Whatever You Resist Grows

When you resist, you magnify & give power
to whatever you are resisting


At any moment, your life is exactly the way that it is. This is true whether you like it or not. The people in your life are the way that they are, the circumstances of your life are the way that they are, and you are the way that you are. Everything may change tomorrow, but at any moment, "what's so" is always "what's so."

Learn how we can support you

When you are at peace with the truth of "what's so," you have peace of mind. You see your situation clearly and can see what needs to be done. You are creative, resourceful, and very effective.

When you fight the truth of “what’s so,” you become full of fear and upset. You get tunnel vision and lose your ability to see clearly. You also magnify whatever you are resisting.

The Law of Resistance

One of the most powerful ways that we create in our lives is by resisting. When you resist, you magnify and give power to whatever you are resisting. Here are some examples that demonstrate this:

Imagine four yellow balloons on the ceiling above you. Now, whatever you do, don't think about them. You just thought about them. Don't do that. What happens when you fight the yellow balloons? You keep thinking about them. In fact, you can hardly think of anything else.

Resisting the thought of yellow balloons gives the thought power and keeps it alive. The same principle applies in every aspect of life. Whatever you resist gets magnified.

Now look at your relationships. Find a characteristic that you can’t stand in someone. Then notice what happens to the characteristic when you fight it. The characteristic grows. It grows in your perception and it shows up more in the world around you.

Your resisting does not make the characteristic go way. Resisting gives it power and makes it stronger.

Here is another example. Let's say that you are in a relationship and that you are resisting losing the other person. The more you resist losing the person, the more you hang on and the more you push the person away.

Now look at how you feel when someone resists the way you are and tries to change you. How do you feel about changing? You don't want to. You get upset and become resistant. You don't want to change a thing.

The same thing happens when you resist someone else or any other aspect of your life. The very act of resisting makes whatever you resist more solid.

Look at the areas of your life that work great. These are areas where you can flow with whatever happens. Now look at the areas of your life that don't work. These are areas where you can't flow. By your resisting, you keep these areas from clearing up.

Take a moment now and look over your life. Notice that whatever you resist keeps showing up, over and over. It keeps showing up because you keep creating it. Now look at any relationship you have that isn't working. Notice how much you have been resisting the way the other person is.
