Resisting my Purpose

In my Coaching with God session yesterday, I explored the resistance I’m encountering as I move into a more complete alignment with my purpose. Today as I sat, still feeling the inner struggle, reflected by a sense of fatigue, I looked up from my desk to see a wonderfully vibrant rainbow. It reminded me of the beauty inherent in every moment and the purpose that infuses my every action – even when I might think otherwise.

I know I’m not alone in feeling this resistance to aligning my life with purpose. I see it in my clients and friends and family. In the past I have fought this resistance. Now I see that fighting it just leads to more of it. By fighting the resistance, I match its energy and vibration, thus attracting more of it into my life. “Like attracts like!” Or, in this case, you could use the negative corollary, “What you resist, persists.”

As I sat, watching that rainbow fade away, I could feel myself letting go of my resistance to the resistance. I know it sounds a bit strange, but as soon as I allowed myself to accept that resistance, it immediately began to release.

The resistance I feel to living on purpose serves a truly valuable function: It lets me know when I am close to my purpose. In the past, when I have been walking on a less purposeful path, this resistance has not been present. Sure there have been other uncomfortable symptoms and signs. But this specific resistance is clearly responding to my increasing alignment with purpose.

And so I welcome this feeling of resistance. I welcome this particular signature of fatigue. For I know that when it is here, I am getting closer to a life aligned with purpose.
