Path of least Resistance 1/2

Spiritual teacher Abraham Hicks speaks of choosing the path of least resistance in our every day lives. She expresses that if I continue to take the path of least resistance, the one that feels the best to me…then it all adds up to the most joyful journey possible.

When I was in active addiction, I only knew how to take substances that would lessen my resistance. I was a walking ball of static,tension and worry. There was no harmony until I put the substance in my physical system. This calmed the mind and allowed some satisfaction.

But then…it stopped working. The drugs the booze became a nightmare. The levels of darkness that I reached I shall not revisit today.

Today I am learning HOW to choose the path of least resistance without the chemicals. To make the decisions based on what feels best in my heart.

NOT what will please others. But what will add some positive momentum to my day. If it means not going to a family gathering then that’s just fine. If it means laying on the couch, taking a walk or not using my cell phone (the hell phone) for a bit then that is what shall be for me.

If I happen to piss someone off…oh well. It’s not my intention. But as my friend Bootsie often states “It’s always better to give a resentment than to get one.” Ha ha!!

But what I am finding more and more, that when I am listening to my true self and choosing this path, nobody is upset about it. I actually become more inspired sometimes to play with the others and do nice things for people. I am happier and wish to share it.

I am learning to listen to myself – the one that is kind- my spirit.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!

  1. We only ever give out what we are dear lady. If we are angry, we give that anger out, if we are happy, we give that happiness out. If we love ourselves, it is that love we give out. But It is our fears that block our love, but when we understand them they lose their power over us and we begin to truly give out that love we have found hidden beneath them. You have understood this and dis-empowered them, and found that love and happiness we ever look for…by understanding your fears. You are now free…beautifully, lovingly free as a calm and peace descends upon you, that unconditional love that God shares with us all, when we finally allow it in by removing those conditions that our fears hold us in, into our life ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

      1. It is showing you your truth, the beauty of life that was always there but we couldn’t see because of the blinders of fear. And now you can even see that blindness in others, the understanding of why we were blind by those fears is meant to happen this way so that we appreciate what we have endured and can now even guide others through it ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋
