Abraham-Hicks: The Path of Least Resistance

How practiced are you at following your path of least resistance? Abraham has been talking about this path for a while now.

Because we live way more complex lives than our parents and grandparents, it’s easy to buy into the idea that much of life is supposed to be complicated. But if we take the path of least resistance, life might be about…

What Is Resistance?

You can tell you’re in a state of resistance because you feel negative emotion about something. Feelings, as Abraham has been teaching us for decades, are your emotional guidance system at work. Positive feelings indicate we’re in the flow, which Abraham also calls “allowing.” Negative feelings indicate we’re blocking the flow, called “resisting.”

What are we resisting? Oh only all the good the universe has lined up for us in response to our decisions and desires over lifetimes. Sure some good stuff can squeak by the barrier of our negativity and get in. But it’s rare to meet anyone who lives in a continual, easy flow of receiving.  Most of us are too busy focusing on what’s wrong.

How can we get on the path of least resistance?

We have to use the emotional guidance system we were born with. We need to be aware of our feelings and refuse to tolerate the negative ones for too long.

I don’t mean to ignore negative emotion.

We need to acknowledge negative feelings first – because they are authentic indicators of something unwanted –  and then 1) clarify what it is we do want, 2) turn the situation over to the universe, 3) choose better-feeling emotions and 4) chill out and allow ourselves to feel good.

Then we have dealt with the negativity in a conscious way and chosen the path of least resistance.

But in our culture, letting go and chilling out is a real challenge. When stressed out or upset, we’re encouraged to suck it up and power through – techniques that push the negative emotion under the surface (for a while) but don’t heal it or shift our vibrational point of attraction.

In business we need to make more decisions that allow us to feel good.

Years ago I had a coaching client who claimed to want conscious cooperation with the Law of Attraction in her business (and more income). On the surface she sounded clear and willing. But she also had some very old patterns of resentment.  I recognized this but, feeling heroic, decided to work with her anyway.

For several months I worked really hard to help her release resentment and begin to allow in her good from the universe. Our sessions ran overtime, we exchanged long emails nearly every day, and I added in some bonus sessions so we would have more time to help her shift some old patterns.

As you can probably guess: it completely backfired. I was doing all the work and she was refusing to budge from her stance that the universe owed her. In a few months she quit coaching, and I felt hugely relieved.

It was a great learning for a relatively inexperienced coach. These days  I pay unflinching attention when my emotional guidance system says: stay away. As a result my clients are all lovely and amazing people!

If you have clients who exhaust you, you have 3 choices to let go of your resistance:

1. Let them know exactly what they have to do if they want to continue working with you.

2. Fire them.

3. Train yourself to take care of yourself as best you can and decide you will feel peaceful about the situation, drop the blame and take responsibility for your own feelings.

Which choice could you decide to make?

The sigh of relief that comes from a clear decision is, according to Abraham, a sign you have released your habit of resistance, placing you instantly on the path of least resistance and allowing in your good. Enjoy!

Law of Attraction and Your Block to Creating Miracles

OK so you’d love to figure out enough about Law of Attraction to guarantee you can create miracles on demand.  I get it – and it sounds fabulous to me too.

And I also know why it’s probably not happening for you.

Are you ready to know?  Here’s the truth:

You’re trying way too hard.  (See I know you, I really do. Hand me that mirror, would you?)

The reason you’re trying too hard is: you think you have to figure something out.

But you don’t!

Spiritual Entrepreneur: Re-ignite Your Business Passion

Feeling bored with your business?

It happens.

Most spiritual entrepreneurs experience great passion for their businesses in the early stages of launching and growing them.  We’re fueled by our inspiration and drive to help others, and we’re learning something new every day. It can be stressful – but never dull.

Later on boredom can set in. Though we might feel more comfortable with our businesses, they’re just not as exciting as they used to be.

We can tell ourselves this is “normal” … and it certainly is common… but does labeling boredom as normal make it OK? I don’t think so.

Because what we’d really, deeply love is to return to the passion.

Here’s how: Continue Reading »

Stop Worrying about Your “Blocks to Abundance” and Do This

Do you have “blocks to abundance” that keep you doubting the Law of Attraction?  Of course you do! It’s not possible to live in a culture that constantly broadcasts messages of scarcity without picking up the belief in the opposite of abundance: scarcity.

Once you have the believe in scarcity, it’s  going to manifest, on one level or another. For many business owners scarcity manifests around success and money, but we can also feel scarcity around  health, love, and anything else we believe we lack.

The damaging part about a belief in scarcity over abundance is not that you have this belief. Seriously.

What really messes things up is:  Continue Reading »

Abraham Hicks: We Teach Selfishness

The biggest reason I encourage all of my Law of Attraction coaching clients to listen to Abraham-Hicks is: we’ve all been taught it’s shameful to be selfish.  Yet, according to Abraham, that belief does us no good whatsoever.

Yes we are here to love and serve  others through our businesses. But – as you may have noticed – if we don’t first love and serve ourselves, we often have little vitality in us to help others.

Have you ever allowed yourself to carry out your work from a place of mental and physical fatigue, pushing yourself to keep giving in order to produce benefits for others – even as you felt increasingly exhausted?

I confess: I have done this plenty of times. And I bet you  have too.

When Abraham teaches selfishness, they’re reminding us that our first priority is to tend to our own personal connection with Source energy.

Because without that, we have nothing to give ourselves or anyone else.

When we’re connected to spirit, we can truly be of great benefit – not only to ourselves but to others and to the entire world. “One who is aligned with Source is more powerful than millions who are not,” Abe has commented many times over the 2+ decades I’ve been listening.

As children we were taught to do things and behave in ways that our parents, teachers and other authorities said were best for us, and because we wanted to please, most of us went along with the agendas of others.

But if you had your rebellious moments – and I hope you did – you also knew deep down that you were the real center of the universe.

Imagine the nerve! You as a child thinking you are the real center of the universe. What egotism!
