Energy is in constant motion, and resistance occurs when meeting an opposing force.
Are you rushing the process, or forcing something that isn't in alignment with you? If you're having a hard time working through resistance, it may be because 95% of emotions and actions arise from your subconscious mind.
Uncovering (and then healing) the subconscious mind is a critical step in reconstructing your thoughts, resulting in change. When your mindset can shift, so can your behaviors and as a result you get to experience desirable outcomes.
What happens when you meet resistance?
Have you every had one of those dreams where you’re trying to run away from something, but you can only move in slow motion?
When you’re in a state of resistance, whatever it is you’re trying to do feels harder than it should be.
You contract on a physical and emotional level – so you're more likely to feel tension in the body and lower vibration emotions.
It causes you to doubt yourself because you can’t accomplish what it is that you’re trying to do. It affects your feelings of satisfaction with important aspects of your life, like relationships and your work.
Bottom line, it takes your energy away from things that make you feel better and more joyful.
Here are some journaling prompts to begin to identify where you're meeting resistance:
What thoughts are cluttering your mind?
What beliefs do you hold that are relevant to this block?
What are you afraid of?
Where are you holding this tension in your body?
What can you let go of at this time?
Transitioning to a "Flow State"
Every moment is an opportunity to shift directions. We need to bring awareness to the thoughts and emotions driving our behavior, and transition to a place of allowing.
