solving problems

Problems Are Not Really Problems But Opportunities

In the Law of Attraction, there is a saying that “the problem and the solution are the same thing.”And when we resist anything, we will soon find ourselves feeling as though we have a problem. But if we accept the notion that the problem and the solution are essentially the same thing, we can stop resisting when we perceive a problem and open ourselves up to learn from it instead.  Becasue the truth is that when we resist the problem, we also resist the solution.
We could even reframe our “so-called” problems as a “challenges” or “as opportunities to learn and grow.”  We can write this off as just a semantic shift, but it has been proven that the language we use shapes our lives and defines aspects of our culture.  So shifting our language, does shift our perception, beliefs and hence our reality.  When we take this softer stance, we allow the solution to reveal itself to us as effortlessly as we open our eyes from a dream.
From the moment a situation presents itself that poses as a “problem,” decide that it’s not a problem but an opportunity to hear the message, the lesson, something important that the Universe is revealing to you.  So instead of wanting to “get rid of it,” accept it, sit down with it, pay attention to it in the way you would pay attention to a wonderful teacher.  Become open and teachable.  You can only do this if you are not being willful, resistant or denying the challenge.
Six Simple Steps for Understanding the Message and Discovering the Solution to any challenge:

1)  Face the situation. Accept it as it is. Don’t resist it. (This does not imply you like it or want it to continue.)
2)  Be still and suspend all judgments and conclusions
3) Open yourself up to non-local information about the problem.  This comes from your Higher Self and the Field.  Just be open to receive.
4) Refrain from going into fear, blame or anger (either at yourself or anyone else), doubt or anything else that you don’t want to feel.
5) Allow yourself to be totally open to seeing how this situation actually reveals to you some important information you wouldn’t have discovered without it.
6) Surrender to the Solution.  How to proceed or handle this challenge should now be clear to you.
Be patient.  After doing this process, if you feel you haven’t received the “solution,” know that you did receive the information and then release all concern about it, resting in the knowledge that you DO know.  Then as the next day or so unfolds, the solution will be clear to you.
Use this six-step process for any “challenge” that comes up and you will see how easily the insights come when you get friendly with your challenges rather than resisting them.  And in this friendliness comes the seamless shift to discovery and resolution.
Remember it doesn’t have to be a monumental challenge either.   Start practicing with the small stuff and then you’ll be able to handle the big stuff with equal ease.

Letting Go of Resistance

“What we resist, persists” so the mystics tell us!  Here is what to do instead…
In my last newsletter I wrote about abundance and suggested some ways of shifting into the feeling of abundance, which is essential for creating abundance in life.  During conversations with a clients who read my newsletter, I realized that some people may be confusing “shifting” into this feeling or that feeling with “resisting” or denying what they are feeling.  Resisting or denying is not, however, productive at all.  Anything that we resist persists so all the mystical teachings tell us (and experience confirms.)  
Resisting actually causes problems for us because it puts us in a state of conflict.  (I will write more about denial specifically in another newsletter but it’s pretty much the same in that denial is resisting, yes?)  When we instead enter into a peaceful relationship with whatever we’re resisting, we can be open to resolution.  This is true no matter what it is you’re resisting: the demands of your boss, the desires of your spouse, your child’s attitude.  It doesn’t matter what you are resisting, if you are resisting it, it’s going to cause you problems.
Though the process is the same whatever we may be inclined to resist, we’re going to talk here about feelings and thoughts coming up that are not what we want.  Rather than resisting them, trying to push them away, getting upset at ourself for having them, thinking we’ve done something wrong, we just get into a softer space of allowing.  If we allow them, and let them inform us, we can learn what we need to learn. Then from that place of willingness, we will be open to shifting into alignment with what we truly want. 
Here’s an example:  Imagine a woman is intending prosperity and she finds herself worrying about how she will pay her mortgage at the end of the month.  Rather than “resist” the feeling of worry, she has to start from the place of acceptance.  Accepting that she “feels worry,” she can then step into witness mode and allow her feeling of worry to inform her.  As witness, she might notice that she has just $1200 in her bank account and her mortgage is more than that and due in less than two weeks.  So she can learn from this that it is her willingness to give into the so-called evidence that is causing her worry.  Then, she can assure herself that there is no need to draw a conclusion that she doesn’t want here.  Staying open to the many possibilities of how the situation might resolve allows her to move back into a feeling of abundance.  She can begin to notice again all that she has in her life and how abundant she really is.  Even noticing the abundance in the universe, the air we breathe is limitless, the trees and the flowers we can see and smell are everywhere for us to enjoy.  
Notice in the example that the woman started with acceptance and moved gently back into alignment with her intention of abundance.  There is no scolding, no chastising, no upset with the self.  There is true acceptance of where one is, then a witnessing, and a gentle conversation from a place of willingness (not willfulness) which brings one back into alignment.
So take time to be open to whatever shows up for you.  Have the willingness to learn from your feelings and thoughts that you don’t want.  Don’t resist them.  At the same time, don’t give in to them, and spend the day focusing on them.  Enter into a friendly conversation with them and become the witness.  From this place, you can move back into alignment with what you truly want.
