📺 IWFGG | Is It an Emotional Block or an Intuitive Block?





00:00:00.890 --> 00:00:30.369

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Hello, hello, and welcome to Inner Work for Greater Good. My name is Emily Eldredge, as always here to help guide you through inner work that can accelerate your power to change the world. And if you haven't seen any of my previous episodes, please watch the previous ones. It really lays out the whole ChangeLight System, which is what I created, which is really an emotional education system that simplifies a lot of what's going on inside. And plus If you're in our community ChangeLight dot world.


00:00:30.380 --> 00:00:59.010

Uh, you can actually learn the techniques that I created that I teach my signature. Technique is the Drawing Out Process out process, and that's where you can learn how to draw out, not just your inner struggles, but also your inner strength, so that you can feel more whole clear and at piece, to truly live your Truth and make whatever difference you are called to make. So i'm so happy to have you here. Um Today we're gonna as always I've thought about What What do I want to talk about this week, and usually it's something that's kind of


00:00:59.020 --> 00:01:21.160

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: been crystallized for me, you know, this week, or been an issue that I've run into. Oh, by the way, I you know I I do have a different background, as you can see if you know my shows. Um, i'm actually my Parents' house in Vermont right now. So guess that's the bed i'm sleeping on. In any case. Um welcome. Um! So what I there's there's something that's actually, I should say, been really um


00:01:21.200 --> 00:01:51.159

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: sort of reinfor like brought to my attention the past few months. And um! It's just been an interesting kind of realization for me personally, and that has to do with inner blocks. And the thing is when it comes to inner blocks. Um, I mean, we all feel blocked in different ways, right and in different areas of our lives. Sometimes we feel blocked in our relationships. Sometimes we feel blocked just getting out of bed. I mean there are all kinds of inner blocks that we experience,


00:01:51.170 --> 00:02:19.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and I know for myself that whenever an inner block comes up, I well, after being pretty frustrated with the fact that i'm feeling blocked, I often will dive in and go. Okay, what's going on with me? Why am I feeling blocked? Where is this coming from? What's underneath the surface? Because for me, personally, when i'm feeling blocked, um, you know some people will say things like Well, you just got to push through the fear um, or you just got to push through the resistance, or what have you


00:02:19.710 --> 00:02:46.300

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that does not work for me? Period like it just does not. And not only that, I find that there are several reactions I have when I try to push through one is that if I try to push through those blocks personally, I am more likely to have a meltdown a lot faster. It's like something can just feel so overwhelming, and I just have a meltdown at some point. It also results for me in um.


00:02:46.310 --> 00:03:16.290

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I get tired more easily, because i'm having to go against whatever internally it feels like. It's getting in the way, or trying to stop me from doing whatever it is, I feel I need to do um, but also I I don't show up as well, and my work that I put through is not as good quality I found, because i'm struggling to create it as opposed to it, flowing effortlessly and naturally from me. So for me, I just found that when it comes to blocks that i'm. I'm always very acutely aware


00:03:16.300 --> 00:03:46.279

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: where, when i'm feeling blocked, and then I work really really hard to process the blocks. And you know, so that I can move forward with greater ease. And sometimes when it comes to those inner blocks, sometimes it can just be a matter of you know time. You just got to kind of wait through it. Sometimes it can be hormonal, I mean right ladies, sometimes depending on our cycles, or what have you like. We can have just go through periods where we feel blocked. And then, all of a sudden, we're fine, and it can just be something chemical. That's you know, that has this.


00:03:46.290 --> 00:04:06.319

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: There's a pattern to it. Um, I personally haven't really tracked that for myself, but it's something I think I need to start doing, especially as i'm, you know, getting older, and my body is changing and hormonally. Everything's you know things are changing. But my point of today's uh uh uh episode is to discuss, like,


00:04:06.500 --> 00:04:12.580

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Yeah, basically, as the title says, Emotional block or intuitive block. And here is why?


00:04:12.640 --> 00:04:40.440

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Because it's just It's so interesting. So I've I've shared in previous episodes. How I've been going through big changes with my work and my business end of things um, because, like I've hired people. And now i'm not just a sol entrepreneur. And I, you know, uh, you know, bringing people on to play different roles. And so through this process I've also been learning a lot more about myself. One of the things they say about entrepreneurialism is that it is like It is like the best like


00:04:40.450 --> 00:04:59.979

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: personal development thing you could possibly do, because it's not just about. You know, building the business. It's also really about having to work with oneself and discover attributes that one has, or you know, maybe triggers that we have, and really work through those. So that's obviously my approach to it to a lot of what I do and in whether in business or in life.


00:05:00.140 --> 00:05:27.229

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so all these blocks have come up over the past few months. Now I tend to approach blocks, as I assume that it's fear. I assume that it's fear that's acting up inside of me, and so I kind of want to go in there, and I want to heal the fear, and I want to process it in acknowledgment. Draw it out, do whatever I've got to do to heal those parts inside of me that are, you know, maybe wearing their ugly heads, or that are, you know, the little kids inside. They're like No, no, we're too scared,


00:05:27.240 --> 00:05:57.030

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and so I tend to. I realize one of my blind spots that I've had is I've tend to approach those blocks as automatically like. There's some kind of fear that I need to process. Now, mind you, those that's actually coming after many years before that of thinking that every time I was blocked it was some kind of universe thing and message, and saying, No, you're just not supposed to be doing this, and so I've actually been on the other end of it, where I assumed it was more of like


00:05:57.040 --> 00:06:14.140

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: intuitive, or a message or something, you know something something the universe was saying. No. So I realized recently that actually I've gone to the other end, where I just assume It's a fear that I need to heal, and I need to process. You know that it's not some, you know, universe sort of telling me to stop. It's more emotional.


00:06:14.150 --> 00:06:43.930

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: But There' been a number of uh situations and events that have happened that have finally made me realize that I've been a little too extreme on the other end. Now, of assuming that it's emotional, purely emotional, that I just need to process through it, and I need to, you know, break through the fears and then move forward, and um one of them i'll just give you a few quick stories. So one of the stories and see if this applies to you. See, if you know, as as always as i'm sharing these thoughts,


00:06:43.940 --> 00:07:01.130

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: ideas, and stories and experiences. See if you resonate with any of this. See if you are noticing that you're blocked in certain ways of your in certain areas of your life or situations. And just consider, uh, you know what what they could possibly be about. As I share my stories. So


00:07:01.340 --> 00:07:20.950

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: there's this one. So it first sort of came up, you know. Been a really big way. Um. In a number of months ago I hired a woman to be my sort of like operations Person and um, she came in, and you know, learned about the business, and then how all these great ideas and said, Okay, this is the approach that I think we should take


00:07:20.960 --> 00:07:28.169

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and laid it all out. You know, kind of as a consultant, if you will, and just said, here's you know our business coach Here's what I think you should do. Okay.


00:07:28.440 --> 00:07:58.219

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So I saw that, and I immediately felt this like W. Like, you know, and and in my mind I thought, Well, what's wrong with me like I've been saying, I want to hit these things I want to, you know. Get this stuff done so why am I feeling blocked like this? So I tackled it as I referred to earlier from like an emotional place. Well, maybe i'm just overwhelmed, and i'm nervous, and I So I go inside the blocks, and I process them, and they draw what I could, and I sort of you know, figure out what this was going on, what was going on with me


00:07:58.230 --> 00:08:01.860

so that I could. Then Okay, let's take action on these ideas,


00:08:02.450 --> 00:08:17.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and it just didn't work. I still kept feeling blocked and like this heaviness or this sort of like, No, And I'd be like, okay. I just need to keep clearing, and it kept going and kept going for for months or of Well, yeah, for actually a couple of months.


00:08:17.460 --> 00:08:23.559

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I would explain to her like. I know I need to move forward on these things, but I just can't seem to afford on them, and I


00:08:23.660 --> 00:08:27.269

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So I went to a place of what's wrong with me.


00:08:27.660 --> 00:08:41.570

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Um! Why, you know what are the fears that I have? Maybe i'm really afraid of success, you know. Maybe i'm really afraid of putting myself out there. You know all these kinds of yeah standard fears, and maybe some subconscious fears. And I did


00:08:41.580 --> 00:08:47.819

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: access and discover some things inside me that did need to be moved, but the blocks were still there,


00:08:47.830 --> 00:09:09.400

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and so long story shorter. Finally, what happened a few weeks? Um! I then brought another gal because we were gonna, you know she uh she's gonna be My, She's my sort of impact arm, you know, strategy and partnerships. And so, anyway, brought her on, and we were having a meeting. I I don't want to get into all the nitty, gritty details, but my point is that I left that meeting


00:09:09.760 --> 00:09:16.349

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: um feeling really upset, and it wasn't because of anything either lady said or did They're both wonderful ladies,


00:09:16.360 --> 00:09:37.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: but I just I felt really upset, and it's like this this Afterwards I was talking to my husband about it, and saying, like I I was just angry. I was like no, that's not what I want to do. I want to do this, and I just had this sudden something inside me just to go. You know you. You already know what to do, Emily, and that's not the right approach. And this is the right approach.


00:09:37.810 --> 00:09:43.589

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so it came up like this volcanic Truth. Really, this volcanic knowing,


00:09:43.820 --> 00:09:53.000

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and what I realized is that there was nothing wrong with me or no sort of new sort of blocks I needed to release


00:09:53.010 --> 00:10:10.380

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: to, in order to take action on that plan. It was more that the plan, as you know, perfectly sound, planned as it was, that you know that that my operations gal had had, sort of, you know, laid out that it was that it just wasn't the right approach. It just was not me.


00:10:10.390 --> 00:10:21.199

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It wasn't um how I wanted to go about it it wasn't, you know. I'm sure it would work beautifully for other people, but it wasn't me, and it wasn't really um


00:10:21.210 --> 00:10:40.309

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: trying to have impact in the ways that I wanted to have impact it Wasn't it wasn't really um, you know, receiving income the ways I wanted to receive income again. Nothing wrong with it but it wasn't me, and that that's what it happened is that the blocks were trying to tell me this isn't it. No, no, no, no, no, this is not it,


00:10:40.320 --> 00:11:08.170

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: but I in. But I made the mistake of thinking that they were more emotional blocks, as opposed to intuitive blocks as opposed to like Truth blocks. You could say that my Truth was trying to tell me this isn't right, and it took this explosive reaction out of me of like upset everything for me to finally listen to my Truth, which was saying, No, this is that's not no, that's that's perfectly nice, but that's not the way we're going, and that's not the best way to go for you.


00:11:08.180 --> 00:11:13.300

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So that was one story. Another one is a smaller example. But


00:11:13.360 --> 00:11:30.390

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I had the other gal that I said that I that I brought on like. So she's amazing. I've worked with her before, and she's just incredible. And so she had said, Okay, Well, I want to institute this program where we're going to be in. We agreed we're going to institute this program. She was great about getting my feedback. How did I want to approach it like everything?


00:11:30.400 --> 00:11:53.089

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And then at one point she said, Okay, Well, I want to really be able to talk to people about this program that we're launching. And so I want I need. I will need um a one pager from you. So the one pager is just a Pdf. And she sent me a few examples. So she set me up for success Right? She She sent me some examples, she said. Here's what I think it needs, but i'm going to need you to ride it because you're the one who knows your work better, et cetera, et cetera.


00:11:53.100 --> 00:12:17.820

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So so everything was completely sound, Nothing wrong with the approach, and so I had it on my list. Okay, I got to make this one pager I got to create this Pdf: and I have no problem, mind you, with graphic design. Um, I have. You know, things written places, so I could easily pull writings, you know I mean I could I? I had all the faculties to be able to pull this thing together,


00:12:18.290 --> 00:12:19.910

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and yet I was blocked,


00:12:19.940 --> 00:12:43.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and I was blocked, and it was blocked. And what did I do? Again I approached it from that perspective of Well, I just must be scared or nervous about something, or I must be, you know, all. I just have this. Oh, I don't have confidence in myself about whatever, and I just automatically assumed, without really questioning it, that it was probably some emotional issue with me that I just need to process and remove and heal, and then everything would feel better,


00:12:43.950 --> 00:12:49.679

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and i'd be able to create this one picture, which is not hard to do. I can do this,


00:12:49.870 --> 00:12:51.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and it just didn't happen,


00:12:51.760 --> 00:13:19.960

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and it just didn't happen, and it just I mean it was like weeks and weeks and weeks, and she's waiting for this, and she was moving forward with her stuff. But she's like waiting for this This you know marketing material, if you will not. Not the classical sense, but you know material to to informational material, to be able to share with people who would be interested in our project our program, and it just didn't happen. And then finally, one day, I don't even know what what precipitated this. But she and I were on a zoom call,


00:13:19.970 --> 00:13:34.060

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and finally, you know, we were talking about it again, and I said, I know i'm really sorry I haven't put it together. I'm so sorry, I promise you. I'm trying. And then finally, I think I just sort of blurted out, Well, can I make a web page instead?


00:13:34.400 --> 00:13:36.590

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And she goes, Yeah, that's fine.


00:13:36.820 --> 00:13:50.210

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I was like, Wait, and the thing is so. What? So literally? What had taken all those months of like feeling, resistance and blocks, and and what in a web page I I I literally made it like a day and a half with video and everything.


00:13:50.430 --> 00:14:18.609

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And what I realized from yet again from that experience is that it wasn't that I had fear about doing it, although I would say that some of my resistance I realized in hindsight was, I don't like it didn't like the sort of stiffness of a one page, or where it's like you have to craft it, and it's like this pressure of having to craft it perfectly, and then I wouldn't be able to change it, whereas web pages easy for me now, it might not be easy for you. It's easy for me, and that was easy to make,


00:14:18.620 --> 00:14:31.900

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and so all I had to do was just kind of like, Pop it up, put it together, you know, and then do the video and then done. And then if I saw at some point that i'd need to update it or add more information. I could easily do that. I go on the website. I change it


00:14:31.910 --> 00:14:46.329

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So for me the web page was a better option, because there's more flexibility. It's more dynamic. It's easier to then send a link for someone. And then there's a video of me. So it's more personal. There's just so many benefits to that.


00:14:46.520 --> 00:15:15.130

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It's all. My point is, though, that I had this block yet again that I assumed was something emotional, and it turns out something was trying to say that this not really the No, that's not really the way it's best for you, or that's not really the best way to do it like there's a better way to do it. And again, it was nothing wrong with what my gal had had suggest. It's a perfectly sound suggested. It had worked with her other projects that she done in other organizations,


00:15:15.140 --> 00:15:33.330

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and yet it just wasn't the best for me, working with the way I think of the way I tend to to like to approach things, or what I what, and I look at it now, and it's funny. Here's what happened. So I said, Can I do a web page? You said, Yeah, sure. I put together the web page in like a day, a day and a half, because I had to video it,


00:15:33.340 --> 00:15:43.489

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and I and she she, I sent her the link, and she said, Oh, my God, I love this, and she's like, and this is so much better than a one pager.


00:15:43.870 --> 00:15:50.689

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So it was funny, because even she agreed that this was a better approach. Okay, Third: um.


00:15:50.750 --> 00:16:19.350

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Third examples from a little bit more complicated, but it's a similar situation where again, this is the same gal where she's like wanting me to create some stuff. And so I was like, Okay, i'm working on it, i'm working on it, and i'm working on it. And but meanwhile it was kind of funny because I was working on one program. It's actually a program for children working on this one program. But my brain kept kind of going all these other places with other programs I also wanted to create. So finally, after kind of trying to rain my brain in and sort of struggling. I


00:16:19.360 --> 00:16:37.039

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I finally was able to get there with creating this children's program, and you know it's just this whole thing. But I still something didn't feel right, and i'd been blocked all the way, I mean. I finally just finally put it together, because it was like she, you know she's been waiting to be able. We've been wanting to share this.


00:16:37.050 --> 00:16:44.719

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so the point is, though, at one point. So I did the whole video and the whole course and um


00:16:44.800 --> 00:17:01.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: finished it. And then I watched the video. It turns out there was some sound issues, and then, not only after that, my computer died like just put one day just done, and had to take it to the genius bar and pay a lot of money to get it fixed. But the point is that


00:17:01.520 --> 00:17:31.389

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that gave me the opportunity to actually go. Okay, let me back up. Since I don't have. You know the updated program, I don't have the computer, you know. The computer had to go off. I didn't have a recent up. I didn't have it recently updated, so I had to just be like off the computer And just reflect. And I ended up creating basically laying out all these programs that i'm gonna create. And it turned out. And then I soon as I did that I felt so much better. I didn't feel blocked. I felt great. I felt excited. I was like, yes, my brain finally had


00:17:31.400 --> 00:17:42.359

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: it's way of creating programs for this for our work, for change, light. And so it's a long way of saying that I,


00:17:42.370 --> 00:18:10.339

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: in all of those stories I had felt blocked. I'd felt this heaviness. I felt this. I can't I don't know I can't do this. Come on, It's so easy. So my left brain. You know my cons like analytical, conscious mind, or whatever was like. You can do this, i'm like, Come on, You know your work. You know how to make this, you know, like, Come on, what's wrong with you like. You can do this. But I kept feeling blocked. So then I just assumed. Well, it must be emotional right. I made that mistake. I immediately assumed it was emotional. Now it


00:18:10.350 --> 00:18:24.249

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: There were some emotional things under there, but that wasn't the main thing, because even after I cleared the emotion, the blacks were still there. I was still feeling this resistance to doing whatever it is that this person had asked me to do, or I thought I should be doing.


00:18:25.050 --> 00:18:38.970

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: It's a long way of saying, I think you get the just by now that not all blocks are emotional and just like not all blocks are intuitive. Not all blocks are emotional, and so what it's it's so.


00:18:38.990 --> 00:18:52.430

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Part of the it might be. My intention of doing this episode is to say, when we have a block, it's really important that we determine the nature of that block. Where is it coming from? Is it emotional?


00:18:52.440 --> 00:19:19.899

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Or is it intuitive? Is it some part of you with some wisdom that says, Yeah, okay, you could do it that way. But actually, this is a better way, and you may not be getting the answer about what the better way is yet. But the fact that you're feeling blocked may actually be trying to show you that. No, no, no, this is a harder way to do it. There's a way. There's a way that works better for you, or there was a way that's more effective. That would also be easier for you,


00:19:19.910 --> 00:19:48.980

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you see. So that was the lesson that I learned is that Don't automatically assume that just because you're feeling blocked, It's emotional, it could be Actually, there are. There are actually other reasons, I would say, for being blocked. But being blocked, you could be emotional. It could be intuitive. It could be a timing issue that you don't know, like it could be. There are other things happening, um, you know, in the unseen, or that that's not immediately um that you're not immediately aware of


00:19:48.990 --> 00:19:52.080

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that, like Maybe other things need to line up


00:19:52.090 --> 00:20:20.390

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: in order for you to therefore be able to move forward, and that when that block is removed it could be that. Okay, Now it's ready. So it could be more on like an energetic spiritual, whatever level. But my point is that we can be blocked for all kinds of reasons. And so when I thought to myself, Okay, well, how can you determine what kind of block it is that you're dealing with? Right? Is that your next question uh? Because it was my next question. Okay. So how do I figure this out? And I can't.


00:20:20.400 --> 00:20:29.249

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I claim to have really sat and like, really analyzed this really deeply and tested it out. But I would. But I I know a few things now. Um


00:20:29.420 --> 00:20:35.380

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: sorry that's I. Song just came to mind from into the wood. I know things now


00:20:35.410 --> 00:20:46.429

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: is Little Red Riding Hood song from into the woods. Uh, but anyway, I know things now, and um. And so what I would say is when you're feeling blocked. Here's what I would recommend,


00:20:46.620 --> 00:20:49.980

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and this is what i'm going to do, too, if i'm feeling blocked. I'm going to first


00:20:49.990 --> 00:21:19.909

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: ask myself, is it? Is it um fear like? Is it a motion based right? Is there, even if the block like, even if it feels at first like It's just kind of a block and heaviness You still, I find, still gonna go in there, because what can happen is, there can actually be fear inside that block, even if it doesn't seem like it on the surface. It could be that, you know you. You're not feeling an emotional connection with the issue with the block within the block. But you gotta kind of go deeper, because sometimes it can be like that. There is an under


00:21:19.920 --> 00:21:26.350

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: fear that's not. You're not immediately aware of That is really fueling it.


00:21:26.360 --> 00:21:56.349

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So it is important to go and ask, Is this fear? Is there is is fear underlying this block? Is fear trying to stop me. Okay? Well, in that case, if it's fear, what am I scared about? What are the fears and doing the processes to like for me. I draw out. I do the Drawing Out Process out process, ask questions, feel like, let the body speak. Let wisdom come through by really going into that block and and seeing what's there. Because there could


00:21:56.360 --> 00:22:14.370

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: some really legitimate fears that you have. And that's okay. It's okay to be scared, but it's by way of saying that. Okay, maybe it's fear. If you find, though, that you're going in and you're sort of noticing this block and tuning into it. And you're finding that it's not really


00:22:14.440 --> 00:22:26.479

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: that the fear or or there's no like emotional thing that's immediately present. Then you might be dealing with an intuitive block. You could be dealing with some part of your wisdom that's trying to say uh, uh,


00:22:26.610 --> 00:22:55.489

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: no, uh-uh like Don't waste your time, or you know this isn't right for you, or there's a better way to do this, or a better way to approach it. So that is not so much, I would say, like an emotionally charged block, as it is an intuitive block. As it is some part of your wisdom that's trying to guide you away from doing something or doing it that way towards a better, more effortless way that we're healthier way that will work for you.


00:22:55.500 --> 00:23:01.700

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And I would actually say that those blocks, the examples I gave you were those intuitive blocks that we're basically saying, like,


00:23:01.960 --> 00:23:09.159

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you know, it's not like It's not like the way I was gonna go about. It was unhealthy or bad for me, but it wasn't right for me,


00:23:09.170 --> 00:23:29.150

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and it wasn't the best way for me it wasn't the most effortless and easy and flowing and natural way, so it wouldn't have served me, even if if I try to push through those blocks, or I'd still gone forward. It would have meant more effort and more struggle and more pain. And I think that my wisdom was also trying to be like me.


00:23:29.160 --> 00:23:30.830

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: No, that's me.


00:23:30.920 --> 00:23:33.879

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: You need to kind of like. Look at other options here.


00:23:33.890 --> 00:24:03.450

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: So I also so, and then so. So that's where I think you can sit with that and and determine like, Okay, if there's no real intense fear here, there's no real like emotional charge going on here from within the block. Well, then, maybe maybe it is more intuitive, and I need to find a better way to do this, or I need to not do this thing. Uh, I mean, we can certainly be blocked when we are thinking of doing something that's really not healthy for us, and some part of us knows that, and it's trying to stop us. And yet we're,


00:24:03.460 --> 00:24:33.070

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you know, still trying to push through it. Um! I would also sit to by the way. Sometimes those blocks back to the emotional block. Sometimes those blocks can be, you know, from an inner critic. Um, who is telling you that you're not good enough, or et cetera. And in that case that's what I would call like more of an emotionally charged one. You know where you've actually got a part of you that's carrying some trigger. Some, you know, wound or or fear that you're going to get hurt uh from the past. So that's that's that's where I would say, but but again going back to my


00:24:33.080 --> 00:24:45.660

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: my stories and stories I shared here. Um, I didn't have an inner critic telling me I couldn't do it. I didn't have a wall that was like trying to protect me like I didn't have any of that. It really was just kind of just there,


00:24:45.670 --> 00:25:00.510

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: and I was the one who kept thinking that it was emotional. And if I could just get through the emotion, and it was like, No, that's not really what this is about. So it took a few experiences like this for me to finally realize that um! And then in terms of the timing block, so I would say it's


00:25:00.520 --> 00:25:24.780

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: you I I again. I haven't really done a whole like study of this. But let's just say, for for now the three options would be it could be an emotional block. Okay, So clear the emotion. It could be an intuitive block. Okay? Well, then, then, intuitively, something's telling me this isn't right, and I need to figure out a better way a better way for me to do it. Um, there could be more like um. I I don't know. The term that comes to mind is like a spiritual block. It's.


00:25:24.900 --> 00:25:39.520

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: I I don't know if that's quite the right work, but the point being it's like a timing thing where it's like. Well, um, it's just not the right time, and that maybe it's not the right time, not because of anything you can control. Maybe there's other forces other things going on that you can't control.


00:25:39.530 --> 00:25:51.349

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: And so it's a matter of just being patient and resting and relaxing, and then maybe doing other things in the meantime, until it feels right, until that block kind of lifts for you to take those actions.


00:25:51.360 --> 00:26:20.640

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: Of course, let me just throw this in here. But this is not my expertise. We can also feel blocked because of chemical stuff, you know, neurochemical stuff, or even because of what we're eating. There can be all kinds of things as always that impact our emotional well being, or our emotional sense of flow, or even mental flow. So just, you know. Just want to honor that always. That's always a consideration. I know that I've felt much less blocked and heavy, and you know, and and low energy, et cetera, since I eat


00:26:20.650 --> 00:26:37.179

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: healthier or eating at different times, or like I do, intermittent fasting, and I love it, and I have so much more energy. Um now, because i'm not constantly eating throughout the day. So, anyway, that's just a long way of saying that there can be different kinds of blocks. And so it's good to when you're feeling blocked,


00:26:37.190 --> 00:27:06.869

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: to be really just to to sit with the block and tune into it, to find out what it's really about, Don't. Just assume that it's there for this reason or that reason uh, and really see what wisdom it has to offer you um and and go from there, so I hope this has been helpful, as always. I know blocks are a big deal, and I know that we get frustrated with them, and I know that they stop us from doing things. But you know it's It's always good to find out what that


00:27:06.880 --> 00:27:36.839

that's really about, so that we can move forward in whatever direction, or sit or sit and be a piece uh with whatever is right Now, all right. So This is helpful, as always. I'm Emily at Changelight dot World, and our my work is a ChangeLight System, and ChangeLight that world and join our community. I'm like, I said, I'm going to be creating now that i'm not as blocked. I'm going to be. We're going to be launching some new programs to serve a lot of different communities actually to serve children.


00:27:36.850 --> 00:28:06.709

Emily Eldredge | ChangeLight: We've already got one for changemakers. We're doing one for inmates and also for coaches. And i'm developing that program uh which is going to be a more in-depth training program. So if you're curious or interested go to our website, and actually there's a page. If you, I think if we had our programs, you can see there's a page to sign up to receive updates about our launch of those programs so exciting stuff, all right, as always.
