Reluctance & Resistance

July 18, 2019

Resistance and reluctance can feel like being caught in a wave, but we can learn to rise up out of it and surf it like a pro!

For what must have been about three years, I prayed every day to release the resistance and reluctance I felt. It bothered me so much that I was so often feeling my intuition guiding me in one direction, but I didn’t have the courage to choose it.

The resistance I felt showed up in so many ways. It was a constant battle with self-sabotage that felt like climbing up hill, and then rolling back down, and then starting up again, and rolling back down again.

It was exhausting.
And I was determined not to let the resistance and reluctance win out.
That’s why I kept praying.
I had faith that my prayers would carry me through, and they did.

Now I can see that I learned so much and healed so much through my experience of resistance and reluctance.

Deep down, I felt unworthy of my calling. Now I know that doesn’t even make sense.

I used to think that being a minister meant that I would somehow always make the highest and best choices. Now I understand that I’m still learning, still remembering, and so sometimes I will stumble and fall, and that’s how I have learned to cultivate a great humility and a greater compassion. Both are necessary to my success as a minister.

When there’s reluctance to making the loving choices there’s a healing opportunity, and we can choose the healing instead of collapsing into reluctance.

The resistance is often about not wishing to give up playing small because it seems so safe. The ego thought is, “At least if I play, small I’m not going to impact many others with my unworthiness”

When I learned to actively live in a loving way, releasing the judgments and really walking the talk, the resistance and reluctance fell away. It dissolved. Miracle! We have a miracle in our heart/mind and then our life demonstrates it. YES!

If this is an issue for you, last year I did a radio show on the topic of Resistance & Reluctance that might be helpful. It’s time for us to shine our light and live the Love! Let’s rise & shine, baby!
