You try to hold water in your hands.
You kneel down to scoop the water from the beautiful flowing river’s bank. You hold both hands so tightly together with such resistance and you scoop that water into your hands.
Do you manage to keep that water in your hands? Does that water start to seep through even the tiniest of cracks and back to its flowing family?
Yes. Yes it does.
The only way to really enjoy water is to get in it. Immerse yourself in it and flow with it.
Water just flows. It doesn’t try to flow – it just flows. Trees don’t try to sway in the wind, they just naturally sway. There is no resistance. They are just doing what they naturally do.
Life is like water. It is supposed to flow.
But instead human beings have slowly placed a shit load of resistance onto it and then wonder why they are tired and not getting anywhere.
This topic basically co-exists with manifestation and calling into our reality the things that we desire. The laws of attraction.
It all begins with the things that we desire and the picture that we, as humans, create in our mind of how we want our life to look. This is the vision.
To then make that vision a reality there are a few things that you are going to have to do. The first is getting into alignment. This means (feel good) you have to get to that place in life where you feel like everything is flowing and you’re on the right path. Once you are here, you will start vibrating at a higher frequency. This is the energy that you want to be putting out into the universe. It’s a form of co-creation between yourself and a higher power in order to bring more of what you are wanting into your reality.
This, my friends, is the only time that you will receive. When you are in alignment anything is possible! It’s unbelievable what can happen! This is truly when the spontaneous miracles happen. I wouldn’t even call them spontaneous, although they will seem like that to you. Really, they have been on their way to you since you asked for them and because you did the work and raised your vibrations, you were able to receive.
Now, just as it is possible to manifest your desires, it is also possible to put a complete stop to them altogether. You will start to wonder, “What the fuck happened and where are my treats?” LOL
This, my friends, is usually when human beings start getting impatient and resistance kicks in. Resistance sucks.
Resistance is more or less – trying too hard. I like to call it “efforting” Placing far too much effort into something will make it run for the hills.
You will know when this is happening because you can feel that resistance through every inch of your body. It feels tight, heavy, smothered and rushed. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the perfect explanation for the way resistance makes me feel. LIKE I CAN’T BREATHE.
Think about a scenario (and I know you all have one) when you desired something, truly desired it. You did everything in your power to make it yours! It could be a number of things: a job, a house, a relationship. This happened to me when trying to buy another investment property, except this time I really wanted to live in this one. I had fallen in love with this beautiful home. I held that house in the forefront of my mind.
But that wasn’t the problem – the problem was that I tried far too hard to make it mine. I went against the current to try and get it, and it fell through. I had smothered that idea to death. It felt gross. I then decided to let it go. I immediately felt my shoulders drop. That felt good.
Simple, isn’t it? Let go and you will feel good – why do we make things make things so difficult.
I chose the path of least resistance and it was all for the right reasons. I didn’t get that house for a reason and now looking back, I couldn’t be happier that it fell through! I want to focus on my business and all the new ventures I have going on in the background of ELSIE CUBE. Buying that house would have placed a huge amount of pressure on my creativity. It just simply wasn’t right for me at the time. Someday maybe, but not now.
If you want to bring your desires into your reality, the path of least resistance is the only path to choose. It’s the right path and you will feel that.
I want you to imagine a scenario, and I’m positive this has happened to most of us here. You have feelings for someone, you like them a lot but you end up trying too hard. You start swimming against the current, you start focusing far too much time and energy onto that one person. The end result in these situation is always the same. It just never works out, does it? It just feels hectic, tight and gross. It starts to feel like you are working overtime, doesn’t it? Like the walls are slowly closing in on you! This is the same if someone is trying too hard to win your attention, The walls close in and all you want to do is bolt, as fast as you can so that you can get some air into those lungs again. Like everything in this lifetime, If you try too hard and swim against the current just to pursue something, it will run.
The vibrations that you end up putting out into the universe to manifest your desires are actually manifesting the absence of that very thing you desire. For example, if you start a new business and decide you are going to do 10,000 other things at once, you start to use too much resistance in absolutely every little thing that you do, and then it feels forced.
I used to do it all the time when I started writing the blog. I would totally freak out that I hadn’t written anything! I would forcefully sit down and end up writing something that I didn’t even like. It would just feel scattered. The words wouldn’t flow. The only time I write now is when I feel it come rushing through me! And by that stage I don’t actually have a choice! That pen is planted firmly on the page, indenting the paper with my passionate pen! The words are pouring out and I have had to pull over in the middle of the freeway (safely, of course!) to get it all down before it leaves me for good!
The funny thing is, when I chose to chill the fuck out and allow it to come to me, it opened the floodgates and now I write more than ever before and it feels so much nicer. It’s a richer experience.
The idea is to set the intention and say or write what you want, then let it go. Carry on and get happy.. When you let go and surrender, you are creating space for ideas and magic that is supposed to come. Like the wise words of Abraham Hicks, “things are always working out for you.” And trust me, they are!
Stop going upstream and start allowing yourself to go with the current downstream. The harder you resist, the more negative vibrations you are putting out to be manifested. How can you possibly manifest your desires when you don’t even feel good! It’s impossible!
Half the time we feel so damn rushed…”Oh gosh, I have to get that blog started; oh gee, I must hurry up and get that novel written or start that business!”
This is all too much pressure!
My bestie felt this way after she decided to leave her job and travel the world. She wanted to travel the globe, start a business and all the while working on her heartfelt blog that she had been working on for quite some time. She felt so much pressure that she had to just stop!
She had to remind herself that she was travelling. She needed to pull herself back into the present moment. Once she did that, it all started to flow. She learnt to surrender, how to take that pressure off and just be, allowing it all to come into perfect placement organically.
Everything you ever wanted is waiting for you. The trick is to get in alignment, and do the stuff that makes you feel good. Stay grateful.
Place your intentions. Hold that vision. Definitely work toward it, just not too hard. Less resistance and space is needed for it to come to life. Feel good, trust and receive.
Once you are in alignment (you will know), you will start vibrating at a higher frequency, the perfect level to manifest. This, my friends, is when life starts to show you its magic! Random things start happening and slowly you will start to see your vision come to life.
Choose a path of least resistance. Choose you.
