Anne Jones is an international spiritual healer, teacher, and author of ‘How to Heal. Anne will be sharing How to break through life’s blocks and barriers with us. She will be covering what causes blocks in your life, how imprinting works (on a spiritual, energetic level), and its impact on you. She will also be sharing six ways to clear imprints and blocks, including acknowledging what needs healing, clearing suppressed emotions, burning, letting go, healing, and walking through the fear.
How To Break Through Life’s Blocks And Barriers
Many of my clients feel they have more to offer and are frustrated by their progress in work or love life? Maybe you, too, find it difficult to find your way forward in life. This sense of being blocked manifests in various aspects of your life. Here are a few:
- Unable to find a suitable partner
- Difficulty in getting a job or role that suits you
- Feeling uninspired and unable to find any passion for life
- Attempts to improve your situation are thwarted
- Feeling that you have a purpose of fulfilling but can’t imagine what it is
What Causes Blocks
Blocks are barriers. They are the limitations that you unconsciously create that hold you back from happiness and fulfilment. They affect your self-esteem and contentment with your life. The most common cause is FEAR. But where does the fear come from? The culprit is one or more imprints that you hold within your psyche and spirit. Imprints are scars from your past, toxic energy remnants that hold memories and emotions caused by past trauma and upsets. They sit within you, holding harmful emotions such as anger, guilt, fear or hate. They send negative and toxic impulses to the brain creating negative thoughts and attitudes. They are explosive bombs of energy that can be triggered by people or situations, creating outbursts of emotions from grief to anger.
When you experience shock, trauma or sudden illness, your energy field is impacted. The impact creates an imprint that holds toxic energy – negative emotions and stored memories. This can be a one-off experience or a sustained period of trauma. An extreme condition of this is PTSD, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
If we look at our spiritual make-up, we will see where these toxic bombs sit and the harm they can do.
Your spiritual aspect can be seen as two parts: your Soul, which joins your body at birth, and your Higher Self, which stays in the higher frequencies of existence. An energy cord connects both aspects of your spirit through your heart. Your Higher Self holds memories of your past lives, wisdom, and life plan. This is what you intend to experience in order to grow and evolve; a to-do list for your life.
The scars and imprints from past traumas are held in your Soul-Spirit, and they negatively affect your mind, body and spirit. They can cause physical problems, suppressed emotions, and negative mindsets. They are the cause of the blocks and limitations that you may be experiencing.
The Impact Of Imprints
- Imprints lower the frequency and vibrancy of your energy field, mind and spirit, causing depression, lack of will, pessimism, exhaustion, and negative self-worth.
- Suppressed emotions such as anger, hate, guilt and fear create a negative mindset and low self-esteem, e.g. “Why bother? I always fail.” So, you can become your saboteur
- Constant negative thoughts create thought-forms, like clouds, that hover around you, contaminate your energy field and block the connection between your heart and your Higher Self. This inhibits your higher guidance and intuition, disconnecting you from your life plan, so you are working in the dark.
- Negative imprints also act as magnets that attract similar energies so that you will attract difficult situations, challenges, and people.
Six Ways To Heal Your Imprints And Blocks
When you heal your imprints, you clear the fear that limits you.
Acknowledge What Needs Healing
Firstly, ask yourself: do you have suppressed emotions? Do you feel the pain of events from your past? Do you have fears that limit you?
Start a journal and write down what you would like to heal. It can be an experience from childhood, and it can be a regret that stays in your conscience. If you don’t know the cause, still write down the symptoms and the triggers. Create a ‘To Make’ list; your intentions of what you wish to heal for yourself.
Clear Suppressed Emotions
Writing is the most effective way to release and clear old emotions that still churn inside and burst out from time to time as anger or resentment or create bouts of depression. Take loose paper and jot down every feeling that comes up frequently or feels out of your control. If someone has abused or mistreated you, write a letter – don’t send it – write it, expressing your side of the experience. Vent all bottled up feelings. Now is your time to let it out!
Burn your writing. This will transform the emotional energy that you have passed into the paper. As you watch your writing go up in flames, see how the paper burns as the burning will relate to the intensity of your emotions: smouldering, catching light slowly, creating yellow smoke or flaring and burning quickly. It is very satisfying to see this transformation, and it will make you feel lighter as your release the toxic energy.
Let Go Of The Past
If someone has hurt you, now is the time to forgive, accept and move on. By forgiving, you release your attachment to their past actions and set yourself free. This is healing for yourself. Take a thread that represents your attachment and then cut it and as you do so, see the chains of the past falling away. If you feel guilty about your behaviour, cut the cord and forgive yourself.
Heal the imprints by channelling love and healing energies into your heart and Soul. You can use this symbol to invoke the universal power of love. Draw in the air three times, and the energy will flow from your hands. Place your hands on your heart centre, in the middle of your chest and your solar plexus. Say, “I heal all scars and imprints from my past. All experiences are transformed into wisdom and all blocks cleared.”
Walk Through Your Fears
See your fears as doors that are there to be opened. Step up and challenge the energy that is holding you back. Visualise yourself accomplishing any ideas that come to you. Take back control and listen to your heart, not your head – what do you want to do with your life? Set up a plan and take the first step.
Good luck, and enjoy the future. I am sure you will surprise yourself! You can find more help and guidance for your healing journey in my book ‘How to Heal‘.
I hope you enjoyed that.

Fear causes so many issues!
What a great article! I didn’t know about imprints but this was very informative.
burning those feelings seems like a powerful and final way to let go of things … thanks for a beautiful post
I do love writing out my feelings. I have never thought to burn what I write though as a release! Great idea.
I love that you share burning as a way to help. There is nothing like taking a journal page and watching it burn to feel like it is all clearing.
