Resistance may not sound like a sexy topic, but it’s HUGE and we need to pay attention to it because it shows up EVERYWHERE!
Everywhere I look right now I feel an undertone going on around this. With all that is going on in the world, lots of people are growing and shifting. This is exciting, BUT it also creates the need for us to be aware of our own resistance. This is the ego trying to keep us safe and small.
Be WISE to this!!
In one of my 7 Energy Archetypes, I address this resistance because it so prevalent.
There are 2 main ways we resist. The first is by resisting ‘what is’ – the natural flow of things. This is what you don’t have control over such as the cost of living, line-ups, traffic, bills, taxes, weather, the way people are. THESE THINGS JUST ARE, and often we don’t even consider it as resistance because it’s become so ‘normal’ to resist these types of things. It’s like we have been programmed.
But it’s important to remember that no matter how subtle, this form of resistance is still wasted energy AND as you know, what we resist, persists! But here’s the thing…
RESISTANCE causes unnecessary suffering!
The good news is that it’s easy to shift the obvious stuff. With a little awareness, you can catch yourself doing it and choose differently.
Sometimes this resistance can be a little sneakier, such as when we have a desire/goal that we’re focussed on, yet we simultaneously, unconsciously block it from coming to fruition.
How? We do this when we doubt it, question where it is, wonder why it hasn’t shown up or focus on it not being here yet. ALL resistance.
If we are not where we want to be, we have resistance.
So ask yourself what is the thing I do that keeps my desires at bay?
The second way that we resist is more serious. It can show as the ‘YES but’ syndrome. It happens when we feel called to do something; a pull on our heart strings, BUT we hold back out of fear, doubt or worry.
This resistance will wreak havoc in your life – and the crazy part is that many of us go our whole lives like this.
Now let me ask you: What is your ‘Yes BUT’??? Where do you feel the call BUT then put the brakes on yourself? What is one thing you can do right away to take the brakes off you?
And remember, awareness has the potential to change everything. So pay attention. You are a creator. Live with more intention, so you can create what you want.
