Manifesting and Resistance
A couple of months ago I did a post dealing with manifesting fears, the things that come up when you're working on manifesting something. I'm still having some issues so I've been thinking about this subject more and I decided it would be good to do a follow up post about resistance. :) You can check out the original post here: http://fallingpetalsuk.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/dealing-with-manifesting-fears.html
I did an internet search using the same sentence as the title of the post above and the top result was an article by Steve Pavlina about manifesting intentions without resistance: http://www.stevepavlina.com/blog/2006/11/manifesting-intentions-without-resistance/
He talks about how your fears can hold you back from manifesting the things you want because you're afraid of what will happen when your dreams come true, the "side effects", as he says. I think that this is one of the biggest things that can hold you back. Steve suggests doing an exercise where you write down the fears you have around manifesting your intentions. I've tried something like this before and I'm going to try it again.
Here's another article about 4 ways to overcome resistance: http://www.applythelawofattraction.com/overcome-resistance/
No 3 (Raise your vibration) mentions blowing bubbles. I actually was blowing bubbles yesterday, before reading this article! lol.
Also here are a couple more posts on resistance from two of my favourite sites:
Deliberate Receiving: http://www.deliberateblog.com/2013/07/19/quick-loa-questions-volume-17-negative-energy-resistance-and-thoughts-vs-emotions/
Life Made To Order: http://www.livelifemadetoorder.com/blog/law-of-attraction-resistance/
In the Deliberate Receiving post Melody Fletcher (site owner) talks about resistance coming up as you move towards what you want. If you have a lot of resistance then you keep hitting obstacles as you move towards your dream. I think in some cases that the closer you come to manifesting your desire, the more resistance you hit. Of course, that doesn't happen all the time- it depends on how much resistance you have (a lot of the time it's probably related to fear and/or doubt) and (in my opinion) what kind of thing you want to manifest because some desires are stronger than others and you have limiting beliefs around them- but it does happen. I've experienced this personally.
I hope these links are helpful if you're also having some resistance come up for you as you work on manifesting your dreams. :) If you have felt this way, do you have any tips for moving through it?
