3 Common Mistakes That Are Blocking Your Intuition
For the past several months I’ve been noticing a few common mistakes happening that can block your intuition – ones that are easy to fix!
These mistakes aren’t just happening to people who are new to listening to their intuitive guidance, it’s happening to people experienced with this too.
To be honest, it’s hard to be in the world right now, with all we’ve experienced over the past few years, and not have it impact your energy system and your ability to access your intuition… and if your intuition is blocked, it affects the impact you’re here to make.
The good news is you can become more confident in your intuition with just a few small changes and that’s what I’m sharing with you today.
- [2.20] That moment when you get a strong intuitive download and then the self-sabotage creeps in.
- [3.42] If you keep the thoughts, you won’t be able to make the impact that you’re here to make.
- [4.03] Why you should celebrate when your ego is showing up.
- [5.16] What hustle energy and working harder does to your intuition.
- [8.16] No amount of looking perfect can override when your energy isn’t aligned.
- [11.02] The trending reason for your intuition being blocked.
- [12.33] Ways to overcome the heavy energy of the collective right now.
- [14.22] Simple shifts you can do daily to help you free yourself of this.
Hey, listeners, warm welcome back. I am freshly completed with the Intuition Month challenge. I know many of you joined me, and I appreciate your participation. Boy, did I learn a lot.
And some of what I learned through that challenge I’m going to share with you here. Unfortunately, there’s just a lot of stuff in the air globally that is happening that is making a serious impact on all of us. No one is immune from it. Not me, not you.
And so, I wanted to dedicate this episode to really going over the three biggest blocks that are keeping you stuck and not able to access your intuition.
You know, I think the biggest thing is, we have to understand that the constant second-guessing yourself is not something that you have to just live with as an entrepreneur. I have it too.
You know, I’m not immune, but you can actually become more confident using your intuition with a few small changes.
And I really wanted to record this meditation or this nah, this podcast maybe. I guess I’m going to put meditation together too. But I wanted to record this podcast to discuss these big mistakes that people are making.
What I’m seeing trends across the board, not just in my business, but what I’m hearing from other people’s online business, brick-and-mortar businesses.
And these are simple things that you can really a tune yourself to and then shift. So let’s get right into and I’ll share these three biggest mistakes. I’m seen with some solutions because I don’t want to just keep you leave you hanging here.
So if you’re somebody who struggles to trust their intuition, whether it is like, Oh, I’m getting a hit, but then I’m like, Wait a minute, was that right? And I know was it right?
Or if you’re somebody who has been listening to your intuition but you’re just like feeling some weird energy lately. This is a big one that I want you to really pay attention to this episode.
So, number one, the biggest mistake I see this has been happening for years. This is not a new trend. This is not hot. This is constant, which is when you get a brilliant idea for your business, it feels so good. And it’s like everything feels like, oh, my gosh, this is magic. It’s aIign, I feel expansive, feels like everything in your body is a hell yes. But then you almost instantly shut it down.
And the reason why you shut it down is you have these negative thoughts of imposter syndrome. Who am I to do this? Someone’s already doing it better. Who would ever pay me for that? How could I charge that? Or I’m not an expert. These kinds of thoughts have repetitively held entrepreneurs back, myself included.
So one of the thoughts that I used to have was, I’m a I have a horrible voice who would ever want to listen to me, who would want to hear my voice through meditation? It’s terrible.
And so you all know at this point you’re listening to my podcast, which is an audio platform. So apparently 400 plus episodes and it can’t be that bad.
And the foundation of my business is truly helping entrepreneurs to clear their energy blocks and unlock their intuition and connect with their soulmate clients, through the Mastery & Ascension Membership.
Now that membership is also based on my voice, those energy healings are me speaking. And so if I kept that thought, I have a horrible voice. I would not be here doing what I’m doing today, making the impact that I’m making.
And so we have to understand at the root of that fear that, you know, you have a brilliant idea, but then it gets shut down. It’s our ego.
And so when your ego is showing up. Number one, I like to say celebrate because it’s evidence of your growth. If you were not growing, your ego would not be there because your ego is just trying to keep things the status quo.
So the fact that the ego even shows up to tell you like rotten things about you and put these terrible ideas in your head that you shouldn’t be doing what you’re doing, it’s like, Oh, I guess I am doing something. I guess I am growing, I guess I am expanding. And so that’s an opportunity to sit with that.
I want you to remember that part of what keeps you out of those thoughts is to have a tool that brings you back into alignment. So I know for me it’s a non-negotiable.
Like we just talked about intuition and like, I’m sharing these habits that keep me in alignment. And so when I have these, like, crushing thoughts, I know it’s just a thought.
And I have tools that I can clear my energy again and just come right back to my center of going, Yeah, I know who the F I am, so thanks for that thought anyway, ego!
I’m going to choose a different thought instead.
This mistake number two: you think that working longer hours and hustling, grinding it out is going to get you closer to your big breakthrough?
This is so wrong. And I know you know this and I know you’ve heard this before, but you cannot fake magnetic energy.
And sometimes we think we’re doing all of the right things, making the perfect Instagram reels, the perfect TikTok’s posting on a different social platform.
We’re emailing our lists.
We have all of the offers. We have a website with all the things, and yet something inside of you is off.
And you feel frustrated, you feel overwhelmed, your confidence is fading, and you try to just put on a smile and just like keep running things.
And maybe if you just put a little bit more time into it, it would work out. It just doesn’t work. And I’ve seen people at every level of the game, people who are just starting out trying to fake magnetic energy. I’ve seen people who are highly successful try to just like, you know, dial it in and we’re going to just grind it out here.
But you what happens and I know you have looked around, you’ve seen the people who have been the lead on the leaderboard. Let’s just say that way, the people who, you know, in the online industry saying, hey, guess what, I’m burnt out, I’m selling my business, I’m no longer offering this program. I’m getting out of this. You can get it’s like, a it’s like a fire sale.
Basically, they’re selling everything for nothing because they’re getting out. Because they cannot sustain that kind of business where they just push and push and push.
They can’t do it. And you already have seen it. This whole paradigm is changing.
So the good news, is that it’s actually one of the most common issues with entrepreneurs.
You know, you’ve seen everybody hustling and you’ve been maybe tricked into believing that you had to work hard to make money.
It’s been passed down through generations that you have to work hard to make money, and you cannot do your best work as a leader when you’re out of energetic alignment.
And I know many of you, probably all of you listening here at one point have seen me on Instagram or on Facebook or on my YouTube channel, kind of look in, you know, with no makeup, no hair done, no fancy clothes, just kind of showing up. And you have maybe felt the impact of the energy that I put out there.
What I get back is people saying, wow, Emily’s the real deal. Her energy is amazing. Wow, that was so powerful. I was brought to tears. I can’t even believe what just happened. This is incredible. My whole system. I feel this incredible improvement in my thoughts, my energy. I feel incredibly aligned after connecting with you.
And so I’m here to prove that you don’t have to put on makeup and have the best hair and the best cameras and the best lighting and all of that, because it doesn’t matter if your energy’s out of alignment. You can show up looking like I do sometimes.
Sometimes I really get myself put together. But there are just times where I’m like, I don’t have time. Like right now I’m recording this, but this, this. I keep saying meditation. I’m recording this podcast and I just had my team meeting. I haven’t done my hair and makeup. I just am here like, I got to share this. I got to share it right off my heart because it needs to be heard.
And so what you need to overcome this hustling, is to be surrounded by people who understand that, that model does not work. And that they are not going to subscribe to it.
I know for me, having some of my best friends who know how to rest, who know how to pause, who know how to wait. They’re not just struggling and like fishing and like throwing anything out there.
So this is an opportunity to understand how you can get into alignment with that rhythm inside of yourself.
And one of the things that I’m here to be is a guide. So whether it’s in my membership or my coaching programs or my certification programs, I’m not here to give you my ten-step plan of success, because I know it’s total B.S. It’s not going to work for you because whatever worked for me, even if you replicated it to a tee, which let’s be honest, most people can’t. But even if you tried to, it might not work for you.
And why is that?
Because I’m on my own life path and so are you.
So that’s why when you buy other people’s online courses and programs, most of the time you don’t even do it. There’s a 93% chance that you’re not going to complete it. That’s just a statistic. This is not a judgment.
Look at your online database. Like, what courses have you bought? Which ones have you completed? Had you do them 100%? How were their results?
Now there are plenty of it’s not against the course creator or the course itself, it’s just human nature.
And so that’s what most online course creators are leaning into, is like they’re going to know that they’re going to sell you this program and this promise, knowing full well you’re probably never going to even do it.
And why don’t we do it? Because of that mistake number two, we think we have to work harder. We don’t. We have the tools and resources, but we’re not even leaning into them. And so it leaves us strained.
And that leads me to number three.
This is the one that I’m seen trending, which is that maybe you’ve been feeling moody, energetically drained, exhausted, and you think you’re alone.
Now. You are not alone, friends. We are all experiencing this. We are all experiencing this global trauma we’ve been enduring for years.
And right now, more than ever, there are some very intentional thoughts being programmed into us on social media, in the news, in our families, and part of this collective consciousness, unfortunately. So even if you’re not really on social media, you don’t watch the news as you’re still tapped into the same collective consciousness as everybody else.
So you might be second-guessing your dreams and worrying about money stuck in constant fear. And this is just become a kind of expected norm. And I saw it in Intuition Month. I felt that in myself personally, and people have been affected in a very serious way. You might be one of them. In fact, I know you’re one of them.
And there’s some ways out, there some ways to overcome this for yourself personally, as well as helping your clients and community.
And I want to just say this. You’re experiencing that. And on top of it, you’re an entrepreneur. You’re just trying to help people. Right.
And you cannot help others when you’re feeling run down and lethargic. And trust me, I know this to be true.
And something that I have had to do myself personally is to clear some of this like parasitic type of negative energy off of me, out of my energy field, and understand that this is not me. These are not my thoughts. These are not my feelings. This is not part of me.
And really been demonstrative and really been adamant about that and really been focused on clearing my system. Because if I couldn’t do that, I would be sucked into that negative spiral. And it’s really hard to get out.
And so I think here’s the biggest problem, is that a lot of people don’t have the tools and resources to even realize that those are not your thoughts, your feelings, and those are not your emotions.
And you might be feeling energetically drained. But this is not have to do with you. This is something that’s happening on a global level.
But if you don’t if you think that it’s you think that your thoughts and you get sucked into it, you have no way out. It’s like you just sit and wallow in it.
So how are you supposed to be there for other people and help them when you’re feeling like this? You can’t.
So I have some tools I want to share with you to help you with this, because it’s my. It’s my soul’s purpose.
But I really believe there are simple shifts that you can do on a daily basis to help you to shift free from these feelings, as well as being able to be there to support others.
And I’m going to be teaching some of this stuff. And so if you are a coach or a healer now there are lots of coaches, right? Health coaches, wellness coaches, life coaches, mindset coaches, fitness business, aspiring to become one. You’re like, I really want to make a career change or healers. So there’s a lot of types of healers.
So if you’re an energy practitioner, Reiki, somatic, your meditation healer, you use crystals, you’re a yoga teacher or you do anything with tarot or Oracle. And this is also my hairstylist friends.
So you guys are going to be the most impacted. And so that’s why I’ve put together a workshop. It’s called the Intuitive Leadership Series.
And I believe what this leadership series is going to do, it’s a three-week series. It’s going to help you to break free from that broke stereotype.
The biggest challenge that coaches and healers are facing at the end of this year right now is that, like I said, people are experiencing significantly higher levels of stress, fear and anxiety, and they’re becoming afraid to invest in their health and well-being.
That means you could be out of a job. So I believe this is the best time. It’s ripe with opportunity.
You could totally explode into the new year, giving your soulmate clients hope for a brighter future when they work with you.
Unless you’re stuck in this heaviness too. And then you get, you know, you can stand out in a saturated market.
So in the workshop, I’m going to help you understand how to get yourself fully booked, how to stand out in a saturated market and some of the mistakes that might be depleting your energy and costing you money each and every day.

And I mean this promise because I am here to help a new generation and part of my work, which is also terrifying, I’m going to admit it, is that I’m here to break the paradigm that I was once a victim to, which is the broke healer stereotype.
And if you have been suffering, not getting fully booked, not getting the right clients, not having enough money, getting stuck in some of these mental traps like I was talking about fear, anxiety, stress, feeling yourself kind of just sucked down. This workshop is going to help you break free.

It’s like, oh, my gosh, I have to hold on to everything I have. But understand, as a business owner, these are investments. You make the investment upfront for your growth later.
