I run into resistance. You run into resistance. Home internet business, money resistance, domestic resistance, we all run into it. What do you decide to do once you hit resistance? Run and hide? Or do you get angry? Or do you seek solutions. I am no Zen monk. I get angry at times. But these days I seek solutions within seconds or minutes. This is because I want to succeed and be happy. I do not want to fail and be angry. My desire to be happy and at peace and to succeed overrides my love of comfort. Are you in the same boat?
I monitor my mind. I watch old habits arise. If I feel angry or agitated I slow down. I watch my emotions. I observe my energies. I wish not to anger myself any longer, because I know that panicking, or getting angry, or forcing things makes my job harder, and harder and harder. Sometimes I forget to express gratitude for where I am so I move into a low energy space where I tend to panic when resistance arises. I still have plenty of blocks, but I tend to watch the blocks, and not act on these emotions as persistently as I used to. You must change your habits in dealing with your feelings when you feel panic arise when things get tough.
Maybe you have felt the pain of being poor and react to any money situation with a panicky mindset. Or perhaps you have failed with your home internet business for years and panic when you see few opt ins or dollars generated through the home biz. I have been there, and I know getting beyond these pain points means learning how to observe these feelings instead of reacting to these energies. Is this easy? Yes, but it feels uncomfortable to observe and respond when for many years you learned to react. Reacting feels normal, even though you feel miserable, and angry, and panicky, after you get into a fight with your spouse, or run into any resistance. Experiencing pain provides you with an opportunity to overcome suffering.
Practice watching your feelings. I skipped meditating this morning but once I publish and share this post I will sit. I know the importance of reaching a space of expanded awareness. I know you must practice observing your emotions if you are to let go panicky feelings and replace the energies with calm, peaceful feelings when things get tough. You cannot immunize yourself from resistance but you can embrace energies arising from these resistant periods and release the feelings immediately. You can adopt a different perspective. The choice is yours.
