SPIRITUAL LAWS - The Law of Resistance

SPIRITUAL LAW - The Law of Resistance

Every time we focus on something we are ‘calling’ it towards us. With our thoughts and beliefs we invite people, situations, experiences and material things into our life. When they arrive, if we do not really want them, we try to push them away.

Many people invoke the Law of Resistance without being consciously aware that they are doing it. Your unconscious mind and the Universal mind work similar to computers. You cannot tell a computer ‘not’ to bring up a certain file if you have clicked on it, as it cannot accept negative instructions. It will assume you DO want that file and bring it up.

Your conscious mind can discriminate between a negative instruction and a positive one - but your unconscious mind is fully engaged cannot tell the difference.

If you think a thought or make a statement often enough it will access your unconscious mind. Some people have illness in their lives because they ‘resist’ illness. If you are continuously thinking ‘I don’t want to be ill’, the word ‘ill’ filters constantly into your unconscious mind … making you ill.

‘Don’t’, ‘can’t’, ‘won’t’ and ‘not’ are words which invoke the Law of Resistance. For example, the thought ‘I won’t ever find a perfect partner’ resists the perfect partner; ‘I don’t want to be poor’ brings about poverty; ‘I can’t live in that awful house’ keeps you living in that awful house; and ‘I won’t ever be like my mother’ ensures that you will become just like her.

On the positive side, statements such as ‘I am healthy’; ‘I deserve a perfect partner’; ‘I welcome riches’; ‘I live in a beautiful home’ bring that energy towards you.

“Never resist failure or poverty. Instead attract success, wealth and abundance. Always embrace the positive rather than resisting the negative.”

The Law of Resistance is triggered by ‘victim’ consciousness. A victim is someone who blames others for their fate, believes the world owes them, and they generally feel sorry for themselves. When someone is thinking ‘Poor me’ or ‘I am so unlucky’ they are being a ‘victim’ who is resisting abundance and generosity. If someone is blaming another for what is happening in their own life, then they are a ‘victim’ who is resisting taking personal responsibility for what they themselves have created.

When we feel angry or guilty we resist the joy of life and the magnificence of ‘Self’.
