For anyone that has followed my work on any level, you already know that my angels are my teammates and I consult with them daily to gain clarity, understanding, wisdom, insights, support, and faith. When I am feeling burdened, I often say I am on the Struggle Bus. But the thing about my association with the struggle bus is that buses are always in motion and they are always stopping to let people on and off. So, when I feel like I am on the struggle bus my goal is to get off as soon as possible and preferably at a fabulous destination. 😊 Now, let me be clear. I am never alone on the struggle bus. My angels joyfully ride with me to keep me company and keep me in check. They offer their divine wisdom as to how to get off the bus and back into my high vibe groove and flow. But lately, I have spent way too much time on the struggle bus. I was truly beginning to wonder if my bus had some type of unlimited gas supply or something. I mean, why have we not made any stops? And, although I would never hope for another person to struggle, why do I feel so alone on this bus?
Well, if you have been feeling the same way I want to share with you how I work through times of resistance, even when it seems to linger a little too long.
First, you are not alone.
Second, resistance comes both internally and externally and it is important to look at both.
LET’S START WITH THE EXTERNAL RESISTANCE.
These are things like your computer failing you at the most inopportune time. The flat tire. The dropped phone calls. The traffic jams. The electricity going out right before your important Zoom meeting or spilling your coffee all down your suit right as you are heading out the door for that important meeting. Now, I know these things happen in life but what I’m talking about is a feeling that something is working against you. Purposely.
INTERNAL RESISTANCE IS DAUNTING.
Nothing is worse than knowing what you need to do but lack the desire or motivation to get it done. Or, have the motivation to get it done but struggle with focus, clarity, and direction.
Then there is the lovely doubt. The insecurities and wonderings making us question if what we have to offer really matters. There is the nagging feeling that everything is hard when in truth it is simple when we map out the plan, it just takes gusto.
The body and soul can feel the resistance too. It is not just a mental thing. The sense is like moving through wet concrete. As if something is trying to hold us back with as much strength and might as possible and we are aware we must take control and shift gears before we go down.
So how do we keep our head above it all so that we don’t lose sight of where we are meant to go? How do we get off the Struggle Bus???
Clear the Confusion
– First, ask your spiritual team if you are still on the right path. When resistance shows up it can make us question everything. So, instead of just assuming that the resistance is a roadblock telling you that you are headed in the wrong direction, ask. Gaining clarity in these moments is of utmost importance because otherwise, we get distracted, frustrated and then can become stuck.
– If the above action lets you know you need to go a different direction, great! You now know what to do. But if you have validated that you are on the right track, you know you have to stay focused and dig in. Be persistent regardless of the resistance. I know, I know. This is easier said than done. But now is the time to stand your ground and be unwavering in your trust and faith.
Uncover the Resistance
– Understanding where your resistance is coming from can be very enlightening and empowering. I want you to remember that when we have committed to making big changes it is completely normal to feel resistance. It is as if your old self and your ego team up against you because all they want is for you to stay in that place you’ve always been. There used to be a saying that said, ” The bigger the purpose the bigger the fear.” Well, I say, the stronger the resistance the greater the potential. You are here to live to your fullest potential, so, start asking yourself these questions?
Regardless of these obstacles, should I still be moving forward?
What will my reward be for not giving up?
If I do nothing and give up now, how will I feel tomorrow?
Are my goals more important than the discomfort I feel right now?
What help can I call on to move through this resistance?
How can I break up my action steps, so I feel less overwhelmed?
What choice and decision will honor my highest self?
You know yourself better than anyone and your honesty here is important. Often, when we uncover the true answers to these questions the resistance begins to loosen its grip. Acknowledgment is a power move that provides wisdom.
Now let’s talk about those angels that ride with me on the struggle bus. Who can you call on to help you gain momentum and stride again? Better yet, help you deflect all of that resistance like a superhero.
Here are my go-to spiritual helpers when resistance is my issue:
Archangel Uriel Helpful in getting my priorities straight and my mind clear and focused
Archangel Metatron For helping to clear self-sabotaging ways, overwhelm and procrastination
Archangel Raziel To help me remember who I am and what my connection to source/creator is
Archangel Ariel To stand in courage, conviction and lovingly claim my power
Archangel Jophiel To keep my thoughts positive and in alignment with my truth
Archangel Michael To protect me from any negative forces, including myself
It is super easy to call on your angels for help! You don’t even have to remember their names.
Just simply say “angels help” and they are with you and ready to assist!
Remember, the resistance does not last forever. There must be big positive changes on the horizon, so keep pushing forward! And, if I happen to see you on the struggle bus, I’ll give you a fist bump and a wink, so you know you are not alone.
Love and solidarity,
