Are You Resisting Your Life?

We’ve all heard the saying, “What we resist persists.”  In my experience, this is so very true.

Another great one that I recently read: “Someone can only drive you crazy if you give them the keys.”

Right now in your life, what do you wish were different?  What do you complain about?  Who really bothers you?  What things and people should be different from what they are? Your answers to these questions are all things you’re resisting.  You may say that your negative feelings or uneasy emotions are many things but it boils down to resisting things and people as they are.

So are you resisting your life? Here are few tell tale signs :

  • You think an aspect of your life is “wrong”. Instead practice no longer labelling anything or anyone as right or wrong.
  • You look for barriers to your progress. Instead anticipate miracles will happen and be ready for the Universe to surprise you.
  • You accept “your lot”, settling for less. Instead say, “My nature is to expand, possibilities are endless.”
  • You force things to happen. Instead trust that what you want will flow if you create good feeling each day and allow divine order & timing to play out.
  • You repeat negative patterns. Instead seek to see what lesson life is teaching you, them embrace a positive change.
  • You often say “should” about yourself, others or life. Instead practice acceptance of what is.
  • You live on auto pilot, missing “the signs” life is giving you. Instead practice awareness & be curious about how life is guiding you.
  • You’re rigidly attached to your opinions. Instead open yourself up to other views. As you upgrade your mind, you upgrade your life.
  • You avoid change due to fear of the unknown. Instead pick 1 change you know you need & step forward with 1 small action.
  • You feel like life is against you. Instead say, “I live in a friendly Universe. I’m supported.”

    Very insightful. You make excellent points in your post. We need to let go and steer away from the negative.

      Thank you Chief. Remind yourself that no matter how much you try to resist, the “problem” still exists. It can be helpful to acknowledge that the situation has a cause and that this has happened for a reason. You might not always know what the reason is, but you can still accept it. The word surrender can have negative connotations, but surrender is the bravest thing that anyone can do. It’s a willingness to accept what you cannot change, not a defeat in any way. True surrender takes place when negative thought patterns and beliefs are stripped away and the true self emerges.

  2. I think that this is a really well written post and something that I know that I have suffered from and still do to a certain extent but I do believe that in many ways a point is reached whereby you are driven to question life and your part in either yours or the lives of others.
    I think that sometimes we have to accept that we can do anything that we want to in life and accept that change is a big and beautiful thing and is actually very natural.
    Wishing you a safe and happy journey through life especially in these most difficult of times 🙏🤗

      Thank you Paul. I hope you are staying safe too.

      Practicing acceptance allows us to free ourselves from the clench of resistance that creates even more suffering. Because when we are in any pain or suffering, we inadvertently pass it on to others and continue the cycle of fear and pain.Acceptance as a practice means making a conscious choice to let go of any attachment to outcomes and to accept pain and struggles with grace and compassion (for yourself).

      You are most welcome. I am glad you liked it. There are many times in life where the outcome of a situation isn’t our intention or something that we would want. Events such as becoming ill, losing a job, or ending a relationship can shake our foundation to its core. Because we cannot control these distressing events, we tend to magnify the negative aspects and emotions of the situation, while stewing in the unjustness of it all.

      I am glad you liked them. That is until we become aware of our thoughts and the beliefs that no longer serve us. The first step is to simply be aware. This is because if resistance continues to be a theme of our lives, suffering inevitably will crash over us like a wave, with plenty of fear and doubt to saturate our soul.
