INSPIRATION HEALTH in us as blocks (our own, not the universe’s) and our awareness and understanding of them will allow us to address their impact and, ultimately, to overcome their influence on our spiritual quest. We cannot look outside of ourselves for the causes of our struggles. Although we possess within ourselves the unlimited power to become that which we desire and the spiritual world is an ally in our evolution to finding our true meaning in life, there exists within all of us a life history that has encountered pain, regret, and disappointment and in these experiences we had constructed false images of reality that caused us to imagine impossible obstacles and hopelessness.  Negative and positive energies produce nega- tive and positive vibrations and, once we recog- nize these energies, we have the power to deter- mine their influence on our physical, emotional, and spiritual being.  Of the energies that emanate from us, our blocks are some of the most influen- tial and often the most unrecognized. To become fully aware of our blocks, we need to see them as we imagine them (and we often conceive of them as external hindrances), then to take ownership of them, and, finally, to overcome them. I see blocks, especially with those on a spiritual path, as taking form in the following examples as expressions of our self-doubt and our belief that we are victims of uncontrollable events: • A fear of suffering and physical death that depletes our positive energy. • Medical issues that detract from the focus on spiritual growth. • A lack of personal confidence and a tendency to be overly self-critical. tual fulfillment are real and waiting for us to show up. The universe does all that it can do to help us become aware, comprehend, and accept the ideal state that is our true self.  Where do the hindrances to our success originate? What are the deterrents to our unity with the universal oneness that is the natural state of existence? How can we deal with impediments to our spiritual awakening? We cannot look outside of ourselves for the causes of our struggles. Although we possess within ourselves the unlimited power to become that which we desire and the spiritual world is an ally in our evolution to finding our true meaning in life, there exists within all of us a life history that has encountered pain, regret, and disappointment and in these experiences we had constructed false images of reality that caused us to imagine impossible obstacles and hopeless- ness.  Even as we move forward in our spiritual prac- tices, the r \YY\و\H\[Y[]HYY]]H[\\[ۜ[^H۝[YH[Y[B\\[Yܝˈ0\H\YX[[\Y\X[Y\THZYB(HHX\ \XK[[\[[]\H][&]\[\]Y[\ݙ\H[[ Y]]H[]]B[\Y\XBY]]H[]]BX][ۜ[ ۘBHXۚ^H\B[\Y\H]HB\]\Z[BZ\[Y[Hۈ\\X[ [[[ۘ[ [\]X[Z[˰
