The time has come to discuss the idea of negative thoughts, resistance, inner blocks, limited beliefs and fears – in short, anything that feels like an energy block.
I truly believe that blocks and resistance MUST BE ALLOWED TO APPEAR AND PASS. Resisting these sensations makes them stick in your mind, up to the point of attaching emotion to them, attracting unpleasant events and circumstances into your life as a result.
That makes me think it’s only our reaction to resistance we need to overcome; maybe that reactions is resistance in itself.
From my experience with negative thoughts, they are unreal, irrational and practically borderline paranoid. The ones I experienced never, ever manifested in their imagined form – they merely perpetuated a specific feeling in my mind until I decided to check their accuracy in life, causing trouble over nothing as a result. My negative thoughts served as a warning that I hadn’t spent enough time getting clear on what I genuinely wanted.
When dedicated to resisting and being upset over negative thoughts, my energy attracted other unpleasant events into my life which were completely unrelated and unnecessary. The point of negative thoughts is NOT to warn you about something or someone plotting against you – they exist to give you a chance to resolve any negative feelings you hold about yourself. Once I realized this, I welcomed any form of resistance as a chance to get to know myself better as well as clear my energy in the process of becoming the person I’ve always wanted to be. The refusal to react to these thoughts emotionally took brief practice but as we all know, practice leads to mastery.
Resistance can work for you, giving you a chance to feel deep gratitude over your life transforming already (as you feel it happening). A technique to use can be switching to feeling gratitude that your life has changed and that you now have your desired reality whenever resistance appears.
Another trick I learned from The Secret – proclaim to the Universe that your positive thoughts are powerful while your negative thoughts are weak. Then, only focus on the positive thoughts. I liked this technique because it’s a one-time action and once completed, easy to remember if one ever becomes swept away by their negative thoughts.
There are various ways of dealing with blocks I had used in the past. When manifesting a relationship I didn’t feel 100% about, I would find an aspect of it I loved to focus on. This aspect may have been my being the woman who dated a younger man, a woman who proved she could manifest anything she wanted, a woman who found love with one of her closest male friends… As the Law of Attraction is all about you, the way my relationship made me feel was the key to my success. At the time I was amused by being the woman who had suddenly begun to date a younger man, breaking conventions and showing even modern day individuals in their mid-20s and early 30s (many of whom still nurtured aged values) that it was possible to enjoy life fearlessly, I became that woman.
A great technique for overcoming resistance – love change instead of fearing it.
Change is beautiful and it can take any form you desire. Without change, you cannot go from your old to your new life – at least a little change is going to occur. All these steps will lead you to the main event:
The greatest form of breaking resistance is simply opening your heart.
Love is the most powerful force in the Universe. There are various forms of expressing love but the intention behind them is the same. Personally, I use heart energy to open my heart to the newness I am manifesting. To some, mind energy is the way to manifest but I am a heart energy type.
A significant block I had to overcome in life was setting aside fantasies I had been harboring since childhood in order to make room for my current desires. While manifesting a new reality, I would occasionally experience a reflex attempting to return me to the plans burned deep into my memory; I had to remind myself that I could always return to them if need be.
My self-confidence is my core value, if you will. I know that I can have anything I want. The awareness of always having what you want brings endless benefits when it comes to using the Law of Attraction – it is what I personally rely on when it comes to manifesting.
One of the most important factors of overcoming blocks was admitting that I only needed my own support. That’s the only thing that makes me happy. We can’t rely on anyone’s support – not even our parents’ or loved ones. At any time, an action you take could make your loved one change their minds about supporting you unconditionally, leaving you frustrated and feeling alone. They might not agree with every single step you make, even though they love you; even when they disagree with you, you have to trust yourself. Your parents love you but some parents won’t admit that they want at least some part in your decision making. They might think they know what makes you happy or know better than you do. Parenthood has all the most loving intentions but when it comes to the aspect of support it should provide, it can be a confusing practice.
When needing your support alone, everyone else is suddenly eager to give it to you. Believing in yourself is magnetic to all desirable circumstances and manifestations.
Resistance is inevitable but the ways of dealing with it are optional. View it as an opportunity to get to know yourself. Know that it cannot hold any power over you unless you choose so – we add meaning and therefore, energy, to anything we choose.
That’s what life is and what creation means – everything is of the same magnitude while we merely choose what we wish to experience.
