Whatever You Resist Gets Stronger
We go through life fighting and resisting the truth. What’s so is always what’s so. When we fight the truth, we magnify and give power to whatever we are resisting. Here are some examples to show how this works.
Imagine four large yellow balloons on the ceiling above you. Now, whatever you do, don’t think about them. You just thought about them. Don’t do that. What happens when you fight the yellow balloons? You keep thinking about them. In fact, the more you fight the yellow balloons, the more yellow balloons you get.
Resisting the balloons doesn’t make them go away. It gives them power and keeps them alive. The same principle applies in every area of life. Whatever you resist gets magnified.
Have you ever had a relationship with someone who had a characteristic that you couldn’t stand? What happened to the characteristic when you resisted it? It grew. It grew in your perception and it actually showed up more in the world around you.
Look at any area of your life that isn’t working. This will be an area where you are resisting. Something is the way that it is and you are fighting it. By your resisting, you give this area of life power and keep it from clearing up.
Let’s look at fear. Fear is created by resisting a future event. For example, if I have a fear of losing someone, I am resisting the future event called, “losing the person.”
The more I resist losing the person, the bigger my fear. The bigger my fear, the more I feel threatened. The more I feel threatened, the more I hang on and act destructively. This in turn pushes the person away which brings me the very circumstance that I am resisting.
Look over your life and notice that whatever you fear and resist keeps showing up, over and over. It keeps showing up because you create it.
The key to being effective in life is to let go of your demands for how people and life should be. Surrender to the truth of what’s so. Restore your peace of mind and your ability to see clearly. Then take whatever action you need to have your life be great. That which you resist you draw to you, and you will perpetuate its influence upon your life. Resistance is fear, so it is something you need to Karmically resolve. The Law of Resistance assures that you let go of the fear by encountering it until you are forced to deal with it by learning conscious detachment.
Example: You may have a strong resistance toward people of the Asian race; Black race, Jewish race, your mother-in-law. Your resistance is fear. The quickest way to overcome that which you fear is through direct experience, thus you will reincarnate as an Asian, Black, Jew, or mother in-law in a future lifetime. When you attain Master of Life awareness and stop resisting [your fear] by consciously detaching from the negativity, the problem will be resolved. Most disharmonious situations are solved through a change in your viewpoint. By changing your perspective, you can usually eliminate the effects of a problem, and if you are no longer affected by a problem, you no longer have a problem, although nothing about the problem situation may have changed. Another aspect of the Law of resistance states, that which you resists, you become, if not in this lifetime, in a future incarnation.
