A very important step we need to take to start our journey towards wellness ….Letting Go of Resistance
We know thoughts indeed create things and positive thinking is indeed necessary for manifestation of desires – although by themselves they are not enough.
Resistance is one and the only reason most people are getting what they don’t want and not getting what they want in their lives.
Resistance is caused by the resistant thoughts, such as “I am not good enough …”, “I won’t have enough money…”, “Someone else always gets what I deserve …”, “It’s unfair …” etc…
Resistance thoughts are essentially our inner energy blocks – they prevent energy flow.
There are two major ways to overcome resistance:
1. Passive Approach: Stop and eliminate resistant thoughts: Meditation practices.
Our universe is very cooperative and when you stop or at least make your resistance thoughts diminish – this will automatically cause energy flow to increase and your well-being level will rise.
2. Active Approach: Activate positive, allowing thoughts: The DreamCatcher’s Altitude Practice.
Active approach to eliminate resistance involves proactive, conscious changes in your attitude (thoughts) toward everything around you.
“Altitude” stands for Appreciation + Love Attitude.
Both passive and active approach works equally well and personal preference depends more on your personality.
The general approach toward successful meditation practice is to comfortably relax and consciously follow some sort of repetitive mundane pattern, usually breathing and related body sensations in a passive observer manner. Repetition of mantras or quiet soothing music makes for easier meditation. Regular meditation practice serves as a good supplementary tool to freshen your inner energy.
In some of the best guides and Law of Attraction books for attracting wellness to our lives, we find two important teachings which can be easily followed during the day to eliminate inner resistance to well-being:
– One way is to have pure positive thoughts (energy of appreciation and love) to no-thoughts (meditation)—according to “The Teachings of Abraham” (summary of works by Esther and Jerry Hicks)
“The secret to life is this: look for something to appreciate and practice it until it becomes easy and you will live happily ever after…”
These teachings explain there is vibrational difference between Gratitude and Appreciation. While Appreciation and Love are identical vibrations, Gratitude and Appreciation are not. Gratitude more often present within us when we got or achieved something as a result of a quest or struggle or “active striving toward”. Hence Gratitude might contain “traces” of that previous resistance and struggle, while appreciation and real unconditional love does not. Gratitude has a character of sticking toward specific subjects, objects or conditions, while appreciation has a wonderful tendency to spill all over everything.
Gratitude might have a flavor of “because…” [weather is good, car is running, my body feels well], while Appreciation can be more “uncaused” and keep being present without logical reason. Yet Gratitude is a wonderful “bridging” vibration toward yet higher Appreciation and Love vibrations and it is a good sign that the ultimate vibration of appreciation and love are well within reach. Once you’re into appreciation mode – the is no resistance within you and all your desires and dreams are on the finish line toward you.
– “The Science of Getting Rich” (Book by Wallace D Wattles) says
“The whole process of mental adjustment and atonement can be summed up in one word, gratitude… if your gratitude is strong and constant, the reaction in Formless Substance will be strong and continuous; the movement of the things you want will be always toward you”.
Letting go of resistance practice is essentially daily alertness, openness and willingness to find more and more things to appreciate and be grateful for. It doesn’t matter how busy you are – every day presents countless “idle” moments that are perfect to practice and polish your appreciation skills.
