Free Reading: What’s Holding You Back?

Do you ever feel like something is holding you back from creating the life you want? I think most of us feel like that at some point. As a medium who communicates with Spirit Guides (angels and other spiritual helpers), I’ve learned that we are much more capable of greatness than we sometimes realize. This reading can help you learn how to move past any obstacles you place in your way and keep moving forward.Free Reading: What's holding you back

To get your message, take a few calming breaths, ask to be led to the message you need to hear today, and then pick the card that you feel drawn to. Scroll to read your message.

Fairy 1 by Melanie Jade Rummel

Did you pick card number one? When you hold yourself back, it’s usually because you fear failure. You worry that you will look stupid in front of other people or that you’ll put all your effort into something and it won’t work out the way you want it to.

Your Spirit Guides want you to know that your life is for exploring and experimenting, so give yourself the freedom to try new things. If something doesn’t work out the way you expect it to, you’ll think of something else and keep going. We are all doing the best we can in each moment, including you. Give yourself the freedom to try new things, and tell yourself that you’re still awesome, even if things don’t work out according to plan.

Fairy 2 by Melanie Jade Rummel

Did you pick card number two? When you hold yourself back, it’s usually because you feel the need to be perfect. You worry about taking the perfect next step or being an expert at something before you begin.

Perfectionism is really an excuse to be unkind to yourself. It is self-defeating. You are too precious to warrant that kind of treatment anymore, so it’s time to let that go. Your Spirit Guides want you to know that needing to be perfect before you begin will starve the world of your wonderful gifts. You will always be learning new things, but in this moment, who you are and what you have to offer is enough.

If you are looking for the next step to take, just take any next step that sounds good to you. What you’ll learn from that step will lead to your next step, and so on. Who you are and what you can do is enough. Let go of the idea of perfection, and allow yourself to BE.

Fairy 3 by Melanie Jade Rummel

Did you pick card number three? When you hold yourself back, it’s usually because of self-critical thoughts. You have periods of being your harshest critic, and those self-defeating thoughts drain your energy and make accomplishing your goals feel like an uphill battle.

Your Spirit Guides want you to know that you are the most beautiful being of light, and they are filled with awe when they look at you. You can decide from this moment forward to monitor your thoughts and to not listen to any thought that puts down your brilliance. Those thoughts don’t help you, and they prevent you from sharing your beautiful spirit with the world. You are deserving of love, gentleness, and compassion, especially from yourself!

Fairy 4 by Melanie Jade Rummel

Did you pick card number four? When you hold yourself back, it’s usually from lack of trust. You know that the universal loving spirit is there for other people, but do you trust that spirit to be there for you? Do you remind yourself that things are working in your favor and in divine timing?

Your Spirit Guides understand that it can be hard to keep trusting and having faith, especially when things seem on the surface to not be working. But rest assured, you are not forgotten. You are being helped in a million ways, and your wishes have been heard. Give it a little more time, and trust that the loving spirits will help you in your life. Your Spirit Guides say, “Give us time to show you that you are loved and supported, sweet one.
