I feel very blocked when I meditate. It's that when I start to meditate I can't really get into it like I used to be able to do. I feel as if I am chasing the experience more than I am chasing God. I feel blocked in a sense because I feel almost there but not quite there yet. It is extremely frustrating and make me want to entirely quit my sadhana. This block feels impossible to overcome not matter how many days I pray, not matter what I try. I don't what to do anymore.

This is a natural stage in your spiritual growth. Meditation is not always bliss. Sometimes it is hard work to keep up. Sometimes all your subconscious garbage comes out. Sometimes you feel blocked. This even happened to Guru Arjan Dev Ji when he was writing Sukhmani Sahib and got blocked after the 16th Ashtpadi. Your meditation is only worthwhile when it becomes your daily habit. Try chanting the mantra Guru Arjan Dev used to unblock the flow of Sukhmani Sahib:

"Ad Sach. Jugaad Sach. Haybay Sach. Nanak, Hosee Bhay Sach."

P.S. - Never chase God the chase never ends. Make yourself so calm, solid, radiant, and strong that God will love to come and sit in your lap. Let things come to you.
