Resistance and the Law of Attraction
I often see programs online, selling the secret to the missing ingredient to the Law of Attraction and if you know this one secret, everything will be yours. I don’t know what secret they are selling but in my experience, the top factor is the ability to accept. Acceptance of your current situation is key to allowing the energy needed for the Law of Attraction to flow as you would like it to. Resistance will hinder your progress.
We often feel the need to control a situation. We are so used to having things happen and work in a certain way so sometimes find it extremely difficult to let go and go with the flow.
When things don’t go the way we would like, we use so much energy to try to get things back on course. We usually perceive these as negative situations but more often than not, it is the universe clearing a path for what we want.
Let’s explore this with regard to abundance. Most people go to work each day trading time for money where they receive a fixed pay check each month. More often than not, this pay check only covers the bare necessities needed to live. Unless you are in an extremely well paid profession, there usually isn’t enough money left over after paying bills for exotic vacations or luxury cars or anything else you may desire. You are in control of this scenario.
However, when you are using the Law of Attraction to create the abundance in life, you have to be open to what the universe will orchestrate as circumstances line up to bring you the abundance you want. In this scenario, you relinquish control of the situations that manifest. The only control you need to have is that of your thoughts and your vibration. You have to have faith that everything will work out for you. You cannot be resistant and fight against the tide and still expect the Law of Attraction to work for you.
What is Resistance?
According to the Cambridge dictionary resistance is the act of fighting against something that is attacking you, or refusing to accept something, or a force that acts to stop the progress of something or make it slower.
And according to the Oxford dictionary, resistance is the refusal to accept or comply with something,
When abundance is created with the Law of Attraction, it is still produced in the normal way. You will not suddenly find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Something will happen that will cause a positive financial input into your life.
Sometimes you may win something wonderful like a holiday or car or even the lottery, but the universe has unlimited ways of bringing you the money you want, and often these could be viewed initially as negative.
For example, your house could be damaged in a storm and you get a hefty insurance pay out that allows you to buy all the things you want for your home. Your car could be stolen or written off and as a result you get a new car or you could personally have some type of accident and receive compensation.
All these sound very negative and rather dramatic, but more often than not they are just temporary setbacks which cause short term pain or inconvenience. When you focus upon these type of events with a negative heart, with frustration and resistance, you then block the good outcome that is coming your way.
So when you experience what you perceive as negative setbacks or circumstances, accept them for what they are and be open to the possible positive outcomes that could be yours.
Don’t let doubt and resistance cast a shadow. The only outcome from doubt and resistance is feeling bad and projecting a negative vibration. So keep your spirits up, believe all will be well and look forward to your path unfolding as you would like it to do so.
