Let’s Celebrate ResistanceJun 30, 2023
My dear old companion.
“Why,” you ask?
Because, if it’s good for me - if I truly want it - you can bet I’ll have resistance towards it.
A deeply connected, intimate relationship that is constantly expanding? **Resistance**
Days filled with endless gratitude and self-love? **Resistance**
The next level of creativity and impact? **Resistance**
If I deeply desire it...resistance is never too far behind.
But the truth is, I’m actually experiencing all these things.
I’ve co-created a deeply intimate, fulfilling long-term relationship and love life that continues growing.
I consistently face my shadows and come through the other side with greater compassion and self-love.
I’ve taken leaps in my career.
...I don’t let the resistance stop me.
Although, when I’m feeling resistant (as I often am), I can’t fight my way to the other side.
Resistance is only fear by another name.
It’s the freeze response in our body when we feel threatened or unsafe…
And it makes you feel like you don’t want to take action because taking action feels deeply uncomfortable.
It’s a big, red flashing “danger” signal in your nervous system telling you to stop.
But here is the truth: resistance is just a defense mechanism.
It’s only trying to protect you - often from the things you desire :-)
But when we fight it - go to war with it - this not only makes you hard and in your head - because resistance is a defender - it just gets stronger the more we push against it.
But when we understand that it’s actually just a wounded part of ourself trying to protect us…
We can develop self-compassion towards it…
Which softens it...
Most people fight fire with fire...which only builds MORE resistance.
And roll your eyes if you must, but I know the greatest force for healing and wholeness is compassion and love.
So if you feel resistant to connecting more deeply to yourself... it’s normal.
I get it.
But underneath all that resistance is so much rich goodness... so much radiance and power... don’t let the resistance fool you... your nature is big and beautiful and the path to reclaiming it is through compassion and forgiveness.
