Thriving is what is natural to you


Releasing Resistance

From the Teaching of Abraham with Esther and Jerry Hicks

This meditation appears in Getting into the Vortex.

“There is no greater advantage that you could offer to your body than this gentle releasing of resistance, right now—for your natural state is one of absolute Well-being, and in the absence of resistance, your physical body must thrive.

Relief always feels good, and there are many things of an action nature that can give you a feeling of relief: When you are thirsty, your body feels the relief of something refreshing to drink. When you are hungry, it is a relief to eat something. When you are tired, it is a relief to rest. But if you wait until your body is completely dehydrated before you drink something or completely emaciated before you eat something, your body can get far out of balance.

While it is possible to eventually bring your body back to a state of well-being—it is much easier to maintain a healthy physical balance than to recover it after losing it.

Most people never put themselves into the dramatic situation where they are without water or food to the point of doing damage to their physical bodies; however, it is not uncommon for people to deprive their bodies of something equally important: alignment with Source Energy.

Often people develop patterns of thought that hold them steadily in a state of negative emotion. And even though they grow accustomed to the feelings of overwhelment, anger, worry, blame, guilt, and so forth, the chronic negative emotions indicate strong patterns of resistance that are hindering to natural Well-Being.

In the same way that it is a good idea to drink when you feel the indication of thirst—and therefore maintain your Well-Being long before dehydration is experienced—it is equally important to change the thought and release resistance at the first indication of negative emotion. For while it is certainly possible to withstand negative emotion for long periods of time, it is not the optimal experience for the cells of your physical body.

When you learn to release resistance in the early, subtle stages, your physical body must thrive. Thriving is what is natural to you.”
