Are you Allowing or Resisting?
More than a decade ago if I would have been asked the question ‘Are you resisting or allowing?’ I would have not had a clue what that meant. Now, I have a pretty good idea of the difference between these two words, although my beautifully human self does not always practice the Art of Allowing…..
When I am resisting, I recognize I generally do not feel good. I will have a negative emotion that can range from boredom to despair, although I can happily say I have not visited despair in a long time. It is similar to the analogy my beloved mentor Abraham-Hicks speaks of placing your canoe in a fast-moving stream, turning your boat upstream and rowing very hard against a fast-moving current. We would not willingly do that because we recognize how laborious that would be, yet when we try to make anything happen or get anyone to see anything from our perspective, we are rowing against a fast-moving vibrational current.
When we let go of the oars, allowing our boat to turn, letting the current to carry us, the shift within our vibration or energy is one full of ease, we feel our bodies relax, we smile, we become joyful and we begin understanding we are living our lives in the way we were meant to live them. Listening to our emotions, listening from within, feeling our way through life is the way we allow wonderful things to come into our life experience. So, the next time you experience anything ask yourself, “Am I resisting or Allowing?” Your emotions will let you know ~
