Releasing Resistance

Is your desire  eluding you? Something you want that you haven’t been able to manifest yet?
Whatever it is – a healthier body, better job, new house, loving relationship, fatter wallet, whatever – if you don’t have what you want, it’s likely you’re experiencing resistance. That is, you’re not allowing it.
It might not make sense that we would flow resistance about what we want.  But it’s not so much that we’re resisting what we want, rather that we’re resisting not having it.
Meaning, if you’re not at peace with where you are now, you are flowing resistance.  And that trips up the party.
Releasing that resistance is critical to get what you want.
One way you can begin remedying that is to dial in on appreciation.  When you’re feeling thankful, you’re not in resistance!  It’s a good habit to create.
Reminding yourself that you’ll be okay with or without your desire is also a way to release the attachment to it, and that minimizes resistance as well.
Here’s one more quick and easy way to begin loosening that resistance. Ask yourself this question: “What if … ?”   and fill in the blank with whatever it is you want. “What if I do get that offer?” “What if he does call?” “What if I do get the loan?”
As your mind considers this question, you’re experiencing temporary relief of resistance. Cool, huh?
Use it to give yourself immediate relief when things have you down. Just consider the “what if?” thought of having, being or doing what you want. It’ll loosen things up and allow the next step to unfold.
