Resistance is experienced as fear; the degree of fear equates to the strength of Resistance. Therefore the more fear we feel about a specific enterprise, the more certain we can be that that enterprise is important to us and to the growth of our soul. That’s why we feel so much Resistance. If it meant nothing to us, there’d be no Resistance. Steven Pressfield
Resistance is usually based on fear, the need for control, or the belief that our expectations are not going to be met. We can’t believe that we are capable of doing or having what our inner knowing is telling us, so we procrastinate or simply avoid doing what needs to be done. These are all forms of resistance.
The habit of resistance closes you down and shuts off the flow, which means you get more of what you don’t want and less of what you do. Resistance results in less creativity and abundance in your life. But by letting go of your fear and moving through the resistance, you begin to get a different result. Become a martial arts master in your own life and flow with what is, while trusting your inner wisdom to move you in the right direction.
Spiritual Contemplation: What are you in resistance to that which you know is exactly the thing you need to be doing?
Affirmation: I am wiling to allow life to flow and to move through my resistance.
