Feeling Resistance As You Work Towards Your Dreams

Tree

My spirit guides and I were talking yesterday and the topic of resistance came up.

I was questioning why resistance shows up when we are moving in the direction of our dreams or towards something new.

Their response was insightful, so I felt like sharing.

They mentioned that the familiar in us (our structures that we have learned, thoughts, and internal rules), are usually set, and when we try to go against something that is set up internally, we are met with opposition.

They mentioned that the easiest way through that block is to allow your new sense of beingness, thoughts, and new structures to move into place.

It’s not the easiest thing to do considering some of the patterns we picked up took years to establish, but we don’t have to struggle through the process. As we open to allowing more of our new self without justifying our new position, it’s easier for the new to move into place.

So the message was clear – stop fighting the old structure and just allow yourself to be brand new. Open to it, feel your way through it, settle into your new sense of beingness. Once you are comfortable in that newness, the old will fall away.

I know this message is for someone out there, and trust me – I take notes too!

Now that I am moving in the direction of my dreams (creating my own reality, working off of intuition, and allowing rather than struggling), my old systems are going haywire. They just don’t get it. Because my old way of being (work hard, achieve, listen to the rules), is being pushed aside to allow a more authentic form of creating. Let me tell you – my old structures do not want to budge!

So I just take it one step at a time – see my connection, stop justifying why I chose this route, and move forward – it gets easier as you adjust and settle into it. Just keep feeling your way through it.

Having Difficulty Finding Support On Your Chosen Path? Trust Is The KEY.

path

I received a question from the Ask Ray – Open Interaction that I posted yesterday. 

The question had to do with expression, being supported, and feeling worthy to receive the blessings that come with following your chosen path.

Ray had alot to say.

I am not surprised though. This question or questions that are similar have been asked many times before and still weigh heavy on alot of people’s minds.

So here is Ray’s (my spirit guides) response to this question.

Anything that your heart desires you can have.

Anything.

The first thing that you need to come to terms with is trusting the process. The process entails you being the artist and the creator that you are, but also trusting that there is a bigger broader energy that is backing and supporting you expressing yourself in the way that you would like.

Now sometimes people think if they aren’t doing a certain thing – a certain way, then they’re not being backed and supported . Those thoughts are not accurate.

You are always being backed and supported for anything that brings you joy, that lights you up, and that allows you to express yourself as the being you know yourself to be.

Now sometimes, there might be something that gets you a little off track, because you believe that you have to do it all, be it all, and gain the support, but we want you to start trusting that you will rendezvous with the right people, circumstances, and events that will help you progress in the direction that you would like.

However, sometimes when you are worried and not allowing it to come as easy as you would like (because you think it should be more difficult – it shouldn’t be this easy to flow in this way), it stops the pieces from moving into your experience you see. So we want you to begin to trust the whole process – to not try to do it all by yourself – to just flow and create and move in the direction of your dream, and to trust that the infinite is backing your decision to move in this direction.

You might not see the people and circumstances right away, but the more you open your heart to the fact that there is nothing you cannot do. As a matter of fact if you chose it, that means most likely that it is a desire of your heart to express in that form or fashion.

So believe in that.

Trust it.

Anchor yourself, and know that everything that you need to support that beingness will rise up to meet you, but you have to trust that it will. If you worry, if you stifle your creativity because things are not moving as quickly as you would like, if you block yourself from opening your heart and flowing in that expression, it makes it more difficult for you to line up with the things that are around you that can help you move quicker.

There is well-being all around you waiting to reveal itself to you.

You’ve matched up with some of it now.

We want to let you know that you are ready to start receiving and allowing. We want you to acknowledge that you heard the call. We want you to acknowledge that that’s a special part of you.

Your intuition, your gut feelings, you following your heart and that flow, all of that is a special part of you. We want you to take that with you, and stop worrying so much about what the eyes don’t see and trust that beingness of you to guide you to where you need to be.

We are most appreciative of the opportunity to speak with you and say this that clearly. We don’t mean to run on so long, but we want you to really hear what we are trying to say. We appreciate you. We appreciate your question. Blessings be to you dear one.

Advice About Quitting Your Job – From Someone Who Actually Did It

There Could Be A Number Of Reasons Why You Want To Leave Your Job

It could be that you want to follow your passion and do something that you love. It could be that you tired of working so much for so little. It could be the atmosphere of the job (negative co-workers or an overbearing boss). No matter what the reason is, I want to just acknowledge that your feelings matter, your desires matter, and that there is a reason for everything.

Four Years Ago, I Quit My Job

The only reason that I left was for the freedom. I didn’t feel that I fit into the direction the company was going, and honestly going into that job made me feel like less and less of myself everyday.

I don’t want to discourage you with this post, but I do want you to know that before you decide to take that leap of faith into the unknown, it may be beneficial to consider a few things first.

I Want You To Follow Your Heart – I Do

But sometimes we wind up moving too quickly, and we make things more difficult for ourselves than they need to be. I wish someone would’ve shared their knowledge with me before I quit my job. So here are some things to consider before you leave your job.

I want you to have everything you desire, and I want you to do it through the path of least resistance. So here are some tips from someone who actually had the courage, during a recession, to leave her job.

Why I Do What I Do & The Challenges That Come With It

ProtectYourDreams

IT’S NOT EASY FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS.

Well that is true from my perspective anyway.

For those of you out there that follow your dreams with ease – kudos to you!

I had a dream last night that I had a discussion about with my significant other. As we talked about the dream imagery, some really deep stuff surfaced.

In addition to writing, I love to create. I love the idea of creating a positive environment that stimulates new thoughts and that inspires people to follow their dreams not matter what. What I couldn’t figure out however, was even though I am following my heart, what in the world is holding me back?

I was trying to figure out – why – when I am putting my heart on the line trying to create something positive – is something trying to squeeze the life out of me and cause me to give up?

BY DECODING MY DREAM FROM LAST NIGHT, I FOUND SOME OF THE ANSWERS.

You see, when you don’t have any positive role models around to look up to – following your dreams is very difficult. When your background says that you shouldn’t be anything but someone’s assistant – it’s no wonder that when you try to be something more than that – the grip of fear holds you back.

I am sensitive and caring by nature. So when I think of creating my art, making a living, and building a positive business from scratch, I don’t just have myself in mind – I have a broader view.

I have seen the diseases of poverty, helplessness, resentment, alcoholism, and hardened hearts claim the lives of many of my family members (spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically). I have seen the female energy killed in my family by unruly, disrespectful, insensitive men. I have watched people in my family let go of their dreams to follow a righteous – socially acceptable path, and for me I have a hard time swallowing some of it.

It’s difficult to sit back and watch the people who you care about the most, suffer in their lives. It’s even more difficult when you feel that you can’t do anything about it. Because of all of that, I feel that that only thing I can do is try to prosper in my own life.

It’s no wonder though that when I try to step outside of that vicious cycle of poverty, abuse, and insensitivity – that the roots of my background snake around me and question, “where do you think you are going, who do you think you are, do you feel you are someone special or something?”

THE ANSWER IS YES.

I do think that I am meant to live a better life. I do think that I am meant to shine. I do think that despite the way some of my family members have continued to deaden their dreams, that I am meant to rise above it, but it’s not easy to do.

There are some strong females in my family. They will walk the earth strapped with their children on their backs, they will walk the line of fire to defend the ones they love, they will get down on their hands and knees to do manual labor to put a roof over our heads. Yes, they are physically strong – I give them that.

But ask them what they love to do? Ask them what has hurt them the most? Ask them where they envisioned their life going? Ask them to tell you what they are proud of? Ask them what sets their heart on fire? You’ll hear nothing but silence.

Ask them to hug you or to tell you they love you. Ask them to care for their children even after they turn 18 years old. Ask them to support you emotionally, show faith in your wildest dreams, and you will get nothing in return from them.

THE TRUTH IS – THEY DOn’t Know How TO feel and show their vulnerability.

They know how to provide. They know how to tough it out. They know how to just barely make it, but they don’t know how to show they care and that it’s okay not to be able to do it all. The women in my family are so use to being the men and fighting to survive that they don’t know what femininity means to them anymore. They don’t know what it means to let their guard down.

And then here I come – Ms. Do Good, trying to teach myself a different way, trying to show myself that it is okay to love and express, trying to prove to others that there is another way, trying to realize my dreams, trying to teach my son that he can make it no matter what, and all this time I feel like I am living a lie, because even though my heart says it’s doable – my past says it can’t be done. The negative spells (being beat down mentally) that were put on me while I was younger say, “you are out of your league – try something different”.

How is anyone supposed to work through the pull of that negativity? Especially, when no one close to her was able to do it? Where do I turn to? Who do I look up to?

Maybe some of you out there are going through the same struggle.

I HAVE TO HAVE FAITH IN SOMETHING BIGGER THAN ME.

I have to have faith that my dreams are meant to be. I have to have faith that there is a part of me that is more powerful than I can imagine. I have to believe that there are angels and guides that have filled the place of those family members that were not and are not around to support me. I have to believe that the call of my heart is more important than my thoughts of doubt.

That’s the only way to make it through.

I have to believe that I have a purpose here, and despite the tug of war going on inside, it will be brought to fruition.

I appreciate anyone who stops by to read what I write. I appreciate any comment, any like, and every follow. I realize that you can be anywhere, but you have given me your time and attention, and you don’t understand how by doing that – you are helping me believe in myself. It means the world to me to have someone take the time to write a comment. It gives me hope that I should stay in this, and continue towards building my dream.

Thanks for reading!
