Your Agenda Slowing Things Up?
In today’s Get What You Want ezine I wrote about how I’ve made the mistake of practicing self-love for the sake of losing weight. (You can sign up on the right if you’re not already receiving your copy.)
I pointed out that’s not really love.
Love is unconditional, so when I engage it in order to make something happen or create some sort of change, that’s not love I’m really flowing.
(That’d be like me only loving my sweetie as long as he is nice to me. Uhh … that’s not love.)
In fact, I shared that engaging anything (EFT, The Work, Intentional Resting) with the agenda of fixing something isn’t likely to be effective.
When we do something simply because it feels better, we’re on the right track.
When we engage something in order to change our current circumstances, that’s got resistance in it.
Resistance to what is.
And we know how this stuff works. (What we resist, persists.)
Roma Zanders recently led a call for Good Vibe U based on the principle that “working on yourself doesn’t work.” (From the book titled such.)
The gist of her message was that without the acceptance of what is, we are flowing resistance. Which we know holds up delivery of the fab things lined up in our vortex.
Because I believe this is an easy distinction to miss, I wanted to open it up for discussion here. Do you regularly get results even when you’re working with an agenda? Or have you found that “doing this” in order to “get that” slows things up?
