Meet Your New Friend, R e s i s t a n c e
In light of my getting unstuck blog last week, here’s one more eye-opener, a new friend perhaps, that I would like to introduce you to… R e s i s t a n c e
When resistance shows up, it just may be that long lost friend you’ve been waiting for…
An ended relationship / divorce and a career change. Two major life changing experiences from my journey over the past years… When I look back at both, what POPS out in neon flashing purple lights is how much resistance I experienced throughout both when it came to taking much needed steps to break away and how long I carried the resistance of ‘knowing and not doing what needed to get done’…
Wanting to feel more fulfilled, alive and aligned in what held true for me were serious, and a bit scary changes I needed, along with breaking away from my ‘this is what I chose mentality’… yet for a few extra (& very unnecessary) years the Train Kept A-Rollin, and I stayed on board with no major shifts in sight. It wasn’t until I realized that…
The whispers coming to me all along were coming from a friend. A friend who had my back. A friend who just wanted to nudge me forward and follow my truth… A friend who kept whispering to no longer settle for things not worthy nor serving my best interest. A friend I now call, Resistance.
When I finally took the reins back and made the choice to live from an empowered place (which has always been my nature, yet was quite lost during those years) rather than fear of the unknown, I felt alive again re-aligning my world back to what my head, heart and gut were telling me all along… NOTE to the Ladies: Our gut is one of the most powerful tools we have within us that we simply musn’t ignore. Nurture any messages from the ‘g’ with love…
Walking through resistance is all part of the journey to empowered living. You will experience much of it…. And when it whispers to you, embrace it as your friend, listen closely, pay attention and really notice what it is telling you. It is there to steer you on the path towards your truth, your light, and your love.
The areas where resistance comes up the most in your life, are the areas that you need to experience the most… If you fail so what, get up and try again… but after walking through, you may have a scrape or two to show for it, but you will get up with a whole new empowered, feeling and sense of confidence behind you, that you haven’t felt in a while or perhaps never before.
PS – What resistance whispers are you hearing these days? Are they the same whispers that you’ve heard before? Would love to know and help you navigate through… Leave your comments below….
Love & Light,
