How To Embrace Your Resistance



Feeling stuck?

Like you are wading through mud?

Have you got that “I wanna do it.. but I just can’t..” feeling?

Why does it feel this hard?


Have you ever felt like this? and if you say no, I don’t believe you 😉

Good old resistance, it’s a part of life we can not escape.

The escape part however is where I believe we have it all wrong. I’m  going to suggest we embrace the emotions that resistance brings up.

In my experience with resistance, it only gets worse if you fight it, try to escape it, or try to resist the resistance.  I’ve been dealing with my own resistance recently. With redesigning/ branding and writing content for my new website. It takes lots of creative flow, and I was on a roll for at least 2 weeks. Nothing could hold me back, I was on fire!

Then Bam! I Hit the wall. The resistance wall.

The mental dialogue that followed went something like this:


“Why has this happened?  

What am I doing wrong?

Should I drink more green juice?  

Take more fish oil?  Do a cleanse?  Get out the yoga mat?  

(actually the yoga mat is a good idea, and the cleanse too.)”


Thankfully my intuitive mind stepped in and said “hey hold up, for just one second Sarah, be gentle with yourself.”

I think you should :

  • Meditate.
  • Sit quiet. (another word for meditation)
  • Breathe
  • Listen

So I did, and I heard the message loud and clear, and I want to share it with you.


 “Relax.  Resistance is a blessing. Resistance is a message from our soul.”

 The soul message is:

Are your ready for whats to come? It’s going to be good!

It will bring with it some big changes. Are you ready for those?

Do you really want this?



My understanding is that the resistance is helping us with a part of ourselves that is scared and the resistance is checking in with us to see if we are ready. Even if it’s something we think we really want!

Change can be scary. Even good change. Even “dream come true” change can scare us.

The soul is doing a grand old job, of getting you to check in with yourself, to decide if you are truly ready and if you truly want it.


So I replied:  Holy YES I am ready!   Soul resistance answered:  Well great, let’s go then!

Guess what happened.  The resistance just fell away.


“I allowed the resistance in. I spoke to it. It listened. We worked together.”


Resistance has left the building for now, and I’m sure it will be back. At least I now know how to work together with resistance  and face head on the message it brings.
