Greetings Creator, I have some information I’d love to share with you. Lately I have been pondering the purpose of Resistance and why it’s necessary to our Creative Process? What lead me to this Internal Investigation was that I was noticing Resistance, I mean Really noticing it, when it revealed itself in the form of negative emotion. And, truth be told, I had a good deal of it pop up during the course of the day. What? Me? The Happy, Aligned, Leading-Edge Vixen that I am? That’s right!
So, I got on it immediately. I don’t like speed bumps, especially when I’m cruising along at Warp Speed, as they have a tendency to knock me off into a completely different galaxy. I needed to have some clarity around the subject.
What’s a gal to do when she has a question for Abe and there’s isn’t a hot seat and a mike available? Well simple – head over to YouTube and type in what I want to know, in this case: Abraham-Hicks Resistance, et voila, the video I am posting here in the comments section, revealed itself to me. Have a listen, you’re going to dig it.
Allow me to summarize and put my spin on it. First, doing away with Resistance is Futile (Yes, The Borg knew what they were preaching) as it is one of the main ingredients in The Creative Process. IOW – It’s the “what we don’t want” that is sitting right next to the “what we do want,” that is present in all our contrasting moments. And Abe tells us that if Resistance ceased to be, so would expansion and that could never happen.
Hmmm, already I am feeling relief around this topic. It doesn’t feel as heavy or unwieldy; as it’s been brought down into my sphere of influence where I can manage my relationship to it. It doesn’t Happen To Me, its a marker, a litmus test, a directional indicator. By George, I think we’re getting somewhere.
Since we can’t do away with it, we must learn how to manage it. Here’s the plu-perfect formula for us Creators when it comes to managing our resistance: Have Contrast, see two sides of the coin, pick the side that feels good, move on. Next…
Where you and I get hung up is in the picking the positive and leaving behind the negative. Why? Because we are still nursing habits of thought that who knows or cares the provenance of, as we sit in the resistant energy depriving ourselves of good feelings and other juicy manifestations that are ours by birthright! Whereas Source, faced with the Contrasting Moment, has already gone down the road and is playing around in the solution, while we sit depriving ourselves of that solution, because we can’t/won’t move on.
Isn’t now the perfect time to become The Vibrational Equivalent of The Outcome That We Desire, rather than it’s counter-intuitive equivalent? If your answer is yes, then the first step in becoming a Master of Discernment is to understand your Emotional Guidance System. YOU MUST KNOW WHAT EMOTIONS YOUR EMITTING IN ORDER TO START UP-LEVELING YOUR THOUGHTS TO MATCH THE THOUGHTS OF SOURCE.
When I began this odyssey of self-discovery with Abe, I thought I had 2 emotions. I was a New York City kid and the way we rolled was we either loved the idea, or the person, or hated it, period. Who knew that there were a host of other emotions laying in between those two? LOL.
And another huge catalyst to my self-inquiry was that Abraham had chided some hot seaters about their supposed time “In The Vortex” versus their “Out of The Vortex” time. Seems that we like to fool ourselves that we are IN, when in actuality, we’re not. That hit me like a ton of bricks! If I am bullshitting myself, I want to know that too.
So in order to better understand this Amazing Guidance System that is my path to clarity and all I desire, I printed out Abe’s Emotional Guidance Scale from their book, “Ask and It is Given,” and put them everywhere; at my kitchen sink, bathroom mirror, wallet, dashboard of my car, you name it. And then, when I became aware of wanting to identify my feelings, I would sit with the feeling and then look at the paper and see which one resonated with me.
This practice served me well, as now I don’t need the paper, it is clear when I am in the vicinity of hope or not. When I am flowing clarity or blame. When I am bipping down the road of Optimism or lugging around boulders of discontent.
And now, armed with this data, I can be my own Teacher. I can feel when something is off and who do I call upon to change how I feel? ME that’s who. As I am the only one who throws resistance in my path. No one else.
The knowledge that I have gleaned today is that Resistance is not the enemy, to the contrary, she’s my friend, my ally, my go to gal when I want to know better what it is I desire. When she lands on my doorstep, I know it. She walks like a storm trooper and takes no quarter! The negative vibrations she throws about cannot be ignored, and so this allows me to pivot toward the sun, toward good feelings and all that I desire.
My hope is that we all become Masters Of Our Lives! Someone asked me the other day how I explain The Teachings of Abraham and I said, “Simple… Identifying and Understanding The Laws of The Universe and Using Them To Our Advantage!” And for today’s lesson on Resistance – It’s understanding our Emotional Guidance System and using it to our advantage.
Game… Set… Match…~*
