Feeling Trapped In A Past Pattern

Posted on Oct 16, 2016 | by Brenda Stanton

“You hold the key to set yourself free. Will you weild this magical power to unlock yourself from the past or keep yourself trapped in it?


When you feel trapped in a past pattern where you know you want things to change, but you can’t seem to figure out how to bring about that change – you feel powerless and stuck.

What can make this feel even worse is, seeing everyone in the outside world going about their existence – and witnessing others experiencing what you want.

This is frustrating to say the least – and certainly disempowering as you begin to hear the negative thoughts creep in: How come they can and I can’t?

How can this be when you use the law of attraction in other areas of your life – and you witness what you think about coming about?

Yes, the law of attraction is exactly that – law. It works every time.

What also works every time is, when you go to make a change in an area of your life where you’ve been stuck for quite some time, you experience an energetic block in you that keeps you from what you truly want. This block is something that you can’t put your finger on – it’s unconscious and it’s frustrating to not know what is keeping you stuck.

To help shed some light on this, consider an area of your life that you’ve had the aformentioned experience with – an area you care deeply about – where you feel powerless and stuck to change it.

Now, ask yourself: Who modeled to me early-on in my childhood extreme joy, freedom and happiness in this area? Anyone? Bueller?

Seriously, did you have your greatest role models (your parents or parental figures/guardians) show you exactly what success looked like in this area? Or did you witness them struggle with a very similiar pattern?

As children, especially – intuitive, sensitive and empathetic children – we learn to model and mirror our parental/authority figures early on.

And, most of us, often make a conscious decision to be different than our parental figures in certain ways – I believe it’s each generation’s way of evolving.

Yet, what you probably don’t realize is: the modeling and the mirroring you did with your parents as a kid doesn’t leave you – it lives within you as energy. This energy is what you feel when you feel powerless and trapped. It convinces you (without your conscious knowledge) that you must continue to mirror and model what you saw your parental figures do and BE.

Again, you have most likely created a very different life than what you parents experienced – out of conscious choice. Yet, when it comes to the areas that are the nearest and dearest to your heart – the areas that probably scare you and fill you with excitement and joy at the same time – how expansive and truly self expressed have you become?

If you know you’re trapped under some past patterns and programming – then the GIFT you can give yourself is to give attention to this energy that lives within you and rather than instinctively want to get rid of it – embrace it, love it and appreciate it.

Then, ask yourself, how you can I give myself the GIFT of permission to be set FREE and expand beyond my parental figures in this area that I deeply want to change?

The choice is yours to wield this energy in the direction you wish it to go. Once you become aware of the block, nothing and no one can hold you back.  As always, it’s your choice. You hold the key to unlock the cage – and in Truth, there is no cage.
