Carl Jung so aptly wrote, “What you resist, persists.”
When we begin to understand personal patterns, and bring into our awareness that which does not serve us, we can begin to shift our lives. Don’t ignore those negative coping mechanisms. They are there for a reason. What’s the underlying reason? What are they masking? Don’t resist thinking of them. Bring awareness, with gentle self compassion. Then create a plan for making a change.
And the journey to your own personal Shift in consciousness unfolds.
What are you resisting in your life? What makes you upset if you are to think of them?
Depression? Anxiety? Poor eating habits? An unhealthy relationship? Low self-esteem?
What if you were to take a look at these things. It’s scary to look at the shadows of our life. Enlist the support of a guide, a therapist or coach to help you get through them. Stop resisting them. They are in your life for a reason. Our shadows are simply a language of the body. Masking something for you to look more deeply upon. To uncover a deeper part of your life. Are you eating poorly because you are working too hard at a job that doesn’t fulfill you? Are you in an unhealthy relationship because you don’t feel like you deserve to be truly loved? What is the deeper part of your shadow? Don’t resist. Gently move forward to create a Shift and redefine your life.
Love, Light and good Health,
