This is day 3 of the 7 Day Allowing Challenge.
I mentioned the other day that our only work is really to stop resisting.
But of course, that’s easier said than done. We’ve been resisting for so long that it is a terrifying proposition to stop resisting. We use our resistance as a way of protecting ourselves from the perceived hostility of the world.
I’m not a fan of distraction as a long-term strategy. It might help you to feel better in the short-term, but it really doesn’t fix anything in the long-term. Eventually, you’ll have to face your resistance.
I noticed for myself that I would often put off the work. It’s uncomfortable, and emotions would often rise to the surface that I’d rather not face.
But the thing is, I realized that those resistant emotions are in the background, actively poisoning my manifestations. No matter what’s on the outside, they have to be transformed to reflect whatever’s on the inside. That’s the law of attraction.
So make a commitment to yourself that you will face whatever resistance is present. It is only ever a thought, after all, so has no power to hurt you, no matter how real it feels. Its apparent reality is only an illusion.
Of course that doesn’t mean you should go looking for resistance. Your mind is creative, so will create whatever you have in mind. Simply face whatever is here in the moment, and allow it all to pass through. Be an open hand to the Universe.
Trust that there is no hostility that you must guard against. It is all in your mind. The Universe is inherently safe and supportive. It is here for your freedom, growth, and joy.
I like seeing this as an experiment on my own consciousness. If I allow it all, what will happen? How will my external reality shift to reflect my new inner state? It’s a game of sorts. I’d suggest approaching it in much the same way for yourself, to not take it so seriously.
I’d love to hear how it’s going for you, so please feel free to comment!
I just sent off my upcoming newsletter to my editor yesterday, after writing pretty intensely for two days or so. I discuss this very topic in that newsletter, and I go so much deeper than I can possibly do here. I’m super excited for the members of the Circle of Darkness to get this issue of the newsletter, because I really think I have not said it in such a way before.
I’d love if you’d sign up as well, as I certainly want to spread this to as many people as possible to help you with your own growth. Just click below to sign up now:
