Every time we decide to make a big change in our lives or start something brand new, our ego self shows us resistance in the forms of procrastination, fear of starting, making up excuses, and so on. Why does this always happen? We then have the choice to either listen to that little voice inside our heads (I know you know what I’m talking about) or saying, Nope! That voice is not real and I’m not going to listen. Not today!
Moments like these show up so frequently out of fear because realistically, we have to give up so much in order to begin a new way of being or thinking. Mentally, we must set up boundaries within ourselves and with our friends, family, and coworkers. In order to become a positive thinker, we have to give up negative thought patterns and self deprecating behaviors. It is not easy.
Big changes and even smaller changes and shifts happen because we choose them, like starting a Keto-diet, or they are out of our control, like needing to move across country for work or losing our job. Change occurs all the time and it’s so important to talk about because as we enter the Fall season, many changes take place in our lives. Kids go away to school or begin Kindergarten, the energy of life shifts from growth into harvest and storing up reserves for the winter.
We all have moments of resistance ( I think we all do) when we are unconsciously moving through life and allowing things to happen to us. But, when I am conscious about what is happening in my environment I question, why is this happening for me? I understand now that my body requires more rest than I allow. I force myself to slow down. Consciously tuning in to how your body feels is a great way of flowing with the currents of resistance instead of against those currents because this energy is important to flow in congruence. There’s valuable information in why we are blocking or creating friction instead of easing into the unsteadiness or vulnerability of our circumstances.
So for the next few months I will keep pushing and I hope you will too.
Thank you for reading and I’ll talk to you soon.
