VideoComments Off on Meditation to Learn from Your Resistance to Change
Resistance to moving forward is part of the human condition. Any goal worth having is going to stir up a reluctance to change. But resistance can teach you a lot, about why you’re reluctant and what you need to do to take action. Use the questions in this meditation to uncover what’s behind your resistance and what you can do to overcome it.
you for joining me. Are you resisting taking an action or decision that you
know would allow you to reach your goal? If so, welcome to the human race.
Whenever you want to make a significant change in your life, you’re going to
meet with some inner resistance to moving forward, right? Sometimes, there’s a
good reason for the resistance, like you don’t have everything you need yet.
Other times, it’s just a fear of change or fear of failure.
Linda-Ann Stewart, a vision strategist, and I’ve worked with hundreds of
clients over the years to overcome their resistance to achieving their goals.
Resistance has a lot to teach you, but you have to be willing to listen to what
it’s trying to tell you. Asking the right questions is a way to discover what’s
holding you back and how you can move forward.

some area where you’re resisting change. It could be personal, like changing a
habit or dealing with an ongoing issue, or it could be professional, like
opening up to a new opportunity. Just choose one place where you’re resisting.
Examine the issue and how you feel about it.
we’re going to ask some questions. Don’t worry if you don’t get any immediate
answers. Those answers may come in a few minutes or hours, when you’re doing
something else entirely. Right now, it’s just important to ask the questions,
exactly are you resisting?
are you resisting moving forward? Is it fear, or some other emotion? Do you
need some other piece to be in place? Why are you resisting moving forward?
would happen if you didn’t resist? If you just let go and moved forward? How
would that affect your life?
are you trying to preserve/hang onto by resisting? Is it worth it?
are you giving up by deciding to move forward? Is it something you still want,
or have you outgrown it?
might you receive from moving forward? Is it better than what you have now?
can you make this change less threatening? How can you let go of your
resistance and make it easier to move forward?
answers to these questions may not come right away. The answers may surface
over the hours to come. Just keep your mind open to recognize the answers, and
know that you can choose to act on them or not. Open your eyes.
I said, it doesn’t matter if you got any answers right away. The important
thing is to ask and be open to the information. Your subconscious will deliver
what you can accept and work with, maybe today, tonight, or tomorrow. You can
take what your subconscious tells you and make decisions that are best for you.

in one of the most important skills to have if you want to be successful,
whether personally or professionally.
But because of our current crisis and disruption of our routines, focus
is hard to grab onto and maintain, isn’t it?
Your attention is taken up with the immediate and the urgent, right? And
there’s so much that’s out of your control right now, which splinters your
focus even more, doesn’t it?
for right now, just focus on what you can control. You can control what you do,
your decisions, and your response to immediate situations. Just paying
attention to what you can control lowers your stress level and you have more
focus on one thing at a time. Just one thing. The brain can focus only on a
single task at a time. When you’re thinking about or doing too many things at
one time, you’re “task switching” and that exhausts your ability to
function. So when you’re doing something, focus completely on it, if only for
these two strategies, pretty soon, you’ll feel on more stable ground. And
you’ll be able to pay attention to more than just what’s right in front of you.
And then, amazingly, you’ll be able to start to plan for the future.
