Breakthrough Your Resistance Part 1

Breakthrough Your Resistance Part 1

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.

Watch part 2: How to embody Non-Resistance and one of the Universal laws around non-resistance.



One year ago today, I was in New York. I was there as part of a business program.

While there I saw the musical, Chicago, toured the city by foot for 4 hours one night (can you say blisters?), visited Central Park, Rockefeller skating rink, and, of course, Times Square surrounded by thousands of others.

On my last day I visited the Empire State building (attached pic) and the 911 Memorial… I still remember how palpable the energy was and how it moved me to tears. I am SO grateful for the experiences and to have seen so much of this incredible city!

To say that a lot has happened in just 12 short months is an understatement! Who knew, right? Just 8 months later Covid hit. New York, one of the hardest hit US states, and the rest of the world changed forever… and keeps changing.

As I reflect, it makes me blatantly aware of two things…

1) Nothing in our outer world is permanent. NOTHING. Everything is transient. And yes, sometimes way more transient (and more drastic) than we’d like!

2) Even though I was super grateful for the experiences, I only recently realized that there could be another layer of gratitude. Like so many of us, I took for granted being able to hop on a plane, visit a new city or be amongst hundreds or even thousands of other people. I never gave it a second thought. (Sort of like the sun rising, the air we breathe, the roof over our heads… you get the picture.)

I believe what we are ALL going through is a time of awakening…

To adjust to this ‘new world’, we need to also adjust our gratitude. I feel it’s important we don’t fall prey to thinking there is less to be grateful for! (If you follow any of Dr. David Hawkins work and his map of consciousness, gratitude is calibrated at 510, where fear is 100. How we want to feel is a choice.)

For me, I have newfound gratitude… I am more grateful than ever for:

– My health
– My walks, hikes, runs, especially near the water
– The silly times with my girls (who are home safe and sound with me)
– Our little 6lb fur baby who teaches us unconditional love every day
– My ability to love, even it’s from 6 feet away (like my amazing 85 year old dad)
– The freedom to create my life on my terms
– My home and the food we make (even though I’m not the best cook lol)
– My tenacity and zest for transformation and those who have worked with me
– My audible collection 🙂
– All the incredible people I have met from all over the world in the last 4 months thanks to technology

I’m also grateful for the opportunity to share my thoughts here with you… xo

What newfound gratitude do you have that you might have previously taken for granted?
