Are you receiving little winks from the Universe encouraging you to go for it, but either aren’t noticing them, or talking yourself out of following through?
What would our live’s be like if, instead of resisting the unexpected nudges, dreams, and desires we experience, we learned how to follow them instead?
I had an experience recently that reminded me of how much I’ve lost over the years because of my resistance to an experience, or an idea, or an adventure that was presenting itself to me. These weren’t things that I had to go out and search for.
These were things – experiences, ideas, identity shifts, etc. – that were right in front of me. All I had to do was say “Yes!”. Instead I pulled back, hesitated, until the experience disappeared. What I was left with was a feeling of regret. Regret that I had allowed myself to remain small, to stay deeply entrenched in my ever shrinking comfort zone, and to say “No” when I really wanted to say “Yes!”.
Fortunately for me, this recent experience opened my eyes to my resistance and the price I was paying for living in my resistance, in time for me to stop myself from turning away.
So I said “Yes!”.
And it felt surprisingly good!
My new approach to these unexpected experiences that have a strong pull to them, is that they are winks from the Universe, telling me that this is a good direction for me to follow!
What is your resistance holding you back from?
What experiences, signs, omens, intuitive hits that are winks from the Universe, is your resistance preventing you from enjoying?
What are you doing when you feel this little pulls of resistance?
What are you thinking about that ignites these little pulls – they don’t have to be very strong. In fact, sometimes they can be very gentle and fleeting.
What are you thinking about or being asked to do, where your first reaction is “Yes!” but changes to “No!” after you’ve had a moment or two to think about it. (That initial “Yes!” was probably your intuition telling you to go for it. That followup “No!” was likely your fears, insecurities, or negative self-talk talking you out of it.)
Are you resisting your call to manifest your best good life?
