Is Your Business in a Rut? 3 Steps to Overcome the Overwhelm

Clearing the emotional blocks that are standing in the way to you making money living your purpose... three ways to heal resistance right now!

It is so interesting how resistance shows up for us as new healers and health coaches. Do you often find yourself feeling stuck, tired, overwhelmed and full of reasons why your new online business will not work? Are you getting clearer about your desires, you finally feel like you know what your life purpose could be… 

Just as you’re about to have a huge quantum leap and then all of the sudden you are falling in to old unhealthy habits and loosing sight of your vision. Why?

  • You can’t get up in the morning it’s so hard.
  • Falling in to a downward spiral…
  • You’re not smart or qualified enough to help.
  • Stuck because you don’t have any money.
  • Who are you to be a coach or a healer?
  • Why does it feel so hard to live your purpose and desires?

Why does resistance seam to show up just as you are about to have a breakthrough?  

You wake up, on the day you are going to get so much done, with a heavy dark cloud of self-doubt, an illness or an emergency that suddenly consumes your whole day. It can feel like the world, your body, your family, your day job are all conspiring against you. Why are you in a constant state of second-guessing yourself?

Today I am going to show you how in three simple steps you can heal this relationship that you are having with resistance. 

1| You have total control of your resistance ~ even though it can feel like the opposite sometimes. Your life is not happening to you, you are creating it! You might be thinking why would I be creating resistance to something that I want to do?

You are not consciously creating it: resistance is rooted in our subconscious, the part of you who wants to keep you safe. When things are new and different your subconscious tries to protect you by keeping things the same. Thus you fall back into old patterns that feel comfortable. The more aware of this truth that you are the more you can shift out of it.  So start observing your “resistance” as it comes up with out self-judgment. Become aware of how your subconscious mind is trying to keep things the same and keep you safe.

2| Fear is the root of your resistance ~ how to transition into love. Even though it is not obvious why we are feeling stuck, coming up with excuses or getting sick every time we make movement in our business or toward living our purpose, there is only one reason that resistance shows up. Fear! You might be feeling like why would I be afraid of living my life purpose or helping other people live healthier lives? It is all rooted in the subconscious and our child hood programming.

So you have two options, you could spend years in therapy and hypnosis to try to heal your past or you can learn how to choose love over fear.  Are you ready to choose love?

This is so fun and so simple! Next time resistance shows up in the form of overwhelm, lack of clarity, excuses, illness, lack of motivation or depression: instead of choosing the usual path of negative self talk and self-judgment ~ choose self-love! In you’re lowest of low, in the midst of your downward spiral choose to encourage yourself, to compliment and build yourself up!

3| Surrender and ask for help ~ you do not have to do it alone. When you can shift out of self hate and judgment for not showing up, not finishing the task, not completing your to do list, you are in a more open receptive state of mind. With this self-love practice you have softened into a space of receiving… this is what you actually want anyway. You want to receive more money, more freedom, more community and more clients.

You may be feeling vulnerable; you were just knocked down by resistance. However you have been able to maintain self-love and now you have an opportunity. This is the important part. Ask for help to stay on track next time! Reach out to a friend and ask for accountability, reach out in your community for resources, hire a coach, join a group mastermind, go to therapy or counseling.

There are so many free resources out there, do not let yourself fall into resistance and fear around asking for help, stay in a place of self love and reach out! You cannot do this all alone!

A Quick Recap ~ How to Heal Resistance! 

1. Observe your resistance without judgment, start to notice patterns and cycles.
2. In the midst of falling off course or feeling stuck allow yourself to find compassion and love for yourself.
3. Open up to an energy of receiving and ask for help in your community.

Beauty this is your time to shine and I do not want you to be on this hamster wheel forever. Start interacting and reaching out now!
