Resistance Magnifies

800px-Waves_in_pacifica_1Have you ever noticed that whatever you resist persists? Even though your intention is to resist it so it goes away and does not have power over you, as long as you continue to give energy to a thing or a thought, it simply continues to grow.  It doesn’t matter if your thought is for it to go away or to come closer to you, if you are thinking it, you are keeping it in your vibration. It’s just like the saying…

Don’t think of a Pink Elephant

When someone tells you this, the image of a pink elephant is automatically in your mind. The same thing goes for you telling yourself “Don’t think about that negative thing I don’t want”. No matter what your thought is around that thing, the energy you give to it by virtue of your thoughts places it into your existence. There is no other possible outcome.

So How Do You Remove Something From Your Awareness and Space?

Focus on something else. Usually focusing on a thing that is exactly the opposite is the easiest and most powerful course of action.  For example, if you want your headache to go away you can focus on peace of mind, a beautiful flower, a sunset or your child at play. Your new focus will remove you from the energy you wish to avoid and will allow you to step into a more desirable energy and outcome.

“Allowing” is Always the Answer

As you allow yourself to think good thoughts and focus on best possible outcomes and to move away from the negative and undesirable aspects of what is around you, you will come to find that there is a world of goodness and light that is ever available to you. You must simply allow it in.

    As usual you are “spot on” with your wisdom.

    I frequently mention the sentence that the late, great Henry Ford said:
    “Think you can….Think you can’t…..Either way you are right!”

    This is a journey for all of us women as we grown our businesses and our belief systems, That is the power of our mind and our focus!

    Always love reading what you write!
