When we feel ease and flow we are at our best. So,
What’s the first step to change from struggle to ease in THIS moment?
The very first question to ask yourself is:
1) How much ease and well-being am I letting in right now?
This is a key question. Becoming aware of how we block ourselves from success is the very first thing to examine.
One way of shifting this habit of blocking yourself is to be intentional about your thoughts.
You basically have to train yourself to think differently and align more with your true self. Your true self is experienced in situations when you feel ease and flow. Your ego is experienced when you feel resistance and struggle.
For example, below is a simple example of a very common thought when you’re having a cold:
Thought 1: I don’t have time for this. I don’t want to be sick anymore (negative energy)
Thought 2: I’m going to listen to my body and rest some more. I welcome wellbeing (positive energy)
Say both out loud.
How does it feel to say each of them?
The feeling that comes up will guide you. The more you can be aware of when negatively charged thoughts come up, like in Thought 1, the better.
To increase your self-awareness and shift to more positive energy, like in Thought 2, every day has the potential to bring you out of feelings of struggle, resistance and to invite more ease and flow into your day.
“THERE IS NO SOURCE OF SICKNESS, THERE IS ONLY NOT LETTING IN WELLNESS.” -ABRAHAM HICKS
2) Keep transforming positive thoughts into positive realistic action.
This is key and it requires you to work on this from the inside out and keep doing so.
Stop in the moment and check-in with yourself before you are about to take action. You’ll catch yourself in the moment when the feeling of lightness comes over you as you think positive thoughts.
What is a realistic action for you is what feels easygoing, doable, exciting and flows naturally.
The second you are feeling resistance is when you have added on the expectations that causes you to detour from an action that aligns with your intention.
So it’s about catching yourself in the moment to let that first feeling of ease direct your action. This is the key to stop struggling, catching yourself, and pivot out of the struggle.
For example, if you align with a thought of negative charge, it’s likely you’ll take negative action (over-eating, over-….., or not …..)
If you align with the positive charged thought, you’ll likely take positive realistic action in that moment and you will feel the ease.
Something to be aware of is that often our own expectations are enough to throw us into resistance, but when we decide to align with other people’s expectations as well, the resistance escalates even more.
3) Stay in an energy of positive expectation as you welcome what’s to come next.
We create our own reality, we have the power to co-create! When we have a desire, it is realized by you. Your desire has an energetic charge that is picked up by the universe.
When you stay in this feeling of positive expectation you automatically show up for any new experience with an energy of positive expectation. This way you don’t invite the feelings of struggle to the table.
