5 Personality Traits That BLOCK Abundance

Written by Maria Flynn

A life of abundance includes feeling fulfilled, empowered, and purposeful.  Feeling out of sync in your life comes from your beliefs and from your subconscious (creating BLOCKS) and then they show up in your personality traits and in your habits—putting a BIGGER GAP between you and the ABUNDANCE you desire—reducing your energetic potency to attract more of what you want in your life.

If you feel like life is like a hamster wheel…and you can’t seem to break the cycle of mediocrity in your life,  it may be that you haven’t thought what you’re putting out there.  Sometimes the “nice” you do is really more of an obstacle you’re creating.

You’ll find that you fit into several of these categories, but do your best to choose which one represents you most right now in your life and explore how it’s serving you or NOT serving you:


This person avoids any kind of new way of thinking and doing simply because it’s unfamiliar and uncomfortable. Here is where you find a false sense of security and confidence by staying the status quo.

You fear failure most of all by doing things like staying in relationships, friendships, and in an undesirable job no matter how miserable you feel because you’d rather stay with what’s familiar and comfortable. 

You won’t even risk taking a little bit of time to simply explore what else is available for you. 


This is the mom, sister, or friend who puts everyone before herself.

You find yourself saying YES…

  • because you don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings…
  • because you’re afraid of what people will think if you say otherwise…
  • even it means sacrificing your own needs.


This is the person who avoids all things challenging and or “negative.”

You find yourself going directly to affirmations, visualizations, and reframe any situation immediately into a “positive” as a means to AVOID or BYPASS what’s uncomfortable.

Ostensibly, you believe that doing so is helpful and you believe you’re doing the “right thing” and that it’s “the way” to be.  This a habitual practice that you attempt to push on to others as a way to be “helpful”.

This is the biggest energy mistake that widens the gap between you and the desired results you want in your life because the attempt weighs in favor of skipping what’s uncomfortable versus transforming the energy. 


This person relies on their own spirituality or spiritual practice as a means to “heal” pains from the past. In actuality, they’ve not moved through the struggle with growth and empowerment because of it. Instead, they’ve found something that distracts them from it.


This person talks a good game but struggles most of all because they seek what DOES NOT EXIST—”life balance”. They may try new things but it ends up being short-term because life happens. So they’ll quit personal development programs, coaches, and put down that self-help book to deal with “what’s out of balance.”  They wait for tomorrow or believe the future will be a better time—when things “settle down”—and tomorrow NEVER comes.

My friend…

Life has many moving parts that must HARMONIZE with each other (no matter what’s happening in the world around you). 

The most important thing you can do for yourself is to support yourself and do the things that BOOST your abundance— empower yourself, your mind, your spirit, and your energy.

Fighting, debating, getting yourself frustrated over what you see on the news and social media is draining your very life source… your energy! 

You already innately know that you can’t trust the news, the so-called “facts”, and even the so-called “fact-checkers”—so why is your energy there and invested in twisted deception?


Habituate seeing the world around through the eyes of the Universe.  When you do you’ll see a greater truth and a greater lesson.  The connection to greater source is where your own inner wisdom (intuition) flows.

With deeper knowledge, you can then responsibly take action that’s Soul aligned and absolutely right for your life—creating future days that bring you closer to your wildest dreams!

If you can’t trust what you know and proactively take action on what comes through for you, then learn how to BOOST this natural-born talent in yourself.

Remember, what you FEEL is in direct alignment with what you INTUIT.  Oh yes… mastering your emotions is the key that’ll support greater days ahead! It’s why I created Your Energy Makeover

Until next time…
