If you have found yourself in profound resistance, rather than pushing against that resistance, we suggest you simply choose something that feels lighter to you. When you are in such a state, it can be difficult to know what you need in order to allow yourself to move forward with greater ease. While your brain may not know what you need, your body and spirit can easily identify what would feel lighter. So simply ask yourself, “What can I do that would feel lighter than I’m feeling right now?”
Resistance is heavy. Lightness is just that – light. Identifying what feels heavy or light is a skill set that every single human being on the planet has, so there is no special training, understanding of energetics, or enhanced sensitivity required. You can embrace that innate ability because it is impossible to get it wrong since the answer is always unique to you. It is something you will always know without doubt.
As you choose anything lighter you choose to disengage from resistance, which will naturally induce more flow, relief, and forward movement. This will allow you to incrementally move out of your discomfort, without pressuring yourself into any specific practice, since what feels lighter could be a myriad of things. Further, it is an empowering exercise that helps you gain confidence in your self awareness and ability to self direct from whatever energetic state you may find yourself in.
Your heart always knows what is expansive and light, so it is a wonderful way to shift out of the mind and into the heart without the need for specifics. Once you have moved into a lighter state, however you choose to get there, you’ll be much more aligned with getting back into your spiritual and co-creational practices, and before you know it, you’ll be flowing along as if the resistance never even happened. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
Shelley’s note: I’m wishing everyone a very happy fall equinox! Equinoxes serve to not only lock in our progress but also to ground in some balance. I like to think of it like when people climb a mountain and need to make camp to allow themselves to assimilate to their environment and not get altitude sickness. This is an opportunity for us to catch our breath, adjust to the higher altitudes we’ve reached, and make a plan moving forward. I wish you all a wonderful day celebrating the progress you have made through the summer of eclipses. May we all embody greater balance, grace, light, and ease moving forward!
