This is a great quote from the Conversations With God book series: “What you resist persists, what you look at disappears”. It took me a while to figure out exactly what course of action this statement was suggesting. What was I resisting in my life, and how could just looking at it make it go away? It then dawned on me that it’s all about moving things to the surface of your consciousness. Let’s look at a few examples.
Many of us know someone that has a drinking problem. It might be a family member or a close friend, and I’m sure that you have tried to point this out to them many times with no success. An alcoholic will not get better until THEY decide there is a problem. In other words, they were probably resisting the fact they had a problem. By bringing it to the surface of their consciousness to “look at”, all of the energy is refocused from resisting the problem, to acceptance, then finally to focusing on a solution.
We can all use this process to solve ANY problems in our lives. What is it that you’re resisting? Take a moment to think about it. Is there anything that you have been struggling with in your life? Is it money…is it your weight? We can all take the first steps to resolution by using this process. Just look at the problem honestly…acknowledge the situation…forgive yourself…and refocus your attention on a solution. It sounds so simple! Don’t get me wrong, I know it’s difficult to look at ourselves in the light of truth. However, it must be done if you wish to create better conditions in your life.
