Spirit Quest Journeys

We’ve all heard the phrase “Resistance is Futile.” Yet many of us spend our lives living in resistance. We resist bedtime as a child. We resist our parent’s or teacher’s rules as teens. We resist the programming we received as children when we are young adults. We resist. But yet...we conform. We conform to the roles we were born into. We conform to what social and cultural norms or religious beliefs say we should be, how we should act, how we should feel, what job we should do, who we should love, who we should vote for, and who we should care about and who isn’t worth our time or effort. This happens unconsciously and before we know it, life is just a series of minutes, hours, days, years of routine that leaves us feeling numb, angry, frustrated, desperate for anything different.

What if I tell you there’s more to life than this. This so-called life...is an illusion. It’s time to wake up. Peel off the layers upon layers of cherished beliefs and non-beneficial energies that are no longer serving you or our society and find out who you really are. What are your feelings versus the feelings of those around you? What are your thoughts versus the thoughts of your family, your friends, your television program, your religious leaders? What is working for you? What makes you feel alive? What makes you want to laugh and sing and dance and JUST...BE...HAPPY? We all have those beliefs that affect the way we view our life and our world. It’s time to figure out who decided that was your belief. Who decided that was your role this lifetime? Is it serving your higher good? Is it serving the higher good of the greater consciousness? If the answer is no, then release it. It is no longer serving you and it's time to let it go with love and laughter.

When we start peeling back the layers, overcoming resistance is often part of the process. And that’s okay as long as you continue to put one baby step in front of the other and move through that resistance to integrate and come to terms with what needs to be processed.  It is difficult to start standing in your power of who you really are and who you came here to be in order to learn what you came here to learn. When you feel the energy start shifting, your feelings, emotions, beliefs may become foreign to you. Sometimes it’s hard to tell which way is up. Sometimes it feels like a dam about to break and you are unsure if you will come through the break unscathed, improved, or not at all..that you will somehow break in a way that can’t be fixed. Breathe...just take a deep cleansing breath. Know that the Universe is here to support you. To love you. To help you through this. You are not alone and you have a team excited and waiting to help you further down your path. When you allow the flow of life’s emotions and circumstances to surround you and wash over you without judging that you are feeling a way you deem negatively, the energy of those emotions just flow up and out quicker than if you resist and stuff and turn off the emotions. The resistance prolongs the pain. The resistance manifests itself in physical ailments. The resistance hurts. Deeply. On all levels - mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

You are a divine being. You are here on this planet to love, to laugh, to bring joy, to live abundantly, to thrive and flourish. Embrace the real you. Love all the parts of you. Remember, you can’t know love without understanding it’s shadow hate. You can’t know joy without embracing sorrow. You can’t know laughter without fully knowing sadness. Fully embrace your emotions. All of them. They are neither good nor bad. They just are. Allow yourself to feel and release and breathe through the resistance. You CAN do it and the Universe will support you and cheer you on!
