Today I want to talk about a mindset issue that I recently went through where I dealt with some internal resistance towards something that I was trying to implement into my business. One thing that I am very conscious of is body awareness (thanks to my 15+ years of yoga practice) and this also applies to our minds.
Resistance can be tricky. Sometimes we are resistant to something out of fear (fear of failure, fear of getting hurt, fear of making the wrong decision). In those cases, it’s important to acknowledge that resistance but not get stuck in it. Acknowledging it and then taking some sort of action forward will help push through that fear barrier and move you closer to what you want.
But, on the other hand, sometimes that resistance is there to truly protect us or guide us away from something that is just not right. Remember the old adage, “listen to your gut”? Sometimes your gut is telling you that something’s not right and maybe you should stop or revisit whatever it is.
Discernment between the two takes practice and time. It takes an awareness that is only cultivated when we start tuning into our bodies and reconnecting with our intuition. If you’re in this practice stage (which truly is all of life), then be patient with yourself and give yourself a lot of love and grace.
Ultimately, it all comes down to the need to actively pay attention to our thoughts and our feelings so that we can better understand what is going on with our body and our mental health. The more in tune we can get with ourselves, the healthier and happier we will be.
