“In the absence of resistant thought, your Vibration returns to its natural state of power and clarity and love. In the absence of resistant thought, your true nature of resilience and replenishment and vitality returns. In the absence of resistant thought, your true nature of eagerness and joy and fun returns.” Abraham-Hicks
Worry. Concern. Struggle. Effort. Controlling. These are the forms resistance has taken in my life. Believing that it is up to me to make things happen. “Facing” a “BIG PROJECT” and feeling such a heavy weight on my shoulders. Hesitating before beginning, delaying, fretting over how I will ever make it all come together.
How different all that efforting and struggle is when contrasted with allowing, releasing, relaxing, letting go of all that resistance. In my mind, it’s almost like the difference between being a child or an exuberant, eager young adult, and an older, more sophisticated, more complicated, more cautious and analytical adult. To that older more concerned and controlling adult within me, those ways of approaching my goals, dreams and visions as the playful, trusting, relaxed and excited “young” person that lives somewhere within me, seems sometimes like a BIG PROJECT itself!!
After all, I’ve spent the better part of this lifetime learning from the world around me and from all the hard, laboring efforts I’ve made to get things done in my life, that getting results, manifesting goals, takes great diligence, perseverance, control of my schedule, adherence to a strict work ethic, grit, determination, willingness to defer gratification, and usually a long uphill battle of “paying my dues”, before I should expect or even be worthy of receiving just compensation.
“If it’s hard, if it’s a struggle, then stop doing it!! Don’t try to make things happen when it’s not happening easily! Back off!! Don’t try to force anything. If what you’re feeling and doing isn’t pleasing you, then defuse it, release it. Trying too hard is trying to make something happen from a vibration that isn’t cooperating.” Abraham-Hicks
Of course, I find it reassuring that the very nature of my overall BIG PROJECT is to learn, apply what I learn, and most of all, enjoy this process of once again allowing myself to align with the well-being of my Source... to gradually release resistance... and to increasingly live inside this place within me, of allowing and ease.
