiling into brand new territory, scary as it maybe, changes you forever as new knowledge integrates and overrides your previous assumption of capability and often your belief system which until you know that you didn’t know, how could you know that those beliefs were self-limiting?

It’s all very exciting (as I said) until you hit the first major snag or obstacle.

Obstacles are not put in your way to rob you of your joy, they aren’t some kind of cosmic karmic punishment, instead, see them as Divine protection designed primarily to alert you to an issue. Sometimes that issue is simply a need for more learning, sometimes it’s pointing out that you are heading straight for danger.

Let’s assume for a moment that all the obstacles in your way are mighty angels. (I like that image, I’m much less likely to try to barge through without stopping to acknowledge the awe and majesty of the being before me)… but that beautiful angel is still in the way, right? The difference is that now you are asking questions, your excited by the obstacles and you are positively buzzing about what you need to do to not only get past the problem but to actually make friends with it and make it your ally. Imagine having an angel on your side!

Now where you once saw a mountain blocking your path that sent you into child mode, stamping your little feet about why it always goes wrong for you, you now are being blinded by the light… light so bright that it blinds you to all but the solutions!

Instead of allowing problems and delays to steal your joy, allow them to shine a light on your potential.

May you be carried simply and swiftly into the slipstream towards your own miracles today.

What If The Obstacle Is You?

Do you focus on the obstacles or the way around them? This was the question I had to ask myself this morning when preparing to write a Grail insight.

Interestingly, I was the obstacle to my own motivation this morning when I awoke feeling a little out of sorts having witnessed a movie style dream scenario, no doubt unearthing deeply routed truths about my inner workings and the current state of my external life. The obstacle was an obvious Law of Attraction faux pas, I was focused on how I felt not how I wanted to feel.

My thoughts were dictating the direction my day was going and though a part of me was giving in to the momentum of going nowhere fast, my overall goals did not exist along that particular path. My goals being to feel joy, passion, fulfilment, inspiration and excitement in every moment from here on out. The goals had to be the motivation.

Choosing to look beyond the obstacle is often the most effective way of allowing Source to show you the route around or through it, creating a simply and swift path to the destination whereas when you look directly at the very thing that is stopping you from moving forward that will eventually become all you can see. I’m not suggesting that you slip into denial about the potential setbacks along the path… they are meant to keep the journey interesting, to provide challenge and diversity in the day to day of things but there’s a big difference between acknowledging what’s in the way and obsessing over it.

So what if the obstacle is you?

When what you want is a big enough ‘why?’ and the benefits to shifting into a higher gear outweigh the familiarity holding you back then you start to create the formula for revolution.

Use a visual trigger to remind you… I know vision boards are becoming a bit common place but there’s a reason for that. Stick some motivational quotes on the fridge door, get some pictures that represent your intentions, start describing your desired adventure and start taking small steps towards your new world.

Today I have mundane tasks to complete that don’t seem to have the potential to drive me forward… or do they? My goals as I said are to feel joy, passion, fulfilment, inspiration and excitement in every moment… so my mundane chores (done with a happy heart) are about to be the key to all those feelings… now let’s start with a magical walk through the enchanted forest just to buy some milk!

Look past the problem and witness the potential and remember that Principle 4: I AM Truth is an ever growing entity… “I reserve the right to evolve!”

Challenge Day – Moonwalking Across The Heavens

It is of course the 1st Monday of the month and so challenge day is upon us… As your friendly neighbourhood Grail guide it would normally be my job to set such a challenge for you but universally speaking I believe that the bar has already been set.

As a non-astrologer myself but a keen dabbler nevertheless, I have been all too aware of the tricky little f**ker that is Mercury in retrograde, pretending it is harmless whilst moonwalking across the heavens. Now for those of you who have chosen to remain sheltered from the wisdom held in the movement of the stars let me put it in layman’s terms for you: Mercury apparently governs communication in all its forms as well as having a hand in with the technology involved in the modern day methods of delivering such communiques. Now had we been living in 1916, ┬ájust 100 years ago that would probably mean that the postman’s bicycle got a puncture or the horse needed a good blacksmith… around 50 or so years later some fella would be robbing the post train… but today, well!…

So me, what do I decide to do?

For approximately 3 weeks, 3 times a year Mercury pretends like its starring in a Michael Jackson video, dragging all manner of haywire technical shenanigans with it and that’s my cue to attempt to understand a whole new digital platform for communicating sacred Grail text with you!

At the time of writing this post I have spent hours weighing up options, confusing myself senseless, undergoing mind-numbing long pauses while my internet buffers and crashes and then taunting me with promises of the answers I’m seeking before it laughs loudly in my face and asks “did you mean platform shoes?”

Anyway here is the thing I’ve learned in the last few days of cosmic cruelty:

1: Timing is everything… Principle 2: I AM Detached

2: An open mind makes learning easier… Principle 4: I AM Truth (and I reserve the right to evolve).

3: Laugh at your mistakes… Principle 3: I AM Human

Right then, consider this your universal challenge: don’t take anything personally… nothing is as it seems.

The Tunnel

Grail Oracle 7Grail Oracle Red

I have to admit I’ve struggled with today’s oracle combination because both it’s positive and negative attributes are at play in my own life at present, this being the case, I’m going to present to you with a neutral choice which could lead to either or…

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted meets the blood red root or base chakra in “The Tunnel” and with it comes all manner of manifestations… The question here is what do you want manifest?

Having an open heart requires a massive amount of faith and courage because it entails allowing control to shift as you let go of all strings knowing that whatever the outcome, your needs will be met. Check out the picture above, it shows magnified red blood cells that carry oxygen and resources around the body… now imagine if you will that your physical heart was blocked or closed off to these cells, what would happen? It doesn’t bear thinking about really does it? Energetically speaking when the grounding red energy of material flow is unable to be received and then released by a closed heart chakra life stops. I’m not necessarily talking about the physical death that the first instance would involve here though, I’m talking about an economic, material, social and emotional death.

It sounds appalling doesn’t it? And there I was promising you a neutral choice… Okay well let’s look at the alternative: an open heart and a positive flow of red energy elicits, physical vitality, abundant material provision, the removal of obstacles to achieving your dreams… do you like that idea better?

So given that The Tunnel is ahead of you this week, are you going to enter with absolute faith, giving up the need to know how you’re going to make it through, trusting God to provide everything you need and pull you out the other side, or are you going to grip the sides attempting to control the flow, jamming up the tunnel with everything that went before, all the baggage and fear that you’ve dragged with you?

You have the opportunity to witness a miracle manifesting this week… or you have an opportunity to stop one in its tracks… The choice is neutral, the outcome however…

More next week… x
