I've recently had the realisation that most of the blocks that stop me from achieving the things I want in my life are due to a general feeling of being unsafe, of not being supported by the universe. The roots to this issue are deep, going back to my childhood traumas. It particularly showed itself in my love life, where I felt terrorised by feelings of abandonment and low self-worth. I've worked that out though, and become much more confident and happy than I've ever been my whole life.
But recently, being made redundant from the 9-5, and setting out on my own to try to make money independently, I've run into many road blocks. Mainly financial problems and procrastination. I've now realised that all this is connected to a feeling of not being safe. Or more accurately, a feeling of unsafeness. I feel unsafe when I think about my bank account, my future, my emotions, my thoughts, most things!
Having been learning about and practising the Law of Attraction as long as I have, I do believe the Universe is ultimately benevolent, and that the feeling of joy and safety is our birthright, if we can overcome our negative programming. But, on an emotional level, I still don't "get it" yet. I guess my inner child feels perpetually unsafe and that is showing up in my life.
Any practical tips or theories or commiseration on this issue? I think a lot of people do identify with this feeling on some level.
You may want to try this.
Write down how you feel when you feel unsafe. And how it pervading your life feels like. Don't hold anything back and write everything down... in emotional terms. Write also down how it physically feels like in your inner body (For example: "It hurts in my chest, like a sqaure shaped throbbing") Find one general statement that truly feels true to you. Or pick one, for example:
Now skim through what you wrote first about how you exactly feel about feeling unsafe. Allow yourself to feel as negative as you possibly can now.
Next go back to your general statement and ask yourself these two questions every 5-10 seconds or so and answer them with yes or no. Don't try to argue or justify things. Just yes or no.
Ask those two questions every few seconds and feel the difference between your negative emotions in your inner body and your one general statement. Do this for about 2-3 minutes.
Now choose another general statement or make one up and repeat the process until you feel completely neutral about that unsafe feeling. When you truly feel neutral, write down the statement "I feel completely and utterly safe in my life" and repeat the questioning process. If it still doesn't feel true, go back to your general statement again until you feel neutral. When you truly feel neutral now, go back to "I feel completely and utterly safe in my life" and repeat the questioning process... etc.
Do this process every day and you will gradually neutralize all limting beliefs and table legs until you feel just wonderfully safe.
It is enough to use those simple general statements.

I am telling you the truth nothing is eternal in this world of duality. You are a passer-by. This flesh will pass away the creation in this world will pass away and become obsolete and will be replaced. But the spirit that you are created in the image of God will never pass away. Blessed are the peacemakers. The dust will return to dust and the light will return to the light. Find a place to rest before you become a carcasses. The inequity of this world might make you afraid, for a little while, because people judge and need praise from other. You came to this world to experience and enjoy and grow. do not get stuck in the duality and inequity of this world. Look for the living one as long as you can.
Let there be light, Be the light that you can be, Experience and enjoy.

usually by now you have formed a belief of being unsafe at an unconscious or even conscious level... even the financial blocks have been formed in your phsyche... many times people say its your belief and you need to change that belief or energy or vibration...
all well and true - but how?
its hard in some cases like these to get out of the block to more positive helpful state of mind by following intellectual reasoning alone. Thats why masters recommend something like meditation and going inner and to slow down your thoughts etc. So you need to use tools that take out of your normal consciousness levels. Its like taking alcohol or drugs that bypass your natural states. Except meditaions, breathing techniques, affirmations, yoga etc... you can also do something you love where you truly forget everything and engross into that activity. Usually spiritual masters recommend mediations or breahting techniques as a more of sure shot method. Since if you do other activities sometimes peopel still engage their logical thinking. Exmaple someone loves acting but while doing it they constantly worry how good they are. Then this method will not work for them. but if you are engrossed in acting and thoroughly enjoyed that you forgot about time, eg 3 hrs go by w/o knowing then at this point you have bypassed your normal conscisouness and during that time you could get great inspirations to move to next level even in a different area like finances.
So you should as a 1st step try different methods and see which one takes you out of your normal consciousness and you seem to like and then use that on every basis is possible. Then that would shift you slowly.
Note - in reality intellectual thinking and analysis is also powerful - so never discount it. but if yoru normal soncsiousess around a subject is negative it may be hard to change just based on this for many. But lets say you have a great time playing a sport and your vibration is great and you are loving it. Then in that case you should use intelletual and Superconcisous states together and you will have full power in that activity.
Ideally you want to use all your faculties.
