My classes, workshops, courses and individual sessions that people attend, aim to create a safe place where a person can spend some quality time contacting what’s ticking away inside them subconsciously which affects their daily life, behaviours and health in very big ways.
I recently read a book recommended by a colleague, titled ‘Turning Pro’. It’s a simple easy to read book. In it the author talks about the difference between an amateur and a professional in life.
A quote from the book:
“Resistance hates two qualities above all others: concentration and depth. Why? Because when we work with focus and we work deep, we succeed. Resistance wants to keep us shallow and unfocused. So it makes the superficial and the vain intoxicating.”
Mindfulness Meditation and Body Based inner work gives you time to concentrate and go deep. Without depth and focus it is difficult to accomplish anything of substance that you feel satisfied with. True satisfaction comes from your inner spirit, your soul. Contacting this inner spirit part of you from your intellect alone cannot normally produce the depth required. It can only simulate.
A lot of people go through life simulating and never really facing their resistance.
You need to face your resistance in order to go deeper and become more healthier and authentic.
Facing resistance can arise when you are avoiding going somewhere you know is good for you, events of substance. Feel your resistance, the part that’s giving you all the reasons not to go. This is a good sign – for you are now going deeper and accessing old out dated programs that are not assisting you to live effectively today.
Feel them and be with them. Don’t try to change them, don’t judge them and don’t hate them. Accept that they are there right now and take the risk to allow them to release in the way that they didn’t get the chance to, when they were first formed. If this is too difficult to do alone, then seek out a therapist that can keep you safe, deep and focused long enough for this release to occur.
