Here are two of the most impactful quotes I’ve read, and they’re both by Carl Jung.
- What you resist persists.
- Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.
What I’ve realised is that these gems are linked and that we need to accept what is before we can change it.
For us to accept it we need to bring it to our awareness.
We cannot let go of something until we know what the something is.
I’ve noticed that simply noticing resistance is almost all of the work of letting go.
I’ve also noticed that asking yourself “what are you resisting?” puts you in a state of listening for the answer and this makes it easier to bring the unconscious into your consciousness.
Give it a go, it only takes a few minutes.
