that which resists...


Over the course of the last couple of weeks there has been a principal that has repeated itself in my life and the lives of the students that I have been teaching and I wanted to share it with you guys...


I am sure most of us have heard the phrase before but I wanted to break it down a bit because I have seen this very concept work time and time again in the field and its something that I believe is a part of a deeper understanding about life.

When you resist against something it gives it energy and make the force that you are resisting that much stronger.

By resisting...
you are reflecting back to you...
the very thing that you do not want...

Let’s take the example of a break up in a relationship. If the woman breaks up with you and you do everything you can to win her back instead of allowing her the space that she wants then you are resisting the break up and thus giving it power. Your focus is not on bettering yourself in this process but resisting the break up. This will cause the break up to persist and to actually become more painful. When you stop resisting and allow yourself the freedom to walk away and give her the gift of allowing her to reassess the situation then you stop giving it power.

The more you resist the things in life by saying
“ no I don’t want that”
you are magnifying the very things in which you don’t want. Spend your time and energy thinking and feeling what you want rather then what you don’t want and watch as it manifests into your life.

This is the principal that is based in the martial art Aikido. You redirect your opponent’s energy and you’re their force against them. You do not resist their attack but redirect it. This principal is universal and holds true for all problems in life.

Though we understand the principal, we now have to put it into action. One way to redirect the resistance is to..

be aware of your feelings...

Since your thoughts dictate your feelings, start by thinking positive thoughts. Think of things in the present that you love about yourself or other people. Think of fun times that you have had throughout your life and really get the feeling associated with those times. Stop resisting what you want to change and understand that change is inevitable but growth is optional.

I am going to be talking a lot more about how to develop a new lifestyle mindset and offering some really cool things to the readers.. SO STAY TUNED

As always if you have questions..
