What you resist persists
Wednesday, March 28, 2007
For some reason this phrase keeps going through my head today. I think it is because when I was in therapy doing a journey process today, in the middle of it, i was thinking, anywhere but here. I am willing to do anything but this. Why do I have to do this now??? Surely I have lots of other things I can work on. But, in keeping with the spirit of trusting my inner wisdom to guide me on the right path instead of my brain (which has clearly steared me wrong for 37 years), I went with it. I am not saying I went into it without fear or trepidation. In fact, I was terrified. Not really of anything physically happening. After all, i was safe in my therapists office. But emotionally, it was a scary place. Seems odd now looking back, that I could be afraid of something in my own head. But yup, there I was, shaking in my boots (ok, running shoes). But I did it. I didn't resist this time. And you know what happened?????? The most amazing thing!!!! I got through it and the emotions attached just dissapated. It was facsinating. And just when I thought that I had had all the life changing experience a person needs in a month, here was another one. And it was awesome (once I was through it). And I called my friend and fellow journey practitioner in training and told her about the experience and I was just laughing and jubilent. What a release. And to imagine that moments before I had been terrified.
And it is true that what you resist persists. And there are many examples in my life, but this time, it was a different kind of example. It was, "what you embrace you can heal and control". HUM. I like that. I think I will have to keep putting that into practice. Who knows where I will go from here!!!!??
To the moon, Alice, to the moon.
I wish you well on your journey's.
