What would you wager against your own resistance?

How honest are you being with yourself in regards to some of your new year intentions or even this week’s intentions? What action steps can you do to wager, love, own, feel, honor against your own resistance? How do you deal with resistance?

Let’s practice a scenario: You experience an emotion or a block during your day that causes you to spin out of control. You say BLANK it and just shove down what you are feeling and choose a distraction of your choice such as food, tv, shopping, games on your phone, you name it. That resistant doesn’t come from a fear of failing, it comes from a fear of being successful and attaining your true desires.

Discomfort X Resistance = Suffering

How can we fully feel this resistance before we grab the caramel ice cream or numb out on movies that leave you feeling more frustrated than inspired? I challenge you to see where you in your body you feel that resistance. Take a moment to feel it and acknowledge it, this alone helps release resistance. When we live more in our feeling (Right) brain versus the Logical (Left) brain, it will support the high stress world we live in and by doing this you are supporting yourself which in turn supports the friends and family you love.

Also, try finding a way for you to praise (I don’t love the synonyms for accountable) yourself. Whether it is telling a friend your goal and how you are going to celebrate with them once you achieve it or giving away $ if you don’t do what you truly want to. What moves you to relish in your success? A new outfit, a trip, a favorite concert, an over due phone call to a long lost friend?

Some of the things that I have been the most resistant (resistance feels like my tummy twisting in my body) to have became some of the best gifts of my life. Some personal examples are; a woman’s laugh in line that totally annoyed me, and now she is a dear friend and I was in her wedding; resisting a meditation practice for over 3 years before it became a habit in my life; total aggravation over an email (or quite a few) that showed up in my inbox which felt like too much work and now have helped me grow both personally and professionally.  Being our own cheerleader is what will drive away negativity and allow us to have more personal freedom.

When you feel the resistance and move toward your desire, you inspire others to do the same.
